Whatever Happens Tonight, It's Been A Great Season

Whatever Happens Tonight, It's Been A Great Season

Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson wanted to win the Double this season - it was a clear aim since February. Yet it's not a reason to brand this season a failure if we miss out on the Champions League trophy.

We all know that we are not guaranteed a win, even though if fate and destiny would decide the outcome then we should be the winners. But we can blow it, no doubt, as a resilient Chelsea team have the means to thwart us in our quest for the ultimate glory.

If we lose, fans will undoubtedly say some harsh words, condemn players who don't deserve it just out of disappointment. They should not do it: it's been a great season.

We won the league, playing exciting attacking football and scoring plenty of goals despite a horrendous start when we could not hit the back of the net to save our lives. We witnessed plenty of thrillers, and United won most of those.

We had our fair share of euphoria, jubilation, excitement and thrill. And we even lifted a trophy so we have plenty to be cheerful about.

Whatever happens tonight, I'd like to congratulate our players and say thanks for this wonderful season - and it will still be remembered as a wonderful season even if we fall at this final hurdle.

Of course I do not want to suggest we'll lose: I strongly believe in victory. My point is only that the outcome of this match should not cloud the way how we remember this campaign and how we judge the efforts and performances of our players.

Bring on Chelsea!
