'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Blues Just Keeping The Title 'Warm'

Gary Neville insists Chelsea should make the most of their Premiership success ... because the balance of power is set to swing back to Manchester.

The way United took Newcastle to task in the victory on Sunday was achieved with conviction and showed the watching TV audience that United are close to being able to match their big-spending London rivals.

Neville: 'If we can get to that level week-in and week-out, I don't care what other teams buy - it'll be difficult for them to live with us.

'That would be fantastic and that's what we expect to happen. We expect over the next few years we're going to start winning championships. Hopefully we'll go and do it.

'We're blessed ourselves with the finances the club have and what they've spent on players over the past few years. So we can't complain about what other clubs are spending. We've got to do our own job.

'But sometimes, certainly in the build-up to (United's treble season in) '99, we had to go through a lot of defeats and a lot of heartache to get to that point. And maybe this is what we're having to do again, to build our way through it step by step - we can't just jump.

'You need a huge step to go from two seasons ago when we finished fourth. To be champions we have to build it up again and hopefully we can get closer each year.'

Oh, that's so sweet. You guys keep saying it and it's bound to come true.

I think United will be a much bigger force to contend with next season, but then again, so will Arsenal and Liverpool. The biggest problem though is that Chelsea can continue to improve, particularly if they add Ballack and a quality striker - it might just be a gap too large to bridge for the rest of us.
