Chelsea Are Not 'In Control'

United dropped two points at Blackburn Rovers today and, coupled with our defeat to Chelsea last Saturday, we are now one point behind the Blues having played a game more. Sir Alex conceded that we are massive outsiders to win the league now.

"It`s going to be very, very difficult to win this league now.'

"We`ll have a lifeline if Chelsea blow it, but in their eyes they have an easy game against Bolton on Tuesday. They`ll expect to win that and that would put them four points clear.'


And they will win that, no doubt. They have recovered from their Champions League exit and are now flying at a crucial stage of the campaign. Therefore it's not going to be difficult to win the league: it's going to be utterly impossible for United. We have lost it, get over it. We lost it last Saturday, as a matter of fact. Even today's game was only a mere formality. Chelsea are not in control - they are Champions.

Let's face facts for a moment - Fergis is completely past his sell buy date and needs to go soonest!!! Get a young manager with potential, intelligence and class -someone like Paul Ince would be magic. Can you imagine?

Wswilly, you have been moaning about Paul Ince for a long time now, I don't think he is the man to fill Fergies boots

Pathetic attempt at mind games from Fergie -- it's not over until it's over, and he'll know that better than most.

I don't see Chelsea winning all the remaining games. I think we will have 2 draws in the remaining 5 games or a draw and a win - no way we can win all the remaining games (Chelsea), so if we manage 2 draws and 3 wins till the end then we'll still be champions as I don't see Arsenal winning all their games and even if ManUtd win all the remaining games, I don't think they will have a better goal difference come the end.
