United Have Already Won The League

Everton have beaten Liverpool so Manchester United have won the league. Sounds good but it's only the Reserve league - we've won that for the first time since 2006, when Giuseppe Rossi was still a key player in that side.

'Whenever we`ve appointed a new Reserve team coach, I`ve always explained to them what a difficult job it is because it`s subject to what I need. I may pull out three or four players from a training session or I might say, 'these players can`t play for you on Thursday because they`re on standby for me on Saturday'. So it`s a difficult job.'

'Oliver Norwood and Corry Evans do really well and have a good attitude towards the game. That`s an important thing and Ole and Warren have maintained that attitude right through the team.'

Now we're back in 2006: the Reserves have won the league and it is almost certain that the first team will finish second to Chelsea although mathematically it is still possible that we'll overtake them. Realistically, though...
