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.

'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.
