Seven Points Clear!

Seven points clear, at the top of the Premier League, as we head towards the last game of 2012, is a great situation to be in.

Although we`re not cracking open the champagne yet, we`re surely in poll position to regain the Premier League crown, but we continue to make things difficult for ourselves.

Yesterday, against Newcastle, we had to summon every last ounce of strength to come back not once from being behind, but three times. After the game, Sir Alex, as you`d expect, had a few words to say, remarking to the media,

"The statement we made was the performance. That was a championship performance."

"I just wish it was the last game of the season but it tells you about the fantastic courage of our team - we never gave in."

"We had a lot of bad decisions against us in the first half. That can demoralise a team. But they didn`t give in and that`s a great quality to have."

"Three times down, three times coming back - and then scoring the winner."

"It`s a really significant position for us. It puts us in a good position."

"December is always a month which tells you everything and hopefully after Wigan on January 1st, we will still be talking like this."

But, one thing still worries me - the manner in which we continue to have to score more than we let in!
