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

What Canto & Hoddle Have In Common

Eric Cantona and Glenn Hoddle are no strangers to controversy and both were players with exceptional skill - but they are brought together here only because they think we'll bring our trophy back.

Manchester United are six points clear at the top as you undoubtedly know and only two late, late Arsenal goals stopped us extending it to nine points. But six is enough, according to Messieurs Cantona and Mr. Hoddle.

'United can beat Chelsea in the league,' Cantona told the Daily Mirror. 'There is no doubt about that.

'They are stronger than Chelsea at the moment and will be for a long time.

'They brought in young players like Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, and Sir Alex Ferguson has a lot of experience helping young players. Not all managers can do that.

'United are strong, but have to prove they are a great team. They can win the Treble and they need to do it.'

Hoddle was not so demanding: he wasn't talking about the Treble.

'I think there's a lot of twists and turns still to come.

'I can't see Chelsea maintaining the poor form that they are in. When they get John Terry back then they'll pick up again, so they'll put pressure back on Manchester United.

'I think that Manchester United will hang on but I think it will be an exciting finish rather than the last two seasons, which were done and dusted three or four games before the end of the season.'

And finally, read the opinion of a certain Andy Cole who is qualified enough to talk about a Treble...

'Since 1999, the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and even United have aspired to repeat the treble because it is such a unique thing to do. But if anyone can do it again it would be United,' said Cole.

'You need a bit of luck to do the treble and we definitely had that so who knows? I think it is possible because Alex Ferguson has built another great team.'
