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

Congratulations Chelsea!

Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw at Arsenal to hand us the title. But their 10 men showed impressive courage and resolve.

Chelsea were down to ten men after a foul by Boulahrouz on Julio Baptista in the box but despite falling behind to a penalty and being outplayed in the first part of second half, they rallied impressively in the second and almost grabbed a win.

Well done but I think we vastly deserved it this season. As one supporter said when he was asked on Sky what had been the difference between the two teams this season:

'We've played quality football. They haven't'.

But all in all, it was a cracking title race, much more interesting than it had been in the last 3 years and I think everyone can be happy about that. The league table very rarely lies and once again, the best team won at the end. Most points, most wins, most goals scored, fantastic games and beautiful performances - that was United in 2006/07.

And don't forget, the season is not over yet!

yea..u guys deserve it. Congratulations. But as far as I am concerned, both deserve it, as both the teams had to go through a LOT of problems and gave it all. But at this moment, MANU deserves it.

Congratulations from a Chelsea ST holder. Injuries etc played their part but the truth is that the best team this season won the league. Enjoy your celebrations and we look forward to a cracking game between the two best sides in the country at Wembley in a fortnight. Good to see that your as gracious in victory as you re in defeat unlike certain other sides fans.

Goofle: whilst I agree that injuries (particularly Cech, Cudicini and Terry and Cole) hindered Chelsea, Man Utd were the better team from day one this season and they deserve their title.

you boys are just keeping it polished for us for next season ;-) but fair play, i think united have deserved it this season, ronaldo has had a storming season and it's good to see the title won by the team displaying attacking flair (no disrespect merlin, but ManYoo have done that more so than chelski this year...) »»Arsene Knows««

BTW, I guess we know now why West Ham weren't docked any points, would have been pretty embarrassing for you guys to lose the title because of the Tim Howard incident! Now you'll just be fined.

We won't be fined, the Premier League confirmed they had no problems with a verbal agreement. No official clause prevented Howard from playing. Had Everton decided to play him and ***** their promise, they could have done it.

I'm dissapointed that Arsenal were so off the pace, but I console myself with the fact that the evil reign has been banished for one year, at least. Still. Arsenal. Liverpool. And even Manchester United must become stronger, lest the evil vermin return to corrupt the once beautiful game.
