Manchester United are Premier League champions for an 11th time after drawing 0-0 with Arsenal at Old Trafford. The title was sealed in uninspiring style - they did not have a single shot on target!!!
After 37 Premier League matches, Manchester United have been crowned as Premier League Champion's with one match to spare. All we needed was a draw against Arsenal and that is exactly what we got. We are now alongside Liverpool with 18 League titles and looking forward to the Champion's League final on the 27th May.
Manchester United vs Arsenal
Arsenal has fought to the very end to try spoil the party, they even got one chance of hitting the bar in the last few minutes, this left us with a very nerve racking final few minutes.
In the beginning, speculation over his future, Carlos Tevez did start for Man United and Dimitar Berbatov spent this match on the bench, LOLZ.. But Barbatov will stay longer than Carlos. Just let him play for till the end of his carrier with United
United could have been 1-0 up in the first 15 seconds, Darren Fletcher put Cristiano Ronaldo through on goal but was unable to convert it into a goal. Tevez was his normal busy self throughout the match, troubling the defenders.
Arsenal's first chance fell to Robin Van Persie who mucked up his header. Arsenal might have a penalty shout in the first half when Van Persie fell in the penalty area after a challenge from Nemanja Vidic, however the referee rightly didn't give a penalty.
Second half seemed to drag on, all it needed was one goal from Arsenal and the celebrations would have to be put on hold but it didn't happen
United did have 1 or 2 chances but not so many. The 1st in the second half fell to Tevez when Fletcher put him through on goal but blocked by Arsenal goalie Lukasz Fabianski.
On 67 minutes abit controversial and emotional where Tevez was taken off by Sir Alex Ferguson for Ji-Sung Park. and Fergie was booed but Tevez was applauded by the fans ... The way Teves came out seems like it would be the last time we'd saw him with the United shirt on. Wish him goodluck with his carrier in the future
Then later Arsenal could have been 1-0 down after Ronaldo was put through on goal by Park, Ronaldo did slot the ball into the back of the net but he was harshly ruled by offside.
With only ten minutes left, Arsenal pressure up and step on the gear to get a goal and it really trigger my nerve ending up to the ends, and my heart beats faster. In the last 10 minutes Cesc Fabregas hit the post, and Van Der Sar had to save a shot from Van Persie, owh man what a save from our own favourite Manchester United Golie Edwin Van Der Sar
The game did finish 0-0 which means that Manchester United have now been crowned as this season's winners of the Barclay's Premier League for the third season in a row. I may be wrong but I am sure that, that means that we will get to keep the trophy after three consecutive Premier League title race wins.
More title joy for Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United championship number 18 - and an 11th for him personally.
Sir Alex Ferguson: "Fantastic season, great young players, will stay while his health is good, asked about 5 more years, didn't rule it out"
Yup.. Manchester United again.. strange isn't it? We didn't see any Teves shadow on the pictures above
Ronaldo: "Really happy, like a family at United, loves the club, happy with season, top scorer premier league, I'm really really happy here"
"Emotional day, fans marvellous singing Argentina, love fans, thank you, waving was maybe goodbye, very difficult to stay at United"
Strange isn't it? It just not so like Teves! Neither Ferguson (see quote below), nor United's fans, are ready to give up just yet.
"It's emotional,'' said Tevez. "I like Manchester and I like the fans. But maybe it is goodbye. It is very difficult.''
"If that was the case it is a good thing,'"We want him to stay.'The only reason I substituted him was that he was playing up front on his own and he was tired.''
Whatever the reason, in the END ~ We are the champions, no time for losers cos we are the champions OF THE WORLD !!!!!!
Right now I am going to enjoy celebrating and I hope you will too. Till we meet next match review, the Champion's League title!!!!
