20th Times

Manchester United look set to land their 20th league title with possible one of Sir Alex weakest teams, but how has he done it? Luck? or Experience? Or did Man City just mess it up so badly that United had to win it? Of course its not over yet but I don't see a United side losing a lead like this especially when they start to sniff a title there very hard to stop. In a crazy season for rivals City I think the major moment for the reds was when Man City came to Old Trafford and simple murdered United 6-1. United had beaten Chelsea and Arsenal already at this point but this blow sent shock waves around the Premier League and around the world. United's European form and cup form has been poor by their standards and that is down to a weak squad and some weak performances at home. Plus with back to back defeats to Blackburn and Newcastle saw Sir Alex call upon a old great. Paul Scholes returned in January and I think bringing him back could have saved United. Of course they have great players already but his calming influence I feel allowed others to progress and play in correct positions. United have showed the relentless power when it comes down to it they ground out those results and now with everyone fully fit they can get goals from anywhere. They did have a major injury crisis early season but every team does so that's no real excuse. Now on a run of 7 league wins on the spin United could even wrap up the title before their trip to 'the council house' as many reds call it. If they do I think it shows Manchester United even with a far weaker squad then Manchester City and even Tottenham they can still do the bizz, and no matter how much money you spend, trying to take a title away from them will take a lot more than just that.
