Two fingered salute to those who wrote United off this season..

IT was interesting to read yesterday that Alan Hansen wrote United off again at the beginning of the current season - writing them off is perhaps a bit strong, because the BBC pundit actually predicted that Chelsea would win the title. Hansen wasn't on his own there, many in the media backed Chelsea to win the title for the third time on the bounce. I have to admit that I too honestly couldn't see United lasting the distance, oh ye of little faith. Such has been Chelsea's amazing consistency since Mourinho took over.

The key to United's title success was retaining Ronaldo, he could quite easily have walked away last summer. But once again Fergie pulled out the stops to keep the player at the club, just as he did with Eric Cantona a few seasons back. The Portuguese winger has been nothing short of sensational and his double PFA and Football Writers awards are richly deserved - long may it continue...

One big name former Chelsea player predicted that United would win the title race ahead of his former club, he also predicted that it would be a Milan v Liverpool Champions League final, yes none other than the man of style Gian Luca Vialli got it all right. You do wonder who Vialli is tipping to win the FA Cup Final?

To those who thought Chelsea would win the title we salute you - with two fingers.
