United riding high on top of a wonderful world...

Manchester United fans have every right to be feeling rather smug with themselves with the club riding high at the top of the world game following their win over Liga de Quito over the weekend in Japan.

As if that wasn't enough, the "champions elect" (according to the BBC's many scouse supporting correspondents) Liverpool, were once again held to a draw at the weekend this time by Arsenal. If it wasn't for the Gunners' Keystone Cops' like defending they could have taken all three points, but instead they allowed the Scouse pretenders back into the game which eventually finished up 1-1. In the end a draw was a fair result and one that all but ended the Gunners' lingering title hopes.

However, the festive fun didn't end at the Emirates on Sunday as our, gone but not forgotten, old friends Leeds United, sacked their manager Gary McAllister.

SKY sports helped to make it a really Super Sunday when Manchester city deservedly lost to bottom of the table West Brom. I could be wrong here, but it looks to me that the City players' are trying to get Mark Hughes sacked, failure to win at Eewood Park next weekend will I fear mark the end for Sparky.

Then on Monday night at Goodison Park John Terry was red carded against Everton and once again the Renters' could only manage a draw. Chelsea and Liverpool should by rights have left United for dead by now, given the Champions haven't been at their very best all season long, but our rivals continue to leave the door open for the Reds'.

Meanwhile in Europe, the fast becoming joke that is Real Madrid continue to be linked with second-tier stars from the Premier League - oh how the once mighty have fallen. I will actually be quite pleased to see Liverpool knock them out of the Champions League this season.

As Satchmo himself used to sing "oh what a wonderful world"...
