Unbriddled Joy

it could be OURS!!!!! again... :)

This morning I woke up to one of the best news I have heard, Chelsea 1 Wigan 1! It could not have come at a more crucial time. This means Manchester United is 5 points ahead with 4 games to go and they could probably wrap up the title even before they set foot at Stamford Bridge in under a fortnight's time!

Emile Heskey may have given joy to many United fans last night and it will be interesting to see Avram Grant's solemn face.. after so confidently declaring Chelsea will put Manchester United under pressure... instead the pressure got to him.

This weekend both contenders travel. Chelsea to Goodison Park, whose Everton side who looked promising enough for fourth spot faded now 5 points behind 4th spot Champions to be... Liverpool. While Manchester United face a tricky visit to Ewood Park where former United great Mark Hughes would want to make up for their 3-1 defeat at Anfield last week.

Meanwhile if results keep panning out the way it is... Arsenal may yet find themselves finishing as runners-up and gaining the spot in Champions League next season without having to go through qualification. For that they need a huge dose of assistance from Everton and Manchester United and decent performances from themselves in the last 4 matches.

I say, Lets wrap up the title this weekend.... I shall be a supporter of the blue half of Merseyside for one weekend....
