So Manchester United has done it again.
After City’s defeat at White Hart Lane a day earlier, United’s victory at home – thanks to a first half hattrick from Van Persie – secured the English top flight title yet again, and in what style. It was a pity the trophy wasnt presented but that can wait to be savoured.
20 is my favourite number. This has made it an even better favourite. Thank you United. Thank you, Sir Alex Ferguson!
