Ronaldo - Stay or Go?

Will Cristiano Ronaldo stay, or will he depart United is the question on most of Red Devil`s fans?

Why on earth anyone would want to leave the Premiership to play abroad is beyond me. What do they have that we don`t? The English league is followed around the world. It`s the most attractive, hard fought, and entertaining.

I suppose it all comes down to the money, and clubs like Real Madrid have this idea they can snap their fingers and players will come running to join them.

Hopefully Ronaldo will stay loyal to United and stick around for a few years to come before joining any team abroad. He says he`ll make his decision in the next three weeks. Let`s hope it`s the right one.

United - Champions League Victors


What a match, Drogba got red carded, Ronaldo missed a penalty in the shoot-out, so did John Terry and Annelka.

One of the best finals ever, with Manchester United going through after a thrilling match which saw missed chances on both sides, but with the Reds holding their nerve to win the coveted trophy.

United Retain Title

Record-holder Ryan Giggs marked a lifetime's loyalty with the best present possible as he delivered another Premier League title to Manchester United.

United were in front but needing calming despite Cristiano Ronaldo's first-half penalty when Giggs kept his nerve to coolly slot home Wayne Rooney's through ball.

A quarter of an hour earlier, Giggs' had been introduced for his 758th United appearance, equalling a milestone left by Sir Bobby Charlton that will surely be eclipsed in Moscow on May 21.

But all Giggs will care about is adding to a medal collection that continues to expand, containing all 10 championships won under Sir Alex Ferguson, part of an overall United haul of 17, one adrift of Liverpool, who Ferguson has vowed to overtake.

Chelsea only managed a draw (1-1) against Bolton, so United finsh 2 points clear at the top.

United Sees Off West Ham

Man Utd 4-1 West Ham

Man Utd stand one win away from the Premier League title after thrashing West Ham at Old Trafford.

Two goals from Ronaldo, one from Tevez, and one from Carrick sends United three points clear of Chelsea, with Chelsea having their game on Monday.

One more win from United in the last domestic game of the season sees United crowned Champions. Realistically, though, if Chelsea lose against Newcastle United on Monday the title will go to United before the final matches.
