Earlier this week, we (man utd came up with a dream case scenario for the
end of the season that basically involved winning the double by beating Chelsea
on the final day in the league and scoring five against Liverpool in the Champions
League final - one for every of their European Cups, including a Gary Neville

But, what happened if it went the other way and our season falters right at the
final straight? It could happen and, even with odds of 1-14 to defend our Premier
League title, Fergie still insists it could go down to the wire.

You've seen the best, now prepare for the worst case scenario to the end of the
season - read on only if you're sat down comfortably...

With four games to go and five points ahead United only need two wins, including
a victory over Chelsea, to reclaim the Premier League title. But, Chelsea's failure
to beat Wigan allows complacency to set in and we draw our next game away to
a Blackburn side led by former legend Mark Hughes while Chelsea beat Everton
to close the gap to three points.

And to make matters worse, Blackburn's physical approach leaves Wayne Rooney
with his fourth broken metatarsal in as many years and he is ruled out for the
rest of the season.

So to the away game at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea haven' been beaten in
100 games. An early goal by the returning Louis Saha gives us some hope but no
sooner has he scored it but his hamstring goes again and he's forced to limp
from the field, which has a negative effect on our lone striker formation.

Chelsea come back strongly an equalise just before half time with a goal from
former United fan and one time transfer target, Michael Essien. The second half is
played at a blinding pace with United struggling to hold on to the draw that
would at least keep them in front with a couple of games to go.

But, Chelsea bring on all of their attacking players as substitutes and in the dying
moments a mistake by Rio Ferdinand allows Andriy Shevchenko, of all people, to
sneak in and score the winner from the far post. The two teams are level on
points with United still ahead on goal difference.

As Fergie predicted, it all goes down to the last game of the season. But, with the
Champions League final only a few days away, Fergie gambles by playing an
under strength squad against Wigan since our fringe players have done us proud
all season.

With Bolton already relegated they put little resistance against Chelsea and a 4-0
score at half time means their result is a foregone conclusion. Meanwhile, we are
struggling against a resilient Wigan side but manage to break the deadlock on
the 81st minute with a goal from that boy Ronaldo.

All we need to do is hold on for ten minutes. But then in the third minute of
stoppage tie (sound familiar?) Ronaldo makes a legal tackle against Emile Heskey
in the penalty area - Heskey dives and the referee awards a penalty!

Wigan fans claim it's justice since Ronaldo has made a career from diving but
Heskey scores, the game finishes a draw and Chelsea win the title courtesy of
United losing points to two old boys in Bruce and Hughes.

The players struggle to overcome the defeat and the Champions League final
between us and the old enemy Liverpool is the worst in years. The game ends
0-0 after extra time and goes to penalties.

Steven Gerrard scores Liverpool's fifth penalty in succession and, since none of
our young signings have the nerve or experience to take the decisive spot kick,
Gary Neville steps up...

You can see where this is going but I can't being myself to write it - can you
imagine a worst end to the season than this?

there simply couldnt possibly be a worse ending than being beaten by Liverpool in the Champions League Final... no matter how many times we beat them in a row in the leage we would never ever ever ever ever be able to get away from their bull talk about beatin united in Moscow.. its really worrying me.. I'd have to leave my job, and emigrate if this happened!!

As I mentioned on another thread, in 1992 we looked set to win the league but lost 3 of our last 4 games and handed the title to Leeds.

If you want to be pessimistic...

Blackburn are very difficult to beat at Ewood so could get a result against us, Chelsea could maintain their formidable home record and beat us at the Bridge, West Ham beat us for the 4th time in a row and Wigan, with confidence high after the draw at Chelsea, cause an upset at the JJB. United lose their last 4 games and end up finishing 3rd.

We somehow still manage to go through to the Champions League Final on away goals against Barca with a 1-1 draw in the Nou Camp and a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford. Unfortunately, in the final Liverpool come back from 4-0 down at half-time to draw 4-4 and win it on penalties.

How's that? :rolleyes:

God Carly did you write that, its well written but its a horror story. There definately is a chance it could end like that.

I've been saying this for some time, we need another striker! If Rooney did get injured we cannot rely on the glass man, Saha!

If the rats came back from 4-0 down and won on penalties i wouldn't turn my phone on for a week. I'd be cained by so many scousers!

The dream scenario that everybody should be focusing on is that United win the next two matches and parade the trophy at home after we beat West Ham too.

Fergie than plays a depleted team against Wigan to rest players for the CL final against Liverpool. This will also gift Brucey's with a win on the last day of the season.

Fergie wouldn't usually a particularly weak team against Wigan. He usually shows respect against the lower teams in these situations. However if we are in the UCL Final and we have bagged the premiership i guess there is a change we may see the likes of Dong and Heaton playing.

Haha funny stuff Keano but i can add one worse.

Imagine Andersons work permit was invalid and we get deducted 20 points for fielding a player all season who should be playing and miss out on the UCL.

Added to mine and that would be the wost news of my life! (so far)

I'm beginning to not like this thread........anyone else with me? :eek:
