excellent post mate and I like that anecdote about how liverpool fans reacted. shows how begrudging they are that they preferred a vastly inferior football team like Chelsea win the league than us. they really are bitter and perhaps they know in their heart of hearts we will knock them off their peak. in the near future.EssexYid said:Well done to Manchester United and it's legions of fans, on yet another well deserved Premier League title success, I was at WHL today and the Spurs fans went mad as the score Wigan 0 Manchester United 1 flashed up on our giant screens, the reaction was just the same as news of a second goal for Manchester United was shown to us.
The funniest part of the day was when the scousers were fed dud information that Emile Heskey had scored for Wigan, the Liverpool fans went absolutely mad with joy, and were singing his name for ages, but were then stunned into silence as the real score was displayed on our screens.
I know that most of you lot will hate him, but I must say fair play to Stevie Gerrard today, in the first half he went to take a corner at the Paxton/Shelf side of the ground and he was roundly applauded by the Spurs fans as he ran over to take it, after the game Spurs did their end of season lap of honour, and suddenly Stevie Gerrard was right in the middle of the Spurs crowd where he was earlier applauded, signing autographs and having his picture taken etc with the Spurs fans.
I must admit, I thought it was a great gesture from him to do that he made a lot of youngsters happy, he obviously appreciated the reaction he got from the Spurs fans earlier on in the game, if only more players were like that these days, I was outside with my Two boys after the game, and many of the Spurs players wouldn't sign even One autograph, they just shot straight off surrounded by security to their cars etc.
Well done once again, and I hope you go on to clinch the Champions League in Moscow, and complete a fantastic double.
AS for keane as an Irishman I cannot defend him and am not the least bit surprised after the way he has carried on playing for ireland ie as a self important premadonna.I cannot believe trapatonni still has him as our captain. Somenoe like Giggs he could learn from in how to conduct yourself both on and off the pitch.BTW gerard i think falls into the big time charlie category too and the mere fact he kisses the Liverpool badge on his chest then puts in a transfer request sums him up. Certainly his gesture today surprised me but forgive me for being cynical its easy to do same when youve just won an end of season game.
thanks though for the congrads and for the four points you took off Chelsa this season
