Manager of the year

Alex Ferguson, the manager of Machester United, has just been made manager of the season in the Premier League after leading the Reds to their 17th Premier League title with a 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic, thus leaving Chelsea trailing with a useless tie.

Manchester United will have the chance to keep Chelsea trailing yet again at the Champions League Final in Moscow, possibly cementing an extraordinary season for Manchester United, not seen since the legendary 1998-1999 season (but this team, in my opinion is better than the team from back then).

But be sure that Chelsea will fight: they will undoubtfully not want this season to be remembered as the season where they were nothing but runner-ups to Manchester United. Everyone remembers the winners; nobody remembers the runners-up.

But my warmest congratulations to Alex Ferguson, whom I still consider to be one of the greatest coaches of all time.
