Chelsea’s Premiership deciding game in the seasons climax at Stamford Bridge on Sunday is a perfect example of the wonderful stories that football can so often throw up. While champions Manchester United will be desperately battling Stoke City at Old Trafford for the three points which may give them a slim chance of retaining their title, a 38 year old goalkeeper who was rejected by United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson 19 years ago will be doing his utmost to help Wigan deny Chelsea a Premiership that appears to be within its grasp.
THE colours of Newton Heath being worn by disillusioned fans at Old Trafford has been one of the enduring images of the season. As the anger towards the Glazers has increased so has the number of green and gold scarves appearing in the crowd at Manchester United matches. In a desperate attempt to appease their supporters the club has announced a freeze on season ticket prices. Yet yesterday, a far more significant announcement was made in one of the world’s most famous footballing cities.
