United inch closer and closer to a record title

So the frustrating point gained at Newcastle proved to be a valuable one after all as title chasers Arsenal dropped another two at Tottenham tonight. Football is a game of inches and as Sir Alex Ferguson knows so well, each one gets you that much closer to the finishing line. United are now back to were they started prior to the visit to St James’ Park with the added advantage of being one game closer to the record Championship which everyone at Old Trafford craves so much.
