With a Chelsea loss and a United win we have Chelsea with 77 points and United with 76 points.  Now United has a chance–they are close and they need to keep closing.  United has a chance to get closer with a slightly easier schedule than normal coming up–with the exception of Tottenham.

Chelsea In Crisis Mode

United go back on top as Chelsea slip again

Chelsea’s terrible week continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Blackburn and drop to 4 points behind Manchester United, although Chelsea have a game in hand.

Chelsea’s Ready For Mourinho

This matchup could be epic… John Terry thinks that Chelsea can put a sock in the 1-goal deficit that Chelsea is in with Inter in the Champion’s League.  However, I think he’s also still a little hot over Mourinho leaving Chelsea high and dry after they did everything in the book together. ”Returning to Stamford [...]

Drogba Named Africa’s Best Player

Didier Drogba was last night named Africa’s finest player for the year 2009 in a lavish gala award ceremony in Accra, Ghana. This ends his long wait to be recognised as one of the continents great’s.
