We're on the final straight of the premiership season and its looking like its going to be a photo finish for the main contenders, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea!

Will the easy run in for Arsenal win it of them? Could it be 3 in a row title holders United and blistering form of Rooney help them retain it? Or will Chelsea's strength, depth and hunger for silverware propel them to the summit? Who's going to hold their nerve and take home the title?! It's too close to call imo!

Arsenal have the easiest run but tbh all 3 teams are bottling it. Id Say, Chelsea to win it, Arsenal Second. United 3rd.

And im an Arsenal fan. But we shoulda bought in the Jan window.

Its so finely balanced its unreal! Id say United are the in form team at the moment but have a nightmare fixture coming up. Chesea are still favorites but dont look hugely convincing at the mo, Arsenal have a dream run in but still look vunerable!! I'm gonna go for United, Chelsea then Arsenal but I'm never right!!

Off topic, how do you fare your chances with 4 place? Man City are still dropping points and Spurs need to play all of the top 3!!

atm not well tbh, losing to wigan was a huge blow for our 4th ambitions, city dropping points however has reduced the damage and were lucky they did, we need to start performing the way we can or were ******ed and will struggle for 6th

Chelsea have looked etchy but were better against west ham, rooneys on fire and can't stop scoring, but man united have been scraping results at times. Although arsenal have the easiest games I think their defense is way too poor to have a chance, the only reason theyre even in it is because man united and chelsea had blips which look to be over. I think the form of the teams in the next few weeks will determine what will happen. The chelsea vs Man United match could be huge ! Man u v Chelsea I think, arsenal - No chance

Think Arsenal to to be honest but depends on who wins ChelseaVManUtd match. If its a draw Arsenal will have it, if not then whoever wins that will win the league.

Arsenal for the sole reason that their last games are pips - say theyd finish on 84points - second will be Manu then chelski

United all they way. With rooney in top form and giggsy and hargreaves on their way back we will be unstoppable.

Cmon the reds

You can pretty much count the last day out. You wouldn't expect any of them to drop points from the last game. But you never know with this league

Manchester united will Lose - Man city, Liverpool & draw Chelsea

Arsenal will lose 3 points against Man city

Chelsea will lose to Liverpool & draw againts Man United & Villa

between Arsenal & Chelsea, hope its Arsenal still near top of the table and still managed to score lots of goals without there top striker RVP, could Man-united have done as well without Rooney, dont think so really

I don't see how we're bottling it. Since we lost to Chelsea and United at the end of Jan/ start of Feb, we've won every single league game, including very difficult games against Liverpool and Stoke and Hull away. We've gone from being out of the title race twice this season and both times come back so to me I don't think we've bottled it. Also who could we have bought in the January transfer window? It's very difficult to sign any top players in the January transfer window as they don't want to leave their clubs midseason, and the addition of Sol Campbell at the time looked very strange but he has come in and done an excellent job in Gallas' absence.

Not to mention we've been missing Van Persie almost the whole season and as someone pointed out would United have done as well without Rooney or Chelsea without Drogba? I doubt it. All it would take is an injury to either of these players and their teams will crumble. I think Arsenal have a great chance of the title but at the moment I would say there's nothing between the 3 teams, that is until Liverpool beat United as usual at the weekend, Torres vs Vidic ;-)
#20
Utd have 4 tough games
Chelsea have 3
Arsenal have 1 possibly 2

I would like to see Arsenal win it to repay their commitment to football, you cannot rule out Utd though especially with Rooney in his current form. Really tough to call tbh. History tells you that Utd rarely are this close to the top and don't win as they seem to have a very strong mentality at the very end of the season, something the other 2 do not have.

It really is too close to predict. They all have failry easy games for the last 2 matches,apart from Liverpool v Chelsea although I think Liverpool's season will have ended by then, so we could see a last match fight for the title.

Utd's games against Liverpool and Chelsea will decide the title imo.

Here we go again, First they say United won't win anything now Ronaldo's gone, Now we wouldn't win anything with out Wayne Rooney., I think United have players that step up to the occasion when needed, If not Fergie would of bought a Rooney or a Ronaldo type player. True Rooney is in the form of his life right now, Not many players in the world at the moment come close, He's a special player with undeniable quality, Which he's proved time and time again.

Do I think United can win the league? Yes
Do I think Chelsea will drop points? Yes
Do I think Arsenal will drop points? Yes, A certainty.

If United beat (H) Liverpool, (A) Man City and of coarse (H) Chelsea then I believe we'll win the league.

Have you watched liverpool lately :oops:

Having said that we do seem to play better against the big teams.

Very hard to call the title and i'd like to see Arsenal do it rather than Chelski or united but i'm just not sure they can pull it off.

I know they've got a tough run in but to win the premiership you have to beat the best and i just think the way Rooney's on fire at the mo that unfortunately united will do it.

Ronaldo was never an all-round good football player, let alone the best in the world, the statement is thrown around these day.

Yes he was and is the best free-kick taker in the world, but that does not make him best player, plus its clear MOST of the goals he scored were from freekicks, MOST of which he dived for, or went down with little pressure on him, because he knew he was in an area he would be confident taking free kicks from.

Rooney at CURRENT is most likely in the top 10 Strikers, but again not top 10 players.

Freekicks you can learn given the time, what Zidane did you cant learn

clearly big money has been a factor is Fergie success:
Rio Ferdinand - £29.1 million (in 2002 btw)
Antonio Valencia - £20 million
Wayne Rooney - £25.6 million
Dimitar Berbatov - £30.1 million
Anderson - £27 million
Nani - £17.3 million
Hargreaves - £17 million

Arsene wengers current most exspensive player
Andrei Arshavin - £17 million

Haha biggest load of old tosh I have heard in a while. Rooney not in the top 10 players in the world? He's number one mate.

[COLOR="Red"]You're chatting rubbish and have no knowledge about football.

You're saying Ronaldo is not a good all round footballer even though he's scored goals for fun for the last 3 years? That's like saying Van Der Sar and Cech are rubbish goalkeepers because they don't chip in with enough goals.

Most of the goals Ronaldo scored we not from free kicks, and most of the free kicks he won he did not dive. He did dive occasionally, but no where near as often as people think.

And how the hell can you say Rooney is not one of the top 10 players in the world? He and Messi are by far the best 2 players in the world right now, a tier above everyone else.

Also Valencia didn't cost £20M and Anderson didn't cost £27M.

It's not Ferguson's fault Wenger has refused to spend money. Wenger has a hell of a load of money to spend but for some reason refuses to. Wenger prefers to buy 16 year olds and develop them rather than buy the finished article, a tactic which has worked very well over the last 5 years...............oh wait...........[/COLOR]

I don't know if you're some sort of troll or deliberately stupid but that is a load of rubbish. Fergie has spent and look at United's level of debt. Wenger is actually reducing our debt and within a few years almost all our profit will be able to be used for reinvestment, meaning whoever takes over after Wenger will inherit a huge club with a nice stadium and next to no debt. Wenger does develop young players but he spends the available money wisely. We can't afford to go round splashing £30m on players like Berbatov or around £17m on players like Valencia. And I'm pretty sure you don't know but Ferguson has now adopted a similar policy after signing Berbatov, meaning he won't spend big money on relatively old players anymore. And it's funny how you can laugh at Arsenal when in reality United look very average if you take Rooney out, all it takes is one injury and United will fall apart.

I'd like Arsenal to win (As i am a gunners fan!).. but I doubt its happening with the random injuries just coming out!

Seriously why didn't he buy!

I hope Chamakh comes to the gunners for the next season.

[COLOR="Red"]The debt at Man United is nothing to do with Fergie's spending. If you think Fergie is the reason Man United are in debt you know nothing about football nor finance. Man United also made a profit last year of around £26M if I remember correctly.

Last year people said Man United are only good because of Ronaldo. This year they're only good because of Rooney. Before than they were only good because of Cantona and Keane etc. One player does not make a team. United have won games without Rooney this season, just like they won games without Ronaldo last season.

And how do you know Fergie has adopted a new transfer policy? Have you spoken to him about it? As far as I'm aware he has a fair bit of money to spend should a big name player become available for a price which represents "good market value".

You can **** off United all you want but the fact is you haven't won anything for 5 years. [/COLOR]

I know exactly where United's debt has come from (the owners), but the fact is that United are indeed in huge debt and my point was that unlike Wenger, Ferguson hadn't been doing anything about it, which I don't think would've served United well in the long well at all. And I'm sure it was pretty much confirmed that Ferguson changed United's transfer policy which is why we've seen United bring in players like Obertan, Diouf and Valencia rather than splashing out on someone like Villa although I could be wrong. However I'm fairly confident that Ferguson has changed the policy and for United's future it is probably the right thing to do.

As for us not winning anything for 5 years that is a fair point, but it's no coincidence it's happened since we've moved into our new stadium and the board and Wenger have been trying to manage the debt. I don't think you can say you see no potential at all in Arsenal. Also in these 5 years, we've reached the FA Cup semi final, Carling cup final and semis (not that this really matters), Champions League final and semi final and finished 4 points off the title after leading for most of the season. It's fine lines and we've been quite unfortunate in some regards but I wouldn't jump on the pundit's bandwagons and believe that Arsenal are awful because we were tipped to finish 5th by most before the season.

Also I think United have become overreliant on Rooney to quite an extent now, and previously the same could've been said about Ronaldo. But if we were to take Rooney out of United's current side who do you honestly think could step up? I saw United against Wolves the other week with no Rooney and they were not impressive at all.
