**I jus had to post this before all of my posts in my drafts. Haha. Witness the story about glory!!**




I’ve paid my dues –
Time after time –
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime –
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face –
But I’ve come through

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting – till the end –
We are the champions –
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions – of the world –

I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls –
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it

I thank you all –

But it’s been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise –
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race –
And I ain’t gonna lose –

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting – till the end –
We are the champions –
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions – of the world –

 its the lyrics from the song “we are the champions” sang by “queen”


Why is this song important now? coz MANCHESTER UNITED have been crowned champions for the 10th time in the premier league. The premier league was formed in 1992 till now. So that would mean that manchester have won 10 out of 16 seasons. To all the losers out there, try again next season mwahahhaha. This season has been a tough one. Everyone thought manchester were out of the race for the title when they were losing and drawing their first 3 matches. Which means manchester had gained 2 points out of a possible 9. whereas other teams like arsenal, chelsea and liverpool gained maximum points. But that didnt stop manchester.


Between the early part of the season and going into the middle part of the season, Chelsea were the first to bite the dust in the race for the title. With the sacking of their great manager (the owner of Chelsea doesnt like the manager), Chelsea kept losing and drawing critical matches whcih allowed manchester to claw their way back to the top 3.


Liverpool were next in line. Inconsistency in the league had caused liverpool to lose precious points while manchester united and arsenal kept on winning and winning which eventually resulted in them not being able to catch up with the 2 top teams, Arsenal and Manchester United.


So it was down to 2 teams, Arsenal and Manchester United with arsenal having the advantage as they have 3 points more than manchester united and it was this crucial time in the middle of the season when manchester began to fight back. manchester kept piling the pressure on arsenal and eventually it paid off. Arsenal slipped up and manchester caught up an reducing the points to 1 point deficit. Arsenal’s slim lead were then cut off when they drew and caused manchester to take the lead by 1 point with yet another win. (ahh how the tables have turned)


But celebrations didnt last long as manchester lost the next  game and drew the other 2 games which gifted arsenal a beautiful 5 point lead. By now it was approaching the 3/5 part of the season and everyone thought its game over for manchester united. Arsenal fans were taunting all over the world. “boo manchester united!!” “mwahahaha try again next season” “har lose again ar??” By now every manchester united fans were feeling down and under. Everyone said its over. But deep down manchester united fans believed and then a miracle came.


It was during the FA cup 6th round and guess who was manchester united’s foe? Arsenal. Manchester United hammered Arsenal 4-0. If it was a 1-0 or 2-0 or 2-1 win ok lo, but le it had to be a 4-0 beating of Arsenal and god it couldnt be any sweeter. Manchester united knocked out arsenal and were on course for the fa cup and uefa champions league double. But the miracle part didnt stop here. In fact it started here.


Right after losing to manchester united by 4 goals to nil. (mwahahaha look whos laughing now???) arsenal’s season went straight down like the bursa saham DBKL. Firstly arsenal started drawing their matches in the premier league while manchester won and won and won. So from losing by 5 points, manchester were now leading by 5 points instead. With 6 games to go, and a 5 point lead there was little that arsenal could do. Arsenal had but only 1 mission which was to win manchester united at their next game to cut the lead to 2. However things went united’s way. manchester united fought back from being a goal down (arsenal’s goal was a handball btw) to score 2 crucial goals and completely destroyed arsenal’s hope in being crowned champions of england.


Just to rub salt to arsenal’s wounds they were beaten by liverpool to advance the semi finals of the UEFA champions league (losers….. dont win hahahaha) which meant that arsenal have achieved yet another trophyless season. 3rd one in a row. Means they havent won a trophy in 3 years in a row.


Approaching the ending of the season, with 5 games to go, manchester had the chance to win the title a long time ago but then its united’s turn to feel the pressure and suffered a horrible month. Firstly manchester had lost in the quarter finals to portsmouth. then they had to draw their next 2 games in the premier league which allowed their closest competitor to catch up. And nope its not arsenal but….. CHELSEA. Yeapz chelsea fought back from the dead to get within manchester united with 7 points. The lead was then cut to 3 points with 3 games to go.


3 games to go, if united can win the remaining 3 games, they will be crowned champions again and have successfully defend their title. However their next opponent was chelsea and they were not gonna let this opportunity go. It was Chelsea vs Manchester United. Everyone was watching this match. Both the teams have reached the semi finals of the UEFA champions league (Europe’s most prestigious trophy) and both were lookin forward to their UEFA champions league game in the week. It was to no surprise that manchester united fielded a weaker side while chelsea sent their strongest squad. And in the end it was manchester united 1 – chelsea 2. Chelsea have tied with manchester united on points but not on goal difference. Apparently United scored more goals and conceded less goals than chelsea. With a remarkable goal difference of 50++ and chelsea’s with a goal difference of 30++, if both manchester united and chelsea remain tied on points at the last game of the season, united would still win the title due to their goal difference.


For the last 2 games, both united and chelsea fans are hoping that their competitor’s side would draw or lose. but it wasnt to be and during the last 2 games, united have won 4-1 and 2-0. whereas chelsea won 2-0 and drew 1-1. It was united’s 10th trophy. and all is well….. or so we thought…


Turns out both manchester and chelsea have made it through to the final of the UEFA champions league. It will be held at moscow and u can catch it live at 22nd may 2.30am ESPN. Will it be united who wins the double or will chelsea create history by winning it for the first time? time will tell.
