It`s interesting to note that in the newspapers, this morning, Sir Alex Ferguson chose to indicate that it`ll be the same old three sides (Arsenal, Chelsea and United) closing in on the title.

But, before all those from across the city get out of their high-chairs and prams, perhaps we should redress the balance and point out that he hasn`t ruled out the challenge of the new kids on the financial block.

However, you get the impression that Sir Alex doesn`t consider them to be a major threat to our own title ambitions when he`s quoted a shaving remarked,

“They have not had the strongest start but, with their squad, you have to think they will be there.”

“I saw the 3-0 win over Liverpool and they`re going to be a big challenge – the power they have with their big lads.”

“Roberto Mancini bought half a team this summer and it`s not easy to bed them down. But if you get continuity they will be a threat.”


Perhaps in the eyes of Sir Alex, City are viewed as a side chasing a Champions League place rather than the title!

I`ll sit back and await any barbed replies from the City contingent!
