Last season was one of the tightest finishes to a Premier League season fro many a year.

Right until the final weekend of the season the title, mathematically, was still up for grabs and in the weeks that preceded that final weekend there was the possibility that three teams would be fighting it out.

As it turned out we were beaten by a Chelsea side that took maximum points off of us both at Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford.

For the neutral fan it was a thrilling climax, personally I prefer seasons when we romp home and it`s all done and dusted by mid-April.

Last season also saw the emergence of a couple of sides that broke up the monopoly Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and ourselves had on the Champions League places. Spurs snatched fourth place whilst Liverpool slipped down the table to be overtaken by Manchester City and Aston Villa.

Now whether that`s because the top teams have dropped their standards or the others have upped there game is a question we could debate all night long. Instead we`ll let Ryan Giggs have his say on how he thinks next season may well pan out,

“I think the league is going to be very competitive again.”

“Teams have got a little bit closer together – those that were on the fringe of things have got better and caught up.”

“Manchester City obviously have a lot of money to spend, Spurs did well last season – as did Aston Villa.”

“So it will be interesting to see who is in the top four at the end of the season.”

“My main aim is to win the title back. United are always there or thereabouts. But winning it is the important thing and we want it back.”

We most certainly do, after only winning the Carling Cup (although what would Manchester City give to win any cup?) we`re looking towards a return of the old United way of monopolising trophies!
