This football thing is so cruel. Every time I manage to convince myself to give up on hoping for an unprecedented and unexpected fourth league title, United come out with a brilliant display and Chelsea drop points.

I watched them in action at Hull, dejectedly hoping for a convincing win. What I got instead was a showing as bad as any of our disasters this season (Leeds, Fulham, Besiktas, you name it). And there’s a Chelsea v Arsenal round the corner, with only two points separating us and Chelsea…

You know, I’ve already figured out how this sick thing called fate will screw us again. We’ll be going into this weekend with great hopes, dizzy with anticipation – and then we’ll crush to Portsmouth at home in the biggest shock of the league season then Chelsea will steamroller Arsenal 5-0.

Otherwise, we might, just might, have a title race here.
