They think it's all over.....

One of the most famous brands in international football is Manchester United FC, who make a habit of winning things. So I could hardly fail to comment on the delightful fact that their local rivals, Manchester City FC, have just become Premier League champions.

Good news: this is the first time for 44 years that MCFC have been champions of the top English division.

Better news: the title was decided on the last day of the competition, in the last match, in extra time, when City came from 2-1 down to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2 with two goals in two minutes.

Best news, the team who must have been thinking they had won the title by winning their own match when City were 2-1 down was Manchester United.

A friend of mine (Sue Barnard) who lives in Manchester took this picture of the victory parade, which was going on outside the Central Library where she was at an evening class.
