Yesterday was probably the greatest finish to a season in the Premier League era.
Two teams fighting to avoid relegation, while at the opposite end we had two teams going for the title. Having witnessed an unbelievable game of lows and highs at The Etihad, it must be said that Manchester City have won the title on merit.
Of course, there will be the usual talk about 'buying' the title and people won't stop pointing at the huge bill they've ran up in doing so. And of course, don't forget the regular jibes about 'history'. Having been subjected to the same treatment over the past few years, I'll just say this to the City fans - 'Get a thick skin and enjoy your win'. And be ready for an influx of johnny-come-lately's hopping onto the bandwagon.
As a Chelsea supporter it felt a bit strange not be involved in the thick of the action at this time of year, but then, we gave up the ghost a long time ago. This time next season, however, you can be sure we'll be having a right go at it. And knowing that there's another worthy opponent only makes it more challenging for us and for everyone else. That can only be good for the English game as a whole.
In the end, I'd like to congratulate Manchester City for their title success. Your long-suffering supporters deserve every bit of it.
See you next season.
