Manchester United Win Arsenal's League Title
In a dramatic last-day twist, Manchester United captured Arsenal's Premiership title. Arsene Wenger's team, proclaimed Premiership champions by the Southern media as early as November, bravely finished 3rd, despite the death of Brazilian striker Eduardo, who is Croatian.
"Arsenal are the best footballing side in the world," said SkySports analyst Andy Gray. "It's a cruel world that values scoring goals and winning games above the aesthetic value of passing a ball around in midfield."
United's title is their 10th under Sir Alex Ferguson. "Congratulations to Sir Alex," Arsene Wenger sportingly offered. "Technically, I suppose, they are champions."
