Simply put - the champions should, for the sake of the sport, the team who wins the most games and scores the most goals, not the team who loses the least....

I think whoever lifts the title on Sunday will have the edge over the other team and go on to lift the Champions League. I really hope it's United's goal difference that settles the title and shows Chelsea that you have to score goals to win trophies. But fair play to Chelsea they have battled well but they do not posses the strength to finish up as champions.

I think that Manchester United deserve to win the title as they have been the best team over the whole season. They have the best defence and attack and in Ronaldo, they have the player of the season. As for Avram's comments on a play-off for the league, well the league is a season of 38 games and United happen to have scored more goals and concided less then Chelsea, is it Utd's fault that his players took their foot of the peddle against the weaker sides and his defence had lapses in concentration. NO!!. Also if he wants to use other leagues ways of deciding the title then why not Spains where it's sorted out by head to head. I'll tell you why? because Utd won 2-0 at home but lost 2-1 away so Chelsea would lose again, on the basis of the overall score being 3-2 in Utd's favour.

It's simple, United are winning the League. I don't say this to put Wigan down, as I think they will come out and make it difficult for us, but in these sorts of situations is when I think United turn the quality and gutso up. I think Chelsea will also win Bolton, so we'll win this due to superior goal difference...something I think neutrals have enjoyed watching this season. Hopefully, ole Stevie Coppell's lot; Reading, will stay up too. We don't need any favours from Ste Bruce, it'll all to come from the United Team. Roll on May 21st May and we can settle the Chelsea v Manu debate too...the penalty in the last few minutes was a disgrace.

I am a very fair man when it comes to football, as a man utd fan i really feel this season they do deserve to win the title, sure they have had a couple of bad performances but apart from that there football has been exciting and a joy to watch, where as chelsea have been so boring this year, hence when chelsea fans booed the chelsea players at wigan for there boring efforts man utd on there bestday can beat anyone so its up to them to win the title. i have every confdence in man utd and hope they win the title

Neil Vaughan (Liverpool fan) says...

At the top, both teams will win. United because they are a good side, Chelsea because they will bore their opposition into submission. But United win the title. Despite being a Liverpool fan, I have to say that they deserve it. Chelsea's brand of football is just dreadful and it would be terrible if a boring team like that won the title. It would be as undeserved as if we won the title with Gerard Houllier. His style of football was terrible too.

Good luck to United on Sunday, they have been the best team in the league by a mile. Terry wants Wigan to do justice to the league and in some respects I agree, as I don't like certain teams who turn up against one side and not against others. However, that also means that Bolton need to do justice to the league and beat Chelsea the way they beat United and make sure the team most deserving win it. As for relegation, Birmingham are down and I'd like to see Reading stay up ahead of Fulham because Coppell's a great manager and Fulham have only decided to start playing in the last month. COME ON UNITED!

What a fantastic day sunday is going to be for english football!!Theres no question that United deserve to win the title for the way they've played all season. Fair play to Grant for the job he's come in and done under all the pressure but United are the best team in Europe at the moment and will dig deep to overcome a resiliant Wigan Side. Don't rule out a late Bolton equiliser at Stamford Bridge either!!What a season and what a day Sunday will be!!!

Shaun Haggarty (Portsmouth fan) says...

It will be the usual "knuckle-chewing" situation with all the ups & downs through-out the day. Wigan are in good form and Steve Bruce will have mixed emotions I guess; I'm sure he'd love to get one over Fergie - but at the expense of denying Utd the title? I still think Utd will edge it - probably 2-1 as the do know how to "finish the job" and surely have too much talent and professionalism to blow it now. Chelsea will beat Bolton....but don't be surprised to see them get revenge in the Champions League final; it's all set-up perfectly for Abramovich to celebrate! As for the other end of the table I think the Birmingham/Blackburn game is difficult to call; but in front of their own fans I think Brum can edge it 2-1 ...but I don't think it'll be enough as I think Reading will sneak a 1-0 win at Derby (I'd love to see them stay up if only for Steve Coppell's sake; one of the few decent, honest men left in football). As for my own team, Portsmouth; they are over-due a win and I think Harry will want to go into the FA Cup final with a win and a good performance under his belt. Also they love to say a big "thank you" to the fantastic fans at Fratton Park. Jermaine will want to go out on a high and I can see him having a good day, maybe 2-0 to the blues. (It will be a shame for Roy Hodgson - another "good guy" and a good manager). Besides Pompey could still nick 6th spot and a UEFA Cup slot - just in case disaster strikes in the Cup Final (which it won't!) - if my prediction of Brum edging out Rovers comes true and West Ham bt Villa (last game of the season, at home, due a performance...could happen!!!). So in a nutshell; B'rum and Fulham down, Utd to win Premiership! Oh and Chelsea Champions League, Zenit St Petersburg UEFA Cup......and fingers crossed that Rangers also slip up (against Dundee Utd??!!) to allow Celtic to pinch title!!

I am oh so nervous about United getting a result at Wigan on Sunday. I know Chelsea will win thats my problem. I cant see United winning but maybe getting a draw. The form guide suggests this to be the case as well. Oh well, we will see. I hope am wrong as United have deserved it this season.

I said on this site when Alex Mcleish took over at Birmingham that he would take them down. He has made a career of taking teams back the way and with Scotland he was handed Walter Smith's team who he happily took the credit for but i now notice that the current Birnmingham team is suddenly Steve Bruce's, sorry Birmingham fans he is taking you down !!

Josh Middleton (Manchester United fan) says...

United derserve to win the league, chelsea are always scraping wins and goals, united are more exciting to watch and if we didn't have such a poor start to the season, this title race would be over. chelsea have done well to come back into it, but overall the trophy deserves to stay at Old Trafford.

Mark S (Manchester United fan) says...

As a Man Utd fan I'm obviously going to say title is coming our way, I don't believe a second placed team with the chance of winning the title on the final day has won it (please correct me if i;m wrong). More to the point its ours to lose and I can't see Fergie saying have a stroll out and you'll win it. The relegation battle is the more interesting one. I believe Birmingham are going down, and i believe they will be joined by Reading, with my reasoning being Fulham are clicking, and more to the point what the Reading players are saying. Coppell must be fuming, when have you ever heard him talk like that, that complacency might set in among the players. i would like to add one more point, i am fed up with the antics or subtle jibes aimed at managers regarding their performance on the last day of the season. Many say that Bruce may hand title cos of his United connections. RUBBISH! Portsmouth may field a weakened team which impacts the relegation battle. SO WHAT! Warnock took a dig at United last season because it was between Sheff Utd and West Ham as to who would go down. As far as I'm concerned it is the teams poor performances that have put them in a relegation position, if Portsmouth want to field a weakened team so they're fresh for the final next week then let them, they come first, they played well through the season, they're safe they earned it. Bolton and Wigan are safe, if they don't put up a fight let them, they're safe. And it works the other way round, if Wigan beat United, Utd are to blame, they should have wrapped it up sooner. Be accountable, don't pass the buck and say another team caused you to lose the title or be relegated.

Stig Nielsen (Newcastle United fan) says...

I'd love to see Man Utd do the double and Ronaldo getting a goal or two more before this very interesting season ends, but Wigan have been good of late and it sure as the sun does shine won't be easy for them mancs to get that win they're after. Wigan will probably be camping their half hoping to cause enough of a nervous feeling in the United camp. Fulham of late haven't looked all that bad and I feel they have had some really bad luck this season. Newcastle at Craven Cottage was an interesting game that I fully felt Fulham were more deserved of the three points after the effort they put in. But Portsmouth might prove too big a mouthful so here's to hoping that Derby can prove that one should never give up in adversity!

Archie Crawford (Manchester United fan) says...

It looks doubtful that Rooney will play on Sunday which is certainly a blow for Man United. Its a known fact that united win a higher % matches when Rooney plays. I just hope they can deal with the pitch at Wigan and grind out a victory if needed. My prediction is for the game to locked at 1-1 with a late goal from Ronaldo to seal the title. That would be a fitting end to the season.
