Blackburn 1-1 Man Utd: United Are Premier League Champions

By Chris Wright

A 73rd minute Wayne Rooney penalty followed by 15-minutes’ worth of keep-ball has seen Manchester United snare the point they needed at Ewood Park this afternoon to take the 2010/11 Premier League title – the club’s 19th league win and Sir Alex’s 12th at the helm – an amazing achievement considering that they’ve apparently been the square-root of mediocre (nudge, nudge) all season.

In truth, while it may not have been a vintage year for United, they’ve still managed to bag themselves a league title and drag themselves to within one game of lifting the Champions League on ‘home’ turf – success which can hardly be written off as merely being a mix of coincidence and good fortune.

We’ll have more reaction in good time, but right now I’m off to steadily drink my way through the FA Cup final.

Thoughts on United’s title win?
