    Now Recap of how we won courtesy of manu.com.

    How it was won - Part 1

    ManUtd.com takes a look back at the pivotal moments in the 2006/07 title race as United claim Championship glory...

    - Start as we mean to go on
    United lay down a marker to the rest of the country by knocking five past Fulham in a thrilling attacking display in their first game of the season at Old Trafford.

    - Blues slip up almost immediately
    A set of midweek fixtures follows hot on the heels of the opening weekend, and Wednesday 23 August turns out to be a good night for the Reds as United win at Charlton and Chelsea lose at Middlesbrough.

    - Gunners upset the applecart
    Four straight victories keep United on top of the league until Sunday 17 September, when a defeat at home to old foes Arsenal allows Portsmouth to leapfrog us in the table. At least we're still ahead of Chelsea *only just *on goal difference.

    - But not for long
    Another wobble in the league as United draw away at newly-promoted Reading. A win over Fulham in the west London derby lifts Chelsea two points clear at the top of the Premiership. Incredibly, it turns out to be the only time Chelsea will end the weekend on top of the league and the last time United don't.

    - Normal service is resumed
    The champions stumble once again at home to Aston Villa on Saturday 30 September, drawing 1-1. United take full advantage, seeing off Newcastle with two goals from the evergreen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    - A bad week for the Blues
    All three points are accrued by Chelsea away at Reading on 14 October, but at some cost. Petr Cech suffers a fractured skull that was to rule out the influential stopper for three months. United still ahead on goal difference.

    - United step up a gear
    A dramatic 2-0 win over Liverpool is followed by a 4-0 victory away at Bolton, featuring a glorious Wayne Rooney hat-trick, and an easy 3-0 win over Portsmouth. Chelsea slip up again the day after our Pompey win, losing to rivals Tottenham for the first time in 16 years with captain John Terry sent off. Reds go three clear at the top.

    - The big two lock horns
    The Premiership hype machine goes into overdrive when champions meet challengers on 26 November at Old Trafford. Louis Saha puts the Reds in front, but a Ricardo Carvahlo header draws the visitors level. Final score 1-1.

    - Reds move on up
    9/10 December is a big weekend in the race for the Premiership as United beat City 3-1 and Arsenal nick a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. United's lead at the top stretches to eight points.

    - United stumble in east London
    Chelsea claw their way back into the championship race with a late rally at Goodison Park which sees them come from 2-1 down to beat Everton 3-2. United head to Upton Park but come up against a dogged West Ham side who run out 1-0 winners.

    - Boxing day blues for Chelsea
    Yet again, Chelsea fail to capitalise on United's recent slip-ups, drawing at home to Reading on 26 December. United pile on the pressure by beating Wigan 3-1 later that afternoon.

    - Happy new year!
    Four days later that four point lead turns into six when the Blues are held to a draw at home to Fulham. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is really hitting his stride and his two goals help see off Reading at Old Trafford.

    How it was won - Part 2

    ManUtd.com takes a look back at the pivotal moments in the 2006/07 title race as United claim Championship glory...

    - Newcastle with point to prove
    The heavy festive fixture list takes its toll as the Reds fail to beat Newcastle at St James Park on New Year's Day, young substitute David Edgar snatching a point for the Magpies with a dramatic long-range screamer. But again, Chelsea are unable to cash in on Uniteds stumble, drawing 0-0 at Aston Villa.

    - Double slip-up
    Chelsea go down 2-0 at Liverpool on 20 January and a Thierry Henry injury-time winner means United suffer defeat as well on their first visit to the Emirates Stadium.

    - Three points in it
    Chelsea cut United's lead to after 3 points after narrowly beating Charlton Athletic. But the Reds reply with an impressive 4-0 win at Spurs.

    - Craven Cottage clincher
    With Chelsea focusing on the Carling Cup final against Arsenal, United move 9 points clear thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's dramatic late winner at Fulham.

    - O'Shea Anfield scalp
    Reds go 12 points clear thanks to John O'Shea's winner in the dying seconds in front of the Kop. Chelsea cut the lead down to 9 later that evening with a win at Fratton Park

    - Keeping up the chase
    Chelsea make their game in hand count with a 1-0 win away at City in mid-March and cut the gap back to 6.

    - It's as you were
    With United again kicking off early and doing their job with a 4-1 win over Blackburn after coming from behind, Chelsea look like slipping up away to lowly Watford, but a last-gasp winner from Solomon Kalou keeps them in the title race.

    - South coast horror show
    United slip up away at Pompey 2-1. Chelsea had already gained revenge on Spurs with a 1-0 win and so cut the gap to three points.

    - The pressure mounts
    United's draw with Middlesbrough on 21 April makes the gap 4 points but it could be cut to one if Chelsea beat Newcastle the next day. Thankfully, they don't, drawing 0-0, meaning the gap is still 3.

    - Drama, drama, drama
    Both United and Chelsea kick-off at the same time - the Reds at Goodison Park and the Blues at home to Bolton. The title chasing pair both go behind in the opening minutes. Chelsea draw level and are 2-1 up at the break. United meanwhile find themselves 2-0 down not long after the restart. Fast forward 40 minutes and incredibly United are winning 4-2, while Chelsea are held 2-2 by the Trotters - United's lead is now 5 points after an unbelievable day in the Premiership.

    - Champions!
    A Cristiano Ronaldo penalty and a brilliant save by Edwin van der Sar from Darius Vassell's spot-kick late on puts United 8 points ahead on 5 May. Twenty-four hours later Chelsea fail to beat Arsenal and the Reds are crowned Premiership champions for the ninth time.
    What a season!!! Hope next season we can sew up the title earlier!!! And deeper squard!

    Reaction: Ex-Reds jubilant
    As United clinch their 16th League title, a host of the club's former players have been paying tribute to the achievement on MUTV...

    Paddy Crerand "United have been great to watch all season, the way they attack teams and obviously have scored more goals than anybody else. But Im delighted for the Manager, after the abuse he came in for from the media at the start of the season, about being on the road out. Im delighted as well for Ryan Giggs, to think what hes done is something that nobody else in history has, hes got nine Championship medals and thats some feat. Its fantastic for a team that was written off at the beginning of the season. All credit to Chelsea, they battled like hell right until the last minute but at the end of the day were champions."

    Alex Stepney "If ever a team deserved to win the title, United have. Theyve been at the top all through the season, been at the top and Im over the moon. Denis Law used to have a favourite saying, which was the wheel always turns, and I think the wheel has turned now for Mr Mourinho against Sir Alex."

    Frank Stapleton - "All season the team has been the most consistent in the league and without that you dont get to win championships. Theyve been there all the way through. Yesterday was a tough, tough game and they looked out on their feet, but they did enough to get through which was what champions do. The expectations are high here, but the players have come through and all credit to them."

    Paul Parker "Its absolutely brilliant that its been done today and itll be good to go to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday and take all the plaudits down there, itll be an enjoyable evening. Itll take a little bit of pressure off and itll be interesting to see how Chelsea react to it. Its a big test for them, are they going to go into it full-blooded or a bit hesitant, the main thing is that the best and most consistent side throughout this season has won the league. Thats what everyone should realise. Chelsea wont give out a lot, but everyone knows Manchester United have been the best team from start to finish. There cant not be a guard of honour at Stamford Bridge, United made one for Chelsea two years ago out of respect more than anything and Chelsea should follow it on."

    Clayton Blackmore "Im just delighted. I had a funny feeling it might go to the last day but the boys have done fantastically this season. The big point was starting the season so well and being in front. Its the way that weve done it this year, the football has been fantastic and a joy to watch. A lot of the players like Ronaldo and Rooney are more experienced now and theyre a fantastic team. Theyre still very young and I think theyre going to get better."

    David May "A title wins a title win, theyre all brilliant. The thing that was worrying us was the injuries but weve managed to claw our way out of a sticky situation at Fulham and games like that where weve had to dig deep, but it just shows the character weve got in the players. Fair play to the lads, they dug in at City and thanks to Arsenal today for holding Chelsea. Im actually with Scholesy at the moment at his lads party, and hes happy as Larry, as they say."

    Sir Alex insists he'll carry on
    Sir Alex Ferguson is adamant that he will continue as United manager after clinching his ninth Premiership title.

    Media speculation at the start of the season claimed that the Scot would leave Old Trafford, while there have been recent murmurs that he could step aside after his latest success.

    However, Sir Alex told Sky Sports: "You see the keenness and enthusiasm of players who want to learn all the time.

    "That gives you hope and it gives you encouragement that youre at the right club and why should I give up having some terrific young players and the great history that we have? Theyre important factors."

    The Boss, who backtracked on a decision to retire in 2002, is adamant that he will continue at Old Trafford for as long as he enjoys the job.

    "Its easy to retire," he said. "It only takes a quick decision and I did it some years ago. I regretted it probably within days.

    "Now I feel invigorated by the young players in our club and seeing players like Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes churning out every week for me. That gives me the vibes that Im in the right place and Im the right manager.

    "I dont know how long Im going to last but now Im enjoying it, and Im going to do it until I stop enjoying it."

    Glazers delighted by title triumph

    Reds' Chief Executive David Gill says United's ninth title triumph was greeted with great delight by the Glazer family.

    After seeing the Reds reclaim the Championship crown, Gill revealed he received a phone call from the club's owners on Sunday evening offering their congratulations.

    "Joel [Glazer] rang me after the Chelsea game had finished and was understandably delighted for everyone at the club," Gill told ManUtd.com.

    "It's a fantastic achievement for everyone associated with United - it's the trophy we all wanted. It was very important that we won it this year having not done so since 2003 and watched Chelsea walk away with it for the last two years.

    "It sends out a big message that Manchester United is very much at the forefront of football both in this country and Europe."

    Gill watched the action unfold at the Emirates Stadium at his house in Cheshire. Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Arsenal handed the title to United, but Gill admits the tension was almost unbearable as the game neared its conclusion.

    "I was very confident at half-time and after the break when Arsenal looked to be controlling the game," said Gill.

    "But Chelsea scored a good goal and from then on the tension was unbelievable - I was pacing round the room shouting at the television! But thankfully it all came good in the end.

    "Alex has been fantastic and is one of the best managers in the world," he continued, "but I know he'd be the first to acknowledge the great contribution of his whole team from the players to the backroom staff. It's a great day for everyone connected to the club."
    Next season he better pump in more $$$$$$ to retain the title n treble!

    WoooooooooOoooooooHoooOOOoOOOOoooooOooo!

    There is nothing like seeing Chelsea players loosing, more so seeing the look of Mourinho trying respond to the loss. Chin up you say, yeah right, you should hang your head down in shame for spending so much and acheiving so little, and the same goes for Abromovich for trying to buy every title. Shevchenko is probably to Chelsea what Asprilla was to Newcastle.

    I must say that it is really tough taking the challenge to them. They're like robots, as long the job is done, they dun care and the new standards they set. They're a strong side, mentally and physically. U can say that it took 3 sides and 1 man to stop them. Man Utd for challenging them for the title, Liverpool for dumping them out of CL, Arsenal for screwing them yesterday and Edwin Van de Sar for making sure the title was won last weekend. And I hope Man Utd can make what your chairman said come true (Chelsea spent 400m to win league cup) in the FA cup finals.

    Not one but three new players for the next season. That's the target of SAF and he have already identified them. My guess is Hargreave, Berbatov and maybe Gareth Bale. Players going out are rumoured to be Heinze and Louis Saha.

    Finally, justice prevailed as the The Football Association are to investigate Michael Ball's stamp on Cristiano Ronaldo during the Man City vs Man U match. He will get his just desert for the disgusting, coward, despicable and thuggery act.

    They're looking at the alleged headbutt by Fulham's Michael Brown on Liverpool's Xabi Alonso too. Ban them long long!

    Congrats to Manu, who played better than any of the teams this season.

    Can see alot of the Manu supporters here quite happy and over the moon, so this title means alot to every one of the supporters here.

    Anyway this week Chelsea play Manu, I have this funny feeling that if Manu loose that game to Chelsea; JM will start talking his 'special one' crap again.

    Manu beware!

    My thinking is Wed game will be a battle of smoke bombs...

    This battle has no meaning anymore...

    Chelski will not want to lose to their home fans and their proud home unbeaten record.
    Man U will not want to lose cos Champion mah...

    But will throw smoke bombs to smoke each other...cos the real battle is the FA Cup final...

    Maybe Chelski will take this chance to leave some stud marks on twinkle foot Ronaldo ?

    If I'm SAF, I'll play the reserve squad since we already are the champions and the first squad need a good break. They need to have sufficient rest before clinching the FA Cup.

    Yeah it means a lot to Man Utd and fans because we managed to break Chelsea's dominance after a tough fight and it gets sweeter when Man Utd was wrote off at the start of the season with just a 18m signing of Michael Carrick after sacking Roy Keane and selling RVN. I'll always remember the media and pundits said: 'Where're the goals coming from?' Just like what Alan Hansen said: 'U'll never win anything with kids!'

    I hope Man Utd will rest some players but I dun think SAF will want to lose. This match means nothing but for Man Utd's fans in England to taunt Chelsea's fans.

    It gets sweeter, it might be Chris Eagles, Richardson and Dong Fang Zhuo.

    I think Giggs' record of 9 EPL medal is going to stay for a long long time.
