Even before Chelsea lifted the Champions League trophy last night, it was apparent that the days of us being able to win the Premer League and Champions League in the same year are over for the time being. The competition in both has gone up a level (when Barca remember how to score). No shame in that, it was tough enough in the first place. But there's little denying that we allowed Europe to pass us by this season while we focused on the domestic battle with City. Hindsight makes that quite regrettable. The league should always be taken seriously, it's every club's bread and butter, week in, week out, and if we were to go all out to get back to Wembley again next year to win Sir Alex his third CL, that doesn't mean a season where we finish 6th in the table should be acceptable - or anywhere outside of the top two and out of the title race with months to go. But what is the priority? For fans and the club? Champions League glory or winning the title back from City? For me it's got to be giving everything to get to another CL final at Wembley, even though 'home advantage' hasn't been much of an advantage at all over the previous two seasons. That 20th title would be lovely but that perch has been seen to with the 19th... A third European Cup seals Fergie's rep as the undisputed greatest of all time and gives him his happy ending. At the same time, it's worth pointing out that we had no European football to distract us in this run-in and it turned out to be arguably our worst.
