Manchester City's Epic Victory.

Well yesterday really was so exciting, at times it was too nerve wracking and there were even moments when I could not watch any longer.

That was when Manchester City could not seem to get their winning goal, which would have been wonderful for the red half of Manchester.

Today I almost feel sorry for Manchester United that they did not win; they fully expected the trophy to go to them.

in fact when Wayne Rooney scored against Sunderland, they thought that was the winning goal, then just as the Manchester United fans and their manager Alex Ferguson were about to celebrate, their joy was short lived.

Sadly for the Reds, the result of Manchester City’s game was visible on the scoreboard much to everybody's shock and stunned disappointment

That was the very moment when the Manchester City supporters realised that finally after a long wait of 44 years they had won the Premier League trophy once again, the last time they won was in 1968.

The explosion of joy was wonderful to see, especially as minutes before they thought that they lost at the last moment.

Seeing Noel Gallagher from the well-known Manchester band Oasis having his photo taken was a lovely sight.

This morning we heard him talking on the radio about how wonderful it was that his club had at long last won the coveted Premier League trophy.

Noel then told a very funny story that he heard, that a Manchester United fan had printed up 100 0’s of red T-shirts, with the slogan on them saying:

Why Is It Always Us!

I almost feel sorry for Alex Ferguson, the manager and for the Manchester United team as well as fans.

It must have been very sad for them to cancel their red bus decorated with red ribbons for their victory tour of Manchester.

Instead everything was cancelled including all their parties and now they have had to watch the blue side of Manchester celebrating since Sunday.

This has me wishing that this will happen many times for Manchester City, there really is nothing better then the old order getting overturned.

Surely that is what life is all about, progress and not stagnation; it is really brilliant that finally Manchester United do not have it all their own way.

The football season 2011 to 2012 has really being full of unexpected twists and turns, it’s been a truly brilliant season, I hope to be able to enjoy the next season starting in August.

It seems that they are still plenty of good things for me to look forward to, even though I am now a tetraplegic, I am glad to be alive in the here and now
