It's thirty games played now in the Premier League for United and despite all the problems we've had in defence, despite losing two of our best players including the best player in the world without signing any 'media catching' replacements, we still have a chance to make history.

Eight games now separate us from becoming England's most successful club domestically as well as the first team to win the Premier League four times in a row.

Beating Fulham was very essential yesterday given that both our rivals had won their games on Saturday.We started the day in third but victory restored us into first place (albeit with a game more than Chelsea). Wayne Rooney continued his dream form with yet another brace while Berbatov managed to get a goal out of four chances. It was Good result against one of the few teams that are capable of embarrassing us even on our own patch. More satisfying was that we managed to keep a sixth straight league clean-sheet at home. It's now zero goals conceded since Rio joined Vida and EVDS in that defence. We'll definitely do something special this season if we have those two around for the rest of the season.

We've now got seven days to prepare for what should be a season defining game for us this season---Sunday lunchtime against Liverpool. The preview for that will explain why its not just Liverpool we're up against. The fixture list in more ways than one dictates that failure to win on Sunday could put paid to our title hopes.

Before then it's a case of the British media hyping the game in all sorts of ridiculous ways. A more worthy something to do in midweek is watch Chelsea vs Inter and make out our odds in Friday's Champions League quarterfinal/semifinal draw. FLOM will react to the draw seconds after it is completed.
