400 million to tune into Premiership's final round

A world-wide television viewing audience of 400 million is expected to tune in for tomorrow's last round of Premiership action.

Last Monday, Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan told us all it was boring. Not according to Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson it's not.

He said: "I speak to people abroad and they love the Premier League.

"That's why they show it all over the world. When we played Arsenal the match was seen in 200 countries.

"It is the most exciting league in the world. What Kevin was saying is that it is predictable because it's the same top four.

"But I can see a wind of change. Everton nearly broke in and there'll be a lot of clubs below the top four spending big money this summer.

"Who would have thought around seven or eight years ago that Chelsea would be in the top four?"

There will be nothing boring about tomorrow. And, if United do win it on goal difference, it will vindicate once more Fergie's philosophy of attacking football.

He added: "We play the game the way we want it to be played. It is part of our history. I made the point that if you have a good goal difference it always gives you that edge."
