the champions of england, europe and the world have always been the team to beat in the premier league this season. very soon, they'll be the team to catch.

for all of ferguson's claims to contrary, an unbalanced fixture-list is working out to their advantage. all of their difficult away fixtures are out of the way and with old trafford now fixed as the venue that will determine the destination of the league title switching focus to both the fa cup and champions league should prove less problematic.

august's european super cup marked a rare setback but with the club world championship already secured and the league cup likely to follow, the potential for United's season is unprecedented. A treble was served in '99 and the ultimate double last may, but a repeat may not settle their thirst this year.

Nevermind the quadruple, start practicing your pronunciation of 'Quintuple'.
