All of them won the league title just few hours ago. FC Barcelona won without even playing as Real Madrid were defeated 3-2 away to Villarreal. Manchester United drew with Arsenal 0-0 and that was enough to win the title officially. Inter Milan won without playing too as AC Milan lost 2-1 to Udinese. Luis Figo, 36, officially announce his retirement from football after they were crowned champions.

"This is the first time I am champion without playing," he told A BOLA. "This is the best way to end."

"I will not play again at the highest level," he said. "And I will most likely not accept any offer. Only if something special emerges and it is from outside of Europe. But it is not likely."

FC Barcelona won the league with three more matches left this season and scoring an incredible and impressive 103 goals from 35 matches! Inter too won the league with three matches left but only scoring 62 goals from 35 matches. Manchester United have one more match left and they only scored 67 goals in total. FC Barcelona are probably the team in the best form this season throughout the world and are in the best position to win the Champions League end of this month to earn a treble. Both of them will meet on the 27th May 2009 for the final showdown!

I watched the controversial Newcastle VS. Fulham match last night and I really pity them for not winning the match. There was a disallowed goal from Mark Viduka and a red card for Sebastien Bassong. Now, Newcastle United will have a difficult chance to save their season and Alan Shearer is the most pressured manager in the whole Europe right now.
