DARREN FOREMAN: Giggs signs off in winning style

Probably the greatest player in Premiership history, Ryan Giggs (pictured right), played his last home game in this week’s 3-1 win against Hull and entered the arena to a rapturous applause from the Old Trafford faithful.

He has seen plenty of players come and go but only two managers which in comparison to Steven Gerrard is some feat.

On the pitch he has been a consummate professional and who can forget that FA Cup winning goal against Arsenal where he appeared to run past at least one Arsenal player at least twice.

He will remain at United in some capacity I am sure.

It was very sad to hear of the passing away of former British number one tennis Elena Baltacha (pictured below).

At the age of 30 it is far to young to lose her fight against cancer.

Obviously Lee Douglas and his men will be disappointed in their Yorkshire Shield final loss but they can be pleased with their cup run.

Next season with some more consistent league form, more luck with injuries I am sure they can push for promotion.

Liverpool’s inexperience in the title race would of appeared to have caught up with them.

As good as Palace’s comeback was, you would not see Chelsea or Man City conceding three goals in the last 20 minutes.

They will be stronger for the experience next season and who they purchase may increase their chances of a first title in a long time.

No team or quote of the week this week as I will name my England squad for the World Cup in Brazil before manager Roy Hodgson does.

Goalkeepers: Hart, Forster, Foster.

Defenders: Johnson, Baines, Jagielka, Cahill, Smalling, Stones, Shaw, Clyne.

Midfielders: Gerrard, Lampard, Lallana, Wilshere, Barkley, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sterling, Henderson.

Forwards: Sturridge, Rooney, Welbeck, Lambert.
