Blog: Sir Alex's final game

West Brom vs United: Live text commentary | Live radio coverage

Sunday 19 May

19:43 All is now eerily quiet inside The Hawthorns. Only a few dozen members of the press remain, typing out copy ready for tomorrow's newspapers. It's been a strange day, but I must say it's been a privilege to attend and report on Sir Alex's final match as Manchester United manager. I hope you've enjoyed my coverage - look out for more reaction on (MF)

19:19 Via the social networking website Twitter, Rio Ferdinand has reflected on a remarkable game in the Midlands: "5-5.....what a mad result! Let's be honest the boss was never going out with a boring 0-0!!" (MF)

19:14 Baggies manager Steve Clarke is giving a brief press conference in the media room, saying: "We had a great plan A but that went out after the window after 10 minutes... I thought United were unstoppable!" He also praised his team's character and said: "I think anyone who was here in the stadium will remember that game." (MF)

19:03 Top-scorer Robin van Persie has spoken to MUTV, once again outlining why the entire team deserves credit for this season's title triumph: "The Barclays Premier League means everything and the Golden Boot is like a little bit extra but, as I explained last week, I think they should make 25 of them because we do it together." (MF)
