It won't be long until Manchester United are collecting their Premier League trophy.
Given the fact there was a strong chance of United beating Aston Villa on Monday night, which they did convincingly, perhaps it wouldn't have been much to ask for the Premier League trophy to be on hand to top off the celebrations.
Instead the club have to wait, much longer than this weekend, for there will also be no formal presentation at the Emirates when they face Arsenal.
The date of the trophy presentation and medals has been announced - May 12.
It will take place after the club's final game of the season, at Old Trafford against Swansea City.
It certainly gives the players and staff something to look forward to, and allows them to get on with the business of trying to reach a new Premier League points record without the presentation a distraction.
And then one day later on May 13, a trophy parade will be held around the streets of Manchester, for fans to flock to the streets and turn the city red.
Are you happy with the presentation dates?
