Sheffield United Vs Blackburn Rovers

match preview by ihatethedingles

On paper this match is a formality, a Rovers win with Benni and Gamst scoring a wonder goal, but as we all know football isn't played on paper and this match will be a lot harder than it looks on paper. Sheffield United like ourselves have only one point from their opening three games yet more encouraging for them is that they took their only point against the big spenders of Liverpool and were very unlucky not to take all three points on the opening day of the season had Gerrard not gone all fairy like in the penalty area.

Both sides will be looking for an upturn in fortune after both being defeated twice in the three games they've played this season.

Players to Watch


Andre Ooijer-After his awful debut he has a lot to prove, the club has invested a fair bit of money in this man due to his excellent performances for PSV and for the Dutch National side. He may have only played one game against the might of Chelsea and a lot of us are judging him on that one match and as such he does have a lot to prove. Given time to adjust to the Premiership pace and physicallity he should turn out to be a good signing, not every player can have the same immediate effect that a certain Mr Nelsen had.

Morten GASMT Pedersen-Since he decided to change the name on the back of his shirt, he has looked a different player, who am i trying to kid, he's still not beating the first man with his corners and is offering very little down the left but we all know what he can do in a blink of an eye and the Sheffield United players will have to keep an eye on him.

Shabani Nonda-This lad has got all the skills, the pace, the strength for a small man and if he stays fit and plays to the standard he has played to in the past in Ligue 1 and Serie A he will terrify defences in the Premiership as defenders don't like pacey strikers and Sheffield United's back four will be exactly the same.

Sheffield United

Phil Jagielka-He has been scouted by numerous Premiership clubs but no one has taken the gamble on him when players like Michael Brown has been gambled on and IMO Jagielka is a lot better player than him, he is a versatile player who can happily fill in at any postion at the back and normally plays in the centre of their midfield as a ball winning midfielder who feeds the ball through to their strikers.

Rob Hulse-Never made it at Premiership level, always been the bridesmaid when at WBA, made something like four substitute appearances for them in the Premiership and was sold to Leeds United after being told he wouldn't be good enough for the Premiership. Now he's back in the Premiership and scored on his debut, Premiership start against Liverpool.

Paddy Kenny-This man could be in for a busy afternoon should Nonda and McCarthy get the service they need, a top keeper IMO and i am very suprised he is still at Brammel Lane, i would have thought a bigger club would have taken a gamble on him in the same way i thought with Jagielka.
