Shabani Posted April 5, 2010 Share Posted April 5, 2010 Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United 10-04-2010 For the first time since the Hughes' days rovers fans go into this fixture with that little bit of confidence. Rather than dread the moment that united put their 4th past us and their fanbase (in Lancashire) of 24 million come out and declare 'we iz well mint and you lost iz ######', most of us see a point as minimum from this game. United looked rudderless and a one man team against Chelsea, the only way United looked like scoring is if someone threw the ball into....oh wait... :S With the Darwen end Massive moved and dispersed around the ground the Blackburn End needs to step upto the plate and provide the kind of atmosphere a Sunday 1:30 game is famous for. WAYNE ROONEY Like every team that faces United at the moment, we pray that the man above is injured. 88 league goals this season put him even above Kalinic in the goal scoring charts, even when hughesy adds all of Kalinic's disallowed goals and woodwork hits as actual goals, he is still struggling to catch up to Rooney. If Rooney doesn't play it’s likely that United will go one up top with Dimitar Berbatov leading the line in his unique, languid style that evokes memories of bygone days, when strikers weren’t the all action machines they are now and played at a more serene pace PHIL JONES Exactly the kind of local hero who gets the masses salivating. Hard tackling, hard heading and no fancy passes make this man most Rovers' fans wet dream come true. Since his first league game against Chelsea the man has received plaudits that most Rovers players can only dream of, a place in Garth Crooks team of the week squad TWICE and praise from Mr Pundit himself, pundit Alan ‘Pundit’ Hansen (could have been Lawro though, not sure...) THE MATCH Blackburn to win 2-1, Roberts to miss 4 sitters to seal it at the death, Andrews to miss a penalty and Phil Jones to score a rocket of a header Kalinic will also score and hit the post twice, putting him on 14 goals since Christmas Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
