Weekend Outlook (19 Apr 2008)

Blackburn Rovers vs Manchester United

"He(Fergie) will want to stick with his trusted First 11 and go for the final push for both titles."

-Gary, 19 Apr 2008

With a 2 points lead and a game in hand, i really dont see Man Utd will slip up. So long as next weekend Man Utd get a draw at Stamford "Iron Fortress" Bridge, they are technically champions. Im not being arrogant for it as there are some conspiracies going on.

Alex McLeish in Birmingham, Mark Hughes in Blackburn, Steve Bruce in Wigan, anything in common? These 3 current managers of the respective clubs have play for Fergie when he was in charge of Aberdeen and Man Utd. And guess what, these 3 clubs have taken 14 points from Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea this season.

I dont know why i have this feeling. But it just occurs to me that majority of them rather let Man Utd win the title than hand-ribbon it to Chelsea or Arsenal. One of them is ihawk98. hahaha. A true Spurs fan who just dont like the sight of Arsenal or Chelsea being champions. Remember the final scoreline between Spurs and Chelsea earlier this season? 4-4!! 2 points lose for Chelsea. And we have to thank Spurs for that.

Anyway, coming back to this weekend match, some good news to share. Wes Brown, Rio Ferdinand and Michael Carrick have extend their contracts. With one eye in midweek against Barcelona, I think Fergie will not disrupt the momentum as in thinkering with the formation. He will want to stick with his trusted First 11 and go for the final push for both titles.

Blackburn Team News: Jason Roberts and David Dunn are back from injuries.

Man Utd Team News: Vidic, Nani and Fletcher are back. Louis Saha is out, injured his hamstring once again. Anderson and Hargreaves are slight doubts for this match.

Odds and Analysis: With a 0.75 ball handicap, take Man Utd for the win.
