Former United defender David May previews the New Years Eve game with both of his former clubs that he represented in the Premier League, Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers.
Can we go top of the League for the Gaffers 70th birthday… Of course we can!
A few weeks ago it looked like City might run away with the title and everyone was getting upset but its funny how things can change. We have had one of the best Christmases in years, all the other top teams have dropped points while we are scoring goals for fun and have tightened up at the back. As I always like to say, keep the faith!
We still have a lot of work to do but I expect us to pick up another three points on New Years Eve, Blackburn have had a dreadful start to the season. Steve Kean has taken so much abuse and yet his players are still giving everything for him. You have to respect the man for trying but we are just plain better than them and will prove it early on Saturday afternoon. I am not sure what the situation was with Berba earlier on in the season but I am very happy to see him getting another chance in the first team. He has so much quality it is scary at times and as everyone knows he can score goals!!! I think the Gaffer will reward his good form with another start and I can see him getting hatful!
Danger man: Yakubu
Feed the Yak and he will score! He has an incredible record this season, he looked to be going nowhere with Everton, then went on loan to the Championship and it seemed like his career was winding down but Rovers needed a striker and he has filled that role perfectly. If Blackburn stand any chance of staying up he will be their main man. He scores all types of goals, is super strong, creative and finishes for fun. The only ever criticism you hear is that he is lazy but if you can put the ball in the back of the net who cares!
Prediction : United are gonna win 5-0 against Blackburn Rovers including another hat-trick for Berba!
