Where To Put Your Money vs Blackburn

Ewood Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for United in recent years as far as victories go, but bookmakers make them 1.4 shots to beat Blackburn and in their current form it would take a brave man to back against them not securing all three points.

Rovers recorded a shock 3-2 win against United at Old Trafford on New Year’s Eve, but currently sit just three points clear of the relegation zone following their loss to Bolton Wanderers last week.

But they have won three and lost just one of their last five games at home, while United are aiming for their first win at Ewood Park since October 2008.

However, this looks a great opportunity for United to put that record straight given their current mood.

The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 16 away games in the PL, and come into the game on the back of six successive victories.

They have taken 28 points from the last 30 available in an impressive run which has put them top of the league and three points clear of arch rivals City -  and Sir Alex knows what is required to hold onto that position.

He is sure to have instilled into his players the importance of the remaining 8 games on the run-in, and i don’t think that they will let him down here.

Wayne Rooney is in terrific form at present and has scored four goals in his last five outings against Blackburn.

He has netted 17 times in the last 17 games in all competitions, and is not surprisingly favourite to score first at 3.6 with Paddy Power.

However those odds look very skinny, and Chicharito and Welbeck look better value at 5 and 6 respectively with Boylesports.

Whoever scores first, I expect United to win this with a bit to spare.

I like the look of 3-0 and 3-1 in the correct score market, and those outcomes can be backed at 9.5 with Paddy Power and 11 with bet365 and Betfred.

    nicked from someone else……..

    Man City’s directors are bemused by the spring of pure mineral water bubbling up in the middle of the playing surface at the Etihad stadium. Looks like they’re going to bottle it.

    hello lads

    @eric keane

    right now, Strootman is FAR superior to Tunni in every facet of the game. Strootman is severely underrated if he was to sign with us he would be our best CM…if Scholesy retires ha

    Secret Glazer deal to sell Old Trafford naming rights Manchester United owners the Glazer family has struck a secret multi-million pound deal with PepsiCo to rename Old Trafford. The deal, which will come into effect from the start of the 2012-13 season, will bring more than £400 million into the club coffers over the next 10 years, a source close to the deal exclusively revealed to United Rantthis week

    what up pal

    Tom Cleverley On Paul Scholes

    “I can learn a lot from Paul.

    “He is a great player and gives me good competition for a place in the side.”

    Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben could reportedly join Manchester United this summer, as he stalls over signing a new contract with Bayern Munich.

    What is true now is that the Newcastle run is not a fake or farce..

    they are level on points with Chelsea, i know Chelsea have been shit but Magpies just about doing the right thing…and City yet to visit St. James’

    Standing beside a few loserpool fans watchin their game and they just gave up. They don’t know what to do. Cittay are in the same boat.
    Manager reckons he’s mystic meg, but were gonna win. So where does that leave him. He’s wrong once, his team will reckon he’s wrong all the time. They know were comin for them. We just don’t stop. I said weeks ago weed not need to win at the emtihad and I stand by that. The result for spurs will force the arse to really go for it.
    I LOVE SUPPORTING THIS CLUB.

  21. Lebomanc says:

    Sandeep
    Hahaha :)
    The dive was hilarious and he was still fighting and arguing for a penalty…
    Interesting game though

  22. Clint-Iamyourpapii says:

    Serious !
    Iced Earth is Sanchu ?

    Never would have guessed that, Iced Earth consistently misspells words and does have at times the poorest of grammar, didn’t think someone could replicate or cut that out in order to have multiple personas. Jeez the effort he put in…..

    Dunno who sachu is or haven’t spoke to him, but this guy sounds like a notorious fiend that troubles RoM.

    Anyways who was that fella that outshined Christian Ericksen when we faced Ajax or was it just me…I think it was Siem De Jong or the other midfielder ?

  23. Hans says:

    But for Sunderland’s failure to hold on to their lead, this was a great weekend for us. Two better teams that Shitty has to play away are still playing for something. I do not thing Shitty will win at either Arsenal or Newcastle.

    I would not be surprised if we went to Wastelands with an unassailable lead.

    Come on United. We need maximum concentration, no complacency or cockiness and we”ll be fine!!!!

  24. FletchTHEMAN says:

    NBI You have a source for that news about Pogba or you just contributing to the tom foolery?

    I prefer action!

    Speaking of which…… Who switched the foot spray at City training ground??

    Now that is one brilliant April fool :lol:

  25. James21 says:

    Is sachu Iced Earth? Tell you what I’d never have guessed. Does that mean that iced Earth is also fannyboy, fake smartalex, 2012, voice of the voiceless and WeAreUtd. Have I missed any?

  26. Clint-Iamyourpapii says:

    SAF on our goalscorers;

    “Usually, we have had one outstanding scorer – Cristiano Ronaldo or Rooney. Last year, the sensation was Chicharito.”

    He mentions earlier in the article that Berbatov has scored x many goals this season, yet omits his participation in our goalscoring exploits last year, after all it was Berba who won golden boot and was our top scorer, it would be nice to receive at least some sort of recognition instead of none.
    I know Berba is on his way out and wasn’t wanted since Chicha came, but i’m sort of embarrassed by SAF’s treatment of Berba, it is disrespectful.
    SAF is a Messiah, he saved United and built the club to be this big but C’mon Fergie Be Nice for a bit
    Berba knows its over, we know he’s finished, sticking the knife in justifies the hate he received in his first two years with us and totally neglects the fact without him, we would not have won 19th.

    …..Moving on…..Blackburn is a must win ! We must show the world, we are ruthless and have jumped over FC Mancheslona with ease and composure to finally put to bed that the idea Shitty are “moral winners”.

    Rival fans are looking at us now and saying the following;

    “United should win the league, once they are top, they don’t let go”
    ” United at this stage of the year are in 5th gear, everything just seem inevitable”
    ” Everything falls into place for them, you’ll have to pull it from their dead hands to win”.

    We Must Win ! 8)

    I was worried about this game, then i read this;

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/apr/01/government-email-social-network-surveillance

    and now i realise football is a game. These fuckers want to take away something more than a league title. Spread the word.

  29. James21 says:

    sachu is stupid. Simple as really.

  30. Justin10RvN says:

    @Clint

    it as Siem de Jong, he’s good but somewhat inconsistent and his “lows” are god awful whereas when he’s on his game he’s a pain, he can also play as a CF he just needs some consistency before he takes a step up from Ajax

  31. MG says:

    Willie isn’t stupid

    He’s my right hand man or is that left?

    Believe me. I am not sachu.

  39. iced earth says:

    “He’s definitely a future captain,” stated Sir Alex. “There’s no doubt about that. I said that from the minute he came to us that I thought there was something about the boy.”"He was doing great until he started getting all these injuries and a bit of illness with ‘flu.”That kind of thing has derailed his time with us as he and Chris Smalling have had a nightmare, the two of them.”If they can stay fit for the rest of the season, it’ll be a big bonus for us because they are exceptionally good young players.

    James21
    je serait tres happy si tu me croyait putain je suie pas sachu

  41. MG says:

    Are you an X file?

    :lol:

  42. James21 says:

    It proves nothing sachu.

    I would also be happy if you’d stop this stupid using of different monikers. You are sachu its so obvious or fannyboy or 2012 or voice of the voiceless. Leave the blog or grow up.

  43. WillieRedNut says:

    This mope keeps mentioning me by name, I might have to set the dogs on him. They haven’t been fed in a while…..

  44. denton davey says:

    Sandeep @ 18:01: ” City yet to visit St. James’” [now called "Sports Direct Arena !]

    Good call – there’s been a lot of emphasis on ManShitty’s visit to TheArse but their trip to the north-east is also full of jeopardy as TheLads found out !

    Newcastle’s attacking game is very, very good; right now, they’re missing BOTH of their central defenders, too. NOT THAT THAT MADE ANY DIFFERENCE AGAINST THE VERMIN !!!!!!

  45. Costas says:

    @Papii

    Wow mate. Fergie really neglected to mention him? Couldn’t agree more with your comment.

    @MG

    Don’t make sachu big deal out of it. Sides don’t matter. :lol:

  46. enzophonics says:

    Iced Earth is not Sachu lads. There were two Sachus who had a goal at each other earlier last year. Iced Earth doesn’t have the same command of english. There’s one fool out there, or two come in ad regmeelicker or whatever aka fake smartalex etc

  47. Booch says:
