All eyes on Old Trafford.

March 14, 2009

“The Reds gave Madrid a Real lesson in football”, proclaimed Suffian, Public Relation’s officer for Brunei’s own Liverpool Supporters Club (LSCB). If anything that is an understatement as never can the famous all-white strip have so closely resembled a flag of surrender. Clearly still recovering from the euphoria of their demolition of the Spanish giants, you would be hard pressed to find anyone affiliated with Liverpool, or certain United fans for that matter, who doesn’t believe that Rafa’s charges will complete the double over another member of the big four this weekend.

As we saw at Chelsea and even against United in the reverse fixture that this season’s liverpool are not about to bend over and take it willingly in the big games. YJ, WDKF contributor believes that the threat from the reds will come from their talismans – Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard.

“Torres has come back from injury rejuvenated and very hungry. And not the KFC kind.”, he quipped. “And there really isnt anything I can say about Gerrard that hasnt already been said. We are talking about two world class players on the top of their game. And two great players are enough to beat any great team”

Based on the last six games in all competitions, United are the team in form having only conceding two goals. No doubt that the United defence have gone on to a whole new level but upfront they seem to be lacking the creativity which was so abundant last season and even more so the season before. The answer to all these questions posed by Liverpool might lie in that little figure who has warmed the bench a bit too often this term.

Our saviour

Manchester United saviour

Carlos Tevez along side Wayne Rooney in attack. Berbatov’s style, while deceivingly pedestrian, has been the key to unlocking teams but against Liverpool, United need someone who is willing to run that extra mile and then some. Throw in Ronaldo, Anderson, Park Ji-Sung and Fletcher and you’ve got that nice blend of art and industry that just might be able to contain liverpool’s midfield.

So although all eyes are on Old Trafford this weekend, Ben, another rep for LSCB doesn’t think the outcome of this clash will matter in relation to either team’s title aspirations, “Whatever the result, it will still be mathematically possible to catch up with United. There are still 10 odd games to play”.

    You guys almost had it, no Fletcher in the starting line up which is quite surprising. He’s a top yet under-rated choice for holding down the midfield.
