I Luv It! I Really Luv It! Who knows that we will be this important to the other team premierhips title hope and a win against Chelsea would be open champagnes at Old Trafford and a deserve thank you letter personally from Sir Alex Fergusson for the Toon lads and Kevin Keegan.
In contrast to what happened around 12 years ago when we were the side who is in the title race with Sir Alex side, last night, Sir Alex backed his old ‘enemy’ Kevin Keegan to upset Avram Grant’s Chelsea side and help him to win the title this year.
“The way Chelsea have been talking, it’s as if it’s going to be easy up there. We know from our experience it won’t be that way,” Ferguson said. “I know Newcastle will do their job honestly in the same way West Ham did. You take Dean Ashton – he was a United fan as a kid – but he scored a goal that could have killed our hopes.”
The truth is, we have nothing to fight for actually in our last two matches this season. We are already securing our place in Premier League next season. But, in my opinion, it’s just a great bonus if we can win our last two games against the team that wears Blue shirt, especially Chelsea.
For tomorrow’s game, Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel or Claude Makelele will have difficult job to mark our skipper. If they do that there are certainly more big problems for their side as they will required another extra players to cover the other areas from Mark Viduka and Oba Martins.
This game will also be a great chance to test our three-pronged attackers against a team with solid defensive cohesion like Chelsea. Keegan’s diamond formation has never been tested against any of the top four side, so Chelsea could be one of them to taste the defeat against United’s transformations.
