Man United are the Champions
AUTHOR: – Doron

History was made last weekend at Ewood Park. Finally, United are the most successful league side in England. Old Trafford tomorrow should have a carnival atmosphere as the fans celebrate a triumphant season and send the players off to Wembley in style. However there is a twist in this joyous tale – Blackpool are fighting for their lives against relegation, for the sake of the league, this game must be treated with the utmost seriousness, much-like when United hosted West Ham on the last day of the 2006/07 season. Let’s enjoy our day but without wanting to dampen spirits, good luck to Blackpool.

Blackpool 2-3 Manchester United Talking Points

United celebrate

The last time the two sides met in the top flight was way back in the 1970/71 season, when the score finished 1-1. Denis Law was the scorer that day, in what turned out to be the penultimate match of the season, which didn’t really mean much to either side. Blackpool were already doomed to relegation and United finished in 8th spot, trailing league champions Arsenal by 22 points. Fast forward forty years and you will have witnessed one of the most entertaining matches of the whole season. Blackpool took a two goal lead before Manchester United fought back in typical Ferguson style to rescue all three points. As usual we assess the talking points below.

United vs. West Hame
One would think Manchester United is capable of taking all three points from the newly-promoted Blackpool, yet that away curse still looms large ahead of United’s journey to Bloomfield Road. Most were shocked when Blackpool earned promotion in the Championship play-off last season, and now they’re exceeding expectations in the Premier League. The Seasiders are currently 11th in the table, six points out of the relegation zone.

Will the cold weather give United a headache?

Bloomfield Road

United’s game against Blackpool tomorrow has been called off due to a frozen pitch at Bloomfield Road. There’s little doubt that this can be spun in both a positive and a negative way. I’ll assess the impacts of this postponement on United.
