Warnock's Warning To Man United

Warnock's Warning To Man United

Blackburn Rovers left-back Stephen Warnock has warned Manchester United that coming to Ewood Park this Saturday WON'T be easy and WON'T be a match they will be looking forward to.

Warnock believes that Man United (although they are five points ahead of Chelsea in the race for the Premier League Title and are odds on to do this) will be anxious about their visit to Ewood, as they will know it is a difficult place to go, and maybe the anticipation of moving even closer to winning the League could be to much?!?!

Warnock told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "They won't fancy coming to our place, and I think once we know we've got our tails up and we're disappointed with ourselves, we usually bounce back stronger and hopefully we'll do that on Saturday and we'll put in a good performance.

"Anyone can beat everyone in this league and everyone knows that. Results will go our way and results will go against us for the next couple of games and we understand that.

"All we can do is our job and hopefully that will be enough

Rovers HAD warned Liverpool of similar things last week prior to the visit to Anfield, but this didn't really work out as planned did it!!! However, Stevie W knows that things will sway back and fourth in the final matches of the season but Rovers MUST make the most of the chances they have and MUST finish the season strongly.

He added: "We've got four games left and we need to get results out of them.

"We need as many points as we can get and we want to finish as high as we can in the league. We need to set ourselves a benchmark for next year to beat.

"Last season was an up and down finish and we don't want that again. We've got to improve on that and we've got to have a strong finish to the season to give ourselves something positive to go into pre-season with

Fighting talk from Stevie W, and we MUST finish the season strong for that momentum going into the 2008-2009 season but I can't see us getting much this weekend dudes, even though we are at home I think Manure will be to strong for us (although I obviously hope I'm wrong!!!)

Gonna be a tough one this weekend although we do have a reasonable record againast them. All I want though is a more co-hesive performance from the lads.

Had enough of the talking, we had all this before the Liverpool game and we turned in a lackluster display, i want to see results on the pitch, im not saying i expect a win against Utd, but i expect a much more commited display and the basics off Football done properly.

Whenever we sound off to the press we lose... keep it quiet guys and let the pitch play do the talking... I am sure I am not alone in this line of thinking???

shoiuld be a very good (tough) ma#tch for both sides. hopefully we wont look too shakey in defence as we have doen for the past coupel of weeks as Vida is back. im going for a 2-1 to united, but a very very tough game. I hope SAF goes for: VDS, Brown, Rio, Vida, Evra, Ronaldo, Carrick, Anderson, Nani, Rooney, Tevez
