Good old ignorance. You cannot beat it!
Plenty of talking points after the game yesterday between Blackburn and the Surrey Reds but the one that stands out most for yours truly is the lack of impact that Man United had in the final third of the field.
A lot of commentators and fans have decided that United were not as good as they should have been and have pointed to the lack of Wayne Rooney as the reason for the lack of cutting edge the Champions displayed.
I think this is doing a massive injustice to Blackburn Rovers.
Yes United were without their talisman and all round Scouse psychopath but they still had £100 million worth of talent on display and had more than enough about them with to get a result against most teams.
The reason that United were just dismissed as not having enough about them was more down to Blackburn having a great day at the office, proper organisation in the ranks and enough fight to fill the Octagon with that saw United reduced to an ordinary attacking force.
Man United thought they may have an easy day at the office with Sir Alex's big mate Big Sam in the opposition dugout and with Rovers having little to play for - many of their fans forecast a comfortable win.
Which is mighty ignorant and arrogant considering Rovers have lost only TWICE this season at home... the same amount as the champions themselves.
So for Andy Gray and his smug grin to sit there and state United as not having the talent whilst ignoring the real reason for their lacklustre showing (Rovers) was just flat out lazy and inaccurate.
I know it is difficult for some people to praise the unfashionable clubs but we barely got a mention?!
It is all about the big clubs and how the Old Trafford lot didn't show up.
They DID show up, we just stopped them from playing well.
Will we ever get the credit we deserve?
