    ‘They need to do themselves a favour.
    Everton is not easy to beat at home, but 4-0 is a big result.
    We have no influence on that. But they are still playing for Champions League football and they need to get a result.’


    captain's response.

    Reading through Redcafe threads about the City game, and most of them would rather lose on Wednesday and see City win the title. Even though that would mean the EL for Utd.

    Imagine not wanting to be in the champions league at the cost of one of your rivals winning a title and not your city rivals. Bunch of bad meffs

    You would think why any fan wouldn't like to see a bitter rival win the title, pride would kick in and you would demand a performance at home in a derby.

    If there’s one thing this man utd team have shown consistently it’s that they won’t care what their fans want.

    I remember close to 30 years ago when we played Blackburn last game of the season. Kenny's team needed to win for the league. A defeat would let United in to steal it. It didn't make a difference to Liverpool, but much as I loved Kenny I could not cheer for a Liverpool defeat. I took my wife to the cinema, and came out to the happy news that Liverpool had won, but that United had failed to beat West Ham, giving Blackburn the Title anyway. Only rational explanation of the United fans' attitude is that they are a mentally and morally inferior people.

    I remember that afternoon and the cheers after Jamie I think scored and put us 2-1 up and then another cheer followed having learnt about United fucking it up. Still we had to win the game despite knowing what an advantage it was for United.

    We stood in the Kop, aged eleven, & began to cheer Blackburn on, we were soon told off by the older heads around us "Doesn't matter what other sides do lads, you ALWAYS support the reds".

    Our tiny, misguided voices for that first minute were the only dissenting voices we heard that day, the rest of the crowd were right behind their side. As it should be.

    You'd hope the Utd fans have a similar attitude when it comes to the actual game.

    I actually think they'll get caught up as soon as the game starts. Nobody wants to watch a loss to their city rivals.

    Exactly that. It's one thing to say it before the match, quite another to watch your closest rivals & traditional derby opponent & want them to beat your side on your own ground once it actually kicks off.

    It was 24 years ago! You had me thinking there for a bit... I remember it well, I actually know I guy in Germany that still supports Blackburn to this day because of that. But yeah, I could not ever support a different team or want us to lose.

    He's been in great form though, and they'll miss him.

    Imagine being a United fan and being told at the start of the season that your third last game was going to be a potential tittle decider

    Great news. Really think he’s the best midfielder in the world. Made of glass isn’t he though.
