Manchester United 2 – Blackburn Rovers 3 – Steve Kean is a hero

by | 31st, December 2011

MANCHESTER United have lost 3-2 at home to Steve  Kean’s Blackburn Rovers, a team universally derided as being rubbish and managed by man the fans want out. Incidentally, it’s Alex Ferguson’s 70th birthday today. Happy birthday, Sir Alex from David De Gea and the lads. An era does not end with a bang – it peters out with the old guard hanging on.

Says Sir Alex Ferguson:

“I think I’ve got three years at the club. s long as my health stays up, and as long as I’m still enjoying it and still getting the satisfaction of the team doing its best.”


“People maybe say we’re great winners and all that type of thing, but I think we’re great losers. You know why? Because we don’t let it happen too many times and we’ve a certain attitude about that.”

He’s right, of course, Blackburn were were available at 20-1 before this game. The fact they won says less about United and more about football.
