02 May 2009 : Boro (Away) - BPL
Middlesbrough. In Premiership era, we only lost twice to them at Riverside. We won 8 and draw 3 matches. But just to be aware, the last two matches at Riverside (1 in EPL, 1 in FA Cup) we just drew with them 2-2 in both games. Therefore, we couldn't have complacency with this game.
If we can produce the same intensity during first leg of semi in UCL, we can win this game. We are fast, organized, and discipline.
Fergie said that he will re-shuffle his players for this Boro match, just to rest players who will play at Emirates 3 days later. We came to this exact situation in 2007, which we produce sublime comeback against Everton and embarrassingly defeated 0-3 at Milan 3 days later.
With Liverpool playing against Newcastle, we need to be at the top of our game as well. If we lose, we will be second-placed with lower goal difference.
Target for this game is to get 3 points, high scoring margin, no injuries.
There are only 7 matches to go to complete this quadruple season. To get 7 out of 7 wins will make sure we are living in Theater of Dreams! Glory Glory!
Line-Up: Van der Sar, O’Shea, Evans, Vidic, Evra, Ronaldo, Park, Anderson, Nani, Macheda, Welbeck
Prediction: 1-0 United
