Darren Fletcher Praised United’s

Monday, October 6, 2008

Darren Fletcher praised United’s 7,000-strong army of supporters who took over Ewood Park on Saturday.

Blackburn might not be everyone’s idea of a Saturday night out, but United’s fans were in fine voice, and Fletcher says the support doesn’t go unnoticed.

“It was a great boost,” he told MUTV. “Our fans always fill that end of the stadium. They are fantastic. Our away fans are the best in the country. They get behind you and make it a great atmosphere. It was an away game, but our fans made so much noise that it felt like a neutral venue.”

There was plenty to cheer about as the Reds turned in an outstanding show of attacking verve in the second half. “It was as comfortable as it’s been here for a long time,” added the Scot. “We’ve always struggled here, it’s never easy. But we were on top of our game. We created a lot of chances and scored twice, but it could have been more.”

It wasn’t always plain-sailing. The Reds missed numerous chances to put the game out of reach before Rooney’s 64th-minute sealer. “It’s a dangerous scoreline, 1-0,” said Fletch. “Even though you’re in control of the game you have to find that second goal because anything can happen. Blackburn always put pressure on you. It just takes one mistake or a bit of brilliance and it’s 1-1 and game on.
