Date published: Friday 17th January 2020 1:11

Man Utd are being surprisingly tipped to end Liverpool’s bid for invincibility, while there will be wins for Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City but a tough afternoon for Tottenham.


Each week our writers take on a different band or artist by making their Premier League predictions, while you can join in the fun using the story comment facility (below) or Your Say forum.

This time, Broken Witt Rebels‘ lead singer Danny Core, a massive Man Utd fan, is in the hotseat. Can he get the better of Marshy?

TEAMtalk: How did you come to support your club and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?

Danny: I became a Manchester Utd fan when I was about 6 years old. In the 80s my dad had got me a umbro coat that so happened to be the one Alex Ferguson was wearing on the touchline those days.

Loads of people from school would mention he was the manager of Man Utd so I decided to support them. I come from a family of Liverpool supporters so that was a bold decision.

My childhood had very great memories of Roy Keane, Sparky, Cantona etc ruling the division on our box telly in the living room. Then came the class of 92! A complete change of guard which at the time was deemed a rash decision from Fergie but look what magic came from that.

I’ve been to Old Trafford a few times over the years and always get along to Villa park and St Andrews ( band schedule allowing) if the boys are playing there. Amazing memories


TEAMtalk: Who have been your favourite 5 players for your club? (Historically or currently)

Danny: Scholes, Ronaldo, Cantona, Beckham & Ruud Van Nistelrooy. All United legends!


TEAMtalk: What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the season?

Danny: I think Man Utd are a team that have been in constant transition ever since Fergie left. I like the fact that Ole has got behind youth and promoting the old United way, but if I’m honest, I still dont think he’s the man for United.

He was sacked from Cardiff and isn’t very experienced or well known on the world stage. I worry he cant attract the world-class players Man Utd need at the moment in my opinion.

I think we need some serious end product, players brought in January to mix in with the youth we currently have. Marcus Rashford for me has been my star player for many years but I don’t think he’s ready to wear the captain’s armband.. David de Gea or Harry Maguire would be my choice as the on-field marshals.


TEAMtalk: Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?

Danny: I would have to say Birmingham City. I’ve been to many games there over the years most of my mates are blue noses. saying that though I always admired the Villa. I’m proud of my Birmingham roots, there is a song called Birmingham on the new album,  and want both teams to do well and always check both results on the weekend.


TEAMtalk: What’s going on with you as an artist at the moment?

Danny: We are very excited and have big things going on in 2020 We are touring the UK & releasing our brand  NEW album ‘OK HOTEL’ in March.

We’ll be playing  festivals through the summer & out to tour the US and Europe towards the end of the year.

Our bass player Luke and roadie Josh are big Wolves fans and are loving the football there this year, our new single “Running With The Wolves “ was used on Wolves TV on the highlights video when they beat Man City and they couldn’t contain themselves! 2020 has started really well for us we can’t wait for everyone to hear the album.
