Let’s just suppose that
win the Premier league. Not too much of a supposition really; they look pretty good, have a nice squad to choose from and have a good manager with great tactical acuity. If they win it at a canter, so be it. Money giving the ability to buy quality has always been important in the modern game from Blackburn to Manchester City and all points between. Chelsea Ferguson is clearly not to be underestimated, although, perhaps his focus is that third European cup for himself having eclipsed Liverpool’s record.
The Premier and Champions League are out of reach for us; I’m not being defeatist I’m just saying it as I see it. So the domestic cups are up for grabs; that’s the way I see it.
Carling Cup is a realistic target as is the FA Cup, and I believe that we need one of these. Not through desperation but because they are trophies that we can win, as the vast majority of teams entering are beatable.
A win tonight not only keeps our momentum in all competition going but takes us a step forward to Wembley so come on you second stringers let’s take our chance.
