    stoke team

    Sad but true: I forgot about the c cup match until late Wednesday eve - I wondered who Chelsea had played as loads of fans at the station, it was only when I googled it I realised...

    That said, I think football's all about the cups and all about glory, not calculated moves to retain a position as 4th best. Really, is the only competition 'Arry will take seriously now that one?? If you have one 'blooding' contest that's one thing, but do that seriously too; the Utds of the world don't just dump youth players in there, they combine them with squad players and other experienced types to aid their development, and you could never accuse them of not playing to win.

    I firmly believe any cup is as important as you make it; our c cup game against goons (I think 2 seasons ago - they beat us at the Lane) was a farce, but you couldn't say that about the Manc-off semi final of the same competition last year. That's why I'm proud of our win in it 3 or 4 years back, and why I'll be cheering on for the Europa matches even if the powers that be take the michael with their team selection/s.
