Do We Actually Care About The World Club Thingy?

Do We Actually Care About The World Club Thingy?

Well, United landed in Tokyo, ready to take part in the Club World Championships. We'll take on Gamba Osaka on Thursday, with the final being played on Sunday.

Now, don't you think that this competition is just a pain in the proverbial? I mean, wouldn't it be better if we got to play Wigan at Old Trafford this weekend instead of travelling round the world?

It should be an easy trophy - Gamba Osaka and LDU Quito should be no match for United even in our current form - but it has little prestige and could be extremely exhausting, with jet-lag and everything.

The competition cannot engage my enthusiasm to be honest, and I'm sure the players will feel quite the same. Fergie blasted the first Club World Championship in his autobiography and though it is a more serious competition since that, it's still a long way to go to be regarded as one worthy of real attention.

Still, we can claim being World Champions for a year if we do it - and remind Scousers that they managed to lose it when they had the chance to get the trophy.

Don't understand why everyone seems to be knocking down this trophy! Any team in Europe would KILL to be in our position right now! To me, its a very important trophy even though I hate the timing! To be crowned officially as the best team in the world is something I'm very much looking forward to!

It would be in United's best interest to actually try and win this Trophy.
