Vidic: Winning The Carling Cup Is A Big Thing

Vidic: Winning The Carling Cup Is A Big Thing

Nemanja Vidic believes winning the Carling Cup for the second consecutive year is nothing to scoff at, as the top six teams in England are strong enough to hold their own against anyone and that's why every trophy is worth a lot here.

"At the moment in England there are six teams who look very good and all those teams can take points off each other. That makes you realise how tough English football can be."

"Winning the Carling Cup is a big achievement. In the past people have written it off but you saw the team we put out on Sunday - there`s no doubt we wanted to win."


Vidic went on to add that United deserved to win as Villa created very little and after the equaliser we were fairly comfortable at the back while creating chances up front. Which is perfectly true.

As for the Carling Cup: I said it many times, it's one of the best competitions for a fan as going out of it is no big blow but winning it is still sweet enough, especially after such hotly contested games like the Man City semi-final. Both City and Villa wanted to win this competition very much so it wasn't a battle between uninterested teams, it was a very real competition this season. Which is good.

I will agree on that,as Zae has stated city and villa both looked at this cup seriously and we have done well to retain it and to win the CC at this stage will surely help us in chasing down the other trophies,it creates a feel good factor to already have one trophy in the bag and be close to the rest.

No doubt we'll get some idiots on here laughing at how much we value the carling cup and telling us that its only because we know we wont win anything else this year. For me though, I always want United to win every game. It doesnt matter whats on the line. I was really annoyed when we lost the super cup last season. When your team is in a final it doesnt matter how big or small the competition why wouldnt you be happy for them to win? I still cannot fathom why Wenger doesnt try harder to win this competition. Surely some silverware is better than none?

I'm glad we won the cup this season it ensures that we won't end the season empty handed.
