Carrick Looks Ahead

Carrick Looks Ahead

Last May seems an age ago and its fair to say that so much has happened since that eventful night at Wembley.

Several players have left Old Trafford and some exciting additions have arrived.

To that effect hopes are high that United can make another serious assault on the Champions League and that any ghosts can be laid to rest in Munich this coming May.

Michael Carrick, who is expected to play in our group opener, against Benfica in Lisbon, following the news that Tom Cleverley will be sidelined for three weeks, has given a few philosophical views on that night at Wembley and the way forward, remarking in the media,

"The Champions League Final doesn`t hurt still. It was disappointing because we lost the final, but it wasn`t a massive failure. We got to the final."

"It`s something you look back on and regret, but you can`t change it."

"You have to accept they were good and it`s up to us to be better. That has to be our aim this season. I haven`t watched the final again. I went on my holidays and then focused on this season."

"We know we`re doing things right because we were in the final. We just have to go one better."


Two points!

Has anyone watched the final again and can we go one better this year?

Why on Earth will I watch it again? :P The Champions League is definately a winnable competition and we've come on leaps and bounds from last year with much nicer and fluid attacking football with plenty of goals to go with it as long as the team continues to work hard anything is possible.
