Fletcher`s Mantra!

And still it damn well hurts!

Every time I open a paper there`s something that reminds me of that dreadful Sunday afternoon, those two hours whereby our hopes and dreams were shattered as a sky blue tidal wave enveloped us and swallowed us up.

In a way I`m looking forward to getting back into action tonight, even though it is only the Carling Cup.

But before we kick a ball in anger again, perhaps we`d better tale solace from the words of one of the vanquished on Sunday, Darren Fletcher.

Fletcher, quite rightly, wants everyone to remember Sunday but also wants everyone to acknowledge there`s still along way to go this season when he`s attributed as having quoted to the media,

"I kept telling the lads after the game to remember how it feels to lose by this score-line."

"But it`s a long season and there are no medals handed out in October."

"There are still 29 games left. It is a bad result losing to Manchester City but this doesn`t mean the league is over. We have to respond and win our next game at Everton on Saturday."

"City are in a great position but so were Chelsea last year - in fact they were eight or nine points clear."

"They are the team at the top and everyone will want to knock them off."

The yare very wise words indeed!

Right, now let`s set about Aldershot at the Recreation Ground tonight!
