'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Hard Work Has Only Just Begun

Okay, we`ve qualified for the knockout stages, of the Champions League, with time to spare, which is a vast improvement on last season, but now is not the time to be resting on our laurels.

We should be under no illusions that the hard work has been done, in fact it`s fair to say that it has only just begun, a point Michael Carrick has picked up on when he`s quoted as having remarked, yesterday about the knockout stages,

'That is the big test.'

'That is when the competition really comes alive. We have done the first part. The second one is when we get the really big European nights and we go away to the best places in Europe and win games."

'We have managed to do that very well over the past few years. Hopefully we can get back to that.'


And with the final back at Wembley, a scene we know so well; is there a better incentive?

We've got the squad and depth to go far and I'm certain we can go toe to toe with anyone in the tournament par perhaps Barca (they're just too good and we don't play the football needed to beat them). Just need to sort out the inconsistency, defensive frailties and turn Old Trafford back into a fortress.

Interesting. No Chelsea fans telling us not to get carried away because they're going to do a quadruple and win the champions league, premier league, league cup and FA cup. Must be something to do with them firing yet another manager. Joke of a club...

Quite agree famous nice to see Rafa (facts) Benitez back though. How long till he has a melt down this time round?
MotorMad
Wonder if you can bet on how long before Benitez has a meltdown and gets fired? The average seems about 200 or so days. Chelsea are going to extreme lengths to get Torres firing, I wonder what they'll do next. Well, no I don't it'll be playing Europe league football but I wonder what it'll be after that? Change their strip to red? Relocate to Liverpool?
