Cup treble for me please
Brain McClair got the winner the last time we won the Super Cup against Red Star Belgrade in 1991.This should be a priority and I hope we approach it with a level of urgency and pride. We have a big squad of players and they should be utilized and kept fit with these games. I'd hate to see us crash out early because the players are hard to motivate (something Jose said he struggled with in the season he won it).
Also I've never seen us win the Super Cup and it's annoying we've have lost every single time I've watched a final. That's three defeats now-99, 08, 17
- It's a way into the Champions League
- The club has gone 5 years without a trophy
- It starts the new era with a clear sign of progress
I don’t think it’s fair for youth players to take a step back in the latter stages of the Europa if they were responsible for us getting there in the first place. I don’t think we’d win the Europa. I suspect we’d be lucky to get 4thGroup and early knockout stages play the youth and second team. If we qualify to the later stages then we start to take it seriously by fielding best 11. However, PL should still be priority.
The Mickey Mouse cups Carling and FA Cup let's give the youth some valuable experience and the 2nd team some game time. Don't risks our first 11 at all. It's really not worth it.
