Well, if anything, Tuesday’s result showed us that United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is just full of crap.
After playing his youngsters throughout the entire competition, Ferguson stated only a couple of weeks ago that he would still field his youngsters in the Carling Cup semi-final at Eastlands. So what does he do? Play his strongest team possible against the blues.
Personally, I couldn’t care less what team he played out there and neither could any other blues fans, but it just goes to show that Fergie, despite his rantings over the summer about us being the ‘noisy neighbours,’ is genuinely concerned that we are a threat to his side, and will probably be a bigger threat than Liverpool and eventually Arsenal.
United fans will probably come up with some sort of rubbish to justify their manager’s actions but they will talk as much crap as their manager and it doesn’t change the fact that, despite their supposed ‘dominance’ of the game, they still lost to City and the blues now have a great chance of making the final.
Tuesday’s result means City need only to draw at Old Trafford to guarantee their place in next month’s showpiece, probably against Aston Villa, who play their second leg against Blackburn at Villa Park on Wednesday. Villa lead 1-0 from the first leg.
