I don't know about everyone else but I'm starting to take this competition very seriously indeed. We've scraped through with our second team twice, I think now it's time to put out our strongest eleven and really go for this. I think the upside of our biggest problems right now (the fact that we don't know who should be starting) gives us an edge in this competition. It means that if a player or players are getting particularly tired, they can swapped in a rotational system to keep our league form up. That's why we can get away with playing these cup games like a league game. I looked at our main challengers to the tournament: Man U will beat Aldershot Arsenal second team will struggle against Bolton Chelsea second team away to Everton Liverpool and Man City second teams away to Stoke and Wolves With a bit of the rub of the green (which we have been getting in this tournament so far) we could be in the quarters with only one or two teams that we wouldn't fancy our chances of beating. Even then, they will probably play second string until the semi finals, so what better chance do we have of a trophy. Time to end the wait and I'll be gutted if we don't go for this 100% and put everything we have behind the cup run.
