I've already had my say as far as this game is concerned. Manchester United's second string of players has to stand up and be counted after a dismal showing in the first leg of this fixture. This is one game where one goal will not do for us as we are already trailing in this fixture. Sir Alex has already said he will still rely on the young lads for the second leg so hopefully, they'll be up to the task. Some could find themselves loaned out if we get knocked out tonight as the rest of the competitions basically demand a first team. A trip to Wembly Stadium is the prize for the kids should they make it through. Two goals or more against a struggling Derby should not be something impossible to ask from them. Yes they'll be up for it but so should we. We're at home and so we should play with the authority of World Champions. Spurs put a Championship side in their place with a home demolition job of Burnley. It's time we do the same. It's Silverware at stake here and given the level of competition these days, you can never turn down an opportunity to win a Cup. Hopefully, the boys at Carrington are listening!
