UNITED PASS UP CHANCE FOR A DOUBLE!
Granted, that's being greedy and spoilt but what's the point of progressing so far in domestic Cup competitions if its not to win it.
I was hence disappointed (not with the team line-up) but with the energy and desire on display at Stamford Bridge on Monday. It spoke volumes that the boss himself couldn't see us scoring a goal. To be fair Chelsea deserved to go through but we didn't make them sweat as much as they should have. I thought the player played as though the league was just enough for them while Chelsea knew that could be the only trophy they win this year. I don't think we would have turned in such a performance if we were in their shoes.
I mean for all the talk at the start of the season regarding how the players wanted to win the Cup, you thought they'd play with heart and desire for it, but alas, we wait to be treated to the same old tirade next season.
Ultimately though its just the league for us now. We've been very poor since the Real Madrid game and so I hope we really step it up to the finish line. The City derby is up next on Monday and what a perfect opportunity for our players to redeem themselves from what has been so far a lifeless start to the month.
Let's show Mancini just how many points he is behind us.
