Who Needs The Carling Cup When You've Won Nothing For 30 Years?
Funny ideas I know. Perish the thought that we might actually try to WIN a trophy. Perish the thought that we might actually seek to secure a place in Europe. Perish the thought that the club might try to reward the fans with a day out at Wembley. Dear God, what crazy idiot came up with the idea that football was about winning Cups and giving fans a taste of glory!
For once, I would be happy to see a keeper rested, but only because I want Green dropped anyway. For once, I would be happy to see Cole stood down, but only because he is out of form and we need to see if McBenni can do the business. But apart from those changes, if Grant surrenders our place in the Cup through stupid rotation, I will be seething.
To my mind, we should see the same team as on Saturday, except for Boffin in goal, Dyer in place of the injured Behrami and McBenni in for Cole. There should be no place for Spector, Tomkins, Stanislas, Sears or Kovac. We saw a glimmer of hope on Saturday so let's build on it, not throw away the feel good factor by exiting early from the competition that we stand the best chance of winning!
