The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Carling Cup

There were some surprises in the Carling Cup last night as some big names said goodbye to the competition.

Still remaining is Manchester United with a convincing win over Scunthorpe 5-2 including 2 goals from Michael Owen. Now is he likely to bounce back into form and earn himself a regular place in the main side ?

Roberto Mancini kept his main players in reserve ready for the weekend match with Chelsea which meant that Manchester City went down to West Bromwich Albion 2-1 - this was after a lead early on in the game from a goal by Jo.

Chelsea are also out after a 4-3 defeat by Newcastle and Liverpool were humiliated by lowly Northampton Town , 2-2 the result and then exit via the penalty shootout 4-2.

No doubt the big clubs will have their excuses......

After suffering several years of traumas, the black and white blood in me can't believe a result like that against Chelsea.
