    What do you think the top clubs should be concentrating on? Winning domestically, or winning in Europe?

    I think they are too focused on the UEFA cup and Champeens leauge.

    UEFA cup rules

    I suppose it depends on how well a club is doing in the prem'ship as to whether or not they concentrate on europe

    Liverpool look to have done fairly good out of the cup draw

    Their bread is buttered at home. first Premiership, then FA Cup, then Champions League/UEFA.

    Pity ManUre will lose all three :D

    Porto should win the tie on aggregate.

    I'll be suprised if that happens at Old Trafford, if they do they will have reached a new level of suckitude.

    If Silvestre is back the odds improve for MU.

    I think he is back from injury, I read it in the paper. Although so is Garry Nevile, who is 'awesome'

    well there is more money in the international competitions that there is in a domestic competition. That pleases the fans, the players and the board. A prolific european run will raise the profile of the club internationally attracting foriegn investment from companies and other clubs wishing to deal with you. Moral is increased and clubs tend to do better at home (financially) when they are still in europe...people want to come and see the team play more.

    Heh, it would be funny if Man U won the cup and Arsenal won the Leauge. Gotta watch the match tonight, Fergie was bashing the porto manager for his diving players and goalkeeper.

    Man U Arsenal should have been the cup final .

    I think it is just rewards for MU. How many times have they scored in the last minute to win a tie. I'm glad Howard messed up too. That should shut everyone's yapper; he is an average GK.

    Man U 1 Man City 4

    Well the season is really falling apart for Fergie. That Arsenal game in two weeks in a must win now. ManU's defence sucks.

    Jeebus! That sucks and/or blows. Mind you Arsenal went all crappy when they lost Sol Cambell last season and that Cygan Bloke just couldn't cut it.

    On paper there was/is one.

    Their job is to send out letters reminding you to renew your PO box subscription. And to lose things in the post.

    Shame. I feel sorry for Ranieri. I mean, what do they expect of the guy? I reckon Ancelotti replaces him.
