I always find it pleasing when a club treats the Carling Cup with respect!

With only three domestic competitions to play in it seems madness for a club, of our stature, to treat one with contempt.

Therefore it was pleasing to see that Mark Hughes chose as near to a full starting eleven as he could, with the only exception being the resting Paul Konchesky (Liverpool bound?) and giving young Matt Briggs a chance to show what he could do.

After the empathic 6-0 win, Mark had this to say about a decent nights work,

“I thought it was a great performance, outstanding goals, great finishes and progressive play.”

“Six goals just seems to be the common thing at the moment I don`t know why. But in fairness to Port Vale they tried to play. We just had too much quality for them so it was always going to be difficult.”

“I didn`t want to make too many changes – it`s not the time of the year to rest players.”


Now whether that last line is 100% true or whether Mark has decided that the Carling Cup is one trophy we can realistically target, I`ll leave you to muse over!

  • Great win….the lad briggs played well….one for the future….man u furure? Him and smalling together for united and england…i’m down the bookies with a tenner on that to happen ha ha

  • I won’t read too much into the win. 6-0 is great under any circumstances, but it’s what you’d expect from a full-blooded, first team Premier League side. Still, we’ve struggled with these types in the past, so I’m hoping we’re seeing a new era of professionalism under Hughes. Same result against Blackpool, please!

  • GREAT RESULT!!!
    Hope for the rest of the season the team can have the same spirit of play every week. And no injuries to the players…. not a bad one if there’s going to be injuries though.
    It is really too bad I can not watch it. Tried to find the online live streaming but no site were broadcasting it. D*MN!!
    Guess I’ll just be watching the goals replay then on the web.

  • Even in the highlights you can see just how good we were ameri. I know it’s lower class opposition but I’ve never seen such fluent football at the Cottage. It makes you realise just how cagey Roy was…
