I only managed to catch the highlights from last night’s Carling Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Man City, but it looked like a cracking game. As a United fan, neither team winning was ideal for me so I guess a 2-2 draw was about right! Liverpool obviously go through on aggregate and good luck to them – we may be rivals in theory but… well, it’s only football at the end of the day! Looking forward to our FA Cup game with them on Saturday though – and I hope we stuff them!
I’ve invited quite a few people round to watch the game at mine so I think it’s going to be quite a party – a 12.45 kick off means it could be a long day too as I expect we’ll head into Manchester afterwards for a few beers around the bars. That’s if we win anyway – some of the lads get really depressed when we lose big games and the party spirit really goes out of them. I can understand why but I never let it affect me that much; I’d rather still go out and enjoy myself than sit at home moping!
I managed to go and look at that Mazda 5 yesterday and I must say I really liked it. They’re really well made cars and it’s a good size for me – definitely given me something to think about. Anyway, just one more day of work this week – finishing a band’s demo off tomorrow – then the big FA Cup weekend. Here’s a little reminder of some United magic to get me in the mood – a classic Bryan Robson goal against Liverpool in the 1985 FA Cup:
