Portsmouth party-poopers prompt priorities poser

April 7 2007

Portsmouth party-poopersSo the title race has been “blown wide open”. Ah well. Not much point having a six-point gap if you’re not going to use it.

It’s hardly surprising though. Last season United had a pretty dismal season, and yet, one Michael Carrick and a fit-again Paul Scholes later, and they’re leading the Premiership, in the semi-finals of the Cup and gunning for the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The simple fact is that the United squad isn’t strong enough to challenge for honours on three fronts. The subs bench boasts reliable reserves like John O’Shea and Darren Fletcher, but no-one who can come on and change the game single-handedly.

Every game between now and the end of the season is a must-win, and any United fan who thought they had an easy run-in might be forced to reconsider once away trips to Everton, City and Chelsea are taken into account.

It may be sacrilegious, but as a United fan I would sacrifice our participation in the Champions League if it would guarantee us the Premiership. Of course we want to win as many trophies as possible, but with the squad stretched as thinly as it is, the league has to be the priority.
