"Of all unimportant subjects, football is the most important" – Pope John Paul II

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle

…than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Even so, The Times today publishes 25 simple steps for United to reach heaven. Which in this context is to win five titles: the World Club Championship, the Carling Cup, the FA-cup, the Premier League and the Champions League. I still consider this to be just about impossible, but presented in this way it can look a deceptively simple task.

The WCC is already in the bag and both the Carling Cup and the PL look within reach. But United are still a very long way away from repeating last year’s CL triumph, with Inter Milan as the first, very difficult, obstacle. It’s a nice dream, though.

The first step on the ladder is tonight against Fulham, who have not yet won away from home in the league this season. Several United stars are expeted to return after being rested against Derby, such as Van der Sar, Vidic, Carrick, Scholes, Berbatov and Tevez. Rooney might be on the bench.

Please also note that the Bible doesn’t specifically mention rich football clubs.

  1. It will certainly require some luck on the way but United have the team to do it. The Champions League will be very hard to win and will come down to who plays well on the day.

    It’s a nice position to be in though eh 😉

    I read that pdf the other day and it certainly looks good. But, exactly as Bill states – now that we’re getting closer to the latter stages of the cups, it’s down to who plays well on the day when it really matters. We have some great games to look forward to!
