Five conclusions Carling Cup final

Posted by - March 2, 2009 - Conclusions, EFL Cup, Lists, Manchester United, Tottenham

1. The quintuple is still on for Manchester United then. It is a big ask, but then again they won this one without some of their biggest stars.

2. Ben Foster was immense. Please let him stay fit in the run-up to next year’s World Cup.

3. So David Bentley can hit a skip from a roof, but not the target from 12 yards.

4. A quote I hope to read from Harry Redknapp: “Well, I’ve said since I got here that we are short of a couple of penalty takers. The penalty takers I was left with when I took over, when we had only two points in the league, just aren’t up to scratch.”

5. Roman Pavlyuchenko may dream of playing for Manchester United, but on the basis of that performance he can dream on.
