I think at this moment in time is the best position i've know man utd to be in.

Top of Prem (1 game in hand)
Carling Cup Final
Champions League - last 16
FA Cup - last 32 with home tie in next round

Added to what we have already won

Community Shield
World Club Cup

I know we have a few injures but i think United can at least win 2 (probably the 1st 2).

We are in a fantastic position, and if we were offered this position at the beginning of the season I'm sure we'd all have taken it.

As for the trophies left, I think we'll win the League and possibly the Carling Cup. We are capable of winning the FA Cup and the Champions League (I'm talking as individual trophies here) but there is a lot of luck involved with both so those are too hard to call.

I know there have been calls that we can win the Quad, but imo that's near impossible.

Nothing to complain about at this stage of the season except for the damned injuries that seem to have started its own run recently. It is a major concern as we all learnt from the past how teams can so easily crumble when struck by unexpected and nagging injuries. But if we have to do it the hard way with this onslaught of injuries, we do have a natural advantage in such circumstance. ;)

I agree we should wrap up the league and the mickey mouse cup. The FA Cup would be tricky but the back-to-back retention of CL would be unprecedented. The latter would really need one kind of luck and for our key players to return sooner; mutually inclusive.

The Premier League and Carling Cup is ours to throw away, however the FA Cup is possible too, we should see off a pretty lame Inter Milan if we play attaking football, but Barca have to be favourites for the Champions League.

Tbh, I'm not very confident about our chances against Inter either at the moment. We're not playing as well as we can.

However, there's still over a month until we play Inter so perhaps we'll have improved by then.

Obviously we have a great chance of winning the Carling Cup now we're in the final and it's always good to be in pole position in the Premier League.

There's still a long way to go in the FA Cup though and all the big guns are still in it.

I'm not so worried about inter, althouh they will provide a stern test, but even if we get by inter there's still Barcelona who are stronger than last season and in top gear.

On the other fronts, I'm allowing myself to be quietly optimistic.

We are in a very good position on all fronts, but if we win the league, I wouldn't mind missing out on any of the other trophies.

It would be great to just finally pull level with Liverpool give them one less thing to sing about on leagues. I honestly believe we could produce another treble maybe in four trophies. we have teh squad, even after the injuries to do it.

I would like that next Prem Title so them scousers Tw*tterpool don't have that privilidge of most League titles anymore, so the prem would do me just fine. I am optimistic though and I believe at least 3 trophies is a big possibility. The ECL, EPL and Carling cup would be unreal.

Agree about Inter, we are clearly better than them, so i would exspect us to pull through this tie. Inter got beat 3-1 last weekend too. Barca are the worrying team in the CL.

And yeah very true, i'll be happy WHEN (not if;) ) we win the league and equal the scum and hopefully finally shutting them up.
