World Club Championship

Obviously this would be a great one to win but Im not sure how serious
Fergie is taking it. Should he even be too bothered?
A few interesting quotes from him in this morning's paper:

Fergie said:
"I will have to be sensible when the Club World Championship comes around - and that means leaving players behind in England.

"It is flattering to be going to Japan, but it's not ideal because we will have games on December 26 and 28 when we get home, followed by the FA Cup.

"So I will have to be careful about the players I pick to go.

"Much will depend on the form of the team and the players I have available through injuries and suspensions, but it is possible that I will leave a lot of our more senior players behind.
"Jet-lag becomes a problem when you return from the Far East so I will have to manage it in the right way and do what is good for Manchester United."
We will need a bit of luck regarding injuries this season cos we have a
mountain of fixtures.

Where does this trophy rank for you? Is it the be all and end all?
Discuss.

Decent enough team there^^^
Bit surprised you rate the Carling cup higher than the Super Cup. The Super cup
is quite prestigous I would have thought? It would be a great trophy to have in
the cabinet, better imo than the Carling cup (kiddies cup).

Your right about that team that won the Copa Lib. They were the Greece of
that competition. They draw most of their games 0-0, won the odd one 1-0,
and won the final on peno's (I think). United would be far superior, even with
a 'reserve' team like the one you named above.

Its on just before Christmas I think. No idea what channel. It will be on something anyway or we can just stream it.
Good point with the Carling Cup.....it will be good to see the youngsters in action, especially the Brazilians.
