Question:

I was under the impression that we will not be involved in next season's community shield, because of our commitments in the Super Cup and World Club Championship, so are we or are we not play int he CS?
Charity Shield against Portsmouth at Wembley on the 10th of August.

Why would we not play in the Charity Shield? It's always the cup winners against the league winners. Why would that change once we've won a bit more.

Super Cup determines the best in Europe, and the world is obviously best in the world.

We're not going to duff one off for the other.

There's a first trip to Wembley for some ffs ;) :D

Because in 99 after we won the treble, we went to (i think) South Africa and played in the World Club Cup and didn't play in the charity shield, if my memory serves me correctly.
