Tomorrow’s game against Manchester United in the FA Cup is a biggie. In fact, it doesn’t get bigger than this, does it?
As it is a high profile game what should we expect from Fergie’s Red Devils then?
Collins and co will have to pull on their best defensive boots tomorrow as Van Persie will be out trying to snatch a brace. I think the Hammers defense will be up to the task and Ialso think that the Manc frontline won’t pose too problems for the West Ham backline if they stay focussed.
Focus will be the key in this FA Cup clash and the operative word, too. Focus is what will bring home the bacon tomorrow at the Boleyn Ground and focus is what will keep the Red Devils from running riot. We all know far too well the Manc’s ability to stick the winner in on minute 92 – it’s happened to all the top clubs far too often so 100% focus to the end of the match is highly imperative.
Make no mistake though, Manchester United are quick and will make us pay dearly on the break. Nolan will have to be captain fantastic tomorrow and lead from the front. We have to bring it and show them that the Irons are not afraid. Chances must not go begging like Vaz Té’s the other day – whether we are winning or not.
One of the new faces for tomorrow’s clash must be Joe Cole and I’m sure he’ll be up to the challenge. Carlton Cole must also make his chances count. It’s not enough to perform like a superstar on the odd occasion – we need him at his very best for tomorrow’s FA Cup clash and I’m confident he will deliver the goods.
It will be one fabulous game tomorrow and a chance to show the big guns that we mean business. COYI!
