Beat Chelsea then it’s an Inter or Schalke Semi


Former Manchester United manager Tommy Docherty once famously said that “If your name is on the Cup, nobody can take it away from you” and how right he was! While there are 37 other games to recover from a bad decision or an unfortunate incident in the Premier League, once a Cup game is lost, there is no opportunity for a comeback.

As a matter of fact, he was quick to come out with the expected after match bitter mutterings of 'that penalty was a joke' and 'it was never a red card'. Nothing unusual, it's what Scousers do best whenever they get beaten – which has become the norm this season. I fully understand that this is a Manchester United blog and what happens at Anfield should be none of our business BUT before I get accused of being 'obsessed' by Liverpool – another common Scouse boast, stay with me as I explain why there may well be a lesson for United in all of this.
