If wishful thinking ever had a chance of coming true, Wales will recall Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs to play for his country in the qualifying matches for Euro 2012. It’s a huge call after the Welsh wizard announced his retirement from international football in 2007 but that reality has not stopped people like former Wales boss Terry Yorath saying that “The first available chance that John Toshak has he should be on the phone to Ryan and get him back into Welsh football.”
Ho Hum, another season, another trophy! Manchester United fans may well get that feeling at times. No, the Carling Cup is not the most glamorous competition in world football but hey, a trophy is still a trophy especially when it’s another step in the race to overtake fierce rivals Liverpool as the most decorated club in English football.
Think about it, a total of 26 honours collected in the 24 years since Sir Alex Ferguson walked through the Old Trafford gates in November 1986. That’s half of all the trophies won by the club since joining the Football League!
So the question is when will enough be enough? When will the hunger for success come to an end?
