It might sound bitter, now that we have been knocked out by Manchester United, but does anyone care about the Carling Cup?
Arsene Wenger uses it as a youth cup tournament for Arsenal, while everyone except Mark Hughes and Manchester City made numerous changes to their starting line-ups this week.
While a cup run would have been nice, even we used it as a virtual friendly match, giving players a run out and using it as a fitness exercise for Kevin Foley, Jody Craddock, Michael Kightly and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.
The teams don’t care and neither do the fans with empty seats aplenty up and down the land.
But then it’s hardly surprising when it costs £41 to watch Sir Alex Ferguson make eleven changes. As that was the price Wolves fans were met with when getting their Old Trafford ticket.
£41 for a cup tournament that no-one is interested in until you reach the final and for a game that was on the telly!
But while there was a little over 1,500 Wolves fans in the ground, money wise and it was still a great draw for the Molineux accountants. A 50,000 plus Old Trafford crowd means around a £500,000 boost to the coffers.
