'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Does anyone care about the Carling Cup?

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.
