Boss - Arsenal Favourites But Blues Could Do It.

Boss - Arsenal Favourites But Blues Could Do It.

Birmingham manager Alex McLeish insists that the favourites to win the Carling Cup are Arsenal, but that doesn`t mean that Blues cannot lift the trophy.

Birmingham saw off Villa to reach the semi final where they will meet West Ham United in a two legged affair.

Arsenal have to face Ipswich from the Championship so it stands to reason that they should be everyone`s favourite to grab success at Wembley, but Blues have been installed as second favourites to do it.

'I am sure Arsenal are favourites but every team has got to believe,' said McLeish.

'You saw the Ipswich result against West Brom, and it shows that can happen.

'We turned the belief into reality by beating Villa.

'Can we go all the way? Why not? We are not favourites. Arsenal should on paper win it, but we know what can happen in cup football.'

who wants the bloody world cup....with all the face painted tarquins and vindaloo singing morons that go with it. Last night was what football is all about not facking vuvuzelas and fancy dress. I sincerely hope that a few countries led by us get together and form a new organisation that is not controlled by corrupt *****s like Blatter. A few calls to a few FA's around the world would f-ck FIFA off pretty damn sharpish and we would have a proper 16 team world cup with the best 16 teams not politically/geographically motivated political correctness because that is exactly what FIFA have just done. If what happened at St Andrews last night played a part in FIFA's decision then I applaud those involved. Football in England needs to get back to its roots, a working class game for working class blokes to let off a bit of steam and tension after a long week at work.
