Jose to Spurs: Wembley sojourn won't save you

Adjust Comment Print

Manchester United and Tottenham will face-off at Wembley on Saturday evening as they battle for a place in the final of the FA Cup.

"We gave no chance to the opponents, which is what Manchester City did". He has 12 goals in 11 FA Cup games and has scored in every round this season.

Saturday's semi-final is hugely important for both clubs and their managers because this competition is their last chance of silverware this season, but their aspirations and ambitions are very different. They were really strong.

Writing in his column for the Mirror, he said: "Sorry, you can not be counted among Europe's elite if you have won only two trophies in 27 years".

Manchester United legend Andy Cole has said that the club must win the FA Cup this season.

In the Premier League they did not challenge for the title but if they finish second they can say they are the next best team after City, and the ones who are closest to them.

"There is no reason, having looked at United and Spurs this week, why we need to fear them".

The cup will keep them going of course, and obviously I am not saying they don't want to win it.

"I want to carry on the good momentum because I was unbeaten at Wembley with Arsenal and I want to do it with Chelsea too".

I remember being at Liverpool when we won the 2001 League Cup and stumbled over the line against Birmingham on penalties in the final.

"But if you don't, people will be talking about how they lost those games against West Brom and Spurs and then all the talks start about individuals". Where Spurs project an image of unity and togetherness - apart from when Harry Kane goes after Christian Eriksen's goals, of course - United are disjointed and disparate, a team of supremely talented individuals who grind and screech against each other on the pitch like oversized cogs in a faulty machine. His otherworldly ego has already begun to clank its chains in fury at the inadequate efforts of Paul Pogba, among others.

Yes, Tottenham might be lacking in the trophy department but the fact that years ago they were mere hopefuls for a Europa League spot demonstrates the stunning growth that they have undertaken.
