Good afternoon Groovy Gang members and welcome to the brink of cup glory.
For your delectation might I present the Semi-Final draw numbers/teams;. 1 Tottenham Hotspur, 2 Manchester United, 3 Leicester City or Chelsea, 4 Wigan Athletic or Southampton. At time of blogging the selections containing an ‘or’, have yet to be concluded.
We’ve discussed the lack of motivation amongst the Premier League’s top boys in respect of this competition and that it all stems from the financials. The winners will make it through to the final on Saturday 19 May will pick up £900,000 and the losing semi-finalists will be awarded £450,000.
Pochettino has of course, spun this with the effortless finesse of those worldly souls that operate the Candy-floss machines at the fair. From just a few teaspoons of sugar are made eye popping replicas of Marge Simpson’s barnet. The boss said:
“But the moment you lift the trophy and then put it down, that disappears. You will be in the history but you cannot live in the past. When you win something it is like you have finished an amazing job. But the process is the most beautiful thing, no? When you arrive, you arrive. But then you need to be ready for the next challenge. If not, all that happiness will transform into sadness.”
This is spinning to unprecedented depths. Winning is secondary to Maurico’s mystical alchemy rowlocks. Normal fans want trophies, mate. Crack on.
