We MUST win this final, if for no other reason than to lose the "runner-up" tag we're increasingly becoming labelled with! It will be a HUGE monkey off the back of the team and of JK.
Interesting stat: the last time we won a trophy that we didn't win on penalties (excluding Community Shield)?
2003 League Cup 2-0 against Utd.
Since then the run of (cups, not league) wins & runners-up reads: -
2005 Won CL on pens
2006 Won FA cup on pens
2007 CL Runner-up
2012 Won League cup on pens
2016 Europa & League cup Runners-up
2018 CL Runners-up
Let's do what we've done the last couple of months and win this game in 90 mins, with no drama.
Let's SHUT the critics UP! Let's SHUT the f###ing BLUENOSES & the MANCS up who are living on Schadenfruede!
Let's SHUT the f###ing City fans up!!
Winning this will be catalyst for greater things to come, including finally ending our league title drought!
Let's just fire on all cylinders on June 1st, trust there are no bad decisions, injuries or luck.
All things being equal, we win by a couple of goals.
Let's do this! We NEED this!! We DESERVE this!!!
COME ON YOU MIGHTY REDS!!!
