The FA Cup. Magic

Last updated : 01 January 2004 By Michael Morris
From a footballing point of view 2003 ended like a damp squib. Nothing to cheer at all in City's performaces since Dec 13th. 4 defeats, little passion and enough comedy defending to produce an embarrassing video.

I've been glum about it until now. The start of 2004 has brought out the philosophical romantic in me. What's happened has happened. We can't keep crying over past results but we look to start again and get the passion back.

What a great oportunity this weekend. We have the chance to get a result and boost the confidence of the team and hope to get back to winning ways.

I've seen the previews of the cup on Sky and on the BBC. It is the greatest domestic cup competition in the world and we should be going for it big time. We could be one game away from a tie with Man Utd or Arsenal.

Forget the last 4 games, get behind Cardiff City and start the season again. First up Sheff Utd, lets get ourselves into the 4th round draw.

Sheff Utd made the semi finals last season. Why can't we this season?

Ninian Park. 12 noon. Saturday.
