I think a UEFA Cup berth is very much in our own destiny. The places from 3rd to as well down as 12th are wide open. Sound investment come January and some O'Neill patented magic in the transfer market and we stand an excellent chance. The 3rd round tie is hard for us but unlike in previous seasons we will have a team at Old Trafford who are prepared to and able to compete.

No shame if we get beat, plus a nice little earner with half the gate and tv money, personaly i think we could do this, id rather be tne underdogs anyday. I see Chelski used the heated ball again.

Let's not be too disheartened with the draw. Come Jan. 1st Randy's cheque book will be open for business and by the 7th we'll have a few new additions to the squad. Man Utd should be quaking in their boots!

I agree with Jonah if we can draw at old trafford there is a chance we can beat them at Villa Park as long as the match dont go to penalties

What's to say we can't beat them up there? It'll be tough, but they aren't invincible and we're about due a win at Old Trafford. Wouldn't have given us a hope last season, but no reason why we can't go there and nick it

It could have been a lot tougher draw of course. Manchester City at home for example.
