Laursen Dreaming Of Lifting The Cup

Laursen Dreaming Of Lifting The Cup

Villa skipper Martin Laursen is looking to Wembley through the Carling Cup.

The man mountain told the official site:

'It's a great time to be captain. It's been super from the first time I did it. It's even more enjoyable when you are winning games. It means a lot to lead the team out. It's a great honour. Everything I am asked to do as a captain is a big honour. If we were to win the League Cup, I would lift up the trophy. When you're not captain, it doesn't even cross your mind, but when you are skipper, you do think about it. To win the trophy and lift it as captain would be fantastic. But let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.'

Adding about our opponents today: 'QPR are a team with a very good history in the game. They were a club I was aware of when I was growing up. They are a famous club and they are on the up at the moment. They have made a good start to the season and it's certainly not going to be easy.'

Already through to round four are:

Arsenal
Burnley
Leeds United
Rotherham United
Swansea City
Watford
Liverpool
Manchester United
Sunderland
Stoke

And playing tonight for a chance to join them:

Aston Villa v QPR
Blackburn v Everton
Brighton v Man City (round two, to face Derby in round three)
Ipswich v Wigan
Newcastle v Tottenham
Portsmouth v Chelsea

So who would you like to face in the next round? Rotherham would be an interesting one, nice to help get them some money into their cash strapped club.

Sadly one dream that isn't going to come to fruition this season Martin. Not to worry. The general consensus appears to be that we are now way too big to treat this competition seriously. That attitude, shared by many supporters, mostly no doubt those not in attendance last night, is worrying in the extreme.

Rotherham would have been nice in the next round Jonathan, haven't been to Millmoor in a while. As you say, we could have helped put a few much needed pennies into their coffers, and provided them with an easy route into the next round!
