Young Echos Season Aims

Young Echos Season Aims

Luke Young has said that although Villa are striving for a Champions League Cup place for next season, the Carling Cup is a nice safety net if we lift it.

Speaking to ESPN Young said that he would dearly love to appear in a Cup Final after missing out when Spurs beat Leicester in the 1999 competition, but for the club being able to use the Carling Cup as a back door, emergency entry into Europe next season would be a great boost of confidence for the lads and help take some pressure off as the end of the season approaches.

'Our main priority is trying to get into the Champions League. The Carling Cup can be another route into Europe.'

As for his own experiences of Cup Finals he takes a trip down memory lane and adds:

'It wasn't so much missing out, I was just pleased to be there. I had only played 10-12 games for Spurs so it was all new and exciting.

'I didn't realise it would take 10 years to get there again.'

If Young needed firing up the Blackburn game, methinks that'll do it.

Yup, I'm started to get excited about tonight now. Ahhh to dream.

I did score the winning goal in a Cup Final once, but I suppose it's sad to admit you add yourself as a player in computer games isn't it.

Im with you Vital, nothing wrong with taking satisfaction from computer games - developing myself into a great on FIFA takes a lot of hard work and dedication so i think it is fair enough to be chuffed!!!

I'd take the Carling Cup over 4th place any day of the week. Success should be measured on trophies, not finishing 4th in the League
