It`s been a strange week!
We`ve got through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and another resilient performance on the road has seen us cement our position in the top half of the table.
Elsewhere, those who, last season, attained to seek UEFA Cup glory found themselves desperately back-pedalling and fielding weakened sides as so-called fixture congestion hit.
Aston Villa travelled to Moscow without many regulars, much to the disappointment of their travelling support whilst Harry Redknapp juggled his side ahead of the UEFA and Carling Cup fixtures and ended up with sod-all in the way of victories and glory.
In fact, emphasising what a strange week it has been, our only qualifiers still in the UEFA Cup are Manchester City who, incidentally, only qualified through the 'Fair Play` league, a place which several of us still are unable to fathom out how we lost out to City on the final day of the season, conspiracy theories abound still!
Nevertheless, the UEFA Cup charade produced a great comment from Roy Hodgson this weekend with Gentleman Roy remarking,
"We dream of Europe but when teams get there they complain about fixture pile-ups."
"If Manchester City, Tottenham and Aston Villa, with all their resources, are struggling to cope with the UEFA Cup demands then God only knows how we would get on."
An interesting point but this supporter wouldn`t half mind finding out how we`d get on!
