Would you trade?
I have just watched an interview with Jamie Ashdown on pfcTV, one where he confirmed that he has been seeking a loan move away but had not got it...
Among many things, one question put to him was 'would we swap the 3 wins that we have had in the league cup so far for 3 wins in the league?'
If we did this it would see us with an extra 9pts of course, thus taking our tally onto 13pts in total for the season and that would see us out of the relegation zone.
He said that he knows how much the cup means to the fans but ultimately he probably would opt for the extra 9pts...
It is a tough one, premier league survival is probably the most important thing as I fear for the consequences of relegation to be honest as I am not convinced that it will be 'as easy' as some might think, that said you cannot beat the cup can you, and as far as I am concerned as much as the league cup is viewed as a 'Mickey Mouse' one these days, if this was offered to me now I would be delighted to accept it!
Would I trade the 3 cup wins for 3 league wins though?
Now that is a toughish one...
All in all, as much as I do want to stay up and think we need to, like I said above, I am not sure I would as I still have dreams of seeing us at Wembley again trying to win another piece of domestic silverware, which would of course complete the set for us as we have the league and FA cup already secured, more than once, so lets add the league cup to this!
That said though we have some tasty sides left in the draw that we could face so we need to be at our very best for 'cup glory'... But I keep telling anyone that will listen that I think we will win the league cup this season!
So, what about you? Would you trade the 3 cup wins so far for 3 league wins and an extra 9pts to our tally at the moment?
