Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
I hear that Rashford played well. Good to see one of the best players in the country finally let off the leash.

You can criticise the managers of the top teams for fielding weak line-ups in these second-tier cup competitions. But in the Anfield game the ploy worked a treat. Liverpool's final lineup tonight contained five teenagers and just two players over 24. In addition, their star big hitters weren't even on the bench! The same couldn't be said for Arsenal, but dammit, who cares, what a great match. None of that Pep tiki-takka stuff. Know what I mean, 'arry?
