Carling Cup Semi-Final Draw Announced

carling-cup.jpgThe draw for the semi-finals of the 2008/2009 Carling Cup have been announced. Current holders Tottenham Hotspur will take on Burnley, while Manchester United faces Derby County.

The semi-finals will be a two leg affair. The first leg will be played on January 5th and the return leg on the 19th.

So I guess it’ll be an all Championship final then? Just kidding. But it makes you wonder whether Alex Ferguson should gamble and try to play his reserve side and more of his youngsters who get few chances, if any, to play for United. What would you do if you were Fergie? Gamble with the kids or let the pros coast to victory to ensure United gets a decent chance at the first piece of silverware this season?
