i think we are going there to bring the title home,

but i don't expect our first team to play, mybe fringe players and youth talents.

I'd expect a few senior players to go, maybe the likes of Hamann, Dudek and Riise. I'd say we will go in as favourites, but Sao Paolo if we get through will provide a stern test

id like to see the likes of atwini, roque, hobbs and all the youngsters we signed get a go...

also id want Potter to play and Kewell to see if there any left of him.

and id rather Carson plays ahead of Dudek, he needs to be developed.
