When I looked at the two lineups before the game last night, I already knew the result.
It is clear that Nicol places the value of this tournament very low on his list of priorities throughout the season. As much as the nostalgia of this tournament tries to grab at its viewers, it never gains any momentum. Even the Cup holders couldn't be bothered to play a first team in a semifinal, against a potent DCU side.
So my question is, if the Revs don't care about this cup, then why should we?
