If we manage to overcome Arsenal and reach May’s FA Cup Final and Liverpool, as expected, beat Wycombe in the other semi-final then we will be guaranteed a place in the UEFA Cup next season. Liverpool have already qualified by virtue of winning the Worthington Cup.
“I’m thankful we’re in the semi-final,” said Glenn. “We could have just been seeing out the season and getting to know the players.
“There is an added incentive that we could qualify for Europe as well and we’ve had some wonderful European nights at the club.
“If we win it, even if we don’t and results go the right way, we could qualify which then gives us the opportunity to entice players that we might look at in the summer.
“So it’s not just about a semi-final, not just about playing Arsenal, there are a lot of implications on this game for the club.”
Glenn Hoddle insists the incentive of bringing the glory, glory European nights back to the Lane can drive us to success in Sunday’s FA Cup Final.
