Is winning the Carling Cup a good enough measure of success for liverpool Fans or merely a stepping stone in the Kenny Dalglish Anfield revolution?

I don't care if it's a mickey mouse competition, silverware is silverware, it's been too long. i'd be delighted with both domestic cups and if we win them, all finance aside, it's much better than finishing as the fourth best team in england

@slufsar - maybe but our comeback will be 'all those years trying for a trophy and the best they could achieve was the one named after a pint of lager!!!' ;-)

@Hybridism "6 years without a trophy" is a bad sentence. Make you feel ill. We need the trophy just to stop people talking about it.

For a club of LFC's stature, the trophy is not a big thing, but in terms of building for the future it will be a great step towards former glory. The flipside is losing will likely cause them to rue the day they staked their all on a minor trophy and lost - remember Arsenal v Birmingham 2011?? Sad, very very sad.

It's only the Carling Cup and I think it will mean more to Cardiff. But if Liverpool was to win it, it's a trophy & a guaranteed place in the Europa League.

@leannthinkinfootball Brilliant topic by the way. I personally think Falglish is outdated and if he continues with his ways then I can't see Liverpool being at stronger than they are now. He bought very badly for the money he had and it's not paying off now at all. Only time will tell! But this is why football is funny, lIverpool could win both domestic cups this season! LOL

@Kenny Haha sorry only just started using this site. Been nice to have a break from the shortness of twitter and Facebook.

Silverware talks, if we win this means that we have secured Europa League. If we don't finish 5th then we have that to fall back on which means that we need to throw everything at the league after this game.

Would take 4th over it, but I think a title is important after 6 years of drought. We can still get 4th too.

This must win the prize for the longest title discussion ever! LOL +vote

The league cup is always treated as a secondary competition by the so called 'bigger' clubs. Liverpool fans will obviously take it but I bet most if not all would call finishing in the top 4 a better success than winning the league cup.

I would take it at least we wont be waiting as long as Arsenal for a trophy. If Arsenal won last year maybe Fab as Nasri would stay

As a Walsall fan, the Carling Cup is a mere pipe dream...now that's sad

No one takes the cup seriously until their team reaches the latter stages, It's a improvement on last year and i wouldn't say no to a cup but in all honesty i expect a lot more for the players that have been brought in.

It's not the long term goal of course, but everyone would obviously prefer to win it than not to win it

Nope...Noone takes the Carling cup seriously but by all means bask in it's limited glory!
