Twice more unto the breach, dear friends, twice more.

King Louis did it again. His extended and predictably crucial intervention against Boro has hopefully given him the confidence to turn his short cameos into longer and equally as fruitful stints on the pitch for the blues. It seems apparent that the lack of minutes on the pitch is down to mental angst rather than physical injuries - if he doesn't 'feel' 100% then the fans will be lucky to see him. It is not a physio he needs but a shoulder to cry on and a lucky mascot on his kit peg. The King Louis legacy is hopefully one that has just begun and has many matches to run.

Saha...It is not a physio he needs but a shoulder to cry on and a lucky mascot on his kit peg.

Now Louis has done his job against Boro, with the excellent Cahill winning us the game from midfield, we can now start to seriously consider our chances of winning the FA cup this year. Admittedly, some may say, those chances were dealt a blow with the draw we received - others may say we would have to beat the southern Mancs at some point to lift the cup anyway, so why not in the semi final?

What everyone can agree on is that the time has come for Moyes and his band of men to come of age and start their very own legacy. You can almost hear the investors shuffling into line and waiting to see what our club can achieve this season - if Mr Moyes can start this club on a sustainable path of silverware working within the limits he has then he deserves and will rightfully expect transfer money to ensure all his hard work is not undone. Everyone recognises there is unfinished business for this team, indeed the exceptional work undertaken to merely get 'close' to the money-laden clubs of the top heavy premier league will one day, it is hoped, be looked backed on as a prelude to a sustained period of success.

Some fans wonder if Moyes has taken us as far as he can, this is an attitude that will be laughed about in the same way as the 'Kendall Out' campaign all those years ago. My main worry is the line of thought that this club has taken Moyes as far as it can. If his hard work doesn't start to bear fruit soon, if investment isn't forthcoming this summer and if we don't get a little bit of luck in the cup this year then will he crave new challenges elsewhere?

Thankfully he knows the hard work has only just begun and this is the chance for him to show how to build a massive club up from the doldrums into a trophy winning fighting machine, creating a dynasty few managers can even dream of.

We have a huge game on 19th April, one that will shape our future and is without question more important to us than it is to the Mancs.

We have a huge game on 19th April, one that will shape our future and is without question more important to us than it is to the Mancs - who have enough trophy chances to keep them amused (and hopefully distracted). The Wembley pitch is crying out for The Best Little Spaniard to orchestrate one of his magical shows, his absence throws responsibility elsewhere and we need someone (anyone!) to take the game by the scruff of the neck - will the real Fellaini please stand up and be our talisman as Cahill can't do it all on his own, even though it seems that way on occasions.

When we despatch the Champions League distracted Mancs then every single fan, player and staff member will have the chance to drag this club back into the spotlight with a collective final fight at the end of May. Barring injuries to anymore key players we all know we can do it and we all know we need to do it.

See you down Wembley way, I'll be the one congratulating the Hull fans for a job well done the day before - surely we aren't due that much luck?!
