Another home tie, can't be a bad thing.

Thing is we are going to come up against a good team at some stage in the tourni, why not now?

We beat them last season at home so we can do it again.

It probably sounds bizarre, but I am happier playing a top premiership side than a lower league side. Everton tend to rise to games and I fancy our current form against Arsenal, but the next game will be an indication I guess....

anyway, copied from my own website, here are the other fixtures...

All fixtures to be played week commencing Monday 6th November 2006

Everton v Arsenal

Yeah, its about this round that clubs start thinking "hey we can win this" so unless they have a Euro game a couple of days either side, i dont envisage reserve teams or youth teams playing.
Think it will still be a tough one so lets hope we can hit top form.

Could have been better and could have been worse

sounds like a potential embarrassing banana skin to me, would rather have had watford, newcastle, villa at home than arsenal reserves. they are a unknown quantity and look v v good but we will be expected to win and that might go against us. cant ask more than a home tie i guess, hopefully we wont give them a chance to prove themselves.

1st November (Wed) Champions League - CSKA Moscow (home)

5th November (Sun) Barclays Premiership - West Ham United (away)

7/8th November (Tue/wed)* Carling Cup - Everton (away)
(*This game will be played on either 7th or 8th November)


12th November (Sun) Barclays Premiership - Liverpool (home)

^^^There the fixtures Arsenal have^^^

4 games in 12 days, 2 big games as well (CSKA moscow and Liverpool) Cant see them putting out a full side when they have liverpool next game, also it would be perfect to rest some players after just playin CSKA and West Ham.

We dont normally get to the forth round, as mac said, nothing is impossible. Well play their reserves anyway

We should win it

Prices are 20 adults, 10 kids, chuffed they've kept the lower prices

Good to see the Adult prices kept low but I wish they'd put the child prices up. Was surrounded by a thousand little ninjas on Tuesday screaming abuse at the Luton fans!! You couldn't leave yer seat for a piss without one of them trying to claim it!

Hate (honestly) to correct you Zed but it was 7-0 at Highbury...4-1 at Goodison on the first day of the season, the reason we finished with a negative goal difference :( .

Don't think there's much doubt though that even though we finished fourth that season the current team is potentially far superior.

20 and 10 eh? I feel some wife buttering-up coming on ;) .
