So We Get...

Recommended Posts

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.

 

NIL SATIS NISI OPTIMUM

 

Come on you blues :)

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...

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.

Didn't we go out to an understrengh Arsenal side a couple of seasons ago to a team that had an average age of about 19.

 

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.

Nice post from Adam, good point from Mark.

 

This is well do-able, we are a better side than we were last year.

Yes we did, it was 3-1, the same season they beat us 7 -1 as well

 

 

the point is once again the carling cup has handed us an impossible 4th round tie AGAIN! :angry:

 

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 ;) .
