The Gunners have been handed a third sucessive away tie in the Carling Cup this season and will travel to Anfield in the plum tie of the round

Wenger’s kids will travel to Liverpool whilst it is more than likely that Benitez will once again field a strong side.

The Tiny Totts have once again drawn a lower league side, yet will still claim they are a side on the up should they reach the semi’s 😛

Draw in full:-

Tottenham Hotspur v Southend United
Liverpool v Arsenal
Newcastle United v Chelsea
Charlton Athletic v Wycombe Wanderers.

  • We will probably field a young side too but why are we freakin away again? I wanted at least one game at home in the carling cup.

  • Absolute rubbish. Yet another day off work for yet another ground I’ve been to a hundred times. Our last four domestic cup draws have been away at Bolton, WBA, Everton and Liverpool. All boring draws far away at places we have lost recently. Magic of the cup my arse!

  • Too right! This one probably means I can’t go to Porto, hence my upset. Given that we have away games at Wigan, Porto and now Liverpool in consecutive midweeks in december- well I don’t have to tell you how hard it is going to be to get that little lot off work!!! Besides, I really think these kids deserve to play in front of 60,000…. then again, Ashburton would probably turn up twenty minutes late, boo them off the pitch for only winning 2-0 and then leave thirty minutes before the end. Still, would Wycombe away have been so difficult?

  • Bit harsh, some supporters do need to improve but the grove is still fantastic. Why were we drawn away again though, thats so annoying.

  • So it appears the only way we will get a home tie this season is if we get through to the semi’s and have to play home and away!!

  • Ahhh, but here is the wonderful eccentricity of the football fan. It’s been so long since I’ve missed a domestic game (cup and league), that I just HAVE to keep that run going. Whereas, I’ve missed the odd European fixture in the last five years. Obviously Porto and Portugal is a more attractive fixture, but it’s been too long to blot my copybook now.

  • interesting tie, my money would be on Liverpool at home, they are soooooooooo defensive it makes them difficult to break down.

  • But it you rid yourself of this albatross now (because it will end at some point) then you won’t risk missing excellent trips to great countries in the future. Imagine having to miss Barca at the Nou Camp to see Arsenal v Bradford at Valley Parade?!?

  • im a bit gutted,14 different combinations and the two i definately didnt want was away to newcastle and away to liverpool,coz its such a drag getting there n back,it would have been nice to get a home cup game for a change.anyway all together now….in your liverpool slums…

  • i wanted to take the kids to fulham and i realised its one of the few grounds i have visited in the capital, yet its an evening game so thats that in the can, hopefully watford on boxing day, if i can get a ticket.
