Carling Cup Draw

Comments (20)

Of the 6 teams left who do you want in the semi's and why? I'd favour Arsenal just because they play kids.

Same collection of "kids" who got to the Final last season? Be careful what you wish for!

The way we are playing we can potentially beat anyone. They are all good teams left. I’d love to beat Liverpool but then Id also like to beat them in the Final.

Methinks Spurs are the worst team of the pack. If we want the easiest route to the final, give me Spurs in current form.

But beating the RS or any other ’top four team’ is more fun.

I don’t care too much who we play against TBH. Bring on the games! COYB!

It?s not that I am a pessimist... far from it, but I would prefer not to get Liverpool in the Semi-Final just in case they beat us and robbed us of a Final place and, knowing their luck, they would be bound to get friend, Clottenberk, as referee. Don?t know who I would prefer really - maybe Man City if they get through.

An e-mail correspondent of mine sent me a message saying "Hope we get you in the Final" and I had great pleasure in e-mailing back and saying

"Hang on a minute, you?re not in the semi-final yet, matey"

Quite enjoyed being one up on them!!

I would not like to play Liverpool over 2 legs. I would prefer them in the final in a one off game.
However I think I might take Arsenal but I think Blackburn will beat them. For a semi-final match I would take Spurs, City or Rovers for certain.

No brainer for me, home draw against Balckburn, Man C or Spurs. I’d rather avoid Arenal, Liverpool or Chelsea.

Avoid the big four till the final, and then take our chances over one game!

Daft question - we want Liverpool in the final (but also be amusing if they don?t get that far). So lets get there first by getting Spurs or Man City, who we?ll should beat with ease, especially over 2 legs.

Liverpool, definately. We would beat them because we have more desire for this competition than them, they only care about te CL.

Arsenals kids are good, and have beaten us 3-1 two times in this competition before. The ’kids’ really go for it as they dont get too many games, besides I want Arsenal for the final. Liverpool would provide a great final also, in terms of passion, however Arsenal play the kind of football that we should be aiming for, if we are still playing as we are now in march it would be a great spectacle.

However, I dont really care who we play in the semis, were gonna beat them no matter what!

Come on you Blues!

Blackburn.

We’d beat them at Goodison and take absolutely thousands to Ewood.
