Man U in 1/4 finals, happy with that?

That'll do us, should be more than enough for Utd. Spurs in the final - roll-on!!

Thank fuck we didn't get a tough draw! 😁

That’s ok- we can take them!

Man Utd. HA! We will DESTROY them.

Possibly slightly overconfident? Nah!

If we get through this one and either City or Arsenal are going out, good chance this season.

No body worries me right now. Unusual feeling but most enjoyable.

Happy with that. Watching United so far they look awful when faced with an organised midfield.

Another big team will go with Arsenal v City.

This is a big game. We can be a bit dismissive of the League Cup but we need to win a trophy. Could be the start of big things... I've seen it happen before.

Good draw that. Should beat the Mancs, then Brentford in semis!

I'm more than happy with that. Glad we dodged Arsenal and City for now.

I feel confident as we matched up well the last two games, (denied a win by VAR), before we got the three amigos, or three musketeers in.

United fans moaning saying their Champions League draw was a fix, will be demanding an inquiry into this!

Not till December 21st. Could be a very Merry Christmas. Ho Ho !

United will also have CL group games to contend with in the next few weeks. The first group match is not until 20th October so very likely to finish week before we play them. They could be burnt out by then.
Will Mabon

No easy games now but we're as likely as anyone on this form.
Brian Williams

Now which set of supporters does that remind you of??? 🤔

Ron 8# think it will be Brentford we face in the final!

On one of tonight's Carabao cup games.
Watch the footage of young Willock scoring his penalty to win it for Arsenal.
He tries his best to do a Moise Kean after scoring but can't hold it and breaks into a huge smile as he walks away.

After what Palace did to them, I hold no fear. We have no Euro campaign to cause us problems, and by Dec, our new players will be that much more settled. Let's get to the final, and make it 3rd time lucky. . . . . . . happy days are here again
Stan Schofield

I really wasn't bothered who we drew, because the way we're playing, we look like we could go out and beat anyone and do it with some panache.
Gordon White

Bring it on. Looking forward to watching the game.

Nows the time for Everton, and Carlo, will make sure we stay on track.

Onwards Evertonians, and now to beat Brighton.

Tom Bowers

Chances were that we would have to beat one of the big names eventually but still would have preferred Stoke, Brentford or the Barcodes.
Tony Everan

We have the team to beat them, they’ll be gutted at the draw.
Alex Gray
33 Posted 01/10/2020 at 23:10:13
Decided to have a cheeky look on the Utd facebook page to see what the fan reaction to drawing us was. A lot of their fans currently fear us which speaks large volumes about how far we’ve come so far this season.

December is a long way away still and lots can change but I can’t remember such a strong start to a season for us!

Tony Cawson
34 Posted 01/10/2020 at 23:12:36
Fancy us here, no problem.
Is it just me enjoying the quiet side of TV football?
I even watched them bastards tonight and was quite calm!
Knew it was the crowd, and the er fans!

Peter#25, it was foretold in a piece on here just a month or so ago.

We are competitive in any match now so no team will look forward to playing us.

Jonathan Haddock #10. Agree!

PS you really should post on the Live Forum when we get into puns.

The semi final is two legs so not a bad draw at home.
Patrick McFarlane

The semi-final is a one-off game this season due to a congested fixture list.

Oh well even better Patrick.

Just off subject a mo and some budding posters, is there any talented song writers out there who fancy doing an updated version of the royal Blue Mersey song.

About time we had a revamped version of the song with a few new names added to the song instead of Limpar etc.

Pity its not next week and keep the winning streak going. A great September done and dusted now for a great October. Keep it going Blues ! COYBs.

No easy games as we enter the business end of this competition, but we have a genuine chance of ending the drought here.

To win it you need three wins. I would like to see Carlo field the best team available to him.

A few months now to let this fixture boil away in the background.
The clinical progression through the competition, the home draw for the quarter final and the sheer class of how we're playing has me excited. You can almost smell the silver polish, this is a great chance at winning a competition we've literally never won before.
What a start to the season it's been eh?
Derek Knox

Brent @37, he could come round and have a 'word' then he'd be up for Salt and Battery! 😛

Could be some interesting team selections for these games as they are only a couple of days before the Christmas fixture rush and 4 of the 8 teams will have had European group games in between.
Tony Abrahams

Brian@24, obviously the best fans in the world! The superior race, and a sense of entitlement, nobody does it better, (Empty stadiums!) don’t get me started on Liverpool mate, and now it seems their cousins up the East Lancashire Rd!

I don't fear them, but I do fear the refs' bias towards Man Utd. I don't need to speak about a legit goal that was disallowed because a player was on the ground. That's the kind of decision that can throw us out.

I wonder if something changed since? Was the ref punished? The VAR refs? The linesman? Who was accounted responsible for that?

To win a cup, you need to beat some really top teams and have a bit of luck. I'm not too fussed about the draw - but it's good to see Liverpool go out on a number of levels

I wonder if Solsjkaer will still be boss by the time we host United for this game? I suspect possibly not.
David Ellis

I feel like I did in 1985. I really don’t mind who we draw. I know they will not want to play us. To be fair I would be wary of City and LFC, And possibly Chelsea (2 of which are already out). But I think Man U and Arsenal are more on Tottenham level at the moment. And I don’t rate Ole as a manager.
Martin Reppion

David #55.

I don't fear any team at the moment either. What I do fear is that when the inevitable happens and we do lose a game, the negativity on here will surface.

Very few teams go through a season without a bad game or even a mini-slump. What matters now is that we have started this season better than any of us dreamed. We could have slipped up at palace but for a horrendous refereeing decision for once going our way. But now we know how good we can be, we have to keep positive and enjoy the ride.

At the start of the season, I'd have taken 6th place and a cup run (as a platform to build on). Now I am seeing silverware and glory. But whatever happens, this is the best ride since 1995. And we can beat anybody.

As the semi final is now only one leg, will it be a neutral venue, or just a case of first team out gets the home tie.

Sorry for jumping ahead of the quarter final draw.

Rob Halligan
58 Posted 02/10/2020 at 19:51:03
Brian, you are right, the first team drawn out in the semi-final gets to play at home.

If we win, Man City away it is then.

Talking of Utd is it coincidence that not buying their cast offs has seen an improvement in the team?

And as they no longer pose a threat to the RS they can go straight back on the "fuck off" list

I'm fine with Man U, better than Man C and Arsenal
