Gunners Bag WBA
The draw for the Third Round of the Carling Cup was made yesterday lunchtime and a pretty uninspiring draw for us in truth. The Cup is something of a lucky dip and I always pray for a lower division side away and a chance to visit a ground I've never been to. Call me crazy, but Doncaster Rovers away was one of my favourite journeys last year! Anyaway, I've been to the Hawthorns about a million times, I've even been there for A Carling Cup tie which we won 2-0. Anyway, it's a winnable game and, injury permitting, a chance to see the likes of Walcott, Denilson, Song and maybe a return to fitness of Clichy or Senderos? Anyway, bank on an upset somewhere in this round, Chesterfield have the taste of blood on their lips after eliminating Man City and get a home tie against a Premiership side low on confidence in West Ham. While our lasagne dodging neighbours get a trip to the MK Dons. The draw in full:
Wycombe Wanderers v. Doncaster Rovers
