Carling Cup: Liverpool v Arsenal

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 :P

Draw in full:-

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

You can only beat the sides that the draw puts in front of you
Sir_Harry
Yes but you don't have to brag when you win ;)
Rocky7
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.
gunner-minesh
Don't recall any braging about the Port Vale victory
Sir_Harry
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!
Little Dutch
I feel for you LD I really do. So many trips to see the Arsenal, must be really painful for you!!!
Rocky7
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?
Little Dutch
Bit harsh, some supporters do need to improve but the grove is still fantastic. Why were we drawn away again though, thats so annoying.
gunner-minesh
Then dont go to Anfield and go to Porto. Easy decision!
Rocky7
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!!
Rocky7
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.
Little Dutch
Settling in nicely to the Grove then Dutchie!
HATEtheGOONS
interesting tie, my money would be on Liverpool at home, they are soooooooooo defensive it makes them difficult to break down.
The Fear
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?!?
Rocky7
Only the grave will end it!!!!!!!
Little Dutch
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...
fran merida
That's a bit cheeky,there slums are no different to your caravan sites!
HATEtheGOONS
Another home win for the Mighty Reds to look forward. :)
bring back kenny
2-0 to us. Gerrard and Kuyt!
Aamir
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.
PUREGOLD
Rocky and Little Dutch, I was under the impression that it's difficult to get tickets, particularly to home games, as there is very high demand. How are you able to get tickets so consistently to not miss a domestic game for so long? I'm coming to the UK next year and hope to get to as many games as possible, and need the inside info!
JakeB
LD is a season ticket holder and I'm a member of a supporters club who run a great ship and offer the chance to get to almost every game as long as you keep your membership up!!!
Rocky7
And the obsession with Tottenham continues!
Cravens
Yeah, I'm also on the away ticket scheme, which is an away season ticket. They send me a ticket and take the money direct debit. There's a woman called Jill who does great work liasing with supporters clubs here and abroad, she likes to make sure as many people can get to games as possible.
Little Dutch
see you in the semi's!!!
