How come we never get anyone like Hull City in the cups?
Rocky7
whatever will be will be, Martins will score against us and we'll buy the fecker in Jan!
nikolaijns
I know its a joke Niko but we aint going to sign Martins. Also Newcastle will be trying to win and oir younglings wont be undervalued either... :(
Goofle
Blackpool vs Southend - what a waste! so much potential there.
AFC85Lew
I've been praying for an away trip to Blackpool for years. God damn it.
Rocky7
The spuds have an interesting draw. Mido`s revenge on the cards. As for the Magpies we`ll let the kids do there thing I guess.
HerbertChapman
An Alliadiere hat trick would be better LOL.
HerbertChapman
Good to have a home game, it can only benefit the reserves team which will line up against Newcastle. Should be a good game and I'm hoping the Arsenal kids go one better this season.
prits
our first round and we're already playing Newcastle. It's just so typical. And Chavs get hull they are always so darn lucky
ArsenalRob
thats unfair why Newcastle? but i've got faith in our team :(
Babeasta
Would have loved a Cypriot team in CL draw (ala spuds) would be a nice get together in the sun for you guys. Me I`m already here... raises large pint and salutes my fellow Goons.
HerbertChapman
You're in Cyprus HC? I was there a couple of years ago.....it's bloody hot.
Rocky7
Although being far away Rocky, I never miss a game here ever. Johnny`s bar in Limassol is tops for the footie with 7 screens good banter and cheap wonderful beer! ... And yes its melting here! cradled over a PC in nothing but your underwear on. LOL
HerbertChapman
Yeah I seem to remember watching some very questionable football channels and movies when I stayed in Aiya Napa. And you don't have to be abroad to sit round posting in your undercrackers dude ;)
Rocky7
Nah your right Rocky! (whips off his draws and prances around ) Freedom................. :)
HerbertChapman
"How come we never get anyone like Hull City in the cups?"You got Diarra , rocky, stop crying.
