Who Wants Another Carling?

Who Wants Another Carling?

So the young guns have smoothed their passage through to the last eight of the Carling Cup. As ever, Mister Stillman will be providing you with a sumptuous gateau of a match report, as ever drizzled with a rich sauce of his own stylish concoction.

Until then, let's peruse who we've been joined in the quarter finals by.

West Ham ensured their safe passage last night, with a late Carlton Cole goal putting the Irons through.

In tonight's other games, Liverpool survived an equaliser by Cardiff to retake the lead barely two minutes later, Steven Gerrard restoring Pool's one goal advantage.

At time of writing, Chelski scored a late leveller at home to Leicester, having gone 3-2 behind, Andriy Shevchenko restoring parity. He then went on to put the Chavs 4-3 ahead, which is how the game finished.

The Tiny Totts closed out the game against Blackpool 2-0. Can't be arsed to go into any more detail. It was Juande Ramos' first game in charge.

The Orcs of Bolton were drawing nil nil with Man City, the game looking like it was going into extra time, before Elano won the game with a late penalty. Micah Richards has been stretchered off the pitch though, with what looks like a serious injury. If it is, it'll be a big blow to the blue half on Manchester.

In surely what is the most intriguing of the fixtures tonight (after our own game), as results have unfurled themselves ,is the Luton vs Everton game. This game currently stands at nil nil also, and has gone into extra time. Tim Cahill (he of the crappest celebration in the prem), has given the Toffees the lead in this tie

Craig Hignett has tipped Blackburn to win the competition. I know Blackburn have their knockers, but Mark Hughes has assembled a very capable squad up at Ewood Park. Looking beyond the complete arsehole that is Lily Savage, players of the calibre of Roque Santa Cruz, Morten Gamst Pedersen and David Bentley would certainly see Rovers in with a shout of progressing to the very lattermost stages of the competition.

so the quarter final teams for the Carling Cup look like this:


West Ham



Tiny Totts


Man City

Luton / Everton (currently 0-1 in ET)

Yet again, another night to be proud of our youngsters -who is everyone reckoning we will get in the next round?

Yeah - a home game against any of them would be fine with me. We seem to have buried a few ghosts this season. There would be a comforting symmetry in beating Chelsea in the final.
