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?

"Arsenal is becoming more brazilian than french." What? Is that suppose to insult the French? If so, that's surprising from you, kev. Besides, what wrong playing like the French? In the past decade, they made it into two World Cup finals, they won it once and also won Euro and they have talented players that don't cost a bundle like English players.

Eeer, BMF, I meant that Arsenal was full of french players that were the stars. I'm just saying that now it's becoming more brazilian (i.e with more brazilians) than french.

You are entitled to your opinion, kev, but, both Gilberto and Denilson are not the traditional Brazilian players with all the flair like you see with Ronaldinho or Robinho. Does not bother me, as they are still excellent players and gets the job done. While we are talking about Gilberto, I just like to say this, I want Gilberto to retire at Arsenal! He's a good role-model for the youngsters and he doesn't scowls at them for not passing the ball to him like Henry does. Yes, Henry is a legend to us Arsenal fans but he does do that.

Can't blame Keano if he wants to buy or loan our youngsters. Does anyone think Eduardo should start ahead of Adebayor in the game against Man Utd? I know, it's only Sheff Utd (no offense to Utd fans) but if Adebayor had the same chances as Dudu had on that match, he would probably fluff those chances, especially, when Ade's confidence in front of goal isn't at its highest recently.

Cahill's a legend, and his celebration started out of freindship and fitness training with an Aussie boxer, Anthony Munidine. You want to see something funny he does, you should see his Weatbix ads.

Great performance from the youngsters. I took special pleasure in seeing the third goal deflect off Chris Moragn, *****er that he is, after his going on about "physical football" in the press (like punching someone in the ribs and getting a 3 match ban has anything to do with physical football - it's just cheating you ****!).

I am fast enjoying and looking forward to our games in the Carling Cup as much as the other competitions! Agree with the comments about Diarra, he looked awesome and I even think he would be excellent in the centre mid position for the Man Utd game. Felt that Bendtner was good, but was trying to do team play more often than needed, he should have been more selfish in certain situations. I'm convinced Eduardo is going to be an absolute star once he adapts to the English league.

According to the commentary last night Morgan is just an 'old fashioned defender' - a cliched euphemism if ever there was one. Maybe I am just sensitive to the actions of this neanderthal but if you watch him after Eduardo put his second goal away you can't help feeling that he clattered into Eduardo on purpose for daring to make him look the fool that he is.

What a good game that was, an absolute pleasure to watch. Control of the game after about 7 mins, and we never let it go. A very good finish from Dudu, and I thought Diarra had an excellent game. We never looked like losing this one.
