'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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?

hopefully we`ll get a home game....
Another Chelsea x Arsenal final perhaps?
if you get there, Kevster ;) »»Arsene Knows««
don't take it for 'Granted' (boom boom) »»Arsene Knows««
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.
Bring on the Spuds again!
lol. Wingston, doodoo finally scored a couple eh? Arsenal is becoming more brazilian than french.Maybe your players can arrange free tickets to you lot for the 014BR WC ?
more good news from the young guns, Vela scored tonite in the Osasuna 's 3-0 win over Real Betis.
that'd be nice, Kev - all round yours for beers? »»Arsene Knows««
Carlos Vela scored today on his first start of Osasuna today. Good day for all gooners then.
excellent news, fcd! Folks, yes a home tie next time out would be nice, i love the chance to see the potential next line of 'super super' class talent to come off the Arsenal conveyor belt... »»Arsene Knows««
Dang you fcdmatthew you beat me to the punch ;)
Oh, your coin is worth almost 4x as much as mine, and I'm in charge of payin? With 5 pounds you can get as drunk as george best during a happy hour.
think we will get chelsea at home next. whens the draw?
Kev - I like it when you're in a chipper mood!! Makes a change from wind up mode eh!!
Lil bit, it's halloween isn't it? A bit ******y me being kind. lol. Wind up mode sometimes can tire one from it
A Dudu double! This guy will adapt to the Premiership faster than Sheva and he didn't cost Arsenal a fortune!
"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.
You don't need all the flair to be a star. Look at Dunga! He was a star.
tha's all for today folks. To my rest, I shall go.
Bye, kev. I hope it will be Arsenal vs Chelsea on the Carling Cup final. Where we beat Spurs on the semi-finals, while your guys beat Liverpool, sounds good?
triny totts
if there is a concern about this game its the prying eyes of roy keane. God knows what the likes of bendtner could do for sunderland in ther relegation battle
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.

Cool,Confident and Composed performance by the young guns. I must say Diarra was mighty impressive at RB.
i must say i agree, he ******ing every where. it looked like he was playing in midfield instead of RB.
Youngest in Charge

I hope we get the easiest possible draw. I'd prefer staying in the competition as long as possible, rather than go out all guns blazin' in the next round.
Great following last night. Probably the easiest night you've ever had at Bramall Lane. I've put my report/rant on
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.
Amos: of course he did! The man is a humungous *****head.
Gutted I missed the match... spent 12 hours on a bleedin bus instead...Not suprised the lads did so well, hope we get the spuddies next....
Match report will appear later tonight, lunch appointments and all that crap.
Little Dutch
The draw for the CC is at the same time as the Man U game. Thats just wierd.
i agree with u guys diarra played an excellent game alongside eduardo and denilson and i would love to see diarra and dudu start vs. manu but i just don't see it happening and i think that wenger will stick with the same team that started against liverpool
The Arsenal away support were also great yesterday, can't believe how many went up, although understandable given the quality of our Carling Cup team!
Another Chelsea -Arse final would be exellent, just leave the handbags at home ok?
Blue is the colour
Playing great football cant see the Arsenal losing this season... Spurs in the next round?
Lets all be honest here! if we're gonna play you guys, then i'd rather it be in the final! the best draw for all teams in the next round is to draw the spuds! and give em a good kicking whilst they're down! whether it be us or you!! they need a spanking!!
