hoping that rovers lose steam before that game,
49ers
We very rarely get home draws these days.....whats up with that?
Rocky7
I know Rocks. Was hoping that a home draw would be good against any of the teams and up a Blackburn (kick the ***** out of everyone) Rovers aint good. Still, I have faith in the youngsters. Chelsea v Liverpool looks like it could be an exciting game!!!
itsup4grabsnow
The youngsters play like they have nothing to lose and hence end up winning in style. I expect them to steam roll over Blackburn
WouldYouBelieveIt?!
haha itsup4grabs now! If Liverpool and chelsea produce the most boring games ever in the CL than just imagine what the quality of football that will be on display in this worthless cup for them.

Rovers? you´re feckin doomed, been waiting for you lot to start crumble and now it´s finally begun.
Blue is the colour
I dont mind Rovers, it will be an excellent test for the kids to go away to Blackburn. Newcastle was at home, so cannot be any complaints about this one really.
prits
And how do you work that out Bitc? Even if we lose to Rovers it proves nothing regarding our title aspirations. We're unbeaten in every competition so far this season playing great football. Worst wind up attempt ever.

What an ugly gloaty little chav you are blue, rearing your burberry clad mug all over vital and spouting relentless amounts of crap, so much so fellas I suggest aptly re-naming him 'poo in the colon'.

And yeah looking forward to this one big time, we owe Blackburn one for our FA cup departure last season and our second string'll relish trying to go one better than our first team managed at Ewood at the seasons' start.
nikolaijns
might not be the place to send your kids! rovers are rough and tough!

The team Arsenal plays in the carling cup contains Diaby and Denilson both of those players are powerful. Eduardo and Bendtner are also powerful, Eduardo at the least can look after himself. The team Arsenal play in the Carling cup can look after themselves in someways they pack more power. Denilson and Diaby are more powerful than Flamini and Fabregas. I am not worried about the game I accept the fact that Arsenal can lose but on the physical side? No.
Gunners
merlin, they said that when we played Everton away last season in the CC....and West Brom, and Liverpool, and Tottenham.........
Little Dutch
I think it is better that we send the kids out against Blackburn. There isn't any baggage from the previous encounter and there is a curious physhological advantage in Blackburn thinking that they should be able to do better against our 2nd string. Niko's right they will relish the chance to go one better than the 1st team - and we know they have the ability.

To add a little tension and excitement to the game between Chelsea and Liverpool I hear it is only being shown on Teletext!
Amos.
Diaby, Denilson & Diarra wont care about the rough treatment & will be prepared to give it right back. Funnily enough though, its quite possible with the form that Rovers are in & with our team being full of youngsters that Hughes may well tell them to take us on rather than boot us in the air. I think we will need a better defence than we had the other night though because Sheff Utd were s*** & Blackburn wont be!!
Ashburton Gooner
i wanted spurs!

More crap from Blue. Anyway, Blue, you got Liverpool and we know how you choke against Liverpool in cup matches.
BMF
That will be a very hard game for the youngsters against a physical Blackburn.
dazza71
Chels-Arsenal final is still on then!!
daspecial1
the harder the better. no need for home games. the harder the test the more we will perform and learn
ian7
I'm looking forward to this match, should be good - good luck!
