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!!!

The youngsters play like they have nothing to lose and hence end up winning in style. I expect them to steam roll over Blackburn

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!
