FA Cup: It's Town If We Get Past United

FA Cup: It's Town If We Get Past United

If Arsenal can battle their way past Leeds United in the 3rd round FA Cup replay next Wednesday, the Gunners will face Huddersfield Town at home in the 4th round.

The draw was made by three members of the Britsih Armed Forces, as the FA continue their commendable 'Tickets for Troops' campaign through the 2010/11 FA Cup tournament. One of the the trio, Leon Cashman a member of the Royal Navy and an Arsenal fan, pulled the away teams, did us a fairly big favour by choosing Huddersfield Town as visitors to the Grove.

Arsenal and Huddersfield have one significant common interest in that we were both managed by the late great Herbert Chapman, and he helped both clubs win the competition they could now compete against other for.

Surely, after Sanchez Watt for Leeds, we can opt to restrict our own players competing against us.

Huddersfield have a great young goalkeeper called Alex Smithies who at 20 is already their highest earner, 1 to look out for

Kind draw if we can navigate Leeds, who won't be pushovers at Elland Road. They'll turn us over if we go up there with any casual attitude whatsoever. Time for some of our players to show full respect to their opponents.

Looks like Chelsea's "getting a good draw" capabilities have been transferred over to us
