    Arsenal are so ruthlessly efficient when it comes to beating m1nn0ws. Nobody i'd trust more.

    I hope we draw them in the next round, would fancy us to win easily home or away. Liverpool on the other hand...

    Drawing United home or away would be disastrous for us. Stoke away would be pretty **** too. I'd back us to win any other match home or away (liverpool at Anfield being the hardest but I still reckon we'd win).

    I think that phychological barrier against us will be broken this year. I really do think that, i thknk you guys are ready to push on after the way you beat City.
    Then again Middlesbrough did beat them at the Eithad as well :lol:

    Stoke aren't through yet!

    You just know that 2 of Arsenal/Liverpool/United will draw each other and the 3rd will get a virtual free pass to the final.

    It was more the changed defence on non-existent protection from Flamini.
    Yeah very true, interesting decision to bring him back in though, can't decide whether that means he's the cup keeper from now on or if he's been reinstated as 1st team keeper, personally hope Ospina plays next weekend

    Tbh I could definitely see Liverpool losing the replay against Bolton, and tbh any of us 3 could quite comfortably **** up against any side left in it tbh

    I know that, just couldn't be arsed to put in that caveat

    Yeah probably. United - Arsenal in the QF and then winner vs Liverpool in the SF to give some two bit team a final appearance to go along with the token Hull, Wigan, Stoke appearances in recent years.

    Haha I didn't bother that year, the other semi finalists were Barnsley and some other Championship club.

    I'd love to see someone like West Ham or Villa win it, if/when we're knocked out of course.

    It was only two years ago we got knocked out of both domestic cups by lower league sides. I'm not.

    That was an exception to the rule though, our cup record (when not playing an XI of kids) is very good against lesser sides.

    If we get Utd we're out.

    As long as we avoid Utd and Stoke away, we can win it.

    Ideally though you'd be wanting to be playing the lower teams at our place.

    Don't wanna be going to one of the lower league sides with their 'traditional' ground. Fans close to the pitch, able to intimidate the players easily.
