    Given our cup draws over the past 3/4 years I'm fairly sure we're not part of the conspiracy.

    Wait... you're putting us as the easiest... because Bristol C, while in the Championship, have two losses (Whereas we defeated a Leeds team that was higher than Bristol C), because West Ham have defeated Tottenham (whereas we not only defeated Liverpool, and West Ham should've sacked theirs for doing even worse), and Bournemouth... are somehow harder than us.

    I get where you're going with this, but geez... if Shrewsbury were still in, you'd say they would be the more difficult match.

    One loss, and no my point was that the four biggest clubs left are collectively facing easier teams.

    Two. Leeds (before the Palace game), and Birmingham.

    I only just wanted to reply to that, lol.

    Think we're going to rotate heavily. Leicester probably will too. Looking forward to it but think it might be a struggle.

    West Ham will inevitably be more up for it than Arsenal tomorrow morning. Wouldn't mind us taking this competition seriously for once, for after all, it's a trophy Wenger has yet to lift. Win the League Cup & the Europa League this year, the Champions League next and the great man will have the ultimate collection of honours.

    Tosin, Foden, Brahim starting. Dele-Bashiru, Nmecha and Duhaney on the bench.

    Think we'll lose but it's a good night for our academy.

    Wenger has put out a pretty strong team, Willock the only real young player out there. The Arsenal 'B' team getting some decent game time this season.

    Walcott is trash. Rapt Wenger’s finally seen it and dropped him from the main stuff.

    Under a lot of pressure now. We'll do well not to concede.

    1-0 win... Were never really troubled by West Ham. Good to see Welbeck get on the score sheet.

    1-1 at ft. Extra time ahead. Nmecha and Dele-Bashiru both on for debuts in the latter stages of the 90. so while the penalty was disappointing it's a great opportunity for them to get serious minutes.

    Leicester the better side in the 2nd half so not confident.

    The Foxes very lucky to get away with that.

    Vardy and Mahrez bottle it and City go through.

    Don't think there should have been a penalty in the last minute of normal time. Felt a hand on his shoulder and went down way too easily.

    I don’t know what to make of that. Penalty was a complete jammy dodger. We should’ve stolen it in extra time. That penalty shootout reminded me of the one against Hull, our keeper (Seriously? Hamer?) had no hope of saving any of the shots, and Mahrez and Vardy were always going to miss. Once it got to pennos, you knew we were gonna lose.

    Seriously, can anyone name me a more unreliable penalty kicker than Mahrez? I have no confidence in him at all.

    That could've been us in the semis... really good chance for silverware gone begging.

    Guess we'll need to get serious, and finish top 7 if we want Europe.
