Another north London derby in Carabao quarters

carabao-cup---royal-box-2---1440x810It’s another away trip and another north London derby.

The Irons ravel to the Emirates on December 18 to meet the Gnners in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup and will take another mighty effort of will and determination to move on to the semis.

We really don’t get the best of it in Cup competitions and although you deserve nothing in this game, a home draw would have been more than acceptable.

Never mind it is what it is and hopefully the Spurs game was a corner turning exercise which will see the Hammers start upping their game to the point where we can come away from the Emirates with a win – hopefully not in quite the manner as we managed last night.

The blood pressure ain’t gonna handle too much more of that – here’s the full draw:


Chelsea v Bournemouth

Arsenal v West Ham

Leicester v Manchester City

Bristol City v Manchester United

  1. This is obscene. It has all the hallmarks of a fix. The big four conveniently kept apart, the draw delayed several times and then suddenly a video released. Why wasn’t it live? How much filming did they need to get the draw they wanted. Football bodies stink. Where is the transparency?

  2. A draw to delight sponsors and the big clubs.

  3. They probably drew each other the first 5 times before they fixed it

  4. another match unless you have a season ticket you have no hope of watching what an effing joke

  5. Southampton beat them in this cup at the Emirates last year, no reason we can’t this year…

  6. remember ’75. Arsenal v West Ham quater-final FA Cup. 0 – 2
    A fixed draw won’t save those gooners LOL

    • I hope so mate, I love going to cup matches shame that they all sell out to ST holders, hope also it’s not a repeat of last year where we played so well against Chelsea and played like we did against Brighton at OT…
