Capital One Cup (English League Cup formerly Carling Cup)

richyuppierichyuppie Chelsea 2012 UEFA Champions PExer
Looks like we have the best Carling Cup finish we had for years. The "Big 5" are still alive in the quarterfinals. The final 8 teams:

Cardiff City
Arsenal
Manchester United
Crystal Palace
Manchester City
Liverpool
Blackburn
Chelsea

Although we have known that these big teams take this competition lightly on its early stages, I don't think at these stage right now they will, especially for Arsenal and Liverpool who need a trophy badly.

Exciting draw tomorrow, and yes, I never got excited with the Carling Cup before...lol

We will have at least one fixture featuring the Big 5, and a maximum of 2.

I am not sure of SAFerguson's commitment thought with this competition, even at this stage. I remember back in 2008-09 FA Cup semi-finals when he fielded in a B-team again Everton, claiming Wembley pitch conditions are too dangerous for his star players.

Anyway, let's wait for tomorrow's draw...


Indeed!

    ^^ have to agree, looking forward to the draw also.

    I'd love to see a Manchester and London derby in the next round. As for Liverpool, as long as we get a home tie I'll take anyone *okay*

    SAF will use this to give games to the players who needs it and to blood in his youngsters. If we crash out I don't think he'll mind too much since we've won this twice the past three years.

    I want the team to win the FA cup though, it's been too long since we've won it and I think it's long overdue! Regarding that FA semis against Everton, IIRC besides the pitch claims, he wants to give the youngsters a go and to rest the big players for an upcoming game.
