    Think we’ll lose this if they play 1st choice though if they play a second string we’ll probably win

    They have Manchester city over the weekend and we have Liverpool. Both will be fielding second team. Top 4 is priority for both teams and every point counts.

    So are Sp**s gonna get a bye it looks like in their game.

    Hilarious that Sp**s looked done against Everton.

    Then out of nowhere they hit Southampton for 5 then probably get through to the next round of the cup without playing.

    This is what signings players does, it brings you this luck...shape up Arsenal!

    Playing against lower league teams is a massive advantage in this cup as the EFL isn’t paying for Covid tests.

    With it spreading as much as it is wouldn’t be surprised if every lower league cup draw ends up a bye at this rate.

    If Leno plays this game it would show the idiocy of our goalkeeper dealings. Though there may be an argument to prioritise this as the trophy we are likeliest to win, the unkind draw means we shouldn't play any of our key players and go with bench and youth.

    As for the goalie situation... we've bought a new keeper - stick him in the team. If Macey was good enough we didn't need to buy the new guy. Martinez has gone straight into the Villa side, Runarsson should go straight into the league cup. This is not a signing "for the future", if Leno gets injured he would be our keeper for the now.

    I'm a massive fan of him as a talent but I can't believe how many people feel sorry for Özil, training with the under 23's / Not getting picked for matches.

    The guys within his rights to see his contract out but he's pretty much cosplaying as footballer at this point, living the high life in London while earning £350k a week. It's not exactly a life worthy of pity :lol:

    Arsenal1508 Mods are unethical! Ozil, come assist me please!

    Leno must play every match this season. Then we can assess if we need to improve in the Summer.

    No more first team games for the youngsters is always good for their development

    Yes it was 6-3 in the Carling cup..Julio Baptista totally ruined Liverpool scoring 4 goals even after missing a penalty..Then we won 3-1 in the league..Happy days.

    Kanu was truly a unique player. Haven't seen anyone in the Premier league with such nonchalant quality on the ball.

    Don't think it shows anything other than Macey has never been anywhere near the first team and our new goalkeeper has only just signed for us

    Win this game and there will be another trip to Anfield 3 days before that Sheffield match.

    Kids only + Özil for me in all those games - maybe add Pepe for much needed confidence

    Why? Play the 2nd string + add some kids (mostly to the bench). The 2nd string all need gametime. We have a big squad and rotation is even more important in this season. So they need to be matchfit and confidence if somebody got injured or hits bad form.

    + Still a trophy to win and I guess Leicester and Liverpool will also not play with first 11

    Counting Reiss, Willock,Saliba, Nketiah maybe even, still as kids as well.

    This is such a nothing competition, it really needs scrapping.

    Ideally play as many kids as possible. Id avoid playing the likes of Kolasinac/Torreira/Guendouzi/Sokratis as we cant afford them to get injured before a potential move.

    Id go:
