    Pennant AFAIK hasn't been allowed to play in carling cup games this season, so he might not be allowed as Wenger might bring him back soon.

    Adam - I think because of the season long implications, playing in cup matches is treated completely differently to league matches.

    That's what i am hoping. Having say Penannt and Volz cup tied could be hindering if we need them because of injuries.

    Indeed! (there's one for those with long memories!).

    Well gutted personally over todays draw, was hoping Arsenal would be at home to a little team or at least local to me (preferably Peterboro :wink: ) Think Arsenal should win comfortably and I hope BBC do show it, we are always second fiddle to Manure :x Hope to see a few of the youngsters play but for an all Premiership clash, can't see many of them playing unfortunately.

    No reason why Arsenal shouldn't win.

    Leeds have bigger fish to fry; staying in the Prem; so they won't be seating over the result. For Arsenal it's a pride thing. HHolders for 2 years & finalists for three; can't see them fielding an overly weakened team.

    I think Wenger should really start getting serious again with the FA Cup, winner's on the bounce, we dont want to be out in the third round after our run of wins, I'll be happy when we break the record

    I dont see more than 2 changes from the first eleven we normally have. All i can see is maybe Thierry being rested or benched for someone like Aliadiere or Wiltord to shine ( like last season at OT and the Bridge )

    Wiltord just enjoys the atmostphere in FA Cup games and relishes it. Edu also play's well under FA Cup conditions

    I think it's fair to say that Arsenal have got bigger fish to fry too. We should beat them but it would have been nice if had drawn someone like Accrington or Macclesfield

    i guess that henry, viera, pires and campbell won't play.. oh add toure, cole, bergy and gilberto to that list as well..

    thus the arsenal fa cup team will read

    clichy keown cygan hoyte
    edu cesc parlour wiltord
    kanu aliadere

    with stack, senderos, lauren, ljungberg and bergy..
    a good mix of the youngster and 1st team..

    For the record, I'd expect us to play pretty close to full strength in the FA Cup, particularly against a Premiership side on the road. Leeds have played much better recently, and let's not forget they did just hold the Roman empire to a draw.

    Good news for people in the UK- Our game is being shown on Sky on the Sunday (4:05pm kick off)

    Nah - it'll be half first team and half reserves. Look at the number of times he's rested players in big FA Cup games in the last couple of years.

    I agree. I don't think the side will be too different from our Carling Cup team.
