Arsenal draw Hull City in FA Cup

Arsenal have been drawn against Hull City in the FA Cup third round.

The game will take place at The Emirates on the weekend of Jan 3rd, as the Gunners look to defend the trophy they won at Wembley back in May when I thought it was going to be one of the worst days ever but it turned out to be one of the best days ever and I drank lots of rum and had fun with lots of Arsenal fans who were really happy that we’d won a trophy and enjoyed it at the time and didn’t write it off as an unimportant competition simply because it suited them to do so for the sake of a specious online argument with somebody they’ve never met in their lives and probably never will meet.

The two clubs obviously last met in the final earlier this year when the Gunners overturned a 2-0 deficit to win the trophy for the first time since 2005.

For larks, re-live the game with Mrs Blogs’ epic FA Cup final live blog.

What luck! It should be an interesting one, to say the least.


I like that we are always the home team in most of these FA Cup draws!

No 2 goal mercy to start this match, please.


Curiously, in the dress rehearsal before the real draw, we were also drawn at home to Hull! Hopefully we’ll have our season on track by then and progress comfortably.

It’s got to be rigged haha


You couldn’t make this shit up though. Bloody banter.


It was just banter….


At least its at home. Lets hope Anthony Taylor don’t ref the game.


I still haven’t forgiven him for that villa game. Two players broken and a bunch of bad decisions that day.


I take exception at your use of the term “cuntbuster.” Anthony Taylor is so utterly incompetent he doesn’t even have the wherewithal to be a cuntbotherer, or any other form of mild cuntmeddler, let alone a cuntbuster.

We rarely get an easy draw (unlike Chelsea who get yet another easy draw) but at least it’s a winnable game!

I pity Marouane Chamakh. If he looks out of place and lost when Crystal Place play at home then how on earth will he cope with playing on Dover Athletic’s postage stamp pitch perched halfway up a steep hill?

Everybody in Dover wanted to draw Arsenal. Just to annoy me.

Poor. Hull, we’re going to beat you cleanly this time so that it is easier for you to swallow.


It’s a fairly difficult draw compared to our rivals who’ve all got either championship or league 2 opposition.


But we could have got Man United or Chelsea away, too. We’re at home and it’s very winable – so we should be happy.


Ah, what are we going to do if when we don’t have Kallstrom available?

AS17 is for A.Sanchez not

thanks for the relive moment. couldn’t have come at a better time.

My name is my name

Look at that picture. We were all so happy that day.


Seems like forever ago. I’d relive that moment in an instant. 10 years of pain all taken away in an instant. Was amazing

2014-2015 = the year we've been waiting for

The Cazorla free-kick made my eyes moist, after Koscielny’s equalizer I noticed a solitary tear rolling down my left cheek, and when Ramsey struck the winner I bawled my fucking eyes out right in front of my son.

The “Greatest team, the world has ever seen” song could be heard non-stop during the 10-minute walk from Emirates (live screening) to Highbury & Islington station, continuing down the escalator, onto the platform, and even inside the train!

Arsene: “judge us in May”… is he referring to the Champions League final in Berlin? Nothing wrong with dreaming.


We shut Holloway Road the fuck down 🙂

Were the FA hoping because we’ve been shit lately that Hull will be all revengey to us and make us look more stupid? I wouldn’t be surprised. I really do wonder if this shit is rigged sometimes.

Fireman Sam

It is fishy indeed.

Still, sweet fa we can do about it now…and if we want to be considered title challengers we’ve got to be able to dispatch teams like this routinely, so bring it on.

Oh, and Chelsea and Man U can suck my hairy nads.

oh,poor Hull…


Could we please have more live commentaries from Mrs. Blogs? I thoroughly enjoyed her fine commentary and witful remarks, especially the bit where she compared Steve Bruce to a lava lamp.


Maybe we’re going to play a reverse of last year’s fixtures, so we smash Spurs in the final!


Eh ? We’ve already played and drawn with them, at home, since the cup final have we not ?


I smell a specious online argument


Haha that really was epic commentary Mrs. Blogs! Gave me chills!


Haaaaaaaaa Mrs Blog. Reading it again make me go through all the feelings I had on the day.


‘Some fellow off, some ginger fellow on.’

Classic Mrs. Blogs


Run-on sentence much? LOL


Please let mrs.blogs do more live commentary, very entertaining stuff.


For superstition, in any title winning game it has to be her?


Top tier shithousery


Here we go underestimating a smaller team, if we don’t have some of our wounded back (Ozil/Kos) we will struggle.


Mrs Blogs that was a truly epic and an excellent way to relive the memory of a very welcome and exciting cup win. Its amazing how a few words can evoke such a warm and pleasing memory. I think some of our fans should remember that no team has a divine right to to win and the majority of teams never win anything!


Thank fuck it wasn’t Stoke at the Potteries … we’d be 2-0 down within no time.
You must have wet your knickers Mrs Blogs when Ramsey rammed it in … hope it felt good


Mrs Blogs did an absolutely stellar job that day.


Did Rambling Pete write this article?


the clubs last met oct 18th 2-2 draw !!



Now hold them, HOLD THEM DAMMIT! Oh my God I feel like crying.
