Arsenal draw Spurs in Capital One Cup

Arsenal have been drawn against Spurs in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

The teams last met in this competition in 2010 when the Gunners ran out 4-1 winners at White Hart Lane with goals from Henri Lansbury, Samir Nasri and Andrei Arshavin.

The game will take place at their place on September 22nd or 23rd – depending on what games are selected for TV – providing a chance for some of Arsenal’s fringe players and promising youth to get some playing time.

Perhaps the fact it’s a North London derby might affect the manager’s team selection, but we’ll find out in due course.

Well, that should be interesting. How strong of a side will we put out there?

Cornelius P. Snuffington III

Also, I think you mean Sp*rs in that headline.

Thierry Walcott

I saw the headline and thought it was an entirely different club that we drew. Rotterdamshire Spurs or something…

Highberry

I think a mixture of Tasmanian devils and rabid weasels ought to do the trick. Should they not be available then snipers from the floodlights. Failing that then as its the spuds the best, fittest most motivated individuals because they need to be taugh another lesson

Arsenalista

I wonder who we will get in the fourth round

Chris

Fucking. Yes.

shitbird

That just happened randomly.

Scott P

Gotta love this when Man Utd play Carlisle, Chelsea get Walsall, Man City get Sunderland, etc. etc…

Oh well, another chance to beat the Spuds and to laugh at one or more rival as they fall to a team they should have beaten, I suppose…

Arsepedant

Walsall to pull a Bradford City this year.

Scott P

We can always hope

Scott P

Meant that Liverpool play Carlisle, Man Utd play Ipswich…

Arsepedant

Whatever, they’re all nobodies.

American Gooner

Man U plays Ipswich Town btw… Up the Town!

He's got no hair but we don't care...

Groan. The only consolation is that they’re playing even shitter…I mean ‘average’ than us.

Rohith J

Don’t they always?

Arsepedant

It will be nice to put them in their place once again.

It was 4-0

Don’t you mean sp*rs?

Runkeball

To spice things up and silence the “spendsum wha wha WHAAAAAA” crowd at the same time, let’s buy Harry Kane before the window closes.

Edu's Braces

Nah, he’s one of their own remember? Gross

Runkeball

Stick enough money under his nose added with the possibility of winning trophies and he’ll soon become a Gunner.

Arsepedant

Apparently his family prefers Arsenal anyway.

luca james

Giroud is twice the striker Harry Kane is, he had one lucky season, he’ll fade into nothing.

RedCurrant

Sometimes you just have to accept the contagion has spread too far…and impose a strict quarantine!

AntiSpud

They will really need to be properly and thoroughly beaten this time. Just to get them out of the competition

Ozilseyedoctor

Just remeber that: PETR CECH IS MAGIC! HE WEARS A MAGIC HAT. HE COULD HAVE STAYED AT CHELSEA, BUT HE SAID NO FUCK THAT! HE SAVES IT WITH HIS LEFT HAND, HE SAVES IT WITH HIS RIGHT. AND WHEN WE WIN THE LEAGUE AGAIN WE’LL SING THIS SONG ALL NIGHT! repeat

Arsenes Banter

I prefer ‘he wears a rugby hat’ ha!

Nickgooner

This brings back some great memories of watching the game in an empty bar in Portugal and sitting alone with spud telling me how much he rated David Bentley! I just looked at him and thought “Yeah mate, he’s fucking great. Enjoy that.”

Good times.

Me So Hornsey

And so it was written.

Jack Wilshire’s season debut.

Arsepedant

With any luck, it’ll be Wilshere’s first start of the season. I hope he scores a hat trick in each half and takes a dump in the centre circle after the match to prove how totally shit they really are.

Rodders1971

Strongest team available against those cunts…please.
Thanks.

David Hillier's luggage

Can’t wait to make a DVD…

Gunner73

Unleash the Jeff!

bims lay

yep!, ..and Alex iwobi…..pity serge is no longer around, that would have been some midfield trio

Thierry Walcott

Why you gotta post this before me? Oh well you can say that again! COYG!

Penis

Hey guys

Could someone here explain to me who these Totterhams are? They sound like some shitty non-threatening obscure midtable team that no one cares about.

PodB

Spurs are shit, but they beat us easily there in the PL last season …. at least its away cos we can’t fucking score at home from over 100 shots in five games … still, our 2nd team should be too good for them … I hope Arsene plays the up and comers with a dash of Gabriel and Welbeck and OX. But, really, who gives a flying fk about the Capital Cup?

ArseMansBackInTown

A big game. Excellent. We do well in big games…

Don

Ospina
Debuchy Chambers Paulista Gibbs
Arteta Wilshere
Chamberlain Ozil Adelaide
Welbeck

So many assumptions in that.

Thierry Walcott

Hey Don, no Iwobi?

rex

we’ve been drawn against spurs? wow…. shit happens!

Merlin's Panini

Well that’s Sp*rs chance of a trophy gone again for another season 🙂

Ajinkya

Have a look at the fixtures before and after this game guys. I bet you, you won’t be much happy when you realise that we will have to put up a second string side. This is not good news.

paul

We always put a second string side in this competition (until the final).

I seem to remember a few years ago when “the kids” in this competition were playing better than the first team at the time!

Easy win! COYG!

Arsepedant

Wow … no matter what happens with the CL matches, we’re playing four away matches in a row. I guess it’s fortunate that two of them are just tube rides away.

Do any of the Canadian Gooners know if Sportsnet or TSN got any rights to COC games this year?

Ces1ne

4 away matches in a row? So wenger has a built in excuse already (just beat the spuds)

paul

Poor old Spuds, their only chance of a trophy gone early doors!

Sammyoras

So dissappointed with the draw. I was hoping for a good and classy team to test our second strings and young lads against instead we get this crap team? Well i’m off to the Fa and they better have a good explanation

Sammyoras
