Arsenal draw Nottingham Forest in FA Cup third round

Arsenal have been drawn away to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round.

The last the sides met was last season in the EFL Cup, and the Gunners ran out 4-0 winners with goals from Lucas Perez (2), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Granit Xhaka.

It’s been 25 years since we met in the cup, with Arsenal winning 2-0 at Highbury on the way to lifting the cup in 1993 – Ian Wright scored both goals on the day.

It’s a chance to reunite with former legend Armand Traore, and Forest are currently 13th in the Championship.

The game will take place over the weekend beginning Friday 5th January, 2018.

Couldn’t stop laughing after seeing Armand Traore.


Now I have just been reminded of how crap he was for Arsenal.


He’s right up there with Cliff Bastin, Ted Drake, Liam Brady and Ian Selley. True club legends.

The first thing that comes into my head any time I hear Traore’s name is his knuckledusters story. Still makes me laugh.


I’m not having former legend, Armand Traore is and always will be a legend

Watch their keeper have the best game of his career :S


Hold on – aren’t we supposed to draw the weakest team left in the competition and at home?
Is this priority 1 or 2 for you this season (sorry, I’ve written the PL out already?)? I’ve always ranked FACup ahead of Mickey Mouse Europe.

I can’t wait to see who we will beat in the final this time!? Come on you rip roaring goal scoring Gunners! x


Legend Armand Traore!


Isn’t Mark Warburton their manager these days? He has a pretty good relationship with Arsene and Arsenal, doubt he’ll be telling his players kick the shit out of ours given he probably wants to grab a few on loan towards the end of Jan.


Good club (terrible owners but that’s the norm now), lovely stadium, alright city so long as you stay in the right places. It’ll be a good game this.


Blogs. I don’t know if this is a new thing but I appear to be stuck in comment moderation limbo. I’m not a bad egg or anything, cub’s honour.
