Hopefully Arsenal will play the kids, I'm not too gutted, Arsenal didn't get much out of Bolton when Sam was their manager, lets hope he can have the same effect with us.


Same here. Not too gutted as I can imagine Arsenal playing their reserves. Fancy us to get a result down there.

If we want to be successful in a cup competition, we'd have to face Arsenal (or a team that beat them) at some point so I'm not really too fussed.



Rather it was in the final though! :lol:


I wouldn't....


In the final, Arsenal will likely stick out a decent strength team. At this stage, I think he'll play the kids. Remember when we got Man Utd at home one year soon after being promoted and were happy as hell that we beat them despite the fact Fergie sent out a load of kids?

Big Sam has got a good record against Arsenal with Bolton, so hopefully he can carry that on to Newcastle.


Last season I would have been truly gutted, but this season we look much harder to break down and Arsenal are finding it hard to find a cutting edge in front of goal.
