So who fancies us drawing burnley in the carling cup quarter finals after they knocked chelsea out tonight on penalties ? Could be fun

There's a Chelsea V Dingles topic in the general section that will probably be discussing this by tomorrow morning, but who knows? I'll post in here too, it makes no difference to me. ;)

Yes, I'd love to see us get them in the quarters, it's almost written in the stars for us to get them now we're both through, especially as Burnley beat someone as huge as Chelsea. I'd be mightily disappointed if we don't draw them. :(

I won't be allowed to go on, though. The wife has banned me from attending any of these games and I'd be in big trouble if I went against that ruling. She says it's too dangerous, and she's probably right. Possibly more dangerous if we were to get them at Turf Moor because I'd be in danger of someone recognising me in the away end and that could be a very scary situation.

I guess I'll have to catch it on the telly - IF we do draw them. :cry:

If we do get Burnley next, I'd imagine half our fans would be cheering them on so that they have an excuse for Ince to be sacked... :scratch:

2 consecutive balls out and still missed the chance of playing them. utd at old trafford only chance we have is if fergie plays the kids again but even then i cant see us getting through.

Isn't it amazing that the "big" teams never come up against each other til the last rounds....

yeah i completley agree its really pissing me off that every year we always get a premiership side like this year its everton,sunderland now man u
last year we got chelsea and got knocked out

they never play each other straight away its all about entertainment u dont want to see leeds and scunthorpe in the final. you want to see man u and chelsea :doh:

well there is a chance we can go through and burnley do too and then we play each other in semi finals :hyper:

In these days of spiralling debts and loss of capital, they need to try and control their GARGANTUAN debt in anyway they possibly can... :scratch:
