Would love to play Napoli and batter them. Overrated team.

Love to get Ludogorets. Remember Ozil's goal against them last season?

We always reach Last-16.
No problem in the knock-out stage as we seem to get lucky in cup competitions and drawing weak opponents.

Even the Tin Cup ... we drew weak opponents with a relegation-threatened WHU next ... and Forest in FA Cup 3rd Round.

There were 71 teams in the pot for the FA Cup draw Merl, and we drew a Championship one. How is that lucky?

Wasnt it Man City in semis and Chelsea in Final?



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Like we were lucky last season and only met a premiership team in our qtr-final or semi-final game?

Anyway, we are luckier than Liverpool vs Everton.

We also drew Southampton away from home in the fourth round mate, when there was more non-Premier League teams left in the competition than there was Premier League teams, so you could argue drawing one then was unlucky because probability suggested we'd avoid one. But we beat them 5-0 anyway because for whatever reason we're quite good in that competition, only losing once in our last 22 FA Cup games over the past four years. In that time we've beaten Everton, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

We have been good at wembley most definitely. Its become home away from home. Interesting to play spurs there. Will probably be the make or break game for 4th place next year
