A (Stamford) Bridge Too Far?

A (Stamford) Bridge Too Far?

Aston Villa have been drawn away to Chelsea which could virtually guarantee the clash will be televised! Lets hope so, Chelsea charge something like £10 000 a ticket down at Stamford Bridge.

Still, this is the cup, there is no reason we can't go and give it our all and win, especially if Chelsea don't take the cup seriously. Must admit, it was the one tie I wouldn't have wanted though, was hoping for a home game!

Chelsea beat Blackburn in the 3rd round, Villa beat Leicester City in the last few minutes of extra time.

Ties to be played week commencing November 6th.

Notts County v Wycombe Wanderers
Tottenham Hotspur v Port Vale
Birmingham City v Liverpool
Chelsea v Aston Villa
Watford v Newcastle United
Chesterfield v Charlton
Southend United v Manchester United
Everton v Arsenal

The date has now been set for Wednesday 8th November, kick-off 7.45pm.

Ticket prices will be discounted in line with Chelsea's cup game policy. Phew, just £900 per ticket then!

'Chelsea don't take the cup seriously'. Would that be the reason why they nominated such a strong team last night and José said that he had every intention of winning a cup that was crucial on the way to lifting our Premiership trophy in 2005? Dream on, Villans: we have every intention of taking this seriously and that means brushing your lot aside.

Chelsea official site says they've been drawn against Villa who ' knocked us out of the competition three years ago, during the last season under Claudio Ranieri. That game was at Villa Park. Chelsea were more successful in 1998, winning a League Cup tie 4-1 at the Bridge on the occasion of John Terry’s debut. The one other meeting in the competition was back in 1965 when we won a semi-final against Villa over two legs on the way to winning the competition.

IF Chelsea don't take it seriously, IF IF IF. Read what I put. For a few years the 'top' teams haven't always taken it seriously in fact they've done a good deal to make a joke of it, I hope that is changing again now but it is just unfortunate that in this case you'll be progressing no further!

Hark at the new money speaking by the way, brushing us aside? Didn't do that in the league did you? The arrogance of new money knows no bounds really does it?

Hmm, who is calling who arrogant? I mean you say that there is no reason why your lot can't go on and win it. I'd say that there is a huge reason why you might not go on and win it, and that reason is the best team in the land today. P.S. if you're playing Liverpool this weekend, the very best of luck to your lot!

The Fear said there's no reason why we can't go and give it our all and win (the game). Who could seriously argue with that. It's a one off cup game and anything can happen. We've already shown how difficult we are to beat this season! And as for being brushed aside, any real football fan knows that MON doesn't manage teams that get brushed aside. He manages teams that are well organised, committed and fight like hell. And that's what Villa will do at Stamford Bridge. Villa for the cup!

Dear Gordonsleftboot, congratulations on an original thought. Of course, the fact that my father was going to Chelsea in the late 1950s and took me to games in the early 1980s when the ground and team were appalling should not in any way alter your stereotype of every single Chelsea supporter being a Johnny Come Lately.

weve done it once before...angel skip past 2 and belt it in from 25 yards (again). Lucky its only over 1 leg and no replay it could maybe maybe maybe work in our favour. Euroblue we dont about what you think, go away
