    Arsenal have the most insane cup draw luck.

    It can't be that bad because you just played us and we don't beat anybody.

    Still a trophy even if it doesn’t really matter. I only want an easy draw in the league cup early rounds so we can play some of the young guys.

    our good luck only extends to FA and (whatever a Carabao is) Cup, not to Europe...

    Very true although most of the time it’s partially your fault for finishing second in the group. Last season was just bad luck. Didn’t you guys get both non-league teams back to back in FA cup last year?

    Chelsea played Peterborough United (H), Brentford (H) & Wolves (A). how did they survive that gauntlet?

    at least Arsenal played Southampton away.

    a championship team, 2 non-league sides and southhampton

    a league one side, two championship sides and manchester united

    which would you rather play?

    We've had some cupcakes but 3/4 of our games to get to wembley first fa cup were Liverpool and Everton(year of the Gerrard slip and Everton getting 5th) plus Spurs. Can't get much tougher than that.
    2nd year was United away and would have had Liverpool in the final if they could have beaten mighty Aston Villa
    Last year was City and Chelsea at wembley

    Might get some tougher runs if Chelsea could beat Bradford at home or City didn't lose to teams like Middlesbrough or Wigan.

    so both teams played one team in the first division.

    so 2nd division and 5th division are the same to you? southampton and manchester united are equal? I am not saying chelsea ran into a gauntlet but your argument is baseless.

    to be honest I forgot you guys drew United in the quarters. my only point was Chelsea didn't exactly have a difficult draw prior to that.

    and Arsenal have had plenty of tough draws in the past like Gunners mentioned. you can't discount all of that because of two non-league sides.

    steaming from Watch ESPN is way better quality than the Fox channels on cable.

    Announcing and quality of production yes. I just like to be able to DVR games like this and fast forward/rewind with ease. Tough to do via stream and not worth jumping through the hoops required to watch game at work unless it’s a big CL/EPL game
