So here we are, in the quarterfinals of the Capital One Cup. A full-strength Arsenal side is taking on Bradford City in the freezing cold; I hope they're wearing warm socks.
A win tonight will see Arsenal through to the semifinals, which is seemingly why they are running out the big guns, only a week after THEY'RE SO TIRED THEY NEED A REST. One thinks there's some board-generated pressure behind this move, mayhaps?
