This isn't a good draw :( good chance of a ringholing and an early exit from 1 of the 3 trophies we can win.Shite draw.

I assume this is some time in October, which already looks like a nightmare month

Not the most favourable draw imaginable but remember that Leicester will also be in the Europa League and facing a fixture pile up. Their collapse at the end of last season under the world's greatest manager ("Arsenal should do whatever it takes to give him a 5 year contract" - Paul Merson) was one that would have made Wenger blush and one of the highlights of the season. They whined like little bitches having Maddison out injured and it exposed their wafer thin squad - don't see them as a threat this season and we have a reasonable chance of doing them in this. I hope we do because not only is it a cup we can win, but a run of games for the younger lads who normally get half a dozen runouts in the Europa too

Pointless trophy the sooner we are out of the better.

In a shortened season I would have rather this had been scrapped than doing away with FA Cup replays.

Agreed. I'd also say play the kids exclusively in this as we are going to see a lot of soft tissue injuries this season with so many games compounding the limited rest and preseason the players have had.
