Not often Arsenal provide a welcome break!

Not often Arsenal provide a welcome break!

Most teams looking at an away game against Arsenal would be fearing the worst but, however many goals the Gunners` second string put past Coventry City in midweek, the League Cup tie at the Emirates Stadium provided a hugely welcome break from the nightmare that is supporting the Sky Blues in League One this season.

A 7,000+ away following is making the journey down to North London to experience the feeling of being at a big game in a superb stadium against a great side. Without any of the pressure that has come from following City`s woeful efforts at winning league games this one can just be enjoyed as it, a refreshing change from the spiral of decline that the club is currently locked in.

The money will come in handy too of course. Even a match such as this, at the bottom of Arsene Wenger`s list of priorities, will attract a huge crowd and provide City with a welcome share of the proceeds.

The two sides were almost equals the last time they met in this competition, in November 1997 when a Denis Bergkamp goal in extra-time won a tight tie at Highbury. The Sky Blues were a well-established Premier League team while the Gunners were just embarking on their Wenger-inspired rise back to the very top of the English game.

Around 9,000 away fans now going. Let's hope they like what they saw and make it to the MK Dons game on Tuesday night!
