Very Good reception, will probably need to switch frequencies at 1700z ...the Carabao (League) Cup is one of four Major Trophies an English club can win in a given year (the others: UEFA Champions or Europa (can't win both - think NCAA/NIT), the FA Cup, and Premier League).  Oddly, this match has turned out to be bigger match than anticipated for participants Manchester City and Arsenal.  Arsenal needs a win to have this season have any sort of respectability.  Manchester City was thought a viable contender to win all four trophies this season was knocked out (sigh  :-\) of FA Cup this past Monday.  While the Premier League Trophy (regular season Champ) is all but wrapped up with two months to play, a season without at least two trophies this year will be deemed a failure.

Oddly, Arsenal was due to host Man City today in London's Emirates Stadium in a regular league match if they weren't meeting in this Cup Final in London's Wembly Stadium - that match has been moved to Thursday March 1.

Josh....City has already beaten United at Old Tratford and won a trophy.  Both squads display transportation on the front of their jerseys, United has Chevy/City has  Etihad Airlines.  Having been in both, yet another reason to side with the Cityzens.   ;D!   City 'Til I Die! (and with any luck, afterwards in the afterworld)
