Arsenal 3 - 0 Ipswich (agg 3 - 1)...

Last night Paul and I went to watch the mighty Arsenal take on Ipswich Town in the 2nd leg of the Carling Cup semi-final at the Emirates Stadium. Not sitting in our usual seats we were nearer the 9,000 away fans. Fans who were being pretty vocal - having beaten us 1-0 at Portman Road in the 1st leg and sensing a big upset. It took us until the sixty-first minute before Nicklas Bendtner opened up the scoring. Three minutes later Laurent Koscielny headed another in from a corner. Finally Cesc Fabregas sealed the visitors' fate on the seventy-seventh minute. 3-0 the result (3-1 on aggregate). "You're not singing, you're not singing, you're not singing anymore. You're not singing anymore."

Arsenal will now play either Birmingham or West Ham in the final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 27th February as we attempt to win their first silverware since the 2005 FA Cup.

UPDATE: Looks like we'll be playing Birmingham City in the final then.
