    First leg is 'in the week of 9 January' with Palace at home, with the second leg to be held in the week beginning 23 January.

    Whoever wins (come on City!!!) will face Man City or Liverpool. It's great that a Championship team will make it to the final and it will be even better if that team is Cardiff!

    COME ON CARDIFF!

    What a night ! Not sure if I am either still drunk or just still buzzing :)

    As to this semi, well I must confess that when I initially saw the draw and realised that we were having to play away for the second leg a little bit of me sagged but on the other hand we seem to save our best performances for away from home so maybes.....

    But the whole thing has been a pleasant surprise given our recent form in cup comps so who knows what will happen. I must admit a Wembley final would be fantastic and the chance to take my own kids to such a game would be a dream come true.

    My own prediction is a bore-draw at Selhurst and then Palace to win 1-3 in the country leg.

    Last season under Dave Jones I might have agreed with you, but we are made of steel these days. 1-2 at Selhurst 3-1 at CCS, city to win 5-2 on agg!

    True, but I think we genuinely are. Cardiff seem to have a bit of thing over us last few years.

    Really looking forward to this. Daft as it might sound, not really that bothered about the final itself much beyond the day out nature of it. I would imagine that Liverpool especially will put out a full strength squad and I reckon Man City will be desperate to get some more silverware in the Trophy cabinet so I am realistic enough to know that who ever gets to the final is likely to get tonked.

    This semi is really the Championships cup final !

    And not a glory hunter in sight. :)

    you sure? It's most unusual for you to play both matches on a tuesday, it should be one on a tues, and the other on a weds, to minimise any complaints about tiredness from weekend matches etc.

    Ah right. Well it's never been the case that runners up qualify, so fuck knows how they got that wrong!

    Its an anti Cardiff conspiracy I tells ya. Ah well, if we beat Palace we will just have to win the final!
