Can we have an away match please?!!!

At 12.15pm today, on Sky Sports 1 show, Soccer Saturday, the draw for the 5th round of the Carling Cup takes place.
United are number 5 in the draw and could be playing Arsenal, Blackburn, Burnley Derby, Stoke, Spurs or Watford.
It used to be the case that every red and his dog was praying for an away draw just for the buzz of going somewhere new.
But now, with the automatic cup scheme plaguing the pockets of fans, they have another reason to hope for any opponents - at all - as long as it's not at Old Trafford.
The match will take place on either December 2 or December 3, so we'll bring you a travel guide as soon as possible after the draw.
The last time Glazer allowed United to get an away draw in the League Cup was in 1893 when Newton Heath played Accrington Stanley.
