The 2006–07 Football League Cup was the 47th staging of the Football League Cup, a knockout competition for England's top 92 football clubs. The competition name reflects a sponsorship deal with lager brand Carling.
The competition began in August 2006 and ended with the final on February 25, 2007. The Millennium Stadium in Cardiff hosted the final match, as it has done since 2001 (the reconstruction of Wembley Stadium could not be completed in time to host the final).
The winners were Chelsea, beating Arsenal in the final 2-1 after two goals by Didier Drogba.

“I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man: wine is not so noble a liquor; and think of dashing the hopes of a morning with a cup of warm coffee, or of an evening with a dish of tea! Ah, how low I fall when I am tempted by them! Even music may be intoxicating. Such apparently slight causes destroyed Greece and Rome, and will destroy England and America.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
