Was there ever a better chance to win silverware.

RS (or Lincoln) v Leicester or Arsenal, and Spurs v Chelsea. So some top Premier League clubs going out. As John says, a great chance to finally win some silverware. We could be in the quarter-finals before the end of September, so Carlo needs to take this competition seriously.

That's a good draw. We will need the first team for that one.


By the way, am I missing something ? RS buying Thiago in instalments ?????

Yeah. They've just got his head and will get a leg at Christmas.

If the favs win then it’s a home game against Moyes’s West Ham. The B team will have to become an A/B team for that one.

This should be a case of get past Fleetwood then take the competition seriously. Our second string should still beat Fleetwood

As happened last season, we have a pathway to the quarter-final. What happens then is dependent partly on the luck of the draw and partly on our form in the tricky months of December and January.

This season we appear to have a stronger squad to cope with the extra fixtures. The only missing ingredient is crowd support but teams must by now have learned how to cope with that.

Good draw for us and four/five of the strong teams facing off before the quarter finals make it a great draw overall. Wolves out already?

IF.. remember it's only IF..

Let's not start looking ahead just yet.

Each game as it comes.

So sweet if we could play the Hammers. I still have nightmares about Lampard's Dad dancing around the corner flag so many years ago.

Ahh...to finally win this trophy... simply beyond words.
