We have virtually the same squad as last season so no reason why we cant have a good cup run with our 2 new wide players added.

Anyone know if there is a ToffeeWeb or noredshite fantasy football league?

Just watching another cup game, the UEFA super cup between Chelsea and Villarreal. Gone to penalties, but with a minute to go of extra time, Chelsea subbed their goalie Mendy for Kepa. Is Mendy really bad at saving pens and Kepa exceptional? Maybe Kepa can take a penalty as well.

Actually Mendy may be injured. 😳😳😳

Whatever the reason for the goalie being subbed, Chelsea win 6-5 on pens.

Rob, and the '85 super cup game we lost out on...

Is Oumar still with them as I remember seeing something that said he had joined Huddersfield.

Mike(#6); Given our forays into the transfer market so far it appears that the price is right.

Mike @ 6, I heard he will only come back if he gets a locker. :-)

He couldn't play in a suit Neil, come to think of it he couldn't play without a suit. :-)

Couldn't fault his spirit though!

Does anyone recall whether or not Benitez used to take this trophy seriously? We could do with a trophy even if it has long been devalued by managers playing 'the stiffs'?

Huddersfield have limited the number of tickets for away fans as they want to give their own fans maximum opportunity to attend. Sounds like they don't want to be outnumbered at a home match!

On another note, Leeds have priced their tickets at £30 (fair enough) with a whole ONE pound concession for OAP's!

Derek (13) In recent seasons playing the lower league teams has not been a problem. We have mostly failed against the top sides.

Martinez took it seriously in 2015/16 reaching the semi-final only to lose to Man City. In 2017/18 we lost 2-1 at Chelsea, 2019/20 we lost 1-2 to Leicester and last season 0-2 to Man United, each time with the strongest available team.

John, didn’t we lose to Leicester on penalties?

My enquiry really focussed on Rafa's record at Liverpool. I seem to remember he generally played fringe players!

Ray, you are right of course. It was 2-2 after ninety minutes thanks to goals from Davies and Baines. Mea culpa!

Moise Kean's goal was sweet – pity it wrongfully got disallowed.
