      Anyway one good thing with this Carabo cup is that Spurs and Chelsea get 2 more competitive matches, just a shame Citeh have a stroll to the final and can field their B team in 2 matches although I suspect they may field a fairly strong team tonight to ensure the job is done.

      Yep.

      Think I said as much at the time.

      Look at the way he fell, it even looks like a dive, Textbook Arry, Textbook! plus the gormless tw*t was offside anyway.

      There is a difference in simulating a dive skilfully, and being bundled over by the opposition player at pace.

      Because he's Harry Kane with an OBE his intentions are genuine in the eyes of people, but a player for Liverpool is through on goal and is knocked off the ball by the defender in the box, a media/fan witch hunt ensues? Players start verbally bullying him in games?

      This doesn't happen to Mr. Genuine Harry Kane. Because he took England to the semi-final of the World Cup. If it's outside the box though, and he's no question dived without contact, nothing is mentioned of it again (like he did against Wolves the week before).

      Cannot stand the in denial, receding ball-bag.

      Chelsea showing an alternative angle showing Kane is offside. The interesting thing is that the linesman put his flag up and stopped running and so did the players he clearly had an influence on the Chelsea defender.
      VAR is going to cause just as many problems as it solves.

      This game between Citeh and Burton is why there needs to be a proper seeding system in these competitions, absolute joke that Burton got this far in the competition without facing proper competition.

      Or better still...scrap the whole sorry excuse of a competition. A cup I care little for that just cheapens English football.

      They knocked out a few good teams to be fair: Burnley, Forest, Villa, Middlesbrough. I think they earned their place, I don’t think seeding failed here.

      make it a competition but for under 23's . I suspect one good CL game with TV is worth more than winning the League Cup.

      it simply isn't valued by clubs as it once was. Paisley realised it was a good way to get an early entry into Europe before the CL sucked the life out of the Uefa Cup and the Cup Winner Cup.

      I personally would bar the top 6 Prem teams from taking part. At least then the lesser teams would stand a chance. Burton didn’t stand a chance with the team City put out, 9-0 as I type, it’s farcical, and it’s only the first leg!

      Agreed. Something needs to be done. I don’t think there’s anything that can be done in terms of the way the teams are drawn out of the hat though. Clubs in the Prem and even the Championship are fielding weak teams in the cups, can’t blame Burton for beating who’s in front of them.

      In times like this though there needs to be a boxing equivalent of throwing the towel in the ring...

      I couldn’t give a damn what the scoreline was, 1-0 or 9-0, makes no difference to me because in one game Burton wouldn’t have had a chance so over two games they were never going to go through. My point was how god damn lucky they have been with the draws this season.

      If anything, hopefully this result leads to them being complacent when they play Wolves.

      Some people with short memories, had a few great days out through the league cup, yet now we have this garbage about it being meaningless. A trophy is a trophy and this pl and cl are the only thing that matters is something that really gets my goat.

      But why, surely you can see we don’t have the resources of the plastics or Utd, just look at our defensive issues at the moment!

      Which tournaments do you think we prioritise?

      Would you say spurs or chelsea have a much deeper squad than us ?. No i wouldn't,  people are talking about having less games being an advantage , we are talking 2 or 3 games a month which is hardly massive. Injuries can happen at anytime so this nonsense about worrying about players actually playing in case they get injured. Perhaps also you shouldn't be weakening the squad in january.

      So who should have played VVD was not well, Hendo and Lallana both due to play picked up a knock.

      I suppose Gini, Robertson and the front 3 who barely every get a break could be run into the ground.

      We were just unfortunate to have had a run of injuries at the wrong time simple.

      Why have the front 3 on the bench if you want to rest them, it was inevitable that they would be used.

      I think the front 3 were back up only, I find it a bit disingenuous to Klopp that he never took the game or cup seriously, if that were the case Klopp would not have bought on Bob & Mo..
      The team he picked is what he believed would have won against Wolves...they failed him..

      or alternatively, he failed them.

      Come on mate, he got it wrong. His setup was a mess. He does make mistakes you know..
