      Aug 13, 2020 02:23:00 pm
      Dates for the Carabao Cup as follows.

      Round 1 September 5
      Round 2 September 15/16
      Round 3 Semptember 22/23
      Round 4 September 29/30
      Round 5 December 22/23
      Semi Finals January 5/6
      Final Februry 28

      First 4 rounds in September, is that a good thing or bad?

      Actually think it's great as teams can use it as warm ups for the League. Just as good as having friendly's pre season. Good decision in my book.

      It does, my mistake  :f_doh: However, it's still good to get this minor competition out of the way that bit quicker with so many rounds in the month. You against the idea or for?

      I don't think teams who compete in Europe enter the League Cup until the 3rd round do they? With non-European Premier League teams entering in the 2nd, it's only teams from the championship & below who enter from the first round. Only real change for us is that the 4th round comes a week after the 3rd. 4th round is usually sometime in late October I think

      Would be a good way to get the fringe players and new signings up to speed so I'm happy with it.

      Yeah without doubt great for the new kids on the block to get early chance/experience of playing with some of the big boys. I do expect the likes of United -Liverpool - Chavs - Arsenal - Spurs using a few of their kids though...

      Not  sure about City though as they have thrown good sides in this competition over the years. Maybe it's because they like the comp or just the fact they have the strongest bench in the league.

      Very easy routes to the final as well mate - This year you lot were the only decent team they had to play in the competition: Preston, Southampton, Oxford, United in the semis & then Villa in the final.

      Season before was Oxford, Fulham Leicester, Burton in the semis and Chelsea in the final

      Season before that was West Brom, Wolves, Leicester, Bristol in the semis & Arsenal in the final

      Fair play to them though, I suppose you can only beat what's in front of you. Just shows that if you take it seriously and get a bit of luck in the draw it's a very winnable competition. I'm sure the supporters aren't complaining about regular trips to Wembley. I think it's nearly 5 years since we've been and it will have been 9 years since we last won anything there

      Another good thing about the timing of the fixtures is some of our loan candidates can play in these games before they have to be registered with a.club squad for league play. helps Jürgen decide what to do AND gives interested clubs a chance to evaluate, plus match experience fkr our players.

      Of course the main benefit is a coach ride to Lincoln.

      Will be interesting to see how strong a team Jürgen fields for this, I'm guessing fairly strong, we'll certainly need a better defence against Arsenal if we hope to progress so hopefully Joe is available for this.

      Arsenal's problem is pretty obvious. Their players are sh*t. We're the Champions and we wouldn't have a single one.

      There are some teams where we could still have a player from. We'd have de Bruyne. We'd probably take Fernandez and maybe Martial (squad). I'd have Son from Spurs. Arsenal? Nobody.

      Sacking their manager would be daft. Long haul back for them.

      Only players I'd take from other PL clubs are Dias, De Bruyne, Foden from City, Fernandes from Mancs, Son and Kane from Spurs, Pulisic from Chavs, and Rice from West Ham, mostly as squad players.

      Arsenal would take half the Leeds squad right now to try stay up.

      It’s a bloody good point, the only player I would maybe take is Tierney as back for Robertson.

      City are back and have the squad to deal with a season like this.

      Difficult to see how we keep up.

      City are playing well right now. With United being out they are down to the FA Cup as their best chance at any silverware this year.

      was pulling for spurs but they just can't seem to get over the finish line in any final... sucks to see city win it tbh.. they played great football in the first 45 mins though to there credit.

      It's certainly a testament to how good Pep is that he can take such a rag tag group of misfits that no one else would want and get them clicking like they are.
