    League cup 2021 - 2022

    If we already have a thread you can ignore this. But... why are there two games in this tournament, this weekend, and then no others? What's that all about?

    I read somewhere else that it's allowed if both clubs agree to it.

      I understand the need to squeeze it in around an increasingly packed fixture list for in particular international players at BRCs, but there is something strange about going out of the League Cup in only the second game of the season. Indeed, with the second round to be played on August 24th/25th, 60 of the 92 clubs will be out of the League Cup before the August bank holiday.

      Still, Wigan v Bolton in round two will be a big game (round here).

          I didn't go and watch the Shrewsbury game so missed the rare opportunity to see them win a penalty shoot out.

            Did Newport put out their reserves yesterday?

              It looked a bit like that plus Mike Flynn is isolating.

              Zero shocks in the round, time to end this tournament I think.

                Don't say that, Wimbledon just got drawn away to Arsenal!

                  This is our most successful League Cup campaign since 2000. We got to the fourth round then, and lost at Maine Road. Our coach got bricked on the way home, not far from the ground, and we had to wait for a replacement. I wouldn't have minded so much if we'd won, but it was a bit cheeky having beaten us tbh.

                    Actually, every time we've won through from the first to the third round, we've won the third round tie. So obviously we will beat Arsenal.

                      We've made the 3rd round for the first time ever, to then draw Preston away.

                      We'll probably rotate as much as them - I agree there really is no need for this competition.

                        I'm looking forward to my first visit to Arsenal's new gaff tbh.

                        We're rotating a fair bit in general this season, as it goes. It's the future.

                          Burnley away for Rochdale which is a fantastic draw, especially for those of a certain vintage who still consider them our biggest rivals. I don't know how many times I saw us lose at Turf Moor, league or cup, during the period in the late 80's early 90's when we seemed to play each other every other week, but I do know I missed the game that lives on in Rochdale folklore to this day, a 1-0 victory with 9 men, our goal perfectly captured in a series of drawings from a fanzine of the time showing referee Trevor Lunt gathering the ball from the back of the net and racing back to the centre spot with it so the home side could kick off again as quickly as possible.

                            I think the competition should continue but with the BRC's having to start every game 2-0 down.

                              And right on cue Futbology gives me a 2-1 defeat there in the league from 1988.

                                Even if they play each other?
