Imagine being Bournemouth in the southern section thinking you won't have to go far and then you end up with Birmingham away xDxD

Amazing. Newport are 20mins from Cardiff, who were in the Southern draw.

Newport drew us at theirs. And to make matters worse for them, they have relaid their pitch, so have to forfeit the home draw and travel to us.

Just a 4 hour midweek trip for them. Could have been worse, could have been Newcastle xD

Are they bantering?

Most shambolic cup draw I've ever seen and serves them right for trying to introduce totally pointless formats for the same end result. Real bug bear of mine is when people try and fix something that isn't broken.

And now they're switching some of the ties xD couldn't make it up.

The first 3 or 4 they fucked up when the red and white home/away balls were read out wrong. Absolute shambles. Embarrassing.

Why have they introduced seedings? Terrible idea. It'll be the FA Cup doing the same next which will be another nail in that coffin.

Brentford v QPR is at QPR.

Ipswich v Palace is at Palace.

Bristol City v Watford is at Watford.

Charlton v Norwich is at Norwich.

Newport v Leeds is at Leeds.

 

So, add in this mess to that nonsense in the first round where Charlton got drawn out twice. Basic stuff this.

They've done seedings in the first two rounds for years to be fair.

Newport at home to anyone was always going to be switched anyway for reasons Lucas mentioned above.

xD I'm quite glad we avoided them then. I'd be going skits as I wanted them or Rochdale away.

All my Rovers fans mates cannot wait but I personally am dreading it. We're 2 divisions below for a reason because we're currently dog shit. I'll still go on probably, but knowing so many Burnley fans... it will be hard work. 

 

Decent draw though!

Amazing how they didn't pick Blackburn v Burnley for TV coverage. Missed opportunity.
