EFL Cup - 3rd Round Draw

Recommended Posts

Get clubs boycotting it and hopefully they'll rethink these absurd changes and decisions.

Seeing as it's a Thai brand, I'd be up for Round 4 being done between two women and a set of ping pong balls. Now that would help redeem itself.

At first I was going to argue against the fume because I thought the issue was having the draw done in another country and didn't see that as a massive issue, whilst agreeing that it's still one step closer to holding the final in whichever country is the highest bidder.

Then I noticed it was 4.15am, not 4.15pm :dam:. The time difference is 7 hours so they could at least have gone for around 4 or 5pm local time resulting in a 9-10am draw UK time. You'd think with all that money they could buy some common sense.

Well you'll need a lot of that energy drink to get through it.

Theres talk of the sponsors wanting games moved so people in China can watch it at a more convenient time for themselves. If that happens I would have to agree with a boycott as that's ridiculous.

I reckon that rumour has legs given how the lady connected with Carabao and Reading wanted all Reading fans to sing a song before the Ipswich game last season which went down like a lead baloon. They don't seem to have any connection or understanding of English football at all.

You wouldn't need to boycott as the game would be on at an impossible time to even go to the ground. xD

Think of China's time difference and that the games are midweek and you'll see where I'm coming from.

Absolute disgrace that it's at that time. Sums up the way English football is going completely. No doubt you'll get some "it's only a cup draw", which is correct, but these things lead to another.

Want Brentford or Bristol Rovers away. Know full-well I'll wake up tomorrow seeing we've been sent to the fucking Emirates.

I'm totally convinced they do it to see how much they have to piss off the fans in this country for them to get a proper reaction (and by that, I mean more than a social media outrage), they'll push it bit by bit.

If you have to do it to benefit the Chinese, it isn't impossible to include the English too, you know, as it's our fucking tournament.

Can't help but feel it's one step closer to getting games abroad, which they clearly so desperately want.

Too many Premier League sides at home, would be some potentially decent games if they were reversed.

LCFC v Liverpool i expect a lot of goals, both defences are average at best. 

could be weaker squads for both to be honest. Especially Liverpool considering their CL campaign will be underway and we both play each other a few days later in the league.

Leicester vs Liverpool is probably the pick of a bad draw.

How many Premier League teams went out in the second round? Just the three?

Yeah. Hopefully they'll rest some players so we only lose 3-1.
