I thought we didn't play in this one. How are we supposed to fit all games in?
Let's go for it though. A big chance for a trophy.

We get an away game. Chelsea are at home against absolute cannon fodders. Predictable.

Championship side Luton for Man United next week after they beat Reading away tonight 1-0. Its so long since United played Luton that Mike Phelan was a starter..

How does the 2nd round work? The 2nd half of the table in EPL plays the 2nd round?

Sides not in europe starts in the second round. It has not been the case for us more than once recently.

Wow, when I saw that Southampton score I thought they might be playing a reserve team, in fact Brentford are playing a weaken team. Bar Vestergaard, Southampton pretty much played their strongest XI...

I feel for him. He either gets 10 mins or he plays with our shite side. Stick him in a full game with Rodriguez, Richy, Doucoure and Allan and I reckon he'll look a lot better.
I guess, but at the same time, I'm focusing more on what he does when he gets the ball, and every time I watch him, he fails to impress me.

Nkounkou has really impressed me, though. Look to have a player there.

Didn't know Gibson was at Salford - I know he's had a lot of issues to battle with, but still seems a shock that he's not even starting for them against his old club.

Wow Wolves on the way to get knocked out. Didn't expect that with a strong side from them.

So it can be Brighton twice in a row? We play them next week right?
With the new format we should go for the win. It is not mixed up with CL group days so resting player do not help as much.
