Away at Sheffield United
Due to be played week commencing 21st August.
Is that definite or is their a chance the caribou lot have fucked it up again? Would rather have Sunderland away.
We couldn't have been drawn against Sunderland, both teams were seeded.
Sunderland were seeded? Is this the caribou thing or the u23 paint trophy?
Why were Newport County in the Northern section, when Wolves and Birmingham were in the Southern?
A repeat of the first Checkatrade Trophy fixture at the start of last season.
I imagine there'll be a few more City fans there than were with me watching a 0-0 draw last year.
This is the league cup. Not the league trophy. We've got Carlisle, Fleetwood and Morecambe in the under 21 thing.
Newport can't play any home games for a few weeks, because of their pitch not being ready.
West Ham can't play any home games for a few weeks, because it will take ages to turn the athletics stadium into a football stadium after the World Championships.
So both clubs have to play their league cup game away from home.
They couldn't both be in the southern section, in case they were drawn against each other. So one of them had to go into the northern section.
Sounds pretty amateur for league sides. Wasn't too long ago teams were demoted for having shit grounds.
Super, I love Bramall Lane
Newport is three or four miles north of West Ham. Imagine it was the other way round!

Surprised so many of our games are being shown on tv
Sky have got a new "prem only" channel so they'll be trying to fill it.
Murdoch's solution to people rejecting the notion of paying exorbitant monthly fees to watch 2 games they care about a month is to ram more expensive football onto the TV
Cool, I'll keep streaming it for free
Not for much longer if the government has its way.
Good luck to them.
Of course the evil overlord only gives a shit as she's probably at the other Evil overlord's house for dinner most nights.
I'll keep on for the time being.
I mean, it's piracy.
Obviously have a "dog in the fight" here. But illegal streaming is a scourge.
On the other hand...the 10am blackout is the stupidest fucking thing in the world...no reason every single game shouldn't be available to watch.
Have Sky got any more games than they had last season? I thought it was the same number.
I think it's a pity that Sky only make their packages attractive to people who will watch any football. They do nothing for the fan who only wants to see his/her own team. Do they not realise that a huge number of fans do not give a **** about watching the top six if their team is not one of them
Just heard on the news that the Premier League stopped over 600 illegal streams this weekend. I lolled and upset the peace of Mrs Boc (apparently). They must have missed a few!
