Cliché incoming...We should be looking to win every competition! But in all honesty it's a bit naff and CL, PL and FA cup should and will take priority over it. Use it to give the promising kids some minutes.

Every time I read Carabao (as I'm not in the UK and don't know how it's pronounced), I read Haribo. Mmmm, haribo.

What's the capacity when it's reduced?

Was going to take my parents to this one, wondering if it'll go to general sale or not.

I always think we should push hard for the league cup as its easy to go deep and its over early in the season which is a nice chance to get some silverware on the board and help push you on to the next competitions.

My thoughts are the same as the EL - Luck of the draw plays a huge part, if we get to the semi's with a chance to win it I say we go all out if not play a relitavely strong team.

Wtf is carabao?

Definitely something we should go for, very short run to the semis. If we get more kind draws we should go for it 100%

Carabao is cow in Filipino. Not sure why they would sponsor the Milk Cup though.

Barnsley it is then, they beat Derby 3-2. Should be a good opportunity to give some decent gametime to a number of our youth players, mixed in with some first teamers for safety.

Tickets were meant to go on sale today at 3pm. Any idea why they didn't? (Even though the club said they would, regardless of the fact we didn't know who we were playing)

Taking the missus to this one. I imagine it will be shit with the away fans making all the noise and our end being full of tourists. Shame as I love night games.

Tickets are selling like the exact opposite of hotcakes currently.
I think the club's about to have a rude awakening - that after pissing off pretty much everyone so far this season, people won't rush straight back as soon as they have decently priced tickets.

After doing so well with pricing last year which ensured good attendances at all Wembley games, i do not understand why they have apparantly got so much wrong this season - especially after ensuring that full capacity was available.

Do have a concern that we are being broken in gently for some even more scart prices next year
