Starting to dislike Pep, what an excuse:

"Guardiola also suggested that Aguero would have scored but for the ball used during the game.

"The ball was a different ball," added the Spaniard. "If we played with a different ball he would break the record. To score with that ball is a miracle. It is impossible.

"The ball is not acceptable to play with at this level. It is not a serious ball for a professional game. I can say that after we win. If we don't win and I say that it is an excuse.

"We get one day or two days [to use it in training] but if a ball is bad it is bad two days, one week, one month, one year, two years. If it is bad, it is bad."

Supposedly arsenal and man city face being disqualified from haribo cup for breaking sub rule.

Can't imagine haribo will do a thing. They could've played 12 players and they'd get a £50 fine.
Can't afford to lose the revenue two big clubs bring

They both made 4 subs, and you're allowed '1 extra if it goes to extra time', rules don't actually specify that you can't make 2 in extra time, so nothing will come of it.

I had to double check that this wasn't a spoof site. WTF?!

How on earth did City manage to score two goals in the previous round? It’s just unfair that a club can’t buy an advantage and select their own shape ball.

It's just an irritating little kid pushing his team mates away aggressively so he can strike some ****ish pose because he's scored in the Haribo cup against a championship team.
It's very Arsenal.
I'd have two footed him if he'd pushed me away like that, cocky little shit

When I started watching EPL... Mitre was the official ball and THE football we all wanted. And it was freaking expensive back then since we didn't have a local distrubited and all the shops who got it has to specially shipped it form UK.

The draw has been delayed due to a technical glitch. Knowing the Football League that probably means they've forgotten to take the lens cap off and can't work out why the camera isn't working.

Browsing through previous posts, perhaps Pep has complained about the balls being used for the draw?

What could be 'technically' simpler than taking 8 balls from a box. I've just done a dummy run on my kitchen table and it worked fine, although I seem to recall Charlton being drawn out twice in a previous round.

Glad we're out of this competition - especially as I see the draw is to be made by Phil Tufnell & Matt Dawson.

Technical glitch, it's 8 balls put into a pot and taken out one by one, not exactly the most difficult or technical thing to do

but then again, this is the EFL
