[Archived] Carling Cup


Recommended Posts

I know we aren't in at this round, but since when have they decided to seed teams in this competition?

They'd already picked half the teams out before the draw and given them a home or away tie, before picking the seeded teams out of a bowl.

I wonder if every round will be seeded or if it'll just be this one?

Anything to guarantee a Man U vs Chelsea final again eh?

The second round of the League Cup has been seeded for several seasons now just as the first round has been drawn on a regional basis for years as well..

Only the clubs involved in European competition (including Intertoto) are given 3rd round byes. So 12 Prem teams are in the 2nd round draw and 8 (including Rovers) are not. This is the most recent introduction to the format.

When did it change so that most of the Premiership clubs don't play in round two?

It used to be the case that Premiership sides came in in round two apart from those playing in Europe, who came in in round three.


As philipl states, everyone is presnt and counted for:

The only ones missing are

Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal - all in CL

Spurs, Everton, Bolton - UEFA Cup

Rovers - Intertoto/UEFA

Just as well Rovers get a bye otherwise it'd 2 games in 2 days!

would love to draw them at home in the next round

Burnley at home,I think that's the draw we're all hoping for.

If not,then Blackpool or Morcambe would be good ties(home or away)

Seems to be some bad news about a Liecester player collapsing this evening,I don't know the full story though.
