....I have decided not to attend the EFL cup draw on Friday.

Maybe someone else has mentioned it but it's taking place in Thailand (1 pm) as that's where the new sponsors, Caracao (energy drinks firm) are based..

In around March I heard an interview from a senior guy from checkatrade, the previous sponsors, the gist of which was all the uproar and complaints about the competition meant it got far more press coverage than they anticipated, and accordingly much more brand exposure than they thought

EFL Cup is the old League Cup (Milk, Rumbelows, Coca-Cola, Worthington, Carling and Capital One), Checkatrade are the EFL Trophy (Auto Windscreens, LDV Vans, Johnstones Paint) sponsors and still do as far as I'm aware.

Well we're in the South group which looks as if the furthest North we can go is Wolves maybe.
...but obviously we'll get Southend away. :-)

...and not a single f#!$ was given.

(about the draw, not your post!)

I guess the fixtures might filter over to England sometime in the coming weeks, at which point some us will shrug. Others will stare blankly.

Please not Southend away, it's a horrible trip mid-week. Wolves would be great can we also get Birmingham, Cardiff or Bristol City they would be good.

Draw shambles

Posted at
13:15




We will just need confirmation of that Oxford United versus Cheltenham tie as Charlton Athletic appeared twice on the graphic on the live Facebook draw page.

Oxford was announced, but the graphic said Charlton Athletic.

A bit of a farce in Thailand.

This is the graphic, we think the second time Charlton Athletic appear should actually be Oxford United.

Just to add insult to injury, this graphic also has AFC Wimbledon v Swindon Town, which actually is not possible as both teams are unseeded.

Just to clarify, AFC Wimbledon will play Brentford and Norwich City play Swindon Town. The top seven ties on this graphic are correct, the next two are wrong.

Oxford it is. Looking at the southern seeded teams, apart from Southend away, could it have been any worse?

I second that.

Shame we could not have had Villa away, or the Blues, or Bristol City in the third Johnson Cup, even Charlton away would have been a first .. damn it, don't like three sided football grounds.

And the travellers will have to negotiate the Oxford evening traffic ... too bad.

Pretty terrible draw, away to a horrible ground where we will likely get knocked out. At least it's only an hour away can't say I'm excited by it though.

One really must applaud the sympathy for minority groups looking for somewhere to stay.

And one can appreciably understand why the Kassam would be an attractive proposition being a three sided stadium, as access to the grass is much less restrictive particularly if horses need somewhere to graze.

Bravo Oxford United Football Club. It should make for an interesting game with a few caravans lined up in the defensive wall.

We're going there to park the caravan, then?
