    It's a shame it's not next week and we get an away trip to Exeter as I'll be nearby.

  10. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Don't really care and hope we put out the second 11 team. Can't take injuries and give them some experience and playing time.

    Let's go for the fa cup if we're looking safe by then.

    Even the majority of championship teams didn't take this seriously last night with their second 11s.

    If okaka goes out on loan we havent got enough strikers to put out a second 11!

    I'd rather we went full strength but obviously that wont happen, so I'll take whoever's crappest at home. I didnt even know newport were in the football league, and I dont know what a forest green is, so either of them I guess.

    Scum out already! I would like to see us make a bit of an effort in the League Cup I always feel we have missed an opportunity when we go out early after playing a weak team.

    Forest Green.. as it would add a new name to the clubs we've played competitive games against. Technically that would be true of AFC Wimbledon and MK Dons as well.

    I couldn’t really care less. If we play a weakened team they don’t give a toss and we lose, if we play a strong team they still don’t give a toss and we lose.

    Easiest possible team at home, every round, so we can get to the final.
     
  25. I'm gonna hope we lose all the way to the semis. Then I'll say what a fantastic competition it is.

    I might go to a London away match, if the tickets are cheap.

    Otherwise, couldn't care less.

    I'll be in Fuerteventura, will it be on TV? Doubt it, Sky will probably show matches involving Leeds, Everton and WBA.

    To be honest, if it was a choice between watching a League Cup match involving any of those three or a programme about you in Fuerteventura, I think I know which would get higher ratings.

    Full strength team I want a decent crack at winning a trophy staying up every year is good for the owners but it's no fun, a cup run is the only thing to look forward to now playing the Top 4 has got boring and anyway what's one more game a week? Bunch of divas.
