    Yeah I put the 11 changes bit, tried to come up with a team and realised we literally don’t have enough midfielders for that!! Forgot to go back and change it, I guess

    One of the few lower league opponent's I feel strongly about us beating.

    Surely we don’t want to win this.

    Yeah. It would probably be counterproductive, but can't have Franchise FC getting above their station.

    Will there be radio comms for this on Hive ?

    I would of thought so. Team sheet should be quite exciting.

    Forde and Hungbo up front .

    Pollock and Morris in defence ?

    Best guess of the team:

    I would definitely be playing Bayo and Manaj. Get them scoring (hopefully) to build some confidence. They have cost us 4 points because of their woeful finishing.

    Yes I agree. Both should start. A goal for either could be useful longer term.

    I’d imagine Okoye makes his debut tonight. Pollock too.

    I’d like to see Hungbo start.

    I hope we go fairly strong. It would be nice to keep our unbeaten run going, and to get a few players into some sort of form.

    It’s a quirk of fate that it’s a second successive Tuesday night where we come up against a manager we were heavily linked with back in Spring.

    Definitely start Boyo,A Trois and Haribo.

    A Welshman,a threesome and a packet of sweets.

    What could possibly go wrong?!

    Manaj has already scored, but agree with your point.

    Isn't this the kind of game we lose tamely every season though?

    Got to get them in the shop window too.

    Will this game be too early for Hause to play a part I wonder? From what I'd heard, he'd just got back to full training by the time of his transfer here, could he at least play a cameo role in the last 20 mins or so? I expect Davis will do similar

    Saw an article yesterday, published a week ago, that said he was a month or two away from playing.

    Surely no way we sign someone on loan who could be 2 months away from playing?

    Well he’s not had a pre-season due to injury.

    I’d imagine we would err on the side of caution based on..

    1. Our defence, for all our criticisms of it, has so far only conceded twice in five matches

    2. It’s a very long season ahead

    I guess the club will think it’s much better to get him fully fit and match ready rather than throw him in too early into a defence already performing fairly well and risk him getting injured.

    Same with Davis.

    Surely Davis will feature at some point. Needs match fitness.

    Would hope we can get 30 minutes out of him
  20. Would be nice if one of our new signings was able to play some footy for us at some point in the new month or two !!

    Some of the most memorable Watford games I've seen have been in the League Cup. So sad to see us treat the competition as an irrelevance these days

    Would also be nice if some of our older signings could play soon!

    I do agree, but on the other hand, I do think that the whole of this competition including it's general importance has been massively downgraded since those days.

    That's true, but I don't get why that should be. It's one of only 3 competitions we enter so surely we should be trying to do as well as we can in all of them. Back in 'the good old days' we managed to combine going for promotion with a decent cup run so why can't we do the same now?
