Carabao League Cup 2019/20 Thread

I think the unpopular opinions thread is exactly where this needs to be.

Imagine how we’d feel if we suddenly got up rooted and became the Devonshire Foxes. 

Then set up our own Phoenix club, when we played them it would be more than a little petty.

AFC Wimbledon have a done an amazing job to get whey they have.

MK Dons, after their awful re-birth 15 years ago, are doing a fine job in their own right.

Wimbledon should be proud of their rise.

MKD should be proud of what they're doing now.

 

I can understand the initial anger/pettiness, maybe even until they first played each other.

Last season Wimbledon were in a higher division.

At some point, surely, you start to move on, like with most things in life.

 

As a fellow football league club, AFCW have treated MKD very poorly.

They could rise above any bitterness - 15 years on - but they choose not to.

I personally think it reflects poorly on them.

 

PS Whenever I've covered games at MK Dons, they've been nothing short of magnificent, always helpful with the media and I've seen some of the terrific work they do in the community. I despise how they came about but I applaud what they do now. If that's an unpopular view, I can deal with that.

2nd Round draw is taking place tomorrow (Tuesday 13th August) live on SkySports after the Salford vs Leeds live match.

 

Gonna be strange having the draw done in a studio rather than a supermarket or at 4am in Bangkok.

They'll probably still drag in Timmy Mallett and Zippy from Rainbow to conduct it, though.

Amazed how we've managed to avoid playing them in a competitive match for the vast majority of time I've been a STH holder/reasonable away regular - which is since around 2000. I've been to most other Football League regulars either through our yo-yoing around the leagues or through cup matches, but they and Notts County continue to avoid us.

Definitely. I only managed to get to Meadow Lane because of the friendly last season.

Bradford are one for me to. I started going regular around 2002/03 (I was about 10 and did a handful of away games.... one of which was Grimsby which is how I've ticked that off!) and I believe Bradford away that season was midweek so I didn't go but we haven't played them since lol

Yeah I was a little disappointed to miss that friendly, though it would be good to play them in a cup match too!

 

I made Bradford around the Trevor Benjiman days, must have been the 02/03 season I guess. Grimsby was one off my first away matches too in a cup game I think, then again for the infamous Muzzy goal. There used to be a thread on here ages ago with numbers of grounds ticked off by each poster, wonder who's up to where now!

 

 One of the downsides of being a Premier League regular is definitely missing out on these grounds, I could go as a neutral but if i'm not at an LCFC game there's usually a list of other things I need to do with my weekend instead.
