I'm visiting Newcastle today, for the first time in years. 

 

I see they still don't dress for the weather.  lol

That's not far off the team he'll choose

Since 2015 we've had Man City (Twice), Newcastle, Southampton, Wolves, Liverpool, Chelsea and West Ham in the League Cup. Crazy the amount of all premier league ties we seem to get.

What are you doing by ruining his conspiratorial narrative. Let the paranoid man have his beliefs!

I wouldn't want to go with two DMFs, especially away from home against what will no doubt be a similarly disjointed Newcastle side. Start with one or the other and then switch later in the game. Preferably Mendy since he'll be getting less gametime than Hamza this season.

 

Frees up an extra space further forward then - you can slot one of Silva, King or James in as a CMF to keep them game-fresh ahead of the January window and we can see what Praet is all about in that advanced role without having to worry too much about being the box-to-box engine. I'd wager if his final ball is as good as it's said to be, Kelechi should get some joy.

 

Otherwise, that team is bang-on.

Well I hope we're going to take this a bit more seriously than that. That side will lose for sure.

Lincoln vs Everton the televised match on the Wednesday. 

Good, and correct, choice.

I really do struggle to understand some people's logic sometimes. 

 

Moaning because we've got a dodgy cup draw yet you'd all be scrambling for tickets if we made Wembley, or at the parade if we actually won it. 

 

There is nothing wrong with this competition and we certainly are not above it just because we're a premier league brand. 

 

Aren't people moaning more because it's an arsehole to get to and Newcastle, comparative to who we could've drawn, represent a test? People want to get through and the easiest draw presents better opportunity. This is a tough draw. Nobody is sneering at the competition.

There were a few comments sneering it. 

 

I appreciate it's not a great draw and even worse it has fallen on my birthday ha.

Newport had 2 decent chances to take the lead 

I switched over to this one.

 

Was surprised that was Wilshere's first goal for the Hammers. Assist to the Newport defender.

Rodgers said there will not be "wholesale" changes for the match so I can't see  him playing a second string side.

 

Also I'm flummoxed. Many of you say you want  a cup run but then pick a second string side to play. This tie is against PL opposition.  Without some starters we could easily lose this.
