EFL Cup draw (Everton away)

It is a little demotivating that even if we win 3 of the so called top 6 will be waiting. 

 

What looked like a fantastic opportunity beforehand has once again landed in favour of the big clubs. 

 

Everton can beat anyone on their day so it should be a good game. Can’t help but feel like we won’t play our strongest team though. 

After the team we put out for Newcastle, I can't imagine Brendan would play the reserves in the quarterfinals. Especially with all the talk about taking the cups seriously.

This was perhaps before he considered that top 4 could be a real possibility, I hope youre right.

why do people keep saying the odds are 16/1 to be drawn away four times on the trot?

The odds are 15/1

No. There are 16 possible combinations of which only 1is a-a-a-a. So the chance of just 1 in 16.

Yes 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 X 1/2 = 1/16 is 16:1

I’ve got a feeling he’s right though. The probability is 1 in16, but the odds are 15 to 1. I’d need a pen and paper. My poor old brain can’t cope with this sort of thing any more.

So as a fanbase weve banged on about winning a cup for a few years yet last year at HOME to Manchester City, we didnt sell out at £15 a ticket. So if us as fans arent taking it seriously why should the players? Well hopefully with BR in charge we do. 

 

We all want that Wembley trip like massively. 

 

£20 for Everton away quarter final is brilliant. We could have an allocation of up to 6,000 like other teams have had. 

 

In reality... £20 with around 2300 Leicester there.... I hope I'm proved wrong :)

Don't really understand why you are saying no,  and then confirming my statement.

I suppose it is easy to get mixed up with odds and probability.

Not happy with that draw really. Think it's absolutely nailed on for penalties.

Pretty confident with us playing well at the minute that we sellout the standard 3,000 allocation easy. Hopefully we get more and I think those will sell too, might be slow near the end but interest is constant right until matchday.

Knowing our ticket office we will probably take a reduced allocation again.

Hopefully not. I did drop them an email yesterday mentioning the fact that they seem to underestimate our following, especially once something hits general sale and that Palace in particular was a bad decision to take a smaller allocation. Got a reply saying they would take a look with future fixtures. I understand there are many factors when considering allocations to take. Surely losing some money is not that much of a loss considering our fans should be first. Obviously if we play Newcastle in Round 2, taking 10,000 tickets is not sensible. But the way we are now playing, with the success and the good feeling around the club, the away following is there and if it continues, every game will sell out.

 

Having said that, for this particular match, it is also down to Everton. I believe rules state they only have to give us 2,000 but they will more likely give us the normal PL allocation of 3,000. They nearly sold out against Watford and I am sure they will fill the ground for this one. So they will want to avoid giving us more tickets than we are entitled to.

Depends whether or not picked for live broadcast by Sky. All PL tie, but then again they may go for the chance of a giant killing/thrashing with one of the others ('pool game likely to be deferred due to the world club cup or whatever its called). Its along way to travel on a "school day" midweek evening fixture. (3 hour drive each way). That said, I can see us taking a good contingent as we are getting towards the business end of the competition now.
