I think thats why someone like Poch isnt too bothered with this competition

If we win this competition - what would that prove really? Then again we did play premier league teams in our run
TBH I wish they would just do away with this cup, its become a burden for most PL teams. Obviously I hope we win it this year just to get this 'we need a trophy' off our backs but I want it gone. Give the players some more rest.

This is the result when PL teams don't take the comp seriously. You would have thought a few teams would like a shot at a trophy but the threat of relegation is to much for some for them to waste time on the competition.
The thought of getting ejected from the PL/Sky tv rights club petrifies those near the trapdoor. Even with a parachute payment. The getting back is so hard now..

Didnt they consider a while back to have PL teams eliminated and have this as a competition for the Championship and below - i think that would be ok

Akin tot he FA Trophy

Personally, I'm hoping City fold again this weekend against whoever they play against...

Theyre playing Wolves on monday I think so they wont fuck up like we did and will win that

Liverpool away against Brighton - hope Brighton batter them

It wouldn't hurt to omit the Champions League clubs for the Carabao, maybe chuck in a CL place for the FA Cup winner though, to make it more appealing.

Personally think the clubs in Europe shouldn’t be in it.

What annoys me more is why the semi final needs to be 2 legs? Really pointless and adds another needless game to a needless cup.

All PL teams shouldnt be in it and I would still have a Europa league place as a prize because lets be honest most teams hardly take that seriously either, even though there is a CL spot prize if you win.

9-0 up and barely anyone in the ground.

Manchester City are a vile joke of a club.

Can guarantee Old Trafford would be packed out right now - all that nonsense City fans peddle about being the most popular club among Mancunians is total bollocks.
