Someone please tell me why we're playing either Bristol side and it's to be determined in a match involving only one of them????????????

 

Sc**thorpe v Cardiff or Bristol City

Chelsea v Bristol Rovers or Bristol City

 

Why isn't it Sc**thorpe vs Bristol City and us simply playing the winners of the 1st round game of Bristol Rovers vs Cardiff??

Something to do with seeding apparently. All very confusing. Got to wonder why they didn't just do the draw after tomorrow's game?

Ha, it's been so long since we played in the 2nd round, i forgot all about it  :biggrin:

It's been 20 years to be precise, when we played Blackpool in the 2nd round of what was known as the Coca-Cola Cup back in the 1996-1997 season.

Out of curiosity (since Leicester won last season), I think that year Leicester won the Coca-Cola Cup, I lived there for a few months that year and watched the final (I think they went to replay) in a pub surrounded by Leicester fans. I have to admit it was good fun, from what I remember...

So, does that mean we face Bristol City?

 

Rovers... along with Melksham Town they're as good as my second team so I'm looking forward to it. Rovers have had a mixed few years getting relegated to the National League followed by successive promotions back to League 1 so to now be visiting the Bridge is testament to the progress they've made under Darrell Clarke.

The Gas are coming to the Bridge. I am a lifelong Rovers and Chelsea fan. I know it sounds silly to have two clubs but Rovers are my hometown team and Chelsea are (thanks to the legend Peter Osgood my London side). I am absolutely made up that they are finally coming to the Bridge. I mentioned to Wendy(our chaperone) on my stadium tour 3 weeks ago that i can only dream of this happening. It may only be the league cup but it means so much to me. Up the Gas and come on Chelsea!!

Yes, Leicester won the League Cup in 1997 against Middlesbrough.

I didn't realise how soon we'd be involved in this. Seems like a perfect opportunity to give the youth a run-out (although it's hard to predict a lineup without knowing who exactly will go out on loan); to what extent does everyone think we'll give starts to the youngsters?

 

As far as the senior players go, I assume Begovic will start, possibly Moses too. I think we can bank on seeing Aina, Loftus-Cheek, and Chalobah (assuming the latter is still with us).
