I'd do a Gary Speed if you were my father.

Now, when are you going to back up your comment about Millwall's trouble at Everton?

Pretty sad that there is an FA Cup Final black out down under this season . By all accounts the Watford / Wolves semi final was a great game .

What is the matter with you people. Just get a VPN which costs about $5 a month and you can stream BBC. I still watch MOTD from time to time, even though I think Lineker is a pillock.

It was on Fox ESPN 508 this morning. The program list actually had something else programmed. The lack of EPL on Fox has me more concerned. I watched Everton v Arsenal on my computer. Everton should have won at least 3:0. Missed some sitters.

The French have the Coupe de la Ligue & Coupe de France. (so League Cup & FA Cup).

Portugal has a 2nd cup I think, but no European qualification from that.

its limited to the football league clubs (non conference) and provides opportunity for additional revenue for those clubs who get knocked out the fa cup early.

used to be called fa cup and league cup.reason, english football is ran by 2 mobs, the football association and the football league. both wanted their own comps. dunno why they changed to carabao. now, does anyone know why the utd channel will finish on fox at the end of the month and where we can see it in future. :?:

As far as i understand English football has 4 tiers 1 being the 20 clubs in the premiership.2 being the Football League which governs the championship+league 1 & league 2 all having 24 teams in each league.So that would be the top 92 clubs,then there is the National League.The FA cup lets teams in all the way down to the 10th tier,so now what i am saying is isnt it better to get rid of the championship cup,increase the prize money of it,& not over premier league clubs with bs games.With the new UEFA NATIONS LEAGUE in place players will get mega-injuries playing that many games through a season.The Carabao cup only covers 4 leagues,not all ones lower anyway,i would keep it ,but exclude premier league clubs to prevent injuries.

Carabao because it's the sponsor. Same as it was the Milk Cup, Rumbelows Cup, Littlewoods Cup, Coca Cola Cup.....

United channel - don't know, don't care.
