Will they just stay down south after the arsenal match?
Shame we’re not playing city or Liverpool on the weekend after rather than Burnley. Hopefully tiredness doesn’t hit us.
I imagine that we’ll go with the same philosophy as Crewe, plenty of changes from our premier league line up. Brighten made eleven changes so it’s likely to be a question of whose got the better squad depth and hopefully it’s ya.

Play our strongest team or at least have them available on the bench (e.g. SJM/ Grealish/ Wesley) with a mix of a few squad members pushing for the first team in the starting 11 and let's see Brighton off. Let's please take the cups seriously.

As people have said not a great draw - but equally winnable with the right team selection and attitude.

I hope at some point we're a team others are desperate to avoid. It seems like ages since we had a decent run in either of the cups.

They were one of my tips to go down. If we put out a fairly strong team, we shouldn't have anything to fear.

God, I would do love to see us win a cup again. I hope we give it a proper go.

I can’t see with what is wrong with the starting selection in pre season games - start with our strongest selection and then use the subs when job is done

Graham Scott has been appointed ref for the match on Wednesday.
Was the ref for Villa at WBA second leg play off .
And as it's a match at premier league ground VAR will be in operation

Reminder*
All rounds in this cup are single-leg match and that's throughout, except in the semi-finals.
Remember no Extra-time played in all rounds except for the final, with matches going straight to penalty shoot-outs if the scoreline is a draw.

The live Sky game is MK Dons v Liverpool, so looks like just highlights on Quest (*sigh*) at 10.30

Portsmouth v Southampton is the live Tuesday night game. I honestly think Brighton v Villa is the most attractive Wednesday fixture. Certainly better than MK Dons v a Liverpool second XI. Plus The SKY team would only have to shift their equipment down the South Coast.

I live near MK and it's a conflict of interest for lots of MK Dons fans as they support both teams

there will be more day trippers and tourists there than at the Trevi Fountain
