Confirmed for next Thursday at 7pm, not chosen as a TV fixture so will presumably be available if you pay a tenner again.

Had a good draw so far, would love us to get to another final again only with a win this time.

A statement from the EFL : "In accordance with Carabao Cup Rules, Tottenham Hotspur have been awarded with a bye to progress to Round Four of the Carabao Cup and will now play Chelsea on Tuesday 29 September"

Well I never.
Rather unfair considering the circumstances.

Don't worry, our new boys Odoi and Ross (with Tammy's help) will knock Spudz out and one more chance for them to win a trophy in a year ending in '1'  (when exactly was the last?) will be gone.

Typical EFL. Begging for a COVID handout from the Premier league but when it comes to helping out one of their own, Feck 'em. Rules are Rules. Talk about inflexible.

F#$king Spurs, how dare they accept that against the O's. They should immediately withdraw and accept to allow the O's to go through.

So have you seen what happens if  Villa  win this Carabo cup

The winners of this season's cup will not qualify for the Europa League as in the past, but will instead go into the Uefa Europa Conference League (UECL).

They will enter at the play-off phase, the round before the group stages.

The Europa Conference League, which will have 32 teams in the group stages, will be played on Thursday nights along with the Europa League, which is reduced from 48 to 32 teams.

The UECL groups are likely to contain teams from some of Europe's smaller countries, as well as teams who finish sixth in Spain, Italy and Germany and win the play-offs - in addition to clubs that lose their Europa League qualifiers.

The winners of the UECL qualify for the following season's Europa League.

Blimey, next thing you know there'll be a separate competition for Cup winners. Imagine that! Can't think what they'd possibly call it, mind...

Mental. So 96 teams will be in some sort of European Competition next year. Totally devaluing the whole concept.

In 1981/82, we were one of 128 clubs to play first round games.

yeah but they were league winners. I seriously can't see the point of us winning the Caribou, stretching our squad to breaking point  to compete in 4 competitions for the booby prize of a Europa place. There's clubs the british sides played last season who i'm still not entirely sure where they're from. This idea makes the CWC look like a competition for the elite.

They weren't all league winners - there were 33 clubs in the European Cup.

sorry misread it. I'm old skool so champions league should be champions (its sort of implied by the name), Europa should be 2nd and i have no problem with cup winners, but winning the caribou cup to compete in a competition probably weaker than it.........nah.
