👏 🎉 Carabao! Football Thread

Festive football is over, kids, so it’s time for the magic of the Cup.

Liverpool derby kicks things off on the box tonight, whilst in the other game, the red hot favourites easily overcome plucky underdogs Manchester United. Discuss these and other fixtures and things below.

I’ll say it. I don’t really care for the FA Cup.

Aye, very much so, not entirely sure where he fits in mind you.

My mob, Bolton, are playing Huddersfield at the Macron. Should be a tight game Now that Bolton have strung a few results together.

Plays in similar areas to hazard I guess.

this and should nicely stop them bringing through some of their own talented youngsters as well :confused:

I don’t think I need to, I trust you will remember.

5 Ross Barkleys = 1 VVD


Just spent a couple of minutes trying to work out who WD would be, then it clicked!

They’ve got Loftus-Cheek so I’m not sure why they really need him. But if that means we can keep Loftus-Cheek for longer thats fine by me.

First visit to Old Trafford for 15 years later. Last time I was there I saw Beckham, Giggs, Scholes, Van Nizzleroy, Keane et al beat Soton 6-1 (Pahars scored and Strachan was manager)

What do I realistically expect today? If we have a decent go and score at least once.
