A bit of common sense applied after listening to feed back. They were very lucky last season , not many clubs would have taken the amount of support to the final that Coventry did .

It certainly helped but the final was always going to be well attended. Looking at the category 1 clubs Im guessing we'll get either Leicester or stoke.

No boycott this year, with 23 or 24 good players in our squad we should do well.

As we'll be Championship bound in the next couple of years I think it's only right that we adopt the mindset of the big boys & say raspberry Div 3 & 4 the sooner they are filled with 'B' teams of proper clubs in the top two divisions the better. All the more £££ for us big boys.

No reason to boycott now because we've got the majority of what we wanted - less travel time & more local derbies.

Looking forward to the extra local derbies and this competition will be even more important for us with such a strong squad enabling Evans to give the fringe players a meaningful game. It also brings in additional revenue which is not to be sniffed at. To boycott is just a slap in the face to our owner who has breathed unbelievable life into our club.

Does this mean that we could have Rooney playing against us? They only have to have 6 U21 players in their team.

Do you really think they would risk him in a Checkatrade game?

Im hoping we don't risk any of our preferred first 11, I'd imagine you have 2 hopes of seeing Rooney (one being Bob)
We think the same things at the same time
We just can't do anything about it

Do we know when the games are being played. Also I believe Everton are one of 2 teams we have never played in a competitive match so that will only leave Man U from the top 4 divisions. How many other teams can claim that.

I would imagine Swansea, Northampton & Notts County have all played them too.
