This games is between Wolves playing Brentford and Saints two games they will want their best eleven as 3 points will be the target each time ... can see a massively changed Wolves side for this one.

Same goes for us - game is between Chelsea and Woolwich derbies - full B team you would think.
 
Ugh, you really need the first couple of rounds of this cup to be against championship or below teams if you want have a chance of progressing far. Really tricky draw for us. Imagine a season where we’re out of Europe and the League Cup before September is out. There’ll be a lot less Spurs games then usual to watch before Christmas

Wolves are not going to be in any trouble in the league and will probably see the league cup as a trophy they can have a run at, they will be full strength I should think.
 
How romantic

Opening game vs citeh on sky after they’ve both been tapping up our player!
Next game vs Wolves.. their ex manager!

hot balls in that draw for sure
 
They're going to hate us. Took their right back, took their manager, took Traore (probably). Already done them in the league this year.

It's tricky because they'll be up for this and we might not necessarily play our strongest 11.
Late 60's/early 70's - we were a real thorn in their side.
Knocked them out of the Cup in '69, the UEFA Cup final of course in '72 - and beat them in the League Cup semi finals the following season.
Mind you, they had a very good team back then - as Leeds fan will testify, :thumbup:

Lucky team as well, they once played a game in the UEFA Cup against ADO Den Haag who scored three own goals in one half.

remember well those last 2 cup gamers. You're right, we always seemed to get the better of them even if they'd had the best of the game.

When Hunter Davies wrote the Glory Game from the 71-72 season, the first match was away at Wolves. They were 2-0 up on us until 10 mins from the end, ended 2-2.

The EUFA final they prob were the better team over 2 legs. Chivers scored an absolute belter from 30-35 yds. Mullery diving header 2nd leg.

I don’t think that they will hate us for taking Doherty off their hands somehow
 

Quarter-final draw in full​

Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham

Woolwich v Sunderland

Brentford v Chelsea

Liverpool v Leicester City
Toughie, but very winnable, should be Liverpool, Chelsea, Woolwich & Us in the semis….Last season and this season would be West Ham’s version of “modern success” It would be unthinkable if they were to actually win a trophy in that time, even the league cup….we had our “modern success” for 3 or 4 seasons under Pochettino and came away empty handed….
Leicester are going for the domestic treble under their “modern success”…
Woolwich are going for an Arteta cup double under their “modern shit show”….
Liverpool and Chelsea are just trying to win more shit….
Time we stepped up!!
