Couldnt get Bristol out second v Utd. Must have had 3 tries so far26th October 2017 at 5:52 pm #6651
Sorry got it wrong. Its Bristol away. Total fix as usual. One word FARCE.
After one home game. Away againto a premier league team.
Absolute joke26th October 2017 at 5:59 pm #6653

100% Adlab we all knew the swamp dwellers would get Bristol AND we would be away to a PL side.
Absolute sham I bet they will be on tv and live broadcast all radio stations as well-
The reason “ there could be an upset”.
Next Maureen will be telling us it’s a valid competition to win as they are almost guaranteed at least a semifinal berth.
FA = JOKE,,,26th October 2017 at 7:00 pm #6660
platt, to be fair it’s the League Cup and has nothing to do with the FA.?
Fabulous draw for Bristol City .26th October 2017 at 7:14 pm #6663
so the draw was delayed for 2 hours, it then turns out it was pre-recorded and all the big 4 teams left in avoided each other. this is absolutely disgraceful. they’ve now resorted to not showing it live as it makes it easier to fix and guarantees they get the fixtures they want. i would expect there to be big protests over this.26th October 2017 at 8:38 pm #6664

Definite farce, but we are quite capable of beating Leicester away especially as their board undoubtely want PL survival more than a trophy. Would rather them than Chelsea or United away.

Paxton. Spot on.The whole thing is a set up.Utd v Bristol? You could guarantee it.27th October 2017 at 8:54 am #6679
I just don’t buy the whole conspiracy that says Utd are given easy draws to get them through. I can absolutely understand the concerns that people have about it appearing that the bigger sides are kept apart but the Utd conspiracy falls apart as soon as you look to the previous round.
City at home to a Championship side
Chelsea at home to a PL side
Spurs at home to a PL side
Arsenal at home to a PL side
So Utd were the only one of the big sides to be drawn away to a PL side in the last round, hardly a sign of trying to give Utd easy draws! Lucky this round, absolutely, but not in the previous round where City got the easiest draw of the big sides. You win some, you lose some fellas! City should have more than enough to get past Leicester anyway27th October 2017 at 9:59 am #668927th October 2017 at 4:36 pm #6712
Editor try looking at our previous draws. If memory serves it is 11 out of 12 AWAY to premier league teams. Our home match last round? Wolves top of the Championship. Then look at Utd draws in League cup,FA cup and CL. Conspiracy? Who knows. As I said before Blatter admitted Euro draws were fixed. Then there is the World Cup venues.
Then there are the Super Sunday gamex Those fixtures ARE arrangex.27th October 2017 at 5:32 pm #6715
I used to have doubts about this conspiracy theory in cup draws but yesterdays farce asks serious questions regarding its legitimacy.
Us City fans can’t moan too much about away draws: if my memory serves me right, we had a very good run of home cup draws from 2011 to around 2015. I distinctly remember thinking at the time it was costing me a fortune as both me and my son in all cup schemes.
