The Capital One Cup then. The boss’ selection will be interesting given the fact that Manchester United are lying in wait to pounce Saturday teatime. That said, it is Carlisle. Our opponents are currently 10th in the NPower League 1. To perhaps give you a reference point Orient are 14th in the same division.
The Yanited vs Toon game is the one on the telly here in the UK but it’s difficult to believe our game will be featured anywhere other than on the wireless [clicky].
Last night’s games were a mixed bag. Cheatski battered Wolves 6-0, Swansea beat Crawley Town 2-3, Southampton kept the train a rollin’ with a 2-0 at home to Sheffield Wednesday. There were two comedy results of course. Manchester City the current Premier League Champions were beaten at home by European giants Aston Villa. What made my night was West Ham getting walloped by Wigan 1-4. This was gold; Fat Sam’s programme notes told the Primark Posse he felt this was cup they could win.
I won’t bother you with a chalkboard, but I do think this game will see some significant changes. Given it’s Carlisle I would be happy enough to unleash the likes of Cudicini, Dawson, Jenas, Livermor and Huddlestone. I want us to field decent teams in all competitions, but this may well be a mud, blood and guts affair. So at this level we just need everyone we need for the weekend to come home with all their limbs attached.

Ha ha – best response to “first” I’ve ever read
Beating Chelsea in the final a few years ago was a moment I’ll never forget. Capital One? Do the winners get a reduced interest rate on their card?
you mellowing Harry? Jen*s got the full 5 letter treatment.
Oh dear. What was I thinking?!
I may need exorcising.
get down the gym then.
YOU MEAN *****.
Livermore is injured. Hernia op. 3 weeks away from fitness.
Lloris, Smith, Caulker, Dawson, Townsend, Carroll, THudd, Mason, Sigurdsson, Falque, Dempsey 4-2-3-1. Have a strong bench if needed
Wouldn’t be surprised to see this at all but I think Jenas will be picked ahead of Carroll as you Thomas is a bit lightweight. It’s between Gomes and Cudicini between the sticks though, I hear. I’d also like to see Townsend play on the left wing, I know we’re short of left backs but I’d stick Walker there, get him practicing a bit of defence, he’ll get torn apart at Old Trafford playing like he has so far.
id rather Townsend on the wing aswell myself to inject a bit of pace, just screwed having both LB’s injured
