Liverpool and Man Utd to play teams:

Looking at it objectively, all top 6 Premier League clubs now participate and the clubs see the benefits for their young players. I know fans hate the concept but it's here to stay. It could attract a whole new generation of fans to Brunton Park. Kids might come to their first ever football match in their Liverpool or Man U shirts and enjoy the experience. They won't get the chance every fortnight to watch these teams so they could end up regularly supporting Carlisle as well.

As long as proper lower league clubs get to the final I can see some positives to look forward to.

For all those Man United and Liverpool supporting kids the draw for the first round will take place in July. (I wonder if the shop will be open on that date).

The first round is the first week in September (excepting U21 teams who can pick their own date).

I'll be there if I'm in the country. Don't hate man u reserves any more or less than I hate Mansfield or Cheltenham. See someone different. All the predictions of us being replaced in the league by Stoke reserves have proved to be hot air. Would be good if we could win a game

For all those, like me, who hate what they have done and boycott, where do we go from here ? They will continue to ignore us and walk all over us and the competition will continue... and probably attract the next generation of kids who have no concern for history or lower division clubs.

I'm not afraid of change or progress but this is morally wrong.
When I was young, relegation and promotion, club size, history, status, potential... they all mattered. Not now. Without exaggeration, the children I have taught for years, know little to nothing about any club outside the top 6 in the PL. Crazy.
Sad too. In their eyes, there isn't a 92. There is a 20. Maybe even a 10 at best. That's football in 2019 I'm afraid.

Did I read that the club have been asked for a fan to represent the club at the cup launch? I really hope we don't get one. That would send a message again.
Typical thay man United and liverpool have decided to join. It will soon just be a premier league reserve competition.

To "fall out" with someone, don't you have to like/respect them at some point first?

You said not enough people died at Hillsborough, that I should have been one of them, and you called me "wireface". Feel free to apologise at any point.

I was of the same opinion.

I wouldn’t go but you can’t begrudge someone if they maybe have a kid wanting to go and end up going.

Yeah, it’s 2 faced and these are the things the EFL prey upon and can get away with their crazy ways but it ain’t going to stop.

I doubt an u23 side will get to the final but if/when they do will be interesting what happens crowd wise.

If I had a kid and it went to an EFL Trophy under 23 match i’d ground it for a month.

Not as many times as I would have liked, a great home or away fixture.

Plus at the back of your mind you always think that you might get something out of the game - they now probably feel the same about us :)

Third Season in a row, mainly because the EFL ‘group’ together teams that are close by each other for the Group Stages now.

We also played Morecambe in 13/14, when it was a proper Draw.

Is that when we played in the Estonia strip at the Carwash?

I remember Kavanagh creating divots by spinning round on one leg looking for a pass. Mind he did that every game.

I might have known we'd get the least attractive U23 team. It just rubs it in that not so long ago we were playing Wolves in League 1. Not much football fortune from the Trophy then this season.

Looks like a fixed draw to me keeping Sunderland/Newcastle apart and also Portsmouth/Southampton but when you think about it they might have shot themselves in the foot given that if there were ever to be a decent attendance in this competition it would likely come from these two.

The sooner this goes back to Tier 3&4 clubs only the better.

We should get in touch with all fans groups of D3/4 and the top 16 of the conference and organise our own fans club competitions to be played on the same evening as these piddly little games and then as fans we can all go and watch each other and show the EFL what they are missing out on and how to organise draws fairly and properly and OPENLY

There’s non league teams a lot further south than Wolves playing in the Northern structure. Think Oxford City were at one point. Dunno if the still are.
