United to get relegated 

City either get incredibly lucky in every single EFL/FA Cup draw, or something dodgy is going on. Preston, Southampton and now Oxford this season. 2018/2019 it was Oxford, Fulham, Leicester

I had no real issue with the team selection tbh. Ole hasn't rotated well over the years, which has lead to injuries (Rashford, Pogba and McTominay). He put out a side good enough to win and they

Just found out Jobe Bellingham 15 (fucking hell still at school!!) was on the bench for Birmingham last night in their League Cup match. 

Would have broken the record for youngest appearance surpassing his brother who stated at 16. If he's anything like his bro sign him up!!

Really high scores in The League Cup this season.

Brentford scored 7 goals last night. 4 goals for Forss.

Burnley scored 4 goals, with all 4 goals scored by Jay Rodriguez.

City went a goal down with a very young back four and DM. Won 6-1 in the end. Cole Palmer with a nice solo goal.

Clean sheet for Liverpool thanks to a penalty save from Kelleher. Another heavy defeat for Norwich. 0-3.

People long argued it's an experimental competition and to a degree I follow that logic. For example SAF used it to field lots of our youngsters with just a couple of seniors in those very early rounds. Thing is we could do that we were successful and had not been in a barren phase.

OK we fielded 11 internationals yesterday but at present Solskjaer has delusions of grandeur in that this competition may be beneath him. This shows him up for the complete wankstain he is. Mourinho and Guardiola took/take this competition seriously as it's a trophy albeit the least important. City 4 on the spin still want it which shows that hunger KDB, Mahrez, Foden, Torres and Sterling all played the other night with a mixture of U23's and squad player's whereas our manager thinks a disjointed XI with has beens and without any real confidence of late could stroll out and win.

Even some of our fanbase think it's a Mickey Mouse trophy..fucking rain check we haven't won anything since 2017!! this would be a start to build that winning mentality Solskjaer bangs on about.

Makes my skin crawl listening to him these days. Anyway the draw which shows our 3 main league contenders still in it.

Chelsea v Southampton

Arsenal v Leeds

Stoke v Brentford

West Ham v Man City

Leicester v Brighton

Burnley v Tottenham

QPR v Sunderland

Preston v Liverpool

He put out a side good enough to win and they failed. That's not just down to them. It's the setup. The system. How they're coached. We don't create enough high quality chances and often outperform our xG. It really is hero ball with the likes of Bruno and Greenwood scoring goals from low quality chances and difficult scenarios.

West Ham sat back for most of the game last night and we barely laid a glove on them. Their was one good chance for Greenwood after coming on. vdB was robbed of an assist there. Apart from that, it was mainly shots from distance.

Mata nearly scored an outrageous goal. But again, that is a low quality chance and more a case of individual brilliance. Great save from Areola.

The team is streaky and only plays well for short spells in games.
