  1. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    This is a @MDK-free zone --- So, a total crap-shoot as always in trying to pick who may be able to pull off a promotion campaign. Let's say Fulham, Leeds and Nottingham Forest. That would be rather good.

  3. The announcement of the revamped tournament sort of flew under the radar as in typical FA incompetent fashion, they announced it on the opening day of Euro 2016. The tournament has now been restructured to feature 64 teams, the 48 teams from League One and Two and 16 U21 teams from teams with Category One academies, which are: Arsenal Chelsea Everton Leicester Liverpool Man City Middlesborough Newcastle Southampton Stoke City Sunderland Swansea Spurs WBA West Ham TBC (since Man Utd declined to participate) These teams will have to play six U21 players in their teams throughout the tournament. Group Stage rules Sixteen groups of 4 teams will be organised on a regionalised basis. All groups will include one invited club and at least one club from each of Leagues One and Two. All clubs will play each other once, either home or away. Invited clubs will play one home game at the club's first team stadium. Clubs will be awarded 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. In the event of a drawn game (after 90 minutes), a penalty shootout will be held with the winning team earning an additional point. The top two teams will progress to the Knockout Stage. I've been saying for years that the League Cup should have been U21 or U23 for PL teams for years, so I'm quite interested to see how this format works out and whether it opens up any opportunities for academy players to force their way into first team contention.
