Recommended Posts

18/08/2020 : The 1st Round of the Season 2020-2021 Football League Cup (North and South Sections) is scheduled to start on Saturday 5th September. All EPL teams not involved in Europe join in the 2nd Round and the Euro EPL teams will join in the 3rd Round. The Semi-finals have been changed from Home and Away legs to one-off matches.

I will start to log the League Cup matches from the 2nd Round, when Aston Villa joins the competition. Our games will have their League Cup match threads too.
