 In tomorrows league cup draw we  will face either AFC Wimbledon, Barnet, Bristol Rovers, Cheltenham Town, Colchester United, Crawley Town, Exeter, Leyton Orient, Luton, Newport, Oxford, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Southend, Stevenage, Swindon, Wycombe Wanderers, or Yeovil. As they are the unseeded teams .

Norwich and Newcastle are already through to the next round.  

I knew we would get Luton

There is still a month to go in the transfer window, but any new players will need to fit into the squad and team.
The time to integrate new players is pre-Season, but that time has been lost. Any new players will now have to fit in immediately, otherwise we will not have a team out on the pitch, but a bunch of strangers trying to play together.

Watch a few minutes of the first half.  Nothing to write home about as others have said......  And to think we played worse on the weekend against boro.

First half was poor, second decent. Fulham played good and balanced game for full 94 minutes. Newcastle showed just nothing. It´s gonna be a long season for Rafa. Matt Ritchie was quality, otherwise, nothing. Fulham´s best was Denis Odoi, took a stupid yellow in the first, but was their heart & soul in the second.

We surely can start the campaign better than Newcastle, can we ? Tested my 30 euros/month Viaplay-connection, wonderful quality, must say. Hopefully they will feature a couple of Villa-games this season, althought it´s not very often they show Championship-games.
