Good luck to Notts and Luton going into extra time, I agree, penalty was ridiculous. Hopefully you can join us in the third round. Commiserations to Hartlepool, Pompey, Barnet, Oxford, Exeter, Northampton and York. We can just sit back and enjoy the next half hour now

Well done Carlisle. Great win.

We had a great first half but ran out of steam in the second. Olejnik had a mare unfortunately but we still can hold our heads high.

I'd love Sherwood to get knocked out tonight the daft prick. Good luck to County and Luton in extra time.

Villa score inevitably, was never going to be our night after that disgusting decision. Gut-wrenching. You play like that against Premier League opposition and some c*** with a whistle gives a decision like that and robs you of it all. Ah well.

Massive credit to Curle tonight, a few people (myself included) were a bit sceptical of his line-up, but it's worked very well against a solid Championship side, albeit with 10 changes.

I'd like a big side away, or a home match in the 3rd round.

It's a lot of changes, but they're all players I wouldnt have a problem with coming into our starting 11 next weekend say. The left back cost several million can you believe.

This is a fixture that litters our history and a club we've had many memories with, it deserves respect, a strong side and and hopefully a good game.
Well ... that shows I know nowt !

Very harsh on Notts... put everything into the game and I guess we're now just seeing Villa's superior fitness get them over the line, but they shouldn't have been given the opportunity.

Luton look to be going to pens.

Got to give credit where credit's due: Stoke have done magnificently well to take a massive club like Barceluton to penalties.

A usually reliable ITK on the Luton forum has just sent a fax through to me saying that a Bojan + £20m direct swap has been agreed in return for Mackail Smith, to be announced in the middle of penalties.

Are we actually the only League 2 team through then? I'm ready for a shit draw and a dull, narrow loss in the next round.

oooh, hard luck Luton... excellent shoot-out... shame that just one saved penalty from your 8th choice penalty-taker has been the difference.

And we find ourselves now as the only L2 team left in the competition, and in fact I think Walsall are the only L1 team at the moment, though Port Vale could be following them.

Massive shock here as the 90,000 Luton fans head home in disbelief at their massive clubs failure to beat the minnows from Stoke at their own dum...ground. The League Cup eh?! Crazy.
