Quite like Burton, a little secondary side of mine. If Walsall are away and it's a stupidly far away game then I occasionally pop down to the Pirelli. Wonder if Leeds will have the legs to take this to penalties or not, that's the only way I can see them getting anything.

Excellent stuff from Bradford. Two cracking goals. David Hockaday doesn't look happy and now the Leeds fans have kicked off.

No surprise to see Leeds fans kicking up a fuss again! Thought they did okay to be honest, they just can't keep 11 players on the pitch at the moment.

With an away draw to Liverpool, I can't wait to go and taste the atmosphere again and see it give our players a much deserved boost, win or lose, to see the type of crowds that they can attract if we do get promoted this time of asking!

Will definitely be going. Words can't describe the excitement! Anyone think we can perform an upset?

I'm expecting Liverpool to really go for this. They need a positive performance.

I'm unsure to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised to see the likes of Markovic, Lallana and Lambert play, perhaps Lucas but the rest will probably be kids. I would be surprised if Sterling, Gerrard, Moreno etc play because of the fixture clog up with The Champions League, Premier League and International duty coming up between now and mid October.

Drama at Anfield, late in the day. Boro make it 2-2 from a Sterling mistake and Bamford penalty. Toure looked like a lumbering oaf.

Afc Bournemouth
#17
Bournemouth travelled to Wales to play Cardiff in the 3rd round of the League Cup and were leading the Welsh team by 3-0 after 30mins. It ended that way and it was Gosling who got two of them meaning he has scored in every cup fixture since joining Bournemouth giving him a record of played 3 scored 4.
Its fair to say both teams were out of form but it was Bournemouth who progressed comfortably and it could have been more with a disallowed goal and Arter smashing the bar! As expected both teams made changes to keep key players fit for Saturdays leagues fixtures.
It is the first time in 51 years the south coast club have the last 16 and could potentially face Chelsea, Liverpool and neighbours Southampton.
Goal Scorers: Gosling (2), Daniels.

So then, another round down. Here is the next round draw.

Spurs vs Brighton
Stoke vs Southampton
Bournemouth vs West Brom
Shrewsbury vs Chelsea
Liverpool vs Swansea
MK Dons vs Sheffield United
Manchester City vs Newcastle
Fulham vs Derby


So, a fantastic draw for Shrewsbury but you would expect City and Chelsea to go through with Liverpool also looking likely. Not sure I fancy spurs or the Albion.

I think it was a cup record, not 100% sure though. I didn't think anybody would ever miss at one point. Adomah has admitted today he though that liverpool had to take another penalty to win it, even if he missed!
