Well, the fixtures for the new season are almost out, but before that, we have the 1st round draw for the League Cup. As per, the draw is regionalised and seeded. Unless someone can find the info, I can't see any confirmation as to who is in the north and south pots bar the obvious teams.

Here are the splits I think are likely:

Northern Seeded(18): Barnsley, Blackburn, Blackpool, Bolton, Bradford, Burnley, Chesterfield, Fleetwood, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds, Middlesborough, Preston, Rochdale, Rotherham, Sheff U, Sheff W, Wigan

Northern Unseeded(17): Accrington, Bury, Carlisle, Crewe, Doncaster, Hartlepool, Morecambe, Oldham, Port Vale, Scunthorpe, York. Burton, Coventry, Mansfield, Notts C, Shrewsbury, Walsall

Southern Seeded(18): Brentford, Brighton, Bristol C, Cardiff, Charlton, Fulham, Gillingham, Ipswich, Millwall, MK Dons, QPR, Reading, Swindon. Notts F, Derby, Peterborough, Wolves, Birmingham

Southern Unseeded(19): Wimbledon, Barnet, Bristol R, Cambridge, Colchester, Crawley, Dag & Red, Exeter, Leyton O, Luton, Newport, Northampton, Oxford, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Southend, Stevenage, Wycombe, Yeovil

Teams in bold I'm not sure about, could be in either pot. Last season, we had a 17 North/19 South split between the 72 teams. Season before, it was 18/18.

Not sure how they'll get the match ups right, but I think we are looking at some bizarre draws tomorrow, mostly for those teams in the midlands.

Anyway, that aside, who do you want to see your side get? One of the easier seeds/unseeded teams? A decent away draw? A reasonable home game?

Me personally, I wouldn't mind Middlesborough or Hull away, never done either of those 2 grounds. Plenty of winnable draws to be had too. Looking forward to this tomorrow, lets hope we get a decent draw.

If we have to have an away game, I'd like Cambridge, Orient or Barnet. Otherwise, any at home will suffice.

Blackpool at home, decent chance to progress and draw Sjoke @ the Shitania in round 2.

I couldn't give a shit who we get. The first round is pretty uneventful with wank crowds. Probably get sheff Utd away again..

Don't really mind but I'd quite like Barnet just to give Martin Allen a round of applause.

Other than that it'll be nice not to have Brizzle City.

Wolves in the Southern draw :lol:

Walsall are in the Northern Draw yet they are south of Wolves geographically. Maybe it's because of the seeding.

somewhere I've never been before was the hope, not a ground where we are utter shite

Out of the unseeded pile, only Accrington, Morecambe and York would have been half-decent and nah, Crewe are fucking shite.

We will play a reserve team either way.

Reading at home is decent enough, I feel like we haven't played Reading for years so it's nice to have a bit of fresh opposition. Winnable as well.

Meh played Burnley in it three seasons back. Maybe an outside bet for TV with them coming down from Prem but other than that not the best draw.
