As with every other season if we exit the group stage I am perfectly happy in fact would totally endorse us doing that. The injury risk is just not worth it.

Drawing out Stockport would have been more interesting I guess if Jim Gannon was still their manager. Don’t think we’ve come up against him since his rather erm ill-fated spell in charge.

The only points in favour of going on in the competition for me is giving the fringe players/promising youngsters more competitive football and decent blood prize money. I can't see any others unless it can be a scouting opportunity for loans I guess but that could easily be achieved in other ways.

I enjoy the games (on ifollow) as its one I am not to fussed about winning so can actually enjoy watching, it works for us as we have a squad where we've made it fairly consistent so we are still fairly strong in it with the changes.

We've only failed to progress from the group stage once (the first one) so from that aspect its a good exercise, although losing Gibbons at Wigan a couple of years back for the season in one wasnt so great.

I just dont get the B teams though, we absolutely walloped Liverpool the past two seasons 4-2 and 5-0, in the 4-2 they had Millar who was the one who kept them in it and they are literally men v boys, like a training game in most cases. We've beaten every B Team we've faced with mostly relative ease.

The only two that we've faced that have noticeably been quite good were Villa last season in our group and Chelsea in the knockout rounds a few years back when they had Caballero in goal, Batshuayi up top, Kenedy etc etc in their team.

Expect we'll play as many of our development squad as possible, and will get an early exit.

Good for the dev squad to get some competitive football though, and if we pick up some cash along the way then great.
