    First half against Dale was an eye opener for them. They could win it if they see off Sunderland. I see the microwave has been fixed!

    Anyone know the date of the Sunderland game? It says it's the week of 21st Jan but can't see tickets up for sale yet. Might try to get to this as a NE blue (and having just got my ticket for Newcastle away, that'd be two games in 2 weeks).

    Date arranged so we can’t play the kids against Burton.

    Cheers fellas.....
    We are struggling of late...scraping d aww, and occasional wins....if we can pull off a win tomorrow, on paper, it gets us out of a tough run of games.

    Totally agree that an early season trophy like this isn't too much of a distraction, given the time still left post Feb

    The winners of this tie will go on to win this trophy. Sunderland are a strong team. To beat them will take some doing. Also surprising that Chelsea went out last night.

    Scheduling just one of those things I guess although no doubt we will be given lots of crap in the media about it.

    Would it make sense for Foden to play against Sunderland or Burton? - I think he would learn more from the Sunderland game (and increase our chances of winning it) than the dead rubber Carabao game but maybe it would be portrayed negatively as he is a first teamer.
