    Default League Cup first round draw

    Tomorrow at 10.00am.

    We've obviously been seeded, so will play any team from the bottom half of the football league (details in the link).

    Got a feeling that this year is our year.

    Apparently it'll be a North South divide, as when I tweeted that I wanted Exeter at home, the club responded by stating of the divide. I wasn't sure if this was confirmed or not, but for the first round it probably is.

    Be nice to draw Colchester away. Very selfish of me, it's just a short trip down the road.

    Notts County please. Home or Away, I don't mind.

    Does your girlfriend by any chance support Exeter?

    So for this draw we are considered 'north'? They keep changing their minds, I'm sure one year we were in the 'north' section and Notts were in the 'south'.

    An away tie near London would be good. The last league cup game I went to was Wycombe away, almost 4 years ago now

    Would love County. I remember the game when McClaren was in charge was a cracker.

    Burton Albion away please. Gives us a chance to look at our next manager in the home teams dug-out

    I almost added a little reference to this at the end of my post especially in light of the Tom Nichols thread

    To be honest, Notts County at home or away would be pretty good too. I think we'll get Doncaster.

    Douglas will put a weakened team out to rest our stars for the promotion push.

    There was a North South divide last year.

    The article linked above confirms the divide this year -

    For the Round 1 draw, the seeded teams will be split into two regional groups (based predominantly on a ‘North’ and ‘South’ split), and drawn against an unseeded team from the equivalent pot on a random home or away basis.

    I'm sure one year we were north and Notts were South

    Maybe they were short of unseeded teams in the south.

    Depending on the 'divide' I'd like us to get AFC Wimbledon away.

    Surely it'd have been the other way around?

    You'd think but it wasn't. I think this was JPT era so could've been a seeded/non-seeded issue.

    Yeah it will be, and just like sometimes being in North or sometimes being in South seeds, it depends on other teams promoted/relegated into/from the Premier League and Conference. We're right on the divide so switch if necessary.

    The little petals will get blisters if they play too often.
