    As far as bad ideas go this is right up there, the draw for the First round of the Carabao Cup is to be held at a supermarket. Yet they wonder why the teams no longer take tia competition seriously.

    Jesus wept.

    They want shooting. Seriously.

    When interest in the Cup competitions is seemingly at an all-time low, they come up with a stunt like this.

I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Would be more interesting if they'd got Glen Johnson to make the draw

    I work 15mins' walk from Morrisons Colindale. Great news! It's biggest thing to happen in the area since Taco Bell opened up opposite the Tube station.

    As bad as that idea is, drawing the EFL Cup in a supermarket, I just can't stand John Barnes, so the whole idea is just appalling and a nonsense.

    Don't understand why. It's not like the draw is a LONDIS-tance away?

    You’d think the supporters would be more Co-Operative?

    I'd like to hear Morrisons as to why they think it's worth it.

    The people whose idea this was are insane. Bury's not in the draw are they?

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Apparently Danny Rose is supposed to be doing the draw but it'll be delayed. His agent just messaged the overseers "Wait! Rose will be late!"

    I think we'll draw Aldishot Town.

    I heard that the reason for the location choice is because shoppers are one of the Football League's Key Markets.

    Apparently as Barnes is stuck in Cornwall, Martin Keown is stepping in.
