Thread: Carabao Cup draw

  1. #1

    Default Carabao Cup draw

    Carabao Cup draw tonight at 10 ish. We're number 7 Skates number 10, only 23 teams in the southern draw so good chance we could get them :-)

    We have nothing to gain and everything to lose by drawing them at the moment.

    Why the odd number?

    It might be my advancing years but I have absolutely no recollection of last year's competition. Apparently we went out in the last 16 to Leicester?

    Still, it would be nice to play our fishy friends and win

    Sorry, you’re right of course. Please see my edit (crossed posts) I copied my list from The Mirror’s website but there was an advert just above the bottom two numbers.

    Win and Saints gain their first victory over them since 2005 and a place in the next round. I say that is something to gain!

    All the minnows will be looking at the list hoping to draw us or West Ham for a money spinning glamour tie.

    Could do with a kind draw to get us back to winning ways.

    We'll probably get Crystal Palace at home and lose.

    There's literally only one game proper Saints fans should want, and that's the inbreeding fish f*cking Skate c*nts at Fratton. Preferably without any of that noncey bubble bus stuff too.

    A midweek cup at theirs is literally the best game in football.

    21. Crawley

    Would be my picks, working in London and based on grounds I've not been to...Pompey I probably wouldn't be able to get to, so not bothered by that apart from it would be nice to beat them - though not 100% we would roll them over right now...

    Got a feeling we have a few players who would bottle it at Fratton Park.

    We have a very weird breed of new fans/premier league fans that want any excuse to bottle the walk down Goldsmith Avenue, that's fine by me though as the more of them that do the better our support will be.

    Are you suggesting we lower ourselves to Pompey fan tinpottery levels and hark on about how beating a team 2 divisions below us somehow gives us bragging rights...?

    No, but it would stop them harking on about beating a team two divisions below them.

    This is only the third time they've made the second round since 2010. Let's have them.

    Hmm... they still celebrate drawing 2-2 against us in the season they got relegated from the Championship and we got promoted to the Premier League, so I wouldn't be too sure about that! #tinpot

    Agree mush. No one intrested in that should burn thier Saints shirt and get a divorce in my opinion

    What about taking Fratton?

    We also have nippers who are unsure where Goldsmith Avenue is and loons who think the JPT is the only trophy we have won.

    Of course we f*cking should, in my lifetime we've played them 13 times, even if you go back to the 60's it only just makes it into the mid 20's.

    Any win against those c*nts should be celebrated for years, who gives a flying f*ck what division they're in. Did you celebrate any less when we beat them in 96, or in 84?

    Rubbish. This is the only game that matters to us as Saints fans.

    And we still celebrate Fratton in 84. Its not tinpot its football rivialy. I would have thought the seals in the Northam who sing about hating pompey in every song would relish the opportunity to play them and express thier hatred in person.

    Skates would be a terrible draw, particularly at Nottarf Krap. We'd get beat and never hear the end of it.

    West Country team away would be amazing.

    I still kiss a picture of Dave Merrington every January. "Score a goal, Neil Shipperley..."

    True. Our 2005 side would look like spartans in comparison.

    Dell sized mentality.

    We had players in our side in 2010 that went on to play at the highest level (international and Champions League) and they smashed us because the rest of our squad got outclassed in the end. They haven’t got a single player that will reach those heights, we would embarrass them home or away.

    The thing I love most about internet football forums is how different opinions are respected. Just need to get world peace cracked now and my work on this planet is done.

    I would just enjoy watching us beat Pompey. We don't need to establish bragging rights; they are way beneath us, always have been, always will be.

    Usually I’d be all over those filth away, but I’m away on holiday. So I’ll settle for us both drawing rubbish at home, and then the filth away next round instead.

    I live in Plymouth and Home Park is within walking distance to me. I work most Saturdays so getting to games is a bit difficult. But no yeah, I'm not a proper fan because I want to go and watch the game. Fantastic.

    Anyone who doesn't want them, home or away, is not a true Saints fan.

    We haven't beaten them since 2005, that's FOURTEEN years.

    "Anyone who thinks _______________ is not a true _________" is on par with "That was Hitler's logic" as incredibly arrogant and ignorant.

    As stated above, I'd much rather have an away game against a team I can get to. So I can actually go and watch it...How that makes me "not a true Saints fan" is beyond me.
