Can anyone tell me what is the point of the league cup,fa cup and Europa league?? When most teams will put out very weak sides , surely its time to scrap the league cup,move the Europa league to Wednesday,and give the winners of the fa cup a place in the champions league.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

This might come as a surprise, but there are more than four teams who play football in the Uk and the League Cup provides them with a chance to compete against the top clubs (depending on the draw obviously) a chance to boost their coffers with additional games, a chance to use their squad players, a chance to try out new formations and tactics and a chance of a day out at Wembley - among other things.

There is more to football than the Champions League and the Europa does all of the things the League Cup does, on a wider scale.

As for the FA Cup, are you sure? Teams put out weakened sides do they? If you think that's true you're as dumb as your question.

Agree1 Disagree0

Clearly you didnt watch the fa cup lately, did you see the arsenal v man utd game last season?? that is just 1 example for you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh dear, you couldn?「どィび「t have picked a worse example to prove your point with!

United: van der Sar/Brown/Smalling/Vidic/Evra/Hernandez/Rooney - on the bench were Giggs/Scholes & Berbatov

Arsenal: Almunia/Diaby/Denilson/Nasri/Wilshire/Arshavin/van Persie - on the bench were Clichy/Ebou?ノャゥ & Ramsey

If you had any idea what you?「どィび「re talking about you?「どィび「d know about a little thing called INJURIES, both Utd and Arsenal put the strongest sides out that they could manage, have a read of a few match reports maybe?

The fact is that the FA Cup is still massive, and ALL of the top sides are still desperate to win it every season.

Agree0 Disagree0

No team fields their strongest side in the fa cup or league cup, they save that for the league or champions league,cos staying in the league or finishing in the top 4 or doing well in the champions league is far more important, cos it pays more.

Anyone else think ticket prices are a disgrace at the moment,different charges for clubs etc? Example, Aston Villa v Wigan Premier league next game £21. Yet they FLEECED us Newcastle fans for £43 on saturday!!!!!! I wish Newcastle would charge clubs exactly what they charge us, only Blackburn would benefit. Chelsea,Villa,QPR,Arsenal all charge way over the top, although their tiny away support would disappear all together if we did. Toon Loyal

We dont have tiny away support your "so called big club" wont allocate the tickets we request. Dont like it dont come stay and watch your small team not win anything for another season at home where they dont over charge you... {Ed003's Note -Ouch! cant post the last bit for obvious reasons}

Look at all these jealous fans, saints and brighton will both have a great chance of reaching the premier league no doubt about it

Believable2 Unbelievable1

Saints are 2nd favourites with most bookies, so theres got to be something in it.....personaly i think saints could well have a good season

Agree0 Disagree0

Ah yes, both clubs have a great chance of reaching the Premier League... forget the fact that the season is only 7 games old, forget the fact that there are another 117pts to be played for, let's just declare Brighton and Southampton to be Premier League bound now and let's base that statement on the first six weeks of the season. Let's ignore the fact that clubs new to the Championship often have a superb start to the season and let's ignore the bit that happens to most newley promoted sides after a while, the slide back into mediocracy.

Nobody is disputing that both sides are playing good football and deserve their place at the top of the league, but you're made if you honestly think the season is over already and that they'll be able to hold on to those places. Let's see where they are after Christmas before we get carried away.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh dear! I think someones side may be in the bottom 3 at the mo!!

Cheer up charlie! :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Really, you think it's just sour grapes? You honestly think the season is as good as over already and that Southampton and Brighton can hold on to their places at the top of the table? Seriously, that's what you think?


Like are said, both have been good value thus far, but if you really think that 7 games is a good indicator then you're fooling yourself pal. Let's have another look after Christmas shall we?

After loosing against Derby County at the weekend, Nottingham Forest are to appeal to the football league to see if they can play their next game against 9 or even 8 men, to give them a chance of winning a game.
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha He He He etc etc.......

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Derby....PAH. Small club, small minds.

Agree2 Disagree0

Poor old Forest, can't even afford of tin of polish and now their 30yr old trophies are starting to gather dust. "We used to be a big club, but we're not anymore"

Nothing better than a Crestfallen K.K. Perhaps he would like to have another word with a referees top man. See if he can sort out Liverpools lack of effort.

Agree0 Disagree0

How is not about European cups. A european cup means champions of europe.
