Carling Cup

I was a bit bored, so had a peer at the various LC fixtures and I must admit I find it all a bit confusing.

A preliminary round? Eh?

I also hadn't realised teams enter based on their finishing positions from last season - i.e. QPR enter in the first round, but Blackpool wait until the second.

Championship side Birmingham won't be in until the third round because they are in Europe and there is the whole north/south thing going on, at least for the first couple of rounds.

Strange way to do it.

Wikipedia sort of explains it.

I guess the format of the FA Cup is even stranger - I think I played in it for ten seasons or so, but never even got vaguely close to playing a proper team. Forum Index -> All other football
