From next season, there is no extra time in League cup ties
ABBA penalties have been scrapped, backed to ABAB

There will no longer be seeding in First and Second rounds
The first round remains regionalised North/South

Can't quibble about any of that.

Wonder when the draw will be. Must be soon but I haven't seen a date yet.

In recent years it's been the day before the league fixtures are announced, which will be on 21st June this year.

With the ending of seeding in the first two rounds we might get to see a final that doesn't involved the usual big 5 (6 if you include Arsenal) teams in the final.

After last seasons fiasco with the draws maybe the EFL should ask the politicians working on Brexit to make the draws.

Why have seeding at all? Just draw the bloody balls out, how hard can it be?

Seeding was brought in so that lower EFL clubs, league 1 and league 2, got a chance of a big name in the draw so they could make some money early in the season.

Re: [Tykeoldboy] League Cup changes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

My team has always been unseeded. This has meant we have always drawn a team higher than ourselves in the (previous season's) table
This makes progress from Round 1 seem less likely than in an unseeded draw - but 7 out of 18 seems a reasonable return
I have seen all seven second round ties, and we have lost them all.
In the same period we have 11 FA Cup first round wins. Of course, it is possible to draw lower than our level here, with three non-league teams beaten at first round stage
From when we joined the league (1999) to 2013, we had not lost to non-league teams, but now have done so four seasons out of five, (the odd one being when we were non-League)

Tbh, anyone will do, just glad to avoid yet another tie with Peterborough as they're in the other section of the draw.

I see McManaman, Saha and Wise are being flown over for the draw which doesn't even appear to be on TV, instead available only via the EFL website and the competition's Twitter feed.

That won't be decided for a few weeks but Sunderland v Sheff Wed looks to be the tie of the round so not ideal for TV coverage.

I reckon West Brom v. Luton Town looks a good chance for an upset, should that be the sort of thing the telly people are after. Though I doubt there'll be a very big attendance for it...

I'll hopefully get the chance to get a new tick in the 92 done somewhere. At the moment, I fancy the idea of Macclesfield Town v. Bradford City, which should also be a decent match.

Correct, on the Tuesday, doesn't look like there'll be any live games on the Wednesday, but this fixture is on the Thursday (post from Tykeoldboy):
