Does being seeded affect the draw in any way?

I bet nobody can guess who I would like us to get drawn against. A local side.. who wear striped shirts ..

Frippy .. I believe (but would need to check) that all it means at this stage is that you can not be drawn against another seeded team..

Oh yes that would be fun if we draw the deckchair wearers! I suppose they have one pot with the seeded teams and another with the unseeded - but then not sure how they decide who's at home and who's away?

Chix is only trying to build us up Mad. This is a competition we have not had a run in for some time. I fancy Accrington Stanley!! Who are they?

Whoever we get, I reckon we'll put out a reserve/youth side

I can't see us playing a decent side in the carling cup. Although to be honest, i can't see us playing a decent side in the league either - and with the complete lack of players in our current squad, we won't exactly have much choice!

Now call me odd but I still see the Carling Cup as a route to Wembley and because most Premiership teams play a weakened side I'd go for it ... What have we got to lose ?.. bring it on I say..

Totally agree with carpet. This cup tends to hinder the very important league matches, either side of these games. Without a squad of any real depth, it smells of an embarrassing defeat to Port Vale!!!

Right now, our weakened team and first team look decidedly similar. I think a decent cup run would be a nice change from some dicey league form. This is meant as a realistic view rather than negative. I still think that we can hold till Christmas and inject new blood to get us clear in January.
