  1. Re. spending, I'm not going to disagree with Webber's approach, he's far more qualified and knowledgeable than me !

    Ratings v Villa

    I thought that Cantwell had a good game today. He looked quite composed on and off the ball. Seemed to me as though the players weren't playing well as a team. Too many stray passes or players not knowing where the other player was going to play the ball.

    Villa must win

    *a must-win. Hyphenated as it's a compound adjective (~ game).

    EFL Trophy v Crawley

    If I've understood the rules correctly and my maths serves me right, Norwich U21s can not get above the 3rd place that they already occupy. "City must now hope that Crawley beat Oxford when the sides meet in the competition in November, and that both sides have a worse goal difference than Norwich." But if Crawley beat Oxford, Crawly's GD will be better than Norwich U21s. as it's already the same, and the only remaining fixture will then be Portsmouth Vs Oxford where both teams are already above us.

    Come on Leicester

    Doesn't matter when in the season it is. 3 points remains 3 points whenever the game is played. A Newcastle win today could have been the 3 points to them that would send us down.
  6. I clearly do. See my posts quoted above. I had already stated: "Level 10 of the English football league system" and "only the top 10-tier leagues", where "tier" means: "each in a series of rows or levels of a structure placed one above the other"
  7. I agree and my point was, and still is, that the other countries still have "a" league cup i.e. a knock-out competition of clubs that play in leagues but never seemed to have something that directly compared to our League Cup, so the statement from the BBC was, IMO, misleading.
  8. No, the FA Cup is not open to all football clubs affiliated to the FA, only the top 10-tier leagues. You may be thinking of the FA Vase but that excludes the teams in the top 8-tier leagues.
  9. The clubs involved are not members of FIFA or any other global organisation. They are all members of an English domestic football league, either Premier, EFL or National League.
  10. So is the FA Cup. League Cup is top 4 leagues. FA Cup is top 10 leagues. German "DFL-Ligapokal" was top five teams of the previous Bundesliga season and the winners of the DFB-Pokal, so not the same as our League Cup. German "DFB-Pokal" is Bundesliga 1 & 2, top-4 from 3. Liga and then 21 qualifiers from lower leagues.
  11. Kind of. All clubs that play in the FA Cup are still in football leagues of one kind or the other: "The competition is open to any eligible club down to Level 10 of the English football league system" So it IS a league cup !
  12. I don't understand what it is that you don't understand. As I said, Germany & France still have knock-out competitions.
  13. Eh ? How are you (or anyone else, for that matter) differentiating the League Cup from the FA Cup ? Germany still has a knock-out competition called the "DFB-Pokal". The "DFL-Ligapokal" was dropped but it never had the saem history or number of clubs involved as the League Cup. France has the "Coupe de France", which is also a knockout competition, so saying that we are the only one of Europe's top five leagues who will have a league cup from next season is a bit misleading IMO.

    His goal against Brentford was very slick.
