Suddenly, there are only 16 names left….
After the 3rd round results from the Carling Cup on Wednesday, there are now only 16 teams left.
Birmingham City, Brentford, Burnley, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Leicester City, Stoke City, Arsenal, Wolves, Aston Villa, Newcastle Utd, Manchester United, West Ham Utd, Wigan, WBA, Northampton Town.
With a lot of heavyweight names missing, this is going to be our only realistic of qualifiying for Europe next term, with brings me to the vexed question of winning the League Cup, or concentrating on Premiership survival. Both are possible of course, but if you could choose one, obviously that would be premiership survival, or would it?
