That's good too. None of them should charge a penny to be honest, but at least the richest clubs don't. It's a good start and hopefully this article will pressure the charging clubs to abandon the idea.

It was a frantic ending to the game as they were desperate for a 10th :lol:.

Clough better come out and say that he still thinks Burton have a chance.

Early goal and who knows what can happen.

That was a deeply silly match but Oleks sheepishly apologising for putting his cross in the top corner was delightful

It's the perfect game plan by Burton. Man City now think that they are safely into the final and will field a weak side for the second leg. Complacency from Pep will mean that Burton will score 12 in the second leg.

Right, now all those insignificant and boring domestic cups have been put back in the cupboard for a couple of weeks, we can finally focus on the return of the Premiership and all its tasty goodness...

West Ham vs Arsenal
Brighton vs Liverpool
Burnley vs Fulham
Cardiff vs Huddersfield
Crystal Palace vs Watford
Leicester vs Southampton
Chelsea vs Newcastle
Everton vs Bournemouth
Spurs vs Man United
Man City vs Wolves

I'll be honest, it's not a great week. Spurs vs United is the obvious highlight, and it'll be (relatively) interesting to see how Liverpool and Arsenal cope away from home but other than that... :dread:

I've got my wolves scarf on, cuddly wolf toy, and a big Wolves flag to cheer on the lads.

I'd like to see how many of the people bemoaning City smashing Burton are the same ones that were bemoaning big teams resting players for the FA Cup.

Dreading this weekend. We have a terrible record vs. Liverpool and the form they're in means they'll probably be putting at least 4 past us.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Even if they wanted to City actually couldn't play the kids because they were in the EFL Trophy the night before, the two "play the kids" cups clashed with each other!
