Seriously reckon this should be merged with the checkatrade trophy and become an U21 tournament.

Don't know why people moan about the league cup. Not much wrong with it, has very little impact on fatigue unless you reach the latter stages (and it's easily manageable even then) and it's a great opportunity to give young players experience of senior football.

I personally think it dilutes the FA Cup.

I think its great, gives teams to play the youf or depth footballers get a a chance and its another opportunity to win a cup. As well as giving us fans another game to watch.

Whats not to love about it.

I think the league and the money on offer for finishing in the top 4 dilutes these domestic cups more than anything else. A trophy should be but sadly its not enough reward for clubs compared to the financial windfall of finishing in a UCL spot.

It gives a Europa playoff spot, Swansea I'm sure would've been pretty happy with 2013

Yep, it's great to see youth get a chance to stake their claims at their clubs.

Was so inspiring for all the youth winners this season. Ederson, Zinchenko, Laporte, Otamendi, Walker, Silva, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Sterling, Bernardo Silva & Aguero. Even more youth like Sane, Kompany & Gundogan got to play a bit. Sorry for the other youth that didn't get on the park like Foden, Muric but probably felt most sorry for the youth of Mahrez.

Youth. :tearsofjoy:

Bernabe, Garcia, Gomes, Muric, Nmecha, Poveda and Sandler made their debuts for the club in the league cup this year.

Was a very good comp for our kids.
