I've no explanation for my attendance later other than the mother in law boils my piss every Tuesday , so it gets me away from her tutting and belching.
Don't usually bother with the League cup otherwise.
Apparently Burton are playing a strong side but sneaking feeling we might win tonight and then as per Vale of recent years we will get a humdinger away at Reading in the next round

I had a look into IPTV about 6 months ago and as far as I could see iFollow wasn’t part of it, certainly not for every club. It’s a good idea though.
Oh, but it is. Not every game, though. I watched Grimsby v Bradford last Saturday via the Grimsby iFollow stream.

Leyton Orient at home, this whole competition is a bit of a "mehhh" for me. Financially it could benefit us but I would hate to go on a mad run and potentially jeopardize our promotion challenge.
When Bradford City got to the League cup final in 2013, we also got promoted out of this league 2 months later, so dont worry about that

Funnily enough I watched the highlights of your game against Arsenal yesterday on one of the Sky channels and Hanson won pretty much everything in the air back then against Arsenal just like he still does now.

Yeah seems like it's all championship games, a few of the bigger L1 clubs and then if there's an early KO in L2 that gets added as well.

I invested in IPTV a couple of weeks ago, working well so far. A trick I've learnt is to use foreign (NBC ideally) channels for premier league instead of the Sky streams, runs much smoother.

Jolley said he was only going to make a couple of changes and put out a side to win.

So we have made 7 changes to the starting 11 and god knows what formation we are going to use with the players in the 11. Guess he isn't that bothered if we lose to a team in lge 1.

We’ve actually only made one change unforced in resting Pope and bringing in Cullen which is as strong, Manny injured after a hideous tackle on him at the weekend so Montano comes in, three wide players so assume it’s Amoo up front with Cullen maybe?

Baudry, Conroy, Lyden and Isgrove left out. Would have benched Doughty and Yates as well personally.

Watch his header at Villa Park against Ron Vlaar, great goal, you might need it in a few months time when he’s conceded his millionth foul and flicked on to no one, again.

Iredale in for Mellish and Loft for Olomola. Hope on the bench.

Our performances at the start of the season have kind of forced us to put a strong side out against Barnsley, which isn't ideal for us. If we'd not been such a mess against Swindon we could have sat back confident that all was in order for our next league match and rested some players. Instead we have to put out a team with one key change in Iredale at LB, unable to do the same and give Carroll a start thanks to his suspension with Olomola being the only first-team player to get a rest.

Got slightly confused over what my point was supposed to be about half way through that. Playing a strong squad isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's not a mickey-mouse tournament, I guess I mean it's not quite the 'free hit' that it would normally be as we'll be putting a lot of stock in the overall performance tonight.

Following a poor tackle, Lee Novak has gone off injured. We now have 0 fit strikers 3 games into the season. Nothing will go right for us at the moment.

Great news, we have managed to not concede a goal until the 18th minute - much better than the sub 5 minutes at our first two league games.

They already have a player sent off and even though we have made changes it’s a good line-up so I expect us to turn it around.

Every game wont be on it but if the home side have signed up to ifollow then chances are it will be on.

We’re getting relegated this season - the new Notts County

1 up at Brentford at half time. We’re playing 5-3-2 which we never do - expecting to be defending our 18 yard box for the whole second half.

Drawing 0-0 at ht, will definitely take that.

Wearing our third kit tonight, third different kit we've worn in 3 games.

1-0 down at halftime. Sounds like a hard fought effort from both teams. Just hope we can last the 90 with no injuries or suspensions more than anything else.

Sounds like we’ve had chances probably a couple that Pope would of buried with his head but sounds fairly open. Just hoping Gibbons doesn’t get a second yellow and miss Saturday!

2 up at Boro. Quality 2nd goal including Dale setting up Kirk. This Gold kit is starting to grow on me, with the football were playing in it.
