Did Someone Get A Back-Hander?

Last updated : 24 August 2017 By Footy Mad - Editor

The draw for the Carabao Cup third round was made in Beijing this morning.

At 4.30AM.

Why - in China at 4AM - is anyone's guess, but trust me, football is in the hands of feckin IDIOTS!

No Newcastle, but we didn't deserve to be in the draw, so let's not even go there.

Manchester City, the 2014 winners, have been drawn away at West Brom, eight-time winners Liverpool visit Leicester, Chelsea will play Nottingham Forest at home and Everton host Sunderland.

Apparently the draw was made in China at 11.30am local time, to try and boost the EFL's exposure in Asia, and NOT because "someone" got a back-hander!
