Yes, posting this photo is painful. But maybe McLeish can do it again?

Will it be Blackurn Rovers? Please, please, please, God, tell me it's not Blackburn Rovers. We managed to accomplish not getting Rapid Vienna by simply not qualifying for Europa, but it's impossible not to qualify for the League Cup, so it seems inevitable it's going to be Blackburn. Of course, we may never find out if Sheffield Wednesday or Blackpool never score a bloody goal. How did that not go in?!?

Oh, thank goodness that's over. Bring on the draw. And it's...

Hereford United. That'd be the club that finished 21st in League 2 last season.And we play them at home. On August 23rd, by the way.

If Aston Villa can't manage to make it to the third round, we might all need to give up for good. Except apparently Hereford are a good League side.

Other fun fixtures:

Blackburn v Sheffield Wednesday -- My money's on the Owls

Exeter v Liverpool -- Get in!

Brighton v Sunderland -- I just really love Brighton and Hove Albion

Scunthorpe v Newcastle

The rest...not many to comment on. Let's just move on to the next round, shall we? And for god's sake, don't let it be Blackburn.
