    And I'm not sure you can call the placing of kids teams into predetermined groups a draw.

    A few would go to Cheltenham away. Fun last season.

    Niiice Cheltenham and FGR are the two closest league clubs to me. Either or both away would be perfect.

    Another 6-1 Whaddon Road or revenge at the new lawn

    Am I right in thinking that they will be one of those at home and one away, as the U21 team we draw will automatically be at home?

    Still can't work out how the EFL puts us in the south draw but Wolves and West Brom in the northern section.

    Because they are both north of us, and we are south of both of them ?

    Definitely will take Cheltenham away. Was on hols for last seasons game, so a 'new' stadium went begging.

    Hope both are at home as it’ll mean we will play the under 21 side away from home at their first team stadium

    Good draw for us. Bring it on. We have a big squad and we need these games for rotation

    Obrien
    Mason
    MacDonald
    Hyam
    Trimmer
    Doyle
    Westbrook
    Allasani
    Shipley
    Biamou
    Ponticelli

    An example 11. Not bad at all? We can win this thing again without harming league form

    It's a fact that some of the kids teams will have cost millions of £'s to assemble particularly in the case of Chelsea
    I think it's been a game changer for the top clubs since they put their u23's into this cup
    Chelsea even played senior players who they paid over £10m for in earlier rounds but still got nowhere near the final
    That's why the Prem teams are looking at putting their best prospects at our level so they get men's football experience

    I’d like to us to go far in this again without hampering our league form.

    Our squad is big and strong enough to progress to the latter stages and why wouldn’t we want to? Momentum and a winning mentality will support our league campaign, regardless of the status of the competition.

    Plus, I’d love another trip to Wembley. And as we’re being promoted via the autos, this is the only chance we’ll have.

    Think they need to use a bit of Logic, Leicester playing Fleetwood and buy in area groups but we play Arsenal? Walsall play Middlesborough

    Suspect Arsenal kids (alongside Chelsea) will be one of the strongest U23s sides.

    A few of our young players were at the Arsenal including JJ and Corey Aidey
    They would probably fancy playing against them if JJ is fit by then
