What a bitter disappointment the draw for the 3rd Round of The Carling Cup turned out to be for us, and I bet Scunthorpe are saying exactly the same.

We wanted a big, big club. A game that would generate some serious money for us. Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man U, Spurs, Man City, or even Stoke. Who have we ended up with? Scunthorpe United, that’s who. And not just Scunthorpe United, but Scunthorpe United away! Jesus wept. We couldn’t have been given a worse tie than this.

Calamitous, disastrous, distressing, lamentable, deplorable, pitiable, wretched. That’s what it is. That’s exactly what it is! Why, why, why?

Are you happy with the draw? Vote on our latest poll which can be found to the right of this article. The game will take place in the week beginning 21st September.

  • Typical of our luck this really. I conna see us getting through I’m sure they’ll be putting out their strongest side. They’ll be desperate to get into the fourth round and get a good draw!

  • Doesn’t really capture the imagination does it, away to Scunthorpe? They’re struggling at the moment and we have to be in with a chance of winning there. Gutted we didn’t a big ‘un.

  • just been on footymad .net and they think it going be a walkover how wrong can they be , and they think it`s only going be a tenner for the game so we should take a few there if it is.

  • They thought it would be a walkover on Sheff Utd and Sheff Wed forums! When will people learn? I’m up for the game if its going to be just a tenner, we’ll get a big ‘un in the 4th!

  • These ties are there to be won, Teams like Scunthorpe will expect just to put their boots on and its a potential banana skin for clubs like this and Vale have nothing at all to lose and everything to gain.
