    Chill

    Tonights result is not THAT important. We were knocked out by Newport last season and Swindon the season before. It's been a tad disappointing so far but that is football and nothing illustrates the game better than the craziness of the championship. OK if we're rock bottom at Christmas than you can be peed off, but after the team gel a bit and with a bit of positivity we could be pushing for a play off place again. Keep the faith and remember compared with 17 years ago we're still in paradise. If that makes you cringe you are not a proper supporter.

      Well I wouldn't mind getting into the 4th Round at the expense of another lower league club.

      Seeing as mid-table mediocrity is looking likely, I really want us to go on decent cup runs for extra excitement this season.

      Besides, The League Cup is the one trophy that Championship clubs have a realistic chance of actually winning.

      Im with this view. If we could not care less about this cup then we should have just gone out in round one. Lots of bigger teams have already been knocked out, this really is a chance to get pretty far in a cup.

      Not 'THAT' important, does not mean it would not be nice to win and if we do mean that does not mean we're likely to win the cup. If we were good enough to win the cup then surely we'd be good enough to make the play offs. Neither are that likely but that does not mean gloom and doom.

      It's a Mickey Mouse cup right up until you play a team that you want to beat or are through to the last 8, at which point ticket prices suddenly double and everyone wants to attend.

      I think the game IS that important, but not for the obvious reasons. Yes, mickey mouse cup with very little interest until the final stages or you are drawn a grudge match, but after the run of league performances we need to bury Burton by a comfortable margin to restore confidence for the team, give the guys (especially Walton) who play tonight and aren't getting regular 1st team starts a chance to shine and possibly most importantly, have the crowd back behind the team, rather than booing them off the pitch.

      I think you will find the consensus on here will be as follows:
      If we win narrowly: Sami is useless, why did he rotate the team. We should be stuffing teams like this etc
      If we win by a clear margin: The is just papering over the cracks. This was nothing other than a par performance.
      If were loose: SAMI OUT! We can't score goals, boring football, BURKE out, the signings are terrible. God I wish Gus was still here to hold me at night.
