  5. Christopher Harris says:

    I didn’t get a chance to watch Sunderland-Chelsea, but according to the reports on talkSport, Jozy Altidore is coming under a lot of ridicule from the Sunderland fans for his poor passing ability. The sentiment was shared by the match commentator too (on the radio).

  6. Steve says:

    Sunderland the lead!

  7. BD says:

    Uh-oh. Mourinho on the chopping block…hahahaha

  8. James says:

    Wow! what a win for Sunderland. One of the best League cup games I’ve seen. Would love to see Sunderland stay up as they have really improved under Poyet.

  9. Guy says:

    Great win for Sunderland. Now if the other red and white stripes can win tomorrow……….. :-)

  10. Sacto Blues says:

    Mickey Mouse Cup that believe me that Chelsea at the end of the season will not cry one tear over the League Cup.

    • James says:

      Only losers call it a Mickey Mouse Cup. When Chelsea were winning it it was considered another trophy won to brag about.

      • Cfctys says:

        I have to agree.When we won it under Vailli it was a big deal. Also do not forget it was Jose’s 1st trophy in England

      • Sacto Blues says:

        Funny that when Chelsea won the Champions League the only thing anyone wanted to talk about was how we were knocked out by Liverpool in the League Cup I mean hey we just won the Champions league and the elusive much sought after Carling, Coca-Cola, Capital One Cup eluded our grasps .. No seriously your right I’m devastated right now over one less cup to brag about. LOL

  11. Smokey Bacon says:

    I wonder if there is a spare seat next to AVB on the plane back to Portugal.

  12. Burnsey says:

    Anyone else disappointed in the BEIN feed? Commentators in the studio…..this Ray Hudson too overbearing for my liking. It sounds like they are pumping in the crowd as the noise is nothin sync with the action. Why can’t they just use the English commentators live at the game?
