    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?

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

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

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

        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

        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

    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.

    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).

      Most of the games are being shown across FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, FOX Deportes and FOX Soccer 2Go. I don’t have a TV schedule handy because there’s so little interest in the tournament this time (sorry Tim), but your best bet is to check the schedules via and
