Mid-week Capital One Cup Madness!

I have to admit it - when Leeds went out of the Capital One Cup in the first round this season, a lot of my interest in the tournament ended. So, I followed but didn't watch any of the action yesterday. The teams who emerged victorious were :

Everton, Villa, Stoke, Hull, Leicester, Boro, Bournemouth, Man Citeh.

We'll see how the other clubs in the competition this afternoon, starting at 2:45pm onward.
