Capital One Cup Round One Wrap-up

This year's Capital One Cup competition got underway yesterday afternoon with a spate of fixtures. This produced a few surprises (e.g., Ipswich bowing out at Portman Road to Stevenage) and some right old ding dongs (Morecambe and Wise's 4-5 win at Rotherham - cor!).

This afternoon sees a few more fixtures, including BEin's coverage of Luton v. Villa. Of course, I'll be hoping that Leeds rebound from our miserable opening hammering at QPR when we visit Fleetwood Town to have a wee reunion with our old friend Uwe Rosler. Come on, you Whites!

Afternoon, chaps - the afternoon's League Cup action has started with Burton's clash with Bury.

2:35 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good afternoon, mate. I found Fleetwood Mac vs Leeds on BEIN's Spanish language channel. I'm on that channel now. Do you get that channel?

2:41 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The teams are in the tunnel at Highbury where Fleetwood Mac haven't just taken Arsenal's stadium name, but even wear the same identical uniform. Leeds is in all blue.

2:44 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

As fate would have it, Fleetwood Mac's manager is none other than Uwe Rosler. Remember him, Bob?

2:45 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from Higbury

COME ON YOU BLUES!

2:47 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It looks like a cold rainy evening just up the coast from Blackpool as both managers and the fans are wearing jackets.

2:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The first change falls to Fleetwood and it's not too far off. Wake up Leeds!

2:49 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I've finally got my BEin link going at the office. Watching Luton v. Villa now.

2:49 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Afternoon, MUR - I've just been able to log in to my BEin account and have started watching.

I do remember Uwe - I thought he was hard done by at Elland Road.

2:50 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fleetwood's most recognizable player is right back, Connor McLaughlin, who played for Northern Ireland in the Euros.

2:50 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Two changes to the Leeds line-up today from Sunday's match. Liam Cooper has replace Matty Grimes and it's a debut for Pablo Hernandez in place of Stuart Dallas.

2:52 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm watching you're lads on the BEIN's Spanish channel. Luton should fell like the home team since the match is BEIN played in Bedfordshire.

2:52 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Also, Lewie Coyle starts in place of Berardi , whom he replaced about twenty minutes in on Sunday. The Italian stormed off a, which must not have impressed Garry Monk , since he didn't even make the subs bench. He didn't learn after what happened to fellow Italian, Silvestri?

2:53 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sakho wins a corner off a one two with debutant, Pablo Hernandez.The corner is headed away and Sakho slices a volley well wide.

2:55 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - off his own bar from one of the Luton defenders. Should have been an opening goal for the Villans.

2:55 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Villa are looking quite good early doors.

2:56 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fleetwood Mac is not the typical route one L1 side. They seem very Fleet of foot. That is, Uwe has them to where they seem comfortable keeping the ball on the floor.

2:58 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cole is tackled for a Fleetwood corner.

2:58 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!FLEETWOOD MAC SING TO THE TUNE OF THE LEAD.

2:59 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Andre Ayew scores from an acute angle after some really comical defending by the Hatters.

0-1!

3:00 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob, you nor Garry Monk will be impressed by the defending off the corner. The initial corner was headed away to the corner taker. His return cross was not properly headed away by Roofe, then Lewie Coyle was bullied off the ball, allowing Holloway to blast home from close range.

3:01 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry to say this, but new signing Roofe has looked more like he's smoking a roofie.

3:02 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Come on, you Whites - get it back!

3:03 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree - I wasn't impressed by Roofe on Sunday.

3:03 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's four goals we've conceded so far this season - and no goals scored (sigh)....

3:04 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You won't be pleased to hear that he ran the ball out of play then went down , looking for a penalty after he ran the ball out of play.

3:05 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry, mate.It must be the ghost of Uwe past.

3:06 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not pleased at all.

3:06 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Vieira has been booked for a really nasty foul.

3:07 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nigel Clogh's Burton Albion take the lead vs Bury

3:08 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Holloway nearly scores his and Fleetwood's second , but his shot is cleared off the line by Chris Wood. The corner is caught by a soaking wet Rob Green

3:09 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Good lord!

3:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sarcastic cheers from the home fans when Rob Green caught the corner.

3:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Better from Roofe as his near post effort is parried away for a corner.

3:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's taken short and the Fleetwood Mac players are wise to it, winning the tackle and a free kick

3:11 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Rob Green has got to recover his confidence. Apparently Gary Monk has already alienated Marco Silvestre, our #1 from last year, so he looks as if he's headed to the door.

3:12 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roofe clears for a Fleetwood corner. It's headed away to the corner taker and his cross is headed harmlessly wide by Jonsson.

3:14 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

After a shaky first twenty minutes , I thought Rob Green looked fairly good. He could do nothing about the goal today. A player was left unmarked in the six yard box. Other then the error ion the third minute on Sunday, he really can't be blamed for anything else.

3:16 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nigel Clough's Burton Albion is one up at the half vs Bury.

3:16 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roofe goes on a solo run and has a shot blocked for a corner.

3:17 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner is headed away

3:17 PM

A long Leeds possession ends with Sakho running the ball out of play

3:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Chris Wood wins a corner.

3:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor corner from Pablo Hernandez is cleared by the first man for another corner. The next corner is headed away

3:19 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Uwe looks calm on the sideline , but must really be on cloud nine. He would love nothing better then to stick it to your team.

3:22 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! The Hatters are back in business at Kenilworth Road. Great team move finished off by Gray.

3:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A promising Leeds break comes to naught as Chris Wood played Hernandez down the left, but his return pass was too long and straight to the keeper.

3:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Same old Villa ?

3:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Leeds win a corner off a throw.

3:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Charlie Taylor is headed away and the counter is on. Leeds defend it well and win a free kick.

3:28 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The keeper pushes away a long range effort from Roofe then it's hoofed away by the left back. It was a routine safe , in all honesty

3:29 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Perhaps - they looked slick enough at the beginning but they've been rocked on their heels in the last few minutes. It's a very young team.

3:30 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That Roofe effort may well be our first shot on goal this season!

3:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Naughty by Connor McLaughlin on Pablo Hernandez . A minute of stoppage time.

3:32 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm off home during the break. I'll hope to join you when I get home. Nice chatting with you, mate!

3:33 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He had another shot on target earlier in the half.

3:33 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Leeds is a goal down at the half at Highbury.

3:33 PM

I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers,mate.

The second half is underway.

COME ON YOU BLUES!

3:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Garry Monk made a change at the interval as Sol Bamba is on for Liam Cooper.

3:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another chance for Leeds a s a cross from Charlie Taylor was headed over by Roofe from near the penalty spot

3:56 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Luton have come from behind to take the lead vs Villa, who just can't get a result.

3:59 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sol Bamba clatters Johnson from behind.

4:00 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick comes to nothing as Cole's wayward header is out for a Leeds throw.

4:01 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roofe wins a free kick about 25 yards from goal off a pass from Pablo Hernandez.

4:02 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The curling free kick from Roofe is about a foot or two over.

4:03 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Holloway, the scorer, gets a standing ovation, as he's replaced by Ashley Hunter

4:03 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

JFH's lads take the lead vs Swindon.

4:05 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ashley Hunter shoots just over from about ten yards out and appeared to be fouled in the box by Sol Bamba seconds earlier. Leeds got away with one there

4:06 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fleetwood fans cheer as a shot from Sacko clears the ground and lands by the council housing. Bob may not see the funny side of it.

4:07 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sacko has another shot, this time from closer in that lands in the council housing again.

4:08 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Garry Monk has had enough of that and Mowatt is on for Sacko.

4:08 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A promising break for Leeds as Chris Wood is played down the left. His cross is miss controlled by Pablo Hernandez , but his cross is headed off the line and a long range effort from Lewie Coyle is straight to the keeper.

4:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Germany go eight up vs Fiji ion the Olympics , but I'm sure that eight is not enough for them

4:11 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm here to follow the rest of this afternoon's action. I got in from work just in time to see Luton score a goal that has them leading 2-1 over Villa.

4:12 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Dear oh dear - Okore with a real howler of an own goal to put Luton 3-1 up. RDM is looking rather non-plussed.

4:12 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Roofe finally shows why Leeds signed him from Oxford as he receives a pass, turns a defender then shoots inches wide from about thirty yards out.

4:13 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Some of those Villa players were in the Prem last season. RDM , along with Kevin Bond and Steve Clarke will need time with this ragged team.

4:14 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, mate. Still 1-0 at Higbury, but Leeds have played better this half.

4:15 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

David Ball, who assisted on the goal, is replaced by Bobby Grant.

4:15 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Swindon tie it up at Loftus Road.

4:16 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roofe wins a free kick after Chris Wood picked up a stray Fleetwood pass.

4:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A horrible free kick from Pablo Hernandez is well overcooked.

4:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice from Garry Monk as Marcus Antonsson is on for Ronaldo Viera

4:19 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I wasn't keen on Antonsson on Sunday, either. He missed a real sitter.

4:20 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A really nasty foul by Kyle Bartley. The home fans wanted a red card, but the ref decides it's a booking.

4:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I noticed that. A bit discouraging, but Roofe has been better this match

4:22 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lewie Coyle has a cross cleared then a long range effort from Phillips is well wide.

4:23 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The keeper pushes a near post effort from Pablo Hernandez for a corner that he takes and is out for another.

4:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice from Uwe as Nathan Pond is on for Devante Cole.

4:25 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sol Bamba booked for an off the ball incident. The next corner is headed out for another.

4:26 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bamba goes down in the box as Fleetwood clear the corner. Garry Monk wanted a penalty, but nothing doing.

4:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into ET between Burton and Bury

4:27 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sounds like we're doing more kicking than anything else. I've got this one DVR'd but I might give it a miss if this continues.

4:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Germany go nine up vs Fiji in the Olympics.

4:28 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hard to say. it's been a better second half. The Spanish BEIN is showing Luton vs Villa after this match. Sounds like a good one.

4:29 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Charlie Taylor clears for a Fleetwood corner.

4:29 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner is cleared then Coyle concedes a free kick

4:30 PM

Decent match here at Kenilworth Road.

4:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A horrible miss kick in the box by Chris Wood after great work by Roofe.

4:32 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY!!! ANTONSSON TIES IT UP FOR LEEDS

4:32 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

4:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Charlie Taylor made a run down the left . His pass went off several Fleetwood players and broke to Antonsson, who turned Connor McLaughlin and blasted a shot into the roofe of the net from the near post

4:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute of the five minutes of stoppage time have been played now. This one looks headed to ET. Are you hanging around for that?

4:35 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Antonsson's first goal for the club and our first goal of the season. A priceless one, too.

4:36 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The first goal of the Garry Monk era scored by Monk's first signing, a player you weren't too keen about. Do you like him better now?

4:36 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Here's what I'm going to do if it goes to extra time. I've got it DVR'd, so I'll avoid the scoreline and just wait until later tonight to watch it.

4:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. This one keeps your team in the LC and should be a confidence booster

4:37 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I like him a lot better now.

4:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mowatt crosses and a volley from Bartley is tipped over by the keeper. Pond clears the corner for another that is headed out and a long range effort from Coyle is wide.

This one will be decided in ET.

4:39 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Burton now lead Bury 2-1 in ET

4:40 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's it at Kenilworth Road - a big upset with L2 Luton Town beating the recently relegated Aston Villa. RDM is not pleased.

4:41 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I can imagine . It's a long way from winning the CL four years ago. He , Kevin Bond , and Steve Clarke have their work cut out for them

4:43 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

ET is underway at both Higbury and Loftus Road.

4:43 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roofe has a close range effort blocked as the L1 side appear to be tiring.

So, I'm off now, mate. I'm going to avoid the result until later. Cheerio!

BUGGER!!!! DESMOND AT HIGHGBURY. SORRY BOB.

5:05 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was a great finish by Ashley Hunter, who had come on for Holloway, the scorer of the first goal. A long Leeds clearance was headed back and Johnson was played down the right. His pass was taken by Hunter , who turned and scored with a well placed first time shot from the edge of the box.

5:08 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Desmond at both Highbury and Loftus Road. As things stand, both matches are headed to penalties.

5:09 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A twenty pass possession results in a shot by Mowatt landing in the council housing. What's up with that?

5:12 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hunter has a long range effort take a wicked deflection off of Bamba and go inches over > Leeds fail to deal with the corner and and unconvincing punch by Green leads to a shot being deflected out for another corner.
