League Cup 4th Cup Watch!





Afternoon, chaps! It's League Cup 4th Round time. There are a number of intriguing fixtures on tap today, but my eyes will be firmly on Elland Road. It's been nearly a decade since my beloved LUFC got to the 5th Round. Norwich City are the significant 4th Round obstacle. They're currently flying high in second in the Championship, while we're languishing in mid-table. Norwich, more than any other club, have raided our youth academy and senior squad, so that will add an extra edge to the affair.

Come on, you Whites!

Daniel Sturridge has fired Liverpool into the lead in tonight's big fixture. Grujic nipped in to shoot and when Spurs keep Wimmer parried it, Sturridge was in the right place to poke it across the line.

YESSSSSS!!!!!!

Marcus Antonsson has scored a priceless goal for us - his first of the season - very much against the run of play. Great time to score, too, on the stroke of half-time.
