I doubt if there will be 8 changes in the next round ;)
Sounds like we played well though.

It was an excellent all round performance by the lads and if we can maintain this momentum then we would be unstoppable.
I for one can't wait for the draw.

The early stages of any cup give the manager and players to try things out and to see how well the reserves and youngsters can handle things. It's all good stuff but you do need a stronger team in the later stages. You don't want to be so near yet so far.

We could get Man Utd or Liverpool but the team I want here is Leeds United, now that would be something special.
