Well they are seeded after all, felt sorry for Jose he is so unlucky, the 2 Mancs had to flip a coin to see which one had to play away this round.

Come on , give us a proper allocation. In fact do what you like I'm turning up anyway. Spurs, away at Wembley, night kick off in the cup, we should do a Koln unlike their lame efforts at the LS last season on a Friday night when they are going for the title. Mouthy flash wannabe *****.

What sort of allocation are we likely to get for this? 10% for cup matches, non?

This is the problem. Don't they have limited capacity? 50/60k?

10% for League Cup and 15% for FA Cup. However - Spurs only have full attendance licence for Wembley for 27 matches (which they will keep for league and Champs league). So may only have capacity of 50,000 - and due to segregation issues we'd probably end up with the 3,000 that they are set up as away allocation for league matches.

I would be disappointed if we didnt go for it and put out an almost full strength side. They have more commitments than us and if we play anywhere near our first eleven I think we win. I dont think playing Sakho weakens us particularly so he could stay in. Otherwise, however, I would like to see our big guns out for this one.

Which will end up with another 3k trying to get it the home ends...

It's not that's hard is it, larger allocation to keep all together and hold back for 15 mins like they use to.

Depends if they've got the whole "previous booking" situation. I'd love to just turn up and ask a steward to let me join the away fans.

Well, 19 league games leaves 8 spare. 3 CL group games, 3 more if they go to the semis (unlikely) so minimum 2 more available. Would they save them both for FA Cup? Surely West Ham in the cup is a game likely to sell tickets?

Precisely why I suggested Levy might offer to switch the tie to our ground .

He knows they won't sell that many tickets to their supporters - they'll make a point of ensuring this is put down as a "nothing" game , not as important as Madrid and the likes .He also knows that by switching venues the onus falls on us to fill a ground for a league cup game .

And when Brady falls for it , and turns on the "magic under the lights " b*llocks , we'll have 50,000 kids turn up .

And spurs fans will laugh forever at our "cup final" .

According to League Cup rules we have the right to claim 10% of whatever the capacity is.

So if it is limited to 50k we'll get 5000 which isn't that bad.

(Saying this, knowing our luck it'll probably will be restricted by police and we will end up with 3k or something :( )

Hoping we get as many as possible so I stand a chance of getting tickets on 6 points.

Chuffed with this draw, we'll take big numbers whatever the allocation and it will be a good night out regardless of the result!

Why would any club risk destroying their reputation for an easy draw in the ****ing Carabao cup? :lol: People on here love a good conspiracy theory

A very late night if it's an 8pm TV kick off and goes to ET. Spurs fans I know hate the awkward trip to Wembley which might explain why only 23k went to the Barnsley game.

I believe we'll get about 5k. That would be my guess.

6 points will be enough for the interested poster.
