Home to Wimbledon if we win the group. Away to Milton Keynes if runners up.

...or no-one if we're out of it :thumbs:

Runners up would be about right though, away to a sham club in a sham competition :facepalm:

If the fans won't go to the matches, we'll take the matches to the fans.

Milton Keynes probably quite disappointed they've drawn Chelsea. Tonight they're coming up against Eduardo, Kenedy, Charly Musonda and Michy Batshuayi. All of whom I believe have played in the Champions League before.

I wonder what £35m Batshuayi feels about playing in this competition!?!

Just a continuation of the farce really.

A tournament designed for the smaller clubs and re-branded to help bring along U21's into senior football and Chelsea roll out a Belgian 24 year old they bought for £35 million.

Those in the ivory towers will be delighted at Chelsea's progress, secretly hoping to Hazard appear in the final for them no doubt. If the smaller clubs hadn't guessed by now they are an inconvenience to the footballing hierarchy allowing this kind of thing to happen should confirm it.

Like most football fans i'm no fan of the MK franchise, however, a semi final or a Wembley day out will mean more to them than any Premier League youngsters, who get to play and train at the best locations day in and day out.

If nothing else, this competition gave the MKD's defenders a great opportunity to play up against a £35m striker even if that wasn't the initial intention.

Thats what pre season friendlies are for and the magic of cup draws.

Not a formulaic competition that is designed for the lower division teams and of late Under 21 academies, it was never designed for the big clubs to use in a bid to get their key players match fit.
