Is this the latest name of the League Cup? And what or whom is Carabao?

LB apparently it is an energy drink first produced in 2002 in Thailand and is now their second most popular drink.

And yes it is the new name for the league cup.

Chelsea and Reading are both sponsored by Carabao as well.

Amazing what you can find out on Wikipedia. Its basically Thai red bull and even translates as "red buffalo". A Carabao is a water buffalo native to the Philipines but no idea if its carabao flavour. They used to be shirt sponsors of Reading (the drink, not the bovines).

In the interests of science I suggest we draw straws to see who gets to taste it and report back.

Tasting like water buffalo must be preferable to tasting like Red Bull.

Home to Aston Villa. Not the glamour tie against Leeds Utd that say may have preferred but it will do for the start of our cup run.

Had a look down the list of teams we could play just before the draw and though "I quite fancy Villa". Spooky.

Very pleased with the Cup Draw.

I have just looked up the last time that I saw the U's play Villa in the then League Cup.

Layer Road 3 Dec 1974 Quarter Final in front of 11,812.

Ray Graydon scored a 35 yarder which turned out to be the winning goal.

Bring it on.

Bwildered we have played Villa since in 1979, but I didn't watch those games.
The reason I remember the quarter final is that Villa then played Chester in a two leg semi final (games that Colchester were capable of winning) and went on to defeat Norwich City in the final.

Perhaps the closest that we have ever come to glory in the League Cup.

My grandson's first footie kit was a U's little dribbler babygro.
His father, my son, a Holte Ender, then bought him Aston Villa kit.
I threatened to report such child abuse to Childline.
The response was the same photograph soon appeared in a Villa programme.
Now we draw Villa in the cup!

It's winner takes all....the right to buy his next footie kit at the loser's expense.
Odds are against me, but is my son a gambler?

In view of your grandson's future wellbeing this is now a must win game!

Yep, that was the furthest we've been in the League Cup, quarter-final at Layer Rd in '74 against Villa. I was at that game as well, and the 0-0 4th round home draw against Southampton before that (too young for Dominey's 1-0 replay winner at The Dell though).

Apart from the fact that Walker, Cook, Packer, Svarc, Froggatt etc. played brilliantly, my lasting memory of the Villa game (from the front of the barside) was the Layer Rd end being evicted over the wall before kick-off by stewards/ police because of the huge numbers of Villa fans in there, and a very elderly and friendly pair of Villa supporters who were alongside me at the front of the barside.

Additionally the £75K TV fee will come in very handy for the U's coffers.

Have a sneak feeling that we will shade the game.
