After the draw was delayed by an hour and a half, they released a pre-recorded video. This farce of a sponsorship reaches new lows. :facepalm:

Chelsea vs Bournemouth
Arsenal vs West Ham
Leicester vs Manchester City
Bristol City vs Manchester United

I guess they are just trying to gradually kill this cup.

Wtf? So it means the draw already took place beforehand and recorded on video?

They were meant to live stream it on Twitter at 16:00 BST. "Minor technical errors" delayed it until 17:00. 18:00 comes about and still no stream, so they just recorded it and sent it out as a video instead.

In previous rounds, they've had a draw at 4am, drawn the same team twice, and gotten home/away allocations wrong. Laughing

I would be entirely in favor of killing this cup, 2 national cups is far too many imo

I rather they turn it into a semi-youth cup (which it kinda is) and have a rule of '6 U21 players' per team.

Sure, that could work too, but giving it equal footing to the FA cup is a bit much IMO

LMAO is this now the third time the draw didn't work out? 1st round and 2nd round draws also went wrong.
How hard can it be?
