That's tough, especially for a club with such a depressing record in this competition like us.

We need a real shot at this Cup this season what with having no European football and almost no matches at Goodison under the floodlights for night matches this season, how much of a downer is that??

I love the night matches at Goodison and I just hope we get past Barnsley and Reading to a more advanced round with a home match.

After survival and selling our diamonds this should be our second main aim.

It won't be, though, because the whole club's pathetic.

Everyone's on a downer over Stones, but you can't really call Reading tough though Jim. Suppose it's how serious we take this competition, and what happens between now and the end of the transfer deadline.

I just hope we get a decent window cleaner because Ours are caked in shite at the minute.

By far the easiest trophy for us to win - we crow on about EL via the league when it's much easier to win the LC.

We should make this a priority, neat Barnsley and Reading and we're one game away from the quarters.

If we can't beat Barnsley and Reading then we don't deserve to win the thing anyways.

This is a club that's lost in Cups to the likes of Fulham, Oldham, Brentford over the last few year's, so yes, Reading away under the circumstances is tough!!

Never mind Reading being tough, tonight's game is tough enough given our poor away record in this competition. In fact, given our record overall in this competition I don't fancy us against anyone away.

The Reading game is apparently on Tuesday 22nd September according to the Reading FC web site. Nothing on the EFC site yet.

Reading lost their opening game away to Brum 2-1. Since then, they have drawn 3 in a row. Beat Portsmouth 2-1 away (were 1-0 down) in last round of this cup. Seem to have a fairly young team, coached by Steve Clarke (ex WBA coach).

So definitely won't be an easy fixture (never is I hear you say). Hope we can get through and get a home fixture next!
