I wish the League Cup incl Scots
 
 
It would be great if the Scots and English got to play each other once a year...cant understand why they dont integrate for at least 1 competition...

I think it would be great for fans travelling here or us up there. Great for TV viewing figures...
Add some spice and something different to the competition....
Plus ; we might get a weekend in Edinburgh !

What would you do about the Europa cup place that goes to the winners if teams from 2 different UEFA administrations are playing in the same competition? The European place is the only reason that the big clubs in the PL can be asred with it. Kind of a backstop. [:D]

It's a nice idea and I'd like to see it, but we've seen before what happens when Celtic and Rangers fans come to English clubs.

There'd be a world of aggravation.

The Scottish Challenge cup includes Irish, Welsh and English teams in it....

A few weeks ago, Sutton played that well known Scottish team, Bohemians [:D]

Lemmy ; surely we can't allow that to stop something good happening.

In terms of the Europa cup. I think the two best performing teams qualify from each country ; i.e. the finalists if scottish and english both qualify. Or if finalists both english and a scottish team get to the quarters ; by definition as the last scots team they qualify ; I think thats fair.

I do not care about the logistics of it; I'd love it to happen.

Imagine a Saturday evening away trip to Aberdeen, or a Tuesday night replay away to Cowdenbeath.

Better still, a weekend in Edinburgh for Hibs away.

Would be fantastic.

If I was a Scottish fan, I'd be upset at this prospect as realistically, the vast majority of teams from across the border would go crashing out at the first hurdle, even to significantly lower league opposition.
Why should a small Scottish side lose out on a few cup games, and the associated excitement and revenue, just so 2 or 3 big Scottish teams can have the odd novelty match against the English sides?

Isn't there going to be a Europa League 2 coming soon?

You might as well bring French teams in as well. And Italian.

Anglo Scottish Cup was dropped for a reason. Not for me.

League Cup qualifies you for Europa League 2 from 2021, I'm sure the big clubs wouldn't be upset to lose that "prize".

Not for me either.
There would be no weekends in Edinburgh for a League Cup played during the week.
There could be away trips to wonderful places like Falkirk or Greenock on a tuesday night.

“League Cup qualifies you for Europa League 2 from 2021, I'm sure the big clubs wouldn't be upset to lose that "prize".”

The team finishing 7th in the prem qualifies to UEL2. Cup winners go into UEL1.

Is that so?
Was sure I'd read the other day that they were considering downgrading the League Cup too.

Scottish teams do not have a European place from the league cup, the problem would be potentially losing ours if they win the joint competition

Instead of this I’d rather see another Euro cup, a pure knock out, where all teams from top two tiers of the big nations and top tier of weaker leagues were part of.

Maybe seed it like league cup, imagine the chance play at Camp Nou or SAN Siro.
