Rovers are a seeded team for the first round draw of the Carabao Cup, and you can watch Emmanuel Petit draw the balls live from Thailand! :hyper:

Probably.

Anyway, they'll be kicking off the league cup away at Mowbray's former club Coventry this time around.

Wow... another grumble fest. At least we can go halves on some "[Insert Name of Owner] Out" banners.

Is this just a new sponsorship for what was the paint trophy?

Whenever the dramatic fall from grace of last season doesn't feel like it has quite sunk in yet - I like to remember that last year the academy was playing in the paint trophy by invitation and this year the first team will be obliged to do so.
