In China.

You couldn't imagine anyone could devalue this trophy more than they already had prior to this season, but the new sponsor of it has taken things to a whole new level of farce.

 


Optimistic as ever

Correct the clubs took the money and the FA Cup and League Cup have been ruined for ever.

Nothing to do with the clubs, the football league gets the money from the sponsor.

The winner only gets about £100K prize money, which isn't enough to pay two or three players to actually play in it, never mind a full squad.

The league said: "We understand that not everyone will agree on the timing of this week’s round-three draw, but in staging in this way, it will give the competition both the maximum exposure in the UK, Chinese and Southeast Asian markets"

Maximum exposure at 4.15 am and it's not on TV? Even in China and Thailand they'll all be at work.
