I'd have thought our team for this would be fairly strong?

Give Brunt a runout, start Field and Leko (Kane is with the England Under 17s).

Luton are doing decently so far this season - W5   D3   L3   F20   A12   

But they've only won 1 of their last 5. I'm not sure if they have any internationals missing? I doubt it.

I don't agree with our youth team being in the competition, but as they are I think there's a chance of a good result here. Either way, it's good for the lads to get some game time.

Added to what i wrote last night, it looks like Boaz, Jonas, McManaman and Gardner will be around the squad also, but i thought we could only play 3? Is it 3 at one time?

dont know for sure but I think it's 3 outfield players, so you can have a Keeper as well.

Well if the team has Boaz, Jonas, McManaman, Leko, Field & Gardner in it. Plus some of our promising kids there's a chance there. I found we were 7/2 with BetFred, so I've put £5 on it. Makes it a bit more exciting.

Rule is minimum 6 under 21's, so 5 seniors can play.

Nah, I thought he would too, but he's not in the squad. Not sure why. Maybe what with Luton seeing this as a competitive game they didn't want to risk his knee?

I know it's a competition that doesn't really matter but if our Academy is good shouldn't it be able to compete with league 2 teams?

I used to think that way too..but it's just a run out and a chance for some seniors to keep or regain their fitness and to give the youngsters some vital competitive minutes....I do get disappointed when we lose even in friendlies but think that the bigger picture revolves around game time and the ultimate goal ..staying in the Premiership...

Luton side was woeful as well, 6-7 U20 were playing, a few of them had played first team football but still we should be competiting with them, By the looks of it we were pounded, ye we were missing 3 or so key u20 players but we shoudnt be losing this match

I must admit to being puzzled as to why Wilson, Field and Leko weren't playing last night? They need to keep their match fitness up as much as Olsson, Gardner and McManaman and you'd hope their inclusion would have made us a bit more competitive.

You would imagine that the point of entering this competition was to give our best younger players additional experience in games that have a different dimension to the youth league they're involved in.

Wilson is with the England u-17s (just beaten Germany 8-1). Don't know about the others.

Did anybody from these boards actually go to watch this and tick off a ground?

As an aside, what a shocking penalty from Callum McManaman  :o .

No. Haven't been to Millwall or Luton so initially I was interested in going but the more I thought about it the more I hated the idea of us being in the competition and didn't think it would be right to go to the games.
