I think so - though going on the competition so far I don't think the EFL or Caribou people know themselves to be honest...

Plus, in the world of the Caribou Cup Wolves are in the Southern section where Villa are in the Northern section - despite Wolves being a fair few miles north of the soft Brummie Southerners. Wait till Jon Snow hears about this...

Imagine as a squad player, getting your chance in one of these games, then being old by high profile media names that you are devaluing the cup by playing.


I don't think Jeffrey Schlupp or Dan Gosling are the reason sales weren't very good for this round.
