This week's Carling Cup schedule & Live thread!

2je30ux_medium

United head east to Scunthorpe to take on The Iron at Glanford Park on Wednesday.  Scunthorpe was picked to be relegated from the Championship last season, but were able to finish the season five points clear of the drop zone.  They were picked for relegation again this year and are currently sitting 15th in the 24 team league.  They are coming off of a 2-0 defeat away to Swansea on the weekend.  Here is the lineup they used for that match...the starting eleven remaining the same from their 4-0 stomping of Sheffield United earlier in the week:

Murphy, Byrne, Mirfin, Canavan, Nolan, Josh Wright, O'Connor, Togwell (Grant 86), Collins (Woolford 67), Forte, Dagnall (Jones 87)

As far as live television is concerned, Fox Soccer Plus will have the Spurs/Arsenal on Tuesday and our game on Wednesday.  Thursday morning at midnight (or Wed. night) they'll have Chelsea/Newcastle.

[UPDATE]

Since we're already on the front page, we'll just turn this into the live thread.  With the game being mid-day, mid-week and on Fox Soccer Plus, I don't imagine alot of you will actually see the game...that's okay, hang around here and you'll be in the know. 

Sky Sports has Kuszczak in goal, Owen and Macheda up front and possibly Gibson, Smalling, de Laet, Rafael and Ferdinand.  As previously mentioned, Bebe is expected start on the bench.
