Carling Cup Petition sign now

Dear Mr Thompson

You will find enclosed in this document a detailed plan of what we think will make the Carling Cup more interesting and give lower league teams the chance of silverware.

As many Premiership teams do not class this trophy as a priority it is in effect wasted upon them, even these lesser strength Premiership sides can outclass lower league teams.

What we are proposing is that the competition be made exclusive to Coca-Cola League 1 and 2 sides, this is beneficial to these sides as it gives them a realistic chance of winning a competition without the higher placed league teams easily brushing them away. This set-up would also aid both Premiership and Championship teams who could use this time to prepare for an important upcoming league game or in the case of Premiership sides, European games.

Some sides use the Carling Cup as an opportunity to try out younger talent on a bigger stage, this may be good for the sides but the reserve games can be just as useful for this aand there is nothing stopping them arranging mid-season friendlies against fellow clubs.

If some clubs do put out 1st team players there is an increased possibility that they could pick up an injury for example the case of Florent Sinama Pongolle against Watford in the semi-final of this years competition, also what ties in with this argument is the fact that another 90 minutes for a player could result in a drop in fitness thus decreasing their chances of playing in a more important upcoming game.

These are the arguments that we believe should contribute to a total revamp of the Carling Cup competition, we hope you have put aside some time to read this and find our points useful.

Thankyou

Your Faithfully

Tom & David
