Well, that's one competition out of the way

This is Adebayo Akinfenwa of Northampton, demonstrating that even men with severe head injuries can score against the Wanderers

Stupid F*cking Bolton (a UF original moniker) continue to draw our ire with their snooze-inducing style of play, and the sheer injustice that they manage to linger in the EPL rather comfortably despite having absolutely no players of merit whatsoever.

The final straw for me was the rather cynical decision to give up in last season's UEFA Cup, a tournament that they could have battled through a bit longer, in order to concentrate on securing their survival in the top flight for one more season. I can understand why they did it, but it still bothers me greatly.

Well, you can argue that they just threw another one as they bomb out of the Carling Cup in the 2nd round, falling to Northampton, a team currently in their own league struggles... a full two divisions below in League One.

Gary Megson feigned disappointment and disgust, but are we really surprised?

After the jump, highlights from Newcastle's 3-2 extra time win over Coventry, and perhaps a demonstration of how you escape embarrassment at the hands of a lower-league opponent. Megson should take notes.

Stupid F*cking Bolton: polluting a pitch near you since 1874.

Gotta love Coventry's version of the Colaship patented "long throw" header for goal.

Yeah, I agree with you kopper...that's just fun to watch.

Michael Owen off to a good start for the Magpies. What's the over/under on how long it takes him to get injured again?
