I have just been promoted to the premiership and have been stuck in the first round of league cup. Thought it was a bit strange, because i would expect to be in the second but first?

How did that happen? I had something similar in the Setanta Cup although it was through editing. They even had to play each other.

1. Go to the screen in FM that you want to upload.
2. Press Alt + F9
3. The screenshot should be saved in My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2008/screenshots
4. Upload the screenshot to an image hosting site e.g. photobucket
5. Post the direct link here so we can view it

Hope that helps.

This is my hypothesis:

Arsenal won the League Cup, but qualified for Champions League.

Therefore, the runners up of the League Cup would qualify for the UEFA Cup.

The runners up in your game were not a Premiership team?

However as they are in the UEFA Cup they would get a by from the 1st round of the League Cup this season (and 2nd round).

Therefore, to make up the numbers the brought one team "down" from the Premiership to make up the first round to its full number of ties.

Is this what happened?

The runners up in League cup dont go into Europe the plac eis instead added to the Premier League, this only happens with the FA cup

There are something like 8 Championship teams missing from that draw anyway so one of them would get put in before a Premiership club! Mebee the game is just snobish and refuses to recognise Barnet as being among the elite :p

Actually is it becuase a team belwo prem is in europe because they woudl then auto enter at round 3 so they need to make up even games for round 1?

As carboreeta said. It must be because a team below the premier league has qualifed for Europe. Check the finals of last season League Cup and FA Cup and if a team from outside of the premier league won last season's league cup or was in the final in the FA Cup.

so TS had qualified via the playoff, which makes him the lowest place premiership team?

TS = JML, the original poster. And the "Playoff" would be the Championship Playoff for the final promotion berth, basically, making JML the 20th-placed team in the Premiership .. so therefore, the one who got pulled in early to make up the numbers in the 1st Round.

I think that scenario is spot on. JML, can you confirm?
