Yes totally. I thought for a long while they would need to start again as it was so unclear whether we had been drawn or not and thought initially it was Rotherham!! Yes they totally got that one wrong...

Has the LC draw always been done like that?
What's wrong with one picking the home team and the other the away team? - simples.

It's because they need to separate the seeded teams from the unseeded teams. They made a right hash of it though!

Hopefully the club will do £10 adults, £5 kids etc like previous years , otherwise with three in a week can't see a good crowd. Believe it depends on Donny agreeing but of they do, with the strength of our squad I could see over 8000 people being interested. Just a thought

The reason for the shambles could be that the draw was seeded (as was the first round). In this round,the unseeded teams had a pre draw to see whether they were home or away and then they were matched with the seeded teams. This is always a recipe for chaos.

Good call. In addition may be they could offer discounts for the first or first couple of games for the new stand once it is open. Say £10 for Doncaster plus £10 off for the first and/or second league match after opening of the stand. Hopefully our ticketing system/ smart card is sophisticated enough to do that. After all we need to fill the new stand to help create an electric atmosphere at home all around the ground.

O.K., but WHY seed some of the teams?
It should be like the F.A. Cup - great chance of giant-killings, much more entertaining and enjoyable for fans.
