No Carling-branded champagne bottles on Merseyside this season
Fate dished out a healthy dose of karma to any Liverpool fans who had spent a little to long revelling in Everton’s Carling Cup defeat to League One side Brentford. The Reds suffered their own humiliation as they were knocked out of the competition by League Two outfit Northampton.
Roy Hodgson’s side (although he will currently tell anyone who will listen that they’re not his side yet) lost 4-2 on a penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw.
Debutant goalkeeper Brad Jones looked particularly dodgy and penalty misses from David N’gog and Nathan Eccleston ensured it was embarrassment all round for Merseyside clubs in the Carling Cup third round.
