With the EPL teams entering the mix of the League Cup this week, it's a good time to start this one. I mean why the heck not, this is among the reasons why English teams are going to be ground down as the season wears on.

Just a reminder:

Or the EFL dates for the fall ("week of" dates):

Round One – 10 August, 2022
Round Two – 24 August, 2022 (13 non European EPL teams join this round)
Round Three – 9 November, 2022 (7 European EPL teams join this round)
Round Four – 21 December, 2022
Quarter-Final – 11 January, 2023
Semi-Final First Leg – 25 January, 2023
Semi-Final Second Leg – 1 February, 2023 (two-leg ties? WTF is this shit in THIS year of all seasons!?!?!?!?!!!!!)
Final – 26 February, 2023

Or the FA Cup "week of" dates:

Round One "Proper" - 5 Nov 2022
Round Two - 26 Nov 2022
Round Three - 7 Jan 2023 (EPL teams join this round)
Round Four - 28 Jan 2023
Round Five - 1 March 2023
Quarter-Finals - 18 March 2023

Damn, I didn't realize the schedule and it sucks for Matt Turner.  I thought the 3rd round of the EFL was in September, and with FA Cup starting in November too its really limiting the number of chances in goal for him before this stupid ass Qatar WC.

We all know what needs to be done and I know just the man to do it.

ESPN+ covered a lot of games from this weekend's first round.

Round 2 sees no new teams just those that survived Round 1, which was the 32 teams that made it through qualification, plus the 48 teams in League 1 and League 2.

EPL and Championship teams will join in Round 3.

Today was the draw for Round 2, the results (with a bunch of teams you don't know and a select few you do):

Curzon Ashton or Cambridge United vs Grimsby Town
Wrexham AFC vs Farnborough
Accrington Stanley vs Barnet or Chelmsford City
Ebbsfleet United vs Fleetwood Town
Bracknell Town or Ipswich Town vs Buxton
Barnsley vs Crewe Alexandra
Forest Green Rovers vs Alvechurch
Portsmouth vs Milton Keynes Dons
Shrewsbury Town vs Peterborough United or Salford City
Solihull Moors or Hartlepool United vs Harrogate Town
King's Lynn Town vs Stevenage
Charlton Athletic vs Stockport County
Bristol Rovers vs Boreham Wood
Dagenham & Redbridge vs AFC Fylde or Gillingham
Woking or Oxford United vs Exeter City
Sheffield Wednesday vs Mansfield Town
Weymouth or AFC Wimbledon vs Chesterfield
Burton Albion vs Chippenham Town
Walsall vs Carlisle United AFC
Newport County AFC vs Torquay United or Derby County

These games are to be played at the end of November.

Because the EPL players don't have enough games, the EPL and Championship both join the 3rd round of the FA Cup. The draw was earlier this week. They play the week they get back from Qatar.

Notable games this round:

City v Chelsea
Brentford v West Ham
Liverpool v Wolves
Man U v Everton
There are 3 or 4 teams (depending on 1 replay) from outside the EFL still alive, one is Wrexham, who bummer only drew a Championship team
Coventry City v Wrexham
If that replay goes Dagenham & Redbridge's way, they will face Leicester City
