Apologies if this has already been posted but from what I can see:

Football League fixtures are being published at 9.00 am 21st June 2017 (Premier League a week earlier)

The Season starts on Friday 4th August 2017 and ends on 5th May 2018 (Premier 12th August to 18th May)

The play-off dates have reverted back to the bank holiday weekend 26th to 28th May 2018

Premiership finishing on Sunday 13th May, which is why the playoff has reverted back with the Cup Final presumably a week earlier than it was this year, on 19th May 2018.

The playoffs have been reversed this year starting with the Championship on the Saturday .

Carabao Cup starts: week commencing 7th August 2017
Checkatrade Trophy starts: week commencing 28th August 2017

You obviously missed this marketing bollocks:

Pairoj Piempongsant, Chairman of Intercarabao, stated: “The EFL Cup embodies the very essence of British football consciousness. All 92 clubs in the country competing in the first major cup competition of the season, culminating in the final at Wembley.

"The EFL Carabao partnership represents a unique platform to expand the Carabao brand nationally and globally; and thus leveraging the universal 'fighting spirit' of football with a truly powerful global platform that will bring new awareness to the EFL internationally, while also establishing Carabao as a major player in the global Energy Drinks market.”

Yes I did, but thanks for that. What a load of tosh! Where's the good old League Cup gone?

Oh I know - I've had it circled in my diary as 'Troll Every Orient Fan I Know' Day for quite some time.

Christ how is Phil Cox going to be able to keep his run of consecutive home and away matches going, with this late notice of a game in Thailand:smile:

Strangely enough I purchased some 'Carabao' for the first time ever today without even knowing they were sponsoring the League Cup. It is indeed made in Thailand
