Carlsberg Cup on the "Trot"

No. It doesn't stand for "Big Whoop"

Now we know why Owen Coyle left Burnley to manage Bolton Wanderers mid-season! Not because he wanted to return to his old haunts and have a better opportunity at Premiership survival - it was because he wanted to manage a game in Toronto! BMO Field is after all "The Wembley of Southern Ontario"!
Yes, as confirmed by Toronto FC today, this year's Carlsberg Cup will feature the English Premier League's 14th placed team Bolton. That might say something about MLSE’s cocky confidence in it’s season ticket renewals considering the likes of Manchester United, AC Milan and Tottenham are playing other MLS sides. While "The Trotters" may not be the most glamorous draw in the world they do have some quality players such as Finnish keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen, Johan Elmander, Kevin Davies and Yankee international Stuart Holden. They also have Danny Shittu - get your chants in order sirs.
