image for Carling Cup: Investigation into Welsh team reaching Final
Wales: How the Daily Express might report the story

Scottish football manager Kenny McDalglish has called on football authorities to investigate how a Welsh team have found themselves to be playing in the English League Cup Final.

Liverpool reached the final last week with an aggregate win over Manchester City. In the other semi-final Cardiff City beat Crippled Alice. But Dalglish has called on the FA to investigate how the opponents in the final will actually be from Wales.

A club insider told the spoof "Liverpool have still got a chip on their shoulders after the Luis Suarez eight match ban - I suspect they're looking for a stick to bash the FA with"

An FA insider told the spoof "Here we go again - Liverpool think they've been hard done by - would they prefer an easier game - maybe TNS are free that weekend - oh hang, they're Welsh as well. Liverpool seem to forgot they won two FA Cups, two league cups and two Community shields at the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff between 2001-2006 while Wembley was closed.

Crippled Alice fan Rob Kelly, landlord of the York Bell told the spoof "This is outrageous, a Welsh team in the English league cup final!
Perhaps we should rename it the Anglo-Welsh Cup. What next, a Welsh team in the Premier league?

Dave Mears, 39, a pyschiatric nurse from Plaistow said "Typical of the Football Association - this is mental"
