With the English League Cup rebranding once again this season - this time to the Carabao Cup, there was always going to be teething problems.
Fans had already been forced to stay up to the early hours of the morning back in August to find out who their teams were drawn against in the third round.
That's because the draw was held in Beijing, 5000 miles away from England and fans weren't very happy with it.
There appeared to be fewer problems with the fourth round draw and after the conclusion of those ties, eight clubs were waiting to find out who they'd play in December's quarter finals.
That draw was supposed to take place at 4 pm UK time on Thursday, but was delayed for well over an hour and wasn't even made live.
The sponsors claimed that it was delayed due to a "minor technical glitch" on Twitter, but eventually only posted a pre-recorded video of the draw 10 minutes after it had been made.
And not even managers of the remaining eight sides were allowed to watch it live. Like the rest of us, they found out on Twitter.
And that didn't impress Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who has revealed his displeasure at Thursday's draw.
"I'm not (happy with the draw)," the Portuguese boss said, per the Daily Mail.
"First of all because I didn't watch the draw, and what I watched was not a live draw, it was some images of a draw. But, no, I didn't like it.
"I like the draw, I like to see it, I like to feel it. I didn't like it, not at all."
It's fair to say he's not happy. And neither were the fans. Some have even claimed that the draw was staged because all four of the big teams left in the pot avoided each other.
Unsurprisingly, the Football League defended themselves on Twitter, with a statement that read:
"@EFL confirms that yesterday's @Carabao_Cup Round Five Draw was in no way compromised. Draw conducted under same strict conditions."
