Tonight`s Carling Cup opponents are arguably more famous for a 1980s milk commercial than they are (or was) for anything they had achieved on a football field.

The advert went a little something like this:

(Two Liverpudlian boys in Liverpool shirts looking for something to drink after a game of football.)

Boy 1: “Got any lemonade?”
Boy 2: “If you want!” (he takes a bottle of milk from the fridge)
Boy 1: “Milk…..Ugh! ”
Boy 2: “It’s what Ian Rush drinks. ”
Boy 1: “Ian Rush? ”
Boy 2: “Yeah, an’ he says if I didn’t drink lots of milk, when I grow up I’ll only be good enough to play for Accrington Stanley! ”
Boy 1: “Accrington Stanley? … Who are they??! ”
Boy 2: ” Exactly! “

Hopefuly Watford will not be underestimating Stanley tonight??
