The English League Cup. It's always played second fiddle to the FA Cup, and in recent years some high-profile managers have even questioned whether it should be axed, but every team who wins the League Cup always seem to be pretty chuffed with themselves to be fair, including former European Cup winners and UEFA Cup winners.

Above is our winners graphic, and below the full list of winners and runners up...
