Quoted from oldun
Pardon my ignorance, but is this a separate competition to the League Cup? If so is it needed at all?


Yes, different competition with less teams but they are clearly testing the waters here and it won't end with this competition if it's not nipped in the bud.

Please do not forget that we are being led by a devious unscrupulous group of people at EFL-they will not stop unless fans stop them.

Use your voice to add to the petition, and vote with your feet, and hands held firmly onto your wallets. That is the only language they understand.

Is it though? It's not about getting people through the turnstiles, they've admitted attendances are low as it is. It's about worldwide tv viewers. Most of the big boys have their own tv channels I have noticed which they have to fill with something. I guess it's these games that they want to televise, either with a mainstream subscription channel like Sky/BT/Prem Sport, or through the club's own channels and we'd play the part of a rent-a-crowd.

Think Rob is right there. It's all about promoting the brand to them and i notice the word stakeholders was used in that piece on Mariners Player. That word should tell you all you need to know.

It's also worth saying that the 1 million pounds they have put into the competition is equivalent to about  £20,000 for each club. We as fans raised nearly 6 times that for our club last season before a ball was kicked and the club ought to have a serious think about that.

Don't know who Ascend is or whether he/she really exists-if they do, take your head from up your backside and think it through


Who the effin hell do you think you are. I couldn't care less whether you think I exist or not. You need to have a little look at yourself talking down to people like that.

It's a forum, a discussion board. A place for opinions.

When an opinion doesn't meet with yours, doesn't mean you have to get on your high horse with verbal rubbish


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

Statement Bingo !!

No comment
Due to our belated invite as the newest League club there wasnt time to have a full board meeting before we voted yes to the money.
While we understand this is an emotive issue for fans i (we) have to look at the overall viability of the football club.
The fans should be grateful we are in this competition at all.
We voted no to the proposal, but we can reveal Scunny voted yes.
I have put my own personal fortune into the club and the extra monies from this one season proposal only minimise any additional benign loans i may have to make.
The club have done a deal with Hull to have access to their squad players in return for voting yes.
The fans dont understand the running of a football club on a daily basis.
