"approved at the English Football League’s annual general meeting in Portugal"

And a free holiday to boot! It's not just at FIFA that corruptions rife.

The more i think about it, the more flipping livid i get. If you want to blood your bright young things, stop signing so many of them and loan out the ones with potential to teams at our level. Also stop throwing money at everything to get your way. Fans in the lower leagues don't give a shite. If they did, they would go and support a Premier League side. The twits just don't get it and if our board had any hand in this decision, i will be extremely drunk off with them.

So getyourfactsright, where does the club stand on this issue?

Quoted from Bigdog

We need to get this signed by as many people as possible. Share it on social media and raise awareness. We need to put our feet down now or they'll think they can ride roughshod over us with future proposals that benefit the elite and cheapen our competitions and very existence. The day Town entertain Man United Under 21's in a competitive fixture is the day I stop going.

Grimsby till I die.

It's a right load of male masturbation.

These fornicators are ruining the game for greed. I'm no Luddite (although I was born in Louth), but you make change for the better, not to support the vanity projects of billionaires. There would be a very simple way to sort the English talent question and that would be to ensure the majority of people on the pitch at any one time are from the home nation. You have as many non-English players in your squad as you wish, thus avoiding restriction of trade questions.

Batch, Crombie, Moore K, Wiggington, Cumming, Waters, Bonnyman, Ford, Emson, Drinkell, Whymark. Love you all, You are the reason I'm on here. You've had help from Todd, Handyside, Futcher P, Groves, Mendonca, Macca etc etc etc. Up The Mariners!!!!!!!!!

Stupid idea. I have no interest in watching Town play a reserve side.  The whole purpose of the this Cup was to create a trophy for the bottom 2 leagues.  Now it is completely devalued and it treats clubs like ours with condescension as if we only exist to provide a run out for PL youths and stiffs.  If they want to play competitive football, get a transfer or loan deal.  

I realise that if we drew Chelsea in the FA Cup, they might put out a 'weakened' side but if we win, the record says we beat Chelsea.  I don't care if we win or lose v Chelsea U21s.

I would like to see proper ties between 2 league teams to be supported but an empty stadium vs U21 teams.  

Whilst I agree with all the comments on here, it's a bag of shite.

I think you will find that in past seasons in the early stages many clubs played their reserve teams.

I will never watch this format, even if Town get to a Wembley final.

That prat in charge of the EFL should be sacked-he is a bumbling idiot.

so we get this excrement dumped on us without even asking us, who do they think they are New Labour!

The problem is a lot of young fans will think this is great!!  Town v Man U etc, the club will promote this  with cheap tickets and free hot dogs and before we know it this will become the norm within a few years, and then we will forget even thinking about boycotting it.

We must fight this on a large scale.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Promise a man someone else's fish and he votes Labour.
