Are you a troll Vinny? B-teams pose a genuine threat to the long-term sustainability of small football clubs and they snook in this change after their League 3 Grand Design was  stamped out. Thin end of the wedge if ever there was one and a good old 'Blowed you fan's we'll do what we want.'

And it won't help blood any youngsters for England -they should rectify the monster that is the Premier League not spread their greedy tanticles further down the pyramid.

Or do we have an archaic view. I appreciate the FA don't put enough money in lower down and never have, however appreciate that they have doubled prize money in the early rounds of the FA Cup. The involvement of these larger clubs in this competition is a small step and I agree the introduction of B teams into the football league goes too far. But this isn't a step too far. It's a sensible and understandable step which on the face of it is correct, and all I can judge on is what they are doing now not what they might do. Because if I'm honest I don't think it will change anything if there are 500 or 5000 fans at Blundell Park on a Tuesday night.

My archaic view if that is what you call it, is that it can be never right for ANY football club to play another clubs 'B', Under 21/23 in a competitive fixture. We have a proud 140 year history and although that is in the past, it is what makes our club and many others like us.

This competition in its various guises gave clubs the chance for a Wembley appearance, that chance has clearly been lessened by the inclusion of a Chelsea, or Man City X1.
All I can say is that you must be looking at a very different face if you think this is correct.

Akheem rose must start for me. Weve brought him back for a reason, he’s match fit, been scoring goals, need more than just late sub appearances.

If we have an archaic view then it shared by every single club in the competition bar those bandwagon hoggers from Lincoln, who just don’t get it, and with their seemingly low levels of iq, maybe never will. The only crowds of any substance have been for the semi and finals of this competition since it changed format. This is just people wanting to see their team at Wembley. Some that have never been to Wembley before i.e. Lincoln, or those not been there for decades i.e. Coventry.

Will having 5000 there rather than 500 make a difference, Imho it very much will. The EFL and that scumbag Harvey will see it as acceptance. They will see it as justification. And they will see it as the first step on lower league clubs lying on their back and having their tummies tickled for some extra cash. It doesn’t matter what the chairman say, this is the first step to trying to get B teams into the league. Money talks, this is possibly our only chance to make a difference and to make our voices heard (or not as the case may be).

Here's how you save the English game, or at least help England to perform better: make it mandatory that each Premier team has to play X amount of homegrown player's introducing a couple of new starlets each year (German League does similar). Not tamper with our footballing pyramid that contains many great and historic clubs with superb followings.

We are not Spain where most the lower division teams have barely 1000 hardcore followers -some a couple of hundred.

But they wont potentially 'devalue the product' of the Premier League forcing the playing of youngster's as they want it crammed full of the best talent from worldwide to continue their vast income streams.

The lower leagues aren't broken, so don't need fixing -it's the top flight that needs sorting.

Pi$$ off Harvey and Co.
