Quoted from KingstonMariner

Better, if anything, the money comes from the state (and taxation), if society is seen to benefit by the continuance of lower league football.


Taxation is used for the purpose of the NHS, funding the Police, building hospitals, ffs this is absolutely ridiculous...are you proposing an increase in taxation, or distribution of tax in a different manner, which part of the welfare state would you take from?

Manchester City chief executive again pushes B team agenda, ‘Maybe the crisis will give us the opportunity to solve issues’

https://www.theguardian.com/fo.....l-says-citys-soriano

Moaning on that the football league isn't sustainable enough. It's a shame football league clubs haven't got endless streams of oil money too or the ability to get around FFP by setting up inflated sponsorship deals from their owners own mega-businesses eh Ferran?

Genuine question...

What should we do if the Prem only offer us a rescue package on the condition that B teams are allowed into the pyramid?

I suspect you are fishing for a 'tell them to stuff it' reply here but first of all if it's a case of saving Grimsby Town Football Club and / or considering all our fellow lower league clubs and their existence too then it is perhaps not that easy (we could possibly do without a handout but could others)



Well I did try to tell you all Holloway was a mistake

I've got a feeling that the EFL are suddenly getting behind the campaign to let fans in because the deal on the table with the Premier League isn't a good one.

As we are told by Day, we had a healthy bank balance pre lock down and we will survive this season regardless....so.....two main options;

do we play hard ball, reject any deal based on including B teams, struggle through with no bail out on the basis that at some point in the future , maybe even if its next season, that crowds will be back and we will be self sufficient again and meanwhile let other sides struggle without a bail out and maybe they will go into admin this season enhancing our chances of remaining a League Two side whilst keeping on top of finances

fold like a house of cards and take the deal whatever strings attached as it means Day and other similar/like minded Chairmen wont have to find the money themselves to survive

Whilst i believe under normal circumstances there would be enough objections to reject any such b team deal.....i have very little faith at the moment that greedy/tight chairmen wouldnt sell their souls for short term survival.

Even though there’s billions going into the PL there’s billions flooding out . There’s plenty of PL teams who need every £ available thanks to their stupidity with spiralling wages and agents fees etc etc . It’s a gravy train full of leaches . Personally I’d laugh my head off if one them goes pop .
They’ve got no intentions of bailing the EFL out . Look what happened with Fulham’s parachute payments for this season . It worked out at £1.7m each and they all wanted it back when the EFL asked for it to help out .

I’m not sure that you could “place” them into the pyramid like AFC Wimbledon surely they’d have to start at the bottom, then again if somewhere in the stack they split North & South then maybe.

I wouldn’t want to see it then again I think it’s as perverse  as clubs like Huddersfield moaning on National TV that they have money problems after p1ssing away their parachute money.

So finally the Arab owner of Man C has come out to tell us how to run our League.
We all knew they were pushing for B teams.

Time for the government to grow balls and say English Premier League clubs should be owned by English people.

Secondly, the EFL should just say NO. We are not going to have B teams, so sodomist off.

Thirdly, if the government or the EPL are not going to fund the efl crisis, fans should turn up in their millions and meet outside EFL grounds and demand entry.

Nobody should break the law, and we should all keep socially distanced with masks. Just make the point.

This issue has been in the public domain for months and it needs fixing.

The authorities need to get a grip or the fans will deal the matter in their own way.

This is not a rant. It’s a pragmatic proposal to get football back to a fan based setup. If foreign multimillionaires lose money tough sh**

According to Dave Roberts on Cod Almighty last week -

As part of our memorandum of understanding we have a written declaration that the club will never vote for B teams into the Football League structure

So would be interesting to see if the club stick to that.
