The entire structure of our pyramid will collapse with B teams anyway so I’d happily tell those rats in the PL to stuff their deal.

Don't know if I would bother anymore if B teams were allowed into the EFL.

I am all fo letting the fans back in.  Just my opinion, but its fine for me to go to the pub with 5 mates from opening time until 10pm, infact i could go to 20 pubs with 5 mates, and they could be a differant 5 mates in each pub. (up to 14 hours drinking time), be indoors all the time and not have to wear a mask while at my table. Yet 2000 people from the same town cant sit outdoors socially distanced in a nearly 10,000 cap stadium for 90 mins. Its balderdash. Id feel much safer sat in BP for 90 mins than I would mc donalds.

Pretty rich  Man City saying it's not sustainable when the EFL has run for over 100 years and lost very few clubs during that time. On the other hand his club has millions pumped into it and is clearly not self-funded.

Quoted from Boris Johnson


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?




Taxation is used for whatever purpose Parliament decides. Did you not realise that? They take decisions all the time. Maybe it’s difficult to get your head round.

Ever heard of funding for arts and culture? Your namesake promise over a billion for the arts a while back. You know millions of people voted ‘leave’ supposedly to protect the British way of life and culture. Football is probably one of the biggest components of that culture.

There’s plenty of people with more money than they need.

Besides I’d rather have nothing than take ‘handouts’ from the PL. That’d be a Trojan Horse - you can look that one up for yourself.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Weirdly and despite the current ramping up of restrictions I've got a feeling that we'll be back in stadiums quite soon, simply because the pressure is building up on the Government.  Things like being able to watch games in enclosed cinemas but not in open-air stadiums is just bizarre.

This Government reacts to what the popular opinion says and will do anything to try and appear to be doing the right thing.  It'll be reduced capacity for sure and I imagine with some extra Draconian type measures installed but it wouldn't surprise me if we're back in for the Harrogate game...

Like the majority I am against B teams being admitted and struggle to understand why a competitive reserve team league is no longer considered appropriate and/or suitable for purpose. Given the size of the modern squad that should mean some quality players turning out and for fans of that club worth a watch.

Don’t know why but if B teams were to happen I have always assumed they would take the form of Premier clubs adopting an EFL club, giving them financial support and obviously players and coaches to run the team. Giving it more thought that’s clearly not an option.

In reality many Premiership clubs run an Academy solely to raise funds by selling numerous players for between £1 & £5 million. I note that Chelsea and Man City basically dominate the winning of leagues/trophies at youth levels and both have 30 plus players out on loan the majority prior to selling and only the exception gets through to the first team. I thought Chelsea had changed their approach last season but their summer spending demonstrated this was solely due to their ban from transfers and once this ended it was back to normal and once all their signings are fit how many of Abraham’s, Gilmour, Hudson Odoi etc. will be getting regular games?
