Hardly a new problem but...

So clubs aren't voting on Checkatrade Trophy at AGM like last time. The vote has already been conducted. Clubs have filed responses.

This is really bad news, and as a campaign we should have realised. Nothing to be done now but wait for news.

And the first piece of news - Notts County voted  IN FAVOUR of B Teams.

The club ran a fans' survey which showed fans were totally against the B team format. The chairman has justified it on financial grounds. I dare say Power will have voted in a similar fashion.

Ineffective EFL in excluding disastrous owners (makes Power look good, very good)

Disappointing that Squires who's a Town fan couldn't have drawn (pun intended) more attention to our plight.

The PL response to Andy Holt is pathetic

Well said Mr. Holt for standing up to the bully boys. Pity a few more don't have the balls to do so. Although I noticed that Darragh MacAnthony (Peterborough owner) backed him up.

I am actually quite surprised we (used to) receive as much as 650k from the prem. thought it was a lot less.

If collectively the whole football league demanded more with direct action something could be achieved. We don't have a right to premier league money, they receive it for their product, however in order to preserve a competitive pyramid something has to change otherwise not only will the chance of a league 1 club achieve promotion be slim but will become almost non existent (even championship clubs bar a select few)

What makes you think anyone in the premier league gives a fuck?

The PL is pathetic on this subject but so is the FA and the EFL. The FA don't really care as their desire to improve, and milk financially, a successful England team means they are complicit in allowing the top clubs to scoop all the best young talent and to make it cost prohibitive for the lower leagues to attempt to develop talent in the same manner. The EFL doesn't have the power to do anything about and are more than willing to bend over and take it, as seen in this years EFL cup.

I'm sure Power will have voted against on moral grounds and not been swayed by a few bob more.

I'm not. I think it's admirable they've kept him on. I don't believe he's a bad manager, but Sunderland are a mess of a club and have been on borrowed time for every second they've spent in the PL since Peter monkey head left.
