It wasn't me that shifted the basis of the argument from whether the 1st team players should count as "available" to whether it matters they fielded a weakened side. Liverpool broke the rules, disrespected the spirit of the competition and did lower league opponents out of a much needed additional revenue boost they'd ordinarily expect to get from playing the 1st team at Anfield. I agree the cause of the fuck-up was the PL and FA not scheduling the winter break and replays properly but Liverpool have behaved poorly here.

I've finished the tedious job I was avoiding by having a discussion where I have no dog in the fight, so time to move on!

Rotherham fans on the way to their game at Accrington today stopped in at Bury to put some trade the way of local pubs/businesses that have lost out on Saturday trade since Dale imploded Bury FC. Class!

Yep.  The money ploughed into Salford could have saved an historic club.  Shame the Nevilles aren't from Bury, they could have invested in them instead.

Yeah, if only their dad could have been a director of Bury.

Ah but that wouldn't have got the same level of coverage and fed their egos as much as the 'fairytale'.

Given the substantial level of coverage Bury's demise got, I think it would probably have generated more coverage if anything. Although by that time they'd already made their investment in Salford some years previously.
