There’s a PL/EFL meeting tomorrow where, in exchange for a few more crumbs from their table, the PL will demand an end to FA Cup replays, clubs being able to withdraw from the league cup or field U-21 sides if they are in European competition
It seems the PL are trying to inflict a slow death on football as many of us know and love it

They want it all, and we should be grateful for the crumbs off their table.

Greedy PL teams just want it all. Crash

The replay money and chance of TV money will be lost for lower league teams who would have earned the right to a replay.

Not sure if this should be in the ‘wrong’ or ‘right’ thread.

With the energy crisis affecting every business, weekend FA Cup and league games could kick off at lunchtime to avoid having to use floodlights.

Shades of the mid 70's with the "three day week".
Nice.

Before my time as a fan, but midweek games were played in the afternoon with pretty poor attendances.
Relegation season for us I think?

Couldn't they just ask everyone to hold their mobile phones up?

Solar powered floodlights?

We should utilise the wind tunnel too.

Memories of playing Pompey in 1974 FA Cup replay at 2pm midweek in January to save on floodlights when there were power cuts.

This should provide an interesting discussion. Personally I'm not sure it's merely a football issue but more a societal issue. There are obviously a large number of factors affecting people at the moment, 'post-lockdown blues', financial struggles and a roadmap of woe really that doesn't look like getting better anytime soon.
