It seems that the crafty bigwigs at the FA have used the distraction of a major European tournament to quietly slip in a few changes to another football competition. It’s the only reason I can think of that a bigger stink hasn’t been made of this.
Now I’m sure we’ll all have a laugh when Bolton are competing in this fine contest this coming year and there will no doubt be some wet behind the ears type Latics fan who will be quick to sneer that these changes don’t affect us. They effect the whole of football and the continual monopolisation of the Greed League at the expense of grass roots upwards.

Instead, it would seem that the footballing superpowers have simply adapted a different approach and decided that they’d like a piece of the Football League Trophy instead.
OK so the League 3 idea has been parked but don’t ever think it has gone away.
“ Now, personally I don’t even have to go past the first sentence to smell bulls**t. Do they mean the Premier League, as they hadn’t even been mentioned at that point?
“As part of their ongoing commitment to creating more and better home grown players…” Who exactly is THEIR? Where is the benefit to the lower league clubs of inviting 16 Premier League academy teams into the competition?
Furthermore, what possible benefit do the skint clubs in the bottom two divisions get from this, seeing as it is a competition which already represents the opportunity to allow a few fringe players get a run out? So it doesn’t take a genius to see who gets the real benefits of this “ongoing commitment” and it certainly isn’t football league clubs Add another 16 teams into the competition full of precocious youngsters, the best talent in the land and it will only lessen the chance those 48 clubs of getting a lucrative trip to Wembley.
