Re: Why?

Not quite on topic,but relevant..I don't think this very sudden escalation of prices is bound to continue. It's a very fragile type of "bubble" There seem to be alternative choices, to the highly priced players, who's talent is only marginally less. It might only take a couple of clubs to...

Re: B Teams --- Yes or No

Two points to make there. As you bring it up I'd guess the attendances were poor. However I'd also guess they were better than our home crowds in the U23 league. And the Checkatrade trophy games were usually played against understrength teams anyway weren't they ? A bit like a lower league Mickey M...

Re: B Teams --- Yes or No

It’s difficult to vote for this one as I can see both sides. In principle I think a b team would work but as stated in this thread already it shouldn’t be at the cost of other clubs places within all the football tiers. Maybe have the results stand but at the end of the season b teams cannot get pr...

Re: B Teams --- Yes or No

I think it's time,then we wouldn't have to sell the likes of Burke,Oxford rumoured to be for sale,as soon as a youngster gets to around 20-22 if they haven't broke through they want out,to play regularly.As for the crewe's and Orient's it would be a big draw and would generate more cash for the low...

Re: B Teams --- Yes or No

Yes so long as there is no promotion involved. In Spain & Germany there is promotion and relegation up to a point. The point being that the B team obviously can't win promotion into the league where the A team is playing. Barcelona B won La Liga Div 2 several years back apparently and obviously...

Re: obiang or Noble

I've never been Noble's greatest fan but neither have I been his greatest critic. A few years ago, when he was in his peak years the fact there was never any serious interest from any major clubs says a great deal. Nonetheless there are many other midfield players who have commanded big fees and ha...

Re: obiang or Noble

Shorty you need to be consistent in your arguing. You give no credence to the Club Managers ability in their choosing the right guy to play for their club, and then "wonder" why an England manager chooses one over another. By the way are you Porterman's representative? He forewarned us......

B Teams --- Yes or No

Logical follow on from the topic about the youngsters imo. I think clubs should be allowed to field B teams to play in competitive leagues. Say, as an example, a starting point could be National League Southern (Div 6) for a club like us. I think it would enable clubs to give their likely youngsters...

Re: Danny Wellbeck

Welbeck 1 in 3 for England Carroll 1 in 3.5 for West Ham Hugill 0 in no matter how many games he will play Would you rather keep the latter 2 or get rid of both and take on Wellbeck (in the absence of any better option of course) Your comment in brackets sums it up imo. I feel sure there are better...
