I thought I would conduct a straw poll to discover everybody's intentions.
There are only about two lines of comments from Palios.I’m not, due to usual difficulty with getting to mid-week games, but even if I could make it doubt would bother. Apart from the U18s, the rules about who selection for these games are such a mish-mash, the whole thing lacks credibility.
Though I note Mark Palios is extolling the merits of this tournament on the o/s.
The League One and Two clubs have effectively been bribed into accepting the under-21 teams by the EPL: either accept reserve teams or lose your 'solidarity' payments from the Premier League, which amount to 500,000 to 1 million pounds per annum. That was the option the lower division clubs were given two years ago.He didn’t have to say anything at all. The reality is that there are financial sweetners for progressing in this competition, which we appear to need.
