We're in the first round draw and in our section are AFCW, Orient, Gills, Posh, Cambridge, Satanage and Southend. (AFCW or Cambridge at home please)

There will also be use of the Free Kick vanishing spray as an experiment. (Good Idea)

I don't really get it. The free kick spray was used in the World Cup and I haven't come across anyone who didn't consider it a great success.

So why do the FL need to have a trial? Like everything in British football, so backward.

Agreed. It's like they are thinking. It worked in that tiny little tournament in the summer called the World Cup. But before we unleash it on the big boys football I think we ought to test it out on some minor competition.

It was used in the World Cup. It worked. Bring it on.

I've just read the quotes from the FL. Apparently they need to understand its effect on the flow of the game.

Who makes that crap up

I think the refs should also have pepper spray so when the likes of Rooney and co get all up in there face they get one warning then sprayed. This would also bring the sponge and bucket back into the game as they play with 10 men trying to get the mouthy player his vision back.

Next week I discuss tasers for diving

So the Premier League will also have it next season.

Let's see if the FL wake up.

Thank goodness someone has finally come up with a reasoned and logical argument, I'm with you all the way far2jammy, what about forced transfers to Gaza FC 2nd XI as well

What a ridiculous suggestion.

If the referees cannot reach into their pocket for a yellow card, what makes you think they can reach into their pocket for a pepper spray.
