see the link below

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39425301

this quote from Shaun Harvey made me chuckle

We didn't actually fine clubs for playing younger players. We fined them for not playing enough senior ones."

love the fact this was meant to get young players experience of good quality football yet clubs got fined due to the lack of senior players Shocked

A question for Mr Harvey... which football club is most likely to have development teams comprised of local homegrown talent... Chelsea or Luton..?

Its been here since the mid-eighties, when the Full Members of the Football League had their own cup too, so there's no reason to expect it to go anywhere.

Speaking of Football League ridiculousness, did you read Alains GH e-mail this week?

He went to a fans forum, but they weren't allowed to ask any awkward questions, like why they can't make midweek matches local matches. He said it was more a like sales pitch for Sky than an open forum.

Is also say that 15 Premier teams and Newcastle were the 16 Academy teams - I thought Brighton, Wolves and Reading were in it as well

The article suggests that removing the competition from the fixture calendar is an option. How likely would that be? I'd like to see it go, but will clubs vote to forgo a revenue stream, however small?

but it isn't a revenue stream,. Stadia costs £xxx to have open and I wouldn't mind betting the gates for a lot of the clubs (including us), don't cover it

Difficult one really. The tournament is a bit of a joke, however as Coventry found the winning team can make some decent cash.

It does give the manager scope to try formations in a competitive environment.

If he wants the games.........
