Re: B Teams . Good idea or not ?

Sorry to repeat myself but as this one continues…. If an average PL outfit like us have a B team in the Championship (or Div 1/2), how many other B teams do you think might be in the Championship, and across the 3 divisions of the EFL? So that is presumably how many existing EFL clubs get pushed int...

B teams in the EFL

Well we aren’t going to see eye to eye on this one. The money in football has already shifted significantly to the top tier to the detriment of the rest, too much in my opinion. Lower league teams rely on loans because they can’t afford to pay academy players the huge money the big clubs do. But not...

Re: FCSB vs West Ham Official Match Thread

Fair enough, we will have to differ on this one. If there are 20 PL B teams scattered across the EFL pyramid then 20 other teams are pushed further down and out of the EFL. And Some Championship clubs are big enough to run a decent B team. So you have B teams drawing smaller crowds in an area that a...

Re: FCSB vs West Ham Official Match Thread

They sort of make it work in Spain. Castilla (who we played in the ECWC behind closed doors in 1980) are Real Madrid’s B team. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Madrid_Castilla However I’m not in favour of it here. The EFL Championship is the fifth biggest league in Europe in terms of attendances...

Re: Wiggy

Be fair. I think Conte is right. He said last night “A top team would have got that decision…..”. Maybe but to the letter of the law, that was offside as Kane was ahead of the ball when it was played and ahead of the player. Yes it was the correct decision according to the current laws, … however t...

Re: West Ham vs Silkenborg Official Match Thread

Just got home. I think it was the most tedious win I ever seen …. And I’ve seen a lot over the last 55 years. I couldn’t believe how many passes they were prepared to play in their own area, we should have intercepted a few more. The game was played between half way and their penalty area, without u...

Whipps Cross hospital.
I am within the distance for Upron Park and OS. I must be a super fan.
Then you were definitely born within 4.6 miles of the ground of the team you support (as the crow flies in a north westerly direction from Whipps Cross Hospital).
