    A ban on non-EU players makes me shudder. Won't be long until they decide for the 'benefit of the nations football' that we're allowed to only field 3 EU players in a similar manner to chinese football (which I might remind you is garbage).

    EDIT: Might be worth them introducing a rule so only home grown players can take penalties, might solve more than a ban on players.

    "The review also calls for a ban on non-European Union players outside of the top flight".
    Yeah, that's going to work out brilliantly when teams get relegated :facepalm: This won't happen.

    Greg Dyke seriously living up to his surname here. I'd rather watch a competitive football league each weekend than an England team once every half a year.

    Two other stupid points the FA wish to introduce...

    - "It also wants to develop "strategic loan partnerships" between clubs."

    Oh, so when Watford get loanees from one club, it's wrong, but it'll be fine so long as they're English players from English clubs, most of which are too arrogant and crap to make it to the top anyway.

    - "The review also calls for a ban on non-European Union players outside of the top flight"

    It's stupid, but it'll mean the Algerian Belkalem can't play for Watford any more, so hey ho, get it signed and in.
    Jesus that is ridiculous. Let's just create even more of a gap between top tier and the rest...

    Millwalls new kit is just...urgh.



    And the incredibly cringey quote on the back.



    Worries me what Macron have planned for Leeds' new kit.
    That is HORRIFIC

    mind you, captures the spirit of the club quite nicely.

    Something tells me the next English superstar won't become the footballer he is because he played at Dagenham and Redbridge on a cold Tuesday night.

    Perfect game plan from McClaren, it must be said. Soak up the pressure (knowing full well they're not great offensively) and hit them on the break.

    Brighton were really, really poor going forward though. Ulloa was so isolated and they never had more than a single man in our box.

    That's because Italy are awesome :P

    Seriously B teams are the worst idea in the world, our entire squad virtually is made up of players that would otherwise be in B teams for various sides

    One shot on target, two goals. That's efficiency at it's finest.

    Altrincham FC have been promoted to the Football Conference national division after a 2-1 win over Guiseley at Moss Lane. 1-1 in 90 minutes then they scored in the 120th minute, right on the end of extra time. Pitch invasion too apparently!

    I was gonna go but the transport links are running poorly today and there was meant to be massive queues to get in the ground anyway. They got 4,500 fans in, which is good considering it was £15 a ticket for 6th tier football. Don't really support them anyway but I like the club, buzzing for their fans that they got that big promotion. Nice to have another local team climbing the league too.
