“Wibble wobble wibble young English talent wobble wibble”
As you may well be aware, the FA Commission presented their plan to save English football yesterday with one of their ideas being the inclusion of a new tier within the Football League, between League Two and the Conference, to accommodate Premier League B teams.
This being the FA Commission panel that features Greg Dyke; the man responsible for bringing Roland Rat to our television screens; Danny Mills, who recently failed to keep a Cornish pasty from going belly up, and Rio Ferdinand: a man who routinely films himself singing in his car – but that’s all by-the-by, we suppose.
Anyway, this proposal went down like a turd in the bath with both the clubs and fans of lower league sides (as well as conscientious onlookers such as Pies), attracting widespread criticism for being utterly self-serving, short-sighted and, of course, resolutely Premier League-centric.
Indeed, Accrington Stanley issued the following counter-proposal to the FA upon hearing the news…
Fighting stupid with stupid.
The club then Tweeted again just to assure their fans that they were joking, presumably after realising their suggestion was no more ludicrous than the FA’s original idea.
