money making scam that benefits skysports and not the paying fans at the turnstiles. Rugby League do this - Big Weekend or whatever they call it. Fans have to travel to a neutral venue and they have 2 or 3 games one after the other on the same pitch. Confusion at the turnstiles and some fans paying to watch a team they don't support. Rugby League is still a family orientated sport and there is very rarely any trouble at the games, and I'm not saying that all football fans are mindless hooligans, but as a sport that has a much bigger following - this kind of thing would end up in all kinds of trouble if they did this. As I say - the only ones who will get anything out of this would be the moneymakers and fat cat corporate boys who have ruined the game enough. All well and good for the big clubs who have fans by the million all over the world but the likes of Stoke City, Brighton, and other less popular clubs will not get many fans travelling to a foreign country to see their team play a club in the same league when they can watch it on a tv. We're edging ever closer a to European Super League with the elite big 5 or 6 clubs breaking away from the English top flight. And you can guarantee the rest of the English Leagues will not get the same coverage. The rich ones get richer and the poorer one get even poorer.

still a scam if its having to go a neutral venue in the UK. Why go to say for example to Southampton or Swansea to watch a game between Everton and Manchester City. If the idea is that one team has home advantage then that isn't fair on away fans having to fork out for an extra away fixture. Its an extra game that isn't necessary. Its the same woth these play offs at the end of the regular season. It should be the top 3 promoted - not the top 2 and then the 3rd to 6th play off for the last promotional place. If you finish 3rd you have earned the right to go up over the course of a season not be forced to play another 3 games to go up. Its making money for the likes of Murdoch and his cronies

No not neutral location in UK mate, it's foreign based games.

Ie China, Russia - basically who'll pay the most to host.

it's a crap idea from the crappy money mad men at the top.

They won't be happy until there is a Prem 2 either, I'm surprised it's not happened already. Then the rest of football really will see teams going bust.

At least if there was a prem 2 we would be in it.

Football will get ruined by these money mad idiots.

What do you mean "will". The game I grew up with disappeared long ago. It is now a business run by money men trying to squeeze every ounce of meat from the bone. The premier league don't give a flying fcuk about any team not in the elite. If Tony Xia poored billions into AVFC then we might get a seat at the table - but it would be about how to make more money, not for the benefit of football.

JF kindly said because we're in the EFL.

I'll add because this is the forum news goes into and the headline wasn't confusing, maybe you should make decisions for yourself?
