It looks to late for Crewe who are holed below the waterline, though not yet tilted stern up. Pity because I think Crewe try to play football 'the right way' and they are local rivals. Ideally, I would wish PV could play them in League 1 next year. 

However, more disturbing is the bottom of League 2. Each year it seems we lose another famous old club and often Midland / Northern rivals. I hope at least Stockport or Chesterfield can come back this year. Maybe both.

Rather Halifax who don't appear to have chucked money at it.

I could certainly live with Halifax. Also Grimsby, Wrexham, Notts County. It looks like They're too far adrift this year maybe.

If you think "the right way" is to be unable to defend a corner then that is how they are playing.  I`ve seen too much play acting to win free kicks and corners and get people sent off to have much enthusiasm for how they play.

Time to start planning for League 2, hopefully we can start playing the youngsters who will develop over the next few years. Too many average loan players this season.

They reckon it costs £1m to run the academy how will Crewe afford that on gates of 3k in Div2 ?

There are also rumours that some of the better youngsters don't want to sign contracts with Crewe and there is some unrest in the camp.

I've heard that the current crop of 16-18 year olds at Crewe is viewed as the most talented ever. No idea if it's true. They probably say it every 5 years.

Of course, it's all futile, as the cycle will begin again in 2 years of play young players, see them improve, promotion, sell them all, reinvest in the academy, relegation, go again.

It's so Sisyphean it's comical.

At some point is there an attempt to break the cycle and to invest in the first-team squad/giving existing talent the type of contract that will encourage them to stay? Or is the futility of the entire affair offset by some moral high-horsery?

I'm going to be controversial. The wok police will come for me and I risk being cancelled. And I know it's wrong because I am going to chunk a whole population(s) but here goes. I have worked in Grimsby / Cleethorpes and spent some time there. There is a time warp. It has factors of isolation - towns in an otherwise rural NE Lincolnshire environment. They are chilled, do stuff in their own time and own way and - to the point - a bit of fighting with the opposition fans is OK.
