    really want to support Carol and Kevin in every way possible, but very hard in this competition, would it make a difference if we just attend the games not against the accademy teams

    I still can't get my head around the fact 4000 Vale fans degraded themselves by attending that Stoke U12 fixture. Imagine the message it would've sent out to everyone if we had sold ZERO tickets and they turned up with 4000. That would've really started the debate and highlighted the attitude of lower league fans towards this B Team Trojan Horse.

    Instead, it'll go down in history as our highest attendance of the season. Nice one, guys.
    Our highest attendance a couple of seasons ago came in an England v Italy match - girly ball.

    It was great to see so many people attend the Lionesses match at VP.

    My original point was about Port Vale, so null and void owd fruit.

    I'm sure the world class athletes who appeared will be thrilled to receive your approval.

    Not here to provoke an argument for the inclusion of B Teams. Literally no one likes them. However...

    They aren't going to go anyway. Lower league fans not attending Checkatrade games is NOWHERE NEAR as important to the EFL as the Prem clubs who demanded B Teams in the first place. They will always satisfy the Prem clubs over us.

    As I've mentioned, Andy Holt of Accrington says that this is a vitally important revenue stream for lower clubs, and a good run in the competition (backed by good attendances) can boost a club's budget significantly, which seems to be a big gripe on here at the present.

    Only presenting the counter point. I back anyone taking a moral standpoint against the competition, but if a good run it this meant a bigger budget in 2020/21 then I can put my moral issues aside. Added to that, its unlikelt to make a difference whether me and you go or not.
