Too many fools have power

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Of Sport -

Well that re-vamp of the English Foot­ball League Tro­phy went well. I doubt the Posh record low at­ten­dance for a com­pet­i­tive game of 279 will be bro­ken when Nor­wich City U23s visit the ABAX on a Tues­day in the hol­i­day sea­son, but I wouldn’t be sur­prised if the gate dipped be­low 1,000. The orig­i­nal idea of in­creas­ing the num­ber of games few want to watch was stupid enough, but to re­veal teams you wanted in the com­pe­ti­tion be­fore they’d ac­cepted the in­vite was an un­mit­i­gated PR dis­as­ter. Too many fools have power in foot­ball.
