Too many fools have power
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.
