when we had the reserve team last I think it wasn’t used properly,
Back in the dim and distant past of reserve teams we didn’t have 18 man match day squads.
We didn’t play every Tuesday and Saturday, and we certainly didn’t have Mickey Mouse trophy competitions where the first games were in a mini league and the big clubs’ U21s were included.
As Bucks says unless you’re a big club with billionaire owners it is very difficult to run a successful system within your budget.
Which is probably why we have seen the less able products of PL academies finding their way out on loan to clubs like Scunthorpe United.
Another example of where the playing field is anything but level.
