Actually with the amount of Chelsea fans that now support us,a vote to become a chelsea B team would probably get voted through 😡

Naz I walked past KM a few days ago and the stories going around about all the AFC Wimbledon signage being taken down are much exaggerated.

Meadow - unfortunately not. It was streamed on Twitch and I didn't record it (should have done!). Hoping to do another quiz in a couple of weeks.

Has Kingsmeadow now been totally Chelskied with all traces of the Dons deep cleaned out? If so, presumably our guys and gals that are working are doing it from home. And do we know how many of our players and staff have been furloughed, made redundant or had their contracts ended?

Morning all
Hang on - I take that back, apparently there IS a PMQ session today..... my bad (as they say), I’ve been misinformed 🤦🏻‍♂️

don’t believe anything you hear or read, anywhere, ever lol
A4e exactly, you'd think there'd been some kind of major emergency and major medical intervention that occupied his time

Bearing in mind there will probably be a cap on B teams playing above league 1 I'd say the leagues will be nonsense as a competition. Also it will be used as a dev/shop window experience for EPL and Championship B teams - so they don't really care about winning them, that would imply caring about those leagues or the players - they'll just be looking for who sinks/swims from it.

Nick if you look at league 1 I'd suspect it would be 50% "real" clubs (Sunderland, Ipswich, Portsmouth types) and 50% B teams. Which leads to the best players at clubs like ours being pushed into other sides, so even a league of EPL B teams would be the same standard, just without clubs like us in them.

Good to see that parliament is suspended for 2 weeks as of today so that Bodger gets to avoid scrutiny at PMQs again - so he’s only done 2 of them since election in..... December 🤦🏻‍♂️

RK - Nine weeks for us. Son-in-law sent us a really good skit on the press conferences last night - the sort of thing that would normally have me crying with silent laughter. Just sat through it stony faced.

Jape Of The Century
Lurker - you may be right, though i think that part of the thing with b sides is that if they are in a league only for reserves nobody cares about the results so the competition is no use for developing players, hence they want to include the b sides in real leagues, though of course as soon as you get a critical mass of b/ feeder sides relative to real team the competition again becomes "fake", so it's pretty much impossible to achieve what the EPL really want (ie a competition which is both real and intense and at the same time wholly under their control)

Nick I doubt they'd be that fair about it (buying us and making us a feeder), they'll literally want their reserves to play in the divisions and they won't like the idea of them dropping to non league to do it, so it will mean a change that demotes the likes of us - the ones who earned our place on merit.

Hence why this feeder/B team stuff needs to be fought at all times
Crust! Don't tell womble.....

I wouldn't be surprised if the EPL's real agenda was to cut off relegation altogether (possibly taking the big championship clubs into a "EPL 2"). Of course if you then make the EPL a closed shop then a lot of the sporting objections to feeder sides / B teams etc go away, as you will never get Brighton playing Brighton B (formerly known as AFC Wimbledon...), as they are in different competitions. The only small downside would be the total destruction of the game in this country but most armchair EPL fans wouldn't care anyway.

Yeah, my hunch is that the instincts of the EPL will be to make any 'financial solidarity' they display towards the EFL conditional in one way or another.

That article is a bit clickbaity. It’s more about Prem & EFL clubs forging partnerships than anything else. Plenty of EFL clubs already have ties on loanees and/or allowed Prem clubs to use their facilities for reserves/women’s games etc
20th May 2020 08:50:22 
[86.lo.gg.ed] 
I can think of one in particular...
It wouldn't surprise me if the PL sides try to use the crisis to push the B-team/ feeder side model onto the EFL - if so then in effect it's all over for us, that's the one thing that would make me lose interest in the club, no point if we just become Brighton reserves (or whatever)

Mostly full of freight a4e. Most of the few passengers would be rabid(?) Brits heading home, quite probably without the virus.

Two months now in lockdown (some of us couldn't afford to wait for the Govt's official start of 23rd March) and it's taking its strain. Nice weather helps but .....

Morning All. Latest indications are that Premier Lge will return Friday 26th June. The Guardian has an article by by David Hytner suggesting the solution to lower league's financial problems is closer ties with top clubs including possibly B teams

Wondered when that would re-surface 😐
