... of over using the young players on their books!
They looked doomed too. :(

Saw the goals against them in 5-0 defeat at tranmare on Saturday, the young lads are just not up to it, 2-3 young lads at most, but this is most of the team....

Would they be that much stronger? Not long to sign players and the ones on strike are hardly world beaters are they?
Nope and whose going to sign for a club that’s not paying its players and is a cert for relegation?
So the results gone stand ?
No, rules state if a side goes out of business during season all their results upto that point are expunged

There has to be another reason behind that, i bet them young lads are not complaining one bit about playing league one footy now
Yeah, I'm sure they do, but it doesn't mean they should play. Most sports have restrictions such as this for the players' own welfare and long-term career development, e.g. under 19 fast bowlers in cricket aren't permitted to bowl more than 7 (?) overs per spell. I dunno what the restrictions are in football for the specifics of this but I do know that players aren't allowed to represent teams more than two years below their age range for this specific reason: there are obviously problems involved with a team of kids playing against senior players who are physically developed. If it was me I'd be fucking delighted to be playing obviously, but this would be two games in four days for them and you can completely understand why medical teams would raise objections to this.

Im not sure i agree but can understand where you are coming from. From what i gather they are mostly 18/19 year olds. Half of tgem will probably fade out the game if they never had this chance, so its great for them to have it on their cv

Controversial I know, but I'm finding it hard to have any sympathy for them. They're simply not fit for purpose. It might only be the third division but, it's a professional league at the end of the day.
I guess it depends what you mean by "them". I mean fuck yeah the absolute scumbags who've been running these clubs need kicking out the game & if possible chucked in jail but it's not the fans' fault that the club has been run as a complete basketcase & it could easily be us or any other team.
