Clubs Ask Fans To Vote On FL Trophy Changes Can't Post or Reply Privately

Fans have been invited to vote for one of three options:

1) A revised format including 16 invited teams;

2) A return to the previous 48-team competition, exclusive to League One and Two;

3) Remove the competition from the fixture calendar.

I'd say that 2 is the best option, or to have 12 regional groups of four teams (48 overall) with the top teams progressing plus the best four runners-up (16 going through).

These 16 teams would then be drawn north/south and whittled down until the northern and southern finals - the winners of these games then face off at Wembley for the FL Trophy.

The FL Trophy for this season was a joke of a competition imo. Either take it back to a decent format with just League 1 or League 2 sides or else get rid of it.

Option 2 for me , if not carried I want another vote because the others didn't realise what they were voting for.



0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-1.(1).

Benelux.
B= 0-0-0-(0-0-0)-(0-0-0-0).
L = 0-1.
N = 0-0-0.
Iberia.
P = 0 - 1.
S = 0 - 0.
Germany.
0-0-2.



Season 2016/17.
Below obviously only first team competitive games from July 1 , 2016.
@ 23 /04 /17 ---- 183 / 144 / 39.

Option 2

Or if they have to "invite" teams, get them from the National League and have a straight knock-out



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Option 2 with maybe the teams receiving the 1st round byes based on final league position from previous season.

Option 3, total waste of time competition that no one cares about until a club gets to the final and suddenly acquires an extra 35,000 loyal 'fans' for the day that are then never seen again.

What "fans" have been asked though? I take it that it's proper fans of the clubs involved and not anyone just hitting some key on a phone.

The EFL statement http://www.efl.com/...-trophy-3670256.aspx appears to make no mention of asking fans - I would like to know where this came from.

The options were show on the Blackpool FC website, so I'm assuming that they are also on (or are going to be put on) other League 1 & 2 websites.

It might just be a club thing rather than an EFL thing. I know that a lot of Blackpool fans are favouring Option 2.
