Do the fans get a vote?

I suppose the clubs will realise that the fans aren't interested by looking at the attendances.
I can't see the need for it - apart from the possibility of a trip to Wembley.
And isn't there some confusion between the EFL Cup and this the EFL Trophy?
Bin it.

Go back to the way it was, for sure. No-one has any desire to watch anyone get stuffed by Norwich reserves.

I saw a proposal that I thought sounded good ...
divide the country into 8 regional zones, and each zone plays its cup, so plenty of local derbies.
Then the eight regional winners become the quarter-finalists of the National league cup ...

That sounds too clever for the powers that be to adopt, instead of the under 23 unwanted so they should make up a viable number from the national league and national league south and north.

Yeah. I thought that sounded too interesting and indeed viable for the F.A. to really take an interest!!

If it is adopted it will be interested to see how the numpties who are in charge would draw up the eight groups. Previous examples of their skills have shown Northampton in a northern section whilst Peterborough were in a southern section. There are various examples in non league where teams like Gloucester are in the northern section, whilst Kings Lynn were in the south.

That sounds like a reason why it won't happen.
