MK Dons v Chelsea

I am aware that many of you will know Ian as IanFromOundle From dot net, a lot of times he is a wind up mention but with this tweet he was spot on the money. Chelsea should be either fined like Posh were last season for playing a weakened side, but for going against the spirit of the competition, they should be kicked out of the competition and either The Fakes reinstated or the side that is drawn against them given a bye.

Well the franchise deserve it. I would consider it an ironic twist of fate.
Anyway I hope we get Chelsea under 23s, you never know, it might put an extra 100 on the gate when they play Fabregas.

Not a massive fan of letting bigger clubs join but I thought they had to use under 21s! How can they allow 6 overs then?

Even Chelsea had Batshuayi playing.

Anyone know what the rules actually are?

I know you've probably got me on ignore but it did comment on that here

Utterly ridiculous that they haven't been kicked out

Apologies I have just seen your post, not sure how I missed it earlier. Totally agree makes the competition even more of a joke.

I don't have you on ignore but I can't find that post. The link says "The requested topic does not exist."

I thought that the invited clubs had to field at least six under 21s.
Being happy never goes out of style
