I can't get my head around this - Wealdstone have arranged a friendly for THIS Saturday! Bracknell Town away, for anybody in need of a football fix. Play-offs finish in May and friendlies in June - This is utter insanity, I watched top flight non league back in my youth - one public pre-season game - an annual punch up with Shrewsbury Town down the road for the Senior Cup.
I actually believe it's to the detriment and counter-productive to have such a long drawn out implementation phase. I utterly dispair at the over saturation of all the competitions. The authorities have destroyed cup competitions, given preferences to the top earners and it filters down to our level. I think its reflective of our society with a constant need for a instant gratification. Shame no-one can learn to defend properly. All the pontificating surrounding every decision - the introduction of VAR is the icing on the cake. Don't even get me started on Test Cricket. Footballers can't defend and batsmen can't stay at a crease for longer than an hour.
It's diluting the standards - I want old fashioned stuff - today is just rubbish by comparison.
