Well, you may think premier clubs playing their kids against third division clubs is an advance in the world of football, I don't. It's insulting and counter productive. All part of the rack and stack utopia these big brands are after. And many many people think like me, as has been chronicled nationwide. Obviously much of the muff yoof don't, and nor do you and Graiser. No surprise there.

It isn't crap at all.Perfectly obvious that every 9 year old will go home tonight and say "hey mum, found out tonight that the elitist football industry holds its own future more important than mine and its all about making Gods and followers". Remember doing exactly the same when I was 9 years old, absolutely natural and time honoured reaction.

Phil Brown was in the directors box tonight and left before any goals was scored

The early kick off encouraged many families to HP tonight, can't remember ever seeing so many young kids at HP, no messing with iPads, xboxes, watching television or watching Liverpool on the tele, instead watching a decent but not spectacular game, those kids are the future supporters, so for me sod the football politics with all the theoretical nonsense and let's make sure we get them there again.
I started watching Argyle in 1961, there were no other distractions like I've mentioned above so it was easy to get Argyle under my skin, the kids of today have so many other distractions to keep them from supporting Argyle and if the Checkatrade does nothing else than encourage more youngsters, then that's the bigger picture for me.
For those that want to carry on with the usual sound bites and dodgy pictures, then crack on and I'll carry on and state my opinions as and when I wish to do so, whether they conform to anybody else's I'm not really fussed at all.

I own up to that but I'm not as consistent at it as you.

Look the whole football industry is fecked, complete
pile of crap the whole corporate scene, mega wages, foreign owned with an excess of foreign players, extortionate gate prices,  obscene football rights etc etc.
But tonight I saw a decent game of football, argyle played really well and deserved to win and most if all I saw hundreds of families and kids really enjoying themselves.
So for me also a good night glad I went, and of course yes the concept of this competition is flawed.
But hey ho life goes on.

So lots of kids turned up, what's that tell you?

Was it the cheap prices or the possibility of seeing some future prem players?

Well, we've had kids for a quid for league matches and how did that turn out?

You want future fans to turn out (and stick with you) then you have to entice them with good quality players!

Herald - "It's a game that I wouldn't want to watch week in, week out because the atmosphere is not the same."

PAFC site 'It was a game I would like to watch week in, week out," said Derek. "The people that were here enjoyed it.'

Whatever the merits of the competition Alex Fletcher scoring twice was a real bonus for all concerned. Course the last player to score twice on debut never saw the light of day again !

Aye, their seems to be conflicting comments from Derek, he is either being misreported or inconsistent.
He is reported in the brentherald as saying he could have done without the game, but it helpfully gave his players game time.
As a punter it looked like positive game time, argyle were well up for it Ainsworth in particular and it could only have boosted Fletchers confidence.
Didn't think the Chelsea team had any standouts apart from Ampadu and their goalie.
