I've always thought Blackpool and Preston cannot play at home on the same day.

We wouldn't want the Preston fans getting flasked in the face

Given the real size of crowds at Bpl I can’t see the problem!!! By the time the Bpl crowd got to Preston after the match the Preston crowd would have well disappeared.

There were times when a number of people would watch whoever was at home on a Saturday. As well as police numbers and in the case of both teams from the same town, there could be traffic issues to consider. These considerations could make a club change the date. League fixtures were always arranged with this in mind.
It was different in the past, I can remember a time when both Liverpool clubs would play at home in the Cup on the same Saturday 3pm KO. I remember Liverpool being home to Leeds and Everton hosting Burnley. Stanley Park was a lively place at 5pm

It’s to the tune of September, I think it’s something like,

Oohhhh we’ve got Jimmy Ryan

Ohhhhh he’s a class midfielder

Ohhhhh he never gives the ball away

1 2 3 4

Repeat.

Even though he is probably a scabby cunt, I do admire his enthusiasm.

It's a shame the first thing you think about is the fact he attends home games. In normal circumstances you would go every credit. He is probably too young to understand in all fairness.

We'll see come next season, oh angry one.

Don't forget, the FA and EFL can fix the Checkatrade Trophy in order to ensure that Under 23 sides are drawn away from home in order to not conflict with first team home games.

I personally don't mind this proposed new rule - saves on police and stewarding costs.

He must have a adult in his life to guide him.

Can't let the Oyston's ruin everything. Least someone covers the games I subbed him awhile ago anyway.
