I can't see the Championship having any more than four relegation places so that means there would be 48 teams chasing 3 or 4 promotion places including those via play-offs.
That is going to mean automatic promotion for the regional champions only.
The play-offs will then either be one promoted from each region if the EFL are relegating four Championship clubs or, if it is only three coming down then play-offs would be one winner from a competition involving clubs from both North and South.
Yep, perfect. Exactly what the 'big' clubs want. Get rid of the 'likes of Argyle' and let's concentrate on the unstoppable avalanche of ££££ that has made the game so much 'better.' The sooner clubs like ours are annexed into our little regional leagues the better...for the elite.
Still, when we're playing Torpoint and Newton Abbot in the South West Super Duper Mega Premier Division, I hope everyone will be happy.
Regionalising of the lower leagues is something the "big" clubs as you call them will have no input, in fact I doubt the likes of Liverpool, United and City would even notice.
Exactly. The less we interfere in their business, the better, as long as we know our place and remain satisfied with the crumbs we receive from their table. Seen, but not heard right now. Neither seen nor heard would be the ideal result for most of the big boys.
