    Assuming that this indecipherable waffle is talking about lunch, mushroom omelette for me.

    FFS, could you be any more middle class :D

    What do you mean? I’m not even putting the truffle oil on this one.

    A side of Fois Gras haha. My 'lunch' as you poncy southerners call it is usually pretty grim tbh. This is a straight up treat today.

    If it helps dissuade the posh impression you have of me, my omelette was served with a side of Flaming Hot Monster Munch

    I'm not familiar with this "monster munch". Is it some sort of wild animal you kill when you go shooting in the country with Jeeves?

    One doesn’t accompany Jeeves, one simply enjoys the spoils.

    Should have added it to the omelette before folding in, in fact thats your task for tomorrow, then post pics in here, although im certain that would break community guidelines for offensive content haha.

    Are we just getting a Championship TOTS then? Unless EA can't find a generic EFL badge.

    Or I’m hoping anyway

    I've turned into Martin Jol on Football Manager, signings players who are well past their best hoping to get some last bit of quality out of them.

    Have 7 players who are retiring at the end of the season, most of them big names on big money (for League 2). David Stockdale, Sami Khedira, Schone, Parolo, Cabaye, Payet, Podolski. Yes, I do have all of these names in League 2. Most of them are absolutely shocking now.

    Currently 6th in League 2 with a game in hand, 3 points off the automatics.

    What we thinking TOTS wise? Don't think I'll be buying the entire Championship TOTS within the first hour like the past couple years :D

    Would really like a Benrahma tho

    If it's just Championship I'd assume that means the small leagues are just a Starting XI, so probably something like this;

    If it's full EFL then I posted my Prediction on here a while ago;

    The Benrahma/Watkins link will be very fun.

    My favourite one was during FUT19 when they bought out promo packs with the FUT18 logo and artwork still on them, if that doesn't tell you what they do with their code each year then I don't know what will :D

    Not the most trustworthy source but what's everyone's thoughts about this?

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8242633/League-One-League-Two-clubs-regional-divide-bid-stay-afloat-coronavirus.html

    If you do that you'd have to surely scrap the NL and have NLN/S straight below. Suspect that change couldn't be forced on the NL.

    Absolutely not a fan of that at all
    Bloke is just having a meltdown because he’s spent an unsustainable amount of money, their wage budget recently has been significantly higher than ours off of 10% of the gate
    It’s just so unnecessary for something that is going to create a nonsense league
    Let’s say this season gets finished, and Boro, Wigan and Barnsley go down and Coventry, Oxford and Portsmouth go up (entirely possible scenario)
    You now have a terrible South and a North that includes Boro, Wigan, Barnsley, Sunderland, Bolton, Rotherham, Doncaster, Fleetwood all fighting for presumably one automatic promotion slot and to get to a play off final with the south
    Also the biggest gap in English football right now is the one between league 1 and the championship, if you dilute the prize money and quality of opposition at league 1 you may as well ringfence the championship and higher

    I also found it funny how he talked about '10 famous clubs' potentially going bust. I'm not sure anyone other than him would regard Fleetwood as a famous club. :joy:

    Anyone else seen Palace now claiming to be the oldest club?

    EFL logo on the right of this, so seems like it was just a very uncharacteristic mistake from EA.

    Funny thing is Rodak's in this twice, and those two arguably aren't even his best saves this season. He made an absolutely ridiculous one against Huddersfield in the 3-2 win.

    Can we all appreciate this promotion battle I'm currently in to get out of League 2. I've got AFC Wimbledon next up as well.
