#CFCU23 will face Swindon, Oxford and Exeter in the EFL Trophy.

 

As you may know Chelsea U23's are entering the EPL trophy this season.

 

this could be a great chance for the boys to really grow as players as the lower league teams tend to take this cup serious

It's bad news in one way. I had hoped UEFA would rewrite the rules and allow us to defend our UEFA Youth League title. I'm reading the decision to enter this trophy as confirmation that they aren't going to do that because I doubt we'd want to take on the workload of both competitions. Hope I'm wrong about this however.

A step in the right direction but England has got to move in the direction of B teams in lower leagues if they are to compete with other nations in youth integration. 

I would find that so wrong.

The last thing football needs is more power in the control of fewer clubs. Its what the Platinis and money men want, to the expense and revenue to smaller clubs. 'Big' clubs youth policy is generally about farming, loaning out, and making a profit. Their philosophy needs to change.

Will be a great experience for young players.

Also, look at this potential Chelsea team. Potential because those players are too good to play in this cup, but still. Amazing.

Blackman; Aina, Christensen, Zouma, Rahman; Baker, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah; Kenedy, Traoré & Batshuayi. Add to that Van Ginkel, Musonda, Solanke, Pasalić, Aké, Boga, Palmer etc.

I'm not sure it necessarily means more power to the wealthy clubs. Right now, the EPL clubs are single handedly driving up all the prices in the market and that comes from the desperation of English top clubs to sign players because of their inability to produce them. B teams would probably bring prices down (or at least stop the insane yearly increases) and make 'smaller' teams more able to compete in the market for better players.
