Bench numbers back up again

The Football League has agreed that seven substitutes will be allowed on the bench again next season, thus reversing a false economy measure: Substitutes

I never liked the change as I always thought that getting on the bench, even if there was little chance of playing or at best a cameo, was an important part of the development of Academy players. It was a 'benchmark' to be reached, particularly in the absence of a proper reserve side (a decision I hope will be changed one day).

Incidentally it is amusing on the comments on the link above to see Burnley fans already slagging each other off and predicting relegation.
