I didn't say it was.

My point is there'll be quite a few professional coaches who support the idea, especially higher up the divisions. In my experience they look at football very differently from supporters and won't have the same moral objections.

Directors will be more inclined to think of the bottom line than morality as well.

Really can't see, in my simple mind, how the reserves etc doesn't work. Play with and against old pro's, along with similar youngsters, when they're ready, into the 1st team. The youngsters had a go in the Lge Cup and didn't set the world alight, seems that it's just the OF who don't understand.Hope the idea is dead in the water now.

Supporters have morals and directors don’t - what nonsense!

Because there are no old pros and 1st team players willing to play reserve football any more.  That’s what happens when you have all those subs they then see themselves as first team players - they are certainly paid as such.  In the past when there was one or two subs reserve games were played on the same day as the 1st team clash

Are you just being contrary for the sake of it? It's an opinion I'm expressing an opinion based on my experience of the coaches and directors I know. I didn't say all. 

Eta. There's a director on here who is morally opposed, good for him.

This is true in many cases 😏

And there are patently many supporters who back the idea

Do you really think there are many? I think there might be a silent majority who don't care, but I'd say the most active group of supporters are against it.

As @parsforlife alluded, Rangers and Celtic supporters would support anthrax being put in the water supply of their clubs proposed it.

It isn’t difficult to see many supporters who are in favour -on here you pretty much have a self selecting group so it is maybe a bit groupthink.  And Rangers and Celtic certainly have large fanbases many who clearly support the idea even if they only have a vague grasp of the many issues involved.  The Old Firm also do have a fair number of reasonable fans

Celtic just signed Bosun Lawal from Watford to play for their colts team this season.

He is Irish. I thought the (supposed) point of this was to help develop players for the Scotland national team?

Celtic are developing players for their national team...
