Midnight Caller is where we grab people to talk about issues across general football which have caught our eye. It can be anything, from the rise of China to the threat of B-Teams in English football. It is simply finding someone who knows their stuff to talk with us about their knowledge and leave us all that little bit smarter about the game we obsess over.
The B-Team story is one that won’t go away. The latest is that B-Teams will be allowed to compete in the, soon to be rebranded, Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. Iain Macintosh has been a long time critic of the idea of B-Teams playing against established lower league opposition. We talk about how this development might damage the competition, who on earth would go to Chelsea B vs Liverpool B at Wembley, and how this is likely to be the thin end of the wedge.
