Why would we do that? I don’t think that’s allowed is it? As It’s unfair on other teams who might be relying on results. Do we have Seven or eight regular starters I’m not sure we have?! Don’t you think every club would play their youth teams/young pros if this was allowed, when nothing was on the game.Going OT but speaking of being mathematically safe, perhaps the greatest thing GC could do would be to field an entire matchday squad of Academy graduates. I think, given we regularly start with seven or eight, we wouldn’t be on the end of a proper tonking, and it might well be the first and only time a team in the top four divisions - if not the entire professional footballing world - fielded such a side.
Also, if we did manage to avoid a right pasting, I suspect it might be something that not only the sporting media but mainstream media too would be making a massive thing over.
