East Midlands Side anyone? Er... no

A resounding thumbs down from you all with regard to the formation of an East Midlands side for 20/20.

Thankfully the idea has been knocked on the head now, but the response of those voting on this blog suggest it would be as popular a concept as Corky's return to Derby.

94% voted against the concept which in anyone's book is a pretty resounding vote. The administrators and advocates for change cannot overlook decades of local rivalry. There was a telling piece in the media where a Lancashire fan reckoned that to have a "Manchester" team would alienate all fans of the county from outwith the city.

The new competition may have its merits and I hope that we give a better account of ourselves in what should be different leagues to the ones we've had in recent years.
