EFL: PFA will consider legal action over squad size limit proposals

The Professional Footballers' Association has said it will have to consider legal action if the English Football League does not scrap its proposed limits on squad sizes.

Under the proposals, teams in the Championship will be able to name a 25-man squad while those in Leagues One and Two will be restricted to 20.
The PFA wants teams at all three levels to be allowed to name 25-man squads.

The union said that suggestion has been rejected by the EFL.

I don't understand why they would limit the lower leagues to 20 but allow championship to have 25. Some clubs may not even get 25 but to physically limit them is a joke.

I remember a soccer match in the Middlesex league many years ago, when one team beat another team 10-0. The league published their scores in the local papers, where the score was recorded as 1-0. The winning club’s secretary called the League’s secretary to advise the score had been published wrongly, only to be advised that if the score had been published as 10-0, people might regard the league as a bit of a joke league. So that’s what happens when jobsworth people like some of the EFL officials come up with silly ideas. Too many cooks spoil the broth.
