    I see the League two final is on later.

    My question is this - why are they still being held at Wembley?

    If there’s no fans then why not just play it at a neutral venue that suits both teams?

    Is it though?

    Surely it’s only special because you’re playing in front of a huge crowd in the biggest game of your life?

    An empty stadium is an empty stadium.

    Any pro would love to have Wembley on their CV especially if they play for smaller clubs. They'll be gutted not to play in front of what would likely be the biggest crowd most of them would ever play in front of. However if you had two Northern teams they should be given the option of Old Trafford or Anfield for example.

    Without the fans the players and manager celebrations just look like a bunch of drunks on a stag night.:hehe:

    Probably because they’re tied to Wembley contractually
