Because i always read how pl2/u23 doesn't provide good enough competition, should that side exist anymore? we could sign the academy graduates and loan them to appropriate teams. just like chelsea do, but without pl2 side. if we need a player we could just recall them from loan. so we would have about 25 players in first team and 30 on loans. i dont think there should be second teams in england like in spain or germany and loaning players can help lower league teams.
