Much as it was unsurprising, it was still a fairly depressing spectacle. On Thursday night, Aston Villa and Spurs put out reserve teams for their UEFA Cup matches against CSKA Moscow and Shakhtar Donetsk, and they both paid a predictable price for it, crashing out of the competition.

To the average viewer of Premier League football, the nature of the non-league game often seems as baffling as it would do if they turned up and the referee was nude.
