THE Football Association's B-team plan has been described as "nonsense" by Millwall manager Ian Holloway.
An FA commission, headed by chairman Greg Dyke, last week suggested creating a new division in the Football League for Premier League reserve players.
League Three could be established within two years and would be made up of ten clubs from the Conference and ten top-flight B teams.
The suggestions laid out in Dyke's report are targeted at boosting the number of home-grown players in the English league system.
Dyke believes his plan will see more players qualify for the national team in the future.
But Holloway has accused the former Brentford chairman of "not understanding the real issues" at stake in the game.
"It's rubbish," Holloway said. "The Premier League call the shots and the Premier League wants B teams – so Greg Dyke is trying to give them what they want. It will never work.
"The lower-league pyramid is already being killed bit by bit with the new rules on youth development.
"Do they really think young kinds playing in League Three will then play for England? Are you serious? They don't even pick anyone from the Championship!
"Dyke has got no chance of pulling this off and I don't think he understands the real issues.
"The way to produce young players for England is to stop the big clubs stacking and racking them in the first place.
"The reason big clubs want League Three is because they hoover up all the young players but have nowhere to play them.
"I don't understand the point of it. The Premier League might as well loan their young players to Bristol Rovers now that they're in the Conference.
"How can you play at that level and then go and play for England? I don't understand what Dyke is talking about – I find it totally embarrassing.
"How on earth is that going to help our players? There won't by any fans there watching, it won't be competitive and the games won't mean anything."
Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City are among the clubs who support Dyke's B-team plan.
But Holloway believes the influence held by the Premier League over English football has become too great.
"For our old First Division to become the all-powerful and all-mighty Premier League, which is a separate organisation, should never have been allowed to happen," he said.
"Not in a million years.
"You've got billionaires with boat-loads of money making themselves richer and richer by writing their own rules all the time and it's wrong. It's an absolute load of nonsense.
"The Premier League should be part of the Football League – not separate – but the teams at the top call the shots.
"If I get a parking ticket, I can't ask the council to overlook it – but that's what they do at the top, they make their own rules.
"The people that vote on these decisions are the people making the decisions, so they are making themselves stronger.
"We've got no control over them whatsoever and it's absolute nonsense.
"The Premier League are a law unto themselves. If we're worried about the England team, why didn't the Premier League put rules in beforehand?
"It's too late now – the horse has bolted. Football in this country will never go back to how it was because the brand of the Premier League is so strong."
The Football League have said that Dyke's proposals are "not acceptable in their current form."
Lions chief executive Andy Ambler, who is a member of the Football League board, added: "Everybody wants the England team to be as strong as it can be.
"However, personally, I disagree with the B-team idea. Just because they have got it in Spain and Germany, that doesn't mean it will work within our pyramid system.
"What worries me about Dyke's report is that there are some good ideas in there, but they might all be thrown out because of this one."
