The Play Offs

I notice Huddersfield finished with a goal difference of -2.

If they get promoted, does anyone know if they will be the first team with a negative goal difference to do so?

F A Trophy

I suspect Lucy's comment was tongue-in-cheek.

Exeter playoff

Did Exeter win? Really who cares? I watch the England International games but in reality that's it. The game is basically a farce with convoluted rules that no one basically has a clue what goes on from one play to the next. Just look at the England v Italy game - what a farce that turned out to be...

The Play Offs

Millwall's promotion shows the nonsense of the play-offs in their current guise. 9pts below Scunny and Fleetwood and nearer the relegation zone than the Champions and with a measly goal difference.

An odious fan base as well.

Exeter playoff

If Exeter go up that'll be two community-owned clubs promoted from League 2 this,year with Portsmouth going-up as well Exeter have done really well. Personally I'd give a lot of the credit for that to Tisdale, and suggest that any club he was managing, whatever it's ownership model, would have a go...

I wonder how the petition calling for Tisdale to be sacked is getting on?

At last - some advantage to finishing higher.

Hartlepool Fan

I always feel Roy McF gets unfairly maligned. He came in at the last minute after Mike Bateson and Colin Lee dillied and dallied and eventually parted ways after the Barnet escape of 2001. McFarland was chosen over Rosenior and had to quickly assemble a team that went through changes as the season p...

The Play Offs

I'd like to see the playoff system whereby, if you finish "bottom" of the playoff positions, you play the team above you. Whichever team wins that game plays the team above, and finally you have the final against the team that finished top of the playoffs positions. Seems the fairest way - that way...

The Play Offs

In the early days of the playoffs that last option was tried (I seem to remember Rotherham surviving a drop by winning against a team trying to climb up and over them) Division 3 Rotherham were relegated to Divison 4 via play-offs in 1988. They lost to Swansea, who then beat us in the two-legged fi...

Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

So Kevin Foster, the local Conservative MP still avoids saying if he supports the sale of the freehold. A simple yes or no is required. The Conservative mayor is in favour of selling so why is our MP unable to say yes or no? I'm certainly no Tory but Kevin Foster has been vocal about this issue for...

Season tickets

There are, IMHO, a number of fallacious arguments being used in this thread to justify not buying a season ticket. I share the concerns about GI's record but, at least at this point, their interest as property developers is best served by a successful team. Only if the Club survives or thrives can ...

Season tickets

GI are property developers. They care about the freehold of the stadium and nothing else. If it suits their agenda for the club to be successful, then it will happen, regardless of whether supporters buy season tickets or not. If it suits their agenda for the club to fail and falter, then it will h...

The Play Offs

Next Saturday, I will go to Sandy Park to watch Chiefs play Saracens, with home advantage for finishing 2nd, as opposed to the opposition's 3rd place. Chiefs get something for finishing higher. In football, they probably would not want to do without the revenue of the two-legs. So, why not do as the...
