General Discussion / Re: Kidderminster it is

Yep, thatís why you have to ask if the play offs are really fair, 24 points is the equivalent of 8 wins.  Itís County are in the same scenario as us, so if there is any justice both us and County will gain promotion through the play offs. The leagues should have a rethink and go back to the teams that got the most points over the season being promoted.

Not guaranteed two more games Mallard, we have to beat Kidderminster first.

Both us and Kidderminster are on great form, so should be a good contest. Certainly going to be tough and I think the first goal will be very important. Personally, I donít agree with playoffs, we got 24 points more than Kidderminster, that is huge, but has counted for very little. However, it is the way so we must use our home advantage and hopefully come out triumphant. Should be another good attendance, as Kidderminster will be well backed by their fans, can see it being 3000 plus.
Really hope we can get to the final, albeit Iím away on that day and wouldnít be able to make it. Is Ben Stephens available or not after being sent off. Not sure if it would take effect from the start of next season, or the play offs.

Firstly, congratulations to Fylde and I wish them well in the National League.
The play offs are not a fair way to decide who else gets promotion, it just isnít. It should be based on the 46, or whatever it is, league games. Take Notts County as a prime example, if they donít get promoted, it would be a travesty. You donít have play offs to decide any relegation, letís do away with the play offs completely.
Canít see that happening any time soon though. Hoping that Alfreton are our opponents for next Sunday, Kidderminster, like ourselves are on a very good run.

Yes Linnet, their current form is very impressive. Not lost in 6 and only conceded in one of them.

Great that Bradford look like winning tonight to keep their hopes alive. Remember they beat us at the Walks 1-0 a few years ago, when we were top and they were bottom. I watched the Curzon v Fylde highlights and have to say that Fylde looked pretty good, hopefully Bradford wonít give them a 2 - O lead inside 5 minutes.

Canít see anything other than a Fylde win at Bradford, but should they draw and we win, that would see us champions. If it is to be tge play offs, then with home advantage weíve got a good chance, but hope that we would go with a more attacking line up. If Bradford win tonight, they would still have a chance of avoiding relegation, but would need to win Saturday. There wonít be as many there Saturday as there would have been if Fylde hadnít won last night, but would be good to push 1800. I think we will beat Curzon, so maybe Bradford could help us out.

Whatever happens on Tuesday itís going to go down to the wire.  Canít ask for anything more than a climax like that at the end of the season. 

If we donít make it then at least we get a 2nd bite of the cherry via the play offs.  Letís hope the Walks is packed for Saturday.
Very true Mallard. It would be great to go into our last game knowing that a win would give us the title, so hoping Fylde donít win tomorrow. I think they will beat Bradford. Our game v Curzon wonít be a given either, but if it was in our hands, then we couldnít ask for any more. And as you say, if it were to be tge play offs, at least we would potentially have two home games. Had we have gotten a draw v Fylde, it would have been so different, shame TW didnít leave a bit earlier.

General Discussion / Curzon Ashton
« on: April 23, 2023, 06:09:40 PM »
After watching the highlights of Curzon v Boston, Iím confident they can get at least a draw against Fylde on Tuesday. They have now gone 1O games unbeaten and a draw for them v Fylde would take them up to 5th and a play off spot. They scored a penalty v Boston, so hopefully TDH has watched that, just in case.
Our game against Curzon will of course be a tough game, but if they prevent Fylde from winning Tuesday, at least we know what is needed. Would be great to not be involved in the play offs, even with home advantage, I still have memories of Slough, Chippenham and Redditch.

Linnet - certainly tight as you say. I think we will win the title, think that Fylde wonít win at Curzon on Tuesday. We will then take the title next Saturday with a win.

Excellent win today, congratulations to Mark and the team. Tough game for Fylde on Tuesday away at Curzon, a draw will do us fine. If that were the case, our superior goal difference would mean a win for us next Saturday and we will be champions, unless Fylde won their last game by a cricket score. If only we had got a draw at home to Fylde. Certainly exciting stuff, tough on Curzon, trying to get in the play offs and having to play the top two sides.

A win today at Darlington could see us in a favourable position come the final day of the season. Darlington are still in contention for a play off place, but their current form isnít good, so we are playing them at a good time. Assuming that we do win today, Fylde would then have to win today (Leamington at home, which they probably will) and Tuesday (Curzon away, could well drop points). We win today and Fylde drop points, itís in our hands for next Saturday v Curzon. Thatís how big todays game is for us, canít really see Leamington taking points off of Fylde today, but didnít expect Southampton to get anything at Arsenal, so you just never know, hopefully Leamington can put the brakes on Fylde. Did you see what I did there. Come on you Linnets.

If we get promoted, Iím not so sure any of our players would even want to go to Aldershot under TW. He walked out on them too, so why would they put their faith in him again.

I think if we win at Darlington, we will take the title the following week. Would expect Fylde to beat Leamington. Fyldeís midweek game at Curzon is where Iím hoping they will drop points, going for a draw. So if that all pans out, Fylde and us are level on points, but we have the much better goal difference. So a home win on the last day of the season against Curzon would do it.
Winning at Darlington would really put the pressure on Fylde. Didnít think we would be contemplating winning the title a few weeks ago, but itís a real possibility now.
