If two teams are to be promoted, then it should be the two teams with the most points over the season, the teams that rightly earned their promotion. There’s no play off to decide relegation. That could work too, bottom team relegated automatically, then have three games involving the 6 that finished above bottom and the losers all get relegated. Not going to happen, because the bottom 4 deserve to be relegated, like the top 2 deserve to be promoted.


Whereas I understand where you are coming from, the play offs have the potential of giving the Club an extra (circa) 10k paying customers through the gates over the three games. Big money spinner for those involved and could even be a bit of a financial life line to some clubs.

Also, it does keep the season alive and gives clubs something to play for. This season has been the very best example of that, with both the title and the play off places still up for grabs on the final day.

Yes, its a bit of a lottery (the same could be said for penalty shoot outs), but its probably the best of the options available.
First they fascinate the fools, then they attempt to gag the intelligent.

I would imagine that the streaming will effect the gate, particularly in relation to away support?

Mr Cleeve believes that we should be getting 2000+ for every game, as we used to but that was many years ago.

Whether he likes it or not pricing is an issue in these financially difficult times.

I think there will be well over 2000 there. Lots of people leave it to closer the day to buy tickets.  I think there will be a lot of away fans too.
Should push 3000.
Will be more if we win and play Chester.

Hardly surprising that Chester are looking at pulling in 4,000.  They have an average gate of just shy of 2,300.  We have an average of just over 1200.   As they say... you do the math.

Looking at numbers.   We have a higher average gate this season than we did in the NL last season, despite us enjoying big Clubs visiting the Walks last season and bringing decent numbers of fans.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?

Ticket sales currently over 1,200. The Kidderminster uptake is over 500.

Yes, I understand the reasoning, however it shouldn’t have replaced automatic promotion places, instead it should have been an addition. Have the two, or three automatic promotion places and then have play offs for one additional place. Whether that be from say 4 teams who were just outside a promotion place, or say 6 teams, with the other 2 teams coming from the league below who just finished above the automatic relegation places. That way, one extra team could get promoted, with another team getting relegated. Either way, the top finishing teams rightly get promoted, but the incentive is still there for others.
Ok, subject closed, good luck to the Linners for Sunday. My friend says we will win 2-0, with Coulson and Clunan scoring. I will take that.

Quite agree John. Football is in danger of becoming a bit of a circus, pandering to end of season dramas of 3 games to the detriment of the importance of a 46 game season. (won’t even mention the farce that is VAR and the overlight ball that ricochets uncontrollably in the penalty box a dozen times every match)

these things need reviewing,not necessarily changing…I am not advocating going back to the”good old days”, but a sensible balance has to be found. In the case of play-offs, I would suggest that a team is given a goal advantage for every 10 points clear they are at the end of the season on the opposition. So for example being 24 points clear of Brackley and Kidderminster, Lynn would start the play off  2-0 to the good. Chester, would start 1-0 up against Brackley….if Lynn and Chester were to meet, it would start 0-0, as 9 points separated them.

But surely Kidderminster, Brackley and Chester have got to do the same? Win there next 2 games. Only 1 out of the 3 will manage it

I am sure we won't let the large disparity in points lull us into a false sense of security. This Kidderminster are a very different proposition to the earlier season version and will probably feel that this game is something of a 'free hit'. I expect that they will start very much on the front foot, taking the game to us from the outset.
