I'm not around these parts much these days since I moved to the south coast back in 2013. I still 'follow' NTFC but from a distance and have to admit I've only been a few times since the Bradford loss at Wembley.

Just wanted to say a couple of things:

1. I think most of you have taken the defeat by Mansfield pretty well, considering the circumstances of the whole picture. I had hoped that a wrong from the semi-final playoff years ago was going to be corrected at last, in the way the Gas finally got revenge for that famous night in Sixfields. As many have said, I too was outraged by the circumstances of what happened on the last day - it wouldn't have happened in the Prem. But it seems anything goes in irrelevant League 2.

2. Have to say, I wasn't that thrilled when Brady was appointed, but in his defence, so far he has exceeded expectations and deserves a chance now to bring in some players over the summer and push on. He's only had a year and was no doubt hamstrung by some players he didn't want who were still under contract. Here's hoping he can unearth a few gems for the coming season.

Very decent summary Bog Paper and no inferiority complications from you in declining to travel to places like Barrow and Carlisle let alone Northampton. Common sense prevails😎. Could do with more reasoned debate such as above.

Gate = 37,303.

No evidence of potential (sustainability) above League 1 there.

Oh dear, what a shame for Mansfield, not. I actually thought Port Vale were the least likely side of the four to go up, shows what I know.

I watched the Wrexham v Grimsby game on BT and what a game that was. It was 1 - 0 to Wrexham with a soft penalty, then 1 - 1, then 2 - 1 Grimsby, then 2 - 2, then 3 - 2 Wrexham, then 3 - 3, then 4 - 3 Grimsby, then 4 - 4, and finally 5 - 4 Grimsby right near the end of extra time. I fancy them to beat either Solihull or Chesterfield to go up next weekend. Ryan Reynolds and the other fella who I have never heard off were in attendance too. It just goes to show that pumping in lot's of money doesn't always help - does it Salford !!

Vale get their reward. They should have had our place in the Covid year play-offs so something or other.

Not enamoured by either side, but Vale deserved their success today.

And at least Grimsby's win saves us all from the hype that would have surrounded Wrexham v Salford, Sky will be very disappointed.

Wrexham fans don't need to worry about this now

I got the impression that tMansfield seemed more concerned with attendance figures than with actually winning! Only 15000 from them today and 20000 odd from PV. Against Grimsby we took over 40000 which is more than both PV and Mansfield put together. Both sides did not look like League One material to me. Still as Mansfield quoted a bit 'embarrassing!

At least. There's about 190 odd to choose from, but some are more successful than others in cups and that, so why would you choose the one you born in? Huh?

Some people are born in or brought up in a town but choose to prefer the success of a different town/city over their own.
Some people are born in or brought up in a country and generally prefer the success of that country over a different one, unless that country is represented by a town/city which is different from the one they chose when they were at infant/junior school, especially when they're from a town/city that is perennially in the bottom 2 divisions.

Poor decision to have the L2 playoff at Wembley and move the Rugby League final, which would have sold out Wembley, to Tottenham. It does beg the question that maybe this game would have been better off at the likes of Villa Park. Would the fans care? I wouldn’t if we’d got there and have to go to a Premier League ground.

There were 51000 there so that wouldn't fill Wembley and anyhow who cares if Wembley is sold out?
