Yes he should have been sent off for stamping on Jay Williams - just for once I wish they had VAR.

The commentators were saying that most of Crawley's squad were plucked from non league - shades of Graham Carr's team of 86/87.

Whatever way you cut it Massive King Dongs have been a PR disaster for Plastic Town.

As for that goalkeeper what a revelation he is, he was almost playing as a centre back in the first leg.
Amazing distribution, barely had any saves to make over the two legs so hard to know about his shot stopping. Would happily take Kelly and Lolos if we could.

They interviewed that Kelly fellow after the game with Orsi alongside him and he was about half the size of Orsi, it was quite amusing. He was also quite literally speechless - yes I wouldn't mind him either.

I have to say Crawley were mighty impressive, they just simply blew MK away. I have to confess to bursting out laughing when Jay Williams scored that goal after a few minutes to make it 4 - 0. They just never looked back after that and could easily have had two more, a sitter missed when the guy lobbed the keeper but didn't hit it hard enough and another hit the post. I wouldn't want to be Crewe.

The Crawley keeper didn't cover himself in glory when we last played at Crawley, he appeared to be much better over the two legs.

Norwich v Leeds. A good advert for a one-off match.

Good, it's what he deserves, pity the ref didn't see it though as the donkeys would have been down to 10 men.

I doubt that would have made much difference mate.

Can I be the first to mention we took 4 league points off Oxford this season? We are therefore better than them.

Absolutely, but Bolton were awful.
Just goes to show what a little bit of investment can do.

I may be on my own with this, but I look forward to playing Oxford and possibly MK. Those games have a bit of an edge to them. I am sure that I can find somebody else to dislike next season though.

When a team (Oxford) can get promoted after finishing a 46 match season 10 points behind their opponents (Bolton) shows what a mockery the play off system is. Finishing 3rd in the division should get you the 3rd promotion place. I fully understand the reasons for the play off system but have never liked them even when we were promoted for finishing in 7th place under KC.
Today we have teams in 6th and 7th places playing for promotion from the 2nd division.

I fully expected Bolton to beat Oxford with ease but it turned out the other way. Bolton just weren't at the races and as much as I dislike Oxford they deserved to win it.

Hopefully they will get some hammerings next season.

No doubt the same will happen today, I fully expect Crawley to win so it's bound to be Crewe.

I don't like the play offs for the same reasons you state, but alternatively I like the play offs because it keeps games 'interesting' for more teams deeper into the season, when previously the 'middle teams' were playing out meaningless games (to them) just to see out their fixtures.
It doesn't eradicate the meaningless games completely (we were effectively 'safe' in March) but it reduces the amount of them for longer.
