Title: Who do we want to get promoted from the National League
Post by: west stand oap on May 02, 2021, 14:32:00 pm
Personally I do not want Gary Johnson to win the automatic place with Torquay but have nothing against any of the other 3 conteders Sutton, Hartlepool and Stockport.
For the other place maybe one of the former efl clubs like Halifax or Chesterfield but not Hollywood owned Wrexham.
It will be a while before we know as they do not complete their fixtures until 29th May.

I know it's Gary Fúcking Johnson, but I have a real soft spot for Torquay not only because of friends who are fans, but I will never forget the last day of the season where they gave us the win we needed to stay up.

Singcobb, i too like a weekend away in Devon, which year are you talking about reference the win ? My best visit was the win in 2000 with the Town having almost half the ground that day.

Post by: Steve Massive Massey on May 03, 2021, 14:43:01 pm
My mate here is the only lower league supporter I know and he's Notts County.

The reason I mention is they're all fuming about the recent appointment of hot shot upcoming managerial star Ian Burchnall. Decent CV really but since they ousted Neal Ardley when comfortably in the (weird) play off zone for this chap, their form has bombed.

Better the devil you know?

If my memory serves me right it would have been around 92. We had to win to stay up and basically Torquay went through the motions and let us win.

Stockport County absolutely!
Have had the opportunity to visit in more recent seasons with Oxford City...banging place for the pubs!

Failing that, Notts County, Wrexham, Halifax Town or Hartlepool would be good.

No interest whatsoever in Torquay or Sutton United!

I saw Sutton play in a FA Cup qualifying tie when I visited a friend in London about a decade ago. A lovely little club, but I think there ground is probably a worse standard than Silbey Rangers or Brackley.

Torquay could tempt me back into making an away trip - one of my favourite parts of the country and one of the only clubs outside the Cobblers that I have a soft spot for.

Their pitch used to be an absolute quagmire, like Oxford City's before both got 3G pitches in.

If we do visit Sutton Utd next season, strangely there are two train stations, though like Stourbridge, not really necessary to change for nearest...the one in the town centre is only around a 15-20min walk away.

Bromley, under the new management of Cobblers legend Andy Woodman have moved back into the playoff places following a win over Hartlepool today, Billy Waters netted for Torquay as they opened up a four point gap at the top. Sutton have a difficult game tomorrow against Notts County, and on Saturday Torquay entertain Bromley.

Think i'd like to see Torquay win it, and FC Halifax to win the playoffs....I never did go to The Shay

Torquay. As others got a soft spot for them. From memory we won their once to seal the play offs and once to get automatic promotion (2000). Both times the harbour was a sea of claret and white and the sun beating down.

Almost impossible (might even be with the actual games to be played) but Boreham Wood. Can then bore (not intended) everyone with how I have played there a few times in my youth.  :-*



edit: cant find the playoff game so must be mistaken. Im sure we have had 2 parties down in Devon though and celebrated on the pitch  ???

How old are you? Lol!

We won there in the 1984/85 season, 6th May, it was the final game of the season, and we ended up finishing 23rd on 47 points, they finished 24th on 41 so if they had beaten us we would have finished bottom! That was still in the old re-election days and all the bottom four were re-elected for the following season.

We also won there on Easter Monday 1997, that was the first win in a seven game unbeaten run at the end of the season which eventually led to us making the playoffs and of course beating Swansea at Wembley to get promoted.

37   :-\ So that rules out 84/85  ;D
Might have been 97. I'm going for a lie down!

Last time I went we lost 3-0 on the opening game of the season. I remember that much

Wasn't their chairman rather outspoken about us avoiding the drop at Kiddies expense that year? I thought there was a bit of bad feeling as a result of that, or is my brain getting as addled as Woodies apparently is?
I was there for the game in 97, stood by the corner flag. Agree with others it's a nice part of the country is that 'rivierra', for a long weekend.

Congratulations to Sutton United, who have secured promotion with a game to spare.

Torquay, Stockport, Hartlepool and Notts County are all already assured of a playoff place, with Wrexham, Chesterfield, Bromley, Eastleigh and FC Halifax Town all still in with a chance of joining them.

Eastleigh travel to Altrincham tomorrow night to use up their game in hand, a win would see them move up to 6th and knock Chesterfield out of the last spot. The last round of games wil then take place on Saturday, all 1230 kickoffs when the top 7 will be finalised.

The elimination matches will then take place the following weekend, 4th v 7th (3) and 5th v 6th (2). The winners of those games will then travel the next weekend to meet the teams finishing 2nd and 3rd and then the final the week after (20th June) to decide who goes up with Sutton. Due to Wembley being used for the Euros the final will be played at Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City.

The late finish to the National League season explains why the EFL fixtures for next season will be released a week later (on 24th June) than the Premier League fixtures (16th June)

Good to be getting trips to Nailsworth (Stroud ) and Birkenhead (Liverpool) again too!

Sutton's not great tbf! Contrary to what have been reading on social media from those who clearly haven't been... forget the station being a two minute walk away. It's an obscure line, requiring a change at Clapham Junction or somewhere, or at the main Sutton High Street station - which frankly, would be silly, the main station only being a 15 odd minute walk anyway!

Hoping for Stockport County to join them!

I've been to plenty of away games thanks, I've ticked off 115 grounds across the country. As much as I don't share you're enthusiasm for going back to town's and grounds in this league, including Colchester which is the most convenient place from here, I'll still get to as many as can get to.

If you'd seen their pitch before the 3G installment, you might well have changed your stance... made the London Road quagmire look positively lush!
If you ever go away, no doubt you'd be the first on here bleating how unprofessional an outfit they were, travelling for it to be off!

Back on for the glory fans who think being by the seaside makes a good day!

Durham btw, before and after Hartlepool would have been good!  ;)

Keeper scored a last minute equalizer for Torquay, taking it to extra time.

Superb game, had it all. Torquay unlucky not to win in 90mins, couple of goals ruled out. Poor Billy fluffed his pen.

Maybe should sign Torquays keeper, good at set pieces!

Excellent game of passionate football, maybe the England wasters should take note. Really gutted for Torquay, their keeper must thinking he did all the hard work saving the first two pens only to be let down by his team mates.
