I really like the play offs. I appreciate it means a team getting promoted that is maybe not as good as one which isnít, but everyone knows where they stand at the beginning of the season and what it adds to the season outweighs that for me. I donít even mind the national league where play off places go even lower but teams finishing higher get more of an advantage. I would even like to see 4up/4down from the championship to league one.

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

Donít really care but I guess I hope Crewe win so we can maybe pick off some of the Crawley players as some of them looked good.

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.

  Your not on your own Tabasco. I am totally with you on this one.

MK Dons was excellent for me. Down the branch line to Fenny Stratford and a short walk. Always that bit extra to the game.

I like the play offs because one of the best moments of my life happened after 93 minutes. What a day.

Well done Crawley, thoroughly deserved too. I think they will lose a few of those players though.

Also well done VAR as it was clearly no penalty. However I would like to know why Chris Long wasn't booked as it was dive surely.

Was at the game, Crawley very comfortable and played some good stuff. Crewe, who over the years have been the passing team were just a hit and hope sideÖLong has lost about three yards of pace! Didnít see much of Williams for Crawley but a good team performance gets them promoted.
Atmosphere poor, 33,300 there.

I very much doubt that, any of us would have picked Crawley for promotion at the start of the season. However, fair play to them they did what was required and achieved promotion as a result. I also believe that they wont bring anything to the party, cos down that way, you are either Palace or Brighton.

I am rather hoping that their contribution to the party will be a good opportunity to secure 6 points.

They could be crucial points in their respective blocks.

I see that cheating tosser is still playing for them - we need to make sure he gets a warm Sixfields welcome . Disappointed Bolton didnít go up - they deserved on the seasonís performance plus I think we were more likely to take points off Oxford than them.

Just looked at what investment they've had and how the current owners came to be..... very interesting piece on their official site from April 2022 following the takeover.....

"WAGMI United also pledged a new era of unprecedented transparency and accountability to Crawley Town Football Club supporters and the Crawley community. With Johnson and Smith assuming roles as club directors, they plan to allow the fans to decide whether or not they keep those roles for the following season if the team does not achieve its goal: earning promotion to League One by the end of their second season in charge.

"If we're trying to build a community-club, and we are, then we have to build in mechanisms to hold ourselves accountable,"  said Eben Smith, WAGMI United co-founder. "So if Crawley Town Football Club doesn't get promoted to League One by the end of our second season, which we think is about 50/50, then we under-performed. If we underperform, Crawley Town fans should get to vote on who the next directors of the club are. We might run for reelection because it was clearly all Preston's fault, but we donít just get to hold the fanbase hostage because our dad invented Cablevision."


So they achieved their goals....and the directors kept their jobs as a result!!
