Welcome to the football league wev.1
Sky do, but they don't seem show much league two at the moment.
Compared to BT's national league coverage.
They'll be shit loads of all football league on Sky from 2024-2025 though with the new deal.0
Bostock deliberate crossbar challenge miss to give Scott his redemption moment. Genius from him.
Chuffed for Notts County . Amazing football team. Would have been ridiculous for them to not get promotion. Ridiculous that they had to do it on pens0
Notts are going to do this!0
Had to be Dobra didn’t it.0
There you go!0
Slocombe nightmare, but Rodrigues is having an off day and Langstaff not involved at all. Some nice control of the midfield, but Notts will need to up their game in the second half.
Expecting goals for both sides this half.0
I watched that game. It was a lovely goal from Hoskins. A fitting promotion winner from the league two player of the season. Tranmere were alright, gave it a go in the second half, and could have made things more interesting. Just lacking a bit of quality up front. Which was odd to see, because that's not what I associate Tranmere with.
Manchester based ex Stockport player Connor Jennings suspiciously gifting Stockport one of the penalties to give them a chance, but they fell short anyway.0

As long as the Franchise go down from League One, that's alright by me.
Unlucky Bromley. Fatigue evidently a factor in extra time, obviously playing with 10 men amplifying that. Chesterfield having one or two players with an extra level of quality making a difference too. As with Boreham Wood, keep most of that lot together and it's pretty nailed on you'll be competing up there again next year.
Annoyingly I was working earlier so missed all of the Notts game. Never in doubt that one though wev? Looking forward to watching the final.
I'm not overly keen on the one off playoff game format in the national league, but they do manage to deliver some thrilling football matches.0

On the plus side we could be playing you soon
Playing Sheffield Wednesday in the league again would be pretty nice yes
Managed a trip to Hillsborough in 2003 when we beat you 3-2 the August after we got promoted. Our Trinidadians Carlos and Big Den scored. Big crowd, big win. One of my favourite away games. Although I don't think you were at your best that season.1

Honestly I think the only team in league one who have deserved to go up is Plymouth and I really hope they win the league, they’ve been consistently incredible. We had an easy run in and dropped too many points whilst Ipswich only dropped 2 points!
Unfortunately we don’t have a chance in the play offs, my favourites for that are Barnsley then Bolton, think whoever wins that game will go up. I don’t think derby will but I think they’ll run away with the league next year, but they’ll reach the final so they might pull it off.
Well good luck anyway!
You'll be the 3rd best side in the league over 46 games and deserve to go up.0
Huge congratulations neoELITE! Bit nervy was it? Makes the final whistle more enjoyable surely. Enjoy it man.
Harsh on Sheffield Wednesday missing out with those points.1
I was speaking to someone from work last night who is good mates with one of the Fylde players and is going. Hoping to be part of a boozy celebration party. So Bradford Park Avenue can stay up if they win today and Kettering lose and Blyth don't win. They're in good form unbeaten in 6. King's Lynn are likely to beat Curzon Ashton at home, so Fylde will probably need to win given their shitter goal difference. A huge game for everyone.
Chester have had a fantastic season to comfortably claim that 3rd spot after consecutive seasons of being shit. Genuinely hope they go and win the playoffs now. They deserve a bit of joy.0

@Fatsam Geddon Youngy! You forgot Ben Tozer. Another Janner. He was a youth product of ours.
Oh yeah, he was!
I think Young being with club prior to takeover adds an extra dimension to his part in promotion. I’ve seen him almost single handedly win games for us with his will to get a result when we were shit. Played a huge part in us avoiding relegation in the season up to covid lockdown. Basically what he did for Torquay prior to joining us. Nice man too. Probably won’t play much for us next season, but now forever a club legend.0
It's all very exciting. Playing teams we've not played for ages, restoring old rivalries, potential promotions, big crowds in an expanded stadium, wondering who we're going to sign next, but I'm mostly looking forward to moaning about how shit the Papa Johns Trophy is.4
Super Paul Mullin!
I've been fortunate to see one or two decent players up front for Wrexham. Gary Bennett including 47 goals in a season, King Karl Connolly, Andy Morrell and his 34 league goals to win us promotion, the ridiculous goals and tricks of Lee Trundle, but to score two like he did yesterday in a match of that importance on top of the way he performed against Notts County. He's my favourite. He's the difference. Unbelievable.
I thought our two wingbacks were exceptional yesterday too. Unusually for us, we picked both of them up from the national league, so looking forward to seeing them in full flight in the football league. And Elliot Lee has got better and better over the season. I knew he was supposed to be creative and a goal threat, but his work rate and desire to get stuck in is just phenomenal. He's got a big role to play next season. Our whole side was great though. Will Ben Foster be persuaded to stay? Will Ollie Palmer want to move back closer to home? He's not quite been the player he was for us. Will Everton try and buy Paul Mullin when they're relegated? There are question marks there, but we'll be in good shape for league two I guarantee it.1

I agree with what Rob McElhenney said Paul Mullin is one of the best footballers in the world.
He just fucking is.
Parkinson manager of the year yes, record breakers with all that pressure is incredible. My favourite speech to the crowd at the end.
I Iove him.
I'm a bit happy.5
So close I'm scared.
It was nervy, but once the first goal finally went in we were okay and Yeovil's performance slumped knowing they were relegated. Saturday against Boreham Wood is going to be a battle.
The Always Sunny in Philadelphia lot were behind us tonight enjoying themselves, particularly Charlie Day.

Jesus. Get a room. I might not be here next season to start this thread.
Ah I never considered that impact of a Plymouth Argyle promotion.
I might give up on football for a bit anyway, loan my season ticket out for a couple of years and do something less stressful.0
