League Two Play Offs 20:21 - May 7 with 1720 viewsdurham_exile

Last night I watched Donny Rovers cane Crewe 2-0.

Tonight after the pitch was passed fit to play Crawley are absolutely caning the Franchise 2-0 at HT.

An upset on the cards perhaps.

Dons look ragged and in truth have not been in this game.

Dons have lost all five play-off games in the past. Looks like making it six out of six.

Like everyone else I can't stand the franchise, but life would be easier for us next season if they were in League 1.

Much as that may be true for League 2 next season, the franchise deserve nothing but abject failure and the sooner they cease to exist the better. We don't even have to weep for the loss of the league side, because they're not a league side - they're an abomination who stole a league place purely for commercial gain and destroyed a proper football league club in the process.

I don't wish this, but Pete Winkleman will eventually die, we all do. I just hope MK Frankenstein dies with him.

So, have your opinions always been neutral on the subject?

Whilst I agree 110%, in fairness to W@nkleman, he was only guilty of asking the question (and he has surely been punished enough, by being gifted a face like a bucket of smashed crabs).

It’s the EFL that should be on their way to hell for allowing it to happen.

WOW.
I certainly don't feel like that about them but accept I am in the minority.
Personally feel franchisees are only what most Premiership clubs are these days anyway.
Wimbledon were a busted flush when PW got involved.and nobody can deny he hasn't

I think popular thinking goes something along the lines of….

Wimbledon had certainly hit the buffers, but if football wasn’t sustainable in SW17, then they should have died like all the others on long list of clubs that have disappeared, many to re-emerge as a Pheonix club (like AFC Wimbledon).

Their grave should not have been robbed for the bones, so that the people of MK, (would couldn’t be arsed to form their own club and start at the bottom like everyone else), could just jump straight into a league position.

If that wasn't bad enough, some non-league club that had worked hard to make it to the Conference were cheated out off a league place to replace the original Dons.

If that situation is acceptable and goes unchallenged, then there are no limits to the shithousery that would follow.

It can't be mentioned in the same breath as slavery, the holocaust etc but like all things that are very wrong, we should never stop calling it out, to make sure that it never happens again.

God forbid if the U's went into administration and were stolen by another City the best part of 100 miles away. I would much rather it just ended.

I agree about Prem clubs, foreign owned, foreign managers, foreign players, mostly for foreign TV. I’d be happy for the whole lot to leave us, to play in a World Series pantomime.

Like it!

As they say in the world of finance "Past performance is no guarantee of future results"

Last Season, Boreham Wood narrowly lost out on a place in the league, losing to Notts County in the play-offs, this year they were relegated by just one point.

Anderson not retained by Stevenage. Be no surprise if he signs for us but does worry me when injured players sign with Edwards a prime example last year.

Correct. They went from 21st to 2nd. Across the same two seasons Barrow went from 22nd to 9th and Carlisle 20th to 5th.

Doncaster finished 18th last season, were rock bottom after seven matches this season and are probably favourites to go up right now.

For purely selfish reasons I’m happy about that result. Donny’s new ground is on my ‘to do’ list, so hopefully if the dates are kind, I’ll be able to tick that one off.

I loved Belle Vue, because it was off the scale of shite and made Layer Rd look like the Emirates. As if it wasn’t naff enough, the last time I was there, an evening game, local boy Tony Christie was there singing his shit, sorry hit, ‘Show me the way to Amarillo’. As far as entertainment goes, it was the pits. I think it was a Friday night and I don’t think we did well.

Hopefully the game tonight will be good for Crawley, because if I’m ever going to finish the 92 (unlikely as it's taken me over 50 years to do 70 odd) , one day I will reluctantly have to visit the home of the MK Stealers.

TOOT I have been to Belle Vue on a few occasions including the one which confirmed their relegation to non league.

I was also at the "Tony Christie game" which was a Friday night and also a draw.

In more recent times we have not performed well at their new stadium which is a vast improvement to Belle Vue.

Similar to the JCS but they filled in the corners to in create capacity.

The match this season was dire and on a bitterly cold night too.

I was very surprised that they lost to Crewe after the dominance that they showed at Gresty Road.

Can the Franchise overturn a 3 goal deficit tonight. Possibly but an underdog Crawley v Crewe play off final would be interesting.

Got to be Crawley all the way this evening. As for the final, keeping Crawley in League 2 will obviously be better for the travelling support, but from this side of the country there's not a lot in it to be honest. Our record (and performances) at Crewe haven't been particularly glittering in recent years though.
