Crikey, that lot seems totally crackers to me?

Two teams have to keep all their players together and motivated till June 20th, the one that goes up is miles behind the other teams in League 2 when it comes to bringing in new players.

Then in a week or not much more, the winning team will be starting next season's preseason, or if they are allowed a holiday, will be starting a couple of weeks behind the rest.

Who on earth chose the 'central' stadium of Bristol to host the final - Torquay?

Ashton Gate is an amazing stadium these days, I am sure the teams/fans will enjoy the weekend down there.
The Harbourside is close by with hundreds of bars/restaurants on the waters edge.
Good choice of ground but not central.
Stockport for me

Nope. Not counting last season cos it was all to pot with the pandemic the last three finals were:

2019 11 May
2018 12 May
2017 14 May

This is a good 5 weeks after that, totally crazy. I would imagine they wouldn't get a lot of choice regarding stadiums. Most would be dug up in June!

National League Season didn’t start until early October, a Month behind the Football League. They also had several little periods of stop/start due to various C-19 outbreaks. They were always going to be playing catch-up...

Not sure the logic of spinning it out over 3 weeks. Presumably a bit of extra exposure for the National League.
Anyone but Notts County or Chesterfield to go up for me.

Fair enough, nothing against them, they should be in the league obviously they would just be another club who would steamroll past us, which is a depressing thought.

That goes for whichever club comes up to be fair.

I'd prefer the winner to be in order Stockport, Tartlepool, Notts County, Chesterfield, Torquay. Bromley can fk right off.

Gary Johnson wasn't too impressed with Ashton Gate as the final venue, perhaps he'd have preffered Old Trafford then.

Yes, I agree but surely that should be all the more reason to get the semi's played reasonably promptly and get straight on with the final after that. It doesn't seem fair that the team who wins the playoff will start the next season at a disadvantage twice over.

Last set of fixtures on 29th May, then playing on the next 3 Saturdays, not much wiggle room apart from maybe playing this midweek which would bring it all forward a week?

If they’re serious about getting in the League the lack of rest won’t bother them!

So out of that lot, it would be Stockport for me.
A good away day with some good pubs close to the ground, and I haven't been there since we won the league in 2006.

They already have a proven striker at this level in Madden to help do so. Yet another striker who couldn't hit a barn door for us.

... and Rooney!

(Whether he will be there come August remains to be seen. Horwich, perhaps?)

Stockport have potential to do a double promotion, decent sized Club with a good following, owners seem to have a few quid…

Torquay 4 2 up now, 4th a very dodgy looking pen given against Mark Ellis, looked like a good challenge to me.

Ellis got the ball for sure so any last hope for Notts Co. was killed by the ref.

A much better atmosphere at that match than at Wales vs Switzerland but that's because the Wales fans probably would've had a better view if they'd gone to Armenia.

National League playoff final tickets will cost £41 each (plus booking & handling fees). No Concessions.

Both Hartlepool United and Torquay United have been allocated around 3,100 tickets each.

I wonder if Barry would agree. If only the mods hadn't deleted all his posts and disabled his account, and then lied to us about it, we would be able to ask him.
