    National League 2020/21

    Any chance that cup in Scotland that non league clubs get an invite to will happen again. I'd love a trip to Montrose.

    Byyyeeee, see you in, sorry, see you when Ron leaves. Overwhelming emotion for me is relief, would have been better if we'd continued playing the yoofs, tanked it and went down at Xmas. Hope we put out a full youth side for the last 3 games. I quite frankly don't want to ever see any of these...

    I'd rip your arm off if you offered us 20th right now. Want Hartlepool and Sutton up, the others are all better away days. Hopefully we can get to games next season, I'm looking forward to a beer with B2TF at Halifax.

    The proper relegation thread.

    Ron was horrified when we weren't named in the line up for this new league, as he pointed out we've won more trophies than Tottenham in the last 30 years.

    Sorry we might not be joining after all, some very clever people have decided to make a new league and fingers crossed it starts next season, with 6 spots up for grabs. Congrats on your promotion Hartlepool, Sutton, torquay and whoever wins the playoffs

    The proper relegation thread.

    Not really bothered if it's Orient, Barrow or Newport tbh, just fingers crossed Colchester aren't the ones to put the nail in the coffin. But with this great news of the euro league hopefully starting next season and 6 clubs chucked out suddenly there are spaces to fill. Who would have thought...

    The proper relegation thread.

    I hope I'm wrong but it all points to payback for 1990, we went to Layer Road, won 2-0 and effectively relegated Colchester to the non-league. We're going down, that's not up for debate, it'd just be nice if they weren't the ones to send us packing.

    Yep. The only hope for either of us is if that was Col U last points of the season. They can effectively relegate us on Tuesday which would be the nightmare scenario for us.

    Proposed Return of Fans

    Didn't realise this division was playing so late into May, might get to a couple of games to get an early glimpse of how many we'll lose by next season.

    Yeah something like that, but I'm sure the ground was not an issue in itself, it was that they had no plans/funding in place to upgrade it in time. The difference between League 2 and this level is so negligible I really don't see the need for such differing stadia criteria. If Morecambe's...

    I'm surprised Scally hasn't got on the back of all the major redevelopment of that marsh land between Medway and Gravesend, most of which is owned by the shady guy who owns Ebbsfleet. Tons of room for a new stadium there. I'd equate your current time to Phil Brown mark I for us, so you're maybe...

    You have to have plans and funding in place, all verified, don't you? Wasn't that a reason Stevenage Borough didn't get promoted all those years ago, they had a stadium that could be promoted but they had nothing in place to upgrade it for the season after where they had to have more seating...

    The proper relegation thread.

    Oddly I think the further we sink the more viable, for Ron, a new stadium becomes. The plans have been changed so often since the very first Fossetts Farm unveil no one can keep up. It started as a, too big for us, all singing all dancing, hotel, cinema, shops galore stadium complex costing tens...

    The proper relegation thread.

    Now this is where the tangled web that has been weaved becomes mysterious. About 18 months ago Ron or someone wiped off half of the clubs debt. They paid all outstanding bank loans, they paid the Sainsbury's loan (remember they bailed us out back in 2010, paying off the £2M HMRC debt, it was...

    His asking price is ridiculous. I see him as the new Kassam. I think he wants to sell and he will sell, but only with a new stadium and only if he keeps control of the finances of the new stadium. If we get him out and we have a new stadium we're just another Oxford, held to ransom by our...

    Be quiet, you're 100% safe now, only 3 teams in the relegation picture. I've been researching drinking establishments in Kings Lynn and Altrincham since October. Only silver lining would be if Grimsby can get their act together and send Colchester with us.

    Brown has said he was offered a 3 year deal, turned it down. ‘People think I must be crazy’: Phil Brown targets Southend rescue act Article about his return, Ron thinks he's going to stay next season regardless of division. If Ron's budget for the club continues to be below basement level then...

    The ‘who is joining us from L2 next season then’ thread

    I don't think there should be 3 up 3 down, but I think the playoffs should be modified so the team that finishes 3rd bottom in League 2 would be in the playoff final against a National League side. With how many professional sides are now at this level there is also an argument for a...

    If Sutton go up as champions and say an Eastleigh/Bromley get 7th and win the playoffs then Torquay and Hartlepool will be in the division as well. If Wrexham do just spend their way out there's going to be a hell of a fight for one promotion spot.

    With the new owners are Wrexham 'going for it' in a Crawley/Salford/Fleetwood/Forest Green style or is it going to be a bit more thought out?
