League Two North
League Two South
If we had assurances that this is not some half baked scheme to get Premiership reserve teams in the FL by the back door I reckon the plan might have something about it. Less teams in a division so more meaningful games, meaning higher attendances especially with L2 regionalised to offset the loss of the 4 games.
York, Wrexham, Torquay, Darlo etc all get a sniff of getting back in the league where, frankly, they belong.
Not sure how they go about shifting the leagues. As Joe says, that final season would be a bit ridiculous. I really don't see a way for them to work it. .......
Just did a mental exercise in my head to work out how this would work. Worked out that if the leagues were to switch to 20 and expand from 4 to 5 from 1 season to the next, 8 teams would have to be promoted from the conference in one go and and 12 teams from L2 would have to be relegated into the new division three. I don't see a viable way to expand the leagues that won't cause a serious stink.
The initial thought is that this seems entirely unfeasible. Need way more details.
Well, depends on your perspective. Yes, the teams on the pitch didn't deserve to stay in the league, but they have the fanbases and infrastructure that deserve FL clubs. You could argue that they only fell out of the FL because teams like Fleetwood and Crawley bought their way into the FL and forced these proper clubs out. I'd happily swap those kind of clubs with Wrexham, Stockport, Lincoln etc.Frankly, no, they don't. All were relegated on merit - twice in Darlington, York, and Torquay's case.
Ok, but by that logic, Crawley and Fleetwood deserve to be football league clubs, even though they simply bought their way to success.Hey do we count as one of the "deserved" ex-league clubs? We do have more fans than many of them after all.
A club (more often than not) is where it deserves to be.
No surprise that the conference teams have basically all summed up the following:
Teams pushing for promotion/ex league clubs : Great idea
Teams who struggle and rarely move down there: Terrible idea
Well, depends on your perspective. Yes, the teams on the pitch didn't deserve to stay in the league, but they have the fanbases and infrastructure that deserve FL clubs.
