I know it sounds weird to say that a team 'has already won' before a ball has been kicked - but in the case of Accrington Stanley before this weekends play offs i can't help but feel that that is true.

Having the smallest budget in the league, yet having one of the most consistent and entertaining teams is no mean feat. In fact it is a miracle!

I was gutted when they missed out on Saturday - but can a team ever really lose in the play offs when they were favourites for relegation and outperformed many with far greater resources!

I have written a book about Stanley and other teams in the lower leagues called Another Bloody Saturday: A Journey to the Heart and Soul of Football.
It celebrates clubs like Stanley and Wimbledon - plus many more.
Check it out on Amazon if you love your football in the lower leagues.

Good luck Stanley!

Accrington don't have the smallest budget in the league.

Still, be amazing if they managed to do it.

Exactly. I would think you lot, Newport, Morecambe and possibly York all had smaller budgets this year.

But, atm, it's kinda romantic - and also trendy - saying it's Stanley who have the smallest budget.

Always liked AFC due to the history and mutual dislike of MK so won't be unhappy if they make it, even though I have recently detected an element of smugness on here from some. I would like to see Stanley go up however as they deserve it on the season, but thats not what the Play Offs are about.

Why? Its a positive book featuring some amazing Wimbledon characters met at Stanley.
Cheer up. Dont buy it if you dont want to.
Ignore him. That is sadly his sense of humour.

I don't want to ruin a thread, but hopefully he will be less rude in the future after reading this.

That response, plus the Podcasts one... shows me that he just enjoys the one or two likes he gets from other people who enjoy putting people down.

Yes this forum isn't a forum to sell stuff, but if someones taken the time to write a book ~ what kind of person just says bore off?

Edit: Sorry in advance for probably forcing a moderator to close the thread :s
