Don’t forget that Lincoln have had to do that in this league before.

Tbf the last time that happened Thatcher was prime minister, the USSR was a thing, and there was a club called Halifax Town AFC. It’s been a while.

Can't remember mate just recall loads of mongs out on social media being dicks about it
We offered him a deal in the Jan window, which he turned down because he obviously didn't know what level we'd be at...so in an absolutely astoundingly display of incompetence we then offered him reduced terms after promotion. He rejected and signed for you. Toto also rejected us and signed for you. Magnay had done it the season before as well, I think? Although I think that was merely a case of you being a division above and offering more.

Yep, looking forward to pretty much outnumbering you in your own backyard on a Tuesday again.

Haha, on the night that Lincoln all but secure a L1 playoff spot, no surprise to see what Impish is back posting about for the first time since 2019. #obsessed

Well done for remembering your password. Was it still CoWLEy'sB@LLsNeeDaFonDLing69?
SOC...long time no type. Hope you're well(dstone) bound next season.

Password was still that yes (all lower case though).

Who copped the blame then this time around?

A) Fenty
B) Holloway
C) Saviour Hurst
D) Bignot
E) Humberside Police

Definitely a split between A) and B). And definitely rightly so. We've been much better under Hurst once he'd had a few months with the side. Definitely looking forward to Wealdstone and all the Southern trips next season.

To be honest the way footy is going at the top the further away you can get from VAR the better! Conference looks ever stacked with the ex-league club gang so will be plenty of crackers again. Viva la fishy revolution ay :dk:

Good to see Halifax vs Grimsby staking a claim to stand alongside Wealdstone vs Barnet and Chesterfield vs The Treasury as next season’s big rivalries.
Count your lucky stars you weren't around for the Tranmere vs Barrow rivalry. Well, technically it was Tranmere vs Chipmunx...

When Southend join Grimsby and if two tinpotters replace them, the average size of club in the Conference might almost be on a par with L2 and that is definitely very very wrong. It's almost as disgusting as using the furlough scheme to compete in the Tunnocks caramel wafer stick trophy shield Cup league.

Bet you thought is was fine and dandy before YOU landed in it. Also, I'd have no issue with Tin Potters making it all the way to the Football League if they were made to do it the proper way- run the club on its sustainable matchday and commercial revenue, improve the players they can recruit on that income with good coaching and tactics and PLAY their way into the League. I'm willing to state that NOT ONE of them have got there in any legitimate way, with the possible exception of Burton, who won their windfall cash on the field of play, they've ALL bought their way in. Most of them had budgets that dwarfed even the "biggest" real Football League clubs in the division-Forest Green were chucking £3million into the squad every season! :£ :£ :£ :£ :£ :£ :£ :£

Barnet are historical tinpotters so don't count as they were just returning to their rightful place.
Indeed. A lot of wildly inaccurate Natural Order stuff going on in this thread.

What do you think of the BELTs/Brotherhood clubs who get there on unsustainable budgets, out of interest? Can't think of a single one of them that did it sustainably during our first time down here.

Who are you talking about in particular? None of them have gone up with a squad of players that anyone would have found surprising for clubs of their history and stature. I'm talking about clubs that have spent their past in the pub leagues, paying their squad of donkeys not much more than beer money, in some cases actual beer money (or even oats), who are suddenly outbidding Scottish Premier League clubs for players and managers. :£ :£ :£ :£ :£

Just look at that haircut and suit. I think he managed to have some kind of falling out with Wrexham a few weeks ago. Does co-comms on their stream as well which is funny (was actually pretty decent tbf).

There's a Harry Enfield clip I'd like to respond to that picture with but I can't remember the character name.

I've said this many times before and I'll say it again. Three up three down NOW. Like ASAP please.

It's laughable really that only the league winners get auto promotion while those sides that finish runners up - and bear in mind that sometimes they only miss out on the title on the final day of the season - only get a play off spot. Wtf is this, the Scottish Highland league?

You sure you’re not getting mixed up with The Fast Show?

PLC is an EU regulatory status that was imposed on many British companies, replacing their previous Ltd status in UK law. Now that we're out, I dare say the current PLC status of all British companies will fall away and revert back to Ltd, when we get around to it, anyway. :£
