If this is the new ownership then they've already lost a bit of my trust. It should have been communicated yesterday. They need to step up and explain or dismiss this as soon as possible.Huge straw clutching if ever I saw it, we were the worst team in the league for big chunks of this season and even though we’ve been much better of late we still fully deserve relegation, staggered that we’re trying this.

Oh right, cheers. Where is this from?Jason Stockwood already has, I posted it in the Southend thread.
"The legal conversation exploring the 'integrity' of the season has been ongoing with the EFL since the National League made its decision not to relegate clubs several weeks ago.
"As a club we will obviously follow the process to its logical conclusion but ultimately it is a decision for all EFL clubs to decide on collectively."
Oh right, cheers. Where is this from?
So. it's JS and AP that have gone ahead with this? Not Fenty?
There might have been a Pythonesque phone call with Jason Stockwood saying to EFL - "I must insist that we are relegated...no you have to continue with the appeal...we don't want to, we are bringing a new culture of openness and integrity, we must be relegated...sorry can't do it, your staying up until the outcome of the appeal..."In the telegraph, no I read it as the EFL are the ones that have been looking at it since the NL decided on no relegation, now it's us and Southend seeing it till it's finish with the EFL meeting next week as we are the ones affected
Three times now actually; most times kicked out the League and most promoted and relegated club.SHAYMEN, CHESTER, DARLINGTON, TORQUAY, HEREFORD, LINCOLN, ALDERSHOT, YORK- GRIMSBY now joining the elites of shitness, the truly shit clubs who have been relegated twice from the Football League. THAT takes a special level of shitness that only those clubs absolutely dedicated to being shit can achieve.
So you got the Haddocks then, must have been some mix-up - the thousands of "haddocks" at Wimbledon were in fact inflatable Rainbow Trout. I had a fag-burnt wilting shark.For reasons that have never been satisfactorily explained to me, WE were waving Harry Haddock inflatables during our cup run in 1988. When I say "cup run" remember this is a relative term.
??? I don't think you've grasped the concept under discussion. Being shite is a source of great pride, for the truly shite- YOU ought to know that- so it's not "harsh", it's a blessing.Apparently you were relegated back into the Midlands league in 1910. So technically this is your third time. That was before the league expanded though so a little harsh to count that.
Correct and, harsh or not, it has to be counted. B2TF is right - being shite (but importantly not tinpot), is a source of immense local pride. GTFC - shite, taking it on the chin, but not tinpot and not an asian pay-TV backed franchise...Apparently you were relegated back into the Midlands league in 1910.
