Not sure what's been worse - Chris Bush defending or Hartlepool playing goal music.

And ‘Two Little Boys’ before the game. One step away from ‘Do You Wanna Be in My Gang’?

Sloppy at the back, light up front.... This isn't the Bromley we've seen in the last month of the season....

Bromley are like us last season. Snuck in the play offs but not really good enough. Take Cheek out and there bang average.

The L2 final was underwhelming
Yeah true, I think it's kind of unreasonable to expect every game to be quality though, the L2 semis were all decent games, I thought. The second leg of Barnsley/Swansea was crap too.

In hindsight it’s a bit of a shame Wrexham fucked it, they’d be making much more of a game of this.

Playoffs have been great all across the board this season, I thought League 1 was the best but The Conference have started with a bang with this and Notts v Chesterfield.
Careful, Fylde's fan will be asking you if you've ever seen a play off game before..... :ds:

Stockport v Hartlepool next Sunday at 12pm followed by England v Croatia at 2pm.

One for the ages that.

"Snuck in the play-offs"? We were barely out of the top 7 all fucking season! Clown.

don't you dare have a go at a Chesterfield fan, it upsets them.
English Red sits there in his Chesterfield pyjamas furiously wanking himself into a stupor over pictures of a crooked spire whilst he sends messages like this, I'm certain

The best team in the group stages rarely wins the World Cup.

Just sayin’.

Not sure I’ve seen a team completely freeze in the play-offs like this since someone (Morecambe maybe?) lost a first leg to Dagenham 6-0 the year we won League Two about ten years ago. They’ve been absolutely appalling.

Be a lot of interest in Armstrong in pre-season I imagine. Anything been said about his future by Salford? Would like to see him at ML - we’ve missed a proper poacher this season

So reliant on him. They could struggle next season if he leaves.

Got a year left at Salford, already said he’d love to come back here but he’ll be on a proper wedge there.

He’s someone who would struggle without a partner which would probably put some teams off him.

Fuckin ell you’ve got a good memory, apparently our chairman got a parking ticket in 1953 as well.

Wish that was true, can hardly remember what happened last week.

The point being, it wasn't quite good against evil like the guy(?) was implying.

Oates is a good player but he’s playing up against Chris Bush today FFS, I’d look good upfront against him

Our first season we were down here Fleetwood had Nathan Pond out injured for the playoffs and played Sean Gregan and Steve McNulty at CB and got utterly pummelled. Think it was about 8-0 on aggregate. That's probably the last time I saw a team capitulate like this in the playoffs.

That Dagenham team you're on about was decent, used to hate playing them around that kind of time.

I just think this obsession of yours, whilst flattering, is getting a bit unhealthy fella and you should think about seeing somebody!

Great for Hartlepool this but even greater news for them is the extra Brotherhood League bonus points coming their way for guaranteeing a Brother has to win the play offs.
Bravo lads. :bravo:

I'm hoping for Torquay. 1 because they finished 2nd so deserve it.
2. Because they'll bring the least supporters next season.

In related news, Pool look very good here. You wonder how important home advantage is for them but I'm not sure who can stop them playing like this

Its usually ourselves it’s why we only finished 4th this season despite playing like this for most the year.

We've been more direct than usual today but that's to do with having Odusina at the back who's iffy on the ball and spotting a pretty glaring weakness in Bromley's backline.

Armstrong and Oates are the best strike partnership in the league. I believe Oates has another year but I might be wrong.
