...that the famous Alexandra may be slumming it in Div4 for 2016/17.
How do you lot feel about your own clubs chances of competing with the Mighty Railwaymen in a league environment?
Having Crewe among your ranks would clearly bring a certain kudos to this division but would you view it as one less promotion spot available for your own side?

Well at least Hartlepool will only have one relegation spot to avoid next season...
You lot've been teetering over that trapdoor more times than I've been to Brunton Park.Which is twice.

I'm about as scared of the prospect of Crewe coming down as I was of the prospect of Yeovil coming down. It'll help the geographic balance of the division at least... Particularly if Accrington go up and York or Hartlepool go down.

The only thing I'm worried about is how we'll cope with all the Crewe fans in town. I fully expect us to give them not only The South Stand but The South Habbin too, and I wouldn't be surprised if they also infiltrate the home ends.

We'll be in The Corona,I'd imagine.

I couldn't bear being a whole division below Accrington.
Fuck me...it's bad enough only being one whole division above them!

We'd only let Crewe down here if they had a hilarious wind-up merchant fan capable of ToP BaNtZ!!!!

On the available evidence, this appears not to be the case.

Ah, the Suburban Derby, how could any football connoisseur not miss those whirlwinds of passion and champagne football.
Yep,the Bucks El Classico.
Or that may have been your encounters with Marlow.

Looking at the clubs in danger of coming down(or already down as in the case of Crewe and Colchester) there aren't any sides any of us timpot L2 sides should fear. And by fear I mean those sides that have big financial backing so they'll expected to bounce straight back. Donnie, Oldham, Blackpool? Nah. Though I hope Chesterfield and Shrews stay up as those two can go up I reckon.

Looking at the Lge2 table today I see 5 big clubs for that league so to aid our prospects next season,should we drop,I'd like as many of those 5 as possible to go up this time.
Unfortunately Cobblers have already accounted for one of those spots.

Pompey, Luton, Oxford, Plymouth and Rovers? Oxford will most likely get second, and 3rd is between Plymouth and Rovers. So at least we'll be getting rid of two big sides. Worst case would be if somehow Stanley go up.

I'm going to get a seat as close to the tunnel as possible, so I can applaud your manager, Dario Grady, for long overdue personalised support for giving the game: Geoff Thomas, Robbie Savage, Seth Johnson, Edson Arantes do Nascimento and the British Rail Class 03 Diesel Locomotive.

#Ray!!
