well I wonder what the odds were on both games being 5-5 on aggregate after 94 minutes, and then being 6-5 a minute later and finishing that way? Quite astonishing and truly unbelievable entertainment.

Mind you given that Steve Evans is STILL the favourite for the Swindon job on Skybet, the odds wouldn't make any sense anyway.

I watched the Luton game and would not have called Blackpool winning it halfway through the second half. A little bit of justice for Hylton's dive for the penalty I think.

Absolutely brilliant matches to watch. I'd got them both on at the same time & couldn't take my eyes off the screen. So proud to be a fan of a league two club after that. Well done to all four teams for showing the other 8 teams how it's done

Really surprised to see blackpool in the final to be honest, with their owner and all that many tipped them to go down again but Bowyer has done a good job there

Agree with the above, 4 great games producing 22 goals. Puts the Championship to shame with only 5 goals over 4 games. It was like 2 bantamweights going toe to toe while the cruiserweights are cautiously circling each other not willing to throw a punch

Does this result mean that Luton go straight into the group stages for the champions league? Asking for Ollie :lol:

I'm hearing that a lot of Blackpool fans will be sticking to their guns and not attending Wembley in protest at the owners. Any money that can go into the pocket of the owner is money they won't spend. Given Exeter's poor following, it could be a very low attendance at Wembley.

I thought Blackpool were one of the better teams to visit the mill.

If you want any evidence to show that L2 is the most entertaining league, last nights play offs is it!!!

Hope Exeter go up.

Gary Bowyer has worked a miracle at Blackpool, fair play to him.

You could be referring to me Andy, so I feel entitled to say, having watched the dive myself, I now don't want him here either!

Don't think Steve Evans would agree after their celebratory antics at the Mill, when Reuben Reids last minute dive puts any tumble Danny Hylton takes in the box to shame.

For me, I would have preferred Luton to go up....we want the bigger threats ou the way for next season and Donny, Plymouth, Pompey and Luton would have been the big 4.

I don't like Exeter either, Reuben Reid's antics that day were appalling. At the station afterwards we had to contend with Exeter fans crowing about their fabulous team, it was very hard to contain myself! Their last minute goals have got them to Wembley.

I was very impressed when we played them at home , they looked better than some of the other top six
