New National League playoff proposals...

I bet Paul Cox has just got an erection :lol:

Not sure the idea is good from a League 2 perspective as it potentially gives tin pot poorly supported clubs a chance of nicking a promotion.
Had we still been in the hell hole though, we'd obviously love the idea.

I'd assume 2nd and 3rd place would play their one off games at home.
Effectively you would expect these teams to be the bigger fish in the Conference, playing at home against smaller clubs who triumphed in their 4th V 7th and 5th V 6th games.
The pressure on the bigger clubs to win at home against minnows would be bigger than over two legs, so it wouldn't surprise me to see smaller clubs getting results on the counter away from home in this format.

Sounds like a good idea to me. The second and third sides will get a deserved advantage, so it's less of a lottery. And there's more interest for the mid-table clubs who just might get lucky.

Sounds like an extended version of the 1 legged winner takes all that steps 7 and below use. I guess it gives a few teams something to play for not sure its really any fairer than whats in place now either.

It is basically extending the potential promotion finishes to 7 like the pro leagues.

So the top 7 could be promoted rather than the top 5.

Only league 2 is 7, championship and league 1 are top 6.

I always liked the old format of 1 team from the league above (team finishing just above relegation zone) and then 3 teams just below the promotion slots in their respective league getting into the play offs !!
Effectively meaning one team is in the play offs trying to stay in their league whilst 3 others are trying to get promoted into it
