Right.... :shock:

right? Dead right. I'd rather have been there, but couldn't go.

The very fact that you are looking down your nose at it tells a story. That is not intended as a dig at you, but is a dig at the attitude held by so many. Don't even get me started on what is wrong with the Premier League.

I'm sorry, there's no snobbery involved, if you've spent the past two nights watching Plymouth vs Scunthorpe, and Aldershot vs Ebbsfleet, rather than the two Champions League ties, then you've missed out. They've been incredible games.

Bradford PA and Chorley join Harrogate and Brackley in the semi finals

So I think none of these have ever been in the Conference/National before, obviously the old Bradford Park Avenue were in the Football League but went bust. I'd have liked to have seen Stockport back in the Conference, they've been at this level too long now :( My localish team is Harrogate, off to watch them play Chorley on sunday on their 3g pitch.

I watched Brackley v Stockport earlier in the season. Great game. Great following by Stockport at Brackley, and I agree with you, I'd like to see Stockport heading back up the leagues. Brackley are a pretty good side.

Watched a bit of both games. Preferred the Shots v Fleet game...I find it equally astonishing that people seem to enjoy the 'Champions' league so much, joke competition.

Not in the slightest bit interested in Premier League or Champions League. Night before while Real-Bayern was on, I watched Scunthorpe-Plymouth.


Same here, you could see why Plymouth were one of the lowest away scoring sides in League One.
We might win against Accrington next time, if we ever play them again.

The old Bradford Park Avenue club were voted out of the FL after the 1969-70 season and were replaced by Cambridge United after finishing rock-bottom for three consecutive seasons. They did not win a League game outside Bradford after March 18, 1967, when they beat Aldershot away 2-1. They did win an away game in 1967-68, but that was at Bradford City to a 2-1 scoreline as well. The old Bradford PA, who only faced the Stags nine times, folded after the 1973-74 season.

half time Boreham Wood 2-1 AFC Fylde.

Super first half. Two poor defences. Two good attacks.

Second half promises more of the same.

One ex-Stag on each side.

They were both bit part players. Neither any great shakes if I remember.
However they were no doubt honoured to don the Famous Amber shirt.

Tranmere will never have a better chance of going up. They've apparently already sold over 3,000 season tickets on Early Bird, we haven't announced that 10 year olds tickets will cost a kidney yet.

full time Boreham Wood 2-1 AFC Fylde.

Boreham Wood just about deserved it and missed a penalty in the second half.

Very good game indeed and thoroughly enjoyable between two good attacking sides.
Anyway after watching that crap, I'd better turn over to watch the Europa League which we should have been watching anyway ;)
