from what I've seen, the top half of the Conference is better than the bottom half of League Two. Teams promoted in recent years from the Conference have tended to do well in League Two (exception AFC Wimbledon), and several have been promoted straight through.

Glad I make you laugh,where do you get this self confessed non-attender from, I've missed a few games this season due to work but not many at all. Were you at Gateshead away, Telford away, Camebridge away, Ebbsfleet away?? Guess not so shut the <removed by Martin> up and get to bed it's school in the morning.

Nidge - please stop masked swearing and personal abuse. The same goes to other users. Thanks

Hmm...I think that the better Conference sides are much superior now. See how Luton fared in the Cup against sides from the Championship and Premier League...and they aren't even a good Conference side. The Stags matched Liverpool over much of their game too, only struggling against a couple of players who are on-form world-class footballers. And we weren't on great form at the time. There's no gap any more.

Difference is, non-league teams will always be motivated for a glamour cup tie, whereas pampered Premier League players aren't up for a cold, rainy Sunday in Mansfield. :lol: I think games like Swansea-Bradford showed that there is still a big gap to the top, when the big team is up for the game. I don't think there's much between top of Conference/bottom of League 2 though.
