Let's say we get promoted. I must confess it worries me looking at the bottom of L2 that a lot of the clubs there now have only got promoted from our division Mansfield, York, Cambridge, Oxford have all flirted with relegation. The side we have now is vastly better than the one that relegated, but the standard in L2 appears to have gone up in the intervening years. The nightmare scenario would be to get related again into the abyss, but I fear we wouldn't necessrily thrive in L2.

If you offered me the chance of being in any of those 4 clubs current position in a year's time I'd snap your hand off.

Yeah, I imagine they're all distraught about playing teams like Portsmouth, Tranmere and Plymouth when they could be down here playing Dartford, Nuneaton, Eastleigh, Welling etc.

I see you've neglected to mention Luton as well who are 1 point outside the playoffs with 5 games remaining.

The argument can work the other way, Newport are in a play off place, luton flirted with it (we all knew John still's one dimensional play would get figured out by better teams), fleetwood and Crawley both went up, Daggers did and then came down so as well as struggling we could equally do well...

lets get there first then worry about it - There's a lot of football to shape our season yet! I do think that if we go we may well be a solid mid table but look to invest and improve over the next 2 - 3 years. I don't have an issue with being a solid performer in L2 if it gets us on a pathway to better things.


Its hard enough remembering my opinions without remembering my reasons for them!

Having studied the history books over the last couple of minutes, it seems that promoted clubs quite often find themselves playing higher quality teams in their new division.
