We're all gutted but there are at least a few positives to being in the National League next season.

1. More or less guaranteed to be at the right end of the table. Every season so far we have been in or close to the promotion picture. It's far from certain that would be the case in League 2, we might have been eyeing the bottom rather than the top,
2. We're one of the biggest teams with the biggest fan base and we can rightfully look down upon the "pub" sides. We'd be about midtable attendance wise in League 2. Our swagger would have to be toned down quite a bit.
3. We can genuinely expect to win virtually every match home and away.
4. Two derbies with Lincoln. No derbies in League 2.
5. Lots more TV games. BT Sport covers the division well. League 2 TV coverage is very sporadic.
6. Two realistic chances of going to Wembley. The JPT and L2 play-offs would have been a big ask
7. We can keep singing the ."I want to be in the Football League" song.

I'm grasping at straws a bit but can anyone think of any more?

Ticket prices unlikely to change...

We can continue having the best support in the League & the best following- if we'd gone up another club might try to steal our crown.

The orange Vanarama logo brings a little bit of colour to the world.


Nah, I'm all out now!!!

Already looking forward to the visit to borehamwood. One of the most beautiful towns in England and populated by very pleasant, well educated, polite and welcoming chavs.

We've still got a club to go and watch. Other towns aren't so fortunate these days.
