hate to be a killjoy but we would have to buck the historical trend if we were to go up as champs in the season following a play off defeat.
the only team to have done it in the 12 years of play off finals were Exeter about 10 years ago.generally the record is appalling;very few even get back into the play offs the next year.
still, brizzell have bucked the trend of bouncing straight back up so let's hope we follow their lead

Wrexham never recovered from the season they finished second with 98 points. A total which would win the league outright most seasons. Big job to do this summer because the only way we can improve next year is to go all the way.

Every year we have done a little better than the year before. if that trend continues it's hard to imagine how we could fail to go up (I suppose we could lose something like 6-5 on pens)

I'd argue that 2012/13 was better than 2013/14.

Stats are stats and are there to be broken.Think with this club and the big fan base in this league and a ever improving manager Iam hopeful of coming back stronger and better for next season

I think the league will be weaker next year too.

Barnet were always going to be a threat because of their geographical base and the fact that Allen is a very, very good manager at this level.

Bristol Rovers are a monster club at this level.  

Tranmere and Cheltenham, especially Tranmere, are in a rude awakening next year.  Don't see either club challenging.  Eastleigh and Forest Green will throw money at it again but no doubt at old timers.

Bucking a ten year trend just like Bristol did in going straight back up. Have some bloody belief!

Like Rick says these things are there to be broken. Also, how relevant is the form of different groups of players in different seasons to how we do in 2015/16?

We finished fourth both years,but at least drew the first play-off game in 2013/14 and didn't get the refereeing decisions in the second whereas in 2012/13 we lost them both without being able to blame the ref.
