Ironically my three nearest teams last season (Nuneaton, Telford and Alfreton) have gone. This leaves the midlands nearly without representation, although at least the annual trip for steam trains, beer, and quality football food is still on at Kidderminster.
If you look at the location of next year's teams it will nearly be a split of the country into North and South. Although the league may be notionally now called 'National',  for many there has never been a better time to regionalise this league. No small team wants to spend so much time and money on travel and there are some long-haul trips in the offing for everyone. I think there is a better case for the fourth and fifth tier leagues to become League 2 North and South, than say three up/three down.

Leave it as it is. Some "smaller" teams have more money that us.

Teams knew what they were getting themselves into when they joined this league. they can't then moan & expect every other club to drop down to their level.

I can see the financial benefit to clubs of having a League 2 North and South.
But League 2 and the Conference Premier are run by completely separate organisations.
Would you expect the conference to surrender the Conference Premier to the football league? Or for the football league to surrender League 2 to the conference?
I can't see how it would happen.

Just been looking at the map of the clubs for next season.

One of the nearer games for us is guiseley, the ground only holds 3,000. Could be interesting.

League 2 north and South with 3 up 3 down? How would that work exactly, there'll still only be 3 coming down for league 1 say, not enough space for 6 teams going up?

My guess would be this game will be a midweek in November to deliberately suppress the potential numbers willing to travel. Most of our nearer away days last year seemed to be midweek. Could be other reasoning behind it but I did think it was odd.

Am not one for north/south divisions, but when you look at the map of teams, there is a huge void from Lincoln to kiddy and across to the London teams. I agree that some teams do become isolated for that reason (barrow, Gateshead etc)



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”
