Looks like Leyton Orient will officially be promoted back into league 2 today and Salford will have to go through the lottery of the play-offs...haha.

Haven't they introduce a new play -off format this season for that league. I'm sure I read somewhere that the teams finishing 2nd and 3rd are automatically in the play-offs with the teams finishing 4th to 7th involved in play-offs to determine who is in the play-offs!!

Correct. 4th v 7th and 5th v 6th to determine who goes through to the play-off semis versus 2nd and 3rd.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

While I did feel sorry for the Orient fans who were literally sold down the river after Hearn sold the club, the current situation there is much the same as Salford. Money talks, big bucks in the club these days from owners with fat wallets as we shall see next season. They will aim to do a Lincoln or even a Luton.

Isn't that what we want for GTFC? I thought we wanted an owner who was prepared to pour money into the club and not want it back, like a football philanthropist.

That's a complete misrepresentation of what people are saying. I want a club which lives within its means but is proactive in trying to increase those means by being progressive and innovative. I also don't want to see those 'means' being drained to pay a debt largely created by poor running of the club and ongoing failure.

No it isn't. Look at Crawley who were doing the same thing as Orient in our first season in the Conference. When the original owner died and the money dried up they had to restructure dramatically. As Rodley says, we don't want a Playstation team, we want a grown up solution that can adapt with the times and grow the club as a proper business.

The new play-off is a better and fairer format as it rewards teams far more for finishing in higher league positions.  Also, there is more opportunity to finish in a play-off position.

Yes please. Someone who invests in the club by way of buying shares and not putting a noose around its neck with directors loans. If they've got 30 mill for a new stadium and a few mill to upgrade our training ground, not want it back and let us grow sustainably from there, that would be perfect.
