  • I feel like we are in the midst of a bad soap opera called 'EFL League One - The Vote', where there is only one main plot point, with each episode veering away from resolution, so that it can end on a cheap cliffhanger for next week.
  • @chairboyscentral said: What. A. Hypocrite. https://twitter.com/DMAC102/status/1237988972829249543 Maybe we can all just keep retweeting it back at him?
  • @StrongestTeam said: The sooner certain officials realise the difference between what is unfortunate and what is unfair the better. This sums it up perfectly.
  • Ultimately, we will never know what would have happened, and though BCD would be "on the pitch", it would certainly not equate to an equal season home and away. If people complain about when we got to play Bolton, they would find reasons to complain…
  • He'll blame us for time wasting when the court is adjourned ten minutes late...
  • Ultimately, we do not deserve to get promoted, but (if you will bear with the double negative), we do not NOT deserve to be promoted - all teams in the top eight or so exist in a kind of "shoulda-coulda-woulda" limbo. It's not the best, but if the a…
  • Someone mentioned toys being thrown out of the pram by MacAnthony. Can we all agree to refer to Peterborough's ground as 'The Pram' from now on? That would be superb.
  • I have always quite liked Peterborough, but this shameful episode is going to be hard to forget. It sounds as though Sunderland have been a big driver too.
  • We may not be all Wycombe fans, but I was under the distinct impression we are the cream of the crop. I had to jump though a lot of hoops to get a Gasroom passport!
  • Yes, I find it utterly depressing. There were also only 6 winners in the 20 years from Wimbledon to Portsmouth, and that period included Everton and Tottenham only winning it once each.
  • I realized something about the FA Cup yesterday: In the 15 years between 1965-1980, there were 13 different winners. In the 40 years between 1980 and now, there have been 11 different winners. Only Coventry, Wimbledon, Portsmouth and Wigan ha…
  • Yes, if any of Bolton, Southend, Tranmere or Bristol Rovers vote to end it, we should have the numbers.
  • Good points - we only need one, and there are a few in there who could change. Fleetwood, Oxford or Portsmouth could well defect. I would not even put it past Tranmere to do the decent thing by other small clubs. I am also hoping that Bristol Rovers…
  • I think the vote may be close. However, I think there is a better chance we get a single vote from the latter two groups than lose one from our 11. End the season: (11) Coventry, Rotherham, Wycombe, Blackpool, Lincoln, MK Dons, Rochdale, Shrewsbu…
  • For some reason this is making me think of uplifting slogans, like: "The Joy Of Kent Is Joy For All The World" and "Have You Made A Kentish Person Smile Today?"
  • @Right_in_the_Middle said: Saw Peterborough trending on Twitter so wondered what new ways they'd found to seal promotion Turns out it's because McDonald's are reopening six drive throughs in the town. I think McDonalds were going t…
  • It definitely looks as though Colchester and Plymouth are not as hated as the other three, who all had fairly similar scores. So I would pose the question: who is our biggest rival? Can Colchester even lay claim to that, if they are not as hated …
  • At least we would have the comedy of Darragh suing the Premier League for $15 billion, using the following legal logic: * The Premier League failing to finish cost L1 the chance to promote teams. * Peterborough were clearly going to win an 8 t…
  • That's not a bad shout, @bookertease! Mind you, one could argue that inverting the results would give a pretty good idea, though obviously not exactly the same as voting each round...
  • The only consolation is that only one of the Gang of Six can go up, at most. I would certainly be supporting Doncaster and Gillingham after Wycombe, though - it would be a special kind of hilarious if either a) we won the playoffs anyway, or b) in t…
  • @ForeverBlue - I am just going to leave it open. I think the most votes any round of the cup received was 63 or so. If we get to that point, we will probably know the rankings!
  • One other thing: If they cannot complete the playoffs after the first round, but we were knocked out, do we go up in 3rd? That is a problem they may not have thought through.
  • On the one hand, I understand the problem with how bunched all the teams were. But at some point, you have to say "tough luck" to somebody. I don't hate it quite as much as everyone else though, as there was not that much to choose between all of th…
  • Sounds good - I'll do it now!
  • That could be interesting! Would it be better to ask which club everyone hates the least? It might tell us more about the relative rankings than asking which one is hated the most.
  • Hey @Lloyd2084 - cheers, and those are good ideas! I came along much more recently though, so I am probably not the right man for the job in terms of anything that requires going way back! If anyone else is willing to organize it, I am sure it would…
  • I keep saying it, but I wish we had just beaten Doncaster. That would have put us 2nd on PPG. Shoulda coulda woulda...
  • It would be so hilarious if us or Doncaster won an eight team tournament, though. I think the fairest is four team playoff, if possible. The Peterborough chairman is verging on the obscene. I am half expecting him to say Wycombe started the pa…
  • If Peterborough were leading the league, he would have PPG tattooed on his buttocks as he jumped through a hoop of fire onto a mat saying "End The Season Now".
  • @bookertease said: On the subject of players, isn’t it time we had a ‘player of the season’ thread? And in these strange times how does anyone feel about doing it in the style of the ‘you choose cup’ to help get us through the next couple …
