Let's keep it all as it is shall we, and forget this L2 South and L2 North nonsense. I support the U's so it could be that one year we're in the South the next in the North, which is all well and good as I would get to watch a wide variety of other sides. But imagine supporting a definitely Northern side like Carlisle or a deffo Southern side like Exeter and always watching your lot playing the same sides over and over again.
Some fans seem sure that dividing the league into two sections will mean bigger gates as there'll be more local/ish games, which is true enough I guess. Then again, I reckon any increase in gates will only be for a couple of years before people get tired of playing the same sides. Case in point was when we had Luton down with us in the connie (it was the closest thing to a proper derby game at the time) - loads of interest in the first couple of years until it got pretty boring pretty quickly and it was seen as just another game and nothing else.
One sure way to determine if some town is truly northern is by having a little chat with a local chap. If you understand every single word that he utters then he ain't no northener. OTOH, if you find yourself thinking 'wtf is this strange man going on about?' every nano second then yes, his place of birth is indeed a proper Northern town.
Personally want Vale (bored of going there compared to other local aways) and Notts (bogey team) down but wouldn't mind Yeovil (other bogey team) down as well. Shame Macc looked to have fucked it ever since their last minute heroics against us.
I get you but you lot were up against MK, who IMO will make the top 3. They just had a little blip a few weeks back, just like all sides will have at some point or other.
There are no free hits in L2 and esp at this late stage of the season but a game against MK is the closest thing to it. I think your next two games are Exeter at home (and they are in poor form atm) and then away at Yeovil, so you're still in with a chance, esp if you can beat the latter side.
Mahussive win today both points wise and mentally.
With GD effectively 8 clear but today means nothing if we go and lose to Yeovil Tuesday. Win that and the bottom two fail to win and we probably leave it a three way battle between the bottom two and Yeovil.
10/11 points with GD with 9 to go will be fairly healthy for us as your looking at the bottom two winning 4 games to over haul us without picking up a point in any of ours.
