    York City were promoted back to the Football League. A happy conclusion to the Conference play-offs in my book, because I might be able to twist Mr. Exile into going to see them play terribly again next year.

    Hopefully, Sheffield United can punish Huddersfield for their treachery towards Lee Clark in the League One play-off final this weekend.

    :laugh:

    It sounds like a slang phrase for anal sex rather than a football stadium.

    Bootham Crescent it shall remain in my mind.

    Quite pleased in a way with the result being a Watford fan although Luton were dealt with very harshly by the Football League.

    Crewe take on Cheltenham Town in the League Two playoff and look set to lose another of their academy products Nick Powell to Manchester United.

    In more disturbing news Luke McCormick who murdered two young boys through his own actions as a drunk driver is training with Swindon Town. :shakehead

    I think the moral state of football is so low that if a footballer who murdered was a very good player and had served the terms of what are generally pathetically lenient sentences, they would sign him up.

    I've always liked Yeovil Town FC. They are a very small, home grown team and I first learned of them years ago and followed them ever since. Not as a hardcore supporter or anything, but I always loved their crest, their motto (Achieve Through Unity) and the little town they are from is really nice. I've spent a good deal of time just going through it on Google Maps.

    The fact that they are so low budget and only have about 13 active players really makes me root for them in many ways.

    Have to feel for Steve Simonsen, had a great match and came down to him missing the penalty to lose

    Crewe got promoted.

    I automatically assume that this is a good thing, because of their tradition for playing constructive football. I don't know whether that still applies, although Takharov's post hints that they remain decent at developing young players.

    At the very least, they went up at the expense of a southern team.

    Taking their time wasting the money though! Or the plan is to play Lascelles as the lone defender in a revolutionary 1-4-5 formation.

    Couldn't hold it unfortunately, but a draw and a point with this squad isn't bad at all!

    PUP PPU!
