With you on that. Third or eighth for me, I really don’t want the playoffs again.
Antony I could not agree more particularly if we ended up playing the Franchise either in the semifinals or finals. Knocking them out would be the best feeling in the world but losing the worst. Prefer to avoid any chance of the latter so no thanks.

Wow, I'm glad the manager and players don't share this attitude. I mean, we might as well just resign from the league if we're not going to bother trying to achieve the most out of a season (even if that means competing in the play-offs).

Football is full of ups and downs, good days and bad days. Sure, we could get knocked out in our pursuit for promotion (don't really get this fixation on MK Dons), but it's the excitement and nerves surrounding this uncertainty that makes it worthwhile attending the games.

Nah, let's just finish in 8th place and bring on the close season... :S

Well duh. Being a supporter I am allowed any attitude I fancy, however I am not being paid to win football matches so of course the players and manager shouldn't think the same as supporters.

I’m very rapidly hating the playoffs.
Me too. An artificial commercial construct where even the Wembley factor is diluted to the extent where going to a half empty (and worse) stadium means very little now. Ironic considering having never seen us play at the original stadium, how much that first visit meant.

So if we don't end up in the top 3, you'd prefer us to finish outside the play-offs
No!! I would not...the 1 in 4 chance to win promotion still gives us hope and something I’d never say no to no matter how many disappointments we’ve had in the past....I’d love to see us take on MK Dons in the final rather than sit at home and watch a club like FGR have the opportunity to win promotion instead of us.
