In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Quite looking forward to watching the Newport v Morecambe game tomorrow(in the All Stars Bar)

Not fussed about Play Off Finals unless the Grecians are involved.This one looks interesting.
Morecambe play it around well according to reports.
Newport are a bit more direct,unsurprisingly given their pitch.Will they change style on the good Wembley surface ?

Ellison v Adams as the icing on the cake.😁

Good point, not sure what it has to do with the chip-nickers though...

Edit: fair enough saw the mea culpa.

These type of playoff setups are similar to the end of season playoffs in AFL (Aussie Rules Football) in that lower teams can win their way up and higher placed teams sit out a round. It's supposed to favour the higher teams who exert themselves less but you do often see a hungry team sneak in on a hot streak and proceed to knock off everyone including the out of practice 'seeded' team. A great Australian Example is the Western Bulldogs team who became Premiers through the end of season playoffs despite finishing 7th, back in 2016 - Not that I imagine Tottenham would mind one bit if the same happened in the Premier League. Torquay in this scenario might mentally feel they were already up at points in the season and have absolutely everything to lose. Let's just say I'm glad the playoffs weren't set up like this in 2008.

Big day for the Gulls tomorrow, is it on the TV anywhere (preferably where you don't have to pay), just in case the weather is as miserable tomorrow as it is today (and to escape household chores)

My these National League playoffs are a long drawn out affair. We’ll be nearly into next season when they’re over , well not quite , but it seems like it.
