Default Re: Team who finish 7th qualify for the play offs next year, apparently

gives lower clubs in table a chance and lengthens the season for Vanarama
but only 2 of 7 clubs go up

Better would be 1st 2nd go up automatic
6th play 3rd over 2 legs
5th play 4th over 2 legs
winner of above semis play in a wembley final

Perfect. Agreed.

Can't see league teams agreeing to an extra promotion place unfortunately. A compromise could be
3rd v 6th
4th v 5th
Winners of each tie play each other then the winner of that plays 3rd from bottom in league 2 at Wembley, winner plays in L2 the following season & loser in National league. They may just agree if they get another shot at staying up.

The league will never vote for 3 relegation spots; 2 up, 2 down it is and so it shall remain. The possibility of increasing the number of teams in the play offs is an attempt to keep the interest in more of the late season games. Partly a cynical attempt to keep the viewing figures up for games towards the fag end of the season. But could be a positive for mid table teams who might be enticed to push for the results that may nick the last play off spot. The further down the league that the possibility of making the play offs goes the greater the chances of more teams, and so more games, having a some interest after Easter. Would we have given up at 50 points if there had been another play off spot?

Interesting reading the discussions on extending the number of teams in the play offs

In Australia in all of our top sports (Soccer, Rugby League and Aussie Rules) its never first past the post. We have play offs which differ by sport, but it ends up with a Grand Final to decide the winner.

This year Sydney FC won the Soccer "A league" by 17 points but had to revert to a penalty shoot out to claim the title. (41,500 at game).

Last year in the Aussie Rules Competition the eventual winner finished 8th prior to the "semi finals". This competition has average crowds higher than the English Premier League...so it obviously doesn't detract from attendances.
There has never been less than 90,000 at a Final.

Can see an argument for first past the post tho' and it is regularly brought up in all our major sports...but you can't have a competition without a Grand Final now can you!

Because some of us care about the good of the game as well as our own club. The second place team missing out on promotion to the fifth is galling. To miss out to the seventh is approaching random.

Ive always believed the play offs should incorporate the bottom team(s) of the higher league. As we are unlikely to get agreement to three up from the division perhaps a compromise could be reached.

1st - Automatic promotion
2nd - Automatic promotion
3rd-6th - Into playoffs with team winning getting into final with team finishing third from bottom in League 2 who get a bye to Wembley final.
