Re: My Pre-Playoff Rant
The current system clearly does not give enough advantage to reward the team finishing second.
I'm a Chesham fan and have posted this suggestion for a review of the playoff system on their forum
I have also written to the FA (Greg Dyke) suggesting it is time to review Play-off system. Bet the idea goes nowhere !
I'd like to see the Southern League pioneer a fairer play-off system as follows :
5th plays 4th.
Winners of that tie play 3rd.
Winners of that tie play 2nd.
Two points to make :
1. This would involve the same number of play-off matches
2. Each play-off team would face a challenge related to it's final league position
- i.e there would be a benefit in finishing 2nd in terms of fatigue and having to play only one play-off game.
The teams finishing 5th & 4th would have a tougher route to promotion via three games. 3rd team still face two games etc.
There would be the added benefit that the 2nd & 3rd teams could plan for and promote their games properly, knowing they will be involved.
Do others have views ?
