Talking things crazy! If the latest tweet regarding the announcement of the league allocations is accurate, it only goes to under-score the complete disrgeard the FA have for interested parties. Underpinned by commercialism and a business-like attitude these decisions only re-iterate how knee jerk reactionary they are and how their entire existance is one of self-promotion. Why the constant desire to revolutionise everything?
I recall the season of three points for an away win, 2 for a home win. That was fun. When a few years back they created a 46 game league - I proposed, on this very board, tongue in cheek, it would last about two years - It lasted two years!
With regards to their notion of a perfect pyramid - I propose the only way they could appreciate a perfect pyramid is if they all messed off on holiday to Giza!
We live in hope!
Automatic promotion/relegation with the Football League came into being when I watched Conference football. It made life almost impossible for non-league sides as many ex-league stayed full-time. Often in an abject state, they re-juvenated - It did many, (the expection being Newport County), the world of good. My take on the pyramid would split the National League, North/South. Contentous perhaps, but a league game between Dover and Gateshead is the very thing I thought non-league football was trying to eradicate. In reality, the authorities probably see the top league in a Premier League guise whilst I maintain the likes of Alfreton Town and the like being able to compete is radically diminished, The footballing considerations are left out of the equations because money talks. I think its making life harder.
