An interesting point was made about an ineligible player in a cup-tie and FIFA/UEFA’s answer to award a 3–0 scoreline (the FA, sensibly, just award the tie – as a statistician I would want to know who was credited with the goals!).

I know this is raking over an old wound – still a very deep one – but if Hendon had been awarded a 3–0 win over Enfield on 10 January 2015, we would have still finished runners-up to Maidstone, albeit on goal difference, 13 worse off. Now if it was 1964, I would have fancied our chances at a neutral venue in a playoff with the full squad available.
