Title: Play-off games that are of secondary importance
Post by: Mr Stevens on Sunday, May 8, 2022, 18:41:14
25 minutes left and Wycombe have a one howl advantage. Total difference in styles but it's exciting, more so with the presence of Twine and KKH.

I dislike most things about MKD but the ground is pretty good.

So if Dean Lewington plays next season he could well break JTs record for most league games for one club.

Currently sat on 739 for MK (+ another 29 for Wimbledon)

If he manages 32 games for Dongs next season he beats Trollope's record, no idea if he will but seems to have played pretty much every league game this season.

Surprised the media haven't picked up on this, albeit its 'only lg 1.

Öbut heís still made 739 league appearances for Franchise which is still within a season of the John Trollope record for league appearances for one club.
I didnít count his Wimbledon appearance in those 739. Thatís an addition 29 league appearances on top of the 739 league appearances for Franchise.

Lewington is a fucking arsehole and as unlikeable as the club he plays for.

Glad they didn't qualify for Wembley although it would have been nice to see their 10k fanbase lose int he final. Still, twine can now leave for a better, bigger club in a higher like Rotherham :D.

He will probably go on to be their manager at some point.

I think we're at slight crossed purposes here.  I thought Trollope's record is for only ever playing for one club, so the most appearances for his one and only club, rather than just most appearances for one club, if that makes sense.  That was the only reason I mentioned the different club thing.

Also a perfect place to send several of the youngsters to get experience at a better level too.

Under 21s don't count towards the long-term loan limit, under the Vanarama loan rules those count as youth/training loans opening the door for loans of players like Dabre and Minturn as well as I would send Harry Parsons out for a season to get competitive games under his belt ala Twine a couple of years ago.

Well under Macari we had back to back promotions and then got into the play offs in our 2nd season in the Championship (Div 2 at the time).

Under PdC we were in a great position to win promotion to the Championship in his 2nd season right to the point that Jed came in to spoil things.

Its definately possible on the crest of a wave back to back promotions.

Under PdC we were in a great position to win promotion to the Championship in his 2nd season right to the point that Jed came in to spoil things.

I know this is the great myth that's built up around that season because some fans hero worshiped the man but it doesn't match the facts.

1. PDC's stated reason for leaving in his press statements on resigning were the failure of the FA to approve the takeover of the club and 3 loan deals.
2. But we all know he set the deadline for the takeover as a means to escape when the existing board cut off his transfer money supply and sold Matt Ritchie in the January window to fund the club whilst the takeover as transacted.
3. Anyone with any degree of cynicism suspects that there might have already been quiet discussions with his agent about the Sunderland job. Because there's no way you sack MO'N on 30th March and negotiate with that shark in less than 24 hrs to appoint PDC the next day.
4. At no point under PDC were we in an automatic promotion spot. Our results all season were mixed. Our average league position under him was 6th. Final finishing position 6th

I know that the run of brilliant results over Xmas and NY made it feel like we had the momentum, but that hadn't been sustained. We'd gone from a run of games scoring 16 goals in 4 without reply to losing Ritchie and a run of 4 scoring only 2 from open play and 1 pen.

I can remember people moaning about some of the results in the run in but a lot of the sides we did badly against  under MacDonald we'd not got results against under PDC earlier in the season.

I look at the way those seasons went and can't help but feel that the way PDC 'managed' the team, the scatter gun approach to transfers, the
Approach to man management, all of which cost a bloody fortune, and the way Fitton allowed him to squander resources probably helped push Black to call it quits.

Tried the same thing at Sunderland in his first closed season; signed 13 players, immediately fell out with half of them, wanted shot of a couple by the time the season started, and they got rid 5 games into the season and he's never worked again.

Never in an automatic spot granted but we were third with 55 points when he left a massive 1 point behind the top two.

Then after the Tranmere game which heíd prepared for, picked the team etc we were top.


Sure, his management & spending did us no favours in the long term - but you canít tell me that side wasnít challenging for promotion, we were going up as Champions !!!

I think too many people are thinking about the final. I am worried that Port Vale are the toughest opponents in the semis. I have a bad feeling about the tie.

I'm not saying we weren't. Challenging, we clearly were. I'm just casting doubt on your final statement. If fans of any other club claimed they were nailed on for winning the league in a season when they had been top for a massive  four days, and were only in the auto spots for a couple of weeks in total, we'd laugh at how delusional they were.

I'm also suggesting we probably missed Ritchie more than PDC, as the goals cried up from his departure and as I said we suddenly went from winning games 4 and 5 nil to a run of low scoring draws and wins by the odd goal.

And stop blaming Jed and the new owners for PDC leaving. He left because Black pulled the plug on the blank check supply for signings and sold his best player at a key stage of the season. Blame Black, or PDC himself for stropping off when he didn't get his own way. If Macari or Hoddle or Ardiles had done the same when a key player was flogged on deadline day we'd never have got to the PL.

Although Sheff Utd won that game and lost to Wolves in the final.

IF we get to the final and Mansfield get through, that OíToole is a headless chicken (canít recall how he played against us). He would certainly lose his rag if anyone was getting the better of him. He has just got a yellow in this game and can see him getting a 2nd so he might not even make it there!

But he ran onto it, covering the ball for the other Mansfield player, and causing the Northampton defence to stutter as they tried to work out if it was as blatantly offside as it looked or not. Definitely interfering with play, whether he physically touched it or not.

And that foul on eppiah was a blatant red!

Northampton had no real answer to Mansfield's defence mind. Couple of half decent attempts but no real 'unlock', and all Mansfield needed to do was hold, which they did.

Tonight - and the Championship playoff last night too - I thought the referees either ignored fouls or treated the dirtier sides (Sheff U and Stags) lightly.

Not so different to Sunday.

I'd hope for some protection but if it's not forthcoming, we're going to have to be prepared to scrap hard ourselves and IMPOSE our own game.

Ollie must have been about 19 or 20 during that season in the conference. It might have been the first season he got any real games under his belt; he can hardly have been said to have "brought them up". Didn't notice he'd pitched up at Mansfield. Thought he'd drifted out of the pro game.

Guessing the commentator had notes that made the link between the two Clarke's both ex Rovers and both involved in that promotion as player and manager potentially meeting at Wembley on opposing sides and then got confused?

Something did surprise me a little was the size of the play off attendances at Mansfield and Northampton.

Mansfield 7,469
Northampton 7,619

Whereas our first leg was 14,086 so nearly the combined attendance of both those games.

Mansfield think that they will take between 10k and 15k to Wembley (we had 13,132 home fans for the Barrow game) , I would think that if we get there we will reach easily 30k again with the good feeling and extra support this season.

To be fair to Northampton, that's pretty much the capacity of Sixfields, maybe 150 off and even sell outs rarely fill all the seats.

Mansfield had a couple of thousand tickets available though.

I have watched a bit of this on hesgoals and it looks a typical National league game, lots of endeavour and running around but woeful quality final ball from both sides.

Tbh, with flights being cancelled all over this weekend, I donít think I would have coped if mine had been one of them.

Shitty thing, this. An Everton fan set up a fake coach company and took orders from Liverpool fans for transport to Paris for the Champions League final and, obviously, didnít turn up.

Thereís rivalry and all that, but that was awful.

if that's true they've got 2 problem's
  1. a fraud investigation
   2. a kicking coming

I did see a story about a shit coach company not turning up until 12:15am agree telling everyone to go home.
