re Sutton United pitch. I also buy the NLP which is a very good paper btw but I hope I am not buying it next season for obvious reasons. I had missed the part about Sutton being relegated to NLS if they win the league this year, how exactly does that work?

A more logical move surely would be for them to graciously 'step aside' from top spot and then whoever was second is now first and goes up automatically, whoever was third is now second, fourth is now third and so on all the way down to eighth who then get the last play off spot as seventh. Put Sutton as 8th, as I guess you need to have a final league table.

If their business model works for them with a plastic pitch in the NL then fine but stay in the NL and let teams 2-8 become the new 1-7. Also let them keep the NL Trophy for coming first in their boardroom cabinet.

In fact wherever Sutton finish, be it second, third, fourth or whatever, if it's in the top 7 then push them down to 8th and let the others who finished below them but 8th or higher all move up one place.

I am sure the relegation of Sutton from the NL option will appeal to Guiseley, Chester and co and also the other option of only one team coming down from EFL2 will be great news for that traditional famous old team team FGR from the footballing hotbed of Gloucester but neither of those options hardly seems fair or proportionate.

Come on Barrow!yes get in Barrow 1-0 up
