Haha. It's on the bit of the Piccadilly line that doesn't go to Heathrow. Happy to help :D

The one I want is Boreham Wood. I don't get to even the Saturday London games as I'm cloning in to my last few years of playing

But Boreham Wood is one train stop away from our home ground. So a 1pm kick off, a triple substitution of the three Bolton fans who play for us with 10 mins to go, and an uber, and I could play and watch us. And I'd have literally brought my boots.

Jeez...remember that wealdstone raider guy? “You want some?”

That’s the level you can walk round the ground and swap ends as a fan at half time. Delete club if that happens!
Didn't he have a pint in his hand as well? Things are looking up :D

Whoever goes down from D2 this season gets to play the two teams promoted from the National League North next year. Currently, well known northerners Gloucester top that league.

This leagues bonkers. Part of me wouldn’t mind getting to some games in it next season.

Those last 3 games then...7 points was probably par for promotion, 9 would have had me dreaming of the title. I think promotions up for grabs now - think Tranmere look pretty set to go up despite losing Vaughan. Then it’s Cheltenham, FGR, Morecambe, Newport, Exeter, and Cambridge. Bradford/Carlisle with the games in hand...Harrogate are on a good run but don’t see them sticking it out. I think we’re better than all but can we keep winning?

Keeping winning is what we need to do now we’re up there. Other teams will be picking up points regularly so a couple of games without a win could really hurt us. 80 points seems to be enough for 3rd place in recent seasons, so that means 26 from 12 needed. We’ve just picked up 26 from the last 10 so we’re on the right lines.

After 34 games in 1988 we were 3rd on 58 points - which is exactly how many points 3rd has now. 7th were Torquay on 54 points (but from only 32 games) - so we're either 4 points behind that level (or we've played two games too many!)...
