Anybody got a second team you support not in a top division?

Sutton had the chance to go second today from 5th. They drew 1-1 with Wrexham who are one place above them but they do have a game in hand over two/four teams a head of them. 

In other news, if the achieve promotion to the football league they would currently be forced to rip up their artifical 3d pitch, which is also used by the local community, because they’re banned in the EFL. The punishment for it is being relegated, twice.

Not only will it cost them all the prize money from promotion to replace it, they’ll lose revenue from the community use and add another sh*te standard pitch that’s prone to flooding/freezing etc. with games more likely to be called off.

The cherry on the cake is they have to accept promotion and agree to change it in May with the football league set to vote in allowing 3D pitches in June. They wonder why lower league teams struggle financially!

Seen Bath play many times over the years, cheap, but they bore me to tears. Sideways passing, not a lot to get excited about and the tea is scolding hot, tastes like sh*t. Rovers played their for 10 years I think, played Liverpool once, most exciting thing that happened their.

Not exactly a second team, more of a soft spot, purely because they were the closest league team to where I used to live. I'd like to see them do well, but in truth it goes as far as checking their results. I only ever went to Griffin Park once, and that was to watch us play in a pre-season friendly. Many moons ago, I don't remember a thing about the game, but I did have a rather pleasant encounter with a female Brentford fan.

Carlisle got their point of 2018/19 with a point v Northampton at home on Saturday.


Carlisle United and Northampton Town both got their first point of the season on the board as they fought out an exciting draw.

Jamie Devitt fired Carlisle in front on the half-hour mark with a superb 25-yard shot following a short free-kick just inside the Northampton half.

Northampton drew level on 40 minutes when Andy Williams worked some space to the left of goal and his cross was headed home from six yards by Kevin Van Veen.

Two goals in a minute brought the second half to life. Matt Crooks swept Northampton into the lead from a Sam Hoskins ball across the six-yard box in the 62nd minute only for Hallam Hope to immediately go racing through the middle and slip the ball past David Cornell for the equaliser.

Both sides went hunting for a winner in a frantic finale with Hoskins almost squeezing one in for the visitors and Hope off target with another attempt for Carlisle.
