I've heard an incredible rumour that Marcus Evans 21:51 - May 15 with 1963 viewsMaySixth

has asked for the League 1 playoffs to be extended

I've been speaking to a club board member at teatime today in League One (that club is above us).

If this is true, it's shameful

There is a perverse logic to it, if the teams below us don't want to play but everyone from us and upwards do.

I saw it as a rumour on the Coventry(?) forum but little more than that. The Bristol Telegraph also says eleven of the twenty three clubs want to finish the season, rather than just the six who have spoken up - Bristol Rovers amongst them.

Sounds like he’s desperate to me ..... he probably first have as much free / available cash as many think he has and was hoping ( expecting?) Town to bounce back to Championship at first attempt . However you look at it Lambert as totally screwed up this season , in what was probs our best chance .

Has that 'board member' told you if we are going to re-invest 5m that we had received from selling Dozzell to Spurs?

Though it says nothing about Evans asking for it and suggests the extension may only go as far as eighth.

Is it that incredible? Town are in 10th place on 52 points, those above us from 3rd to 8th are only 1 point apart with five teams on 59 and Doncaster on 54. If all the teams between us and Oxford are all happy to go into a playoff type tournament for the final promotion place, this could well be the least unfair option to decide the final promotion place.

With Lambert in charge we would just be making up the numbers anyway.

Am told not Town's suggestion but a tongue-in-cheek idea from another club. Would be amazed if it happened.

Bristol paper is right - it's a fair few more than the six, inc at least one relegation battler. Several just not keen to go public and quite a few want more financial info from EFL before clarifying position. Currently I wouldn't want to bet on which way this goes - which I wouldn't have said a few days back.

Andy Holt, who's view I normally respect seems to have lost his mind somewhat over this - just isn't as abrasive as Darragh in his output.

That's the problem when you are basically a non league team in League 1.

I wonder if he read the Bristol Telegraph report, has been told it’s true, and is realising everything is on a knife edge rather than just six of the 23 causing issues.
