I believe the answer lies somewhere in this thread from the conference south forum...

http://conferencesouthnomads.freeforums.org/the-play-offs-t1403.html

The comments in that thread go from well constructed serious discussion to hilarious banter.  I note we have a director (or is it former director) commenting in it as well as Yuffers.

Regarding the play offs and rules, the league officials will need to use their "back of a fag packet" / toss of a coin system in the next two weeks or maybe a postponement of the play offs until the legal stuff is sorted. Rolling Eyes

It looks like an interesting end to the season, whatever the outcome, for all the clubs involved. alien

All that didn't stop them a couple of seasons back when Enfield Town had a legitimate appeal about an ineligible player issue, which was just swept under the carpet. So I don't imagine they'll play the game any differently this time.

I was hoping to get a similar one with Axel yesterday.

With just two games to go we may have just fallen short with regard the play offs but it is worth reflecting on the progress made in the last eighteen months.

OK we have more points but we also have scored a lot more goals. Five games where we have scored 4 or more. There used to be times when I wondered whether we would ever try to score more than two. What a turn around. It has been achieved too without a really prolific striker. Goals have truly been spread around. We even score from corners.

I feel really very positive.

Me to Benny.
Interesting comments from Poole manager about City being very good when we try. Something GO clearly has picked up.

Can't disagree with that comment. A little bit more consistency next season and a summer practicing penalties to make up for Axel going and we could be in with a shout.

I said to my wife that we rarely have two back to back good performances when we have two games in a week so I was privately hoping we would under perform against Thurrock.

Quite why it all clicked so spectacularly against Poole I don't know but the talent is there for all to see - especially Morgan.

Maybe the players were told they were playing for contracts. I personally am not enthused by players that only turn it on when they have to. I can easily see some doing exactly the same next season if they get re-signed on - ie going through the motions.

Just watched the game on Romans on Demand.  Very good and everyone put in a shift.  On paper it looks an odd City formation with 4 attackers/strikers but with Morgan, McCootie and (to a lesser extent) Watkins tracking back it worked very well.
Nice to see Sekani involved too, even though he was on for the unfortunate Rigg.

Sir Ged Roddy wrote:Right; if City beat Chelmsford and Welling (total of 65 points), we just need Wealdstone to draw with Hungerford at home and East Thurrock away (64 points) and Hampton to draw away to Welling and home to Concord (65 points, but by then an inferior goal difference).  
Simple!
Are you sure Sir Ged? Wouldn't we have to not only get 6 points but win by more than a single goal? The league table I looked at would suggest we need to get to a 24 goal difference, so +4 over two games.
Of course it will probably be irrelevant by 16.50 on Saturday!

Bloody hell, your poor wife if you bring your speculations back home with as well. I get away with answering the "Did they win?" question and that's it. That's since she bought part of the club as well!

I was wondering who was performing with who and the high standard required!
