Cracking game last night.  That is what the playoffs are all about.

To be fair, all the playoff games have been decent.  The second legs were all brilliant.

It's horrible losing in them but it's a great format.

great format, but not great for Matt.

Who ya got?
A) getting in
B) winning it based on which order they finish?
Tranmere
Morecombe
FGR
Newport
leading to Tranmere FGR final. Tranmere winning it. I think they’ve been the best team of those 4 and it would be better for us, as that’s a harder fixture than any of the others next season.
That worked out well

Come on Morecambe (as I want to finally see us away at Newport - and go to the Tiny Rebel brewery).

Maybe it's easier in some ways for smaller teams with smaller stadiums at this level. Teams like Vale, Stockport, Wrexham etc must be hemorrhaging cash just on maintaining their stadiums. If you have a more streamlined setup, the lower running costs offset the impact of having fewer fans.

If there was no benefit in having a smaller stadium, teams with newly built grounds like Morecambe, Salford etc would slap another 10,000 seats in there while they were at it in case they hit the big time one day.

True but on a match by match basis policing costs are always one of the biggest factors. Stadium capacity often gets considered on the basis of planning permission, transport links and ability for the area to manage large numbers of people, especially post Taylor report. 
 

It isn’t a case you can just build a massive ground. Brentford kept theirs at a relatively small 17k because of the surrounding area being quite compact and not wanting vast swathes of empty seats for atmosphere.

Know your likely attendance pattern and if aiming to be a leading Championship club with visits to the Prem, keeping spare seats limited sells Season Tickets and a steady income.
