You're right that in a pyramid system you have to have fair promotion but I'd argue that's the last thing you get from the National which, as far as I'm aware, doesn't have any financial fair play rules at all. As a result, you get loads (and it is loads these days) of newly rich owners selecting a club and stuffing its coffers so full it has a really unfair advantage over the other teams. In the case of clubs who've spent years languishing in the lower reaches of non-league they then come into the EFL with no tradition of proper league football and little or no fan base. What happens next is that traditional teams like the Vale take loads of away support to swell their coffers even more (when they don't need it) and not have the favour repaid either in terms of cash or creating a competitive atmosphere at the return home game. It's turning the EFL into something it was never intended to be - the gateway to league football for the rich and ambitious while diluting the matchday experience.


Notts County got 12,843 attendance on Saturday against Solihull. 

Fantastic that is.

When are tickets on sale for this? 

I don't think they will go on sale till next week as they will want get the rest of the Oldham tickets sold first before getting loads coming down to buy burton tickets aswell. I don't think the ticket office could cope with having to sell 2 lots of away tickets for games that are going be well attended at the same time.

I’m struggling to comprehend why this isn’t being televised. The Pirelli Stadium holds just under 7,000, Burtons average attendance is just under 3,000. I think we might get 2,500-3,000, it’s a game that lots of fans won’t be able to get a ticket for as demand will quite easily outstrip demand. North Staffs against East Staffs. Salford... Really, are the Class of 92 running out of money

Anyone who does get a ticket go there be loud and proud, get behind the lads. Is there a replay, if it’s a draw.? May be that will be televised

Would be great to go there and win, it would be equally good to go there get a draw and bring Burton back to Vale Park and complete the job then. For me some of the best times at Vale Park have been when we've won an FA Cup replay on the Monday (As it was then). There was always something magic about the atmosphere, there was more singing, the dark sky, the cold and the floodlights.

Conversely when we lost an FA Cup replay at Vale Park it was devastating.
