mx Seems like an idea worth discussing, but if they add a division, why not go regional? Division 4 north and south anyone? more derbies, lower costs for fans and clubs would offset the loss of revenue from fewer games.
Quite. It seems perverse to restructure the league to bring more teams into the "professional" pyramid, yet not regionalise the lowest division(s) to help those clubs achieve that. I'd have the champions of League Three North and South promoted, and a play-off competition between 2nd and 3rd of each division to decide the third spot.
Stranded - on the shift, I imagine they would split the relegation spots over more than one season, 7 to go down would be brutal.
