    Huge news.

    Needs 90% of clubs to agree in a vote next summer.

    This has made sense for some time with the rising number of full time non league clubs. Though to create the 5th division that will mean 'relegating' the bottom half of League 2, which is what happened when they made the old Division 4.

    It'll also mean a loss in revenue for big teams, 4 less home matches. I think it may also lead to the introduction of Premier league B teams into the FL.

    I initially thought this was about getting Celtic and Rangers to join, which has always been floating around for a while.

    Surprised you think that.

    Barnsley with a 6-1 aggregate win over Walsall.

    If they get promoted, it will be the 2nd most unlikely event to happen this season.

    I think the 5 leagues is a good idea, especially as people have mentioned with the increasing numbers of non-league clubs being pro anyway - but I am 100% against prem sides having "B" teams in the same league system. That's what reserves/u21s are for! I get that reserve leagues aren't as competitive and so might not be as good for player development as the FL, but I just can't stand the idea of the big clubs having 2 teams.

    Walsall have had a heck of a season - but you fear for them. They'll likely lose Bradshaw and Sawyers, so it may have been now or never for them.

    Congratulations, Barnsley.

    Shame for Walsall think they may struggle to get that high again next season.

    They certainly will.

    Bradshaw and Sawyers would be the two men I'd be trying to sign from the third tier - along with Ajose. If they lose them (which they will) I think they'll struggle getting top six. They'll be comfortably mid-table again, though.

    Stranger things being Derby almost overturning their deficit vs Hull!

    Ha, but I think Millwall will advance - and they'll be a force to be reckoned with in the final. Millwall fans love heading to Wembley, and they'll almost turn the play-off final into a home game against Barnsley. Their fans have been raucous there in previous years.

    This is the best example Nottingham Forest at home with a two goal lead and blowing it against Yeovil.

    That's exactly why I'm hoping Millwall don't go through.

    One of the most hated fanbases in the country - legitimately worse than Chelsea fans.
