    **Official** Lower League Football Thread

    Hello football fans.

    This thread is for discussion of the real thing: the lower leagues of all footballing nations. Then we can discuss them passionately, rather than making passing references to our team that get swamped away by discussion as to who has the shiniest boots in the Man U u-19 second string.

    Obviously I'm not a moderator, but I believe it would be out of the spirit of this thread if any of the following (and others) were discussed here (unless discussed in such a way as to why the lower leagues are better):











    Players like this:





    are not welcome.

    We want real teams, real players:



    Real leagues:



    I hope this thread is a success. It will hardly detract from the main English football thread, which is mainly Premiership and England's national side based. I know I'll still post in it, but from now on this will be my first port of call.

    I know the season's nearly over; that's why i thought starting this thread now would be a good idea, as it gives us the chance to discuss our teams' transfers, without worrying about Steven Gerrard's signing-on fee.

    And of course, the play-offs are currently happening. Oldham V Blackpool tomorrow. Jesus, picking a winner there is like asking if I'd rather drown or get shot in the mouth.

    People talk about the Championship playoffs being the biggest games in football... but next Sunday, if we win we're playing Bradford the season after - and if we lose, it's Droylsden.

    I always wanted to find a lower league side to support, i guess this thread could be a good way to find out more about them. Which team has the highest number of Australian players in the Championships and which team has the lowest bugdet?

    Any football that's not top tier. So I guess in Oz, that means non-A league.

    As for your question, I don't know which side has the highest number of Aussies, but we have one at Tranmere, so you could choose us. Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, plays left-back or centre-back. Got a few goals for us last season, mainly during the Ashes, which made me suspicious, I don't know why:



    He's the one in white ftr

    As for lowest budget, that's impossible to answer really. Outside of the Championship, where there are still plenty of rich clubs, we're all pretty poverty-stricken. I guess things must be pretty dire at Boston United at the minute, who have just been relegated from League Two and gone into administration.

    Angry about Leeds doing that btw

    um. Dunno? I can't stop anyone talking about anything, I'm not a mod

    The U21s would probably go in the main thread. See what other people think though.

    No. Clearly not. That's International football, not lower league.

    And no-one is to support Boston United. I'd rather Plymouth won stuff than they did.

    Shane Cansdell-Sherriff is pretty close to the national team, didn't realise he signed for Tranmere. When he was in Denmark (i think) there were talks he should move to a bigger club to push for a national spot. You probably know his not that great, but we got next to none half decent left sided players after all the retirements in defense (mainly left hand side), so his pretty close. He played for the Under23 a couple years back, him Jade North formed a pretty good combination as wing backs. I presume Tremere in the Championship.

    Nah, we're in League One. Missed out on the play-offs as well this year, while SKD's Oldham, and gypsy chavs Blackpool got in them

    Sherriff's okay, prefer him at left-back to centre-back, and on a good day he's very good (for League One) but he has more off-days than most and can be a liability when he has these days

    Is he still better going forward, then defending?
