    That makes it four!

    Liverpool, though!!

    And Chelsea? Will it be too little, too late?

    But then again, you don't want to end up with the usual Big Six now, do you?

    They have made £3.4m profit in transfers over the last 12 months
    The squad is just 27 players and the average wage just £10k, so I guess that is how the finances have improved as attendances are still around 5,000

    Just read the lot!
    Great idea this Kingsley, but I expect nothing less from the King of CM Stories!

    I think the co efficients change on the day that European Qualifers are announced so thats the time to have a look. The rolling 5 year points system saved England for a while but after that 5 years of failure, they have tanked, Sunderland (of all teams it had to be them) looked like they might give it a little boost but England will need to keep getting teams in the latter stages to get it back up again and it'll probably take more than a decade to get it back to anywhere near where it was.

    I'm not sure where it started, but St. James is a 60,000 capacity. Has that been increased ?
    Real life capacity is 52,000 so it's gone up. They have improved year one year for the last three or so, so I'm looking forward to them actually getting a promotion this time. They can't fail can they? Hardly any 'real life' Premier League teams left in there.

    Once again, great experiment and look forward to seeing what happens next.

    Disappointing, but maybe Kidderminster, MKD, and Salford will establish themselves at least. York seem to be very inconsistent from one year to the next but might still rise back up. It does just look like the old order will be largely restored though, even if it takes Liverpool and Chelsea longer than the rest.
