    FK Csikszereda, my local team, will finish second for the second year in a row. Sadly the Romanian pyramid being what it is only the division champions go up (there are 5 divisions at level 3 all feeding into one at level 2). So another excellent season but not quite excellent enough. They even wrapped up the season yesterday with an 8-1 away win. Congratulations to Aerostar Bacau who won the league and will go up.

    CFR Cluj are coached by Sheffield Wednesday's Dan Petrescu. Double woohoo
    In a similar vein, FC Midtylland have won the Danish Superliga for the second time in four seasons, overtaking FC Brondby with a late winning run. Quite an achievement after selling top striker Alexander Sorloth to Palace for 9m in January.

    Congratulations to owner Matthew Benham.

    I'm going to Cluj in July. Think we get there in time to watch the 4th quarter final, which on paper looks like being Spain v Argentina.

    Having assured a top two finish in the “Liga 1/2/3” with a 2-0 win at Lugo, SD Huesca have been promoted to the Spanish top flight for the first time in their 58 year history. They are the second Aragonese team to reach those lofty heights.

    Yesterday, FC Emmen beat Sparta Rotterdam in the Dutch promotion playoffs, thereby reaching the Eredivisie for the first time in their 88 year history. Emmen are yet another Dutch club whose colours are red and white.

    The Brolin/Asprilla/Zola team a few years before that weren't too bad either. The ECWC final was the ultimate George Graham 1-0.

    Welcome back Parma, after all the misery.

    What a fu**in' side they once had.


    Buffon, Thuram, Cannavaro, Crespo, Bennarivo, Veron, Sensini, Stanic, Chiesa, and a few more

    Their third consecutive promotion, following their liquidation and relegation to Serie D in 2015.

    Late drama - Foggia equalise in the 89th minute, so Parma are promoted on goal difference!

    Frosinone promptly go 2-1 up.

    Parma are approximately 20 minutes away from a return to Serie A - trailing Frosinone by two points at the start of the night, the Gialloblu lead Spezia 2-0, while their rivals trail Foggia 1-0. Parma now have a goal difference advantage of three, making a draw of zero value to Frosinone.

    tbf the last time the met police's "fans" went to south wales was probably during the miner's strike, so they're unlikely to be particularly welcome.

    At step three level, you've generally got about twenty supporters who'll go anywhere, and the rest who won't travel further than ten miles, and only if it's on a bus route.

    I know, for example, that the Hitchin hard core will miss their trips to Merthyr (assuming we're in the Midland section of the SLP). Partly because they were usually evenly matched affairs, but somehow goalie Michael Johnson managed to channel the spirit of Gil Merrick, and saved almost everything they threw at him. Merthyr's fans recognised this and began a succession of "'Ee's done it again!" frustration chants. Really good rivalry between both groups of supporters.

    I imagine that privatising care homes, slashing district council workforces and selling people's farmland from under them were all eliminated in the group stages.

    Remember Bishop's Stortford moaning about being placed in the Conference North a few seasons back because they where the 22nd most Northerly Step 2 side. London clubs are terrible for expecting the pyramid to arrange itself for their convenience.

    Oof, Wisbech - promoted from the United Counties - have been put in the NPL1E. That's going to hurt.
    I don't think so, there are plenty of teams nearby in that division- if anything its the two Northern league promoted sides who look geographically isolated.

    If you think Step 3/4 allocation has been confusing, check out the 2003-04 Isthmian league playoffs, when the Conference North and South were created. Isthmian South champions Lewes had to play three playoff games and earned a double promotion...

    They are the provisional maps from earlier in the year, and they always have to shuffle teams near the boundaries to get the numbers to add up.
