Agreed, DKF. Our problem is that the gates are right down. The last two and a half seasons in Nat 1 have been light years more entertaining than our twilight years in the C'ship. Folk don't seem to want to watch the product, though. OK, some may have gone to Sandy Park as the Chiefs have hit their stride - but I don't think that's the whole reason.

The quality is not just resident in Nat 1 - it's coming up from below, too. Just look at what the likes of B Stortford and OEs have done in their first season at L3 and Sale threaten. And see the potential dangers, as well - recent pacesetters like Fylde and Park are having real problems.
Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

So true SHA, eye off ball for a moment equals revolving trapdoor. That is creeping up into the Championship as well. Hartpury have been successful up to a point and I would absolutely expect Coventry to be a very formidable outfit.
