If some clubs want to take a voluntary relegation, let them bit don't spoil the integrity of the competition.

This is what I said a few months ago. Makes sense, brings some money into football again and does spice things up. Perhaps the EFL trophy could only be between these two leagues as well so there could be some visits up North???

League Two South, if it came into being, immediately dilutes the quality of the football on offer. Relegation from 'League Two South' is a direct route to oblivion. Promotion out of it would be for two teams only. It would be more appropriate to call it National League North and South.

In the order of finishing, these were the 13 most southerly teams in the NL Premier. If a new L2 South took 12 of them and it was done by lines of latitude, Boreham Wood would have to go north, by a small margin from Barnet. But how many would bring decent support apart from Yeovil and maybe Torquay?

Yeovil
Boreham Wood
Woking
Barnet
Dover
Bromley
Sutton United
Torquay
Aldershot
Eastleigh
Dag & Red
Ebbsfleet
Maidenhead United

Be honest. If we were in the Conference how many of you would go for it?

If we did merge it would have a knock on effect playing wise going up to next division I think clubs would be less equipped

So the EFL becomes 96 clubs? Less of a share of the already limited money pot provided to EFL clubs? There's more than enough money at the top of the game to properly fund the entire football league pyramid.

5 divisions of 20 is an idea I would prefer to this, absorbing 8 National League teams into the EFL. Although that's fewer home games for each club to bring in much needed finance.

This 100 times over.

You would either be paying league 2 wages in the conference south or your squad becomes a complete team of part time players overnight, they struggle, and you're looking at consecutive relegations.

Plus the infrastructure of the club goes upon relegation.

The theory is great. Could maybe go Premier League 1 and 2 (Championship) Then have a Championship North/South (League 1 and 2) with salary caps and wage structures in place for relegation and promotions.

Of course, the NL teams going into my L2 South would also include Boreham Wood because it would have equal status with L2 North. Probably Solihull too.
