If we go down with Colchester and Orient we would all be in the company of Luton, Oxford., Wimbledon, Barnet, Portsmouth, Dagenham, Exeter, Cambridge.
Possibly Stevenage and Plymouth too.
We would have some pretty decent home crowds and good away days.

If the club are looking to save money, at least it would save on the fuel bill.

Plymouth is a belter

I like this line of thinking. Good emotional insurance for if things go *beep*-up on Sunday. (I'm not sure now though if I'll be more depressed if we win or if we lose Smile )

Will Gillingham try harder to beat Notts County in hope of keeping a local fixture with us in Divisin One?

I agree. I'll be gutted (for a bit) if we go down, but L2 sounds much more of a hoot.

While I shall be cheering for a Crawley win on Sunday the club have already stated there will be a lower budget for next season, meaning another difficult season.Div 2 is a better fit for us Manager and player wages wise and geographically for travelling supporters both home and away.A couple of seasons without a struggle may improve our fanbase and encourage more investment.

Serious Question: did our level of home match attendees by locals significantly improve following promotion from League 2 to League 1...?

League 2 still feels massive after being brought up on southern league. Living the dream.

We have to factor in though that, depending on contracts a lot of the players will not want to play in Div 2 and we could lose a lot of the better players who will want to pay at the highest level they can.

This leads to a downward spiral of poorer results, dwindling crowds, lower revenues etc.

Better not to be relegated.
