The football play-off time is with us again, but why do we need it? Premiership is decided 1st/2nd/3rd taken on points total and Three go down, again on points. The we come to the Championship, Two go up but they have a play-off to find a third to join them, why? if the Premiership is decided on points then all the other clubs below them should atomatically should be first,second and third. I think it unjust that any team that plays 46 games and finishes third in the table should have to go into a play-off to go up to the next level. Example: Sunderland 88 up Birmingham 86 up Derby 84 West Brom 76 Wolves 76 Southampton 75 Derby should go up by right on the points, now they have to play again and if on a bad day they could lose to Southampton. I do not support any team, they are overpaid, one team is forking out £57 m a year. If a team,band,person collects more points than you, they on the day are better than you, so why play them again? Just my thoughts. Someone might explain it to me.
