Some on here and others elsewhere (perhaps RM?) appear to believe we should have a divine right to promotion.
I wonder how many other clubs will be equally as gutted about not achieving League 1 status?

Northampton Town? Might still make it but with the potential support and set-up - they will be devastated if they fail.

Rotherham United. In the mix but if they fail? Would expect a top three position.

Bradford City? League Cup Finalists, massive support, years in lower tier. May get there but should have been certs

Chesterfield? Still battling. New stadium, improved support and set-up in recent years. Would have looked to a return.

Bristol Rovers? Traditionally a higher division side. Will be frustrated.

Oxford United? Ex-top division, League Cup winners in the 80's. Newish (3 sided) stadium. Will be gutted again.

Wycombe Wanderers? Have the set-up.

Plymouth Argyle? Supporters would never have envisioned such a sorry state. The club has been in freefall.

We are disappointed but there are other clubs (included some not mentioned) who will also be frustrated. Except Argyle due to the obvious financial woes - all the above would have good reason to expect to finish above Southend United and achieve promotion. We would expect to be above them. We may all fail.
Is football!
