As each season goes by it makes you realise what a great record it is will take some team to beat it. To think we were promoted before the clocks changed! Chrarlton will have to wait a few weeks before they can crack open the champagne.

Fleetwood currently 1-0 up which would put them on 101 points with another 12 up for grabs

Might not be football league but harsh to take such a record away if they do achieve it

Why? They're playing against non-league teams, albeit having a jolly good season. When they perform that well against Football League opposition the record is theirs.

And when you perform that well against top flight teams the record is yours.

Agreed to an extent with TMD here. It's a 46 game season for Fleetwood, and it's only semantics to talk about 'it's not the football league' when it is only one division below (this isn't the Hellenic League Division Two we're talking about).

Don't think anyone's claiming Reading's record is for the top division, just the football league in general.

Agree to an extent myself FWIW, but there needs to be a cut-off somewhere and I think 'professional football' is as good a line as any.

Many of these records were set with football league boundaries as that was the professional league. Not the case with many conf teams these days really

In the past records were held for the top 4 divisions, don't see why the 5th shouldn't be brought into that now

We will always have the record for the 2nd tier, time to pass the overall record on and wish them well I say

Yes they are - should we ignore their results against the semi-pros? I can see where everyone's coming from and the 'loss' of the record doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Would Fleetwood's record this season be the best non-league season in history?

In the Conference it would be; that was set last season by Crawley at 105 points.

Lord knows for the whole of non-league football though.

Nowhere near.

Exhibit A - 2003/04 Combined Counties League Premier Division - AFC Wimbledon 130 points from 46 games.
Don't know if anyone has bettered that.

There has always been a clear distinction between league and non-league. That is blurred now. Congratulations to them for a fantastic season, but they aren't in the football league so they can't have the football league points record.

If someone in the football league breaks it, great for them, we'll no longer hold it.

^ but will never be forgotten, by me at least.

Amazing that we could end the season on nearly twenty points less than we did in 2006, and still be in that same top position........just how frikkin good were we then?

Quite simply the best team ever in the second tier.

I think it's safe to assume we were better than all the third and fourth tier teams too. Quite a few of the first tier ones as well when you think about it.
