Blyth who have lost half their games this season would be down in 13th place.
Plus games would probably pan out slightly differently, given two points for a win provides less incentive than the three-point system.
The present system does throw up anomalies such as Blyth who could still in theory
gain a play off place and possible promotion after losing half their games in the league.
I think it's time football had a bonus point system based on the number of goals scored in a match. For every 3 goals up to 6 you get a bonus point - thus rewarding attacking play and encouraging less of the negative tactics and you can still come away from a 4-3 classic with something to show for your efforts.
