We have just got to hope that they do not look south for a replacement :(

Adam Murray would suit them.

I have a feeling at the moment that they would have to forfeit there new stadium to afford that to happen.
DN would make them bankrupt before letting our man go.

I think you are way off reality chubby ,  I suspect York would get away with making a goodwill payment amounting to peanuts ,

The thing in our favour is, if rumours are correct is CE is earmarked for Linscum when the Cowley's do depart.

I think CE will give what he's started a chance here first. He was loyal at Shaw Lane.I personally wouldnt go to York, as I think we are better geared up for promotion than they are.

I see a contract extension offer coming very shortly.
York is a club in crisis and has been for a few years now, they must be pilling there money into the new ground and not the team, but perhaps l am way off the mark.
Who knows, but one thing is for sure, managers don't last long there, a bit like fishy really.

I wouldn't say a club in crisis. I was in York last week talking to some blokes re York. Funding in place for ground, you should look at where they are it with it very impressive. Just didn't get off to a flyer.

It would cost them. And lets not forget DM would make them pay as he had to when we got him. But tbh i don't think CE will go anywhere this season. He has done okay but is yet to prove himself at this level

Managers contracts are of little value at this level as we found out with S&H .


York probably a better proposition than Lincoln ,  Cowley has took City a long way and a new manager will have an hard job to maintain the momentum .

Whereas York are in much the same position playing wise as Lincoln were pre Cowley , with potential to move up the leagues and with a new stadium in the pipeline they may well overshadow Lincoln in the future .

Craig is going nowhere !! He has started a project here and will want to finish it, that is the sort of character that he is. Now peeps please, no more idle speculation. Let's concentrate on the job in hand and that is gaining 6 points this Bank holiday weekend. UTP

Lincoln are upgrading their training ground and looking at building a new stadium near the university. They may finally be able to fulfill their "Championship 2020" dream or whatever it was called, just a few years late!

Stupid speculation fueled only by us and no one else.

It's similar to the Grimsby link - I'm sure that was just us paranoid Boston fans creating that speculation (and I hold my hands up as I joined in) rather than there being any serious link. Craig seems to have a bit of the Danny Cowley about him insofar he seems unlikely to abandon this project for a modest step up (and York in their current state are just that). I think we just need to chill out and enjoy the season.

Yes I agree with you Pete, it has been a really good season so far and I am looking forward to the rest of it.
Let's hope we get a good cup run as well.

Being petrified your manager is about to leave is actually a good thing in many ways.... it means they're doing something right!

Unless it actually happens and they nick half your squad, of course.

When you listen to Craig, right from the his first interview, he gives the impression that he not only wants to be succesful but also that he wants to leave something behind at the club,  real shame that Shaw Lane disappeared after his success there just hope he takes us back to the Conference before moving up the football ladder.

Similar subject, but does anyone know if he is the FT manager? (despite us being a part time club), if not maybe his day job would dictate that he is extremely fussy about his next move

I may be wrong but I thought that he is a teacher and that was his main job.
So if that's correct l would imagine that he is part time at Boston.
I don't know for sure though.

Don't worry.  Speaking to a local taxi driver and York supporter he said Craig who?  He thinks they will promote within the club.

And the second managerial casualty is...Tom Greaves at FC Utd. He has chosen to step down due to struggling to juggle FC Utd with his other job and family.

The whole thread has nothing to with Boston United, but you my friend are forgetting that this is a forum for people to discuss many issues and not necessarily about Boston United.
This topic title is about managers being sacked,it does not state which league or Boston United related issues only.
Just thought l would make that clear.

It was started regarding the former manager of York City... a team in our division, and discussion was made about whether they'd approach CE (you even posted about it yourself). It very much has something to do with BUFC!

Just thought l would make that clear.

If only you were as prompt as you were clear  ;)

Trouble is Pete a manager is only as good as his last few games in the eyes of some chairman, past glories mean nothing to them, only the history books.
