Is this young fellow the son of Steve?
Blooming good old player was his father.

Maybe we should be looking to get Ricky Miller in on loan, He's out of favour at Port Vale and hasn't featured since 4th December in the Checkatrade trophy. Just saying.

I believe Miller has been injured rather than out of favour. But when you consider the fact that he lives in Stoke and is banned from driving for three years (his third drink drive conviction was last summer), getting to training and games with us presumably wouldn't be viable.

Sounds as though the Three Bells pub in Stoke Sunday league would be more appealing to him .

Chettle is a proper ball playing midfielder and will be a fine signing IF he is given the platform to play

If it's just lumped long he won't be effective

the info that my post is based on was from a tweet made by the BBC Radio Derby guy who covers Alfreton matches, so hopefully this is correct, as he sounds like another Liam Agnew, who fitted in particularly well, albeit for a few games

Did the other loanee midfielder from Barnsley come on 2nd half against Alfreton?
He was on the bench at the last home game... maybe that's as good as it gets for the youngster  :-\

He came on for the last few minutes, looked lively, but not long enough out there to have much effect. he is known as "#41". Mr Chettle is now known as "#42"!

May be a record for this point in the season, but still a few to go before it's an overall record total for Boston United. Here's a list of the total number of players used over the past few seasons.

2000-01 38
2001-02 36
2002-03 37
2003-04 38
2004-05 40
2005-06 35
2006-07 40
2007-08 43
2008-09 36
2009-10 33
2010-11 49
2011-12 44
2012-13 37
2013-14 41
2014-15 42
2015-16 49
2016-17 51
2017-18 48
2018-19 41

It's a tad higher than the 17 players used in 1966-67 (http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/stats66.html) that won the West Midlands League title. Didn't have any problems finding a goalscorer that season either. Peter Thompson got 42 goals in 46 appearances but wasn't top scorer. That went to Jimmy Rayner with 49 in 51 appearances.

at the risk of being sexist, let's hope we don't get as far as "#88"!!!!

So it maybe end up slightly higher than average. The way some people go on you'd think it was way beyond anything we'd experienced before.

Would be interesting to see how many players the promoted teams used. I would say pretty good odds not as many as us.

All part of the CE learning curve. If I was embarking upon my first full year in the league then I would be trying everything. As long as he doesn't do the same next season.

in one of his post match interviews recently he was asked directly about the "revolving door" and his answer was "that's who i am, always trying to improve things". fair enough response.

Would be a fair response but not seeing better quality players being recruited. Think he still has a lot to learn and needs an experienced person beside him or our scout needs to improve his choices

I agree with what you say regards improvement. Many of HIS players (last season included) haven't been CN standard, they've been Unibond standard, as they're players he already knows, and as is currently being proven, they're generally not up to CN play off standard, which is where we are all agreed where we SHOULD be at as a club. The Boardroom seemingly have backed his style and player hiring and firing, so accept his revolving door, which we all have to, like it or not. For the record I'm a firm believer in playing a settled team whenever possible, and personally, I don't like this policy.

Yes, no stability in selection, no where near any style or consistency on the pitch. I just really wonder what CE has to offer this job now? You have 2 say Newton has backed him well financially. DN himself must be thinking: how many players does this guy need 2 sign in half a season????

It's just so v v disappointing. There is a fear/ inability to perform at York St?  With a Total lack of commitment to the cause. Any self belief this ever changing lot had has long since disappeared. It's just a fact unless there is a dramatic upturn in form we will be in the relegation mix.

Totally agree and I watched Craig turn around looking at the townend after the match and the stick he was getting. Looked like genuine shock on his part and would think he knows he is losing the support of many of the fans now.

This must feel like dejavu for DN it's becoming a 're run of the Murray tenure. He will desperately want to give CE more time & as we are (currently) mid table that will probably happen. It doesn't detract from the fact that by all accounts (including CE's) that first half yesterday was disgraceful & if not for Willis we could easily have gone in 5 or 6 down!

For Elliot to say he was ashamed of his players & doesn't know why they downed tools first half is of Serious concern to all. His response is so similar to AM's towards the end of his spell. Personally & maily due to Club finances he needs to at least see this season out.

There have been a few fans questioning from the onset whether or not this was to big & 2 quick a step up for CE & it looks like that's the case.

Let's be frank; there were under 900 BUFC fans at York St yesterday. Forget we just had Christmas, fans on hols etc. That was 2 sides allegedly fighting it out for a play off place? That turn out says everything about whats been served up for long enough at home. It shows as Delbar says Elliots losing support rapidly. For that fixture yesterday as we know from DG's 3 full seasons an entertaining Boston would have pulled in 12-1300+.

The massive problem I see ahead for us is 3 fold:

 We are shocking at home, players confidence shot, will we have 2 rely on away games for points?

We are so predictable to play against & don't score enough goals. Even during that good run in last season something like 15+ goals came from the penalty spot.

Finally this run in is going to be so tough. Kiddi away Sat then due to the structure of the league; every team we play will be battling either for the Play offs, or to avoid the drop. The 7 play off places virtually means no mid table safety.

Agree with most of that Champs.

My optimistic view is that CE is on a very steep learning curve and will get it right. Football fans can be fickle. Most will only chant and cheer if they are getting entertained by their team. Confidence within the playing staff seems low and they need to turn this around. Lots of support and encouragement from the fans would no doubt help with this but is unlikely to happen until the fans get entertained. It can be a vicious circle.

Too early to judge CC from yesterday's performance but I always worry a bit when we get loanees from teams in a similar position to ourselves. I wish we could tap into some half decent League 1 / 2 teams and get their fringe players (not just the youth teamers).
