Certainly a game of 2 halfs. Well done Cox for bringing on Hanson which changed the game. Feriki what a talent btw.

Always say it when we win not many comment.  We lose there all over it.  For me today Nicholson was class his touch movements are class.  I can see us getting there

First half was difficult to watch but second half was much better.

Main observation I have had recently is when we do start playing well we look more balanced as a team. Bodes well for the rest of the season and fingers crossed into next season as well.

Feriki and Byrne were absolute class today!

A cracking game, particularly the second half. It shows what we can do when we are focused. Seriki had their defence in tatters. Great to see that we go continued to go forward after taking the lead instead of falling back to "protect our advantage".

Thought Leesley's cross field pass to Seriki was Premiership quality. Seriki had their no 3 in his pocket all match. In the end they had to put two men on him. If we can get some kind of result on Monday. A little wobble from Brackley yesterday and we are one of the few teams to beat them this season.

I really enjoyed the game and thought the whole team played well. I believe the manager is right when he says the mentality is improving. I was also pleased to see more of a passing game. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and plenty of reasons to be optimistic..well done to the team and staff..

I have not said much recently as I have been a little peed off by so called fans having a pop at the manager with stupid comments ie: Hoof ball etc. Fortunately on this site we have members who in the main whether commenting on individuals or the team in general ensure their comments are constructive. For me the manager showed his experience yesterday against a very organised defensive team whos recent form has seen many clean sheets against good opposition. Heard afew moans when Jake was subbed for a big man, incidently Jake was not annoyed as he came off urging everyone else to get stuck in and high fiving the management team (Good to see). This proved decisive and led to a really first class victory proving when needed the odd hoof works when all else fails. Great see and hear the support ( by the way I was cosest to to the 1800 gate on the redictor just 4 away.

I agree with what you say, Mel. A certain forum seems to attract intemperate views, but we are usually more measured here! How anyone could have suggested we played hoof ball against Blyth is beyond me. I'll be the first to admit I was disappointed when Jake Wright went off yesterday, but it proved to be the right decision. And our second goal was well worked. We're beginning to play some nice football at times, and you can certainly not doubt the determination. Nicholson is a good signing. I have my doubts whether we'll be good enough to go up this season, but there is encouragement for the future.

I agree the first half wasn't the best but apart from the brilliant save our keeper made when the player through on goal and the penalty we were the better team, second half we were top draw, our keeper didn't have to make a save.

Totally agree Mel.  As you know I sit with mates in the lounge and we have several guests on the table each week.  To a man they l enjoy the quality of the day and entertainment and value for money. Most have now been to Ellenders to try the food and make repeat visits to matches. The football at times isn’t the best but neither is many games in the top level. The one comment I always get from people is wow what a facility for Boston in general and that they never knew about it.  The club fan base is better than is was at the old ground which I was a massive fan of but really enjoying my Saturdays and the new way of watching my club.

Totally true Fishtoft Crew..
It's "home" and a great facility...a facility the club and TOWN should be proud of.
Re the "other" forum....I binned it a few months ago.

Wholeheartedly agree. I was a fan of York Street for many years but the pride and joy I get approaching the new ground is something else. I've eaten at Ellenders,attended a Christmas party at the ground and for the first time will sample Club 85 on Saturday. All revenue to the club im happy to spend.

Spot on Lee what we as fans have now must be beyond our wildest dreams. It is my pleasure to be verbally abused by your table mates on match days as I sell the golden goal tickets. I attend BUSA meetings at the club and must admit that as I leave I glance behind me at the ground and have to pinch myself.  UTP

A nice alternative to the other forum on Facebook, is new group called Boston United Pilgrims. It has some ex and present players as it's members. I would put a link up, but being a thicko on all things technological, you will have to search for it on Facebook. ;D

The Facebook forum is a bit wild west, isn't it? I was invited once by Richard Burton but having seen people tearing strips off one another I decided against joining it!

A 'bit wild west' is, I assume Pete, a more polite way of expressing what I think of it (I've just left it). Strange that so many who claim to support the club should spend so much time and energy slagging off most of its employees and fellow supporters. I note, incidentally, that the positioning of the apostrophe in the group's title suggests that it is a group of just one supporter.

I found the group okay in the main. But lately it's got offensive. With women and younger supporters as members, some of the posts have been aggressive. I know it's 2022 but I respect the fact that foul language should not be used in front of women and children. Old fashioned I know.

On the Boston United Pilgrims Facebook group a nice little prize on offer. They are offering an original 1985 Wembley scarf. All you have to do predict Saturday's score.

Its very seldom i look on there anymore as it became apparent that if your opium and view wasn't in line with certain people then you was inviting abuse on yourself

No-one's going to agree all the time, especially not when talking about a football club, but abuse is daft. Me and Andy Butler are always disagreeing on stuff but it never resorts to name calling and it's forgotten about the next day - or at least, it is from my end!

It's a different group mate. Boston United Pilgrims  is a new group with zero tolerance on offensive posts. It's modelling it self on Ken's excellent Pilgrims Patter. Take a look, idiots not allowed.
