The Twitter feed is quite hilarious.  The guy is going after a few folk for a few quid when old news articles about him hardly sets up a pious backdrop......

They don't half seem to attract some chancers down at The Walks don't they?

I remember a former associate of Evans and major club sponsor showing up there and it ending badly.

Can't see it ending well

Start doBig deals on blocks of tickets, where then is the encouragement to buy a season ticket at the start of the season?

No one could foresee this fixture pile up at this time of season, it couldn't have come at a worse time really . There was a lot of goodwill towards the club from the fans due to the good home form and cup run. I'd have been inclined to tap into that and try and get a few more through the turnstiles at a notoriously tough time of year.

But I think the argument about season ticket holders getting upset about ticketing deals is a hollow one, we all want to see the ground busy and if the occasional deal or BOGOF is implemented then fair enough I say. I'm very happy with my ST price, it probably saves me £60 per season on walk up prices and as I hardly ever miss a home game thats good value.

An ideal solution would be a mini discount. Say a book of 4 tickets for the next 4 home games.  The cost being for the price of three. This would give the club advance payment and ensures a good gate for a cold Tuesday night. Just an idea.

Exactly that.

Also gives my wallet a chance to rest, all these games has seen it suffer fatigue.

Luckily I've a season ticket so its not such a hardship but the club should have looked at the fixture pile up this month and done some sort of ticket deal either for the 3 midweek games or the 5/6 games in the month. 6 home games for a paying customer is £90 in the stand, thats a lot of money in a traditionally tight month for money, especially in a low income area like Boston. The Curzon game was always going to be a smaller than average gate so it would have been the ideal opportunity to wheel out an initiative over Xmas to keep interest up in the club.

The club are really going to have to up their game in the new ground, it'll be a hard sell for a lot to trail out to Wyberton on a cold Tuesday night to watch unattractive opponents, personally I think 894 would be a decent gate out there, I really think you can chop a couple of hundred off that for a similar game out there. The new ground should be a new start with new, fresh ideas especially in ticketing games with little appeal to anyone except the diehards.

And before the usual bores start with the personal stuff I have to say the club got the ticketing and pricing bang on for the Rochdale games, it was a step in the right direction. But that kind of awareness needs to be carried forward throughout the rest of the season.

Totally flabbergasted that there’s some BUFC fans saying they would have him back.

Are there? God help us!

Probably the sort of 'fan' that can find their way to Carshalton and Rochdale but can't find York St on a Saturday afternoon.

Piergianni not getting into Salford's team for past number of weeks.

Can't say I'm surprised....far too slow for that level.

Bet he ends up at Fylde.

First Carshalton and now Lynn, a matchday experience will soon consist of turning up and going home....

Bit moist isn't it?

Apparently we've had 4cm of rain since yesterday afternoon.

Might be struggle if it carries on much longer, but would it be disastrous if we didn't play with the busy schedule coming up?

Agree with Pete, we'll probably do similar, doesn't mean I agree with it but it seems to be the norm nowadays.

The same name was mentioned to me 2-3 times in regards to the flares. A quick trawl of Twitter shows this idiot openly bragging about using them at a previous game.

Josh was banned for much less a couple of years ago, the club have CCTV and no doubt a good idea who it is, a 5 year minimum ban and legal action if we are fined for this moron's selfishness should be a minimum punishment.

Possibly, but Smith and Wilkinson kept the club at the top table for almost a decade, Arthur was a nice guy and always deserves to be remembered fondly but Wembley was a one off, with a series of favorable home draws to boot. If we'd had to go to Runcorn that afternoon instead of them coming to a bear pit like York St I think the outcome may have been very different.

But a good point, I know BUSA have a Hall of Fame for popular players and staff members, maybe in the new social club we ought to have a Wall of Fame with photo's of these people?

Sad news.

Just a thought... Watford have named a stand after Graham Taylor, Man Utd after Alex Ferguson and Nottingham Forest after Brian Clough. We'll soon have four new stands to name at The Quadrant. Could we call them different to the North, East, South and West stands? Why not name our stands after our most successful (and popular) former managers?

Can't make tonight's fans forum, maybe a, question someone else could put to the club?

I'll be raising that point myself, as a club we could do more to honour both Jim and Howard Wilkinson. I know commercial concerns override emotion in football but in the case of these two I'm sure the club could come up with something.
