Here are the updated points after:

York City 2-0 Boston United (7488)

With all tickets sold and a 7500 capacity it's not surprising that most people picked up three points for getting within 5% of the attendance. Four people - Bunyan, garry@, Ashley G and Johnny Pilgrim - got the 10 points for getting it on the nose. Only three people got the correct score - BostonTilIDie, gatley pilgrim and Kirtonian.

It all made for closest ever finish to the Prediction League with just three points separating the top six. And for the first time we have joint winners with BostonTilIDie and Uncertain Corridor equal on 90 points, both one point ahead of C.B. and Cavalier.

Well done everyone. I'm not sure what oxo's prize is. I hope it can be easily split!

Here are the updated points after:

AFC Fylde 0-2 Boston United (2050)

Not many points picked up as nobody predicted the actual score and the pathetic home attendance meant nobody got anywhere near the attendance.

Both sides have identical records for their last eight games - W5 D2 L1. Earlier league results between sides in the playoffs don't seem to give any indications of the playoff result, so Boston's wins home and away against York don't help! The attendance for the playoff match at York against Chorley was a massive 6,394 with only 314 away supporters. Boston should bring a few more. So I'm going for:

York City 1-1 Boston United (7486)

It's the score at the end of normal time that's being predicted.

Here are the updated points after:

Kidderminster Harriers 1-2 Boston United (3921)

30% of the predictions got the correct score and 36% got the attendance within 5%, but only dt woodhall and Devon Pilgrim did both. Devon Pilgrim was closest overall to the actual attendance being just 1 out.

Boston have been beaten both home and away by AFC Fylde in the league this season. But this is the playoffs and it seems anything can happen.

My prediction is:

AFC Fylde 1-1 Boston United (2500)

As usual it's the score at the end of normal time.

Here are the updated points after:

Farsley Celtic 0-2 Boston United (790)

Only Cousin Jack and BostonTilIDie predicted the actual score and nobody got within 5% of the attendance - the closest being Cousin Jack who was 57 out.

On paper Boston should get easily beaten by Kidderminster, having already lost both home and away against them in the league. However in the FA Trophy Boston won 4-1 just a week after losing the league game 1-2. So anything could happen. My Computer reckons a straightforward Home Win I'm going for:

Kidderminster Harriers 1-1 Boston United (2400)

As is usual with such knockout games decided on the day by extra time and penalties if needed, the prediction is for the score at the end of normal time.

Here are the updated points after:

Boston United 1-1 Gloucester City (2167)

Not many points scored this week. Surprisingly nobody predicted the correct score and only 5 people got that bumper attendance within 5%. With only two points separating the top four it's going to be close. I'll keep it going through the playoffs should Boston make it there, though it's not looking very likely at the moment.

The B-Ark / Prediction League - Farsley Celtic vs Boston United
« on: May 03, 2022, 07:58:38 AM »
My Computer is predicting another Draw just like it did for the last two and it got those right, so this time I'm going with it.

Farsley Celtic 3-3 Boston United (1200)

Could well be as crazy as the last time I got to go there: http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/farsleyceltic161119.html

What was your impression of the stadium Ken?

It's a superb stadium. It's not York Street, but I'm sure Boston fans will grow to love it as much as they did the old one.

I arrived about ten minutes before kick off and it was pretty full. But I got a nice seat in the West Stand and got a great view of the match. No obstructing uprights and a clear view of both ends. It was quite cold though! In the shade and an easterly wind meant I was glad I had my coat on. Looks like the new Town End could do with a bit more height to the terracing. York Street Town End must have been one of the best non-league terraces out there, with great acoustics under the roof. Don't know if it can be extended upwards easily, but it would be nice if it could.

I didn't get a chance to check out the hospitality as I had to get the train back, but I'm checking it out today as the club have invited me to have a look around at the match as a "long-time supporter" - so I'm feeling old! From all accounts it's going to be really good.

I couldn't work out the buses - they didn't seem to co-ordinate with the train, but it was a nice day so I decided to walk down the A16. It's a bit of a trek - took half an hour and I got some exercise - and the footpath runs out on the stadium side just before you get there so you have to cross to the other side for the last few hundred yards before crossing back again. You'd think the council would have extended the footpath to provide good pedestrian and cycle access. I'll try the bus today.

Here are the updated points after:

AFC Telford United 1-1 Boston United (1431)

Ten people got the correct score but only three got the attendance within 5%. Only gatley pilgrim did both.

The B-Ark / Prediction League - Boston United vs Gloucester City
« on: April 30, 2022, 05:26:52 PM »
Run-ins are always frustrating. On the face of it, like the game against Telford, it should be a Boston win. My Computer has it down as a Draw. I'm going for:

Boston United 2-1 Gloucester City (1880)

Telford are desperate for points to help avoid relegation so this on might not be as easy as it looks. My Computer has it down as a Draw. I'm going for:

AFC Telford United 0-1 Boston United (1200)

Here are the updated points after:

Boston United 1-3 AFC Fylde

36 people got the attendance within 5% but only Skegtastic and baghdadpilgrim got the correct score. Closest to the actual attendance was CB who was just 1 out. If only he'd known I was turning up for my first game at the new stadium he could have added the 1 to his prediction. :)
