The B-Ark / Re: Season Tickets
« on: June 04, 2021, 09:01:21 AM »
A cynic might suggest the fans are now seeing where they are in the clubs list of priorities.......... announce VIP & hospitality packages before the season ticket prices.

Don't worry about us, we just turn up every week, season in. season out.

I'd guess they are at last years prices but knowing how football clubs work they'll probably up them.

Happy to report the Sunday Lunch was faultless, good service, first class food and drink and a decent ambiance in there too.

I'll be going back again in the near future.

Is there a bar there where you can just get  a pint? I live 5 minutes walk from there, be nice just to have a stroll and get a couple of beers. The

It says no other parts of the site are accessible on the BUFC website

If the Pilgrims Bitter is the one brewed at The Phesantry Brewery then that's a fairly high water mark to start at.

At least they've not gone for the easy option of Doombar or Abbott Ale

No One apparently Pete

I had a Twitter run in with their chairman a few weeks ago, got very snotty. Told me everything was funded by sponsors and supporters and it was a proper community club.

Of course I believed him

There was a good one of him on Twitter the other week at the 2-2 draw at York 18 months or so ago, the photo had some terrace legends on just about to celebrate the 2nd goal.

Personally I've just about written the season off. My interest levels are at zero and I can't watch a game on a stream without a crowd, its as dull as it gets. It just proves the point that without fans football is nothing.

I'd not be comfortable attending a game even with a reduced capacity anyway

Rather wait until next August and fingers crossed for better, more normal times.

I am amazed the club decided not to appeal the decision.

Surely we need to see the reason from the National league why they made this initial decision.

I think they should be made to give their justification especially in these tough times.

They absolutely should be accountable to how they reached this ridiculous decision.

Although I don't buy into the FA still punishing the club for misdemeanors during McFraud's era I do believe as a club we can be too nice at times. I certainly would have appealed this, bugger what other clubs think, we've got our players and staffs welfare to consider first and foremost. In the current climate its the absolute height of folly to send a club traipsing 100+ miles for a game that was done and dusted.

I'd expect nothing less than standard league admission prices if its a league game.

If its an opening game against a decent FL/prem side then a couple of quid more.

Anything else would be profiteering and in the 12 years DN/NK have been here I'm yet to see that happen and I don't expect them to start now.

Cleeve and his board are an absolute disgrace in every aspect of their management

Tommo's getting a lot of local support :

Leader of ELDC, Craig Leyland said 'Common useage... a complete overreaction to suspend him'.

Lincs CC leader Martin Hill called the suspension ridiculous.

Local councillor Roger Patterson said 'the BBC are happy to pkay offensive songs on radio one, but censor things that are not offensive. The biggest threat to the BBC is the BBC'.

MP for Lincoln, Karl McCartney said that the public were losing patience with the BBC's 'out of touch-ness'.

Anyone heard what Matt Warman thinks of it?  :police:

Matt Warman thinks whatever Tory Party HQ tells him to think

Could someone please explain this word "woke". I get what it means (I think) but why "woke" exactly?

Steve 'Tommo' Thompson has been suspended by the BBC until the new year after some listeners complained about sexist remarks.
He described an altercation between players as 'handbags', nothing wrong with that, its common parlance in football punditry.
He went on to say 'the ref's wife is in',  nothing to see there, and followed it up with 'they're a couple of drama queen's... should be wearing dresses',  all within the first 20 minutes!

Sounds like he was having a great game, but he fell foul of the overly-woke BBC hierarchy and was red-carded off the airwaves  :police:
Hope and Glory won't be the same without his insightful and amusing contributions. He's a freelancer apparently, so could link up with Endeavour, or maybe do some work with the streaming from the new ground  B)

Its a sorry state of affairs when we have to pay a license fee and then be force-fed this woke, intersectionality, claptrap  :police:
Time to get rid of the licence fee and de-fund the BBC;  its an outdated business model, and it's token attempts at fairness and impartiality long since disappeared.  It would soon change if it had to fund itself like the other mainstream media do. :police:  ;)
Good luck Tommo, don't let the bastards grind you down!   ;D

Defund the BBC!

Can I ask you who you think will provide commentary of Boston games if BBC Lincs is defunded?

Endeavour do a sterling job Pete, perhaps a way could be found to get them to commentate on away games too.

I'm not a subscriber to defunding the Beeb but they need to be more accountable and more reflective of their audience instead of pandering to woke inclusivity and diversity mob that seem to be running amock there at present.

Personally I think he's a bit 'old hat' now and the show could do with a younger, more relevant voice next to Hortin.

How long has he been out of football on a day to day basis managing or coaching? Seems a long time since he managed Notts County, 10-12 years maybe. Fashions change and people get left behind. Not that he's irrelevant, just a bit dated now. A case in point being Soccer Saturday not renewing contracts this summer, yes they were a good team but good teams grow old and new blood is needed.

I know I listened to a few commentaries from them last season and they were bad, especially Thompson who showed little or no awareness of The Imps opposition. For a freelancer I thought it was pretty poor form when he's paid to have a view on both sides.

But I do agree with the general consensus on here that we live in a woke society of easily offended and even worse, offended on the behalf of others, snowflake types who suck the joy and fun out of everything in their right on pursuit of what they consider fair and just.

Depends how you term historical

some of the big amateur London clubs dwarfed the midlands club, Tooting & Mitcham, Walthamstow, Dulwich etc

then there were the powerful north east clubs like Bishop Auckland and Crook Town

Looking at the midland League it was a mix of FL reserve clubs and smaller non league sides like Grantham, Gainsborough, Kings Lynn, Goole etc, Boston were a bit unique really being a big non league club in that league.
