The B-Ark / Blyth[H]
« on: April 03, 2022, 12:06:36 AM »
It seems apathy has taken over. I'm not surprised. After the York win I thought things were looking up.WRONG. We were lucky to get away with 2-1 at Darlington[ no comments passed on this forum by people who went]. Today, as usual this season, in open play we couldn't score. In 3 hours this season against Blyth, we have managed a comical own-goal and an injury time equalizer at home. I had planned to go to Curzon next Saturday[overall cost £70+], but unless a radical improvement at Chorley happens, I won't bother.

Three hours after the final whistle, and no posts?

The B-Ark / Professor Van Tam
« on: February 24, 2021, 08:18:43 PM »
Did anyone see Prof. Van Tam On This Morning? He was " spot-on" with the Covid questions and amazingly got Piers Morgan to say sorry for interrupting him! The end of the interview was fantastic where he declared he was considering having a BUFC tattoo on his "deltoid" muscle. Susanna Reid  was impressed, so was Lorraine Kelly. This guy is special.

The B-Ark / Random Thoughts....
« on: January 16, 2021, 09:22:31 PM »
1. Jake Wright is back...

 Mixed up for me. I don't think he's a natural goalscorer, a predator. but he has a real "tick-box" going for him. He REALLY annoys defenders, I love that.

2. Tom Platt has done a hamstring...

  Bad news. I have previously said that our squad could be halved by the end of January.  But continued disruption of the fixtures has meant less games. Platt does a LOT more running than other players. When I look at the fixture pile-up for February, I get that "sinking feeling.

3. Darlington Away...

 I don't want to hear CE singing the praises of the officials of THAT club before we play them again.
 They are two-faced, back-stabbing liars. And if any of their players are badly injured, leave it to the home team to sort out.

 To all Pilgrims, where ever you are, I wish you well. Stay indoors and invent your own cocktails.

The B-Ark / Chester[HOME]
« on: December 11, 2020, 09:18:05 PM »
 Big game tomorrow. If we beat them we're on level points with 3 games in hand. Remember when we beat them 3-2 a few years ago? Jason Lee was the gaffer and we were 3-0 up. I was on another planet.
 I know CE respects and admires all the management teams of every opposing team. I don't. If we beat Chester tomorrow, I will be overjoyed at the prospect of two certain individuals facing a pointless journey home.
 When are the Conference suits going to make a decision about Darlington? I smell a big rat. Prove me wrong.


The B-Ark / Altrincham Play-Off Final..
« on: August 01, 2020, 12:27:46 AM »
I am getting a little "jumpy". God Bless all our lads tomorrow afternoon. When we were demoted  from the EFL in 2007 I spent the day on the M6 in a broken down van. If we win tomorrow we finally get to compete in the Conference. If we lose I will still look forward to a visit to our new ground in the Conference North.

Boston till I die.


The B-Ark / Kidderminster Away...

Attention joshb!

I am not a happy bunny. I have gone down with a flu bug. Last 3 days in bed, getting up for food. Have a pint for me in Weavers tomorrow. Fingers crossed for a 2-1 win like last season.
All the best.

The B-Ark / Stamford FA Cup Away
« on: September 20, 2019, 08:39:09 PM »
Before a ball is kicked, I want to be clear to everyone. Over the last 15 years our performances in the FA cup have been putrid. Peterborough Sports last season was the latest in a long line of betrayal. I never cease to hear of a "tight dressing room" and "we want to win every game". When it comes to the FA Cup, that has been a lie. I want us to win tomorrow, are this season's squad that bothered?

The B-Ark / AFC Fy£de....
« on: May 10, 2019, 08:46:33 PM »
I am still p%^s*n£ myself. I went to Fylde the day we lost 9-2 and the smell in the air of, "We are the Future"[ Goose-stepping optional]. I haven't got a clue how to transfer you but go to the Birmingham Evening Mail web-site. You will find an article about their accountant. It is priceless. Make sure you relieve yourself before viewing.


The B-Ark / Fixtures for Saturday...Raised Eyebrows.
« on: April 03, 2019, 07:39:08 PM »
I know I stated if we didn't win at York, then the play-offs were history. Then I had a casual glance at Saturday's fixtures. Telford[6 pts ahead] are away at Chorley. Kiddy are at home to Bradford PA and Chester are away to Nunny, who last week got a bonkers 4-0 away win at FCUtd. Am I deluded in thinking if results go our way at 4:50PM, it's time to put the rose-tinted specs on?

The B-Ark / York [Away]
« on: March 16, 2019, 08:32:55 PM »
 I am going to York City [A]. I am making a week-end of it with 'er indoors['er outdoors on this occasion]. My associate joshb and his pals warned me at Kiddy that the amenities at the Away end were bad. Therefore I will park our collective posteriors in the main stand.   If said associates are in the Club bar before the game, I will readily buy them a beer. If we don't win at York, I think the play-offs are out of reach.


The B-Ark / Chester Away...
« on: February 13, 2019, 08:37:05 PM »
I am going on Saturday. If joshb and his pals see this, I am going straight to the club bar in the main stand. I have checked with Chester and Boston fans are welcome. The ground is on the S/W edge of town, about 2.5 miles from the station. You get the 10A bus to Bumpers Lane. It's 1/2 mile walk to the ground. Pies and hot food on sale at the bar. See you there.
