articles for wider circulation
« on: January 31, 2011, 10:15:52 AM »
Some folk on here say forget the past. But I like the idea of making sure the that if the national press plan on doing 'plucky non League club' articles, they report the truth.
Here's a good one which perhaps should be circulated wider:

Perhaps we should circulate our own Boston fans press release?

That is an excellent piece. I wouldn't have been able to write something like that without flying into a rage and becoming very biased and vitriolic.

There are a few Boston fans who dislike Evans and sadly they are the minority which are shouting the loudest!
A lot of Boston fans still appreciate what Steve Evans did for Boston United, we was on the verge of oblivion before the saviour arrived, he performed miracles with our little club and that is why he was known by the name ‘Messiah’.
Of course Mr. Evans is like Marmite you either love him or hate him, but his pedigree in management will see him manage a premiership club one day.
Steve Evans brought good times, excitement and got the town of Boston buzzing, this Pilgrim wishes Steve and his Crawley team all the best.

Now that is entertainment. Pass me a snippit like that each match and it be well worth 11 pound even if the team dont turn up it still worth it. Pure entertainment.

 When Evans came to Boston the club were not on the point of oblivion , they were in the red to the tune of £100,000 K  according to reports . When EVANS LEFT THE CLUB WAS ON THE POINT OF OBLIVION being £3.5 millon in debt and its short term reputation in tatters.  What was Evans achievements in this time ?   1.  promotion to the Conference.  2 . promotion to the League 1.  These both have to be discounted as niether were within the rules of the FA OR  HMRC (CHEATING ).   
  When Evans and his cronies walked out they had effectivly booked us demotion to step 3 of the pyrimid ,  Now can anyone explain how bringing the club into disrepute and at the same time leaving the club 1 step further down the pyrimid at the cost of £3.5 million can be termed a success.

"The sad thing about this whole story," Bean said, "is that at the greatest moment in Boston's history, one man did so much to damage the club's reputation. In everything that went wrong at the club, Steve Evans was the common denominator."

And what are the FA doing about it? Letting him continue! Pity Mr Bean doesn't have the same job now

The sad thing is there are still some, not many but still some that believe that. Was talking to someone today who said they'd have Evans back. They weren't interested in anything I said in how he did it but just said he "got us into the league" and that he's going to do it for Crawley. F*cking short-sighted some people  >:(

Read the paragraph that starts: "E---s, understandably, was not keen on ancient history being raked up."

Sorry? when?
