Just got home from watching the shambles that was Boston United tonight.  The only consolation was that it wasn't far to travel.  Anyone would think we played to lose tonight.  We were beaten by a better side in Quorn and good luck to them in the next round - although it would hardly have been a money spinner for us!  It's hard to think this is the same team which took Nantwich apart only 10 days ago.  The defeat at Stocksbridge could be put down to oh well you can't win them all and it's only another blip.  Then Saturday's performance and now tonight's abysmal display.  So it's what some people on here wanted - we can concentrate on the league now - but what about the hardy supporters who turn up week in week out.  To turn out rubbish like the last 3 games is totally unacceptable and something needs to be done and quickly.  Our problem has been scoring - the defence of late has been sound - but tonight for 2 of the goals they were all over the place.  Lets be fair there is nearly 2 leagues difference between the 2 teams playing tonight.  We should have finished the job on Saturday and tonight having gone 1-0 up we shouldn't have given 3 goals away the way we did.  As previously said many will be happy we lost tonight (of that's how it seems) so we can concentrate on the league.  Lets hope this is correct starting with what looks a dodgy game on Saturday against North Ferriby.  Still I'll be there, as usual.  If you don't turn out to support your team you really don't have any cause to complain do you.  Rant over I'll leave it to the experts on here to dissect the game tonight.

We've only got a thin squad so maybe all is not lost with this result, we know we would have had to then get through Vauxhall Motors (hardly a big pull) before we could get anywhere near anything resembling a decent tie so like others, it is disappointing but not overly upsetting.

It just sets our sights firmly on one goal.... POSITION 1, UNIBOND PREMIER.
So many people have come and gone, their faces fade as the years go by.
Yet I still recall as I wander on, as clear as the sun in the summer sky.

Let's face it - it's a bad result. Yes, let's concentrate on the league, but for crying out loud - beaten by Quorn?!!!

Just got home. Best side won but I shouldn't be saying that. They outplayed us. Saying we can now concentrate on the league is a kop out from facing the facts.We virtually had the same team on the pitch that has given us some good results but for the last three games have been terrible. Our defence, despite losing tonight is still a good one. The midfield aren't too bad either but our forward line needs a lot of attention. I know we all have our favourites but get rid of MS, DD and Newsham and start again. We have no one with that bit of sparkle, that bit of imagination that even Scott  mentioned after Saturdays game. Mr Newton deserves better than this. Perhaps its Mr Angry speaking after seeing tonights game and I know I'll get some flack but our forwards are not delivering the goods, they didn't on Saturday and they didn't tonight. Against the Odds is right. Sometimes rose tinted spectacles need cleaning.
Perhaps I'll feel better in the morning with a change of heart just like Mr Newton did a few weeks ago. Who would question him after these performances if he had another change of heart. I wouldn't. By the way, I call him Mr Newton and not David Newton out of respect for what he has done at the club. If you hadn't noticed I'm feeling pretty miffed.

 I see from the Unibond official results that Clarky was on the score sheet again against
 his old club Stamford tonight in Div1 South, I do believe thats 3 in 5 appearances for
 them. If things continue to go well on his loan move surely the Management will at
 least consider bringing him back into the fold if things don't improve with what we have
 presently.I am not wishing to pass comment that he could or would be the spark that
 Scott refers to but, at least give the guy an opportunity and a run of games to show
 what he could be capable of, the same would also apply to other members of the squad.

Ricky Miller and Lee Beeson also both on the score sheet last night in the same game as Jamie.

Agree with the comments about tonight's and recent poor performances, can't believe that's the same team on the pitch as at Nantwich!

  Was quite stunned last night when some muppet/so called Boston supporter decided to come over to Rob Scott and call him a s*** and embarassement near the end of the game. People like that shouldn't bother attending, part of being a supporter is sticking with your team when things are going wrong.No one was more gutted than me walking out that ground last night but I don't start abusing people who are doing a good job.  Is third in the league an embarassement?

Disgrace to hear that, i hope Scott punched him in the face

Both team and managers are to blame for such a piss poor performance.  I hope the Chestnuts gave the managers as much of a rollicking as what the players should receive.

And I don't buy into this focus on the league position only - not that we have much fecking choice now - either!  We should be capabale of maintain a cup run and a decent league position by now - clearly we are not and things still need addressing.  Being dumped out of both cups by lowere league teams cannot do much for morale in my opinion.

Our defence, despite losing tonight is still a good one. The midfield aren't too bad either but our forward line needs a lot of attention. I know we all have our favourites but get rid of MS, DD and Newsham and start again.
I don't understand why people single out players and think that replacing 1 or 2 will miraculously make results better. This is still the same team that has took on Nantwich, BPA and Guiseley in their own back yard and outplayed all 3. These are 3 of the best teams in this league.

Last night the defence was shocking, all 3 goals being down to inept defending and poor goalkeeping. The midfield again lacked any quality to open up a team who put men behind the ball so quite how you can defend these and attack the forward line I find bizarre. I'm not saying we where good going forward but 1 thing about this team is it is a team with no star players, they win as a team and take the plaudits and lose as a team and take the criticism.

Anyone who's says that doesn't matter as it's only the Trophy and we should concentrate on the league...ffs it's your team it SHOULD hurt when you lose whatever the competition. I know it hurt like hell to watch us be outplayed by a team that quite frankly weren't much better than Boston Town, to then come home and read garbage like that from people that where not there makes my blood boil. This team is really starting to frustrate me like everyone else, we seem to beat the quality teams but lose to the dross, a little harsh on Quorn who fully deserved their win but in comparison to teams we have beaten that is exactly what they are.

At home against Quorn our strikers couldn't finish their dinner which cost us and away from home our defence was obviously the problem. There is no way you should go to a team at the bottom half of the division below, SCORE 2 GOALS, and STILL lose!! That is a joke! The whole team is to blame not individual players.

Saying that Cup upsets happen and this year we have been the ones on the recieving end - simple. Lets just hope the squad learn and react from this.

At the end of the day the league is what we want so not having distractions from cup competitions can only enhance our chances of getting automatic promotion.

Onwards and upwards!!!

Probably one of those who still thinks Evans 'did a great job'........like the brain dead moron who I overheard telling his mate the other week..... those idiots disgust me, they're not Boston or football fans.

Scott and Hurst are on a learning curve, they make mistakes but a top 5 league finish will do fine.......so long as we either win the league or win the play off.
