Firstly thanks for adding me.

Me and my kids having moved into the area (from staffs) have followed utd for last few seasons, on the whole boston a very good side, well managed and always on the edge of promotion....until we lost all those players last season.

Went to every home game this season and the replacements simply dont cut it, i think greene has been desperate, even playing uknown spaniards that only got into the side as they were potential stars, but proved to flop.

Dont get me wrong i dont think greene is perfect, but hes not been able to replace the players that moved on to higher league sides and thats the problem, and this can only be blamed on the budget set by the chairman.  used to live in and support hednesford town and they went the same way, relegation after no player investment.

Personally, my view is, either the chairman starts spending money on players or risk relegation.

Looking at the predictions most people expected a loss today, although a 7 goal margin is embarrassing  >:(
We were ahead of the league leaders briefly, and scored 2 goals away from home.  A disaster defensively, and going with 3 across the back didn't help matters when we should have parked the bus.
I doubt there's any spare money with the ground development being a priority for the foreseeable future  :dan

Just got back and still shaking with rage over the fact Greene is still our manager, I honestly thought he had resigned at half time because he never got his backside off his chair all the second half to encourage or otherwise HIS team, really thought he had done the honorable thing, and to hear from others on here that he was calm and up beat on radio is a total insult. He was enjoying a pint in the bar at half past one obviously having done everything possible to prepare his team however, I am told he didn't travel on the team bus which seems strange but there we are. Our opening goal to put us one up was a big mistake it got Fylde annoyed and they smacked our bottoms for it. I will be going to Witton next week because I love our club but I do hope the manager will have done the right thing by then and buggered off.

strange but did anyone else think when greene gave his after match interview he stumbled 1 or 2 words, almost on the verge of sluring? said to the mrs she said i was imagining it but he didnt sound right to me

It amazes me that people are still trying to talk things up lets face it even a park Sunday side would be embarrassed by losing 9-2!
We only have a handful of players good enough.I'm afraid.
If the stadium gets built I'm sure we would all like to at least be in this division on the opening day.
Something mr green needs to address by either walking away or turning our chairmans pockets out a little more.
I knew in pre season we would struggle and haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise.

I was stood near Greene when he did his interview and he seemed perfectly fine to me.

An absolute disaster of a game for us but with a makeshift defence and a tactical error (in hindsight) playing three at the back, it was always going to be a long day. I don't want to dwell too much on Boston as we all know what the faults are and the injury situation. What I will say is that the Fylde team I saw today was by some distance the best team I have EVER seen at this level. They were absolutely sensational and I think it's important to acknowledge that before ripping into our lads too much. Fylde would easily compete in League Two based on that today. Perhaps even higher. We all know why they have a team that good, and it hurts that we aren't in a position to assemble a similar squad of course, but it was an incredible performance. Well done to them. The bastards.

Also, massive massive kudos to the players for going over and shaking the hands of every fan in the away end too. I'd legged it to the media guys by then so I didn't hear what was discussed, but it was a classy move and would have taken some guts.

He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

Couldnt agree more...we will be lucky to avoid relegation this season, results dont lie.  I just hope mr newton spends some significant player money else risk dropping down.

It doesn't look like he travelled on the wagon either.
