Martin Allen will find himself back at Barnet in a couple of years. He always returns!
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.

Basford United have had a few promotions in recent seasons under Martin Carruthers as manager and Mark Clifford as first team coach. Up and coming and also ex Pilgrims - wonder if they might apply?

Both popular and respected at Boston ,  would be worthy of consideration I would have thought .

Suggestions beginning to roll in but none seem to be coming from those most vociferous in he demand for DGs removal ,  were this people genuinely interested in the football aspect ?

Very big budget at Basford however

Our Chairman says he wants the club to progress ,  seeing there is getting more teams turning full-time  in this league we will need an increase in budget to stand still .    I think the league has now got to the point that the promotion places will be dominated by F/T teams .    Looks as though the new manager may get an increased budget .

Ok for the pedantic. A bigger budget than the teams around

We're not going to be rich, so our new gaffer needs to find a way to win without money. Dennis showed that it's possible, but the league is much tougher than it was 12 months ago. Even so, it's not impossible. Hard, yes. Impossible? No.

I'm fine with that: most of the time the cashed-up teams run out of dollar and end up tumbling back down. In some ways it's better for us, if you take a long term view.

and for most its likely they will fail. Rushden are a perfect example of a hobby club whose owner got fed up in the end. however, Burton prove it can be done with a long term plan that's properly executed. Ferriby are a shining example of what not to do, only shame is we'll have to suffer them again soon by the look of it.
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.

John Bunyan, 1684

Looked on BUFC F/B tonight and Andy was moaning (yes really  :) on about a deletion of his on there .   What he did confirm was that
Greene under achieved the last 3 seasons .   Quite a claim considering we have not had three consecutive top six finishes for decades .
Unless Andy can point to the facts that prove otherwise .    To my knowledge he has not revealed his master plan to take the Pilgrims forward , nor revealed the "realistic" budget he claimed Greene had.

31.1% win rate,  mmmmm,  will that be good enough for our moaners who are demanding at least a 50% win rate ?  ::)

Seems to me that green hats mate is the magic oracle.

Pity all he does is criticise others especially me and Andy Butler who is one of the most committed supporters there is for the club by the way. It would be nice if GHM came up with some suggestions on the way forward instead of slagging of anybody who has an opinion that does not coincide with his own.

Because of illness I have not been able to attend matches this year despite still getting my regular season ticket, so I cannot express a view on the players brought into the club this year, although sitting on the verge of relegation some of them are clearly not good enough unless its the way they were managed of course!!

I vowed not to respond to comments that have been made against me, but I am getting fed up with it, so come on Pete lets have some constructive views on the way forward instead of all the negative criticism you seem to vent at the likes of me. You never know I might respond

Could John Schofeild and Paul Cavell be the answer.
