If I remember correctly, I think we trained in the Sheffield area in the 70's
Never keep up with the Joneses, drag them down to your level ...............it's cheaper.

I don't know Ted ,  a bit before my time as a fan.
Haven't we historically signed players from up north during the seventies and eighties, perhaps they trained somewhere near the A1.
But traveling costs were much cheaper then, and no stupid shift patterns to work.

In the 90s we trained near Newark.

Didn't AM say that the new training ground was near the M1 corridor, if most of the players are Midlands based,it would make sense to me, and looking at some of the players that he has signed so far they must come from that catchment area.
After all they only play at York Street and probably car share etc on match day's, it's more important to be close to the training ground than the clubs home ground.
I am only talking from mine own experiences, if you were training near to Boston and living in Mansfield or Birmingham you wouldn't sign for Boston.
Just my opinion.

I agree chubby ,  better catchment area for players ,  easier to attract players as they will only have to travel to  Boston once a fortnight .

I see Kyle Dixon is on trial at Trinity, who would have thought he would need a trial to get in a NN team,and also Gatteris there too.

Dixon wasn't good enough in his final few months at BUFC, IMO.
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.

Such a shame as well, another lad who showed so much promise.
Didn't he go to Telfor or Corby, something like that.
They sat him on the bench and then he came back,or perhaps I am barking up the wrong tree ??

I think the Defence and midfield looks covered now, but looking at the team list today, I still think we are short of a couple of strikers/ wingers /forwards.
We only have 3 according to the BUFC website,
Gregg is still in rehab, that's a concern.
Hawley is a coach and not to be rude, he ain't no spring chicken.
That only leaves one out and out striker, if he gets injured we are in the pooh pooh.
Let's hope we get some more in, goals win games after all.

Yes Ted a good hungry striker looking to impress.
No harm at looking what Lincoln could offer.

Think we'll be relatively solid this season... but if we could nab a striker who ends up with 20-25 or more, then it could propel us from upper midtable to well inside top 7.
Hope we  can get someone and that we don't end up regretting a host of 1-1 draws where we lack cutting edge to finish sides off before conceding. A bit like Stockport last year

There'll be plenty of p155ed-off and out-of-favour players at Mansfield about three weeks into the season, so if we hold our nose....

As it stands we cannot rule out the chance of Jay Rollins staying ,  if he gets no acceptable offers elsewhere .
