The only problem with late signings is that new players need time to gel together and practise set pieces, etc If we have a poor start to next season, I can foresee the moaning fans to come out of their shells and criticise CE. Who would be a manager?

Can’t say I am overly worried yet but we have so much that detracts players from signing for us,  finances and geography being the two that stand out. I am sure Craig will get the team sorted I just hope it isn’t substantially weaker than the one we had at the end of the season.

Also think we should scrap all the end of season awards, seems difficult to hold onto the winners of them lol.

End of season awards are like manager of the month awards, it all goes tits up.
 JK and AH must of had a good idea that neither of them would re sign. Yet they were gushing with appreciation for the club and the loyal supporters, they were already looking forward to the next season. Just a shame they probably knew the next season was not going be at Boston.  ;)

I think you are spot on with that comment, AE & JK were probably straight on the phone as they got the chance to their agent, saying get me a good deal away from Boston because I am fantastic as I have got  a trophy that says so.
All those young supporters clapping and cheering for those two singing there names, they were both heartless and two faced, knowing that they were going to leave.
Give the awards back I say, as they obviously mean nothing to them.
I will not wish both of them well, why should l they were paid to do a job, which they managed to do in the end but only when Craig arrived, until then they were below average, as the table never lies.

You seem to have a chip on your shoulder with every player that leaves, YC69... cut them some slack. We will replace them.
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.

I remember when some fans were up in arms when we let Tom Batchelor go. Rest easy, there's millions of players out there. Non league football is awash with availability. Loyalty is diminishing everywhere - be it with the supermarkets we shop at to the insurance companies we use for our Motors. Realign your expectations and you'll be more comfortable. It's a revolving door more than ever. Just thank god we only have to sit back and watch and not be out there trying to recruit players to this Lincolnshire backwater :)

Players don't report back to training for another month(ish). Plenty of time!

Player of the season awards relate to the season just gone yc69. That's all. Nowhere does it say in accepting one you've got to stay!

If players move on good luck to em. There's plenty of others and there's more to life than BUFC so try not to take player exits to heart. It'll be ok

I thought I read that training was starting in June - one day a week, increasing to twice weekly in July.]

Think there will soon be some news now the season ticket offer has finished (today). Budget will probably be based on how well initial sales have gone against previous years. Stand by for the influx.

I know it's a chicken and egg situation, but a few exciting early signings might have helped sell more season tickets!
