Sorry I caught you out on this one young chubbs. I’m a Farmer Dan fan, that most likely was well before your time as a BUFC fan.

I've still got some copies of FBYF. Satire at it's best.

My three favourite things, satire, sarcasm and sausages.  ;)

So are you talking about the old Fanzine mag, if so l do remember it , that would be back in 80s when I started supporting Boston, I think it was the 83/84 season.
See l am not that young as youngchubby69 would lead you to believe .
I don't remember many of those magazines, but one did stick in my mind, It was an aerial photo of York Street and the caption said was something like this.
"A bird's eye view of a Martin Hardy clearance"
It made me chuckle at the time.

According to CE the trialists failed to impress him against Basford, and did themselves no favours.
He will be fielding much stronger teams in the rest of the game's.

Having acquired a full set of the fanzines, and with Richard Smith's permission, I put a few FBYF bits up on impsTALK a few years back. They're still there...

A bit worrying  really that he has played no part yet, is he still with the us or not.
Perhaps someone  could shed some light on this.

You would think that all the sqaud would be playing some part now.
Do you think CE has arranged these friendlies in these locations to have a look at trialists from different regions.
The home game this weekend should be interesting to see what team he puts out.

Not me, all I would say of concern with him is that he never truly seems 2 settle anywhere? Remember that friendly was it a couple of seasons back when he scored that interesting hat Rick against us? Didn't the omps then sell him 2 scunny? Think that may have been only the start of a Johnny merry-go-round who knows?? Surely Craig will have laid down the law??

Margetts took part in the warm up and then was sat on the bench watching, probably don't want to rush him and with trialists you have the luxury of building his fitness up more gradually and can give the trialists a good go rather than the odd 10 minutes. Expect a signing tomorrow too from what Elliott said to us

The forward line was missing tonight no Rollins and Walker either.
