We've certainly seen better days away from home that's for sure. Today was better than last week at Chester, but it couldn't really have been any worse.

Thankfully, I'm just two short stops before the end of my train journey and will be home very soon.

Still, I'm very glad we've not got a cat!!

Not being negative but Craig hasn’t got a plan b when we are loosing,he seems to stick with his mates and doesn’t seem to see things that others see .Whats with all the backroom staff they all seem to give out different instructions

I couldn`t see the point of only having two strikers up front who were outnumbered too often Only when Jake came on did we show any urgency and throw more people forward. On another tack, did anyone notice Crook being put under constant pressure during their set pieces? There was no help from his defenders. Also, there was a lot of shoving and timewasting tactics from Southport. If we had retaliated, there would have been been more sendings off. Clearly, the Southport management had done their homework on us and it worked. All credit to them. Shiels was a shadow of his normal self which was understandable after a lengthy lay off. Garner played his socks off and kept going to the very end.

I think the biggest shame is that BUFC could only name 4 substitutes. Surely it was opportunity to name a Youth Team player on the bench for the experience?

Or even a sub goalie just incase. Didn't notice, but did GSK travel with the squad to Chester & Southport?

It would have been but it comes down to getting forms done and ratified in time.

Seems like the Southport manager thought the result flattered them. Check out the early part of his post match interview here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8w_a5i53xWY

A lot of the youth team play for other local sides on a Saturday, too.
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.

Just watched the manager speaking to Craig about Saturday.
Reading between the lines could be a few departures in the near future.
Seems he's not happy with some of the defenders.
