I believe that's how we also describe our model, to be fair...

still poncey :) 
bit like referring to our coalman as being highly involved in mineral distribution....
any way I'll take a helicopter view,  then run it up the flag pole to see who salutes and get back to you  :)

Not sure what other words you'd use to describe it!

Ha! Fair. Then again David Newton says himself that Boston run themselves as much like a full-time club as possible without actually being full-time, but what that means in reality is I think an extra training session a week??

We train Monday and Thursday nights. Used to be Tuesday and Thursday, but we'd lose a session if we had a midweek game - no longer the case, unless it's at BPA on a Monday!
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.

I think most full time outfits train a few hours most days. Should in theory make a big difference.

Sums up what is wrong about the game - too much money and not necessary being spent wisely. Regional Non-League Teams going full-time? Semi-professional is totally fine for our level of football!

Farmer: "I've got 100 cows."
AP: "Well, I've got 104 friends!"

Anyone know how many are full time in our league?
Never keep up with the Joneses, drag them down to your level ...............it's cheaper.

Off the top of my head it's York, Fylde, Gateshead(?) and Kidderminster, with Gloucester now moving to their "hybrid" system.

Gateshead definitely are. My mate supports them. He was surprised to learn we wasn't. He and some fellow Gateshead fans were under the impression we were full time. Thanks for the info.
