Would like to have seen him be given a chance nevertheless. Next thing you know, players are then moved on without getting a chance. Don't always understand the thinking behind this, I'm afraid.

Maybe it's part of the improved scouting infrastructure. Goes out on loan, is watched and in some cases a recommendation is made to move the individual on.

There is a seated stand that runs along the side from which the match was videoed.

And Nicky was anonymous much to my relief

Beg to differ, thought he was excellent for 75 mins, more a withdrawn wide midfielder than winger now, although faded a bit in the closing stages. One volleyed 50 yard diagonal pass in the first half a highlight. Luca on the other hand looked ponderous and wouldve struggled against Hulme.

Nicky set up their equaliser. Agree with the above entirely.

Yes I agree about the equaliser. I wasn't knocking Nicky but given our poor approach to defence I was worried that he might use his talent to mesmorise the defence before sticking the ball in the net. I agree about Luca, I didn't even notice he was playing. It must be the hair cut.

A draw would have been OK. Our first goal was a pinball effort. Their second goal was a waltz through from midfield yet again. JJ had some lucky ricochets before he scored but nothing ventured nothing gained.  Max's goal was just opportunist. We just need to believe.
BPA could have gone second today and we were better than them.

I'm sure he could still score with his eyes closed

I'm glad they haven't followed an already existent team. It would be the equivalent of a cuckoo's egg in the nest. The incomers would have outnumbered any local team's original supporters and the club would have lost it's identity.

Good luck to them.

Too many avoidable screw ups in my opinion. I was hoping for playoffs but I'm resigned to midtable. We have the talent but also lose focus at times.

I am sure i can remember back possibly in 1981, the first team playing a league  game on a Saturday afternoon, at the same time as the reserve team playing a CSC semi final. Not sure if anyone can confirm this?

That must have been confusing. Did they use different coloured balls?

Some might have an alternative agenda but I'm not looking for an opportunity to bash the club. We were second best during the first half which left me hoping for a 0-0 draw at half time. In the second half they got therir lead and we never looked like we would be able to pull it back. The referee didn't help our cause but Boston always deserved the points.

It was a bitter pill to take but it is the first game out of five where we were outplayed.

Whoops. Don't know where Sinclair came from. Yes, I meant Daniels.

We wern't at the races. With the exception of Jordan Hulme it did look like 2016 -17. Too many players being bullied, not challenging for the ball and not pressuring the opposition when they have possession. I was disgusted that sinclair spent the whole of half time chatting with his mate on the opposition but then he was the only player to have a real effort on goal. I'm glad I'm away for the next two weeks.

I agree. I used to go to the rugby at Edgeley Park and that's exactly what they did.

Is Whatsapp still going? I've had nothing  from Alty since one o'clock on the day of the leamington game.

If you keep viewing after the highlights and Brian's chat with Neil Sorvel, there is a very interesting interview by Southport's media with Liam Watson after their 4-0 defeat at Chorley. Safe to say he doesn't hold back. Absolutely rips into the players...

It's shades of us two seasons ago. He's stuffed basically. Anybody decent is already signed up. A rant like that will result in him losing the dressing room. Cue the fitting of the revolving door!
