Boston United : Playoff Final match thread
« on: July 25, 2020, 07:57:16 PM »

I saw nothing tonight to make my knees knock.

Of the 5 they scored, two were dodgy penalties (ref was really poor), one was an outrageous fluke, and one came when Gateshead over-committed and left a space the size of the Sahara Desert for their strikers to exploit. The third goal was quality, but that's just one.

Of the 3 they conceded, two were down to poor defending of set pieces, the other from a nailed-on penalty that came under minimal pressure. Their keeper looked really dodgy.

If we play like we did today, and don't get a weird referee, we should be fine.

 Prediction 1-1  until the 89th minute when Tom Peers crashes the Alty forum with a last minute goal that sends us
 Back to the NL

 We are Alty Fc and we are on are way back.

Boston scored five today, they'll be very happy with that. They bummed us five nil early on in the season too. We'll not be that poor again and the way we managed the game at York when two up was a massive step up from the Chester game.

As usual the first goal is important, if we can score that then we're well in.

I would like it if we were at home versus a team we had stuffed five love earlier in the season.

To be honest, Boston was the team I was most worried about coming into the playoffs, they were the form team before the season was suspended. I didn't see too much today to change my view, and like us, they will be sharper with a competitive game under their belts.

Having said that, we look likely to score against anyone at the moment and I think we have a good chance if we can keep it tight at the back.   If.....

The title of this thread certainly has a nice ring to it 👍.We have a good playoff final record (Stoke and Guiseley) so let's hope this continues.

Boston are the best side I've seen us play this season, but we put in a woeful performance that day (difference story perhaps if Hulme had put his early chance away).

Score first, it's ours to lose. Boston score first, it could be a long afternoon on a big pitch.

Boston were my favourites to be promoted at the start of the play offs. I saw them at Southport a little while ago and I was very impressed. They're a well-oiled machine, very physical and not afraid to use a bit of gamesmanship either.
Are they a better footballing team than us? No, I don't think so. Will that get us through? I'm not putting money on it, but I was wrong for the York game so here's to being wrong again.

To be fair, Southport made the majority of their opponents look good this season.

Like us, they'll be more solid than the Gateshead game with the game time under their belts.

We're a very different team to the one that they stuffed earlier in the season, so let's hope they're the ones being complacent - not us.
