    Our game was postponed because Spennymoor's coach broke down and they were "unable to reach the ground in a reasonable time frame".

    I'm not sure what the National League means by "a reasonable time frame". The game was called off at 1:55pm when they were at Doncaster, only about an hour and half from Boston once they got going. Why not just wait for them to get to Boston and play the game then, even if that was in the evening? They declined BUFC's offer to send a couple of minibuses to pick them up, and even to swap with their supporters' coach on its way down.

    Presumably this is completely independent of Spennymoor "waiting on the fitness of a handful of players" in their match preview...

    Great to watch Maidenhead get their first ever win in The Conference,they made it hard for themselves letting in a late goal but deserved their 2-1 win against Hartlepool with Dave Tarpey MOTM :clap:

    Sorry Maidstone, you deserved something from today's game but the football gods were clearly against you. We were lucky to take 3 points and clearly a long way from being a well organised side. I'm not surprised in view of our recent history so it is a bit encouraging to get a couple of good results whilst the engine is still spluttering. I expect us to get bugger all at Bromley who will probably do a Sutton on us (all over us like a rash) and prevent any kind of passing football. They are probably well practiced at it, we aren't. Add in the smaller plastic pitch (no space) and it's hard to see us doing anything.

    F*cking hell we are just so shite. Two defeats and two goals scored in three matches, this is going to be a long hard season.

    Fair play to Sutton but we weren't at the races at all! Sutton made it difficult for us to play our passing game and we had no answer to that :(

    FO Burg ;)

    They screwed us down too. I think we made the mistake by trying to press them, they were very good at crowded/no space defending and quite good at long ball counter-attacking. Maybe teams should play deeper and force them to come out?

    They're definitely set up to counter attack and make things difficult for teams that like to dominate possession. It would be interesting to see how they'd get on if a team allowed them to have the ball or like you say forced them to come out. Wouldn't be surprised at all if they take more points off the so-called 'fancied' teams this season

    Well, that was nice. Pretty much a home game, as nearly 900 of the 1100 attendance were away fans.

    Good 5-0 win, plenty to be confident about for this Tuesday's game against the in-form Darlington. Still a couple of question marks over the defending at time, and now Bencharif has a suspension means that any understanding between our defenders may suffer.

    Bradford Park Avenue's ground is worse than ours, and that's something I never thought I'd say. Athletics track around the pitch, grassy bank for sit on, with some slabs of concrete for terracing or seats (glad it was a somewhat decent day with the weather). Good idea getting the beer tent erected for the game though. Probably got a fair few quid in the coffers from that.
