It’s always funny to revisit predictions – especially mine, which are traditionally terrible. A quick glance at last year’s New Year issue of The Pilgrim saw Terrace Chatter eagerly looking ahead to what it hoped would be a rather more enjoyable year than the last. “Frankly, 2017 will not be a year that lingers long […]

Christmas Day is a bit like being at an airport, or a beach bar in the Canary Islands: it’s one of the few occasions that you don’t feel remotely guilty about drinking alcohol before midday. And if tradition dictates you should be snoring loudly by the time the Queen pops up to deliver her annual […]
I can’t say I really enjoyed the last time I watched Boston play York back in March. It was raining, there was no roof on the terrace, and I dropped my half-time grub on the floor – although the floor was probably the best place for it given it looked like someone had drop-kicked a […]
Such was the drama of the occasion you didn’t notice it on the day, and it’s tricky to spot on the fuzzy YouTube footage, but Boston United’s faint hopes of remaining a Football League club were actually killed off by a rabona.
Since you probably got bored of my gushing eulogising over the Jay Rollins winner against North Ferriby, it’s quite possible you missed me concluding my column in last week’s edition with a flippant comment about the last time anyone enjoying the FA Cup around here being around 1996.
Sometimes it’s the little things that really thrill you; the little nuances that went unnoticed the first time around. It might be the joke in a film you finally got on the second viewing, or a song on an album you came to appreciate years later. Or maybe the mini garlic kievs you only discovered […]
Media interviews done, Adam Murray ambled back to the dugout at FC United’s Broadhurst Park and sat alone with his thoughts for a moment. As his players warmed down on the empty pitch, the United manager stretched out on the bench and gazed out into the distance in a contemplative trance, a bit like a […]
No sooner had Lincoln City tweeted an appeal last week for information about the whereabouts of some stolen GPS tracking vests than they were inundated with snarky replies pointing out that there shouldn’t be anything easier to track down than a vest equipped with GPS.
I’m not sure the offer of a lift to Tamworth has ever cheered anyone up as much as it did me late Saturday afternoon as I trundled through the Nottinghamshire countryside, returning from a Boston United match that never happened.
It’s hard to figure out if the EU’s decision to ban roaming charges a couple of months ago is going to end up being a blessing or a curse. Before the ban, refusing to fork out a month’s salary for a modest data bundle on holiday placed you in a kind of internet quarantine (on […]
Once upon a time it was possible to stroll along to the first game of a new football season in a state of optimistic ignorance, high on the joys of summer and that first pint from the bar. The average supporter really had no idea what the new season was going to bring, or whether […]
