Terrace Chatter: Boston v Alfreton, 26 December 2020
Can I just shock you? I didn’t enjoy 2020. Who did? Anyone? No, didn’t think so. Piers Corbyn aside, I reckon most of us have endured a miserable twelve months, either dodging police while on illegal walks in the Peak District or trapped indoors watching Homes Under The Hammer and wondering if the delivery driver […]
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Chorley, 2 December 2020
Seven years ago, Boston United chairman David Newton and vice-chairman Neil Kempster took to the stage at a packed fans’ forum in the Pilgrim Lounge and revealed, to widespread astonishment, their plans for a new stadium and community complex, along with a huge commercial and residential development that would completely transform a part of Wyberton […]
Terrace Chatter: Play-off Final v Altrincham, 01 August 2020
Well, this is it. There is no doubt this time. No “what ifs”. No “maybes”. No strange permutations to consider, or global pandemics. This time it’s for real. Today’s match will be the last ever game of football to be staged at York Street.
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Ashton
Two years ago, on the final day of the 2016/2017 season, long-time and long-suffering Boston supporter Adam Upsall turned around on the terrace at Curzon Ashton and admitted the reason he’d made the trip that day was to ensure the season was indeed over.
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Darlington
Somewhere in the bottom of the wardrobe is an old band t-shirt I picked up at a music festival many years ago. It’s old and faded, now more of a dirty pink then bright red, but I’ve kept it because I still harbour hopes of one way wearing it again and proudly displaying my love […]
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Curzon Ashton
Afternoon and welcome along to the Jakemans Stadium for this afternoon’s game against Curzon Ashton – a club renowned for their impressive statue, cheap pints, cup runs and posh in-pitch sprinklers. Show offs.
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Telford
It’s the hope that kills you, the saying goes. If only it were that simple. Hope doesn’t always slay its enemies cleanly, or fairly. Sometimes, hope is the malicious, Machiavellian villain lurking in the shadows, waiting for the right moment to sidle up beside you and whisper bone-chilling words in your ear before getting to […]
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Chorley
It was the weekend that proved that football is verging on anarchy. No matter where you looked, chaos reigned.
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Stockport
Whisper it quietly, but I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Stockport. Maybe it’s that 4-1 win there a few years back, or the fact trips there invariably involve decent beer and bad trains, the two staples of any enjoyable away day. Or maybe it’s just the fact that they’re a big […]
Terrace Chatter: Boston v FC United
To be completely honest, Terrace Chatter has absolutely no idea if you’ll be reading these notes this Saturday or on some random Tuesday night in the middle of April. At the time of writing the weather forecast appears to consist entirely of dire predictions of impending catastrophe: a dusting of snow on the hills, a […]
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Leamington
Okay. Mea culpa. I did not see that result at Kidderminster coming. I’d have been happy with a draw, but given our recent visits to Aggborough (and thanks to fellow columnist Christian James for the depressing stats about those), not to mention being the instinctive pessimist that I am, I suspected the best we could […]
Terrace Chatter: Boston v Altrincham
Congratulations everyone! You survived Christmas, you made it through Jools’ Annual Hootenanny – and all the mince pies have now been eaten. Your reward for all this epic endeavour is the first home game of 2019, a game which sees the Pilgrims up against old adversaries Altrincham – although the Boston side Alty will be […]
