Bostongate Reactions
by Hardy on 20/07/2002

We look at the reactions following yesterdays FA verdict on the Bostongate saga. Most right minded football fans are displaying anger and disbelief at the penalty given.

Bostongate reaction
It seems that most of the world of football has an opinion on the aftermath of the FA's ludicrous decision to fine Boston United 100,000 and dock them 4 points for the coming season.

Boston United pleaded guilty to the 6 charges faced by the club around false details in players contracts. The FA seem to have signalled that they viewed the offenses as not just financial irregularities by imposing the points deduction, yet have applied that to the coming season, leaving the Pilgrims Conference Champions and promoted to the Football League.

Despite the view from most of the football world that Boston have got away with it, Pilgrims Chairman Des Wood is set to appeal against the severity of the punishment.

The message board at this site (here) has many posts from fans of all sorts of clubs offering their sympathy on the situation, including posts from Hartlepool United fans who stayed in the Third Division when Chesterfield were only docked 9 points a couple of seasons ago.

The Confguide forum (here) is flooded with posts showing the disgust of most Conference fans with the penalty.

On TalkSport's Breakfast Show this morning Brazil and Parry were actually in agreement for once, both stating that the FA's decision was a farce and that the signal it sends out to potential wrong-doers in the game is appalling.

Meanwhile the town of Boston apparently partied last night. Reactions on the Pilgrims Patter mostly involve crowing, with seemingly very few Boston fans able to see that they have been very, very lucky. Some are even suggesting that Steve Evans, found guilty of four of the eight charges he faced at the hearing, with verdicts on the other four and penalty held over, should keep his job as manager. Frankly, Evans and the Boston fans probably deserve each other.

Most Daggers fans seem to be resigned to the situation and now trying to look forward to the new season which kicks off with a home game against Leigh RMI on August 17th. Garry Hill's team won the first friendly of the season last night 3-1 at Bideford Town. At least we are back to kicking a ball now.

Mr Bean to quit?
A report in today's Sun (here) says that FA disciplinary chief Graham Bean is ready to quit after Boston were allowed to keep their place in the Nationwide League.

Bean is one man who ought to know exactly what went on at York Street as he led the team from the FA Compliance Unit that spent one month looking at affairs at the club. Quoting a close friend of Bean's the report says that he feels "let down by the system" following yesterdays punishment. It goes on to say "What's the point of him going to great lengths to prove a club is corrupt if this is the outcome? He's had enough. It's a complete joke. The FA pretend they want to clean up the game but, deep down, they couldn't care less."
