It's like we have never been away!
by Hardy on 23/03/2007

During DiggerDagger.com's lay off events at York Street have continued much as normal. Here is the latest.

It's like we have never been away!
The BBC are reporting that Boston United are having yet another crisis after a proposed takeover of the club has fallen apart after due diligence procedures found "discrepancies in accounts dating back to 2001." And like anyone is surprised!

The club owe the Inland Revenue around £1m and this debt is due to be called in in June 2007. The deal with Leeds based Standing Alone Ltd was supposed to guarantee the club's future which has been in doubt due to the local council's refusal to let then develop a new ground and build on York Street. The deal was announced by Judas Jim Rodwell (left) just under three weeks ago at BUFC's official site

During DiggerDagger.com's lay off events at York Street have continued much as normal; money troubles, Manager and Ex Chairman convicted for defrauding the Inland Revenue, team under threat from relegation, revolving door in the boardroom. Its just like "Dream Team" for Boston United but without the good looking women (or men for that matter).

My personal favourite in recent weeks has been the holier than thou attitude from dear old Steve Evans with regard to a potential points deduction for relegation rivals Accrington Stanley for playing an ineligible player. Here is the BUFC official site's report on that particular pile of guff from Mr Evans for posterity. 

I recommend not reading this while eating or drinking.

Evans plays down charges talk (08/03/2007)
Boston United manager Steve Evans would not be drawn on press reports that Accrington Stanley are subject to Football League charges in relation to ineligible players participating in recent fixtures.

Evans said he was only interested in the Pilgrims’ remaining 10 league fixtures and stated he had every confidence that the Football League and its officers would thoroughly investigate the matter and if proved guilty, the offending club would be punished in accordance with the rules.

Evans, speaking exclusively to bufc.co.uk, added: “I have been chased by both the local and national media in relation to these ineligible players. If the facts are what we have uncovered and are also what have been described to me, there is no doubt that these players should not have played in the Football League, but we must now leave it alone and let the officers in Preston at the headquarters of the Football League deal with the matter accordingly.

“Several Coca-Cola League managers have contacted me in relation to the above matter, so it’s obvious that a number of people within the game knew what had taken place.

“My only concentration is the 10 games we have left and it may be the case when the above matter is concluded, we need less points, but it is about what we do at Boston United over the next two months that will decide whether we are in the Football League next season.

“I am busy preparing the players for Saturday and what goes on elsewhere is nothing to do with me, but the Football League will complete their investigation and give punishment in line with the rules in place. That simply is a points deduction as a minimum.”
