Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
10/08 Boston Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
THE ball boobied about, squirted out to their centre left and someone, possibly Carruthers, stuck out a foot and simply lifted the ball into the centre of the penalty area, into an empty space. Should I stay or should I go thought Williams. Go, go go! Too late.

Oh, you want to know what happened in the game do you? Mansaram this, Mansaram that. The walking, talking scapegoat wasnâ€™t that bad, either by his standards or those of his colleagues. He was constantly moving, constantly trying and the infinitely more gifted Sestan the Man should take note of that. Sometime during the barren cultural desert that was the first half Mansaram received a clearance on the halfway line, under the Main Stand. He flipped himself around, zoomed up the wing, cut infield and flibbled a rising wobbling shot from about 20 yards which went a foot or so over the bar. Thirty per cent of the Pontoon actually stood up, against their better judgement. Thatâ€™s football for you, no rhyme or reason to anything. At another indeterminate time Mansaram was the final piece in a five man jigsaw which saw the ball moved beautifully up the left. I canâ€™t remember who was involved in getting it to the Human Octopus but as there was beauty involved Pinault must have touched the ball. Mansaram, the strange curly bit with a kink at the top, spun away from his marker on the right corner of the Boston area and flashed (ah-ha, sorry for that) a shot high across the face of goal. The ball went out of play somewhere inside the penalty area and did get some Main Standers excited, so it canâ€™t have been too far away. Or is that too much of an assumption to make?
You want your Sestan moment now? Mansaram and Pinault exchanged first time passes and flipped the ball to Ashley, who had drifted in from the right touchline. He bundled forward up to the edge of the area and, from a position just right of centre, slapped a low shot a couple of feet wide of the â€˜keeperâ€™s left hand post. Get used to it, heâ€™s going do that every game, like a permanent tape loop. Ooh did you notice? Mansaram was involved in that too. I have the dimmest of dim memory of Parkinson fighting his way forward on a breakaway, but his resulting shot is lost in the swirling mists of time, or perhaps the swirling mists that were starting to envelop Blundell Park. The boats had long vanished from view, the trains were becoming hazy, the dry ice was creeping around the ankles. The 15 minute guitar solo couldnâ€™t be far away. Yes, it was half time already, and thank goodness for that. It was rotten.
Half time: Grimsby Town 0 Boston United 1
A word to sum up the first half? "Bweurgh", that noise you make when you have a bunged up nose. Now go away and stick you head under a towel with some Vicks Vapour Rub. Youâ€™ll feel better for it when you emerge.
