Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
12/03 Boston Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
FLEMING and Parkinson just didnâ€™t know where to stand, ending up as piggies in the middle, neither attacking nor defending, ceding space. Boston had three where Town had one. Macca and Bull constantly turned and frazzled; Macca appalling, Bull aspiring towards dreadful.
Boston United 1 Grimsby Town 1
And the rest of the half was Town, suddenly alert, suddenly attacking. Attacking without any individual or collective cohesion, but pressure, of sorts was applied to flimsy homesters. Macca raiding, Gritton, Harrold, and Coldicott indulging in some Sumo wrestling near the bye line, scrum down on the 22 yard line. A Town throw, Forbes flibbled to Parkinson who chested the ball down, turned and poked a shot goalwards. Abbey, slumbering on his porch, gaping at the dapper men with derby hats and canes, swung like a pendulum do onto the risibly rolling ball. Parky again, snapping a shot well high, Pinault on the left sluicing a shot from the corner of the penalty area out for...for....for...a goal kick. Just.
Half time: Boston United 1 Grimsby Town 0That is it.
If you were not there you cannot possibly conceive how devoid of competence Town were. No, no, you canâ€™t. You may think you can, but we know. Iâ€™m surprised the local council didnâ€™t offer us some fashionable trauma counselling, or send out the Louth Rescue Dogs to save a few thousand people gradually being swallowed up by this monster. We could sue.
Iâ€™ve never seen anything like it. Iâ€™ve never seen anything like it. Iâ€™ve never seen anything like it in my life.
