What caused Palmer problems was his ridiculous attitude.

Duncan Russell and Peter Shirtliff have very similar records (eg they were crap) but aren't really remembered in a bad sense as though poor managers, they were nice blokes.

He was one of those people where if he'd have got a smack you'd be hard pushed to find anyone who would be sympathetic.

Apparently the associated members cup was better known as the Third Division North League Cup in the 1930's
We might win against Accrington next time.

A few interesting quotes about Mansfield:

“It was an average group of players that we had to get the best out of to keep a team that if we didn’t keep in the Football League would probably have spiralled down the leagues,” continues Murray.

"Mansfield had the fourth lowest budget in the division, but despite this they improved and finished 12th in the 2015-16 campaign, their highest position in over 10 years."

Except for 13/14, when they came 11th.

Bad start to Adam Murray's Conference North campaign at Boston United. They got thumped 4-0 with former Stag, Gary Roberts, scoring a cracking 4th goal for Southport.

Always wondered what happened to Roberts after he left n went to Malta.

Adam probably set up to protect the point as usual and it went t its up early on.

He was at Bangor city in the wpl last year and like with us had 6 months being decent then his problems resurfaced as per usual and ended up being paid off before joining southport

Looks like Gary Roberts joined Southport in July after spells at Floriana in Malta and Bangor City.

It will be interesting to see how Jack Thomas does at Boston United and whether he manages to get more game time than he did at Barrow.

I did a bit of groundhopping on Monday night and popped over to Bradford Park Avenue to watch them play Boston. It was not the best game of football as both sides struggled with the conditions especially when they played long balls. Brad McGowan gave Boston the lead with a diving header from a Ashley Hemmings free kick but Bradford Park Avenue quickly equalized when Mark Ross fired home from a Graham Kelly long throw. Bradford won the game in the second half when Kelly played in top scorer, Adam Boyes, who finished well. Boyes had scored plenty of goals in the National League Premier for Barrow and Guiseley.

Adam Chapman had a disappointing game in midfield and was subbed on 69 minutes. He also had a disappointing attitude and was shouting at some of his team mates for making him look like "a raspberry" when the truth was that Chapman had given the ball away or made a bad pass. The Boston fans do not seem to impressed with him with one thread entitled "Who was the last midfielder we had worse than Chapman?" and the comments:

"Doesn't run
Demotivates everyone in the team
Thinks he's a superstar
Nothing ever his fault
Can't think of any assists he has made
Hardly ever tackles
Never gets sent off as that would strengthen the team".

Jamie McGuire battled hard in midfield as usual but Boston were lacking a bit of inspiration to break down the Bradford defence. I'm still amazed Ashley Hemmings is playing at this level as he looked like he could do far better. He should be playing higher.

It was Boston's 6th defeat in 11 league games and they are 17th in the league after losing 5-2 at Blyth and against Park Avenue. Adam Murray looked a forlorn figure at the end as he threatened to make further changes to cut out Boston's defensive errors. He's brought in Jack Thomas and former Donny youngster, Liam Wakefield but he's already got quite a few young players and he might need a few more "mesters" to add a bit of experience.

The "Critics Corner" at Boston are starting to get restless. They did sack a manager last season (Dennis Greene) who had previously taken them to the play offs.

Sounds familiar. So much for him being a star at that level.

Adam'll get his P45 if things have not improved in the next 3/4 weeks imo.
