Not sure if this has been mentioned on the forum:

If he's a money man, as has been hinted at, I wouldn't be surprised if Clunan is targeted as one of the first signings.

At my age I can get the same effect just by standing up too fast.

With us staying full time, Boston swapping to hybrid with some players leaving as a result and Kettering being relegated, Peterborough Sports would seem to be a reasonably attractive option for good part-time players next season.  Whether they could attract Clunan is another matter but with Gash at the helm you would imagine they will be able to put together a pretty good squad.

This hybrid model that keeps being bandied about.  What are the differences between the way Boston will run compared to ourselves ?
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

What actually defines 'full time'? Is it being able to train in the day rather than just evenings, or is the frequency of training also a factor?

Boston chairman's statement here https://www.bostonunited.co.uk/news/chairmans-update--april-2023-2776489.html

Hybrid seems to be potentially mixing full and part time players, general opinion reading articles of teams at our level (Chester, Gloucester, Darlington) is part-time = 2 evenings training, hybrid can include a mix of mornings and evenings.  Whilst Boston are going Hybrid and train 3 days (I guess some of those sessions could be evenings), Gloucester are moving from hybrid (4 sessions) to part-time (2 evenings) next season.  It might work for some part-time players with either flexible employers / part-time contracts or those self employed but not so well for a person with a 'proper job', how many of those there are playing at step 2 is perhaps questionable given the demands of midweek matches on top of the training schedule. 

The big plus TW spoke about in terms of full-time was the scope for non-football time with the players such a physio, recovery etc, hence using the facility at Ely but I guess those benefits come at a fairly hefty price and SC has said we will be full-time again next year knowing what it cost this year so he must have plans for how that is going to be funded going forward.

Probably by implementing the substantial price increase for admission he mentioned in the press a little while back Tony.

What chance a merger in the future to form KIngís Lynn and Peterborough Sports FC ? Apply for grant funding for a Community Sports Centre, to include the football ground, approx 10 miles west of Lynn ?

I wonder what ambitions we are talking about. If he is a real businessman, as mentioned earlier, will he have the ambition to invest money rather than make money?  :coffee:
