On a lighter note. (remember those days?)

Gustavus said (of Hawkins) elsewhere today:

Of all the bizarre Mavericks involved with the Boro over the years he is right up there!

Which got me thinking . A good fundraiser would be a charity match. Mavericks v. Oddballs? Competing for the Bullshit Trophy. (Let's be brutally honest-it would carry more prestige than the BSC).

Mavericks Squad:
Smurthwaite, Hawklns, Neale, Kelly,Kerry, Thorn,Ashby, Wilson, Riche,Brown(I),Daish,Wright,T, Lewer, Prince

Oddballs Squad: ...c'mon...fill in the gaps..who else has had a hand in f*****g up the Boro over the years?

We could split them into shameless bullshitters and hopeless over-optimistics.

Despite saying stuff that was not true, and omitting things on purpose, I would put Hawkins in the over-optimism pile, and NS on the other team.

To be fair Stadiasafe did well until different directors left at different times. Not sure if Kerry and Clayton were ever replaced. Also think they got a bit too big for their boots once we won promotion to the Conference. Who paid for the new Rovers?

yep fraid so
remember the 500k Bloors sponsorship deal ? that unless ive got it wrong was costed against the MP sale price as a loan !
Christie monies, third round of the fa cup, ground sale = bust.
sorry gents but not how to run a non league club.
lets hope IF we get through this present debacle lessons have been well and truly learnt.
dreams out realism in
ps im thinking that somewhere along the line the cup run saved us from liquidation ????
any truths in that one ?

I was told by a person very closely involved that if we had lost to Histon, we would have gone bust the next day.

The deal for sponsorship with Bloors was no where near that amount, and a huge amount of the money for the ground sale disappeared in rent, effectively but it may have a different name legally, payable to Blooms between completion of deal and us moving out, which was bloody ages because we were run by a feck get crown crew, and not for the first or last time.

MC money + Boro 3rd rd. i was told by someone on the inside that a million quid would not stop us going tits up
to say i was gobsmacked is an understatement to say the least
i was naive enough to dispel those words at the time as fantasy politics kicking in.

ps the Bloors sponsorship amount was what i believe was quoted at the time in the local rag
as the club made a big splash over the so called deal.
if im wrong ok im wrong

It may have been what was quoted but no money changed hands, and only a small amount knocked off what we owed them.
And iirc a leading member of the supporters club backed the club on cwr for going back on its word to fans over stripes.

I was sure I'd added Shooter and Finnegan already, but evidently not. Other than Bill Olner (who was an NBST member and also supported a couple of initiatives), none of the local politicians have ever got seriously involved except to block conspire and connive. So they'd all qualify I guess. I accept Stanford and Clayton have a claim. Stanford at least turned up to home games after he left the Board but neither were blessed with massive vision.

Then there was also a local journalist who pretended to be pro Boro but who censored and edited all the NBST Press releases we sent him. He ended up barred from MP. I actually saw him celebrate when we got knocked out of the playoffs. He was lurking outside beyond the turnstiles. Utter twat.

When you come to total it up we certainly have been cursed by more than a fair number of unimaginative idiots. Like moths to a flame or flies round a cowpat they gather. Lord save us and lift the Boro Curse!
