The Big Boxing Day Bash
compo simonite 17 December, 2019 19:01
A week on Thursday the boys in Blue will run out in what must be one of the most important games we have seen at GR for many years, if as I am constantly reminding you lot we nearly always play well against teams we perceive are better than us in the league.......we should do well..... ....

But whatever the result letís hope that we see a record crowd watching entertaining rugby washed down by volumes of fine ale and spirits.......it is the season of good will to all men (and women) ......but I will show some bias in offering theses words.......COYB!

Couldn't agree more compo simonite. Probably most important match for us since last time Newcastle were in our division and we were in the play-off finals/facing Nottingham in the semi-final away leg.

Hope the squad knows fans'll be there in loud voice willing them on.

Of course I will be there, I'll be there is we got relegated BUT let this be the turning point.

A resounding win! A great performance too - that's what needed right now!

Was it 2010 or 2011 when you said something positive about the club Mr Wilcox? Don't know why I am doing this as I usually bypass your posts.

No definitely 2019..
Iím frustrated by the current situation we find ourselves in, not the only one. I really hope we can turn it around and get back to winning ways. Boxing Day would be a good time to do this in front of a sell out crowd at Goldington Road and also a good time for the youngsters to show case their talent.

I agree with Jonathan - if you can find something positive about our current situation please let everybody know.

A good time to showcase their talent? wasn't that time in September?

Pitch looks good.

Garlic, I agree, the pitch at GR always looks good, probably the best in the league to be fair. Then we have Nos, his pork roll and quality chips (been a while since we mentioned the legend lol).
We have one of the best home and away supported teams in the league, we also have talent within the team, individuals that on their day are up there with the best in the league. But that said we arenít firing on all four cylinders at the moment, for what ever reason....Iíve got my thoughts on this, which are different to many and I appreciate that. Iíve always liked the player/coach dual role, weíve had that in key positions in the past but not this season. Maybe weíve taken our eye off the ball...

Agreed and hopefully flags and wollie hats with pompoms on them..........

Blues website says that all the tickets have gone and we are full to capacity........so what is our capacity?

Betting on the Boxing day match is out with Mr Paddy Power the latest odds are
BEDFORD are 3/10... AMPTHILL are 3/1 and itís 11/1 the draw

On the handicap betting we are minus 8

IF as I am told Bedford are awful I would suspect that the 3/1 will disappear fairly quickly......
COYB!

I think the 3 to 1 Ampthill is an extraordinarily generous price
