Boxing Day Blues
By Blues Brother
December 28 2019
A packed Goldington Road failed to motivate the Blues enough and they allowed local rivals Ampthill to close the down down in the second half.
You have to take your chances in any sport and just at the moment Blues are not doing so.
They should have had tghe game on in the fiorst half but failed to press home the advantage and 20 second half points saw the visitors winning 23-10.
Gory details ommitted.

Oh so it's our fault, so nothing to do with the players not turning up? Glad we've cleared that one up.
Something gives, unacceptable either manager:coach or chairman’s fault?
I don’t mind losing if you try, not happening though is it?
I’ll be back next season, I can’t readily afford to watch every game and £16-£20 is a lot of money to me - wasted this season
In all other years we have finished in the top half of the league. Indeed we have come 2nd three times; 3rd four times; 4th twice and 6th once. I have not recorded our cup successes, but there have been a few good runs over the years.
I don't think that there can be any doubt that Mike has the skills and ability to motivate a squad of players.
What is in no doubt is that he can only cut his cloth according to the budget he is given and this year I fancy that he has been given very little with which to operate.
If the supporters were ever given an insight into where the club is heading and what it wants to achieve we might all be a bit more tolerant and understanding when things unfold as they have done this season. Hey ho.
But I think, we don’t do anything irrational until the end of the season and give the current set up the opportunity to turn it around then you can evaluate.
That said I’d be right in thinking that they recruited these players?
Surely it must be time for ‘The Board’ to have an emergency meeting......., otherwise we could find ourselves in ND1 next season, which isn’t where we want to be!

I'd be the first to admit there are a lot of ifs, coulds and mights in the above para - the situation is far from clear as things stand.
So there is relegation.........any idea as to which are the clubs who are building up a war chest for the following season?
The one relegated this May...
As well as the ones who narrowly escape and vow not to sail so close to the wind in future...
And possibly the Championship clubs who just miss out on promotion this May but remain ambitious to get to the Prem and realise there may be limited opportunities for this ahead of the fence being erected...
Going to be interesting to see what Leeds do next now that their DoR has gone.... What are Bedford going to do?
The man behind the most successful period in Yorkshire Carnegie’s history has made a shock return in a desperate bid to revive the club’s fortunes.
My local football club has gambled too, they’ve entered a higher league on a budget for the league they were in - they’re bottom - sound familiar? It doesn’t work!!!
What plans do our directors have?
Leeds look to have a plan, do Bedford?
Hopefully a cunning plan dreamed up by Baldrick!
I’m hoping we will see some change and a robust plan that ensures our place in The Championship. It’s time to see some proper leadership, which has been lacking of late. Onwards and upwards

However, the Phil Davies announcement and the contents of the Yorkshire Post article change that for me. He talks about making immediate short-term signings (just like last season) and he's a superb coach, capable of getting the very best out of a limited team (see Namibia at the World Cup against 3 tier 1 sides). It's also notable that the article hints at funding from Northern Energy which may mean Yorkshire will have a bit of cash to spend.
