2006/2007: impsTALK predicts

Prior to the start of the 2006/2007 season, Des Hinks of Stockport County asked impsTALK for our predictions for the coming season. Never one to shy away from public humiliation, here are our answers.

Best moment of last season?
Lawrie Dudfield’s last gasp winner at home against Lincoln City was especially satisfying since we really didn’t deserve it.

Worst moment of last season?

Funnily enough, the 0-0 draw at Oxford was probably worse than our 5-0 tonkings at the hands of Mansfield and Carlisle, simply because it was so brain-chokingly tedious.

Funniest moment of last season?
Steve Evans’ hysterical reaction at being snubbed for the Manager of the Month award takes some beating, but I think his forced ejection from Blundell Park, when they actually locked the door behind him, just shades it.

How will you do this season?
You’ll struggle to find many Boston fans who are optimistic about 06/07. I suspect it will be another season dominated by off-field politics and court-cases, while the team crashes to a particularly gruesome relegation.

How do you think Stockport will do this season?
Mid-table safety probably. I’d like to see you make some progress, you have a fantastic chairman. He’s a top bloke.

Have you got a decent manager?
Well, we’ve got Steve Evans and I shouldn’t need to explain the innumerable disadvantages of employing this man to any League Two fan.

Which team do you most want to beat?
MK Dons by ten clear goals.

Which away day on the piss are you most looking forward to?
Accrington! Aren’t we all….?

Tell us something we don't know about Boston United?
Even though we’re at the highest point in the pyramid in our history, a lot of the older fans still view our glory years as the 1970s, when we were easily the best non-league team in England. We created a record of conceding only 3 goals at home in league games in a whole season, and went 51 consecutive home and away league games without a defeat. These days we’re lucky if we can string a win and a draw together.

Please name the champions, the two other sides promoted automatically, the play-off winners and the two relegated sides for this season's League Two.
Champions: Grimsby. Promoted: Wycombe, Notts County. Play-off winners: Accrington. Relegated: Macclesfield, Boston.
