    The BPA fans I’ve chatted to don’t seem to care at all that Bob Blackburn is putting the future of their club in danger. Their opinion seems to be that if the club goers bust they’ll just rebuild it from the bottom again, but the memories of buying promotion after promotion can never be taken away fro them. Which is thick, but up to them of course.

    Blackburn, a man who I have very little time for both as a representative of BPA and as a person, seems to be counting on this ‘league football in five years’ pledge he made. Certainly there’s no way they can support their current spending in the non league. But you’ll excuse me for not losing any sleep over it either way.

    By the way, it’s a 20,000 *minimum* capacity stadium. As pointed out in the rather excellent Boston United fanzine, impsTALK, that’s about 100 seats per fan.

    Good lord. That Mr Blackburn i considerably more of an idiot than I’d thought he was. I was prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt before I read that, but there doesn’t appear to be much point in engaging with him, does there?

    while I was janitor at the club I was mopping the
    floor near the board room and over heard two executives
    overhearing that the money they had has to be laundered off before “those bastards from London come back”
    before they are caught. The next day while I was signing in at the office
    I saw two nuns walk in they asked me where owner was and I pointed to that direction.
    The next day I walked in I saw Colne Dynamoes FC has ceased trading.
    Then in the afternoon of that day two men asked me if I knew anything about some scheme to launder money
    to Monaco, I said “sorry sir but your only talking to the janitor”, then they asked if I knew Jeanne Cole was, I knew her she was the assistant to directors to the club and Bob Blackburn nice lady with two kids now playing football. I told the men that I haven’t seen her since last week I told them she told me she was going to Sheffield to see her parents for a week I called her house no one answered. I went to her house and no one was there. What happened next was weird by beyond belief. I was clearing out my locker when I saw a group of men looking through the files and safe of Mr. Blackburn’s office and one said “The cheeky little bastard took all the files Jonathan find anything there?” said one man “nothing all I found was just empty boxes” said the other.
    The next month two major vineyards in Bordeaux, France were shut down by French officials as I looked at a wine magazine at a book store. It said that English Officials and French officials shut down the vineyard and auction it off. In Monaco when I went there during Christmas with my friend to see an AS Monaco vs Nottingham Forest then I saw a picture of Graham White in the Airport. In my conclusion the money was coming from an illegal scheme dealing with wine. That same year White’s company was bought by an American company.

    As I was reading this story I looked down to the comments and I see Mr. Watersfields name on the bottom.
    Actualy he is correct there were men in the offices. I was the accountant and I was questioned my those men who claimed to be the lawyers of Bob Blackburn. and they asked me when I was hired,where I went to college,If id played football(I did as an amateur) and other questions. Then they asked If I knew Bob Blackburn and Graham White and I said yes. Then they left. My manager told me the next day to pick up something in the office I walked in all I saw was Mr. Watersfield and he told me “The place is all messed up
    boxes papers everywhere!” I opened the door and it was a mess. The thing I had to pick up in the office was a checkbook in Mr.Blackburns office witch was gone and other stuff. And of course I had to call Jeanne Cole
    who was the assistant of Blackburn no picked up the phone no was at her house. Her house was for sale by June,12.1989 I never saw her again. Me im now an assistant manager for an amateur club in Spain.
