Vanarama’s Fanarama! The season, the year and what 2020 has in store

League sponsors Vanarama are getting the opinions from clubs’ megafans for their take on 2019 and Steve Boem tells them all about his Fleet-supporting story

The halfway stage has already been and gone – sum things up…
Well, where do we begin! If you marked it in terms of a school report it would be C- and could do better. The Garry Hill era is over, I personally liked the man, but the style of football left a lot to be desired at times. Now we’re looking forward.

What does 2020 hold? 
Hopefully 2020 under the leadership of Kevin Watson will be a lot better and we will get out of the relegation zone. The football is more enjoyable to watch and he deserves the chance to get us up the table.

You can get one Christmas gift for the gaffer – what are you putting under his tree? 
I’m sure getting John Goddard coming back will be like a massive Christmas present for him and also a few more clean sheets would be great.

Who is going to win the National League?
This may surprise many but actually my National League winner is Stockport County.

The Christmas and New Year calendar – love it or hate it?
Love the Christmas and New Year calendar – don’t ever let anyone change it.

What’s your high point of 2019?
My high point of 2019 is Kevin Watson being appointed. Something had to be done and it’s shown in results that things are improving.

Your most memorable away day so far this season?
That would have to be Eastleigh. Tough game but the boys battled. 

When did you first start following your club?
I first started following the mighty Fleet in 2005 after my friend Martin Henwood persuaded me to go and watch them. I’ve never looked back 

What makes the club so special?
The fans make the Fleet so special. Whatever adversities we’ve suffered, the core base of fans remain the same. Whatever league we play in they will always be there – come sun, rain and snow.
