Re: Is football not a man's field? Away @ the Stags 26th Jan 2021

I agree that this forum is conservative in general, however even on here 36% would only give him a max of 6 games before wanting him potted, therefore on the other more argumentative platforms i.e. twitter it must be 40-50% of fans wanting him out or are very near to turning and wanting him out.

Re: When do we make a call on Evatt?

I don't buy this identity thing... You assemble a squad You spend time getting the squad to work as a unit to win games Each window you you look to improve upon individuals in the squad, or cover injuries In the background you can 'change identity' or whatever else you want. Whether that's buying/re...

Re: 23rd Jan. 3-0'clock Tranmere away; nuff said

Are we asking too much just because we are "Bolton Wanderers"? I'm sure some are, but I think many of us are asking for competence. Ideally a manager will get the best out of his players, even if that means bottom of the table. As an absolute minimum a manager should be getting mediocrity out of hi...

Re: When do we make a call on Evatt?

I'm normally one for patience, particularly when a squad has been assembled in the way ours has. That said, there has been little sign of us playing to any of the strengths we have. A good manager knows they have to be pragmatic at times. Playing a certain way and sticking to it is only of use when ...

Re: Half season predictions

I went with mid table before we started the season. I think we'll end up on the lower end of that. For me it was naive at best to think we could go with Crellin without a proper experienced alternative. Gilks has done well to step up, but I suspect the adrenaline and excitement of playing again will...

Re: Will we be at the races? Cheltenham (h) Saturday 16 Jan 15:00 KO (GMT)

Jackson needs to settle... If we'd signed Messi and Ronaldo an hour before kick off, would you play them against Cheltenham? They’ve obviously been here a little longer than that seeing as names were out yesterday as having signed. But yes it’s early days for both. Neither convincing though in earl...

Ha I loved playing as a full back, way better than centre half. Push on, stick a cross in, and drift in at the back stick when the balls on the other side.
I enjoyed the pushing on much more than the having to get back.
I often didn't make it back :lol:

Not a disaster this IMO, much rather play them when its re arranged when we hopefully have 3 or 4 new / better players in. Forfeit the game give us the 3 points, Isn't that what was requested against us? Or make them play their u-18s, which is what was required of us. I assume they are in a separat...
