They sound more Bury than Bolton. I think the pandemic has saved them. Seem to be drifting under the EFL radar
Does sound a bit more Bury than Bolton at the moment. Whilst admins are getting plenty, can see them trying to sell it for any more than lowest possible to pay the bills..

(So it's not Best Ever so much as post-92. I know it didn't.)
On that basis, I'm out! :-)

We've signed Ben Swain at left back!
Can he play in goal, too?

Re: Half season predictions

Three biggest recruitment problems for me (in this order): 1. Goalkeeper - he had feck all experience and to not sign a fit back up as well...idiocy. 2. Left (wing) back. Gordon had no league experience - the man was on set piece duty as well first game! Mascoll has never been fancied and to sign b...

Re: Half season predictions

He's not going to say - we'll settle for mid-table, now is he? I think pre-season, I was sat at "play-offs" which given that covers 1/3 of the league pretty much, I still don't think that was then an unreasonable target (bearing in mind we might miss any target). I think, us being at 17th isn't goo...

Re: Half season predictions

I’m just tempering my inner Ian Evatt. 1. I underestimated what we had signed and how long it takes a team to gel. 2. I probably underestimated the quality of the league (albeit that’s a hard one to analyse). I had seen some league two in the last couple of seasons and thought pretty poorly of it b...

Anyone who didn’t go for at least playoffs is a shit fan. 😀
Or capable of observing what they've seen in front of them, so far! :grin:

I thought I'd pushed the boat out, going for 8th-12th!

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

Yeah, I'm not at bin him off, but not at what a great debut either. Don't think he gave us the lift Kioso gave us. It was so much his longer passes for me (and those are some you win, some you lose), it was his switch passes, whilst we picked some up, quite a few were behind where they were needed a...

According to Iles, we made 576 passes today. 101 of them came from Jackson.
But.....
That would mean he gave the ball to them once every 2 point something minutes...and the 63% he hit to a white shirt weren't very accurate.

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

I think Arthur doesn’t start because he’s pretty inconsistent and his end products a bit hit and miss. He’s been injured as well to be fair - Tuesday was the first time he was fit enough for the bench I think. Having said that he would be in my team for the next game. This formation suits him a lot...

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

What on earth have we brought Brockbank on for? Jones was getting joy down there so bring a centre back on to do the job? Harry won't give the ball away as much. As he aimlessly lumps it at the centre half for the third time... Jones was infinitely better. A far better player than Brockbank will ev...
