Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

I think this weeks Nigel Clough is Scunthorpe fans complaining about the Bolton FM commentary being biased towards...ummm...Bolton 🤣

Winning games = winding everyone up, long may it continue!

By which point we will really be scrabbling to make the play offs 😂

Re: When do we make a call on Evatt?

March is really interesting - we won’t get through it without a defeat so how we react will tell us a lot.

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

I’m really mot too worried about Delaney. He was involved in our previous good run. Had a rough patch but I think the presence of MJ and John, and a more solid shape about us means he would be OK. Would I worry about missing Santos or Baptiste, yes, but this is still league two and Evatt chose Delan...

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

I thought that big lump up front would worry us at set pieces - they had a couple of chances from corners in our usual off period. I would still have backed us to score again mind.

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

It would be great to have a third centre back we could use to spell Santos and Baptiste. Centre back is now the only position where if we suffer an injury to a starter we’d be significantly weakened. Do you know I think Delaney would be alright - better full backs and better centre mods in front ma...

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

At the start of February we were 19th in the table on 31 points whilst Carlisle was 2nd with 42 points. Now we're in 9th on 44 with Carlisle 10th on 43. What a turn around for both teams. To be fair, they've hardly played. Carlisle must have some fixture list. Fatigue much? Great to think on Saturd...

I had MJ down as MOTM for most of it, but he nearly made a couple of boobs...Santos missed nowt, nor did Baptiste and it could've been a different second half without that excellent goal line clearance. So I think in a photo finish, I'd give the vote to Baps.
Amen to that.

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

I will concede that Williams has had a good game tonight, although not sure I can agree with BWFCi’s description of ‘classy’ 😂 Really? Strokes it around really well. Breaks up play. Classic defensive midfield player. Few amazing 50 yard balls too. For me he’s probably the classiest player we’ve got...

MJ and the centre halves excellent. full backs both good though disappointed with John’s second half, he certainly got pegged back. Isgrove played well also, and Doyle.

Isgroves certainly more positionally disciplined than some of our other wingers!

Of the new players have to say I absolutely love Sarcevic. Not sure I feel affection for me but Sarcevic..he’s just got the X factor of a goal scoring midfield player.
A lower league Kevin Nolan.

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

To be fair Scunthorpe have moved the game about 20 yards further forward. They were standing off first half. We just need to find the space.
