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

Missed most of that unfortunately, but saw the last half hour where it was fairly even but we defended comfortably.
Sounds like performances are catching up to results, which is really encouraging.

Re: The athletics/running thread

5 slow miles tonight for me, friend and the (bigger) dog. Happy with that. Time was shocking but want to get the distances in til 10km doesn’t seem like a one off miracle once or twice a year. That’s about 20k all in for February BP. I need to get out more then once a week! Sounds good GG. I'd mix ...

There's been far too much positivity in the last couple of weeks. I'm trying to manage expectations.

Scunthorpe are a better side?!
They will be tomorrow :)
So what you're saying is, I should keep my tenner in my bag, as I'm going to miss absolutely bugger all? :-)
You'll miss a free scoring feast!
3-6.

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

I really like thomasson worthy but would have Williams every time in a game like this. Tuesday is the sort of game Maddison should thrive in so I think he'll start again, especially as Evatt has a man crush. He hasn't earned it though, with three poor performances. Hope George is back in though, pos...

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

Teams rarely go up winning beautifully every time. You need the scrappy wins that you barely deserve. Players like him make them possible. I still think we're not good enough to get the wins required but we've a better chance with him in there. He's far from the complete midfielder but we wouldn't b...

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

See what we are doing right now is not playing very ice football but winning games. Whether purposeful pragmatism or happy accident long may it continue. Oh and anyone who can’t see how much more robust MJ has made us in the middle of the park hasn’t been watching too closely. First name on the tea...

Tell you what, MJ is doing a job out there. We'd be losing but for his disruption in midfield.

Just have to hope they push on and leave us a breakaway chance. This is poor.

Declan John really is a treat.

Marcus Maddison desperately needs a goal or to be told to calm down a bit. Put it this way - if he were unknown or a kid we'd be saying drop him.
I'd say drop him. He'd be a useful sub. Get Sarcevic in next game.

Agree on John, so rapid and direct.

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

Had some good results recently Southend. Think we might be a bit fatigued. Be interesting to see what he does with the team. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was a draw. I thought that because I remembered them winning at Newport and they got a draw at Cambridge. Prior to that they had an absolute botty...
