Thoughts on Lockett? I thought he looked way off a league player at Colchester. Preferred King’s Arms.

Jesus - that’s a sitter above. What’s wrong with Miller - when’s he back?
Anonymous so far, barely remember him touching the ball

That was bloody awful. To think, I have a season ticket to watch this pile of shite.
This team won't get any where close to the play offs, they struggle to score goals and can't defend for toffee. I demand an improvement second half. Don't get too optimistic Bolton fans.

I’ll go the latter. Him and David Wheater have a lot to answer for.
Do they both still sup in Fanny's?
Wheater moved back to teeside I believe. Nice to see Vela giving it the hard man against our kids.
Shame he never tried it for our first team against men when things were tough, rather than his disappearing acts.

Playing at the tip of the front three. Theoretically at last. Their two big lads at the back haven't looked too troubled by him.

Might well be better as a wide attacker in a 4-2-3-1, facing goal. TBF he didn't get long at Colchester and the game was gone, we were two down.

I know, I agree. Just thought he looked a way off being physically ready for league football.

He certainly doesn't seem like he's going to boss their centre-backs. Interesting that Evatt put him up against them rather than Gnahoua, who's a bit sturdier and 11 years older.

How did he not score there?! Glorious chance for Gnahoua from 6 yards out after great work from Liam Gordon
I think the answer to that may be found in his goals to games ratio at a lower level than we're at!

Gnouha looked more like a number 10 to me when he came on against Newport. Not a very good one!

Greenidge on for Delaney at HT. Fair enough, give him some minutes.

Vela is also subbed at HT.

Shithouse has been subbed. Clearly Sam Ricketts has seen sense.

Still a target man light this squad for me.

Though a proper Defensive midfield Hard man would be a good addition as well - particularly if White is going to be out for a while thanks to fat vela.

Lovely cross-field switch from young Regan Riley.

For those who may be interested: to accommodate Greenidge, Taft has gone into the middle of the back three - and has started the half much less assuredly IMO, with a couple of odd attempted clearances. Hope he settles.

Christ. Crellin with an awful ball toward Riley and they nearly made it three. We need to learn.

First goal - Taft main culprit but Delaney did not cover himself in glory either.

Gordon?!? Where is this pace that people have mentioned?

Great chance to knock it past his man and cross it in. What's he do? Stop waits for the overlap and passes back?

No wonder we're not producing chances.

His positioning is...weird. Constantly offside and far too often he's way ahead of play, like 30 yards in front of his left centre-back. I get that wingbacks have to stretch the pitch but it means his mates have a low percentage ball and even if he gets it he's often facing the wrong way.
