My god we are a poor poor side. But beyond that we are insisting on playing a system and style that repeatedly fails. It’s madness at this point.
I'm not sure how anyone can disagree with BWFCI - we are a bang average, poor mid table League 2 side, with very ordinary bang average not motivated League 2 players - the players are soft as shit all over the pitch & lack fight and spirit, and quite simply we do not have the players to play Evatt's Guardiola football in league 2.

Evatt is also a very naïve & deluded manager IMO, I've no doubt he will come out & say it as it is after the game and I do like him - but that doesn't mean that he's a good manager or that he will win us enough football matches.

Poor manager out of his depth & equally poor players who simply don't know how to compete, scrap or fight. Embarrassing performance which will get a reaction from the fans & rightly so IMO.

I have to say this isn’t a port val for me...3-0
Is very generous, and it’s thanks only to the referee.

Embarrassing again. Time for Evatt to go. Seriously. This is shameful.
Jog on. Constantly berating every manager to play the way you expect it.

You're a fun sponge.
Yeah it’s my fault. We are getting thumped at home by Port Vale and Tranmere. The issues are so clear and obvious. The manager is choosing not to fix them. And we are having to watch Bolton Wanderers get thumped by these sides as a result.

It’s pitiful. Embarrassing. And a complete and utter unmitigated failure.

Agreed 100% - there will be a serious backlash to this pathetic, weak as piss embarrassing performance. The players are a fecking disgrace.

I don’t think there’s anyone in this side who could argue about being replaced in January.

Not good enough all over the park. Delf has joined the cast of Lost. Isgrove is generally terrible. Jones just awful, Thomason not ready, Brockbank and Delaney have been laughable, Baptiste has had a mare. When we're on about unlucky penalties, they hit the woodwork enough in the first half.

He’s been utterly wank
In my defence I’d have hauled him off for Hickman...who Evatts not even got on the bench. His subs or lack of them is bizzare. Our lads have given up here.

You mean Keir Starmer who offers up what needs to happen is told he’s wrong by folk like you then is proven right?

Aye I will take that. The players are not capable of doing what is asked. So ask them to do what they are capable of.

We need to play a tighter system be less open, less expansive stay in games and let the strikers win us games. We need a physical team. We’ve needed that for a long time. But just opening up and getting beat is not good enough. Not when you are shipping 6 at home and bang average sides in this league are tearing you a new one.

1 step forward 2 steps back week after week - the whole squad is disjointed & half hearted, they all play like they don't give a fcuk. You can sign as many players as you want but if they can't arsed or are not motivated then what's the point.

We have a team of absolute soft arsed fairies, a team of pussies.

Replacing Evatt isn't the answer as FV have no money or any football knowledge and are also winging it as much as Evatt is - this feels worse than the early 80's in regards to being a hopeless situation, clueless from top to bottom.

Such a poor performance. We never laid a glove on Tranmere who cruised to victory without breaking a sweat.

They weren’t great at all and we’ve lost 3 nowt. Something needs to change. The players don’t fit the system, at least at home. We can’t keep shipping goals at this rate. I’m out, not going to think about football for the evening I think!

That's 7 players who were shite - this is by far the worst 'bottle less' team of tarts that we have had in my memory by some distance distance.

When your midfield has 4 misfits in it, there's always going to be problems. Isgrove for me is barely a footballer, yet I couldn't really grumble he's been given a go for Crawford.

Or........

we're 15th in the league & 12 points above the drop zone.
We're a basket case of a club trying to turn itself around.
We've got a manager recruited from the 4th tier who has had to build an entire squad largely from non-league or our competitors cast offs.

Don't get me wrong - it can be utter dog sh*te at times, but anyone who thought we were going to piss this league needed their bumps feeling.

The way I see it we are exactly where we should be and not sure we have any right to expect or demand more. There are glimpses - in amongst the turd - that look promising every now and then. A couple of years finding our feet and finding a style that works for the team and maybe then we can dream about trying to get out of this division
