Re: Season Predictions

I believe the signings plus Politic have made the squad stronger so Evatt has better options off the bench if he needs to change a game without weakening the team. So a more solid strength in depth team to grind out a result. So for me the team is stronger and can compete mid-table at best. To aim h...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Greenidge, Crawford, Comley and Darcy would be my guess. They struggled struggled to convince Evatt in L2 so with the step up, will have greater difficulty to do so. Gordon is our only LB back up and is worth a look in Pre-season after his loan spell while Edwards has had rotten luck with injuries b...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

We have enough Central Defenders: Santos, Baptiste, Johnston, Aimson, Edwards, Senior, and dare I say Greenidge. Why would we need a 39 y.o. Jags?? How many games would he be able to play at his age and fitness levels? We already have Baptiste and Gilks experience at the Back. Do we have money to bu...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

One other issue is we need to make sure we create enough chances. Signing a "goal scorer" isn't really a thing unless you are making chances for them. Very few players make their own chances at any level. I'm hoping Sheehan will improve our attacking play, but we could use a creative forward player...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

I haven't seen these new players play before but I am happy that we are signing players. Based on Wikki and comments here, they are good players for the level we are at. I expect a couple young talented players from the Premiership/Championship to join us later in the transfer window to compliment t...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

I knew nothing about Santos before he came from non-league; I knew nothing about MJ before he came; I know nothing about Johnston and Aimson. I trust that the Manager and his Scouts know what they are doing, and next year this time, we are talking about them in the same way we are now talking about ...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Interesting observation Ghost. Evatts favorite system which would make Dapo, Politic and Isgrove redundant with John and Jones given license to bomb forward. We would also need to sign 2 more forwards in support of Doyle and Delf. Always good to have Plan B. Thanks and I’m flattered but you can’t c...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

It's an interesting signing. He was indeed a regular for Plymouth last season but it seems manager Ryan Lowe made the decision not to renew his contract, as part of an overhaul; in other words, it's not like the fella refused to sign an extension. Despite playing for Hull, Tranmere, Blackpool and B...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Welcome to Bolton Will. Never seen him play but he played the entire last season for Plymouth in L1 as Centre Half first choice apparently so should be able to do a job for us in that position. The downside for me is not his height (as long as he can play) but the fact that Plymouth shipped a lot of...

Re: Why we are (maybe) going to go up again

Italy has always been one of my favorite International teams since the 80s when Rossi did a number on fan favorites Brazil. Always very strong and organized in defense, with a devastating counter attack. To be honest, I am not seeing the comparison with my Bolton team as the quality gap is so huge. ...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

More seriously, Cee Bee, are you going off how you saw their performances last season or what you expect from them next season? Based on last season Ghost. For next season, the squad definitely needs improvement. Better players cost more money and there will always be constraints on what the owners...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

I'd be interested to know who thinks Gilks is one of the best players in our current starting 11. I do. My top 10 list of players would be: 1. Declan John 2. MJ 3. Santos 4. Sarce 5. Doyle 6. Baptiste 7. Lee 8. Gilks 9. Isgrove 10. Jones (Dapo didn't make my list and Thomasson just missed out) Inte...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

I strongly doubt we would have been promoted if Gilks had not come out of retirement. I give him a lot of credit for our defensive stability as those same players in front of him were there with Crelin and we were leaking plenty goals. As such to me, and from what I saw, outside of one or two mistak...

He's not as bad as Crellin, I read the table wrong. But he is statistically worse than Gilks which is my main concern.

Gilks isn't a good keeper
Seriously??!!! You say this with a straight face Spartan?? OK, so since Gilks is so bad, who is a good one that we should be going after??

Seems to me lles knows whats going on inside BWFC but has been told by the Club to keep quiet. He has only come out with the Dixon story today because Nixon has "buss" it, and it is true, and so, lles cannot afford to be late to the party in this game of journalism. He also appears to know that we a...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

We need quality all over the pitch, no matter what position, to make everything work. Brilliant signing John. Probably our best player so far.

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

I'd say that was centre-mids and centre-backs sorted now. Numbers wise but I feel we could still benefit from a big physical monster type in midfield. We are carrying Crawford and Comley and potential Darcy who may all fall outside IEs plans. I’d like someone who can do what MJ does ideally. Agreed...

Looks like we’ve signed a Welshman. Not clear who yet though…
Be Sheehan. Given he was in for medical Friday.
It is!
