Re: BWFC Squad 20'-21'

Might also be worth pointing out that Adam Senior is a centre-back. IIRC.

Re: New Manager Thread

I don't understand why there are so many numpties, Nixon included, that are saying "just pay it". Standard business practice in a situation like this is to try and cut costs as much as possible. I'd be worried if FV WEREN'T trying to haggle on the price. And you can guarantee that there would be ple...

Re: New Manager Thread

I suspect I'm in a minority of one on this, but Barrow had a poor start to the season and were starting to flag before lockdown. In between, they had a great six months. So, Ian (the only under 40 year old Ian I've heard of 😁) just might not be the Messiah. But, I'll back him if he's our manager / ...

Re: What's going to happen?

Greetings from afar, Kenneth! Great to see the White shirts far afield from Bolton. The short answer is, we don't know. Lots of potential managers have been talked about, but a just-relegated club with relatively unknown owners surely isn't the best of situations for a manager to come into. Players ...

Re: New ownership - Football Ventures

I have to say chaps that it is very sad & quite embarrassing to be honest to be in League 4 (I remember the last time & although it was enjoyable socially as a much younger chap in 87/88, football wise it was shocking with regular crowds of only 3,000), however unfortunately it is what it is and we...

Re: Mark Davies

Game-changer on his day. The problem is that his days were too few and too far between, and his glass knees made them even rarer. He could only really play as the attacking midfielder in a midfield five, but even then on the defensive it was like playing with ten. Very frustrating player, but didn't...

The only fair option is postponement, surely. Shift the Euros to next summer, finish this season in June.

Re: Another fine mess Stanley (H) 29.2.2020 3pm KO

Do you seriously belief this ? or are you after a reaction. The reason that the chat on here is rather slow IMO is because everything regarding BWFC is fcuking depressing at the moment, sliding into League 2 for the 1st time since the 80's with a whimper, but the 'do gooders' think a 0-0 at home ag...

Re: The Keith Hill out thread

If you’re gonna pot him there’s no point rushing to replace him now when there might be better options in summer. That’s just storing up problems for next season. And it also makes the new guy’s record this season absolutely vital in the attitude to next season. What if the saviour loses more than ...

Re: You talk so much shit, Hill, you're twisting Mick's Mellon, man. Tranmere H 1/2/20

How come Matthews has started punching balls which look easier to catch? Anyone any idea? The fact that he's coming for the odd cross at all is enough of a change for me, rather than staying rooted to his line despite the ball passing two inches in front of his nose. I think modern keepers are told...

It was incredibly satisfying to hear opposition fans booing their own team for once, rather than us booing ours.

Chalk and cheese from Tuesday. Lurphy had possibly his best game for us, Bryan looked a class above, Politic was lively. O'Grady won plenty of headers, lost the ball when in possession consistently, but then scored so all is well. Playing that well and looking that dominant against a side who could ...

Seems like we're going to lose out to Lincoln on Bridcutt. That really does hammer home how far we've fallen. fecking Lincoln. Admin and an embargo will do that to a team.

Brief highlights, such as they are.

Felt for us today. They're working their socks off but just not getting the rub of the green. If the ball can go 2 ways and 1 is to our disadvantage, then that's the way it's going at the moment. We dominated the 2nd half without creating clear cut chances. Politic MotM followed closely by Darcy. O...

Senior is a junior, Wright is wrong, Earl's future is gray and Hobbs is hobbling off. Have I understood that correctly?

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

We've got Hobbs and Wright as senior centre backs. Earl is a left back who can play at centre back. We've got Edwards, Brockbank, Zouma, Senior as juniors. Earl and Wright may well be going back to their parent clubs this month. Hobbs hasn't been seen for months and must surely be being considered f...
