Re: There's a Moose loose about these U's Take Twos. Cambridge United Away. 20/02/2024

Sheehan does struggle when pressed I think it’s obvious. He’s better than he was in that regard but I don’t think he’s been at his best recently, second half last night he was at his best. Morley nearly gave them an equaliser too. Maghoma - the criticism of him baffles me. He’s scoring goals and lo...

Re: There's a Moose loose about these U's Take Twos. Cambridge United Away. 20/02/2024

Agree that Sheehan "looks" world-class when he has space to play. Struggles badly when teams get physical and aggressive on him. That's his weakness. I wouldn't say he "struggles badly" - Cambridge were taking it in turns to have a go at him last night. He's able to create his own space when under ...

Thought he played well last night. Williams looks a little more 'rounded' I agree, but Ogbeta is certainly good cover / competition

Just watched the post match interviews on WTV and Ogbeta genuinely seems like the nicest, friendliest and most humble man on the planet.

Re: Who opened the door? My money is on Janus! 2024 January transfer thread.

Quite popular in dressing rooms by all accounts, but no manager has ever gotten a tune out of him. I think his ability has always been overplayed whilst his attitude possibly underplayed Can imagine he's one of those players who managers think of as a project and they end up with "he's actually a de...

Oh and I'd go as far saying that Sheehan is possibly the best player in the division. He's in a world of his own right now and is actually starting to look out of place

Re: There's a Moose loose about these U's Take Twos. Cambridge United Away. 20/02/2024

Like night & day that!!! Good second half effort to recover from a sub-par first half I like that shape away from home though, with someone in the hole. I think it can work. Maghoma was getting dogs on twitter for slipping, but he continues to impress me. 3 goals in 5 games now for him, but he's got...

Re: There's a Moose loose about these U's Take Twos. Cambridge United Away. 20/02/2024

I watched the highlights of Marine v Radcliffe from last week. He dropped a ball on his goal-line for a striker to gleefully stab home from Centimeters out. Shortly after a waist high (albeit well hit) shot beat him on his near post. Maybe just a bad day at the office, but as it's the only team I re...

Re: Red cards and Red Kits, Bolton v Charlton - 17th Feb 2024 3pm

Good game to watch and came away quite buoyed by the entertainment factor, but we defended poorly. I imagine everything has already been said about the keeper, but that second goal especially, he could literally have stuck his foot out, controlled it and picked it up it was that close to his right s...

Re: Red cards and Red Kits, Bolton v Charlton - 17th Feb 2024 3pm

If I were a referee and good at my job, I'd make a point of reading the fans sites of whoever was my next game? Just to see what they may think of my work. Then again, I'm not a referee. As to the game, twill be a spirited affair as ever when the Roses meet. Another were great care is needed, the T...

Re: Red cards and Red Kits, Bolton v Charlton - 17th Feb 2024 3pm

As long as we keep 11 on the pitch, which seems incredibly unlikely with Ross Joyce officiating us, we should beat these. They have quality, but have a soft centre and are on a horrendous run.

2-1 Bolton after going a goal behind

Re: Wandering, Why come back home? Bolton v Wycombe - 13th Feb 2024 19:45pm

I don’t feel great about our recent performances, but my gut feeling is we will start to get better and better as key men come back and the new lads come up to speed. Right now we look very disjointed, as is to be expected given the amount of personnel changes we’ve been making from game to game. I...

Re: Wandering, Why come back home? Bolton v Wycombe - 13th Feb 2024 19:45pm

And last night, being a case in point, the amount of times our midfielders, even the "advanced" ones, got the ball with their back to goal was mind-boggling. Good defending and good shape from Wycombe to ensure that, but any chance we can do something about it?

Re: Wandering, Why come back home? Bolton v Wycombe - 13th Feb 2024 19:45pm

My challenge to you though would be about the change of style. Despite what you - and many others (esp near me in the stadium) - think, its hard to argue with the fact it is working. It might be nervy at times, and it might also be a bit slow (but thats modern football, sadly), but it is consistent...

Re: A Load of Cobblers. Away to Northampton Sat, 10th Feb.3-0'clock.

With Evatt's red, it seems to me that the 4th official has told the ref he's ballsed up and is now going to have Evatt in his ear for the rest of the match,. The easiest thing for the ref to help his assistant there, is to stick Evatt in the stands

Someone on twitter says that Dion was holding his MCL which the gaffer also says "We'll have to wait and see" "The medial collateral ligament (MCL) runs from the inside surface of the upper shin bone to the inner surface of the bottom thigh bone. This ligament keeps your shin bone (tibia) in place....

Re: Wandering, Why come back home? Bolton v Wycombe - 13th Feb 2024 19:45pm

Poor game in a run of poor games. I'm delighted we won, but we're not looking in good shape on the pitch at the minute. Predictable, ponderous and to be honest, really feckin boring. I think Evatt has done and is continuing to do, a wonderful job for us but I just feel like we need a change of shape...
