Re: Tooling up: The summer 2024 transfer thread

Nixon says we're after signing Ashworth on a permanent.

Has he been injured as he's not featured for months?

I thought we were just looking for a one word answer, sort of "In my opinion"?

ae:)
Okay.

Stay, in my opinion.
I think he's beaten.

Re: Rising in Wembley's Glow: A Bolton Wanderers Tale - Bolton vs Oxford. 18th May 2024, 4.15pm

I agree with you DTM, it's not can't be arsed. I think it's more fundamental. Handling pressure. Needs to be factored into our recruitment thinking, for me. You can have all the skillz, but if you can't bring them to bear, when it counts, you're just a shit spreadsheet number. Recruitment thinking ...

Been thinking back to the semi and the beers on the pitch etc - mentally the prep was wrong from that point.
They'll learn and keep them on ice for Wembley next season.

Again goes back to mentality. Thinking job was done as they'd got past last years hoodoo.

Re: Rising in Wembley's Glow: A Bolton Wanderers Tale - Bolton vs Oxford. 18th May 2024, 4.15pm

Yeah I don’t blame santos on his own - he’s just the captain and he doesn’t behave like one. They all hid yesterday I agree. His reaction after heading the ball away from Baxter for their first speaks volumes. They're always quick to blame one another when it's not going right. A calm leader takes ...

Re: Rising in Wembley's Glow: A Bolton Wanderers Tale - Bolton vs Oxford. 18th May 2024, 4.15pm

Fair points BWFCi. For me, if I was Sharon, I would let him have a holiday and get him in when he is back and ask him what he would do differently. If the answer is, and I always come back to this, Plan A better, I’d be looking for a new manager. He’s assembled the best players available to do Plan...

Re: Rising in Wembley's Glow: A Bolton Wanderers Tale - Bolton vs Oxford. 18th May 2024, 4.15pm

On the Evatt criticism, I hear what you say regarding players on the pitch to sort it, but I often wonder where the balance is between them taking an "executive decision" (like 2 8's dropping deeper) vs what they've been told to do through the week. It's not like the manager isn't right there next ...

Re: Rising in Wembley's Glow: A Bolton Wanderers Tale - Bolton vs Oxford. 18th May 2024, 4.15pm

The failings today are systemic. They are Evatts. He’s had three seasons to build and the problems remain. To get out of this division playing like we are needs considerably better players than we have. You can’t do it. We need a manager who is actually successful - knows what it takes to win and w...

Not with those players we won’t shit anything santos is a fecking myth Dunno about re-group, there's a few we need to un-group. Flat track bullies... That side today was mentally weak. Lost it before kick off. Can't deal with being favourites. Rinse repeat. Dempsey showed more spirit and fight in t...

Not bothering if he's here next season. It'll just be the same stuff, thinking he knows best.

Just been out thought and played by a team we spanked 5 nil 4 weeks ago?

Yer, I'm not nervous, you are.

Not had this since Crawley away, the what team will turn up.

Result like that day would be welcome.

Re: Rising in Wembley's Glow: A Bolton Wanderers Tale - Bolton vs Oxford. 18th May 2024, 4.15pm

Tickets sorted - the Mighty Flanners treating me for my 50th birthday (it was, you may recall, the day after the first leg). We will, obviously, be tracing precisely the same transport route we did for the Pizza Cup final, and indeed sitting in very similar seats (they were level with 18-yard line,...

Re: Rising in Wembley's Glow: A Bolton Wanderers Tale - Bolton vs Oxford. 18th May 2024, 4.15pm

The 2 Parkinson seasons that ended with the pitch invasions had happy finale's but both were turgid, boring seasons with some absolutely shocking football and results into the mix. Remembered for their relative successes, not for their enjoyment. Most of that Championship season was spent watching ...
