Re: Oldham or fold em, but no full house in sight..

Is it the manager? I find it strange we have been one of the worst teams in the league for the past few seasons?

Re: A Barrow load of trouble. Barrow (A) League 2. 20/10/20 KO 7pm

Lose this and it will be the lowest since I began watching Bolton in the 60s. After witnessing their demise so far this season I have to ask, "who's going to score the goals"? This crop of players sure aren't going to put many teams to the sword. I honestly cannot see a Wanderers win, a draw would b...

Re: Oldham or fold em, but no full house in sight..

It's ok saying don't sack him yet, agreed but, he did assemble this crop of players. From what I've seen so far these players are simply not good enough to play the way Evatt wants. Oldham had significantly less possession than we but, they could have been four up at half time.

Re: Oldham or fold em, but no full house in sight..

I don't know what they practice in training but it isn't defending nor sticking the ball in a net. As many have said, I also didn't expect to walk this league but I expected better. To be fair, they did play some decent footy, but they're clueless in the last third of the pitch. I can't see where ou...

Re: Oh My Cod! Will we put them in their Plaice? Grimsby Town (H), League 2, Saturday 10th October @ 15:00

I must be one of very few that though the team performed quite well. The passing was better as was the forward play, It's just that last third of the patch where we are clueless. Santos was a rock at the heart of defence. We simply cannot score goals. I think we have to view this from a different an...

Re: Whither the burke in the coracle? Shrewsbury (A), FLT, Tue 6 Oct @ 5.30pm(!)

That was bloody awful. To think, I have a season ticket to watch this pile of shite.
This team won't get any where close to the play offs, they struggle to score goals and can't defend for toffee. I demand an improvement second half. Don't get too optimistic Bolton fans.

Re: Up Against the Elements. A Match Springs to Life. Their No. 16 is Atomic. Harrogate Town (A) 03/10/20 15:00

Better but a long way to go. I'm not getting excited by that victory, far from it, Harrogate were none league last term. It was a better performance especially from midfield. Defence is alarmingly bad and that keeper hasn't a clue when to come for crosses. Doyle will score goals when chances come hi...

A poor show and a defeat to Harrogate will be one of the lowest of lows for me being a Bolton fan.

Re: What's the collective noun for a group of wheelchair bound detectives? Newport County at home. 26th Sep 2020 3.00pm

I managed to get the stream on i follow via my pass. I'd be happy to continue watching this way from what I saw. Having read some of the posts we have a mixed review. Early days, give them time et al et al. If Evatt doesn't address that defence, Bolton will drop from the EFL. That team is simply not...

Re: Can we be-a-tad little shellfish and make this the U-turn of the season? Colchester United Away 19th Sep 2020 15:00p

Whilst we're on the topic of i follow, what is required to watch the game. I have a firestick where I can access i follow but the Colchester game wouldn't work as many found out. The Forest Green game was ok but that buffered quite a lot. As a Season ticket holder I have the pass for the Newport gam...

Re: Pies in administration

In my neck of the woods I'm surrounded by Wiggin fans, all quite confident the EFL will over turn their 12 point deficit. They can get the best lawyers there are but it won't be over turned. The EFL are one ruthless organisation. Now having been the target of these pie men when Bolton were going thr...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

With the amount of quality signings I feel the club are going for a double promotion. FV seem to be quite keen on arming the new manager with the weapons needed for both bottom two leagues. This season will be quite fun.

Now the guessing begins. I can see an appointment from within as opposed to a new man. David Lee has been linked many times, maybe his time has come. Personally I'd like someone with good experience, someone that knows the lower leagues and with good relations with other clubs. At least who ever bec...
