Re: Time to Bury one and get us out of this league? Home - Tuesday 18th 8.00pm

Madine is out we need to change the way we play to cope with it instead of playing exactly the same then saying we missed Madine? In my opinion Madine is average we should play Long and ALF up front and play the ball on the deck instead of high balls up to a couple of midgets. We have the players to...

Re: Will we Feelgood on Tuesday? Southend Utd (A), 4/4/17, 19:45

There is a video going round on twitter at the end of the game, as the players are clapping. Parky walks over. Nice and calm and composed clapping. Then suddenly for some reason starts fist pumping and going absolutely mental. One of the best things I've seen. That is the thing I like about him mos...

Re: Yellow Around The Gills - 14th March 7.45pm (A)

Will be a difficult game but we need a bit of consistency especially away from home, here's hoping that the Madine (still not convinced) and ALF can forge a good partnership and fire us to glory!

I think we will win 2-1 after going a goal down in the first half (had a dream whilst at work!)

Re: Over Hill, Over Dale - Tuesday 14th February (H)

Think he will stick with the same team (Parky seems to like a settled team) hopefully with the same outcome! Think this will be a tougher match than Saturday going for 2-1 (Trotter unlikely to score another one of them and never seen Madine score 2 on the bounce?)

With Ngog you always thought he had something though just cannot see what Madine had to start with. Good shout though I still say Madine is worse.

Re: Saddling up Saturday

ARRRRRGH!! Madine is absolutely fecking shite and would not get in most League one teams never mind Championship. Yes we are stuck with him, but we do not have to like it! All those saying he does this and that you are entitled to your opinion but all he does is run around without purpose and wins 3...

Re: Saddling up Saturday

Not really a doom and gloom merchant.....However, the Saddlers are on a good run at the moment and we have not won in the league in 2017. We need to win if he starts with Madine and ALF on the bench I will not be happy and we will most likely lose with this scenario. Looks like Derik will go to righ...

Re: I should have told em, Oldham. Home, 15th Oct.

They have a worse scoring record than us! I am not convinced with either Madine or Proctor but they are Bolton players and I am still hoping one of them can go on a run? We need the creative players like Clough, Ameobi and Henry to start chipping in. We had a host of clear cut chance (3 1 on 1s) aga...

Re: Oxford (H) 1st Oct 2016 15:00

First game of the season for me and my son. I am hoping for some entertainment and the odd Bolton goal for my sons sake. He is only 8 and started watching properly in the Feedman era. He has had a lot to suffer in such a short time. Although his support has unwavered during this time, I'm not sure ...

I have never started a match thread and as it is now the day before the game I am a bit sad there is not already one set up.

Anyway I am going for another steady performance and a 2-1 win COYWM!!

Re: Out, damned Spotland, I say. Rochdale (A) 27/9/16

I mean for perspectives sake, the expectations were rock bottom over the summer. Raised by the start to the season, which, very very few fans saw coming. Not saying that excuses what have been poor performances, but equally I think the difference is a little energy (which perhaps injuries etc have ...

Re: Clubs fight back at crazy Football League proposals

The EFL Football league that was will be restructured eventually to accommodate a PL2 which has been talked about for years.

Re: Bristol Rovers (a) match thread 17/08/16

You'd have thought so, I just read it as being a narrow pitch (affecting wide play) See, this introduces an new conversation altogether. Parky seems hell bent on bringing in the 'Big Lad'. These players are generally found out on tight pitches due to a lack of technical ability. If the pitches are ...
