Highlights. Watch and weep.

Alright that. A draw against a team 11 places & 22 points (excl -12) ahead of us in the league. According to the highlights more chances for us than them - including 1 off the line - and on their patch too.

Not a bad result overall

Re: Don the tin helmets and Plough on regardless, AFCW (A) 7/3/2020 3pm9

My point is that a better manager would probably have got more out of this squad of players, and that the current squad should have been capable of better results & performances than they have under Hill. I agree that all players deteriorate at some stage, but surely not the whole squad - and if yo...

Re: Don the tin helmets and Plough on regardless, AFCW (A) 7/3/2020 3pm9

But it is though, Hill knew the score and the conditions that he would be working under when he took the job. He's signed Emmanuel (ex championship player), Nsiala (ex championship player), Daryl Murphy (ex championship player), Fleming (ex championship player), O'Grady, Bunney, Hamilton & Delaney ...

See, I kind of agree, but not sure the logic of "if you ignore some of the wins from our run, then we've not won many" works!!!!

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

We should certainly hope for better, but why expect better? Where exactly does the expectation come from? We've been mis-managed for years and it all came to a head last year when we very nearly went out of existence. Potential investors were few and far between, and one of them - only one - was pre...

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

If you are in the sh one t and accept it you stay in the sh one t. The manager simply is not good enough by any stretch of the imagination and thinking because of one reasonable 45mins and not conceding is turning a corner beggers belief. Like most I expected us to be down at the bottom and more or...

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: Day after St Valentines day massacre? Bolton v Wycombe Home, Sat 15th Feb. 3-o'clock.

Fella, how do you know that we couldn't get a better manager ? we appointed Hill & Shitcroft after 5 mins just because they were Bolton born, FV don't have a clue about the football side of things. I don't know if we could have got a better manager or not to be honest mate. I don't recall a massive...

there is absolutely nothing for the fans to be optimistic about, its depressing and at the moment there is absolutely no hope or plan that things will improve.

Course I'm not related to Keith - don't have any beef with the fella, but no great allegiance either.

I just think we need a sense of perspective. Ever to occur to anyone that we couldn't get a better manager as we couldn't aatract or afford one??

Re: Brew Years Day - Burton Albion (H) - 01-01-2020

Reading all this is tremendous. 5 months ago, despite the shitstorm that had rained down on the club for years, it was all "Parky can f*ck off. Get someone else in - don't know who, but anyone - anyone - would be an improvement" Hill comes in. Despite the shitstorm that he inherited, 5 months later ...

Re: The Politics Thread

Like it or not, it's a ringing endorsement for Brexit and for Boris. God help us! Don't think it is a ringing endorsement for either. I think it was more a case of the "least bad" option prevailed, rather than a scenario where people really wanted this outcome. In my line of work I come across a lo...

Re: The Dons visit the University...V Milton Keynes Home. 3-0'clock 15-11-2019

one observation I had from the game was, that whilst it was pretty even and on balance I think they had the better chances, I've never seen a team make so many basic errors and mistakes as they did: wayward passes, lack of control, passes that ended up going out for throw-ins etc. From that perspect...
