Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

They look another team that have improved since we last played them. I'm confident it won't be a cakewalk, but on what should be a significantly better pitch than the last two matches, hopefully we see an improved Bolton performance. I would look at rotating a few players in the interests of keeping...

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

If we keep winning I’ll be happy, and if MJ plays a part in that I’ll stop my whinging.

I do reckon we should be thinking about some rotation for Scunny, because we were notably tiring quite early yesterday and I worry we’ll start picking up injuries soon if Evatt keeps using the same players.

We’ve found a way? If you think today’s game was indication that we’ve stumbled on a successful formula then you definitely were watching something different to me.

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

See what we are doing right now is not playing very ice football but winning games. Whether purposeful pragmatism or happy accident long may it continue. Oh and anyone who can’t see how much more robust MJ has made us in the middle of the park hasn’t been watching too closely. First name on the tea...

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

Gilks Brockbank Santos Baptiste John Thomason Lee Maddison Arthur Doyle Delfouneso 1-2 wictory to the Whites. I'm intrigued as to why you'd take Jones out of RB, a position in which I think he's done well in a back four, and replace him with a novice centre half who up to now's been pretty unconvin...

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

Come on man, Williams played well on Wednesday :fishing: :fishing: Haha, I would say a mixed performance at best. He didn't cover himself with glory for either of their goals, but I will concede he was involved in the build up for two of ours. Overall I remain unconvinced he's good enough to warran...

Re: Going South (end)? Not us. Southend v Bolton Sat 20th Feb 3-0.

We've actually not played very well in the last two matches, so I'd say we'll need to improve our performances if we're going to keep on winning. Southend seem to have sorted themselves out somewhat recently and I suspect will present a sterner test than they did last time. I certainly don't anticip...

Re: Is football not a man's field? Away @ the Stags 26th Jan 2021

Have to say lads, I'm still BUZZING after last night. 'Absolute scenes' in my front room when Arthur buried the third - got told off by the missus for scaring our daughter. :D Arthur really has been a revelation these last few games - he's such a talented lad and I don't really get how he's got to t...

Re: Is football not a man's field? Away @ the Stags 26th Jan 2021

This shit pitch definitely not helping us, but some signs of promise from Lee, Maddison and Dapo.

I get the feeling we’re going to get some chances on the break, so Delf on for Doyle would be my suggestion.
