This doesn't help. Ken, by saying this, you make it abundantly clear that there is a psychological issue amongst the squad.

Sometimes I wish Ken would stick to talking business and leave football side alone. Also entirely the wrong time to even mention new contracts publically.

I suspect, no matter how pessimistic we may get on here, theres not a team in the top 6 who doesn't want to be us right now.

We've come from around a billion points behind Sheff Utd to within 4, and we've overtaken Fleetwood, who were probably the form team of the galaxy, to go 6 clear of them and with a superior goal difference. And handed them their arses at their own gaff in the process.

Personally, I'm not arsed that much about the title, promotion is our single focus, but f**k me, if you were in Sheffield right now you'd be looking nervously over your shoulder. And it's a hell of a carrot to our players to carry that momentum on for just 7 games.
Maths not your strong point? On the 20 August BWFC were 11 points AHEAD of Sheff Utd, not a billion behind. So at the moment that is a swing of 23 points in favor of Sheff Utd. Yep the Champions are nervously looking over their shoulders :lol:
You went through the rigmarole of signing up on here just to post that world class dreary piece of knowledge?
Breathtaking.
Thanks, but it was no rigmarole. Good luck tomorrow.

You'd do well to read the post history of the Hoss before thinking you've caught him out in some sort of billy big bollocks post.

Might as well whack this in here: Two Bolton players in the PFA League One team of the year. Can you guess who they are? NB: For reasons of archaic logistics it's voted for in February.

I chuckled too, but in a demonstrably shit team he's scored 22 in 34 league games – as many goals as Madine, Wheater and Beevers combined. The effect of his goals on their results has earned them 11 points, without which they'd be level on points with Coventry.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if Parky's pondered pinching him. Vaughan signed a two-year contract after leaving Birmingham last summer.

We'd have won the league if we had James Vaughan. Exactly what we're missing. Goalscorer who also does a lot more. Better all round player than Billy Sharp. Obviously downside is awful injury record.

Beevers and Wheater is correct.

Yep, different: this is the PFA-voted one, that was the EFL one "based on votes submitted by a regional media representative of each of the 72 clubs who nominated their top 11 players and a manager."
