"Stoke are bossing Bolton" claims mic man and.....they get a free kick 25 out. And....mic man rambles, then......Ince and..over the wall and over the bar.

Stoke pressing very high. We can't seem to string two passes together. Defence looks increasingly shaky, and Oztumer is being muscled off it far too easily.

Overrun in midfield. Oztumer is a luxury in these games.

Very lightweight. Against a side such as Stoke it's a little strange. Appeasment again I think.

Missing Wheater too. He struggles with back to back games though. So understandable.

A nonsense starting Oztumer tonight though. Against a big physical side away it’s ridiculous.

Jack Hobbs completely lost his man/balance.

Noone wins a free kick via a shove from Peters. Half way into their half and....Oz....and....Stoke have em all back and Butland clears. They play a bit of football and......are we going to bother turning up? Martina.....and we clear but straight back to them. A bit of back-heel showboating...mic man chats, and 26 gone. Woods gets a free kick off Oz. Time for us to score...if we can get into it. Ince, Allen and.....Barahino forces a corner. And....in and....Mathews keeps it out and we get a free kick. Come on lads, get back in it. And...Buckley, Grounds, Wilson......and mic man talks injuries......on Twitter. A mention of Bury, then a throw them. We come away and.....it goes forth....Williams chops Magennis but no cigar. We don't get much up front when Magennis gets rough treatment. They sally and....Berahino, Woods, Bojan and.....Williams and Ince has a poor touch. Lowe clears for a throw.

We're not on the front foot (cough) here, as they sally again and....Ince shoots straight at Mathews. We go to Bury's game.....

I don't think Joe Williams has managed a successful pass this half.

Williams has given the ball away every time he has had it

Meanwhile..Mac feeds Williams but they recover it and come forth. Some sort of applauseathon rom the homers and we get a free kick. Mathews wallops and mic man chats....Afoebi gets it and they start a jigsaw again. Chat, chat....etc, then.....a throw for us. Grounds (Moxey scores for Exeter) the they get a 25yd free kick and....Martina and.....Grounds chops Ince. Another free and very close in on the edge of the D. And.....Ince (probably) and.....we clear. Buckley gets beaten and they come again and....we get a free kick now via Ince.

You know, maybe if we put Stoke under a little pressure they might get a little worried? too easy for Stoke this

What the feck happens in the time between games?

They have been dreadful.

If Jonathan Grounds doesn't get sent off it'll be a miracle.
Otzumer is doing/offering nothing.

Seemingly no desire to play it short. Every time we get it we look for the punt to Magennis, and he's winning the ball but has no support at all. Grounds is like a pig on a spit with Ince running at him. Major changes needed at half time.

Put ten attackers on and let's win 11-10. And......chat, chat and.....Oz breaks and....waits for support and....ref takes sweet talk to Berahino for a shirt pull. Peter now, Bojam, Berahino, Hobbs part clears, then clears again. Williams, B uckley....and....Lowe gets free kick. Oz, Williams.....and again and...goes backwards. Butland passes one out now and...a throw via Okalske. Peters.....backwards....and they clear with half time approaching. Mic man reckons we may well be a few down. One goal is all we need. Mathews, ....Grounds stops Afeobi, free kick them again. Woods, Oz, Bojan.....Berahino....Hobbs clears for a throw. Peters, Woods, Oz.....and..we get a free kick. Just a minute added, then....Oz and....forth and then they clear.
Chat chat and.....1-0 them as half time arrives....

I'd go as far as saying that was embarrassing.
