On a serious note.

We aren't going to be able to spend much money. PP's contract expires this season and we might be forced into promoting David Lee. A man who knows the youth at this club whom we may be forced to use next season.

If, this is a big if, the boardroom can be sorted then I don't think next season will be as bad as we think.

Remi Matthews might as well be subbed for a potato.

At fault for 3 goals today.

It won't be too bad. I'll probably have more away but home but games to go to: Alfreton, Matlock, Buxton...

Fourth time that's happened away this season. One win, one draw, two losses.

If we're going down! Lets go down conceding and scoring loads of goals!

It's more interesting than the one goal margin defeats thats for sure.

Indeed, our goals per game has shot up from 0.684 (26/38) to 0.717 (28/39)

Still much worse than our worst-ever seasons before for GPG (1970–71: 35/42 = 0.833, 2017/18: 39/46 = 0.848, 2015–16: 41/46 = 0.891)

In order for this not to be our worst-ever season in front of goal, we need to get to 39, meaning we need 11 in the last 7 (1.57, more than double our current strike rate)

I'll agree with that. Nothing more boring than what we've done this season. That's a fact.

Left after 59 minutes. Just couldn't stomach any more and the fans had turned on the players and Parky, making for a pretty nasty atmosphere.

Today is about as low as I've ever felt as a Bolton fan.

I remember you posted a stat our possession a few weeks ago. According to Sky, we managed 51.6% possession today and lost. Is that 3 or 4 times this season we have had more than 50% and lost them all?

I couldn't care less about this game. IMO we were relegated months ago with Parky in charge. What is more important is off the field issues. This could have been our last game anyway

Four games with majority possession, four losses. (The graphic's a month old but I've quickly checked and we haven't had majority possession in any other game since, including the win against Millwall.)

As an aside...Another howler by Remi. I’m certainly far from sold on him over Alnwick despite his shot stopping ability.

Can’t wait to clear the decks. Donaldson has to be one of our worst ever players. Magennis - Id love to see his average touches per game, he’s shit. Lowe is gash, Hobbs is shit, the two Everton loaners are championship deadweights at best, Buckley is stealing a loving when he’s not being paid, Noone is crap, Ameobi can’t be fecked. I think Gary O Neil, Wheater and Beevers are good lads though!
