Re: BFTG - Bolton

The different views on Swift are certainly interesting. I thought he was head and shoulders above anyone else, but each to their own etc :)

Thought Moore was poor today as well and shouldn’t escape criticism. Him and McShane made a poor pairing

Re: BFTG - Bolton

He really wasn’t. Picked up the ball from deep and ran with a number of times. Didn’t think he slowed play down at all, just the opposite Main problem was he got stuck on the wing. Should Have played central in place of Kelly My ratings would be similar to CR though would take points off Yiadom - wh...

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

We played terribly but don’t think we ever just went back to Stam ball. It was just pot choices, poor passing and bad decisions. There was no conscious effort to keep ball from what I saw

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

I feel we got into such a rut under Stam that it was always going to take a while to sort things out Pleased Clement has taken a bit of responsibly as he messed up badly today. But it’s too soon to talk about sacking him. We don’t play like we did under Stam. Confuses me when people say that. We pla...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Agree. First time I’ve felt he has really messed up I didn’t like the team before the game and said so on here. It didn’t work and didn’t ever look like working. Ilori has been great all season and pre season and gets dropped. Very poor message to send out and I’m sure Clement knows it was a mistake...

I’d be seriously concerned about the judgement of anyone who thought McShane was MOM today. He was absolutely awful

From an exciting debut where he was creating around the box and score a some nice goals, to a slow plodder that sits really deep and collects the ball from defence. The wrong manager really can fukk things up.


Now this I agree 100% with

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Swift was at the centre of every single good thing we did Can’t understand how anyone could think he was woeful tbh McShane, Kelly, Yiadom, Blackett, Meyler, Moore on the Other hand... For me, you are just not going to win games when you concede pathetic goals like that. Glad Clement made a point of...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (h) sponsored by Notlob is Bolton backwards

Was a painful result. We play some really nice stuff at times, but make soooo many mistakes and bad decisions I’m getting absolutely sick of Kelly and McShane in particular. Kelly is a complete waste of a place, constantly slows everything down and takes the safe option. McShane is just a poor playe...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (h) sponsored by Notlob is Bolton backwards

Personally think it’s a mistake playing McShane and also Kelly, but let’s see how it goes. Ilori has been our best player this season, very harsh to drop him

Front 3 should be interesting and Bod and Popa give us a clear plan b

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (h) sponsored by Notlob is Bolton backwards

I’m actually suprised How different it feels this season despite not having great results so far.

We really could do with the 3 points though, very big game already. Win it and I think we’ll start moving up the table fairly quickly over the next month or so

Re: Rumour: Nathan Dyer (loan)

Dyer would be a quality player I can’t see Popa and Harriott playing too much tbh - too injury prone and prob lost their chance when they missed most of pre season McCleary has been injured for the best part of 18 months and Aluko isn’t very good Realistically we only have Barrow and Meite as decent...

Re: Rival Watch

That really was like watching us last year. Brought back very bad memories right the way down to the horrible away kit

Only difference is they got the luck and Brum’s abysmal finishing saved them a point.

Haven’t been watching but Jaap would certainly be proud of those half time stats

68% possession and 1 off target shot on goal, no corners

Brum 32% 14 shots, 5 on target, 8 corners

Re: Team for Bolton (h)

Purely from the small bits I’ve read of Bolton this year they’ll be looking for set pieces Be another reason to give Bod the nod. If you could put out Moore, Ilori, Blackett, Meyler, Bod, Meite and maybe Bacuna should really be able to handle corners etc. Thought we looked a little short against Der...

Re: Team for Bolton (h)

With all six of our senior wingers struggling with injuries or fitness, who would you pick to play Bolton and how would you line up? Popa is available but lacking fitness, Bacuna is struggling but should play, and Edwards and Obita are also out. There are also selection dilemmas in defence, midfiel...
