Re: Clement OUT!!!!

I like Clement and he's really had his hands tied. He needs 2-3 windows to offload the average players/deadwood in the squad. He's not had any real decent players ready to step out from the academy given the lack of funds. We've lacked a real amount of youngsters being able to step up. Rinomhota ma...

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

Clement is an adequate manager at this level and adequate for a club like ours. If we stick with him and allow him to build a team over the next few seasons, even if we drop down a division it will be the correct thing to do. There’s no quick fix that hasn’t been tried already. He needs to ship pla...

Yeah Brum were terrible but still. And it was spin to say it was their reserves, I think their midfield was the same as they played va Swansea

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

Did you watch the Brum game out of interest Ian? Thought that was the best I’d seen our midfield for ages. Swift tracked back nicely a number of times and ran his backside off. Bacuna played nicely alongside him and they looked strong and athletic. It wasn’t perfect but it was better. Meyler and Kel...

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

At least there's glimpses of something. Which was totally lacking last season. This x1000 Yep 100%. Clement sees what we see. He sees that a few of our players just don't have it in them and is beginning to call them out on it. We should be standing with Clement and not slagging him off, he's clear...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

If we scored more we might concede fewer and we wouldn't need clean sheets to get points. Of course this is also true Thing is it’s not like we are wilting under pressure. It’s not like we are valiantly holding on but the defence finally buckles under pressure. It’s been a silly lapse of concentrat...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

Is Dom Samuel doing well I’ll there? Really? It’s a winnable game but PC needs to reverse his mistakes of last game Bacuna and Swift did well against Brum and that performance is all we have to hold onto this season so far Barrow should hopefully be fit. I’d play the same side as against Brum, maybe...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Need him at left back currently, but was certainly one of our only players to come out with any credit yesterday

Sadly he put in a couple of poor crosses from good positions, which id normally expect better from him. Otherwise played well

Re: BFTG - Bolton

I’m assuming Barrow even in one leg will be brought back in next game We played well against Brum. I’d go back to basically that team. I think this thread is a little over dramatic reading through. I don’t think we’re miles off but yesterday was certainly s big step back. We played ok first half but...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Just seen the goal. Was even worse than I expected. Sunday pub league level defending from a basic move

Awful from Moore and McShane

We will not win games if we defend like that.

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

Evans was poor here and would have fitted in very well with that performance today

Let’s not pretend otherwise

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

Yep he wasn’t great today but did well on Tuesday. Kelly has been poor for about 18 months
