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.

Pass round the back, lose ball, concede chance. Rince repeat.


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...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Did think that, but wouldn’t be surprised if it was linked to our league position. Ie if we come bottom half he can leave for the 10m that was offered I don't think even RFC would be stupid enough to write a performance disincentive into a player's contract. ISnt that what happened with Marcus Madd...

Re: League Cup 2nd round draw

Went to the stadium for a non-football related event, stayed in the hotel in the stadium. Proper odd, the hotel is actually part of the stadium that each of the rooms open out onto a view of the pitch It’s not a bad set up or stadium. Just very middle class and corporate Can understand why away supp...

Re: League Cup 2nd round draw

Thought it was a reasonable draw. Could be far worse - Norwich away or something

Home tie always helpful. Not that bothered if we win but gives the chance for the fringe players to get a good competitive game in.
