I've only just realised it was Butland in goal for them yesterday.

Did anyone else think he was was dodgy first half? Kicking was awful and on a few occasions he was almost chased down by Keane and Quaner.

Someone try and tell me our January signings haven't improved us.

Go on.

Tonight was brilliant. As close to a 90 minute performance, if we're ignoring the start, that we've seen all season.

Bishop was Bishop of old.
Keane held the ball up countless times, took it down on his chest, linked play. We'd be lucky to have him in league one I feel.
Quaner isn't naturally talented but he's been harshly criticised since joining and was also important tonight.
Kenlock gave so much energy and defended generally well. Also doesn't mind using his right foot when coming inside, which is refreshing.
And that's the best goal we've scored for a long time. What a cracking finish. Hopefully signs of things to come from Nolan. He's not finished here based on that.

Glad of two things in particular, first that due to the ticket promo there was a good crowd to see it and may be tempted to return, and second that we're at home again on Saturday. Can't wait.

Up the Town.

Edit: Also, the Derby goal looks offside. So a moral victory.

Someone further down made reference to it but wasn't sure how many people had picked up on it as it's quite interesting.

From 1:52:00

Comment about the scum bench made me chuckle. I would just love to sit Chambo down and get him to reveal the ins and outs of his town career because I'm sure he wouldn't mind.

Is anyone over last season yet?

From the ball across the box from Knudsen that should have allowed McGoldrick to tap in for 2-0, instead went out behind, to the whole defence forgetting to defend and their centre half crossing for their other centre half to equalise.

This Sunday really is a free hit. Apart from a cricket score I don't see much going 'wrong'. I imagine Lambert will relish this chance to cause an upset and I hope he gives it a good go.

I would like to see two up front and for us to try and make the ball stick. Get Quaner running channels and roughing them up, and get Keane on the ball in the spaces. What will be will be.
Lambert and our style of play
at 09:25 5 Feb 2019

Is anyone else surprised he didn't come in and go full on MM and shut up shop?

This isn't a critical post by the way, more thinking 'out loud'. You have to commend him for trying to do it this way and committing to it long term.

I did expect Lambert to improve us defensively I must admit, but it's not really happened has it? Instead of losing games 2-0 constantly under Hurst it now more like 2-1 or 3-2. The trouble is we still never look like out scoring anyone.

Here's to hoping the style he is implementing will be effective by the time we are playing Accrington again.
Alex defends Steve

Too right as well.

I usually enjoy Danny Murphy's punditry and Ruud Gullit's can be mixed but I thought they were both out of order talking about Bruce before the Chelsea game on the BBC. It was a non story really and Bruce should have got credit if anything. Alex Scott tried to make this point and was overulled. Shame.

Home games will be the ones that keep us up or send us down. Im sure we will have this all season, winning a home game and all getting our hopes up, then losing away and then all losing our shi t.

Keep the faith.
Bury legends evening

Anyone go to that tonight? Type of event TWTD folk go to?

First time I've been at any sort of event with Butcher involved. What a man, star of the show.

Turned into a little bit of an Evans out fest towards the end but nonetheless a good evening with several laughs. Matt Holland as always a class act and good value.
This scum ticketing business
at 22:53 15 Jan 2019

Is there no way round this issue of the customer number and the person actually attending? Can someone not buy a ticket for someone else using their own customer number? Does using the friends and family thing work?

Dawkins wasn't the best was it?

Not to detract from a hugely positive day but I hope he has more in his locker!
This season's mysteries

Things you can't get your head round. I'll start with an easy one...

Lambert keeps using this word.

It's another word for sh!te isn't it?
Two strikers

Are we playing two up front yet?

If not...why not?
Likely attendance in League One
at 09:55 3 Jan 2019

I see people talking about these reducing further if we go down, but I don't know why.

With a higher chance of winning games or at least having a competitive team, with a young squad and players supposedly of good league one quality (Toto, Nolan, Edwards etc) and potentially with Lambert in charge, why wouldn't people want to come and watch us? As corny as it sounds, it would be a fresh start.

As a side note, how much would ticket prices change do we think?
Any good goals?
at 21:26 2 Jan 2019

Is it fair to say yesterday's goals were two of the very few 'good' goals we've netted this season?

As simple as it sounds it it shows how much we've lacked any real quality. So many of our goals have been lucky deflections or mistakes. I'm surprised Hurst never got more greif for declaring how unlucky we'd been with goals conceded when the times we found the net it was rarely through much skill.

First signing in January

A set piece taker. Our set pieces have been worse than Sunday league quality this season.

Then a set piece scorer. Can we have Tommy Smith?
at 16:22 26 Dec 2018

Change made 17 minutes too late, and this was forced.

Odd. Where does he see a goal coming from?
Worst side you've seen
at 16:18 26 Dec 2018

I hate it when people say "this is the worst Town side in living memory" etc

But this is.
