So was there a handshake
at 20:23 8 Oct 2019

Or a snub?
I’m very happy
at 19:16 28 Sep 2019

But it will be even better when we have beaten a side in the top 10 or two.

time for the diamond again?
at 15:36 16 Sep 2019

If we play Garbutt as left back and Kane V-Y as right - both are pretty attacking and could provide the width.

Then we can play Judge or Nolan just behind two front strikers.

With skuse sitting at base.

And Downes / Huws / Bishop / Dozzell as other mids.

I think that could work with the players we have. Will also allow us to keep 2 up front.

Maybe we will all reflect on Evans as our owner
at 12:40 26 Aug 2019

There have been times when I've been as frustrated with Marcus Evans. The lack of significant investment has meant a steady decline. However, you cant knock his commitment to keeping this club running and sustainable. And putting in money every year.

Im not sure Bolton wont yet get a reprieve but if they dont they are a significant club to go bust and out of business. There will probably be even more ramifications for financial fair play being adhered to in the long term.

I am a bit gutted if we lose our 3 points and 5 goals though! I know thats hugely shallow given Bolton are possibly losing their club.
When will huws start?
at 12:54 24 Aug 2019

I would rest skuse today and play huws from the start. Downes as the holding mid.

Norwood goals
at 09:50 12 Jun 2019

Just watched his goals from last year. Hugely impressive. Pace. Strength. Good headers. And left and right foot finishes. Doesnt matter what league it is, they were top quality finishes. Better defenders may stop as many chances but it looks that if he gets one, he knows how to finish.

You cant pile too much pressure on the lad and the whole team need to become more prolific goal scorers. But a very promising signing.
uefa cup final ticket allocation
at 09:48 10 May 2019

from the BBC site:

Baku's Olympic Stadium has a capacity of 68,700 but Uefa has allocated only 6,000 tickets to each club, a decision Arsenal described as "disappointing", adding that it presents them with "extreme difficulties" in how to allocate tickets".

Thats nuts. nearly 70k stadium and only 12k go to fans of the clubs. 6k each to arsenal and chelsea. How would you even know if you are Arsenal who to let have them given they must have about 50k season ticket holders?

It should be 90% to the clubs and 10% to the UEFA brigade.
This 12000 total to get a reduction
at 16:08 7 May 2019

To be quite honest - I'd rather the club kept the money and we bought players!!

is everyone really that desperate for what would be about £30.

What we really want is a good team to watch next year?
We are not coming straight back next year without some really good signings
at 22:14 27 Apr 2019

Let’s face it we show no signs of having any momentum going into the new season. We have no goal scorer. Keane looks like he would be a huge gamble to sign given his injury record.

Our midfield isn’t creative enough. Our defence is weak. I have been reluctant to berate chambers but he looked so shakey today. Nsiala did ok but always has a huge blunder in him every game.

The pluses are bishop, judge, downes, lankaster and that really is about it, I think skuse will be ok in div 1. And one of the two keepers.

It was pretty depressing stuff today. But I will be there next season. Please god this has to be the bottom! But I fear we may be down for a few seasons.

when do the season ticket renewals go out?
at 17:06 18 Apr 2019

I havent had mine yet...did they just announce the prices the other day - or were people receiving them as well?
if you had to assign blame in this comical OG...
at 09:56 5 Apr 2019

Surely the keeper has to take some. He went too wide.

Player was tad unlucky that the pass seemed to skip on the surface.

I reckon thats 60% keepers fault?

Mick mills comments
at 11:34 1 Apr 2019

I couldn't go Saturday but listened to Mick mills at the end of the game. He said Andre has to do more than just a couple of nice passes. Edwards far too hit and miss. And challobah (who I'm less worried about as his time here is limited) didn't seem interested in that he didn't try and drive forward and just coasted.

Is that all fair?

I do think we need far more players scoring 7 out of 10 every game.

I was at Lincoln today
at 20:18 16 Feb 2019

Danny Roe did ok. He always looks busy. But still looks like that div 2 or 1 is really his level. Though of course that includes us next year. I don’t think though he would be a big loss to move on.

Jordan Roberts stared as piggy in the middle at half time. 5-10k a week to do thar! Didn’t even come on as one of their 3 subs.

Stick with lambert
at 17:56 5 Jan 2019

He will do a good job in time. That time will be in division one. But we need some solidity. Plus we are generally starting to play better football. Someone on the phone in started the ex Norwich manager line. That's just total nonsense. You can tell Lambert is desperate to do well for the club. The damage was done before him.

Evans needs to have a hard think about what he wants in running a club. Some of the blame is his as he has let contracts run down and let key players go too easily. If he doesn't have the financial stomach for it anymore he should do a Portsmouth and hand the club back to the fans ....And remove the debt.

But the whole club needs to stay behind Lambert. He should have at least a full season before any judgement.

*all the new players have been unbelievable”

Thoughts on last night
at 13:40 29 Nov 2018

Cole Skuse was excellent last night. He was finding space, pinging passes. Lambert seems to be getting the absolute max out of him.

Challobah and Downes both need to step up. England U20 players. They need to affect the game much more.

Sears can play wide left after all!

Both fullbacks, but Spence particularly not great. Need much more going forward.

We cant rely on aging Chambers and Skuse. Lack of senior experienced pros in mid to late 20s is telling.

Still "enjoyed" it more than what we saw under Mick. I think Lambert is the right man for the club. The trouble may be that another half a season of taking defeats is going to do alot of harm for next season. A season that will surely be in Div 1. We need very shortly to be planning for that to get a head start. That may mean blooding the youngsters more to get them game time in preparation.
Jordan roberts
at 19:24 3 Nov 2018

I have to confess that I stupidly got Jordan Roberts confused with Jordan graham. So I’m quite pleased that our permie player did so well. He looks more the part in that role than Harrison did.

And I have a good feeling about lambert. He feels like a guy that can pull the fans and players together. We may go down because of where we are and needing some new players in. But I think we will start to improve from here onwards.

Im a fan of 3-5-2
at 19:12 18 Sep 2018

Allows two up front. I dont think we have the players to make 4-3-3 work with one isolated player.

Plus is allows another centre half to defend the set pieces.

But the wingbacks have to be on their game.

And lets face it, hes tried various players in the other formation. so lets give it a go.

COYB. For Beattie. And for all of us!
