Dirty, Horrible, Leeds

Recommended Posts

Those possessions stats are bollocks. Most of it was in their own half.

Great desire , hunger and workrate today. Could have easily have come away with a draw. Average players don't become worldbeaters overnight. Lack of quality was obvious but that's were we are right now. 

As long as we show that kind of committment every week then I'm not sure what folk can moan about .

Just carry that on to the next game and we actually have a chance.

As long as I have a hole in my arse Will buckly wont be a footballer.

we held our own but lack the strike force we could almost certainly have if we had any money at all.

the stayaways can fuck off and watch Man City for me. Negative, self pitying cunts who have nothing to offer this football club.

To be fare I went today as usual been a fan for over 40 years, but after half an hour I wished I hadn't bothered I was wet, cold, freezing and I knew we were going to lose, at the moment it's hard being a Bolton fan

I thought that header near the end was on target

Huffed and puffed, as befits a team sent out to clog. I think we are better than that.

But maybe not.

Not the nicest walk home

I have been a supporter for 50 years and this self pitying cunt as had enough! Today's game was the usual garbage football served up by a negative manager who is completely out of his depth! And wtf does he see in Buckley and Noone tea.

47 years I've been watching the wanderers through thick and thin. This is as bad as it gets, it's mind numbingly boring, frustrating, dire I could go on. There is no sign of any change, if you want to drag yourself down in that weather watching that shit then fair play to you. You deserve a medal. I'll keep paying for my season ticket, I won't be following man City any time soon but at the moment I've just bloody well had enough of parky and his dinosaur brand of football.

Worked hard today but limited quality on show.  Leeds not much better.  

I thought Lowe and Hobbs played well, but the final ball from Williams, Buckley and Noone was shocking.  We give the ball away rrally easily.  Buckley is so lightweight and easily knocked off the ball.  Magennis and Vela worked hard but offerred little threat and we have stopped scoring from set pieces.  Their keeper was dodgy under any pressure as he tried to played it out from the back but we couldn't make it count.  

Mind numbingly cold.

Can’t fault the effort today, they worked their nads off compared to some of the recent outings. Sadly nowhere near enough quality, but then again Leeds weren’t exactly streets ahead for a side chasing promotion.

It's parkys total reluctance to change the shape of the team even after going 1-0 down it took him 6 minutes to take Buckley off,then it was like for like as usual

Our problem is the same as it has been for ages,no creativity from midfield

It's no good pretending we can compete with some teams in this division anymore and the premier League that we used to enjoy is light years away.

All these clubs like city, utd, Liverpool etc are not what we are about, have you ever been?  Unless it's BWFC is it even enjoyable? NO. It feels plastic, it feels like you don't belong, it feels like you've gone into your bosses house for a pi$$ and splashed a bit on the matching pedistal set.

The first game I ever went to the Reebok we played Liverpool 1-1 felt like I was at an away game , No bring back the White we were, come from nothing upset everyone, rub there noses in it an have a damm good time along the way.

We're obviously going back to start again, as we were when I got addicted circa 73 and for the rest of the 70s that set the tone.    "Who's that coming up the hill boys?".

 Effort can't be questioned again, hard work restricted them to not a lot after first 15 mins, but when we did break it up and try to go forward our efforts were, again, embarrassingly bad. They were nothing special at the back and, against better teams than us would have conceded through trying to be City when they're not. Do we ever do any work in training on one touch play in tight areas, or is it just every other team we play that does more of it than us?

Buckley was horrendous today, cost us the goal and his other efforts were pathetic. As has been said, constantly knocked off ball, constantly overran it, a winger with no pace and no tricks. Wildschut no better, what the hell is he? Nil contribution again. Pace but f**k all else.

Lowe and Vela both good, Lowe especially, loads of good blocks, interceptions and clearances. 

Could stand days like today (an honest effort and narrow loss against a much better team), it's the approach and performance against the ones we should be targeting for points that are killing us. Ok if PP sets out in 'stay in the game's mode against the top six but in the ones we should be getting points from he has to give us something to cling to and get behind by setting out to win. Otherwise it's an admission we are the worst team in the league. 

If we're going to go down, which is inevitable at the moment, I'd sooner go with a few performances, efforts and goals I can recall. Supporting BWFC, which I've done unbroken for 47 years, is a thoroughly depressing experience. It has been a good few times before down the decades but this has a hopeless air of inevitability about it

No lack of effort but a real lack of quality......I couldn't begin to count the number of times that simple passes were fucked up, with Buckley the worst offender today. By constantly giving the ball away we couldn't create any pressure & you couldn't see where a goal was coming from until we went route 1 at the end & did cause them a few problems.

That said, it looked like a penalty to me, & 100 times more of a penalty than the one given against us last home game.

That fucking cunt of a cunt Buckley. I'm as angry as I've been since Burton away. That fucking twat had the cheek to cup his ear when he scored against the pie eaters when he's the laziest fucker to ever play for us. He's a fucking joke & if Parky can't see that then he's a fucking joke too. The goal came when he gave it up and he was trotting back - he just doesn't give a toss & he should never play for us again....(Danny Dyer pause)...Twat.

Just about warmed up.

My view of today is that I arrived at the ground with little expectation, as has been the case all recently , & this helped me to endure the 90 minutes.

The elements were a great leveller as, though Leeds pressed us well & created opportunities early, we settled into the game. It was low quality stuff but at least we were competing & grafting.

After an hour, we needed a brave manager to haul off Buckley & Magennis (both poor). Sadly we know that Parky isn’t one of those managers.

The penalty that never was, in my view, would be given 7/10 times.

There are many losing faith at the minute & I understand why. For me, I’ll continue to take my boy & meet my dad for every game as it’s the only club I’ll ever love & that won’t change. My son also needs to know that when the good times come (they will!!) he will enjoy them more than most.

I pray that we can find a way to stay up this season & start next season with a new owner, manager & some optimism.

Keep the faith chaps......

Buckley , Noone & Lowe waste of space  

losing 1-0 and nobody up 

wheater and Hobbs had a decent game .

we just allow teams to play and build confidence

gift goal & another poor referee 

business as usual. 

Hoped for more ...... But didn't expect any different ! 

Harsh on Lowe, a real battler, I've got a lot of time for him. Buckley as bad a player as I've seen consistently picked for Bolton. Understatement on Wheater and Hobbs. If that was part of a smash and grab 1-0 win like Derby or Reading, they would both get 9 out of 10, top quality defending and 100% committment.  We had worse defenders in the Prem (Knight, O'Brien to name 2 of many).

Agree on Buckley but Lowe? He's been one of the few shining lights for me in a season of absolute shite 

Me too. There's below average championship players (Lowe, Beevers, Noone) then there's players that wouldn't improve a lower div 1 side and Buckley is that.

Just seem noone penalty shout, not a pen for me.

Quest have just shown a reverse angle. Clear as day boot to the back of the Noone’s leg and nowhere near the ball. As clear a penalty as you’ll see in a long time. Though we’d have probably fucking missed it anyway.
