Recommended Posts

What i would say, is that the club seem to be using their own media bloke to get hills stuff out

Fine, no problem with that, but fcuking hell, get it edited

Couple of minutes of relevant stuff

We would all sound like dicks rambling on for ten minutes

In fact, some of us only need 10 seconds

I agree that some editing could be in order but the fact is that Hill gives long, rambling answers to questions. Cut him off part way through and it would be obvious.

A bit of media training for Hill wouldn't go amiss.

He could just start talking sense.

Iles has attempted to clarify the situation in a further tweet saying he thinks Hill's comments were geared more towards seniors not wanting to play in U-23 games.

Why not say that in the original tweet or report? He knows exactly what sort of reaction the first tweet would have caused. One or two little comments on the podcast make me think he's not a great fan of Hill either, certainly no fan of what he says and how he says it.

I reckon any local sports journo, particularly one held in the high esteem that Iles obviously is, soundbytes from Hill would be a godsend. 

Iles' job isn't to ensure that what he says and what he means are the same.

If iles had an ounce of ability, he would be getting some detail

He could point out the inexperience of the reserves, seeing as many got released and the kids remaining became first teamers

He could point out zouma is young, raw and not significantly worse than any of hills signings

He could ask hill to expand on his comments post rochdale about divides in the club

But no, hes making 'humorous' podcasts 

Interviewing hill should be a dream job for a competent journalist

Sadly, he is neither competent, nor a journalist

He fits the Bolton News perfectly. A joke of an outfit (wouldn't even dignify it by calling it a newspaper).Hes a cock just a idiot magnet for all the crazies out there.Very rarely gives any insight just plays to the peanut gallery. Shame really as there is little other media coverage of our club.

As for Hilly he needs to reign in the bullshit someone inside club needs to sort it.

Maybe there has been some editing & Hill sounded an even bigger clown in his original takes.

FWIW I don't listen to or read any of his interviews as i want to try & back him but seeing or hearing anything he says makes it very difficult.

That’s pretty much where I am. I’m clinging to the hope that it’s all just a public persona and he isn’t quite so bat shit crazy behind closed doors.

The U-23s had a good of good seasons as U-23's in their own league.

Our U-23 team now is mainly U-18's. Of course they're struggling.

My main problem with hill is I am not convinced that tactically he knows what he is doing  .But on the other hand he is stuck with a group of players who are  probably not good enough may be mentally weak  so he has to try and keep them on side so is comments about being “ proud of there effort “ etc is just to keep them going till April we all know we’re down but if they throw the towel in and we start loosing games by 5 goals again he knows he will be following them out the door in the summer . He can only criticise the ones out of the team but if he turns on the ones playing he is fucked

His comment about Leeds is interesting, about how they replicate the first team's style of play in the reserves.

Does anyone think we have a defined style of play that the youngsters could emulate? Seems to me that if they're losing all the time then they're playing pretty much the same as the first team anyway.

Although the kids were way off early doors, it was clear they had been coached to play football.

Perhaps the first team could look to replicate this.

The problem is that the kids are playing at a shit level

They then have to play against decent players if selected for the grown ups

What confuses me the most is this.

KH has never shown any level of competence managing at L1 level.

At L2 level KH has performed at a standard that would have got promotion in 2 out of the last 15 seasons.

KH says there is a 10 yr plan for the club.

If the owners decide we are getting relegated and that KH will manage to better his best performances and get promoted at the first attempt they will then need to sack him so we can progress.

Brand Bolton has died a death already so why keep him on unless they really can't attract someone better and if that's the case then I really fear we are in the situ Meldrew has mentioned more than once where we might well end up the next Stockport.

Hill is a pub team manager that won the equivalent of the football lottery in getting the Bolton job. 

He has been found out and needs to go.

You ever hear Nick Daws comments on Hill, especially when Hill requested Daws went to see him in his office and Hill was sat there just in his underpants. Bat shit crazy he is.

Must have the wrong player, it was local lad from Bury/Bolton area who played under Hill at Rochdale, was some podcast where he also told the tale about Ogrady and Hill when OGrady was supposed to be playing CF and kept pulling out to the left much to Hills anger.  Someone will know who the player was, the podcast worth listening to it’s very funny.

The only thing he got right yesterday was giving Bunney a run out I thought first 30 mins we played some good football but he needs to start playing the guys who are starting next season in the positions he sees them in we have 16 free hits to get it right but as for next season he has five games to start well if he doesn’t then get rid

8 at home, that’s 8 too many. Only hope is the spurs lad comes in and Crawford gets fit, hopefully that’ll give us a lift and we start to show something decent on the pitch.
