9 games in, 7 defeats and only 1 win, how disappointing 

The lowest depths the club has ever plunged, not careful we could go out of the league here 

So much hope as well when the season started 

I’d stick with IE, at least until January, but it’s clear that something has gone drastically wrong here. One of the biggest budgets in the league but so far we’ve got nothing to show for it 

2 more defeats , fuck him off , we are crap.

IE is absolutely spot on. Hes still got my full support and fwiw I’m confident that he will sort it. some of u lot thought it was gonna be a cake walk this season. So do some of our pla

They are easy, negative observations that anyone with an ounce of football knowledge would struggle to disagree with.  And of course you have the higher ground as you’ve got a whole host of poor

I hate playing Oldham. Never got over that Darren Beckford goal. Bogey team, going to curl up in the cupboard under the stairs and drink a 10 pack of Guinness (I will have a bucket)

I thought it was Sarcevic's most lively performance that I've seen, seemed to get on the ball a bit more today. It's not saying much though and he still didn't do well enough.

Usually, even in our shit teams of recent times we had a player I thought, maybe they could do something eg. Ameobi, Alf, Madine in his purple patch, Crawford last year to an extent... Just not seen anyone yet who we can depend on to drag up the standard and level of the team, everyone looks equally poor. 

Evatt said today, it's not going to stop him trying to do things the way he wants them, so I guess we're persevering with the system/style, his job now is to make the players perform better in that style. Mixture of fitness, concentration, desire and decision making. If we were dominating the game and had lost to 2 set pieces/sucker punches then fair enough, but Oldham had their fair share of chances today and we had our usual couple of decent chances. For our style and possession we should be making 5-10 clear cut chances each game.

I made the point earlier but in long term, losing today may be a good thing as it really is a massive wake up call. Evatt said in the prematch interview something like 4 points from the last 2 games, that's title winning form. Trying to be positive but also totally unreflective of our performances. 1 point today wouldn't have been great but would have been passable. Losing today is unacceptable for our club size, budget, ambitions and not sure where Evatt even starts with the team but it needs a good shake up. Personnel, formation, whatever, I just hope he changes it next week.

Sarce/Comley/Doyle/Delfouneso/Crawford, all senior players in the squad and need to step up because they're letting us down massively. Maybe it's the manager's fault asking too much too soon and putting too much pressure on us, I don't know anymore but those senior players have to do better than they are doing imo.

Simple not good enough no midfield whatsoever Comley is a pub player at best and Sarevic is bloody awful as for Crawford what as happened to him. 

IE needs to sort this and fast and his post match comments are now sounding like Hill.

Do you think so? He basically intimated he's on borrowed time on the one I saw.

Sarcevic could have ended with an assist if Doyle had hit target 2nd half but otherwise looked like a player whose stats were good in a team that suited him. Here and there a few decent contributions but not enough and faded as badly as half a dozen others last 20 mins. For a big lad gets knocked off ball too easily

My issue here is the supposed focus on stats, can be misleading if they were produced in teams that were set up to suit their best attributes. We look to have a few too many of that ilk and not enough with a big enough pair of bollocks to direct, organise and take a bit of personal responsibility for making things happen. 

The D o F role has never convinced me,  shady, always behind the scenes, no shit sticks to them, never to be seen or heard when the players they've targeted turn out to be wank. In our case, the pup we have been sold is a fair bit less Evatt and a lot more Phoenix. Yes, Evatt comes out with the soundbites about having tracked this or that player for ages, so who are we to say he's telling porkies when Phoenix remains a mystery, protected by those he's bullshitted into giving him a big job and a free rein when his pedigree is virtually non existent

Good honest interview with Evatt.

But apart from the lad from Luton at full back every single one of them was shite.

sloppy passing, slow and lethargic all of them.  Win the ball and give it away, passes behind the runner, blind passes across the middle of the park - just basics.

no energy, desire and will to win.
 

doyle dropping deeper and deeper.  All trying to do flicks instead of easy balls- it was a shit show.

 

if you were in charge of Salford tonight after that, you would have been sacked - simply not good enough.

 

4 home games, 1 goal and 1 draw - the natives would have been going ballistic and at this level utter wank.

 

i have no idea where we go from here as he Evatt has signed this shower of shite and they simply don’t look good enough.

 Back to the red wine 🍷

Evatt’s comments about some not being good enough sounds like he’s firing back at Toby and his shiity analysis wagon wheel

2 posts which reflect our disappointment and identify the issues we see. But one is rational, one irrational.... I’m sure we can all work out which is which....

 

It’s amazing how having an opinion about something you care about is classed as irrational behaviour when its based on an honest assumption.

If the manager hasn’t started to “lose” elements of the dressing room already with his statements why aren’t they playing for him ?

We need other options, 2 good wingers and a proper centre forward would give us another option. 

Biro, morais on a contract till end of season, there you go pal get out there see what you can do.He'd tear it up that lad and would love ro be back at Bolton in whatever capacity.

Lets be honest He'd be worth a punt now.

I’d take Morais all day long and he’s a great personality would lift the squad.
