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

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 like the kid but we’re struggling as it is with Comley/Tutte and Sarc with Crawford slightly further forward....IMO you’re Not using him in this 4-4-2 folk are clamouring for (Like Elmander at Wembley), unless you're dropping one of the front 2 or playing him on the right 

if we’re swapping out Crawford it’s not changing that much to be the panacea we’ve been looking for 

 

I dont see anyone in the squad that's capable of winning the battles in midfield, physically.  Either too small/lightweight (Darcy, Crawford, Comley, Tutte, White) or just too slow and cumbersome (Sarcevic).  So in that respect nothing is lost to have Darcy in there, but you gain his "engine" and enthusiasm, a quick brain and more attack minded game than most of the others.  Even if he's not in the first 11 it still doesnt make sense to me how he hasnt been an option from the bench for even 5 minutes when 22 other outfield players have had a chance, some after walking into the club 2 days before a game.  And as you say - play him wide on the right occasionally if he cant be in the middle, it would immediately improve our crossing for me, as well as being a dead ball option.  If we were creating chances without him or looking solid in midfield fair enough but IE is getting it wrong for now.

He should have started Tutte yesterday and it could have been a different outcome.

I’m with you on Tutte should have played. I can only think it was his previous comments about him not being ready for 90 mins and there being a game on Tues?

We can all have opinions on who should play but if its based on who's training the best its all pointless speculation.  Tutte hasnt trained as well as Comley, and so on.  Taft must be one of the worst trainers (assuming he's not injured), and IE wouldn't have found that out until after he signed him.

I train well; maybe I will get a game

It’s not going to be all about training but he does see them 95% more then we do.

I believe his training comments were aimed at Darcy and not Tutte though

What I find a bit worrying is that he's pitched himself as a progressive football man and is trying to use 40 year old tactics to motivate players by publically calling them all shit.

He called every single one of them out and the only common denominator between them is the time they've spent training under him and his staff.

Not much between Comley & Tutte, both bang average L2 players, although Tutte seems slightly better at the moment, said it before, we should have retained Lowe, we don't have any ball winners now White is injured and that midfield needs shoring up big time.

Crellin looks okay, although it looks like his mother has cut his hair using the old saucepan trick 🧑

I suppose having signed so many players, some are going to be shit. You can do all the background checks in the world, speak to former team mates/coaches etc but you’ll never get it 100% right.

As time goes by, he’ll weed out the poor trainers, them who can’t settle in the area etc. Its going to take time. Now is the time for patience

Listen to the interview again, he said some of them think they have made it just because they are here at Bolton Wanderers, by that he's referring to their attitude and their work rate isn't good enough for this club, he's bang on. 

I'm not absolving him from any blame, I'm glad its hit home and he's pissed off, our fans won't show the same patience like he got at Barrow and he's now under pressure.

10 of Oldham’s starting line up was all new to the club with a mixture of frees & loans

I know what you mean that they are both Div 2 players, but Tutte just looks far better on the evidence so far, assured and safe in possession with a football brain, and forward thinking.  Not going to rip up trees granted.  Agree on Lowe, if keeping him was an option, I always assumed Div 2 would be beneath him (it is) so its very frustrating he settled for Salford when at least Blackpool or Fleetwood would have made more footballing sense.  Unsure what you mean about White though, if he's won any tackles in the games he's played I must have missed them.  Looks very non league to me.

Kewell was only appointed on 1st August as well so presumably not as long to make signings or bed the team in.

Goals wise he’s got them firing averaging 2 a game
