Won nothing yet, stay miserable for another hour or so yet.

after 7pm on an away day - don’t pretend you are usually sober under normal circumstances

0-2 Delf & Doyle. A professional,textbook away performance & no goalkeeping gaffes.

Being a bit nit picky as we played pretty well overall, however, we dont half choose some bad options when we're attacking!

Given IEs rhetoric I assumed this part of the game would be a given, and now we sorted the other shit out this needs to be next on the list.

That was such an open game we should have created far more clear cut chances than we did, so that is a worry.

I also think Crawford doesn't do enough in that free role he has, far far too wasteful.

At least we're looking up now though!!

Not getting too giddy but we are close to the play offs without ever getting close to what I think we can do.

If we keep pace/gain a few points between now and January, a couple of tweaks and I firmly believe we can push for top 3. It’s a shit league, confidence will get you many points

Another poor team in Scunthorpe tuesday we need to be more ruthless in front of goal 

They're all poor in this league, but we can't treat Scunthorpe any different to the others.  In last 8 days won 2 aways and denied a 3rd win in 93rd minute today.  Tiny margins between top and bottom.

Yeh you're spot on, i've yet to see a decent side in this division and there is so much more to come from us i feel.

Onwards and upwards

They only scored in 91st minute though.

Still, maybe I’m thinking too much about last time we went there but it will be a tough game

The timing of their goal was a bugger, gave them a lift for the 2nd half after they were looking well beaten & left us looking a bit unsure whether to stick or twist......but overall we deserved our win & i liked the winding down  the clock stuff  at the end. 

Gilkes is nice & calm in goal, Jones was good....just a shame he's not left footed !.......Sarce looks like a leader, & Santos easily MOM.

Hurrah.

For too many saturdays over the last 3 or 4 years, I’ve felt like shit and wanted football away from my thoughts. Makes so much difference when we win no matter how we play.

Still not back in love with the game but a few wins and I’ll grow back into it.

We’re Bolton Wanderers, we’re on our way back

It’s night and day from were we were last month . Good to watch could of been better in the last 3 rd but what we are doing when we don’t have the ball closing down is the most impressive and will take us forward

Was like watching Brazil, we will piss this league.

Evatt should be managing much higher than 3rd Division.

Don't like to say it but I told you so !

I wanted him sacked after conceding 5 at orient and refusing to drop the keeper and the team looking a total shambles couldn’t see it changing. 
But glad we didn’t as long as   we look like we’re going the right way which we do now happy to stick with it on the ups and down  🤛. Just no more orient games 😃

We need to reconsider this standing in the penalty area when taking goal kicks. It just invites pressure on. I get he wants to play football but once the keeper is going long it cause a lot more problems than it solves.

Depends how they do it. If we have 3 looking for the ball, the opposition have 3 looking to press, a quick long ball to out 2 up top while they have 3 up field, if we win the knock down, we can break.

All about making the right decisions quickly enough

Aye, I thought the same. I don't mind it if we set up that way to drag them forward and create space, then go long. We did that a couple of times today.
