Can't remember the last time we won a game so comfortably. 

Can't remember the last time we played against 10 men and made it look like it was us who had the extra man.

DazBob can't remember the last time we won a game so comfortably. 

He also can't remember the last time we played against 10 men and actually made it look like it was the opposition who'd had the man sent off.

ie we normally play shit v 10.

Neither rocket science nor rocket salad.

I dont for one second believe that that you type anything without a dick in your cheek and a maggot on your hook , you are not a bolton fan nor a football fan ......you prefer womens netballl but only

Hugh.   Fuck off. 

Th'East Midlands Whites haven't really gone anywhere to just get back from, but are drinking heavily nevertheless.

The early goal made such a huge difference, it was like a weight being lifted from their shoulders. We’d have stuck three or four past Barrow had we scored the first one at a similar time.

Saturday is probably the only game now where I’d take a point beforehand, but even saying that there’s absolutely no reason we can’t go there and win as long as we can adapt to their cabbage patch.

No it wasn't, he said the opposite to what he meant, which isn't straightforward for me as I'm a bit thick..

 

 

JFTR  I said exactly what I meant, not the opposite.  I thought it was pretty simple to understand :)  Normally, when the opponent gets sent off, it's us who play like we're a man short, not them.

Anyway, back to the game :)...

Whilst Oldham looked more dangerous than us in the opening stages they played right into our hands.  I'd much rather teams come out and attack us, and I'm sure Evatt would too.

We seem to struggle against teams that sit back with 9 men behind the ball and then look to counter us.  Barrow game a prime example.  We got lucky they fluffed their two big chances on the counter attack

Good point, not sure how Bradford play, but at least we are making teams think, apparently Mansfield were the better team last night, they had their best chances and had more of the ball, but Bradford got the result... sign of a good team ?, luck or new manager/s bounce ?

We will find out Saturday.

dunno, I guess recently yes, but our biggest problem early doors was teams attacking us

whilst we've seemingly sorted that out at the back, we still lack a real cutting edge, that's what we need to work on - an own goal and one off the post, I "expected" more against 10 men

in any case, I'm not complaining, but I think one of these days we ought to dick someone 5-0 with everything going in like Vale did against us

edit: just to add to that, I think we're more likely to see those performances in the next month or so when we come up against teams in midtable with nowt to play for and one eye on their staycations, the next two games will be tight, so need to sharpen up going forward

We didn’t play that well last night (not poor but not as good as some other recent games) and need to get the tackles in against Bradford which were woeful at times. Dapo was excellent and had his best game so far plus the back 4 did their almost flawless performance. Lee had a good game and Williams average for his normal high standards. Doyle was disappointing again IMO and for once the subs weakened the team. Still a good result and even if we were complete dog shit as long as we win that’s all that matters whilst we get out of the bottom tier

Agree that we don't have to play "well" to win in this league, as long as we are solid, have a reliable keeper and we keep 11 men on the pitch and don't concede a pen.  Throw in a bit of the rub of the green and we should win every game.

Not sure we've played any better recently, maybe 1st half v Scunthorpe although little end product.  We are just doing enough, creating little especially in the 2nd half, aside from last 15 of Mansfield.

I'm not sure you have to actually play well to be succesful in this league.  You just have to not make many mistakes in a game.

We've cut those out massively at the back since we went to four at the back and we're on our best winning run in years without even hitting top gear yet.

It looked like they had watched our games on iFollow and thought they had time to settle down. When we went straight for them, and played high up with even Santos and Baptiste in their half they didn't know whether to have a shit or a haircut.  We only gave them about 20 yards to play in. We got men behind them and made it easy. (like we should have done against Barrow).

Gethin Jones had a great game y the way.

First 10 minutes they were the better team ! We were getting on top before the red card.

Second half we lacked a good ball into the box, once the subs started the game became disjointed.

We had three opportunities in the second half when a simple pass would have been a certain goal; multi coloured Maddison had two

Maddison needs to just settle down a bit and stop trying to score a worldie every time he gets the ball, getting more and more frustrated with himself with each attempt. Good to see that he’s desperate to succeed though, and I’m sure once he gets that first goal then he’ll start to choose better options.

Any other player attempts the passes Maddison did last night not a word is said, but because it's Maddison he's criticised for it.

That said, I do think he needs to relax a little when he comes on.  He seems to be trying too hard to have an instant impact.

He also doesn't do himself any favours with odd boots and a stupid headband.

I imagine IE’s comment about folk not making the correct choice in front of goal was directed at Maddison. As you say, twice last night he tried breaking the nets when the correct choice would’ve been to pass it around the defenders blocking his path. Problem is, however, we’ve also had players who go for a pass when a shot would’ve been a better option.

If we had players doing all things right all game though, we’d be on European trips in the Champions League.

tbf the headband hides some horrific tattoo's & deflects attention from the worst haircut I've seen for a long time.

He’d be out on the left for me. Do the simple things, find feet with the easy ball.

I think that’s unfair on Maddison Matt. I just think it’s his positivity and drive not his intention to score a worldie. I love how as soon as he gets the ball he looks to go forward and make something happen. Ok it’s not come off for him yet but I’m sure it will eventually.

Maddison looks like sumert a kid would create on FIFA. He'll cut in from the right and wallop one into the top corner on Saturday, it's a matter of time.

We’re not quite there yet imo. Still too much arsing around with it at the back, we choose the wrong option too many times - passing when we should shoot and vice versa. We often have players who turn into trouble and finally, there are still one or two bottled tackles. Once we hit top gear,  we’ll spank someone.

Still too many unrealistic expectations on here for me

I make last night a solid 8

And it would've been a nine up to 70 minutes

I agree, but remember where we were only 6 weeks ago.
