  1. I think yesterday was a needed reality check for people. However no one should lose sight of how far we have come in last 18 months or so. From being on the brink of going out of existence we are showing we can compete in a league we just got promoted to, we have players who clearly what to be here and play for the club. A manager who wants to play attacking football and maybe most importantly owners who 'get it' and are constantly raising the bar for the club. I know people picking faults with certain players want the club to do well and that it is just how they express their support. But let's be honest this is the most exciting time to be a Bolton fan for a very long time. It will be a roller coaster but just enjoy the ride it is a million times better than it looked like not that long ago. There is pride back in the club let's celebrate that every week rather than worrying about the little niggles that will always be there

  2. Lots of over reaction to our loss on Twitter. This is the summary in The Football League Paper. Spot on in my view. Two divisions separated these clubs last season. That gap is down to just two places and one point as Rotherham deployed previous Championship nous to do a number on the Trotters. It was a lesson individually and collectively for Wanderers. They conceded from two setplays and missed a host of chances at the other end. Chief threat Dapo Afolayan was increasingly marked and fouled out of the game. But there was plenty to suggest Bolton can bounce back.

  3. A lot of fair assessments to be fair. My 2 penn’eth worth.. We were simply outthought and outfought be a very Wiley and structured side & their manager. Looking at the football aspect alone we (again) played some lovely stuff. Not many teams in this league can live it with. However we need 5 or 6 good moves to create 1 or 2 decent chances and even then our conversion rate is very poor. Last week was an exception to the rule where every chance went in. Yesterday, Burton and Cambridge demonstrated the issues. Doyle. Works hard but I agree with a few who say he’s hit his level. Works hard (tries) to run channels but does need 2 or 3 chances to score 1 which were just not creating for him. His link up play with Dapo and Isgrove was great yesterday but he’s 30 yards away from goal. He’s not quick or strong enough at this level. CB’s are better quick and stronger and his touch to get it out of his feet is poor. There’s been a few instances over the last few games where it’s been played in but he’s tried cutting back or the balls stuck under his feet. It should be one touch and bang. back 4 are all comfortable and we play through the thirds really well but it always breaks down in the final one. You get the impression they all went to score the perfect goal and make another pass rather than get a shot off. Warne outhought Evatt yesterday. First half they pressed so high on our goal kicks we couldn’t build out. The gap between their front 4 and back 4 must’ve been 30 yards. So we had to go long. As such without any support from deep it broke down. 2nd half after they pinched 2 goals they sat off and we found it hard (as Evatt referenced) to break down 2 banks in front of us. Baka is a big miss. Physical presence with pace that can unsettle a back 4 and give us another option. I applaud IE and the teams insistence on continuing to try and play no matter what the minute but he needs to come up with other plans particularly as other teams will see how Rotherham set out against us and try to mirror it. we’ll win more then we lose playing the way we do and it’s far more enjoyable watching us try and do it this way then previous regimes. We just got done by a more street wise and knowledgable unit yesterday

  4. People need to have a bit more patience. I understand as fans we want success yesterday but after 8 games last season we were near the bottom of division 4 while they were in division 2. We'll improve gradually in every window we have Evatt & Markham in tandem. This season we'll be mid table imo but I reckon we'll challenge next season. Enjoy the ride and let's hope for a decent FA cup run to keep us all happy

  5. That's where I'm at. No disgrace losing to Rotherham, who are one of the better sides in this league. We're currently averaging enough points for a top 10 finish, which in my opinion would equate to a very successful first season back up. Too many Bolton fans seem to think we should win every game and have to have a big inquest after every game we don't win resulting in lots of criticism of our management & players. This team is our League 2 team plus Sheehan who we signed from League 2. Rotherham were in the Championship.

  7. Incredible strike rate had Jimmy Greaves - 132 goals in his first 4 seasons with Chelsea, 266 goals in 379 games for Spurs - 85 more than Harry Kane. 422 goals in 602 total club games.His strike rate for England was a goal every 1.24 games. He retired through injury aged just 31. Phenominal striker was Jimmy Greaves….RIP

  10. That’s something that really bugs me. Surely if you stand onside, you have a decent run to attack the ball

  11. This is why I dislike the Massives more than Utd its their bellend fanboys round here ”Fuck off back under your rock and go and support your tinpot club” ”It’s really difficult to get to a midweek game” (ground is 2 miles away) ”Loads of people are on holiday” (yesterday’s empty seats) Just fuck off.

  12. I thought completely the opposite. They did a job on Dapo and I think his head had gone yet we kept trying it time after time

  13. Dunno, maybe to support your team? Plenty of matches have 2 goals put in in the last 10 mins or so. Everyone is so much in a rush these days.

  16. Really?? I’m presuming you mean live? Regardless, whether you’ve watched Doyle live or on Ifollow, coming to the conclusion that he is just plain “poor” is astoundingly narrow minded. Really strange post

  17. After what we went through I have found a more empathetic side of myself. I don't think I would be as sympathetic if I hadn't gone through that actuall rollercoaster myself. I don't want to go through my feelings of what seemed like our impending doom. But it was, outside of family & friends, the most shittest time of my life. DCFC will be ok. They will take whatever comes their way on the chin and bum around getting things straight again. On the whole rival football fans "can" be pretty decent.
