  1. Doyle has 1 league goal, non from open play, and 1 assist, in 16 games!!. Yet people defend him, he is fundamental to us failing to score in multiple games, he is shit.
  2. Taking Delf off and moving Dapo wide left has made us worse.
  3. Never runs hard to get in front of the defender for crosses that’s for sure
  4. ‘We just need to get on the end of one of these balls going into the box!’ Think the commentator nailed it for our season so far, not just this half… Some good football at times.
  5. This is spot on. Week in week out the stats show we do not create 'many' clear cut chances at all, that's why we can all remember the Doyle misses as generally they're the only one the whole match. As others have said previously, rarely do the opposition goalkeepers have many saves to make when playing against us, yet this isn't a narrative Evatt would want so reiterates the few chances we do make. I know I keep harping on about 15 matches without a goal for our striker, 14 Doyle, and 1 Baka, I find that an astounding statistic for a team that plays so much football; not enough of it is in the final third I would suggest and this is what most opposition know. We will never progress until this situation is rectified, but I am not sure Evatt even acknowledges there is an issue and that's what worries me. Some strikers in this league already 10+ goals, if it wasn't for Dapo's long range efforts we really would be struggling. I agree with Rudy on the defensive side, but doenst appear we have got the defense or attack right as yet. And can someone teach Santos to stop ball watching and prevent strikers just running across him, is it really that hard?
  6. Pretty much where I'm at ⬆️
  7. Conversely these same principals put us 20th, our lowest ever position when he didn't have the players to play that way, or the sense to find an alternative for half a season. Last season did not need to be as hard as he made it. This season his footballing principles have lost us more points than they have gained if you analyse the matches. Alongside this our CF has yet to score from open play in 15 games, 15!! That is crazy, so I still think our style flatters to deceive and is more to do with Evatt's ego than looking to eek out every point available to the team. He really needs a dose of pragmatism. That's not to say I don't enjoy it when we on blob, or that he needs to move away from the fundamentals, but the free kicks and corners, they are huge opportunities we just piss up the wall to score a goal! And people saying one more window, Evatt signed Kanchunga! Added to the Crellin and Sarc issues, so I think there as many questions as answers with Evatt tbh. And he may come good, hope he does, but don't understand the almost cult like status he has with some on here, I really dont get it. The fact Burton are above us blows my mind if we are all that! And that Wigan shambles will live long in the memory. So I'm in the @Not in Crawley camp and agree with @jules_darby has said earlier.
  8. There is load's that agree, but too much like hard work on here if you say anything negative about Evatt or his tactics... Just get pounced on by certain posters. Evatt's ego is writing cheques his talent can't cash... The cheeky cunt this week trying to tell us wek should be remember how far we come from 20th in 4th division, i.e. the place he put us, the lowest position this club has ever been, with his shite signings and ridiculous tactics with the players he had.
  9. Evatt wanted him all summer too, utter gash https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bolton-elias-kachunga-signing-explained-21286690
  10. Not sure Evatt think's like that unfortunately
  11. Mixing it up, not a phrase we're that accustomed to over last year or so....
  12. But why does it need to be one or the other?, why can't you have a physical presence up front and still play football into feet etc, they don't need to alter the fundamentals. I haven't watched tonight but doenst sound like Bakayoko has done much unfortunately. However, which ever way you cut it that is 14 games!!, almost a third of the season, without a goal from open play from our striker!! That has to raise questions of the formations and tactics if nothing else, that is a crazy stat.
  13. I am hoping having Baka up front with the ability to hold the ball up may mean only Sheehan needs to play close to him, Lee can help MJ more and just hit box when play dictates. Much like the Davies, Nolan, Speed trio did.
  14. Was taking the piss tbh but I agree, unfair to lay it on just HB for Saturday, the other two have had plenty of chances.
  15. Two out of three ain't bad!
  16. Stormed off after all being benched!! 🤔😂
  17. I think more questions need to be focussed on Evatt's selections. He chose Baka in front of him and that clearly didn't work, when he could have chosen Isgrove to help HB out a bit? So I would hope IE admits some culpability.
  18. Doyle for Baka, let's just give ourselves an easy out ball given all the changes that are coming and the disruption it will have on how much total football we play! Don't know much about Aimson but he looked ok against Liverpool so maybe worth a debut against his old team too..
  19. I watched it like a fool. Interesting to note nothing shown behind the scenes after kickoff, hardly surprising really...
  20. I don't disagree in him wanting his style but shouldn't he be more open minded to alternate ways of playing when needs must? As an example Wigan were turning the ball around and up the pitch and on the edge of our box in a matter of seconds, we never do that? And this was from our free kicks and corners!!. We're Wigan not entertaining for there fans, playing in there style? No General goes on a battlefield with a single strategy or tactic. Evatt needs a little dose of pragmatism, a plan B, C and D to manage what is going on in front of him. It doesn't mean he has to go away from his beliefs in the wider context but should be a little more open minded to alternatives in my opinion.
  21. https://www.bwfc.co.uk/news/2021/august/wanderers-go-on-the-attack-with-kachunga-acquisition/ Primary target from Evatt's quotes, and I agree he would be nigh on impossible to move on I would suspect.
  22. Thought he was the one he had been chasing all summer??? If so.....
  23. Best team in the league, Evatt brings it on with his bollocks!
