  1. Back home after a cracking day and confessed to the missus that I'd had a couple of cuddles and the odd cheeky kiss today. She was alright when I explained who Ian Evatt and Shazza were. I'm not a gay or a lesbian but got to say I did enjoy it and I said 'Thankyou'
  2. And now I finally know who captainmed is!
  3. Had the 500 problem but sorted. Dont log in using the sign in top right. Click on live match centre to get to match and it lets you sign in then. Works a treat.
  4. Nobody has commented on how well the final part of the move to the goal was constructed. Doyle does a massive job in dragging the centre halves to the front post. Fonz does a bit behind him. Keeper and all defenders expecting ball at front post. Pulled back to the edge, everyone on front post and a big hole to the right of the goal for Jones to pop it in. Not an accident. Well done IE, coaching staff and players.
  5. Happy days with the win and fair play all involved. Other clubs now realise a shit and narrower pitch won't suit us. Hopefully our groundsman has been told as it hasn't been the best recently. IE deserves a medal with what he's done over the past few months. Players playing for each other and the club. Gilks - happy as fuck when he comes out to grab a cross. Can't remember him failing on a cross or a high one, but a bobbly bouncer in front and the butterflies flutter. Fingers crossed he won't get battered and go off one day and it could be a turning point this season. No excuse for no keeper on the bench now. Jones - happy for the lad. Seems a good honest trier and knows his job. Popped up today and glad he did. Doing great. Baptiste - no nonsense. Knows his qualities (reading the game) and his liabilities (pace). Decent passes when he has time and gets rid when he's in the shit. Santos - whoever (and I think it's IE) has taught this lad the art of defending deserves a medal. Improved leaps and bounds over the season and a proper, proper defender. New contract well deserved. Man mountain again. John - bobbly, shite pitch doesn't suit, but still class on and off the ball. Williams - something significant changed with him and that was his positioning when we didn't have the ball. Watch - a ball played into one of the oppo in front of the back 4 and MJ is face to goal and winning the second ball if there's any slight bounce off. That aside he breaks up play and has a decent engine and wins the odd header even though not sure he's any idea where he's heading it to. Lee - class. Lot's been said about his ability and the fact he's playing a couple of leagues lower than he could. He's a massive team player. In instances where his football brain is slightly ahead or a team mate fails to control, there's no frustration and he just get's on with it. Sarcevic - I like him. Shame about today and the injury. A poor man's Campo in a way. Problem is his mis-control is three yards and not one, so he can't dive on the ball and take a quick free-kick. Afolayan - raw talent. They tried to wind him up and got on with it. Obviously brought up on a decent surface so not not exactly suited by the odd bobble. He'll be a 'good little 'en' as my dad used to say about David Lee. Delfounso - quiet today on the ball, but made space for others with his movement off the ball. Worried sometimes that he isn't a David Reeves trier type but doing a decent job. Doyle - nothing but admiration for this lad. Never his game today with the oppo set-up and shite pitch. We don't have a 'big lad' hold it up type. IE knew that, hence no Miller. Elbouzedi - great job when he came on. We have no lump to hold it up so the IE instructions were obviously, run the channels and hit the corner. Chuffed with him and the fact he looked a bit trimmer. Isgrove - am I unconvinced? Maybe. Does track and holds the ball up ok at times. No idea about the diagonals aimed for his head. One for a decent surface and the sun shining for me ..... and an extra yard of pace. Arthur - learning his trade at a late age. Obviously listening and doing what he's told. Like him. Been around a bit and the 'arm round the shoulder, this is what you can do and will do' treatment is working.
  6. Bolton players stayed in Reading the night before the 1st leg. Quite a few were out clubbing the night before in Valbonnes in Caversham by the Thames. Closing time Thommo was hammered and others had had quite a few. 2.30am me and a mate helped Thommo back over the bridge to the hotel. He was fucked. 3.00pm the following day I was hanging out my arse in the home end with quite a few others. How some of them lads playing got their socks on I'll never know. Ran out of steam a bit that day. Wonder why?
  7. Observations. Doyle - you look at his goals over the past three years and it's pull backs and crosses on the break to a great extent. We don't do that. Lucky to have him and his predatory instinct in the box when we get it in there. Return is fantastic. Tackling - twice tonight Jones bottled it and Thomason once. Get some Beckenbauer Supers and it won't hurt. Mr Grey might have a couple of spare pairs ....... size 6. Santos - Man mountain that lad. Waited all season for him to win a header in the oppo box and it was shite. Not moaning. These lads look like they'll run through walls for their teammates so fair play. Enjoyed it tonight.
  8. Not doing too bad. Wouldn't mind some of 'em showing as much enthusiasm as that bloke in the hi-vis in the red seats when he's getting the ball back.
  9. I was in full length plaster due to breaking my leg playing footie. Ex-missus drove me up from Reading to both games. Back seat of a fiesta was not comfy. Margaret from the ticket office was an angel. Parking at Burnden and seats on the subs bench for the first game and freebies for Anfield. Thanks to the ex (except when she asked Joh Barnes if he was the bloke from the Lucozade ad) and the lovely Margaret! Anyone remember her?
  10. I'm in on the Ifollow. Fuck all else to do. 0-0
  11. Worst - getting stuffed by the pie eaters pre-season after a decent win against Accrington giving us false hope. Best - Wimbledon away was ok but spoiled by the long walk from the pub and a few of our lot going past on the bus. So it has to be Cheltenham. That moment where you can't help but celebrate even though you shouldn't really be there and then that lad appears from our left to celebrate with the players in front of us.
  12. Tom Huddlestone could do a job as a freebie. Providing he's got enough cash in the bank and doesn't need a final pay day.
  13. Last time I saw Morecambe play was when I was involved with Farnborough Town. They turned up in the Bolton team coach. The silver one with the crest on the side. Bit of a buzz to see it at our ground. Pretty sure we got dicked.
  14. I think I heard years back that Paul Mariner is a Farnworth lad too. No idea from whereabouts though.
