  1. He was quite clearly the head of a little player clique. No issues with the team or members if it being united but there comes a point where player power starts to become a little too much of an influence. Whether it’s got aggressive, words were spoken or whatever is irrelevant. IE has gone after him and felt the need to break that little clique up. It’s not personal it’s for the greater good of the squad and club moving forward fact is he had 8 months left with as yet no contact from the club about a renewal so it’s fair to say the jury was still out from the clubs perspective he’s been offered a 2 and a half year contract on allegedly better terms where he lives and the club felt it was a good move for both parties
  2. Was just going to post the same. his mouth has got away from him Evatts pretty much said shut the fuck up and take the criticism. Sarce still ain’t having it, gone to far and been fucked off
  3. Think it’s a case of Sarce standing up to IE after he’s dug the players out and it’s just snowballed if Sarce has backed the players as captain you can’t knock him but there’s a line. Hope it’s not been a case of IE being too stubborn when someone’s stood up to him after those performances this week harsh words were needed across the board.. however, if the player is THAT important to you after overstepping then mark you reign him in and keep him. Appears he’s obviously not
  4. Yeh I agree with that mate but the by product of him playing so advanced is that we’re wide open. Lee has the ability to get in those positions (granted he’s missed some sitters) but I think he’d give us more of a defensive balance 2nd worst defensive record in the league don’t forget..
  5. You don’t get sacked for being unhappy about being dropped. sacked is gross misconduct level
  6. Whilst it’s come from absolutely nowhere and it’s a shock, looking at the bigger picture I’m not too fussed he’s an ok L1 player. A decent L2 player at best and whilst I liked him as captain, someone who always tried to lead by example, said the right things he won’t be a massive miss based on where we’re trying to get to. Sheehan, Lee and MJ midfield is good enough
  7. Anywhere in those will do for me tbh
  8. Does that not tell you something though? Needs a winger to help him defensively? he’s been solid at best up to this point. Confidence is obviously at rock bottom at the min. Some need to just keep playing through others need pulling out. But the next 6-8 weeks with him doesn’t fill me with confidence and if his performances don’t improve it will turn quite toxic for the lad sadly
  9. We beat the teams below us and get nowt off the teams above us. We are where we are. The bigger picture, A drama less top 10ish finish is just what we need for once. we will always concede. So if it’s not happening up top we lose the game. Simple
  10. There were some shambolic performances in the first 6 months of IE’s reign and that was up there with them. front to back looked like a bunch of strangers playing together
  11. Not 100% on the stats but something like 5 defeats now in 30 odd games? 2 years ago that was how many wins we had in the same number of games it was a fucking chore to watch us for a while now no fucker can wait for saturdays that’ll do for me
  12. 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
  13. A good few off the boil today. 1st half Santos looked gormless, Dapo didn’t wanna be there, MJ was off the boil and Isgrove could’ve been at home. Slightly better in the 2nd half but not going to get anything at this level playing to that standard. Looked toothless too. They banked 2 rows in front really compact and we ran out of ideas
  14. 2 evenly matched teams who cancelled each other out and probably will do in the other 2 games this season. But both be right up there. first 20 minutes we controlled the ball and looked ok. They came in to it up to HT. 2nd half they pressed us better and we were camped in for a bit but neither side had any clear cut chances. Their 2 changes up front had a greater impact than the Doyle change. There was about 30 minutes where Sheehan didn’t see the ball and it showed. We lost control and they got on top. as a result I couldn’t give a shit and I don’t about Wigan as a club. It’s their following that piss me off now. They’ve wanted our attention for 30 years and now they have it they claim it’s us who see it as a rivalry 🤬 cunts to a man
  15. End holds 5200 I think? But they can’t sell to its capacity now as the concourses aren’t big enough to deal with the number of fans If that isn’t tin pot I’ve no idea what is
  16. Both sides will make changes and are both evenly matched. I won’t accept those tin pot fuckers winning a corner let alone the game for the ‘greater good’ winning breeds confidence and mentality and those wankers are due being turned over by us
  17. Beaten the play off finalists and team who made the play offs in the space of 5 days and over the course of the 2 been the better side yes defence doesn’t look as stable but going forward we look Superb (keegans Newcastle springs to mind) If anyone wants a barometer of where we are and where we could / should be expecting to be the last 5 days gives you that indication
  18. Needed 3 more got 1. Straightener outside the club shop for who has it
  19. They net those off now plus there’ll be netting down each side of ours. First block on sale for them is the 2nd one
  20. There’ll be 10k on max they’re all waiting for the league game at our place apparently 🤥 if there was ever a day these men or bury tipped up at our gaff with a bigger following than we had it would be time to pack it all up. Absolute muppet brigade
  21. Ticket office spoken to. The remaining 1500 (aside from spares that drop back in) sold in 10 minutes Club are looking for more but the issue is getting em to us in time?!? Only 20 minutes away get in the car
  22. Get 5,200 for the league yet 4000 for the cup. GMP deciding that all day
  23. As I implied above the £15 charge sits us they will think at about 4K so bang in the middle of your figures. However it being so early in the season I reckon we will sell out itll prob have a knock on effect to what we take there in the league mind
