  1. I reckon it was purely and simply because John is on his way out. It could have happened in August, it probably will in January.
  2. The last time we scored from open play in the first half of a league game was Charlton. Seventh game of the season on September 3rd. That's 12 games ago. Never known owt like it.
  3. Chuffed we salvaged a point but it's the same pattern ..no first half goal, huffing and puffing a lot and then a late facer saver/face savers. It can be exciting but it's not the stuff of solid promotion contenders.
  4. Eleven blokes off our street could beat these. Commentator said they'd been in a training camp for six weeks. What have they been practicing at? Connect Four?
  5. Was just thinking that's completed the first round of games against the dregs that count as local derby games this season - Morecambe, Accrington, Fleetwood. Played three, won three. So much for them being jinx teams. In fact looking at our overall record against them in this (hopefully not much longer) phase of lower divisions football and it's only Accrington who've been a problem. * Fleetwood: Played 7, Won 6 Drawn 0 Lost 1 * Morecambe: Played 5, Won 2 Drawn 3 Lost 0 * Accrington: Played 6 Won 2 Drawn 1 Lost 3
  6. Big gamble. It'd be his first job in management. Someone should give him some sound advice. Clearly no experienced manager wants anything to do with them.
  7. The BWFC supporting side of my head is dazzled and excited by another incredible late comeback. All three of our most recent league wins have now been of this nature - Accrington, Burton, today. The calmer side of my head is saying we'd have had less chance of winning any of them without the big summer rule change re the ability to use more subs. A lot to think about! But for now the ale sunk tonight will be tasting mighty fine.
  8. Good un. We all remember the players under Big Sam when we had those four top eight consecutive finishes but there were some great players after he'd left in the remainder of the Prem years. This guy is well and truly on that list.
  9. It's what happens when you have big unaccountable organisations with loads of money swilling around and little transparency. Folk like them two think they can act with impunity.
  10. The whole thing is a farce. A World Cup in November for Christ's sake! Blatter has admitted now that it was a mistake. What an absolute tool. Just now I don't know when England are playing and out of the make-up of each group I only know England's. Says it all.
  11. It's likely we're again going to be in the market for prospects whose contracts expire in Summer 2023. All fine as long as our scouting has picked out genuine talent and we strengthen in areas that need strengthening.
  12. It's a conversation that puts me in mind of Steve Thompson rather than McAteer. It was obvious from minute one how good McAteer was. With Thompson it took him a good three or four years to mature into the quality product he became. Some develop late or gradually. Thomason and Morley do still have some time.
  13. Horrible. I'd rather we bided our time than go up there and get tanked every time we play Blackburn and PNE. Burnley currently looking good for the Prem. There's obviously a fair chance that Wigan and Blackpool will be in League One. Early days though.
  14. Hillbillies 3 Dingles 0. A goal for every other finger. Was amused to see that one team had a Benson and the other had a Hedges.
  15. Can't abide Blackburn, don't care for Burnley. Always support Burnley in this fixture and always PNE when they play Blackpool.
