How’s that then? Go on, fucking enlighten me.

In fairness, you lost me at "I pay my money".......

It is without doubt the most common phrase from absolute gobshites.

Anyway, horrid day. Was shite from minute one when Paris got clattered and we didn't realise what was coming. 

Gutted 

This, brannagan was flying into challenges and the ref should've reigned that in straight away but i think it took 3 of them before he said anything, not that it would've made much difference to the end result though.  Still can't get my head around the performance though, did the players just think they'd win easily?

My fear is that I think they did.

Every time the back 3 had the ball, Sheehan, magoma and Thomason went and stood behind one of their players and didn't move.

Long balls, crosses and corners were all over hit.

Collins and Charles barely had a touch.

Dempsey showed a bit more fight when he was on but was too little too late.

I am on the Chiltern Line surrounded by fuckers in their shiny new shirts.

Very poor performance.

As far as I am concerned.

Evatt can go.

Santos can go.

Evatt was out thought and couldn't change it.

In a few more words @tomski will be as devastated as me at being proven right, in a dignified way, about Evatt getting it wrong in some big games.

And you can’t deny that’s another one.

It felt like Watford all over again. And at the minute I’m as angry and disappointed with Evatt and the players as I was with Todd and the 99 bunch 25 years ago 

A better manager than Todd got the leftovers from that squad promoted 2 years later of course.That's what Bolton need now.A better manager.

Exactly and I agree with Mounts this as happened too many times this season our players also are weak as piss !

Anyone with half a brain could see it wasn’t working.

2-0 down at half time in a one off game, you’ve got nothing to lose, you either:

- stubbornly stick to the way you always play, the way the opposition knew you were going to play and the way that they have absolutely completely nullified and will continue to do so until the final whistle, or

- you accept that your usual way isn’t working, you do something that they won’t be expecting, you go to a back 4 and put Jerome up top in the middle of a 3 and go long to him and let Collins and Charles run off him (or something else that was just different).

He did the former, because he’s either too stubborn or tactically inept.

I’ve been his biggest fan but this season has shown his weaknesses loud and clear, and more worryingly his inability to accept and address them. I wouldn’t be sad to see him go.

As for the players and that performance, probably better left til emotions have calmed down because at the moment I’d sell the lot of the bottleless twats - and our ‘captain’ is front of the queue.

No disrespect to the Oxford team because if they had needed too i am sure they would have upped their game. But as has been said they only needed a 5 out of 10 performance to beat us 2-0 and that is unforgivable and the fault of the manager.

I honestly don't know what to say after that.Not 1 player turned up absolutely embarrassing and I'm still 3 hours from home 

I can not see how IE can carry on

A Sunday league manager who'd watched Oxford v Posh would have known to make his pre-match team talk be just four words, 'start fast, score first'. We did the polar opposite and gifted Oxford the opportunity to do again what they did to Posh. I'd like to get an honest answer from Evatt as to whether the ponderous approach from kick off was his instructions (if so it's barely believable) or whether the players took no notice of him / froze when crossing the white line
