Looks like that comeback against Barrow has really galvanised the team. Only two negatives from today, Baptiste and Crellin. Don't need to dwell on those as they're plain as day. There are m

I thought Crawford and Delaney were fine tbh. Game of opinions though. 

Delaney - you must be taking the piss because he was very good

If players buckle so easily due to being told to 'man up' then they aren't mentally tough enough to take us where we want to go. It's not a 9-5 job, it's a job in which having a strong & winning mentality is vital. If Crellin reacts positively then it's job done, if not he isn't the goalkeeper we need. 

It's a case of PC gone mad. Did BC go home in tears, or storm out without having a shower ? Probably not. 

He might have shrugged his shoulders and said 'fuck me he's right, I deserved that'.

People rushing to stick up for him. He doesn't need that. Maybe IE has lit the blue touch paper for a great season for young Bill.

the last 170 minutes have removed nearly all the pressure that may have been building on him, imo

I'd say the last 95 minutes have relieved pressure.  The first 90 minutes at Barrow have to be in the negative column, if the ref blows his whistle after 4.5 minutes of injury time instead of 5 that result goes down as one of the worst in our history.  A good performance at Cambridge by all accounts - very pleasing and 2 great goals, lets build on it - unlike performances after the only other acceptable game so far, Harrogate.  Bradford is huge for Evatt.

Disagree on barrow

We were even the dominant team in the first 25 minutes

Anyway, i doubt hes under any pressure anyway 

Spot on. And if the ref blows his whistle on 94 mins in the Oldham game we’d be on a 5 game unbeaten run, pressure off, just as it should be 😊

I have been managing construction sites for almost 40 years.

My mantra to the foremen coming up behind me  (based on a couple of smacks in the gob in my early days) is that you must never rob anybody of their dignity.

This week I have had a big run in with a joinery contractor but although he might suspect this, my site foreman knows nothing of the nitty gritty and he never will... it was between the contractor and me and we have sorted it out and we are both happy to work together again.

No one needs to know exactly what has gone down behind closed doors. We can both still stand proud.

Honeymoon period is over perhaps the size of the job is kicking in with IE now

i certainly don’t think having crowds would’ve made any difference so on that respect he’s got it good atm 

I think it wouldve changed a few things away from home. Packed away end, all backing the team. Would've deffo given us the impetus.

At home a totally different kettle of fish. 

Wed be on Baptiste getting booed on every touch and ironic cheers for crellin catching a ball by now.

Ian Evatt has decided to keep playing a young inexperienced goalie who is not even our player !. If he has a problem with him,it’s his fault . Where does Alexandra figure in all this? From what I can remember of him he would be just as good if not better than Crellin and he’s our player . Where is Alexandra getting his game time from ?

I just mean that the game/result wasnt a positive for Evatt overall, I can't see any game where we've conceded 3 terrible goals in half an hour as being a positive, unless we storm back to win with a great last hour.  Fans on here were very critical of the 2nd half efforts to equalise but the rescued point at the death prevented the game being a negative.  At Cambridge we were the better team so even though it was only a draw, definitely a tick in the positive column.  But I agree he's not really under big pressure, other than normal pressure for a manager in the bottom end of a division.  Like any of them he needs to put 2 or 3 good performances together and at the moment step one has been achieved (in my opinion).

The guy has played one league game for us, one great match in our history but an absolute freak of a game we would have lost 99 other times out of 100. And hes 2 years younger than Crellin. So if we chuck him in and he fucks up, what then?

Can see Fleetwood calling him back the way this is going 

I'm hoping that as far as the club and most importantly Crellin is concerned, it's done with now following Evatts explanation today and we move on. 

Unless he clotheslines Bradford's first cross on Tuesday into the top corner then I'll probably hear the screaming from here.

As far as the talk on Crellin goes, that should be it now, done, dusted, move on. Good post

That's a very valid point indeed haha

 

Always think of that 0-0 at preston when every man and his dog went under freedman. Place wouldve erupted if we scored. Instead we were kicking balls out for throw ins as we had nobody forward :(

Was that the Saturday night game, first time we'd played Preston away for donkeys years? Some proper states there.

Long day that, think it was Halloween IIRC. Finished up with DG dancing around a pub in Adlington in his pink polo shirt after about 15 hours drinking 😀

That's the one. When Blackpool were coming back through at the same time as we were leaving. Sure we drew 0-0 away with them the next time too and again it was full of completely battered lads.

Just checked it was a Friday night. Friday and Saturday night fixtures at Preston who's bright idea was that 🤣

If I was Barton, I personally would keep things as they are. He’s here to learn; getting some harsh treatment at this age might work, depending on how he reacts.

I’d agree for the most part. I was also thinking that you’d have had outraged fans on the pitch at 2-0 against Barrow.
