Actually the new Bolton is go one up, miss 27 chances then defend for last 25 minutes potentially with 10 men and pretty certain with a non goal keeper in nets after Gilks injures himself knee sliding

Talk about a week being a long time in football.  With 10 minutes to go at Mansfield they were 2 pts above us with a game in hand, top of the form table and looking at play offs.  A week later we're 1

Still have every faith. Not even arsed we lost today. Had to lose somewhere and now is the right time to do it. I think Maddison needs a couple of starts.

We're probably thin on substitute central defenders but okay in midfield and attack. At least we had a goalie on the bench today.

Still have nightmares about Tranmere at Wembley.

Need a couple of 3 or 4 nillers

Trampmere's next 2 games could see them drop like a stone!

Pretty please, with a big fookin' cherry 🍒  on top!

This squad from day 1 - pissed it

I'm actually enjoying that we've given them all a half season start. 

It's a bit like the piss- taking at school where you hop about telling folk you'd win this playing on one leg.

I’ve just had a quick flick through each of the top teams fixtures and I have Cambridge 82, Cheltenham 80, Tranmere 79, FGR 79, Morecambe 79.

That would mean 80 (5 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses) gets us promoted

83 wins the league (6 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss)

We’re gonna win the league!

The Exeter fans I work with quite correctly said, well you should with a budget 2-3 times bigger than pretty much  everyone else in the league. Felt a bit Roger the Red for a few minutes. 

With what our respective clubs put us through through administration enjoy every last minute

I think, I'd like them to win both, or draw both 

Probably best they don't lose anyway

Have we actually though? I assume we have, and we should do really when you compare the size of the fan base and other income streams, but I’ve never seen anything that shows our player budget is 2-3 times the rest of the league.

Also, I reckon Salford will probably have the highest playing budget and it’s not doing them any favours.

I’m not saying that we shouldn’t be at the top of this league, and I’ve no doubt that we have many advantages over other smaller teams, but I’ve also never seen anything that says Bolton’s average player salary is £3k per week and the rest of the league is £1k per week for example.

Increasing Sarce and Doyle's wages should be enough of a clue

We signed those 2 though and then a load of conference/ league 2 players. We were under the salary cap and weren't at the limit either. 

Say we were actually paying slightly over the 1.5m when accounting for registering sarce and Doyle pre cap. I doubt most teams are paying £500k a year.

Evatt said, consistently, that we were well inside the salary cap.

There were a lot of other managers moaning that we outpaid others when signing Doyle & Sarce ... though we signed them before the cap was introduced & so the the rules had them counted at average rates. We then brought in a large number on a pittance in footballer terms.

The cap was still in place when we got the quality in, in January, when Evatt was saying we still had scope, but John, Lee & Maddison must have been a stretch.

However, at the risk of going all Man Yoo & Liverpool on people ... f'kem. We got precious little support as we slid & say the Peterborough's & Doncaster piss all over us. I look forward to hauling them in over the coming few years.
