We’ve been brilliant defensively Cambridge, can’t dispute that but I’m not sure I completely agree on all the passing. Our final pass into the box is regularly blocked by defenders, or doesn’t find a man. Sometimes we just seem that second too slow to hit it in and it happened regularly again today. To be fair, I thought a few looked tired today and despite the result you can’t deny the effort they put in. Never mind, move on to Tuesday now and maybe give one or two like Lee, Dapo and Doyle a rest from the starting eleven.

Generally our passing and ball retention isn't a problem,  our final ball is lacking at times but today we created some more gilt edged chances and if we got one I think we see a different game as the nerves would get to them.

 

But we didn't, overall we were shit and didn't really deserve anything. But it is still in our hands and we need to regroup and get ready for Tuesday, I hope we get Sarce back before the end of season, we are missing him badly

Today's game was reminiscent of early season when Santons & Baptiste couldn't cope with two big physical strikers, but Gilks performed better than Crellin to keep the score down. We don't sco

1 defeat in 9 scrapping to stay in the football league can’t see it being easy would bite your hand off for another scrappy 1-0 .

Let’s be honest we’ve been lacklustre for weeks big test of the management & team tuesday

I kind of have to agree, especially with the ball . Our passing was poor second half against Salford. 

We need to refocus and go again.

As opposed to getting over the line at the pace of Usain Bolt we will rather stumble over it akin to going home after 20 pints

I don’t care how we get home as long as we do jmjhb.

Well played to Grimsby they thoroughly deserved it , I don't know if we suffered some fatigue from Tuesday or just arrogance because they are bottom but no one can have any complaints from the outcome .

We go again on Tuesday and hopefully a kick up the arse for them , perhaps a change or 2 to freshen it up .

I hope Grimsby rough up Morecambe like they did us today. A draw or worse for Morecambe at Blundell Park would be just what the doc ordered. 

Hard not to feel dispirited after that showing today but we are in the same position as last Saturday night when we were all skipping. 

I know we are capable of going to Morecambe and getting a result too. 

This is not the Prem. Bottom can and does beat top and there is less predictability. 

Its going to be a rollercoaster three weeks now. And who knows how much those two late Oldham goals and Miller's for us might end up counting in the final reckoning.

It’s the Bolton way apart from the Colin Todd season promotion

Would start with the same line up Tuesday TBH. Only Delf and Arthur can change a game. If Sarc is fit maybe give him a run from the bench

I agree to an extent mate , but rather than worrying about changing games let's concentrate on taking the game to the opposition.  To be fair we are missing far too many easy chances though.

Arrogant attitude, poor performance.

Embarrassing result against the bottom team in the entire football league.

A day like this was always going to happen, us lose and others win.

We go again on Tuesday. We need 4 points from the next 2 games.

We take just one of them first half bad misses and it would be a different outcome; same as Newport. Declan John was shocking today but Baptiste and Santos also had poor games. Think Lee is wasted in that number 10 position and would be better along with Williams and let Thomason play further forward. Doyle was awful today with his poor finishing but still worked hard. Like lots have said it’s still in our own hands so move onto Tuesday

Problem is Paul, no matter how much Grimsby try to rough them up, Morecambe won’t miss the chances like we did today.

If sarc isn’t fit would like to see half a lion given a chance running at teams from a more central position . we played him when he first came to the club . Being two footed he is difficult to stop draws a lot of free kicks when playing more central

Think losing that early goal was pivotal! Chasing the game from the off. Poor all round today. John was terrible, Santos never got to grips with Hanson, and, again woeful finishing. What i cant get my head around is how up for it we should have been, with Cheltenham losing last night and an incentive to go top! But fair play to Grimsby, they had chances as well, and didnt look a bottom of the league side. Its now a must win on Tuesday, and a must not lose on Saturday.

Got what we deserved today. Won't pick out individuals for criticism, will just say well played Matt Gilks & George Thomason you were outstanding. A young lad trying to carry a team with so much experience. 

     Oh what we'd give for SJM to be upfront now. He'd be on course for 40 goals nevermind 20 with the chances we've been creating.

Perhaps so but they've hardly been 100 per cent with their results these past few weeks. Their 1-1 draw at home against Southend and 1-0 defeat at Port Vale for instance. Heat is on for them now too. They've burned off two fixtures against mid-table fodder now. At this stage of the season they are always the gimme games.

It was our kick off, and we conceded after 30 seconds 🤔

Thank fuck we had a cushion of 4 points, a lot of players having off days, Doyle has gone to pot and his hold up play compared to Hansons was shocking. We may have missed a couple of sitters at vital times, but overall they battered us, Evatts substitutions where woeful, we lost all shape, it just needed Arthur or Delfonso on for Izgrove and Miller for Doyle, kept our shape and we may have robbed a point.

Completely agree RP, Doyle has 17 but really should have had many more at this level with the service he’s had. 3 chances today, 5 at Newport and another 2 against Colchester spurned. It’s ok saying he works hard, that should be a given but it’s no excuse for not scoring. I think he’s lacking confidence and I’d give a Miller a chance instead on Tuesday. It happens, it’s no criticism, he’s just not on it at the moment.
