Doubt it. 18-20 I'd say. Perhaps a mental age of a small child who hasn't yet worked out there are consequences to their actions.. 

But perhaps that's just yoof these days across the board

It is! We will just move on again eh Cheese. 3 straight defeats, 8 goals conceded, none scored, everything fine then!

What do you suggest? We're on a poor run, and have been hit by injuries/suspensions at the worst possible time, playing sides that are in good form. Throwing your toys out of the pram isn't going to change anything.

I'm a little concerned about her mental wellbeing and there could be a safeguarding issue here. She's clearly being encouraged/egged on by others and she seems that desperate for any attention, good or bad, that she's making an absolute dick of herself.

Her behaviour is poor, but those standing around and geeing her on are worse.

I think i suggest we have bigger problems than you care to realise! 6 defeats in the last 10 without scoring a goal suggests to me this could end up a relegation fight if we are not careful. I dont get paid to suggest anything, thats Evatts job, my only suggestion would be to go more defensive away, especially against the better  teams. I would play both Williams and Thomason in front of the back four. We need to stop shipping goals as a starting point, and push on from there.

I agree. Something not quite right. I honestly feel like i should find her and talk to her.

I think there’s truth in what both you and Cheese say Wooli but we have to be careful we don’t overstate the situation. Our goal rate is poor but it’s not because we haven’t created chances so something must be working. As for defence, yes we’ve conceded early but even yesterday with the chances we had second half, we could have pulled that back. I think we’re just lacking in personnel. I worry about Doyle at this level, Kachunga isn’t a goal scorer and Dapo just needs to stop complaining and concentrate on doing what he’s good at. Other than up top where it’s now abundantly clear we need to invest in January, I’m happy our current squad is good enough to at least finish top ten.

The few times I've come across her this season, she's been loud and leery but no better or worse than the group she's with.  As you say, many who should know better.  I was stood close to a few last night who seem to equate supporting their team with just shouting abuse at opposition players and opposition fans.

Indeed and soon

Some may not tolerate her behaviour for much longer she was banging into folk knocking drinks over etc 

Is she drinking? Worries me that she could be easily led and took advantage of in all honesty.

Encountered her for the first time outside the hotel after Crawley. Soon as the players came out she vaulted the fence and started ballooning about with them. Security put her back on the ‘right’ side of the fence to which she climbed on top of and kept pestering players for a shirt

Then again against Cols in pre-season. Stood behind their keeper giving him shit at every goal kick, particularly first half. 

She’s quickly formed a reputation but some of the abuse she’s getting on Twitter is bordering on bullying. Not sure if she’s one of these that thrive off attention though.

👍exactly. We’re all impatient but sometimes you just have to take the pain. I’m confident we will come back fighting with this manager and core of good players. The top sides in this league have built squads over 2/3 years and we need another few windows to get there.

We are a work in progress. It’s going to take time to crack this division, look at how Sunderland and Ipswich are only now starting to get to grips with it after three seasons.

Spot on. Should be left well alone by all.

On the other hand Wigan were in administration in March and battling to avoid relegation to Div 4.

In one transfer window their new owner has signed up enough quality for them to be serious promotion candidates

Thought you was going

I did go, and I was sat next to Shannon all the way down and back!!!

She wasn’t drinking at all in either direction. 

I am more concerned about Bolton Wanderers to be honest. 

Got back home at 4-55AM.

😂😂

They are on a different level to us regarding wages and investment.

She is 17, lives in Breightmet and is at college. 

She is very immature, craves attention and name drops constantly. 

She isn’t a bad kid, but is egged on by younger Bolton lads. 

I had a word with her numerous times on the journey and told her that she is getting a name for herself and is she’s not careful she will be getting a ban.
