bar the chance he should have scored, charles was missing for large chunks tonight

Could that first chance have been more Identical than the one he missed on Saturday?

We absolutely do, Aimson got a touch of the Beevers instead of just giving an easy ball inside to the midfield bods, but overall he wasn't the problem, although I agree with you, it was frustrating, he must have had the ball at his feet more times than any other player on the pitch in the 2nd half.

They were very happy to let him have it.

2 points dropped, probably done for this season.

That was a hard watch. We should have been three up, then they score courtesy of us, and we strolled about aimlessly as if we'd all the time in the world.

We need to be seeing shithouse sides like this off within the first half hour.

Dion takes one of them chances early we batter them 4-0 probably. Same at Gills were we wasted early chances but luckily it didn't bite us in the arse. Football doesn't work that you'll score every chance but some of these misses are legit guilt edged clear cut chances which have looked harder to miss then score. Adams knew he had to take the sting out the game with his little bullshit childlike tantrums which the officials don't really punish bar a yellow for obvious time wasting to keep stopping the game (I know Evatt won't be punked but it didn't help getting involved he bit on the bait & it translated to the players). Johnston who had a mare sloppily gives them something at such a crucial time so they can go in HT with their tails up with something to cling onto which makes it so much more difficult to break down. Second half we was so easy to play against, mistakes crept in & we ran out of ideas very quickly which was very frustrating. Needed our better players like Dapo & Dion to try create but besides from some safety first passes just didn't get involved second half. Think Fossey was the only one who wanted to run at players & be direct so credit to him for trying to commit defenders. Back three were a nightmare at large periods when pressured & the thing is that Morecambe must have only pressed them three times in the whole 90. Big difference when Geth's in there to calm everybody else down & help guide the others through the game with his football brain. Santos made some incredible defensive actions but then decides he wants to start skinning strikers in his own box which really gets everybody nervy whilst taking a striker out for a clear pen. Sadlier tried to create, Xav got an assist & JDB scored so the bench did well yet again even if was a bit late. They deserved to bottle it for a complete anti football performance so yeah...

What a tinpot shower Morecambe are, from Adams to their players, from their fans to their shithouse physio. Hopefully that equaliser will help send them down. 

Their gameplan, after we'd been threatening a cricket score for the first 25, was pure shithousing and it (almost) worked. I hope Evatt gets his players smarter to this next season; without meaning to sound like a delusional Mackem, we really are a big day out for so many players/clubs in this division.

I still can't believe Santos didn't concede a penalty with that ridiculous challenge. Ref evening up the scores after their 22(?) was lucky to stay on the pitch? 

Oh, and while it wasn't *exactly* the scenario I'd played out in my head countless times as a kid, standing on the BWFC pitch to rapturous applause before kickoff was... emotional. Thank you.

We played some lovely football, especially 1st half, with Santos MoTM, (despite one slightly rash challenge ) but can't complain when we missed so many clear cut chances.

The consolation is  that we took 2 points off Morecambe, I don't mind Accy or Fleetwood but these are horrible pricks,cheating players, shit stirring bench & their fans are dicks.......I hope they go down.

Dapo looked great as one of the front two alongside Dion running in behind & drifting to the left like he likes to do especially against Sunderland. In the 10 role in this shape he's basically dropping to the deepest midfielder to pick the ball up & recycle possesion which just seems a waste of what makes him dangerous. He doesn't look nowhere near as sharp recently & seems to have lost a lot of confidence in his ability to make things happen as he was doing before. Can't play up top with Dion though because of JDB & Baka's impact they've been having so Dapo's having to adapt his game all of a sudden. We've been at our best when Lee is in the 10 he just provides a much better balance, Dempsey I can see being the ball carrier driving from deep alongside Morley deep lying. Aimson is a good defender & was top notch in the centre when Rico was missing but when he's seeing all the ball in the wide areas it's just not his obviously not his game.

Our wasteful finishing gave them something to hold on to and tbf, unpleasant though it was, i thought they did it well

Stocktons a proper handful, 11? Shithouse but fast as fuck

They give it everything

Absolute shithouses but what else have they got

Badly missed Gethin.

A hugely frustrating evening but I’m delighted they didn’t win.

Stonewall pen but fuck them. Payback for the nonsense Santos red card and penalty at their place. 

In a way, we’ve had a taste of how Arsenal felt about us when we regularly took points off them 15-20 years ago.

No issue with their tactics. Grim but that was the only way they’d get owt. That performance was a let down tonight. Over a balanced season it’s a performance you can live with but in this feast or famine game we partake in it’s a bit shit

In one.

When you have nothing, then give it everything.

They did and were unlucky not to win IMO.

The ref gave us everything, them nothing and in the END we were lucky to get a point.

We did nothing in the second half.

Games are rarely won in the first half.

You definitely know you’re being shithoused when even the physio is at it. Added to all their players staying  on the deck for a while after every tackle, their keeper taking a minute for each goal kick… Only 4 minutes added time though! 

When Santos brought their player down, ref looked straight at the prick with the flag along WSL for a decision. As said linesman hadn’t actually seen anything of the game worth waving a flag for, I think he just shrugged his shoulders and ask, “What?” As bad as all these refs are, they’re made to look worse by having very unhelpful assistants.

In the grand scheme of things us going up this season would be the worst thing to happen 

this team is new young and developing. The way we knock the ball around for periods at this level is pretty standard in the champ. The gulf is massive. Some very talented teams and players up there who quite frankly would tear our current side to pieces. 
 

this year was always about consolidation for us. We’ll be up in and around the play offs next year. If we go up then or even the season after I will take quite happily. Allows us to build a better side slowly than having to rip it all up and start again just to suddenly compete in the champ

Well that was a game that could and should have been won in the 1st half, if 2 of our 4 first half chances had gone in, they’d have folded for fun.

Morecambes heads were down while it was still 0-0 after 30 mins, they couldn’t live with us, it’s like they were just waiting for the goals to go in & when the goals never materialised they grew into the game.

A freak of a match best forgotten.

Yes.

Niggly shite like that must tell Evatt he's doing something right. 

Even when we were way, way below par.

He left a bag and a towel in separate places. Both thrown off by Bolton players.

Their physio came on in the first half for that prick with the popadom ankle and didn’t even bring a bag with him.

Santos did very well for our equaliser.

You’d  have though that prick had broke his tib/fib and spine after that tackle, banging the floor like his career had just been ended, 5 minutes later he was running around like nothing had happened.

Read on Twitter that their cunty physio was none other than Simon Twatting Farnworth?!

Anyway, we went from looking like Brazil in the first 30 mins to the dog & duck.

Whats most concerning is the mental thing - reduced to forcing it and not trusting the process. That diag we kept trying was doing my head in. They scored and we lost our heads.

Adams is a shit cunt but they did what he likes - pressed us well and fucked our rhythm up. Especially when Johnston & Aimson got it. We went very predictable and lacking in tempo. Dapo especially guilty of slowing it down and no r moving it quickly enough 

Officials as dire as every week - a stonewall pen denied for each team.

We’re not far off but we still aren’t quite there yet. I still fancy us to sort it and go up next season mind
