Snails pace....

Going to take a punt that you are under 30. My kids expect everything immediately, life just isn’t like that. This time two years ago we were flirting with the national league. If 40 places progress is snails pace then you are deluded.

Yes royal did just happy to have a club that’s what I was replying to originally people need to read back 

No he didn't. He said the people who have these extreme reactions when we lose a game need to get some perspective. And he's correct. I think he was being tongue-in-cheek anyway.

Seriously, your punt is way out - my first BWFC game was in 76 and I've followed BWFC home & away ever since, I'm as loyal as the next man, I just don't follow this admiration of all things Evatt but do carry on....

Fans need to chill I ain’t happy with the result and felt IE picked wrong team and slow making changes buts he’s best manager we’ve had for a long time, we’re building steadily and Rome weren’t built in a day. 

Absolutely.

I disagree with @Black Sheep and @radcliffe white

Yes, today was poor, not good enough 

But while there’s things not right at the moment, he’s aware of this, he’s not in cloud cuckoo land, he’s come out after the game and admitted it’s not been good enough this month. 

He’s changed personnel, tactics, used early subs, rotated (probably too much) the squad, in a attempt to find solutions. 

But we’re still 6th. He’s turned around our fortunes before, his position at the club is not and should not be questioned.

Interesting and strange few months ahead.

Forget Dapo at WB, he’ll never be a wingback as long as he’s got a hole in his arse, get him playing further up the pitch were he’s at his best.

Katchunga needs benching because he brings fuck all to the table, i’d play Sadlier instead.

We need to play the game on the front foot instead of sideways/backward passes.

I still a believe in IE, but deary me he’s one stubborn fucker.

Some cringeworthy language from one old cunt in North Lower, aimed at that female Assistant Referee from the first minute. "Fuck off you fat slag!" "You fucking slut!" "You stupid ginger bitch!". Embarrassing. I hope she raises it with the powers that be. Doubt he'd have screamed any of that if he was sat next to Sharon Brittan. Really disappointing after an impeccably observed Remembrance Service. Suspect someone mentioned it to a Steward at half-time, because he was either gone, moved or told to shut up during the second half.

I expected a change at HT but not that. He's got to bring Morley on for MJ if Dapo for Iredale is a straight swap. Fucking mad change without. What could he possibly have asked of Dapo?

Can't stand stuff like that. Good on whoever brought it up to get him fucked off. Dinosaur.

I'm glad there's no league game for a fortnight now. It's a natural pause in the season to reflect. 

In the long term we are 6th and there's still 30 games of the season to go. We've a transfer window in a couple of months and the trajectory of the club is still an upward curve.
In the short term, October has been a poor month with a sequence of winnable games that we've made a right meal of. It feels like the division has sussed out our 5-3-2 formation and we ourselves have been staid and stifled. IE needs to change the system to better release our attacking artillery and better impose ourselves on games. Today's team selection was stubbornness in the face of the obvious. 

We knew in the Summer that there was a queue of big clubs in this league. We're not at the top of that queue yet. We need to be patient but we also need signs of short-term remedial action to keep us in the top six fight.

Spot on post this 👍

Found today really frustrating after the buzz of those post-match scenes on Tuesday. And found Evatt's line up baffling to be honest. But if we have a second half of the season like we have under Evatt the last two years then we're in for a good push for promotion.

Just stop it @paulhanleywith your reasoned assessments 

I’m off to the politics thread for a more realistic look at life

Disappointing, when we scored I thought we were on for another comeback, but their 3rd goal was a killer. The referee was hopeless but can't complain much about the result.......Oxford were organised, hard working & big, & keep lumping balls onto the heads of their giant centre halfs was gormless but should keep our "geddit forward", "geddit in the box" types happy.

Sheehan was lightweight & hardly in the game while Dapo did his running down blind alleys thing.....Sadlier probably deserves a starting place before those two now.

It's a difficult spell but i have confidence in IE to get it right. Evatt IN.

So what - we are shit at the moment

It was a response to someone who said we weren't making any progress. 6th is better than 13th. Today was shit. But we'll play worse and win games. And we'll play well and still lose. That's just where we are.

Nobody is saying "I don't care if we lose every game as long as BWFC exists". But expecting us to win every game, and chucking the toys out of the pram when we don't is just as daft.

Bit like chucking in 'look where we last season'

It's daft
