Maybe we've been compensating for a lack of quality at the back by playing five there. It was working because we conceded so few but it was at the expense of our attacking play. Perversely - considering our comparative lack of goals this year - perhaps we need to sign better defenders in January. Anyway - another match goes by with no first half goal. Another game in which we fall behind and shove all our subs on in a scramble to get ourselves back in the game. Deja vu really. We need to keep developing and January will be interesting in terms of what route we go down. The problem IE and the board have is that Bolton fans are always going to be impatient with third tier football. Where we've come from and the brush with extinction tempers that... but it's still there and that sentiment will incrementally grow. Rightly so too - any third tier BWFC set up should be straining at the leash for Championship football. Phil Neal would recognise this exact mix of emotions and thoughts at Bolton Wanderers. Can’t disagree. Thought for a few weeks Jones and Santos have probably gone as far as they can with us. Too many goals seem to involve (or lack of) them. Jones I felt looked more comfortable at full back in the 2nd half. Trafford is starting to look a bit jittery behind the defence. I don’t think we have major problems. 1 good, solid, no nonsense centre half would sort it. Surely there must be a few knocking around Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
