  1. I whole heartedly agree with a protest. I’m fed up of my club being run like a circus. However, for a protest to be impactful, it requires for everyone to be on the same page. With such short notice I think we should all get behind the Trust’s proposed plan for this Saturday. I completely get people not wanting to line the owners pockets and perhaps a full on boycott can be the next stage of action. However for this Saturday, we need everyone to be doing the same thing or it just won’t work. 10 people throwing a scarf onto the pitch will look rubbish. 1000 doing it will send a message.
  2. Yep, Gardner got completely undue stick at times. Whilst he’s no world beater and he does have a habit of making over-complicating things, he’s a decent enough player at this level and as has been noted earlier on, he was often left doing the job of two. I think he can be a decent asset at this level and would be interested to see him under Scholes. That said, I wouldn’t be rushing to give him a long term deal especially if he was wanting out before he got injured.
  3. I think the lack of activity on this thread shows that people have generally accepted that this season is over in terms of play offs. Hoping we just finish strongly and that Scholes has the chance to fully assess the squad before having a pre-season to make the squad his own.
  4. Exactly that Bristol. I think a lot of people dismiss him out of hand because he used to dance around with his top off like a bit of a tool. I never had an issue with it but some seemed to take offence. Actually when you speak to him he’s a nice lad with a bit about him but he’s really got to grow up with regards to coming onto the pitch and making a show of himself. His commitment is second to none and it’s a real shame for him if he’s blown it by being an idiot.
  5. Whilst I know it’s not a fair representation, their lot in Twitter are pretty painful.
  6. Spot on Ryan. Our summer transfer window was a joke and we’re left with only a couple of players who can actually play football. To be where we are in the table is more an indictment of the quality of the rest of this league than it is of ourselves. As the saying goes, you can’t polish a turd. We need investment in the pitch over summer and in the playing budget. I’m willing to give AL the benefit of the doubt that he needed a year to get the club on an even keel after being run into the ground for years previously hence why the playing budget was slashed but we’ve not got a hope in hell if we don’t start signing some actual footballers. To be questioning Scholes at this stage is daft. Hopefully he can spend the rest of the season working out who is and who isn’t good enough (it won’t be hard), and begin to overhaul the squad in summer ready for next year.
  7. I think he means that if we win all our games before Bury we’ll have actually won four on the bounce, not three therefore it can’t happen unless we have a game postponed. However technically if we’ve won four on the bounce, we’ve also won three on the bounce...
  8. Or D) he played very well second half last week so deserves to keep his place. Overall I’ve not been impressed with him but he’d be difficult to drop after last week. I do wonder if he’d be best off the bench running at tired legs though.
  9. Completely agree. Despite being pony for most of the season we’re still in with a shout. That win at the weekend was massive. As has been noted, we have 3 really winnable home games coming up which we really should be looking at 9 points from. Take that form into the Bury game and you never know. Awaits 0-1 tomorrow...
  10. Chris Taylor gets a lot of undue stick from Latics fans. I know nothing of his attitude second time round but I do know that in his first stint, he was a consistent performer over a number of years who could have made a move to the championship sooner than he did. Without looking at the stats I’d suggest that no other player has come close to his total appearances for the club in modern times. A legend, no but definitely deserves more recognition than he gets.
  11. He absolutely is as far as players in the modern era go. He’s led the team brilliantly since he’s been here and the way he conducts himself on and off the pitch is a credit. He’s a proper footballer and it’s glaringly obvious he’s played at a higher level despite his age. Must be fantastic got George to be lining up next to and learning from Clarke each week.
  12. A really disappointing way to bow out of the cup. We were second best all over the park in the first half and if it wasn’t for the heroics of Clarke and Iversen, the game would have been over by HT. Second half we came out and had a go at them. I’ve not seen a replay of the penalty so don’t know whether it hit a hand or not. What I will ask is how can a lino give that from where he is and why did both officials give a corner before Doncaster players started protesting? It’s no coincidence that this is the same referee as at Rochdale last year in my opinion. In terms of performances, Clarke was superb and my mom. Iversen matched everything thrown at him. Lang was our biggest threat followed by Nepo (what is he doing at left back?). Thought Hamer did ok too. Edmundson’s distribution was shocking and must surely improve if he’s to move up the leagues. Sylla and Branger both poor for the most part. Considering the lack of quality in our squad, we battled well. However we need quality reinforcements before the window closes if we’re to have any chance at the play offs.
  13. Everyone that wanted one had ample opportunity to get one.
  14. Yep, he’s not wrong. City are the one team we may as well write off if we drew. Liverpool’s first team obviously would be the same but they’d rest players and their second string isn’t as strong. Judging by the way Spurs dismantled Tranmere, they’d be another to avoid. Chelsea, Arsenal or United would be great though.
