I'm a cockeyed optimist


Recommended Posts

We're gonna get trounced on Saturday....

 

And our defence is going to get exposed.

 

That is all.

 

We'll win. It's the type of game in which Latics have flourished in under Shez. Would rather be playing the top teams in the league every week than the dross.

 

If we can avoid scoring own goals (a la Stockport), we'll have them.

I wish I could see it that way, our record against the better teams in the division is good but Peterboro are a good attacking team, we've won playing badly recently but if our defence doesn't have its best game since we started playing crap then it's gonna be a long afternoon. This is probably the first match of the season I've thought "We're definitely going to lose".

Stockport are usually excellent at passing their way out of defence. Ferguson did his homework, closed them down and got 3 goals on the back of it.

 

No point doing his homework no Latics. Nobody knows what to expect from them!!!!

 

 

"They've got this pacey left winger who they don't give the ball to when they're up against 10 men and the full back is on a yellow card".

 

"Bald striker, convicted criminal like yourself boss, lots of movement up front but a midfield that don't like to play the ball in to his feet".

 

"Experience centre half, full of quality but no pace - hoof it over the top of him".

If he's learned anything from his dad, it'll be more like "Experienced centre half, gob full of stitches,heavy challenge in the air in the first 5 minutes wouldn't go amiss".

Not a big fan or 1 up top but I would take a point on Sat so might not be a bad suggestion

Nah, Joe Royle says:

 

 

-----------------Crossley-----------------

 

--------Stam------------------Rubes-----

 

------------------Allott--------------------

 

---Eardley--------------------------Jones

 

-Liddell-Lewis-Hughes-O'Grady-Taylor-

 

 

Edit: Quick, 12 players

I'd completely agree with that. But Sheridan is Joshing over Lomax at the moment, so Eardley won't get a sniff

Ah, the old 12-man team ruse! That Royle fella knew all the tricks.

More of an Aldrigde tactic to have 12 men on the pitch isn't it? Obviously the cider is still in your system

r u on drugs, negative bloody attitudes from every other fan, wish people would start looking at the glass half full, but i suppose thats too much to ask

 

 

Just look at your video Bring Back Pukka that's all I have to say, Taylor 1-0

 

Oh & Eardley is being sold in Jan hence why he isn't playing.

roam i wondered that myself mate,eardley not playing even the odd game strikes me as hes off,i like the lad but if it means no one else goes an lomax keeps improving i,d be reasonably alright with it

 

 

Seems nailed on to me.

 

Full international too so hopefully get some decent pennies even if he is Welsh
