It will all end in tiers.

Bilbao - seemed steady, made one very good save, didn’t have chance with goal.  Not much else to do.  Ntambwe - another steady debut, looks like he enjoys defending which is refreshing. See ho

Many memories of Latics games v Bolton (mainly at home to be fair) but been watching Latics at Burnden since 1972, for latics fans of my age, these are our real enemies - always a right rough set of b

Somewhat reminiscent of Montano's goal at Stevenage, first game of the season, a 4-3 win, a while back.

Haha, what a goal that was... mind you Montano pretty much dribbled it to the touchline before clipping it in! 

 

One of the best opening day games since we stuffed City at Maine Road in the 80s 😁

Actually, to correct myself, it was our first away game v City in 88, was played on the Bank Holiday Monday after we had drawn at home to Barnsley on the Saturday

 

Still not sure how we got out of Moss Side in one piece after getting lost 😊

 

It all came together under JR second half of that season and we only lost 2 of our last 20 league games which set us up nicely for World domination for the next couple of seasons 

 

KTF our day will come again

Yep, where the the most overrated centre forward ever..

 

Steve Bull (MBE) - ‘most overrated centre forward ever’? I think that you’re talking a load of bollox there...

 

The guy rightly was, and still is, a legend. He played for Wolves from 1986 until his retirement from playing in 1999, and holds the club's goalscoring record with 306 goals, which included 18 hat-tricks for the club.

He was capped 13 times for the England team between 1989 and 1990, scoring four goals.

 

Most overrated? Nah...

Also picked by England whilst in division two. That is quite a feat even then, almost certainly wouldn't happen now.

Kalvin Phillips was picked before he'd played Premier league

That's the baby. Strange situation with the ground under development. Two sides of the ground out of use and the stand along the side almost a pitch width away from the touchline. Stunning performance from Marshy.

Ino yeah that's why I prefaced it with almost certainly bc he was a premier league player and probably wouldn't have made it into the squad if they had run out of steam again. But we can't know that for certain.

He's not been played wide this season has he ?

 

A front 3 with Rowe central McAleny and Dearnley wide and Bamboozler running at defences will cause defenders in this division nightmares, but can they all be fitted in the team together?

Hes a classic academy trained player. The difference being he may make it! He dropped down the leagues as a utd player, dropped further as an unemployed player! Willing to make the sacrifice to climb back up again. And has shown ability and slef belief!!@

 

Yet Callam Dolan about 10 years in the Man United Academy blew his chance and  is now at Matlock Town.

Good on Dearnley for showing dedicated work after a setback can pay off.

In a different scenario Rick Holden turned down a professional contract at Burnley to study at College, then fought his way from Halifax up the leagues.

I stand corrected.

You sort of answer your question by naming 4 players for a front 3.

 

With lots of Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday games this season, squad depth will be key. Can see Dearnley starting tomorrow, with Moyo dropping to the bench.
