    Bolton Wanderers v Bristol City Match Day 2

    Honestly don't understand people bashing this side halfway through the second game! Especially when our defence consisted of two new signings and a talented but inexperienced Kelly, Eliasson who's only just made the squad/first 11 this season along with newboys maenpaa and Weimann. That's essentially half a new team starting, it's going to take a good 10 or so games before this team clicks, honestly shocked that some are surprised we're dodgy in some areas at the moment. This team will get better as the season goes on, the signs are there but it's going to take a few games for it to all gel together just don't be surprised if we have a slow start!
  2. January was a sinking transfer window, this one not so much. Jury is out on if the first 11 have been improved or not however the squad as a whole is stronger which is what let us down last season. I feel more confident this season purely because we have decent cover in most areas of the pitch, I'd much rather have a steady season this time rather than the huge highs and massive lows we had the last two seasons! Our problem is we've got the funds for transfers but not the wages to bring in like for like name players at the moment. We've got the money that we don't have to shop in poundland but can't yet afford to shop at Waitrose or M&S., if that makes sense. Lets see how we go for the next few games before passing judgement! Personally feel we've done ok. Maybe people feel we've not recruited well because we've not made a marquee signing to get excited about?

    Excellent ball in by Eliasson there for the goal.

    Adam Webster - Now signed

    Happy with this, two solid signings now, on paper. Gives me hope for the rest of the window.

    England v Belgium what would you do?

    Mind you we've only beaten Sweden twice in our last 15 attempts in 90 mins (2W 8D 5L). In fact we have a slightly better record against Brazil over the same period! (3W 7D 5L) . Always thought our record against them was a bit shit, forever a pain in the backside to play against, didn't realise it was just that shit though.

    The Right Profile

    No problem with foreign players as long as they're the likes of kodjia and diedhiou. Obvious talent and experienced but with a price tag while still being cheaper (much better value too) than equavilant English players. Less 'punts' and 'ones for the future' and more like this please! Otherwise we should stick to English leagues for those brought in for a few years time.

    Christ, it's going to be Tunisia all over again isn't it? As in trying to turn it into a rugby match.

    I agree with you, we're got our own deficiencies at the back to think about. Flaws was perhaps too strong a word though.

    2018 World Cup

    Agreed, the one thing that gives me hope is alot of nations seem to have flaws at the back this time round. Lots of attacking talent on show but been some dodgy defending even from the better teams. Did notice Belgium seemed a little wobbly after Tunisia brought it back to 2-1. We'll certainly ask alot more questions of their defense than Tunisia and Panama have.

    2018 World Cup

    Belgium have been very good but is it me or are Tunisia more open at the back then they were against us? Though just could be their quality cutting Tunisia open better than we did. Either way looks like its going to be a very tough game against them.

    Tunisia v England Match Thread (Merged)

    Disappointed with Tunisia, didn't really attempt to try and win the game. A few of their players had some Technical ability but once they got their goal they just sat back for the remainder of the match. England certainly weren't as good in the second half but you would have to attribute some of that to Tunisia sitting a bit deeper in the second have and not really committing men forward, was always going to turn it into a bit of a grind and a dour second half. Certainly had less space to work in after half time. Glad we got a winner though to triumph over Tunisia's dirty tactics, could be forgiven for thinking you were watching a rugby match when ever we had a corner.

    3rd favourites

    Well we're only 8/1 to be relegated via Skybet. Probably worth waiting for the rest of the teams to be added.
