    We. Have. Lost, unhappy with the team selection. It should have been - Lonergan, White, Wheater, Mills, Baptiste, Spearing, Trotter, Moritz, M.Davies, Eagles, Jutkiewicz.

    So Lonergan has to paid the price for the defeat at Ipswich. Could be good or bad with Bogdan, after all he is very uneven as a goalkeeper.

    Bogdan in is a shocker...sounds like DF has lost it on the back of yesterday's quotes about Lonergan. Must win today and next Sat (think we can forget about Burnley) or he's out for me.

    I´m so glad that Howes don´t play Rantie from the start; he´s so quick and fast and Wanderers defence are so stiff and slow in comparison

    Is it only bad luck that we concede goals every game? Then was the last clean sheet?

    Re.the above quote.I've been saying this for quite a while,D. Eff.seems bound and determined to take Bolton down by what ever means he can.Loaning out your better players then scouring the lower leagues for inferior replacements is not a way to win games also it's extracting the urine out of the loyal hard working fans.Get rid.

    If this game doesn't sum up why DF and his cohorts don't get sacked then I don't know what will. 2 nil up, negative approach after half time, poor substitutions, Baptoste should have subbed first half, Trotter walking around injured and he Subs Davies ! No one marking front post on corners, Bored now but could on and on and on. What does this man do in training and tell them at half time.
    One final comment I heard Marc lies say he was a DF fan , What has he ever done to justify that support!

    I've been broadly supportive of Freedman upto press, but I think it's time for a change now. Big question however....do we have the finances to do it as Lawrence, Fleming & co need to go as well!

    Which games are you watching? As far as I can see Sordell has scored 3 for Charlton all season, since when has that been scoring for fun? There are clearly other issues at play with the lad, too.
    Davies scored once for Preston so far and has a good scoring record in the lower leagues but not for us and the many reasons why he was loaned out have already been documented on here, similarly Ngog.

    We got rid of Lee, Megson, Coyle, etc who were dragging us down. Now we are even worse off so how come Freedman is still there? Gartside & Co, who hired him, should admit their mistake and dig into their bank accounts and pay him off.

    Freedman spends too much time talking and fantasising. The players don't seem to know where or how to shoot. Do they practise shooting into the net, between the posts and under the bar?

    Do they know how to play with each other? We never have the same settled team.

    Do they practise or do they spend training sessions having to listen to DF? Do they practise? Practice is different from training.

    We need a strong-minded, loyal, Boltonian to sort us out PLEASE.

    Can't wait to see Sky Sport News showing "Bolton sack Freedman".

    Sorry Dougie but its always the same old excuses, promises of bringing players in and the individual errors story, what they need is a good rollocking, to which DF seems incapable of doing!!!
    My 7 year old daughter could scare the living daylights out of that bunch of spineless excuses for professional footballers, I'd be ashamed to collect my wages at the end of the week!!!!!!
    I'm not a believer of sacking managers but surely enough is enough, it not working and i think the players don't believe in the manager any more, they are simply going through the motions.
    Weather the club can afford to let another manager is another matter!!!!

    We should look at the positives - this point puts us further out of the reach of Yeovil, Charlton and Millwall. After all, we couldn't expect a two-goal lead to be enough to beat the mighty Bounemouth.
    Only three championship teams have managed to beat us at Fortress Reebok this season, and that says a lot about the determination and commitment of our outclassed players.

    I have finally had it with Freedman too. Baptiste and Eagles should have been subbed in the first half when it was obvious they were not having good games but DF is so inflexible he has to wait until his magic 55/60 minute mark to make a substitution when a knackered player could well have incurred an injury. I am also sick to death of his telling us one thing in the week before the game and then doing the opposite on matchday. By another name, this is lying and he is doing it more and more. I cannot read or listen to the drivel he comes out with anymore.

    He has turned out to be more delusional than Coyle and that is saying something.

    Freedman OUT! Gartside OUT! Enough is enough.

    Dougie is extremely fortunate to remain in a job, he has displayed no aptitude for football management and of all the appointments made by Mr Gartside since Sam left, with the exception of Sammy Lee,he is undoubtedly the least able.
