The only time we look half a team is in the first half when we go forward, What does this manager say to his team at half time. , one up front simply does not work ! No excuses ! This man is ruining a decent squad, the same squad that most pundits made favorites for the title. One center forward and no left back at the club is a managerial disgrace. Pathetic!

After the first half I thought this was the best performance of a Bolton team since Dougies first two games in charge, though back to the same lethargic, almost clueless team we've come to expect,in the second.

Whilst it would be untrue and unfair to say the team are racehorses led by a donkey,this set of players are the least gifted of any Bolton team in the last twenty years and Dougie is without doubt the weak link.

I do not expect him to be sacked,even though I believe even Phil G. knows his shortcomings. The plain truth is Bolton can not afford to get rid.

We are travelling the same path as Wolves.

Everyone said they were too good to go down and eventually they would turn it around but it just didn`t happyen.

I dread to think what the attendance would be in the first division because it is shocking as it is now.
