    Excellent changes. Trotter didn't put a foot wrong on Saturday (although many will disagree of course) and Feeney can add that necessary attacking quality we need.

    Least we're not playing with the -2 handicap that was Zat Knight, like last season. Shame that Wilkinson not even on the bench, injury? Three centre midfielders on the bench so weird.
    Medo dropped, he and Spearing in the middle aren't adventurous at home especially so not too bothered.

    How many penalties have we conceded since we got relegation. Seems like its every week. That's 2 in 2 at home. Either the standard of refereeing is poorer in this league or there's something fundamentally wrong with our defending. Was bad with Coyle but not improved with Dougie. Think it could be a mix of both as a lot look soft. But Spearing's was just stupid but he never got any blame from the manager.

    Don't normally pay too much attention to match stats but the figures for the first two home games are shocking.

    Absolute disgrace! 38% possession at home again! 2 shots on target, the last coming 3 mins into injury time. Another awful start to the season and nothing to suggest we will get better. The time for Dougie to go was long ago, he knows no transfer kitty equals no redundancy. Job for keeps no matter how bad he is. And he is awful.

    Come on Eddie Davies, you had to do Gartsides work for him with Coyle now make the same decision and get rid of both of these now!

    Pulis wouldn't touch Wanderers with a bargepole. Don't delay the inevitable, put the club into administration, take the points reduction hit and start again without Gartside or Eddie Davies.

    Say It As You See It 10:24pm Tue 19 Aug 14

    SOS going out to Big Sam. West Ham are taking you for a ride please come home. I really dont care about pretty football. We need someone to take control, someone who strikes fear into the players. Do you think any of these players will lose sleep tonight because I dont. We need to stop taking cast offs from Millwall and Palace, a manager who doesnt sign his mates when they are useless (Beckford) a manager who doesnt always see positives when there clearly is none, and a manager who actually has a clue about his own position from when he played. Loads of forwards been available this summer, too much emphasis got put into "we are trying our hardest to sign Juke" (Was never going to happen as long as a fee was involved and anyone who thought it was is deluded) while proven goal scorers in this division like Matty Fryatt where available for free. While most teams where getting put through their paces in pre season ours where on a PGL holiday in Denmark. Mountain biking and canoeing seriously. FREEDMAN HAS TO GO BEFORE ITS TOO LATE

    Subs 30 minutes too late, Beckford should have come on for Lee. Played with 3 upfront and gone for it. We did end up with 3 upfront but wheater ffs. Nobody will touch this club as it is. Only managers that will be interested are the likes of Phil Brown and warnock. Eddie howe for me but why would he leave Bournemouth

    Some good comments from other fans. Stating the obvious but it's fair to say we are in BIG TROUBLE.
    Inept manager, tactically clueless who offers no leadership (apart from the silly hand gestures from the touchline at god knows who?). For too long now he has made poor team selections, employed incorrect tactics/formations, made weird as well as late substitutions in games - the latest by taking off our best player/forward on the night(v Boro), Craig Davies, and pushing Wheater up front to take his place.....completely baffling??

    Jamie Thomas

    Put him on... David Lee says he is a proven goalscorer. Roon' ey was his age when he stepped into fame at Everton...

    Jamie Thomas might as well get his chance with Zak Clough, they CANNOT be as bad as Jermaine 'Two Left Feet' Beckford.

    I agree. Michael Owen comes to mind as well. If you're good enough you're old enough.
    Beckford will never be good enough for BWFC, neither will Trotter and surely they cannot be the future. Thomas, Clough, Wilkinson, Kellett et al ARE the future - give them their chance.

    At least Huddersfield's manager as man enough to admit he wasn't up to the job. Freedman should be embarrassed to cash his paycheck, but then again, his mentor Gartside has taught him very well to ignore the fans and his conscience.
    Freedman blamed to ref for the loss to Middlesbro , but ask him who was responsible for the fact that Bolton didn't have one shot on target from open play until the 93rd minute. He's a con man and if Eddie Davis REALLY loved BWFC as much as he claims, he would fire him NOW!!!!!

    Yes Beckford is in double figures already this season... wide, wide, wide, over... done!

    The youth product seems to be showing the bigger children how it is done at a fraction of the cost. The academy and development team have some raw hungry talent that needs to get onto the REEBOK pitch... it'll never be the Macaroni.
