Ultimately a poor result, but as always the 90 minutes is just a small part of the day…..
Head across the Pennines for the 5th time this season, traffic an absolute nightmare.
Anyone who has been to Bolton will know that the ground is nowhere near anywhere, SAFCBlog embark on a ridiculously long walk to find a beer…
Still working on the finer details of the Greater Manchester WPC Calendar, but it’s taking shape now….
Clearly a bad result…. but….
- We had enough quality on the pitch to win
- We had enough clear cut chances to win
- Bolton were magnificent
- I’ve been critical of Will Grigg in the past – thought he did well today and was the best player in the 2nd half
SAFCBlog has always backed Jack Ross, it’s evident the pressure is building though? Ultimately it’s a results business? Ironically I don’t think it’s actually results that are creating the pressure? More so the manner of performances?
- Have we improved?
- Have we learnt from last year?
Football is a game of opinions, (and rightly so). For what it’s worth, my opinion is that abuse of the players and manager offers no benefits? I obviously respect different opinions. I’m always really proud of how little hassle there is at our away days, especially considering the numbers we travel in…. it’s generally hassle free and good humoured etc. Whilst northern trips with large allocations attract plenty of pissed up / coked up young uns; the atmosphere today was vile. The group in front of us were at it all day with fights breaking out at least 3 times – there were loads of kids on the vicinity who were understandably clearly shaken. I accept people will disagree, people are passionate about SAFC…. but fans scrapping with each other is not something we need to see? I might be being slightly idealistic – but let’s try and stay classy? I occasionally take my kids to games, I was glad they weren’t there today – vile atmosphere and embarrassing behaviour, (tiny minority as always).
Obviously a bit deflated, but always there’s plenty to lift spirits…..
We go again on Wednesday…
IN JACK I REALLY WANT TO TRUST
