Just decided not to go tonight !

Somehow, I just can't summon up the enthusiasm !
Why is that.I wonder ?
It's never happened before, in the last 50 years of following the Latics !

Never mind, the club can still count my season ticket and pretend that all is well.

At least in the dark days of the past, the owners never hid.
Now we don't appear to have a long term strategy at the club; well, not one that they are prepared to tell us about.
We now appear to be prepared to sell our better players, with no sign of replacements.
Don't even mention: one up front / not playing to maximise players individual strengths / negative & protectionist approach to the game / never giving our young guns a chance / persisting with below par performers / poor choice and timing of substitutions / etc.

All in all a depressing picture that feels like we are already resigned to sinking into league one without a whimper.

Before any smart arse says "get behind your club"; just remember that I have spent enough to buy a classic Jensen Interceptor Mk2, following the Latics over my lifetime. I am one of the most positive people that I know; so it must be bad, to deflate my enthusiasm,

That said; I'll be back for the old enemy = Knob End !
Today is the first day of the rest of the season !

Unlikely hero’s tonight !!
Moore ,Lowe and Jacobs best players for us in that eventful second half but they all did really well.
The subs seems to work tonight and while I still think we will be relegated at least they gave us something to cheer about at home.
To be fair to Lostock I also was thinking about the warmth of indoors and why do I bother after that absolutely terrible first half display.

I was ready for walking out when Gelhardt was subbed off.

Somehow, tonight was typical Latics

He was no better, or worse, than anyone else up to that point, apart from playing in Robinson in the 1st half. But as we were on top I had visions of him linking up with More to win the game. I never expected the subs to have such a dramatic effect, why would I after this season so far?
Credit where credits due, the subs worked, Jacobs looked fresh, Lowe scored, we held on.

I'm sure you've seen plenty worse in your time Lostock. You used to go to all the aways back in Jewell's first season when we were getting stuffed at places like Wrexham with players walking round with their hands in their pockets. Much worse of an experience than we are seeing now.

Are you sure the problem isn't sitting next to Horc for 90 minutes?

I keep going in the hope we call pull it off. As for stu's comment ...ffs lad give it a rest. The view of lostocks is one shared by many others, If not we'd have 15,000 every week.
All's we want is, players giving their best regardless of the quality and the manager getting it right both starting 11 and substitutions then Latics fans will back him all the way.

No one can doubt the past 12 months plus has tested the patience of every Latics fan. We have some really tough games starting this Saturday. I've a feeling Leeds are still p1ssed with us last year so a backlash might be on the books, I'm hoping I'm wrong.

The booing when Gelhardt was subbed was totally unnecessary and unwarranted. More importantly it does the lad no favours whatsoever and only adds the pressure that has already been placed on his clearly self-evident, inexperienced shoulders.

If losing games in the 2nd tier has tested your patience you probably need to reassess who you actually are supporting. If you cant stomach a few losses in the 2nd tier when you've seen us in the non league days then again you probably need to reassess stuff.

VAT was ridiculed for jumping ship, lostock gets praised for it.

Ali, you have always been Latics you always will lad. The other night I watched a couple of pieces on Latics TV on the stadium Drive academy and afterwards I felt so good and proud about my club as we have always for most of the time. Along with our other academy teams and facilities this fabulous club is in great shape and we will bring our own talent through even if it is only to keep us financially stable by selling them on for millions. At present the only thing bringing the club down is the fortunes of the first team. We all know whose fault that is and once rectified we will be ok. I know you will never lose the faith, like me this club is in your blood. However long it takes we will be successful again and adding to our bulging trophy cabinet. Come on you Latics.

I'm thinking the opposite on this. To be fair the lad only had a handful of touches most of them being productive, the jinking run in the box, the sublime pass to Robinson, the run from the corner when he was scythed down just outside the box. He probably felt himself that he had not really imposed himself on the game, so the reaction from the crowd when he was subbed must have made him feel that his contribution had been appreciated.
Listening to Cook's post match interview he more a less said that it was planned to give him 60 mins and then bring Jacobs on. Why would that be when he doesn't know what impact the lad was having on the game. He could have scored two and be trying for his hat trick but he would have still brought him off it seems. It's either that or he was looking for an excuse as to why he brought him off following the crowds reaction.

Spot on JR.
If you remember too Williams was down injured when the board went up.
But Morsy signalled "hang on" to see whether Williams needed to go off, considering that something different may be needed.
He did go off - but Gelhardt was still subbed. Cook had made his decision, and come hell or high water Gelhardt was coming off for Jacobs, no matter what the impact of Williams having to go off was going to make to teh formation. Incredibly stubborn - or else unable to think "on the hoof".

At first I actually thought they had held up 38 rather than 30.

It’s very nice to have the crowd on your side but with it comes a great deal of expectation which can have a negative effect. I thought at times he was trying too hard by running at players, because that’s what the fans expect him to do, and getting caught. It’s sad indictment of where we’re at when the challenge of staying in this league is resting on the performances, good or indifferent, of an untried 17 year old.

I thought so too but I fully expected it. Cook can't do anything right at the moment and even if we manage to survive (im probably 51/49 that we will but most of the 51 is heart ruling head) I doubt he will get any of the credit.

The difference between the vast majority on here and you is,
Most on here have opinions were as you are nothing more than keyboard stalker (2 mins behind as per usual) who offers nothing bar been child like remarks in your replies.
You ran out of Christmas colouring books and felt tips ?, you come across abit weird m8, abit creepy tbh the way you stalk
