    First half excellent, second half awful. Again subs not utilised even when Kerr limped round for the last 15 which could easily have gone pear shaped.
    Will we go up ? yeah, will we win it? Not sure. The players are now showing signs of fatigue, Lang especially.
    I’m not sure starting Cousins was a good decision, he’d be better used coming on for tired legs.

    I was prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt until I read the last sentence.

    Awful tired performance and error ridden throughout.
    Snatched a draw at the death and results went for us elsewhere.
    The promotion bus running out of fuel but stuttering towards the depot.

    Yes, brilliant wasn’t it! I’d take the same on Saturday.

    A couple of clubs have stopped doing matchday programmes. They were always one of the main sources of advertising income but that’s not the case now. Apart from the FA Cup Final and the Europa Cup matches I haven’t bought a programme in god knows how long.

    Before the match last Saturday it showed the pictures of those we have lost since our previous home match. I realise there were time constraints, but it was a bit quick and I’d like to be able to see it again as I thought there were photos of people I half knew, but I couldn’t be sure if it was them or not. Would the club be able to put the it on their webiste so that we can watch it back again?

    Whelan could have stopped an even bigger shitstorm if he hadn’t saved the warriors in the first place. Why is the new scheme getting the begging bowl out? The rugby have been doing their Knights of Central Park thing for years.

    Mutty you’ve shown occasionally you are capable of reasoned debate, but unfortunately your small mindedness seems to prevent you doing it often enough.

    I suppose that’s what comes of all those years doing an impression of Captain Darling.

    Hopefully the dumbing down process at the small time club has prepared him for training on a ploughed field with jumpers for goalposts and playing on a shit pitch in a soulless stadium with thousands of empty seats every week.

    You said it, he will coming back to a training ground that was good enough to get to and stay in the Premier League, he’ll be glad to get away from training on a ploughed field with jumpers for goalposts and playing on a shit pitch in a soulless stadium with thousands of empty seats every week. Though I will concede he will still be playing in front of thousands of empty seats Still.

    Dear me you’re a small minded individual. Alongside your fickle nature, you come across as a very sad embittered old man. Maybe the fact that your military career was more Darling than McNab has had a detrimental effect on your state of mind. (repling to mutty not Jay obviously)

    You 2 faced bastard. You’ve spent all day on Latics Speyk slagging the players off.

    Maybe something happened before the game that forced us to change? Maybe we saw their side and felt Lang was a better option?

    We’ve just beaten 2 good sides, dragged ourselves out the bottom 4 and still some fans are having a moan. Unbelievable.

    Who’s moaning? I’m just saying that Richardson put Aasgaard in the starting eleven then within an hour dropped him to the bench, why didn’t he wait until he saw Sunderlands line up before he made his final decision?

    Obviously Aasgaard was fit to play, if not why was he on the bench? He could have been needed at anytime.

    How do you know Aasgaard was pencilled in to start originally?

    I agree all the chopping and changing hasn’t helped, but sometimes Richardson as made changes for the sake of it.

    Take the other night for example, Aasgaard dropped for Lang

    In fairness to Leam it worked & was a good selection choice.

    In hindsight yes it turned out well and a well earned 3 points, Aasgaard was tremendous against Doncaster last Saturday and even got on the score sheet, the news at around 4pm on Tuesday said same team as against Donny with Lang on the bench, only for Richardson to change his mind.

    Spare a thought for Aasgaaard, he must have been a tad pissed off before kick off.

    As far as Leam Richardson is concerned it wasn’t hindsight, it was foresight. He made a change in advance that worked. His job as manager is to make decisions and if anybody gets a tad pissed off then tough. Aasgaard will have a part to play in the run in but Tuesday’s selection has been fully vindicated.

    No debate…..Nixons info has never been too far off. The Spanish/Yanks were close. After Stanley’s takeover trail gone cold statement bollocks last week ,Nixon stated the Bahrani deal was close to completion. Administration have been horrendous,sooner they’ve gone and we can start re-building the better. Let’s just hope the Admin don’t throw another hurdle in the way.

    Nixon only said it was close after the Supporters Club said they had spoken to the Bahrainis and they were getting on with it, shortly after Stanley’s bit of nonsense.

    The supporters club have been criticised for not saying anything, but they were the first to say the Bahraini’s were doing it. The admins were criticised for releasing regular statements that said nothing. I think the SC got it bang on.

    I don’t do twitter so you’ve obviously got me mixed up with somebody else.

    Do you believe everything you read? Gelhardt on 3.5k a week? No way would we be paying an 18 year old with a handful of starts to his name that kind of money. There was another one of these doing the rounds a couple of weeks back that showed Massey on 8k. Its people guessing and speculating.

    Exactly so, as fans we have 3 choices

    Dip into our pockets to fund the monthly wage bill. We need a target, a figure monthly to aim at so let’s says its 250k we have a target to meet.
    Or
    Option 2 sell our prize assets for peanuts
    Or
    Option 3 the unthinkable liquidation and start again 10 tiers down.

    I’m still staggered that with all his wealth DW has gone silent and disappeared off the planet.
    I know if it was me I couldn’t and wouldn’t watch it die without helping even if only for a month or 2 or buy it and give it back to the supporters club who can then offer it as part of the sale free for a % on the board along with their 800k
    DW beggars belief, you can take it with you

    I’m sure it was stated somewhere that DW is no longer in control of his faculties and his family had power of attorney over his finances. So he isn’t taking it with him. His family aren’t interested in Latics, so I don’t blame them one bit for not giving their inheritance away to something that isn’t important to them.
