Uppafuckingport !!!


Spot on mate

Glad you are both happy - pleased with the win but we had the luck today - neat finish from a Bolton mistake - County players should be winning and knocking on those balls - with service Maynard along with a few others could score some goals.
Collins looked useful in parts but drifted out of game too much - did Ledley touch the ball?
Good three points but a promotion performance I don’t think so.

Best performance of 2021 for me. We nullified them in the second half and grabbed our chance. Would've been even better if we had all been there ..

Good ground out win.
Scary as hell in 90+4 with the ball on our line.
Let’s not mess it up from here on in, 3 points clear of 8th place.
Why do play better against the better sides and poorly against the lower sides!

Great win today. The only home win in league 2. Shows how unpredictable the league is. We still have a chance of automatic promotion if we can find some consistent form.

Well, it's got to be said, Bolton were a very ordinary team. For fifteen minutes we were chasing shadows but then they just got worse. We put pressure on them higher up the pitch and they were in a mess. The comment about hardly seeing Joe Ledley should surely be seen as a measure how we kept them out of the danger area for most of the time Ledley was on the pitch.

Very good question. Obviously a different mindset. Maybe sub-consciously?
The amateur psychologist in me would suggest we are more tentative when favourites for a win, and in recent years don't seem to handle the weight of expectation in the League positively.
Appear to play with greater freedom when underdogs, hence so many cup upsets.

I totally agree that was not a promotion performance BUT it was a promotion result. Another 8 of those please!

Some of our fans do I guess. That was Bolton’s first defeat in 15 games but hey, we were lucky so I guess it doesn’t count :roll:

What is bizarre is the team you supposedly support beat a side unbeaten in 15 and rather than just be happy with it, people would rather piss and moan about how lucky we were or how crap Bolton were. Seems some of our fans are never happy.

Let’s face it Bolton should have gone in at ht with a lead but fair play a battling performance got us the points and they just didn’t look as good 2nd half apart from the last 10 nail-biting minutes. We’re still in with an outside chance and must battle like that every game from now on. A double over Bolton is pretty sweet tonight.
