Well. Far and away the better side for 70 minutes. Didn't get that bit of luck (or enough shots on target) while we were on top. Sucker punched. Never looked like getting back in it. Fitness an issue - which begs the question what the hell we've been doing all pre-season? Get them in for double sessions for a bit, get them properly conditioned. There is no excuse for not doing something so basic.

Bury look more likely to be saved at least. I hope this deal does save them.

And now Bolton threatened with expulsion again over their protracted takeover. Football is so depressing at times.

Another dire performance from yeovil this weekend. We really need Fry to sell up and get out the club!
With Bury yet to start, Bolton in increased danger of expulsion after their kids limped to a couple of 5-0 maulings and Coventry not playing at home, League One this season looks like a complete mess.

It looks to me that the EFL only seems to have tools to punish clubs rather than help ones in genuine peril, and it just ends up with a negative spiral. I accept serial rule-breakers need to face some form of penalty and its pretty obvious Bury & Bolton have ended up in the hands of some people who have no business in being involved as football club owners, but I'm not convinced they've been entirely helpful throughout this debacle.

EDIT: This was posted before Bolton's administrators put out a statement saying the takeover collapsed and the club is to be liquidated this week if it doesn't meet the new EFL deadline tomorrow. Its looking pretty fatal.

Sad to hear, but looks like Bolton could be all but gone! I can't see them being saved now. And it wouldn't surprise me if Bury fall too.
It seems the takeover is OFF so looks like Bury's fucked!
Man, this prolonged teetering on the edge of a bottomless pit by Bolton & Bury has been a rollercoaster ride with each glimmer of renewed hope followed by yet another setback. A malfunctioning rollercoaster ride full of screaming and puking kids, that is.

Bury have been officially expelled, while Bolton have been given a final deadline of 2 weeks from now.

What a complete fucking mess.

Gutting for Bury. It should be a wake-up call to English football, but it won't be.

My great hope is that we'll meet again. Preferably because Bury have risen from the ashes to make it back to the Football League.
Phew. I'm glad it seems Bolton have seemingly been saved but it's a shame Bury cannot.
Jesus. We NEVER get the break.

1-0 up, James Collins takes a dive. I can't say anything other than that. There's no contact, I've watched the replay half a dozen times looking and it just doesn't exist. He's come blindside and thrown himself over as soon as he can. And the ref buys it. 1-1. The lad's going to get a 2-match ban, but that's not going to bring us any points and kick-start our season.

If the first is an understandable error from the referee after having pressure applied, the second is inexplicable. We have a player down with a head injury. The law's absolutely clear: stop the game immediately. There's no excuse in the world that should let the officials off that one. It's not hard to understand. It's not a subjective judgement. Head injury = stop play. There was a significant stoppage after the goal for Jonathan Hogg to receive treatment and he was later subbed off. I do have to say I do agree once again with Hudson's comments on it and we should share some responsibility, but it's not responsibility we should have to share because it's absolutely straightforward.

So yeah. What should be a welcome relief from the utter misery of the last 18 months has been snatched from us. I should say that at 0-0 in the first half we were shambolic, but the second half was miles better. After getting in at 0-0 you're thinking we might just nick something, but apparently not.
3 wins on the bounce! Played some good football Saturday, positive signs!
If the League Cup game is anything to go by, the Cowleys will get us organised. Maybe not the prettiest, maybe masters of the dark arts, but organised, hard to beat and scrapping for everything. Which is what we need right now.

If they bring a winning mentality, hard work and results, that's all we can ask for.
Four wins in a row for the first time since March 2016! Its still a long way to go, but we're finally looking on the brighter side of things on the pitch!

Southend actually managed a win and a clean sheet after letting in 64456 goals in previous 8 games.

6 ON THE BOUNCE! WHAT EVEN IS THIS!
A random Friday night fixture for ourselves, we weren't on TV so don't know why we got moved?! Either way, another win! Our position in the table boosted as much by games played as by points. Not too happy with our games at the moment, but if we keep getting the odd win then I can't see Larry going. Not a good start for our old manager Appleton at last night's opponents Lincoln.
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Another frustrating afternoon. Millwall are never the side you want to face when you're on a downer, and so it proved. That said, we were architects of our own downfall yet again with a single individual mistake costing us two points.

To give the ref his dues, I think a majority of officials would have blown for a foul with the keeping error. Not many would have allowed the goal to stand for fear of having made a mistake. On the other hand, how he didn't give us two penalties is mystifying. The first one is a trip and the second... Bloody hell. He's got a fistful of shirt, taken both legs out and got nowhere near the ball. After the last 18 months it's really difficult to stomach. We're down here because we've made horrendous mistakes, but when everything out of your control is also going against you in games where otherwise you're doing the majority of things right it just feeds the negative mindset. In a one-off game it sparks a fighting spirit, but when you've been down on your heels, haven't won on a Saturday in over 500 days, have been relegated, have lost 43 of the last 61 games, etc, it just compounds the misery.

We're poor. But we're also owed a hell of a lot of luck.

7 Wins on the bounce for little old Yeovil town in their revival. Second in the National league now and just a point off Bromley who we beat 3-1 on Saturday. Coupld of tough games coming up now.
WE WON!

Perfectly executed away game plan. Stoke were reduced to potshots from outside the box and never really troubled us. We had few shots, but we did create the two best chances of the game and buried one of them. With the ball we were pretty appalling, but without it we were solid and disciplined - we did the basics out of possession well and after being so shaky, cannot complain.
We won again! Twice in a week after 7 months without!

Thumping win today. There was a sense of catharsis about the result with certain players and it was good to see smiles on faces again. Hopefully this can give us a real springboard up the table.

And take note of the quality of the goals we're scoring at the moment. This week we've bagged 5, all of which have been superb in their own way. Both Grant's and Bacuna's were fantastic finishes today (no idea how Grant turned and shot for his, really great play with his back to goal, while Bacuna's was just a sweet, sweet strike of the ball), with the build up for Kachunga's being worthy of note.

The end of the winning streak. We blew it against Hartlepool, trailed 1-0 just after the break. Equalised in the 91st minute only to then be countered and concede in the 92nd minute to lose 2-1! Signs of Yeovil old unfortunately. Roll on Tuesday night, at home to promotion chasing Woking.
Bounced back from Saturday with our 8th win from our last 9 games! The boys are playing exceptionally well. Still 3rd in the table but a point off the top two.

I can only apologise to any who watched our game on Monday away at Bolton. It was dire. They remain our bogey team, or one of them.

Take a point there. Dire for an hour, got a soft penalty (it WAS a penalty, contrary to what Sky reckon - they're all banging on about the arm and contact there not being enough whilst completely missing Bennett's right leg booting Diakhaby's calf as he goes into the box. Theatrical from Diakhaby, but Bennett cannot complain), gave away two awful goals, then livened up when Bacuna came on for the equaliser.

Tough place to go, good point, move on to Middlesbrough in midweek.
Haringey Borough v Yeovil: Police investigate as FA Cup tie abandoned after reports of racial abuse

God this is an embarrassing time for our club. I'm 99% sure they aren't any of our regulars, but it brings shame on our club now. The racial abuse is only 'alleged' at this stage, with many claiming it didn't happen. However things did get out of hands when a bottle was thrown.

I'm all for us being kicked out the cup, but it'll be harsh when they're not our fans, they're probably not even football fans acting like that.
