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.
Looks like Bolton have been saved!

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!
