    Akpan was disgraceful tonight, right down there with a Josh Wright level of effort. Anderson wasn’t really any better, but he put effort in. We need better and we need it now. Oldhams a big game now.

    It came from me.
    I have a business associate whom has had a Executive box at Bolton for a few years and this is where the info came from.
    I'll bell him before then end of the week to see if there is anything else in it.

    Jon would rather bin Doyle off than agree that Bowyer is hanging his player out to dry by playing him in a role he has even publicly said he can’t do. Sticking him up top and giving him zero service is somehow Doyle’s fault and not Bowyer’s.....!

    Doyle needs to be used how every other club throughout his career has used him, and he generally scores goals. he's not suddenly got no ability - we just aren't making anything of his ability by playing him in roles he is ill suited.

    Well going by the comments in this mornings paper nothing is imminent, we do want to bring another couple in but there won't be a knee jerk reaction after the Preston defeat.

    As How states, think it will be loans now, probably last minute, so we have to try and find a way to eke out a couple of wins with the current squad for now

    If the budget has gone like you say I'd say we best get used to what's here because no money = no players.

    I honestly dont think were miles off being a quality L2 outfit, a bit of tweaking and a coupe of quality midfield additions and we wont be far off. If Paudie replaces AOC as a starter, Longridge starts at LB now hes fit, that should improve us straight away. Add to that getting a tune out of McCartan and Wood and a couple more in and were onto a winner. I think the main factor will be getting Bowyers strongest side out there all together, which he hasnt had the luxury of doing yet, plus getting the formation right with some width. A thug of a central midfielder and a left sided player who can carry the ball up field should be top of the wishlist for me

    Not a knee Jerk from Preston. It's been poor since the start of the season.

    We urgently need better players in midfield and if Bowyer and the board can't see this then that's a massive worry but carry on playing Anderson and hoping Reeves might be magic man & let's see how far that gets us.

    I'm getting a bit bored of this now. How long can we keep looking retrospectively at his ability until we decide he's just not cutting it at Bradford? Do we change the whole formation on the hope that miraculously he starts scoring goals? Oh wait a minute, isn't Bowyer doing that at the moment - by shoehorning into the team in the hope he can offer something? Good strikers are adaptable and predatory - not just one trick ponies. The fact that no one has come in for him speaks volumes to me. I feel sorry for his loss of form, and it must be frustrating for him that he's been played out of position, but if he can't change his game to suit our formation, or if he can't step up and get the nod in his natural position ahead of Donaldson and Vaughan, then he's not suitable for our first team.

    Thats the frustrsting thing. We are close to having a squad capable of challenging for promotion, just needs that bit more slackening of the purse strings, to allow GB to bring in 2 or 3 more quality players in

    Yes 2 games ago.

    It'd you think Anderson, Palmer, Devine and Colvile as our midfield with Doyle playing as a 10 don't need improving upon then you need move from your cloud in Plymouth to Bradford to get a closer look at how poor our midfield is.
