  1. Following the 'day of joy and happiness' thread.... Happy Lee Clark day. 1 year since his appointment.
  2. Bury FC vs Southend United

    You seem to have Phils 3rd leg in your mouth. was it acceptable that he dallied on the ball in the 18 yard box on the goal line, lost it and then we nearly conceded? He had so much time to clear it. He is the worst right back in my 20 years.

    Ran out of likes but you deserve one.
  4. Bury FC vs Southend United

    The other option is to play all 3 and play 3-5-2/5-3-2. A point at Blackburn would be a bonus.
  5. 72 points wasted

    Interesting stat that. Renewed my optimism. Remaining games are: Blackburn (a) - currently 3rd - a draw would be cracking (possible loss) - 0 points Gillingham (h) - 12th - looking a bit dodgy defensively currently so could muster a win. - 3 points Doncaster (a) - 16th - win/draw - 1 point Oldham (h) - 19th - must win, no excuses. - 3 points Peterborough (h) - 10th - tore us apart away, again a draw would be great (possible loss) - 0 points MK Dons (a) - 22nd - another must win. - 3 points Wigan (h) - 2nd - currently in poor form but could change by the time we meet - 1 point Bristol Rovers (a) - 11th - In good form currently. A draw would be great. - 1 point Rochdale (h) - 24th - Must win but we never beat them. - 3 points Walsall (a) - 15th - We did it in the Checkatrade with Smith and Ajose so is possible now. - 3 points Northampton (h) - 20th - must win - 3 points Shrewsbury (a) - 1st - probable loss - 0 points Portsmouth (h) - 9th - win would be great but I can see a draw. - 1 point Wimbledon (a) - 21st - could be a relegation decider. - 3 points I can see a realistic 25 points here which would take us to 51 (Rammy shaker spot on!).
  6. Rochdale's pitch...

    I used to love the Premier League as there was always some form of link to lower leagues. Now its like watching a different countries league. It really has separated from the rest of us.
  7. Bury FC vs Southend United

    Who would you drop for Cameron on Monday? Thompson or Clarke? Or would you leave Cameron out? For me its a tough one. I would probably keep Thompson and Clarke in based on last nights performance.
  8. Bury FC vs Southend United

    He does look like a good keeper. I thought most of the saves last night were routine but other keepers we have had over the years struggled with routine saves.
  9. Phil Edwards friend or foe

    Lung bursting forward runs then kicking it out for a goal kick. Sorry but he isn't good enough. People are forgetting that he dallied on the ball in on the byline in the box and lost it, we nearly conceded albeit a good save from Ripley from which look liked a miss hit cross.
  10. Bury FC vs Southend United

    To be fair I was critical of the Clarke signing but he and Thompson were fantastic last night.
  11. Bury FC vs Southend United

    Agreed, I haven't seen one Dawsonesque tackle since he came back from injury. The injury has shaken him up.
  12. Bury FC vs Southend United

    Point taken about their injuries, but my response is should they be playing if they cant give 100%? Nope.
  13. Bury FC vs Southend United

    amazing. Second half he was torn to bits. Like he has been all season.
  14. Bury FC vs Southend United

    We were overrun in midfield in the 1st half and well done to Lowe who wasn’t afraid to make a change bringing Tutte on and taking the ineffective Ismael off. Edwards is a complete liability. Can’t pass, can’t defend, can’t attack, has no positional sense. Torn apart in the second half time and time again. The succession of 3 corners in the 1st half where the ball kept coming back out to the taker was criminal. Thompson was outstanding tonight, can’t understand Clark’s reasoning. Shows how poor Clark was as a manager. Who would’ve thought we would be saying ‘we missed Danns tonight’, this time last year? Dawson is a waste of a Shirt. The game passes him by and since the Sunderland challenge where he got injured, I am yet to see him commit to a tackle. He was harshly booked today, a foul was debatable, let alone a yellow. Laurent can play the odd good ball but he gives it away far too much. Would rather have Tsun or Styles as you can forgive them more. Overall it was a poor game which was very bitty, probably not helped by the itch which bobbled in places and stuck in others. A point is better than a loss though, and it’s much improved since Lowe came in.
  15. Phil Edwards friend or foe

    He was torn apart tonight, every attack from Southend came from that side. Can’t defend, can’t attack, can’t pass.
