Got there late today and couldn't get a programme. Ruined my match day routine.

good result but we didn't play well for most of the second half and it looked like Scunny could snatch it until we found a bit extra late on

I think the problem we have is that we press so much especially in the first half we don't have the energy to do that for a whole match and that lets teams in, but fair play they kept going and Henry took his goal well. Hopefully that will give him a bit of confidence

Good first half, sloppy in the second, Clough has looked out of sorts for a couple of games now, maybe a rest needed and let Clayton or Henry have a chance.

Good game, Scunthorpe were worth at least a point.

Played ok first half but once again Parky's half-time team talk seemed to put us on the back foot in the second half.

Shit defending for their goal, and we were pretty shaky at the back for most of the half.

Clough did nowt, Ameobi his usual beat four men then lose the ball, Madine won the odd header but nothing more.

Yet we still won.

A proper winger to replace Ameobi would go down a treat in January, as would a striker who knows where the net is. I've heard ALF is pissed off at Wigan.

We couldn't afford his boots never mind his wages.

Wigan would pay the majority of his wages. Or Norpig.

Your deluded if you think that we can replace Ameobe with a better winger at this level, take the blinkers off the guy works hard, scores goals and unlocks defences. You know what lets get rid!!!

I think you're the deluded one, and I think people are slowly realising that I was right all the time.

For all his fancy footwork there is never an end product. When did he last put a cross in that created a goal? Or a pass?

He's a luxury we can afford at the moment, but when we hit the next shit patch he's a fooking liability.

The fact we haven't extended his loan gives me hope that Parky follows my work.

Class told in th'end. Apart from work rate, Scunthorpe offered little. Ref was poor, and easily swayed by their intimidation. Anyone else notice their manager constantly berating the fourth official? Henry shut him up.

Wilson was playing well, hope he's back asap. 

Ameobi, although relatively quiet today, links up well with Wilson.

Sympathy for Clough, he's not suited to playing on the left and needs a more central role. We all know what the lads capable of.

Agree with most of what you say apart from  Scunthorpe offered little.
I thought that they played well- one of the best outfits we've played against so far this season. Some of their passing taught us a lesson in how to go forward when in possession.
The big problem for us has been the same all season- we  don't offer any real constant threat in the box. Madine is  efficient in getting his head or chest to long balls but there's no one round about him picking up the layoffs. I know many of you will disagree- but we've got the defence sorted out, the midfield( with Spearing) does the job well, but the goals for tally says it all. We are a low scoring side and need somehow to increase the goals scored column. With the current 'attack' that's not going to happen

I agree. For all Clough's talents he drifts in and out (mainly out) of games. He's a slightly better version of Mavies.

This team would walk the league if we had a striker like Billy Sharp.

They are a busy side, but that's about it. They weren't good enough to press home their advantage when we gave em their sloppy goal. They failed to spot Derik's weaknesses at right back when he came on for the impressive Wilson. Alnwick pulled off a couple of great saves, other than that we nullified their threats. 
Oxford and Sheffield are the only two sides who've caused us problems this season imo and we came out on top in two of those games.
There's a good spine to Bolton's team now, that if it could be extended to the front men, would see us walk this league, as has been said above.

Well if i am deluded i would be most surprised if you ran a poll Nat, simply stating keep Ameobe or let him go. If more than one person (you) said let him go then i would be Gobsmacked and to be honest think they haven't a clue about football.
