I'm not sure what this guy has been smoking in the good old US of A but from his weekly colulmn in the Bolton News he thinks we can go unbeaten until the end of the season.

''The key is getting off to a winning start against Swansea on Saturday. If we do that, I genuinely believe we can use the result as a springboard to lift us out of the bottom three.


It has boiled down to the fact we probably need something from each and every game to survive. And I’m looking at those three games – Spurs at home, Sunderland away and Stoke away – as the really tricky ones.''

''I’ve gone for a draw in each of them but to be honest, I’d take a win in the first one at Sunderland and lose the other two if it meant putting more distance between ourselves and QPR.''

No offence to all the McGinlay fans on here but he doesn't half talk crap sometimes.

I read this yesterday and had to laugh because he has predicted us to draw our next 3 away games. I can't remember the last away game we drew must have been late 2010/early 2011. So to draw three in a row is pretty unlikely.

If only you had the power to do that......oh wait.

But seriously if Coyle had come out with that you would be calling for his head.

It's interesting that a bona fide BWFC legend makes some positive predictions and even he is mocked for daring to not be a negative, whinging twat.

Not that I can see us drawing our final three away games either, but you do get some funny results at this time of the season, particularly when clubs with something to play for play clubs with nothing to play for.

Stoke away for our last game of the season is a prime example. I can see us winning that one.

Well it's interesting that the usual suspects haven't gone in on him for being a liar, a fanny, and lacking honesty.

Largehat didn't you go in on me when i said QPR would pick up some "funny end of the season results against the big clubs"?

glad you've changed your tune! Wink

I've not changed my tune, for two reasons.

1 - the fixtures we were discussing weren't at the end of the season IMO

2 - QPR were on a terrible run and it was my view that their defeat at the Reebok was a devastating result for them and would knock the stuffing out of them.

What is seemingly completely lost on a lot of the naysayers on this forum is that BWFC are not on a terrible run.

0 points from 6, no goals scored. Yeah, great run.

fair enough, though i wasn't 100% spot on, i did predict that the so called "tougher fixtures" were anything but.

i was proven right by Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and UTD's lackluster performances against some of the lesser sides.

You need more than 2 of something for it to class a run of results.

20 points from 16.
9 points from 5.

We played really well at Newcastle as well, probably the first away game this season where we deserved a point and got nothing.

Natasha no amount of trolling from you is going to convince me we're on a terrible run.

We're on a better run than

West Brom
Liverpool
Fulham
Norwich
Swansea
Stoke
Sunderland
Spurs
Villa
Blackburn
Wolves

Imagine how bad their form must be if ours is "terrible"

At this stage of the season your last couple of weeks results are what's going to impact on your morale/confidence. Our last victory might only have been three games ago but it seems like a long time ago.

Dire run, dire manager, dire club, going down.

Pointless. The only team we have to have better form than is QPR.

No, it's just proof we're not on a "terrible" run.

It isn't pointless, it's logically absurd to say we're on a terrible run when there are 12 teams out of 20 in the division on a worse run than us. It just demonstrates you're either dim, a troll, or a dim troll.

I respect McGinlay for the letter he wrote to Megson.

But he doesn't make a habit of talking sense. I think he was the only fan that still wanted Davies in the side earlier in the season, and even had a bit of a go at the fans for wanting him dropped.

Who gives two hoots about them teams, they are safe, bar 2 who are already pretty much gone.

We on the other hand are in the relegation zone having won only 3 league games in 10, we're not on exactly the best run either.

To say we played well at Newcastle is all well and good but we still lost at the end of the day, just a shame it took a piss poor performance against Fulham to spark them into life.

So a good run has to have caveats.

it has to have been wins against good teams.

the form table is irrelevant if any of the teams below you in said table, are safe from relegation.

when your last 6 games doesn't paint a bad picture, extend the number of games a bit, to make it sound worse.

No one is trying to say we've had a good season it's been absolutely shocking, and i agree it's a shame 3 wins has become a "good" run for us. It is what it is I'm afraid.

I just think people are trying to negate the wins we've had because it's us. If Wigan had won the games we had people would be saying "they've done what they've needed to do, their battling, their getting the job done"

At the moment there are five teams in a relegation dogfight but if Villa lose at home to Sunderland then the odds increase to six teams. If we can beat Swansea tomorrow then our midweek game away to Villa has massive implications especially if Villa have lost.

All this talk about good runs is bollocks, and lets not forget Super John is, literally, in another world. Take a step back, look where we are, consider the mental and physical make-up of the team, their tactical nous, and the pressure they are under. They haven't performed consistently throughout the season, why should they now, with the same players ? Although this is a very unpredictable part of the season, to expect us to burst into life, and clear the board for points, is just too optimistic. We can only take each game as it comes, and hopefully we will pull in enough points to stagger over the finishing line.
