Bounce Backability

Bounce Backability

Saturday`s match at home to Bolton is a huge one on many fronts for the super reds.

Firstly it will test Flicker`s management skill in what formation he goes with, against a team who themselves have found a bit of form at this important stage of the season.

Secondly how will the players react to the unconvincing defensive display against Bristol City! Can they get that work ethic back, playing for each other and the fans?

The fans will have a massive effect on the game, either positive or negative depending on how the first half hour or so goes. Hopefully the Bristol City performance was just a blip. However Bolton will be buzzing now after two straight wins , so it`s vital that we don`t give them anything at set pieces, otherwise the Davies` (they`ve got quite a few) will have a field day.

I urge fans to get behind the team and remain positive throughout this match. How we bounce back from defeat is extremely important and we as fans play a bigger part than many of you realise.

If we start the game badly and there are moans and groans from the crowd this will affect the players and could ultimately be the difference between staying up and going down.

This article was written by regular poster Engleberthumbertyke (with my own bit added at the end).

It would be nice to get some more fans on the site, but momentum seems to be building, so keep up the good work folks and hopefully there will be many more opinions in the coming weeks (no negative ones I hope..?)

I do have an article for you if you don't mind but you might not want to publish it. Didn't know being a realist would cause such problems with other fans.

Tony, I don't think anyone on here has a problem with realism, but being so negative when the team were winning regularly is something I can never understand, you might well be right that we end up going down, but if you can't be positive when the team are winning and playing well, then I don't know when you can..? there's been plenty of tome to moan this season, but not now (surely)!

I see your point. But if you think I've been moaning now you should have heard me when Hill was in charge.

I can well imagine... would I be right in thinking 'Bear with a sore head' by any chance...?

A good article this one, certainly got everyone talking and Tony only had a semi moan.
