Scrappy game with 2 average sides on the night. Thought we edged it.

We're not even half way through the season and we're doing OK, 7 points off the top with 1 or 2 games in hand on most. Still all to play for.

With 1 or 2 good additions this window I'm still confident of automatics.

Don't want to kick a man when he's down, but I've seen no evidence whatsoever that McArdle is a leader. He's certainly not especially vocal, so not quite sure what you're basing this assertion on.
People assume that because he's experienced, a clogger, and plays at centre back, he's going to have great leadership qualities but I suppose that's not always the case.

Totally disagree with you here. If you watch the games that McArdle has played he clearly is very vocal as you hear him talking to other players and organizing. I don't disagree that he hasn't performed well enough to be selected though.

Kite isn't a wide player.

The solution is simple, put Key at right back, bring Randall over to the right hand side and play Sparkes on the left with Page at full back.

It's glaringly obvious.
This is what I would like to see tried. Also not Laws best position but he can also play left midfield with Sparkes overlapping.

I'd disgaree. With respect, have you been to any games this season? I'm guessing from your location that maybe you haven't. Take it from me, McArdle really isn't very vocal. This isn't intended as a criticism, some people aren't and I dare say he never has been.

2 points dropped tonight.

I Thought Bolton were very poor but had a brief spell of go about them just after they scored. We looked extremely average at best.

If Bowman and Randall score, 3 points are in the bag.

Tricky one up Harrogate Saturday.
