"Relegation T-shirt singing Hare Krishna, man you should have seen them kicking..."

Ah, forget it. lol You boys have even got me following the second-class division, seeing as all your teams have been *ahem* relegated there.

Hah. i like to think we play third-class football, Jim. 3-1 battering by Hull City for Bolton today. They won't sack Owen Coyle, but they couldn't do it quick enough for me. But whoever replaces him has a hell of a problem with a bunch of lazy/talented or totally untalented players.

Last season I remember the routine hatred that poor ol' Stevie Kean had to deal with from the Blackburn faithful, but the supporters for Bolton just adored Coyle! And they anchored the bottom of the table virtually all season, until Wigan--who miraculously escaped relegation--kept that spot warm for them.

Leeds United 3-Blackburn 3


Happy with the start to our season - holding on today would have seen us in second place. Also pleasing was the crowd - at over 24,000 it was around 4,000 more than any other game in that league, with a couple being watched by fewer than 10,000.

Spitter is starting to win people over as well. If only he can direct his expectoration downwards for the rest of the season...

Adored is a bit much, Jim - well, maybe at the start - mostly we were just thankful it wasn't Megson. He certainly did a lot better from the fans than Kean, that's for sure. Though he wasn't much better a manager.


We've given him a massive amount of time and what we thought was understanding, but turns out was rope. He's a nice bloke and all, just abso-bloody-lutely clueless. Daniel Sturridge kept us up the year before with 8 goals in ten games.

Phil Gartside is just slime, which is a massive problem.

I say adored because on either the Premier League show or Sky Sports, there was a piece with the supporters cheering Coyle on and just falling all over themselves in gratitude that he was there. I remember thinking "But they're awful--in last place!"

There was a match last season between Bolton and Blackburn, and there was a telling shot of Steve Kean closing his eyes in pain as Bolton went ahead 2-1, IIRC. Just felt bad for the guy because he was always calm and optimistic in every post-match interview. I'd never seen Kean lose his cool once, so you just had to support him in spite of everything. Hell, they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford at least!

Ah i see, yes i think we were happy to have him on board, even when times were pretty ropey - coming off what were a couple of awful managers - Sammy Lee and Megson. We even had a half-decent run at one stage the year before last for a good 20 games or so. Then Holden broke his leg and i think we lost 6 of 8 and got relegated without him and Chungy (who is now awful) last year. Wish we'd have been like Blackburn fans now, for all the good it did them. I's hate to be Steve Keen. Considering the amount of stick he's had for a year or however long it has been he's withstood it, you have to give him that.

Liverpool, Liverpool... 0-2 to Arsenal. Podolski stepping in as the Gunners' "ramrod."

erm... excuse me gentlemen, we dont hoof. I will have you know we play long accurate passes up to the big man ...and then feed off the second-phase ball.

Too technical for you?

Okay, and just so we arent one-dimensional, we also play triangles and mix it up a little as well.

Then we let in 4 goals.

And then Carlton Cole comes on who is about a formiddable as the gentle giant in that Tom Hanks prison film - you know, the one who swallows butterflies? That's Carlton. 7 foot and 12 inches of amiable blancmange.

However you cannot argue with his record: A goal every 13 and a half matches. That's a proper striker.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha!

I've just seen RSVP's penalty on the telly. He tried one of those little dinks that make you look an absolute TOSSER when it doesn't come off. And it didn't. Tosser.

I believe the University Of Illinois Fighting Illini might be pretty good this year.

I stand corrected, Bill. Looks like Big Sam has changed his footballing philosophy. Your strike force sounds formidable. I remember Vaz Te would regularly fall over and fail to score whenever he got the chance to play. Seems to be doing better now. We should have kept Jussi and I'll always like Nolan, we missed him. Taylor was okay for us but not great.

I will have to see this penalty now - lucky for him he got the hat-trick. Southampton are doomed .Great performance and nothing to show from any of them.

Interesting. The Bolton Hammers!! ha ha. No, youre alright, Sam hasnt but I think the style will be a contentious issue all season among the fans. Yeah Nolan started slowly by his standards but by the end of the season we realised how well he'd done. Strikes a ball so well and with restrain and good technique - see that first goal he got saturday? Vaz Te has been trickier on the ball and has finished well against championship level teams - what a powerful shot when he hits it - a little like Ben Arfur yesterday. We will see how he does now he is up against better Prem defenders. We're playing far more longer ball than west ham have ever done and a lot more of a pressing game to get the ball back, but we do seem to be knocking it about a bit too. As far as doing well, this looks like early form against weaker teams. Wait till we play some better sides and it could be more like the 3-0 against swansea.

Didn't see Nolan's goal but i'm going to watch highlights later. I like Nolan a lot. And Allardyce was great for Bolton, so i'll always like him, despite his potentially dodgy side. I hope the Hammers do well this year. I think they should be mid-table comfortably, though the Swansea result shocked me. I do like Michael Laudrup though and am glad to see he has started well. I can't believe Brandan Rodgers took the Liverpool job. He was on a hiding to nothing doing that/ May as well have stayed at Swansea and been a legend for a few years, then left.

we better ask Kev how he feels about that appointment!!

Typical hammers luck - most effective aerial striker signing since David Cross and he runs fulham ragged then gets injured for an indefinite period.

lets hope we dont have to survive too many matches expecting Carlton Blancmange to fill Carroll's boots.
