Bury v Blackburn Rovers

Post by the growlery » Sat Nov 18, 2017 3:02 pm

Something unique at Gigg Lane today, Rovers' phenomenal away support means they have been allocated both ends of the ground.
And Nuttall starts.

I'm going to have to start taking time out of the week to make sure things don't go wrong with these polls, this is a disastrous precedent we are setting here.

This 4-2-3-1 seems to be working well... Nuttall needs a goal to keep his streak alive

So it seems Nuttall isn't as good of a lone striker as he is when paired up. His hold up play is okay, he is winning some in the air, okay on the ball. If I have to choose a lone striker, it's Danny Graham. The one thing Nuttall has right now is speed and athleticism, if he can develop better technique I believe he will be just as good, if not better than Danny Graham.

However, Antonnsson in the left wing role is just killing some defense this year. This is the second memorable occasion where he has scored multiple goals from that spot and just looked a class above everyone else.

I see the call from the Bury chairman to his players has made a big difference. Note to oneself. Please look at who you are playing next before calling for greater endeavour. :footinmouth: Anyway it is only Tony Mowbray who concerns himself too much as regards the opposition. The guy would cross the road if he were walking down a path and came across a banana skin. Bury are bottom of the league and just been thumped three nil at home to a non league club. They are looking for a new manager too. Too right Rovers should be two up at half time. It should be a win by at least four after the second half. I dont ask for much but when a team are down and out kick em where it hurts. A perfect opportunity to improve the goal difference.

Can't go wrong with a 3-0 win against bottom of the league. Was expecting a squeaky bum 1-0 win, but 3-0 will definitely do. Hopefully Nuttall gets another crack at starting, he didn't do poor but wasn't outstanding, and would like to give him a consistent run on these matches.

Very enjoyable afternoon yesterday. First trip to Gigg Lane and I thought it was a nice little ground. I think having 2 seperate stands actually had an impact on the generation of an atmosphere as there was a lack of cohesion, but still a great level of noise.

2 stand out players for me yesterday were Dack and Smallwood. Dack is really starting to look like the £1 million player we signed. Comfortable on the ball, 2 great assists and an excellent goal to top it off. Smallwood was winning everything and midfield and keeps it simple with his distribution. Not technically gifted but a real grafter, which is what you need at this level.

Tough game coming up on Tuesday but one we need to be looking at winning; 1) to try and open up a gap below us 2) to try and close the gap on the top 2

Come on you blues!

Attendance: 7,159 (3,606 away).

Which means we took more fans than the home team had! (Bury had 3553) :o

Looking at the top 10 teams in the table, it looks a pretty good day for us:

Shrewsbury won 2-1 Against Rotherham - good result for us in that it slows Rotherham down
Wigan lost 1-2 to Bradford - Good result for us which keeps us in the race for an automatic place.
Bradford won 1-2 against Wigan - Again, good result for us which keeps us in the race for an automatic place.
Scunthorpe won 3-0 against Northampton - Poor, if expected, result for us.
Charlton drew 2-2 against MK Dons - Good result for us
Blackburn won 3-0 against Bury - The BEST result for us. :hyper:
Oxford Utd won 0-4 against Plymouth - poor result for us, keeps it tight.
Rotherham lost 2-1 against Shrewsbury - Good result for us
Fleetwood Drew 0-0 with Dongcaster - I spelt Doncaster wrong. Guffaw!
Portsmouth won 1-0 against Southend - Keeps Portsmouth in it.

Good summary, Gibbon.

Oxford could be problematic; in the championship, I did not expect us to win these games against teams right next to us on the table. However, with the squad presently playing well & relatively healthy, I feel that we have a really good chance to pick up all three points and boost further up the table.
