  2. He resigned a short-term deal in August and it expired in September. "Joey Barton explained that he had to let Ross Wallace leave Fleetwood Town to fund the loan signing of Jimmy Dunne from Burnley on transfer deadline day. Wallace had re-signed for Town on August 10 and that short-term deal came to end on Monday. The 34-year-old midfielder, who made 38 Town appearances last season, came off the bench in four of this season’s first seven games. But when Wallace’s deal expired, Town boss Barton prioritised a central defender after captain Craig Morgan left by mutual consent. And the money saved on Wallace was used to fund the 21-year-old Dunne’s wages. Barton said: “Ross had done fantastically well for us but we have all seen with the case going on at Bury that clubs have to balance the books. “I did not have a centre- half, so in essence I had to swap Jimmy Dunne for Ross Wallace because I needed cover in that area, especially with losing Morgs. That was the decision. “Disappointed for Ross. I do still feel he has an awful lot to offer and I do feel that if we had more room in our budget I’d definitely have kept Ross on. “He was great for us last year – robust and played a load of games. “I have no doubt he will pop back up somewhere because he is a quality player. “We are disappointed to lose him as a man too because he has been fantastic around the group but you have to balance the books, that is football.” Barton explained that Morgan, also 34, had fallen behind Harry Souttar, Peter Clarke and Ash Eastham in the pecking order after an injury-hit 2018-19. Barton said: “Morgs is in a slightly different situation. He got pushed down the pecking order really by the players that came in on loan and the players we had at the club." https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/sport/football/joey-barton-sorry-ross-wallace-had-to-leave-fleetwood-town-1-9976438
  3. asteener likes his ellipses but there's a lack of poetry so idk
  4. Definitely a training ground set piece from them. Palmer is marking Gregory who runs off him, Palmer then points for someone to pick him up. Fletcher is our spare man and has a couple of looks over his right shoulder before the free kick is taken. The ball comes over and Clucas beats Hutch to the header. Batth loses Iorfa (who's off balance) and Fletcher is unaware of Gregory. Gregory should've left it to Batth who probably would've scored. It was a great save nonetheless and Palmer was in the right place to put the ball out at the end.
  5. F*ck me we made hard work of that. Name a better duo than Wednesday and giving free kicks away in dangerous areas.
  6. A crap game but we're getting the job done. I think Fox had a good half, he's put some good crosses in.
  7. 1984/85 season. 3 wins (against us, man utd and arsenal), 8 draws and 31 losses! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984–85_Stoke_City_F.C._season
  8. Can see Forestieri being brought on in the second half and then starting against Leeds.
  9. To the tune of "Who's that team they call...the rangers, United, Arsenal" etc. Who's that running down the left wing Who's that running with the ball And we signed him on a free And I think we all agree Kadeem will score a goal
  10. Bolton are bottom of the table and haven't won all season. Five losses and one draw ffs. edit: The draw was last season. Played five this season and lost all of them.
  11. That was down to Jos' methods more than anything else. I'd like to see Dawson given a chance with a settled and experienced defence in front of him.
  12. Notts County, Mansfield Town, Reading, Leicester, Real Madrid.
