    Let's be honest, Bolton are done two favours in the past two weeks. We beat Liverpool when you cleverly decided to lose 5-2 so you didn't drop too much, then we drew to Arsenal so you could overtake them.

    You didn't let Blackburn get any points, well done <ok>

    How the **** can you lose against **** teams then beat Liverpool and keep a ****ing clean sheet vs Arsenal?

    Honestly I predicted a 1-4 hammering for you tonight.

    Because it took Coyle until early January to realise that 4-5-1 is the way forward when you buy attacking wingers and a hold up striker and 2 defensive midfielders.

    How was Ober Motm? <laugh> He was on for 5minutes !!! Perch, Colo or Krul were MOTM for me all very solid <ok> Also Willo was ok and but a few vital blocks in and Best was almost as bad as Shola.

    Hopefully the combination of scoring, and being starved of gametime will spur Ober on.

    Good!!! Guthrie was very good tonight as well, challenging Cabaye and Tiote for a first team slot maybe?

    Best was out of position on the wing, however, he kept on running into deadends and lost the ball.
    IMO Shola was somewhat better than Best

    I am being serious. Don't get me wrong both Best and Shola are **** but today Shola played much better than Best.

    Neither of them was an attacking threat at all but Shola won most of the stuff in the air and defended well at then end, while the only thing I can think of Best doing in the match was almost scoring an own goal twice.

    Shola won 8/11 aerial challenges, if NUFC_Stats is accurate.

    Tash it's been evident for months now that you just don't like Shola and you always slate him however he plays.

    That's not the first beautifully weighted through-ball he's produced either! ...Not that I'm suggesting he should necessarily play more, but he actually has some skills - too bad he's lost the pace he maybe once had

    Agree with tash for once on this one, shola was absolutely dreadful, his first touch is the worst I've seen in football and isnt willing to put in any effort at all. At least he actually jumped tonight though.

    Ratings:

    Krul 7
    Simpson 6
    Williamson 5
    Coloccini 7
    Santon 5
    Ben arfa 4/ obertan 6 (good goal but not on long enough for higher)
    Guthrie 6
    Raylor 5/ perch 8
    Gutierrez 6
    Shola 3
    Best 6

    MOTM perch

    Best played okay and that was the worst performance I have ever seen from Ameobi. He was absolutely shocking except for that turn on the defender. He doesn't put any effort in.

    Was that Lover's pass to Ober? <yikes> Thought it was Guthrie.

    Well, I do usually defender Lover, and I've always said he's a good passer of the ball, he's good on the ball and fair better than Shola.

    Those sort of things is what Lover can offer. He should get a game.

    Sorry to Lover, however I thought apart from that pass, he didn't do much.
