A great finish to a great season at Kenilworth Road.

Fine performances in particular from McGeehan, Robinson (jeez, that boy puts some work in!), Cullen and Griffiths.

Report madhatter July 18, 2014 10:56 PM BST
i honestly see us winning this division as well

yes - gray has gone but we had allowed for that by signing four new young strikers, all of which are potentially good potentially good. It only needs one of them to come to fruition to go with Benson/Cullen/Wall and we are set.
Having Smith, Lawless and Guttridge back fit is a huge bonus to an already very talented midfield.

Managed to get 30 notes on at 11.0 but am currently putting all my spare cash onto Germany to win Euro 2016 which seems pretty much a foregone conclusion to me - even without Lahm.

Hi mad,

Hope all is well with you.

Drury a very good signing, Gray a big loss but plenty of chances for others, maybe Cullen can step up.

Not put a bet on as yet, expecting a slow start as per last year and hope for a bigger price.

Hi barstool - went again tonight...good to go while my lad is at home from Uni for the summer.

Bury were very good and we were fortunate to get a point.
I think we are a good team but they looked a bit better.

Having said that, I feel that we didn't field the right team.

Back 5 was fine and McNulty and especially Griffiths were our best players.
Felt Robbo was overwhelmed in the holding central midfield role and really needed Ruddock (or a fit Jonathan Smith) in there alongside him from the start to give us a bit more bite, with Howells left and either Rooney or Drury right (in the absence of Lawless).
Guttridge was non-existent, most unusual for him. and I feel that we could have swapped him with Ruddock at half time and let Ruddock play just in front of Robbo.
Thought that to put our 'Yaya Toure' at right wing back as we did was a bit of a waste.
However, we equalised, he scored and we had the best of the last 15 minutes so I guess I can't question John Still's tactics too much!Grin

I don't see Bury losing many games this season and they look a good inclusion for any acca's that you might be tempted into at weekends.

I bet us at 11 at start and then again at 38 after game 6.

Will hopefully win next two games (away to Exeter - although they have improved enormously after only taking 2pts from their first 4 games) then home to Tranmere.
Should then be down to about 4.4/4.5 so I will probably trade out as we have a tricky set of matches in the remaining six weeks up to Xmas.

However, I have also had a saver on Bury to be promoted....they are the best team that I've seen us play so far this could let the Luton bet run.
