There wasn’t that much surprise when tonight’s scheduled match at home to Doncaster was called off yesterday.
A bunch of kids being asked to play two games a week for three weeks on the bounce is simply too much, especially when there is little scope to rotate the squad.
It seemed that Wanderers acted unilaterally to call the game off, the EFL complaining that they should have been notified, though they would have probably said no.
There is an element of the league wanting to have their cake and eat it here. They want the game to go ahead, but at the same time it appears they are unwilling to accept new players being registered. Josh Earl, James Weir and Harry Brockbank were all accepted ahead of the Wycombe game, so why can’t Jack Hobbs be brought in now for example? As ever, there seems little consistency.
Meanwhile, you-know-who is to show up once again outside the Nat Lofthouse statue at 7pm, as much as he’s largely not wanted. some people will turn up, basically making him a Pied Piper of idiots.
Meanwhile, Bolton Wanderers continues to suffer.
