Two days before our crunch match with the Tykes and all the signs point to a Barnsley home win, but I guess we've got to hope that somehow we'll get a result.
First the bad news starting with form:
In the last 5 games both teams have conceded 8 goals but Barnsley have been better in front of goal scoring 6 compared to our two which resulted in 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses for them whilst we won 1 and lost 4 in a row.
Last home game we surrendered to Millwall whilst they beat Sheffield United. 
Barnsley have a game in hand and a much superior GD mainly due to their ability to score goals, although their defence is only marginally less leaky than ours.

The good news is that we are now so desperate for a win, Parky and the team know that they will have to pull something special out of the hat. 

It's shit or bust for Parky so I'm going for a draw - although that probably won't be enough.

KP please change your avatar. That knob once came into a restaurant I used to own, loudly announced his presence to the customers and demanded to inspect the kitchens. Perhaps one of the most obnoxious little shits I ever met. We used to get a lot of famous people and in general the more famous they were, the less of a show they made and the more respectful to the staff they were e.g. Michael Palin who was an absolute gentleman. That dickhead was abusive to the waitresses and I really can't stand the sight of him so please change it.

There's only one way to go in this match - attack.

Negative tactics have got us nowhere of late and it's time to go out and actually try and win a match by scoring more goals than Barnsley.

Alnwick

Little - Burke - Wheater - Taylor

Morais - Pratley - Henry - Robinson

Le Fondre - Ameobi

Far from perfect, but at least there's a bit of pace in there.

If we go into this match playing for a 0-0 that will be the end of supporting BWFC for me this season, and until Parky is shown the door.

Away win. Just. Parky always seems to pull us from the brink

We’ll go 1 up in the 12th minute through Le Fondre. Then subsequently miss a penalty in the 19th minute. 

They’ll equalise in the 73rd Min and David Wheater will pop up in the 91st minute with a bullet header from a corner.

Thank you for dropping Beevers who has no gas left in the tank.

There's a chance Parky might pick Beevers to mark Kiefer Moore who is 6 foot 5 and bullies defences a la Madine. They are a young side compared to us and on one forum the Barnsley fans were questioning their stamina - citing that endurance sports such as Tour de France etc are dominated by over 25's. Most predict a win for Barnsley, but the subtext is that they are as worried as we are.

Looking at the highlights of the Ipswich game,Barnsley created some decent chances. I'm seriously worried.

Ref watch: Jones to take charge of Barnsley v Wanderers

Michael Jones is set to take charge of Wanderers’ Sky Bet Championship trip to Barnsley on Saturday.

The Chester-based official, who became a Football League referee in 1997, will be overseeing his first Whites fixture of the season.

He has presided over 23 matches so far this campaign, brandishing 92 yellow cards and three red cards.

Matthew Wilkes and Nick Hopton will run the line, while Jeremy Simpson is the fourth official.

Then get us Messi for 4 games please (on a free naturally).  Not sure even that would help us out enough.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Barnsley v Bolton Wanderers

As Wanderers prepare to make the trip to Barnsley on Saturday afternoon in a key clash at the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the match.

1. Six-pointer

Phil Parkinson’s men will be keen to end a recent rough patch of form and put some daylight between them and the Sky Bet Championship bottom three at Oakwell on Saturday.

Only two points and one place separate Wanderers and their opponents - although the Reds hold a game in hand – emphasising just how tight it is at the bottom of the table.

Bolton could potentially move two places clear of the relegation zone with victory in South Yorkshire and leapfrog Birmingham City in the process, should Blues fail to pick up a win over table-topping Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Sunday.

“There’s going to be a cup tie atmosphere and we need to be ready to play with real passion and commitment, but with a cool head as well,” said Parkinson at his pre-match press conference.

“As the old saying goes, ‘fire in the belly and ice running through the veins’. That’s what it’s got to be like for us out on the pitch.”

2. Head-to-head

The Trotters boast an impressive head-to-head record against Barnsley – they’re undefeated in their last 11 meetings (W6, D5) with their last loss coming in a 1998 FA Cup tie at Oakwell.

Earlier in the season, the Whites ran out comfortable 3-1 winners at Macron Stadium thanks to a Gary Madine brace and a second-half strike from Mark Little.

Wanderers will be keen to ensure their recent fortunes against the Tykes continue come 3pm on Saturday afternoon.

3. League double?

Three points at the weekend would see Wanderers secure a league double over Barnsley and would be Bolton’s first league double of the campaign.

Having already defeated the Tykes once this season, back in December, the Trotters will be hoping it's a case of same again when they take to the field on Saturday.

4. Yorkshire travels

Bolton have enjoyed success on their Yorkshire travels this season, picking up four wins out of the eight games played.

The team have fared best against Sheffield Wednesday, taking four points off the Hillsborough outfit in the league and beating them in the EFL Cup.

The Whites also saw off Sheffield United, 0-1, at Bramall Lane in late December, with Gary Madine scoring the all-important goal on that day.

And, as mentioned above, the final and fourth victory came over Barnsley at Macron Stadium in early December.

Can Wanderers extend it to five Yorkshire wins out of nine this weekend?

5. Pay on the day

Wanderers will be spurred on at Oakwell by over 2,000 travelling Whites!

Tickets remain on sale for the match and will be available on the day at Oakwell from the North Stand turnstiles on a cash-only basis.

Adult, Over-65 and Under-22 price bands will increase by £2 on the day, but no Under-17s or Under-12s tickets will be available and must be purchased in advance of the fixture.

Any supporters who have organised for their tickets to be sent to Barnsley for collection or have their tickets duplicated, these will be left at the main reception situated next to the South Stand Ticket Office.

Prices are as follows:

General Prices (Pay On The Day)

Adults - £30 (£32)
Over-65s - £22 (£24)
Under-22s - £22 (£24)
*Under-17s - £10 (N/A)
*Under-12s - £5 (N/A)

Be loud, be proud and back the boys!

Another Saturday, another sickening sense of dread, which can only be relieved by a great outcome at 5pm. 

When was the last time we had a game wrapped up by half-time, so that we could relax and enjoy a game fully?

 Mind you, I wouldn't feel at ease even if we had a two-goal lead going into the final 5 minutes....

It would also make a change to see some variety in our approach play, sensible team selection that mixed pace with muscle, wise use of subs, no ridiculous, risky challenges leading to bookings, sendings-off, penalties or free kicks within shooting range.
Equally good to finally witness a worthwhile referee.....their performances have been as poor as ours

Am I right in thinking that we could do with Fulham beating Brentford today on the basis that if Fulham don't win, Wolves will be champions by 5 o'clock and any celebration may distract from their game against Birmingham tomorrow? Possibly not, as I'm sure Wolves shouldn't require any incentive against their local rivals, but you never know.

Not over impressed with the subs bench. There's not much talent there.

Predictable selection from Parky, going for "experience" in a crunch game.
