5 Things We Learned: Bolton Wanderers v Sheffield Wednesday

New, comments

Anna is an eager student when it comes to her beloved Bolton Wanderers. Here she shares with us 5 things (more or less) she learned on Saturday.

1. We're still ahem, improving.

It's safe to stay that, despite winning a match, we've still got a long way to go. Opportunities still go by without being taken advantage of when we attack, and our defense, while improved, could always get better. We could always get better, and here's hoping we will. Dougie Freedman can seem a little lost for direction at times, but I have every bit of faith in him to get us to where we need to be.  And where we need to be, at least for now, is mid-table.  A late season playoff push (like last season) would be nice, but we need to get better step-by-step.

2. We can apparently score.

I mean, did you see that? We scored twice! (Shhh, I know one was for the other team, but still.) An impressive goal by Jermaine Beckford gave us the lead, and an even more impressive goal by Alex Baptiste tied the match. Baptiste has been quite the goal scorer so far this season. But still, it was all pretty impressive. If our defense and our new goalkeeper can keep the opponents' goals down to a minimum, and we continue to improve in scoring, things could look up.

3. Okay no wait we're not very good.

I can't lie to you guys, I really can't.  I'm an honest person.

4. Like, at all.

(It's super bad. I'm starting to lose hope.)

5. It's gonna be a loooooong season.

Ready for the best time of your life? Yeah, me neither.
