I’m not going to be overly negative about last night’s display. We have been poor away from home for a very long time, and despite the result against Bolton, there were some positive signs that we are improving on the road.

The Trotters went joint top by getting the three points, and we were in command for a fair amount of the game. Still, it all comes down to the result at the end of the day. And it’s familiar failings that are letting us down.

After the game, blogger Daniel Ivery tweeted a short, succinct description of what he expects this season to be for the Blues:

Fans responded with a variety of reactions:

Garry Monk can only work with the tools with which he has been given, and I think it’s fair to assume there would have been a significant overhaul of the squad if we hadn’t fallen foul of the EFL’s FFP regulations.

As it is, we have to make do with what we have. Personally, I think our home form will help us avoid another year flirting with relegation, but we will have to wait and see.
