Probably the most exciting cup tie i have seen for many a year.

To go 2 down in the first 5 minutes to a club 2 leagues higher. One goal a deflection the other an own goa! Get a goal back and immediately concede again from an horrendous defensive mix up.

To then go from 1-3 down to 3-3 at full time to 5-3 after extra time in front of a crowd in excess of 10,000 when your club was a basket case until recent times was an incredible achievement.

Two other things struck me ... One was that the presence of VAR would have killed the game as a spectacle as a couple of decisions would have seen a 5 minute investigation. Thank God the refs decision was sacrosanct.

The other is after the match ended i put Sky Sports on and there was no reference to the game at all. 

Finally, Scott Quig!ey was deservedly named MOM. What a great career he is having since leaving the Vale. And look who got Hartlepoo!'s winner last night ... Mark Cullen.

Strange game is footie.

I liked Cullen unfortunately fitness was his biggest hinderance but he proved a decent finisher in some games was just anonymous in most away games he played.

Great cup tie as well, Quigley is a strange one just doesn't look like a footballer sometimes yet when he puts his mind to it is clearly a half decent striker for National League/League Two level.

It was a fantastic game…. Great to see Stockport back at it… difficult night for Bolton they looked to lack physicality but it’s always difficult to judge on a single viewing.

I always remember Jim Steele scoring there as we stood on the benches behind the goal on our way to promotion… bloody hell how long ago was that?

When they went 2 down thought it was hammer time and how many would Bolton score.

Stockport fought back and actually looked the better side for most of the match.  

So chuffed for them and their fans they beat Bolton and they looked the better side.

Funny when their player took his top off in the goal celebration and a fan nabbed it.  Someone even took the corner flag as well.  🤣

Great game for the "neutral" with a great atmosphere and thrilling ending. I liked how the ref basically gave up on playing out the last couple of minutes at the end. I bet the BBC were delighted they got that game to broadcast.

Nice to see they have a stand named after Danny Begara. Noticed that they had electronic advertising boards as well. Played without Rooney who they said had been voted the player of the season for the last two leagues in which they’d played. How much must he be earning a week.? Does anyone know if Whitmore is injured because I don’t even think he was on the bench. Does anyone know if Bolton played their first team.? Quigley did really well I seem to remember him playing towards the right hand side for us, so probably JA played him out of position

Said in commentary mate that Whitfield had fractured his foot. 

Are you thinking of the right Rooney ? If you thinking of the ex Aberdeen and Salford one he is now at Solihull. 

The Stockport guy is John Rooney brother of Wayne .

Bolton were full strength apart from Doyle was injured .

He actually played under Aspin rather than Askey. He was signed in the summer of 2018 and left in Jan 2019 before Askey came in to replace Aspo.

I think the issue with Quigley at Vale was he kept saying he needed a run of games and he never got that. I've just been looking at that season and he made thirteen appearances but just two starts. He scored in one of the games he started. The rest of his appearances were lots of being introduced with 15-20 minutes left so in terms of minutes on the pitch, well, he didn't have many.

He said as much when he left - "When you think you should be playing and you’re not, it was hard to take. It was a bitter pill to swallow because I thought I was going there to play."

That's not trying to rewrite history and say he would have been a world beater. I think he's developed a lot since he was at Vale when he did look very raw, but perhaps with a run of games he may have made a bit more of an impact. He's certainly a handful now.

Darren, good morning, yes I was thinking of the wrong person. I only put the game on to see Quigley score the lib and then turned it off. My questions around BWFC playing their strongest eleven, revolve around,

1. Is their place in L1 more financially rewarding than a cup run, as they’ve had an extra game out of the tournament.

2. Even more importantly is it getting to affect us, if they recall Politic.
