Reading the landscape

Away Daze

Having read too much Ian Sinclair, Dave Sutton's Barnet takes in the psychogeography of the Madejski Stadium

  Having parked on a council estate between a kebab van and a discarded supermarket trolley, I hope the vista will improve. A crisp clean December day, fur hat on, down into the valley of the Royals.TW denizen Prufrock noted before the game that the MadStad – named after a shameless...

A story of a story.

Early One Morning.  The story of a Bolton hero:. This is actually the relating of three stories, told in a play currently at Bolton’s Octagon Theatre. No, they are not about football (The author has already done that with his “And Did Those Feet”, again a Bolton related tale )  but...

Freedman's Finest Fellas..

D.S.B runs the rule over the best of the worst.

  In just under two years at Bolton, Dougie Freedman has presided over a right old player re-shuffle. Through choice or necessity, the Scot has seen the back of dozens of players – and welcomed a fair few in too. Of those he has brought to the club, some have been rather...

On the road to Great Lever

Reasons to be fearful 1,2,3........

I was walking the road to Great Lever down Farnworth Dell. My mind was clear and full of hope. I stopped to rest beside a pile of fly-tipped domestic throw-outs and thought of football and the coming season. Suddenly, a great and bright light appeared and lit up the wet...

I'll do it My Way

or High Hopes? ......

I once worked with Frank Sinatra…..His mission in life was to do it his way and ignore all else or everyone in proving himself right. The catalogue of his cock-ups is too long to list, but it culminated in collecting the money for a Grand National sweepstake and instead of...

A history of Bolton Wanderers

Trotting Through Times Past..1280-1888

Origins of Football What did the Romans ever do for us? Well apart from sanitation, medicine, education, viniculture, public order, irrigation, and roads it certainly wasn’t the introduction of the beautiful game. The Roman Empire never had the benefit of a game of football. Nobody actually knows when football started, but...

Fords or Ferraris?

It's the way forwards......I think..

In a bid to return the beautiful game to its former glory, the town of Bolton has devised a cunning plan to do so that will outdo any Blackadder  scenario by its very simplicity. Effectively, the town council will take over the running of the club and the Reebok stadium,...

Where does the truth lie?

"Veritas Vos Liberabit". The truth shall set you free, is the claim. So what is the truth in the management debate that’s been surrounding the Whites for too long now? Where does the fault really lie?   Come April  it will be seven years since Sam Allardyce left Bolton. Since that time, Sammy...

Q.P.R. ....We're domed.....

Away Daze

A look-forward to a predicted thrashing......

So, our next away trip in is the Shepherds Bush and QPR. Having conceded seven at Reading and five at Leicester, most will go to this game asking the question of how many rather than will QPR score. On top of that, factor in a QPR defence who have been brilliant this season...

Away Daze

A Dan's eye view of a Madejski occasion.

After home draws against Middlesbrough and Notts Forest, as well as a cup victory against Blackpool, We now face an away trip to Reading. The Royals have been in very poor form of late having picked up only 4 points from their last 6 games and despite the ten points and ten...
