Neil Lennon: From Buzzwords To The Gutter.

Author: Jugs / Date: Thursday 21st January 2016

Set Pieces

Jugs, waxes not lyrical on managerial failings.

After his first game in charge away at Birmingham City, Neil Lennon spoke about “game management,” and how this was something we needed to improve on. I was impressed. At last it seemed like we had a manager who spoke intelligently about football, as opposed to a manager who shamelessly...

Enoch relates a tale of faith and hope.....

With our beloved club in turmoil and the future far from certain, this tale of my local club may just give a glimmer of hope.Over the Christmas period of 2007, one of the most bizarre stories from the game of football broke. The once proud club of Gravesend & Northfleet,...

What the Dickens....?

Not a sound off or personal view, just a few relevant facts in answer to the thread question: What sort of football club can a town like Bolton support ?

Going off the title of the thread, "What sort of a football club can Bolton support?, the answer has to be, “not a high-flying top-notch one, anymore” - and the reason is very simple. Comparing Bolton Wanderers past and the Burnden Park days ( amazing as it now seems the...

Season of the Which

Trotting Home

It's new season time again and a hope that Neil Lennon turns out to be a wizard.

No, not a spelling error, not hunting witches, but a topic to get some views on what might really happen based on the pre-season being over and the new challenge being but a week away. In other words, “which” Bolton will Neil Lennon pull out of the hat this time?...

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...

Freedman's Finest Fellas..

Author: Dave Sutton's barnet / Date: Monday 29th September 2014

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...

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,...
