From the comfort of the executive box, Mar peers out over the great unwashed at Bolton's brave, but pointless, battle against Chelsea.

Bolton's seasonal struggles continued today as the Whites succumbed to yet another defeat, this time at the hands of Chelsea. While looking quite comfortable for long periods of the game there was yet another defensive lapse in store to leave Bolton hanging dangerously at the wrong end of the table....

A look back by Mar at how Bolton made heavy weather of the crisp-loving East Midlanders in the Fizzy Beer Cup...

The Carling Cup comes round again, this time welcoming ex-Premier League outfit Leicester City to the Reebok. Leicester were without Iain Hume, who Bolton fans will remember from his brace against us in the FA Cup a few years ago with Tranmere. Bolton on the other hand were without Henrik...

For his final musing, Mar ponders taking the Vicks' vapour rub to the congested fixture list...

I remember thinking back in our first season in the Premiership that managers shouldn't complain about the fixture list being changed so much. We had the likes of Alex Ferguson, Claudio Ranieri and Arsene Wenger complaining bitterly that their team was being affected by playing games on Sunday, with a...

Mar has a celebration of the site's history to shout about...

It’s been that time when TW posters mark the occasion of TheWanderer.co.uk's first birthday and in doing so come to accept that this is no longer a fledgling site but an established online forum with fanbase support and regular articles. Over a year ago a group of posters set out...

Part Two of our Jay Jay discussion sees Mar suggest an identity crisis being behind our wayward Nigerian's current form...

Jay Jay Okocha. The best thing to grace our team since Michael Ricketts and his great half-season. Unfortunately, Jay Jay has managed little better, getting just one season of top drawer performances under his belt. When Okocha came to Bolton, we all knew his past, the inconsistency that led him...

Mar analyses the not-so-healthy relationship between football and music...

Music is great isn't it? Better even than milk, and from what's said on adverts that's some achievement. Anyway. Music. It brings people together and as far as I'm concerned is by far the best thing to go with football since coffee on a freezing terrace. Over the years we've...

Mar bemoans the lack of fire power, and suggests the addition of some Mexican spice...

Four games gone, European candidates well and truly run across the park and 7 points to show for it. The first few games didn't make pretty reading from the amount of chances that we're failing to convert and it didn't make us feel any better that the only positives we...

Our resident expert on everything, Mar, casts his pundit's eye over the runners and riders in this season's Premiership stakes...

Arsenal - Having managed to retain the vast majority of the squad including veteran Dennis Bergkamp, manager Arsene Wenger is without the influencial captain Patrick Vieira since his summer move to Juventus, which means that this team could go either way. They'll be heavily affected in the midfield as Gilberto...

Mar reports on how the sun of Malaga came to the Reebok - only for the Spaniards to be put behind a cloud...

Match Report: Bolton 2:1 Malaga Salva 15 Speed 38 Pedersen 87 Bolton started the better side pressing Malaga and creating the opening goal through a header by Diouf. Unfortunately though the goal was ruled out by the referee for a foul in the box. Seemed a little harsh at the...

As the new season looms, Mar surveys our squad and looks forward with confidence. Er, not exactly...

We're embarking on Europe next season and so far we've brought in Diouf, Walker and Al-Habsi, with the latter joining us in December. From the outset, not exactly the signings we'll be needing to last 38 games in the premiership, let alone embark on an extra set of games in...
