A short summary of men at the front from then to now.

The Lion , the Wit and the Wardrobe.  A jump from then to now, admittedly missing of a great many good, even great, Bolton front men; but most fans know them anyway. How we got from then to now is the main theme. The Lion…… A journey of street lamps and playing...

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...

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?...

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...

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...

Football was once cheap and cheerful, how it's changed...

It’s an undeniable fact that time marches ceaselessly on and we can’t go backwards or reverse anything. Burnden Park is sixteen years in the past and my own match watching days are mainly behind me. Time, expense and age are my excuses for spending match days playing Little Sir Echo...

Shiver ye not, get a radio...

Back in the dark ages, before the advent of snowflake, black and white TV, a group of us kids sat in class around a scratchy radio that one of the teachers had brought in, and listened in awe as England played United States in our first World Cup from far...

Poking a stick through the bars of the Millwall cage

Looking downwards from a lofty eighteenth spot, we can just glimpse Millwall way below in twenty-second place. Well, actually just three points below us and we have another "can’t afford to lose" mission on our hands. David N’Gog has had a hamstring tweak (to accompany his bad back) and Alonso...
