William the White drinks from the cup that cheers, but stays sober.

The Cup is less than exciting these days, it seems. Cup fever in Bolton is now 30 minute ‘flu’, barely noticed, even by the small number afflicted, dealt with easily by a low strength soluble aspirin - much more sudden yawn than sudden death.We got more in the ground than...

William the White waxes lyrical...about a pub.

TAKE ARMS AGAINST THE SEA OF TROUBLE!Over the last six months I have seen too many defeats. They come too frequently, with too few remissions. This was another.We competed in the first half.We were dreadful in the second. Albion made use of our defensively weak right side. We came nowhere...

WTW looks optimistically ahead to easier games

The mid-June release of the Premier League fixtures gave us an unexpected jolt. It was almost as though someone was plotting against us. Probably the person who devises the Match of the Day titles that, season after season, seek to hide the fact that Bolton Wanderers play in the Premiership....

William the White gets the fireworks out for the last game of the season, but finds only damp squibs.

For the first time in more than ten years there is no end of season party among our group of fans. Everyone had a reason not to host it. Some had reasons not to go to it if it had been held. There was the lowest degree of interest in...

WTW finds pain and pity in Amsterdam

We four Bolton season ticket holders find ourselves misplaced in Amsterdam for our club’s first visit to the new Wembley. Arriving on Friday morning, far too early, we ditch the bags at the hotel on Dam square (arguably the most ugly central square of any European capital), are forbidden our...

The Bolton Bard enjoys a fun day in the sun

Bring me sunshine, in your smile...Owen Coyle in the post-match interview on GMR said ‘that’s three points nearer to Liverpool’... Don’t you just love the man? Does any manager smile more? No glass is ever half empty. No match is ever unwinnable. No substitution is ever negative. No manager is...

A night at the opera for William the White? Not after a drama in the daytime...

Breakfast is pancakes, with banana and blueberries and maple syrup. And then we walk round the Jumbles, my wife and I. We shop at Morrisons in Harwood, go home for soup - homemade butternut squash with a chilli zing, mushrooms on toast for seconds. Unsociably, I read The Guardian Sports section....

Out of violence comes peace. William the White leads the revolution against the bullies in blue.

Way back at the very start of football hooliganism, there was Everton... and it was expressed by smashing up ‘football specials’ – supporters’ trains - on the way home. And their fans used to sing ‘We’re the best train wreckers in the land...’Then, later, once that time of innocence, when...

Back to the future or foward to the past, asks William the White

Recent scientific research indicates that homo sapiens as a species, outside of Africa, have within their DNA approximately 4% that is Neanderthal in origin. Unless you’re from Stoke, where, clearly, Neanderthal DNA is being mixed with old china clay and fed to the male of the species for breakfast. And...

William The White suffers the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune at the Reebok

We played our most feared and hated rivals. They scored four goals – again. We lost – again. We competed for most of the first half and the opening of the second but never really looked like rescuing the game. Lame defending contributed to three of the goals and a...
