The Right Man for Blackburn

Author: warthog / Date: Wednesday 18th June 2008

Set Pieces

The inbreds up the road are dithering about the appointment of a new manager. Ever helpful, The Wanderer offers some advice.

Grim times in Dingleville. Yosser Hughes has laid down the managerial banjo and decamped to Manchester’s biggest council house. David Bentley is leading the escape committee for those who remain. The toothless many-fingered hordes at Ewood Park are in a state which varies from worry to blind panic. Fortunately, we’re...

Euro 2008: The Netherlands

Author: mummywhycantieatcrayons / Date: Monday 9th June 2008

Set Pieces

Our man in the field, Mummywhycantieatcrayons, reports from the land of Total Football...

So the European Championship is upon us, and without a St. George’s cross in sight. The ‘who will you support’ angle is just about the only the option the BBC had available to them, given that they, together with ITV, were committed to screening every single match of the tournament,...

The Transfer Window - is it all bs?

Author: Winter Hill White / Date: Thursday 5th June 2008

Set Pieces

Winter Hill White thinks so - and goes into the rumour mill for some sabotage...

We have reached the summer. As well as endless rainy days and bored children, what else can we expect? A load of football journalists with no football to journalise. So they just have to let their imagination run wild, and make up some random transfer stuff. But how random is it? Come with me,...

The Season Just Gone - Part One

Author: officer_dibble / Date: Sunday 25th May 2008

Set Pieces

Dibble's month by month, blow by blow account of a season in the life of Bolton Wanderers, and The Wanderer...

Pre Season Transfer News Already here were Gerald Cid and Jlloyd Samuel (just about) though he can claim to be Sammy Lee’s first signing. An injured Blerim Dzemaili joined the club having been signed on a pre-contract as our creative midfield answer only to go and do his cruciates. Bugger. The first money...

It's the Hope That Kills You

Author: bobo the clown / Date: Friday 16th May 2008

Warthogs Academy

But fortunately we're still alive... just. Bobo looks back in anguish at the season gone and cacks his pantaloons at the thought of the one to come.

In 'Going Postal' by Terry Pratchett, the book begins with the 'hero', Alfred Spangler, in jail, hours from execution, trying to dig out of his cell by scraping away the mortar on one of the large stones in the jail-room wall. After weeks of effort and only a short time...

Die Hard With a Vengeance

Author: Salford Trotter / Date: Monday 12th May 2008

Away Daze

The end for this season, the end for several Bolton stalwarts, and the end for Chelsea's title hopes. Salford Trotter waves all off from the platform.

Over the years Bolton/Chelsea games have had a greater significance than most, as we remember back to 1983 and the relegation decider that saw the Wanderers drop into the old fourth division whilst Chelsea escaped. In 1998 when the Whites were scrapping for survival Jody Morris condemned Bolton to a return to the then...

Party the Whole Week Long

Author: thebish / Date: Saturday 10th May 2008

Away Daze

Bolton's stars leave the disco and put aside the remaining champers to act as target practice for Chelsea. Or do they? The bish seeks the truth...

I volunteered to do this preview before the 2-0 victory against Blunderland, honestly expecting to have to prepare a piece that anticipated our imminent relegation and struggled to find some graveyard humour to soften the blow. However, Diouf into the top corner, Murphy just over the line, and the whole scenario is changed! Mathematically we...

Nail Biting as an Art Form

Author: TANGODANCER / Date: Tuesday 6th May 2008

Trotting Home

Of course we always knew that Gary Megson would be totally brilliant in the end. Here's Tango's huzzah for the pretty much signed, sealed and delivered survivalists.

Well, it was never going to be a classic Brazillian style display was it? The happy-chappies from the northeast, with benevolent old blue-chin himself at the helm, were under instruction not to roll over and throw us a lifebelt come what may. We had battled our way to two wins and a creditable draw...

Makes Ben Hur Look Like an Epic

Author: ratbert / Date: Friday 2nd May 2008

Trotting Home

The biggest game since... the last one. Ratbert hopes Sunderland are torn asunder.

Here we go. Ben Hur, Spartacus, Gladiator, Escape to Victory and Holiday on the Buses all rolled into the epic blockbuster to end epic blockbusters. Few would have thunk that little ol’ Bolton versus Little ol’ Sunderland would come to have the resonance of King Kong vs. Godzilla, but even after this all-out, no...

The Most Important Game in Our Recent History

Author: Soldier_Of_The_White_Army / Date: Wednesday 30th April 2008

Set Pieces

Soldier gets the Whites on the parade ground and gives the lads a rousing pre-battle cry.

I got to thinking this morning, just how important is the game against Sunderland next Saturday? Most people have written off the Chelsea game (though I still think we can pull off a draw), which means the game next weekend could decide our fate as a Premier League club. I started to think of the...
