Away Daze

Full marks to Bolton fans. Six out of ten for the team.

“We. Are. Staying up, I said, We are staying up” Bolton supporters were in defiant and extremely vocal mood as Gary Megson’s men came away from White Hart Lane with a scarcely deserved point.  The ginger genius sought to retain his unpopularity by starting with Grzegorz Rasiak as the lone striker,...

Boiled or Fried?

Away Daze

Thebish almost makes a hash of cooking up the Spurs preview. Who's for a bag of chips?

The Spuds came to the Reebok back in September 2007. They were managed by their very own Mr Potato Head back then and we were managed by a stunted chipstick – it seems like another age. Back then our team-sheet boasted the names of Gerald Cid and Abdoulaye Meite in...

Boro Match Report

Author: Athers / Date: Sunday 20th April 2008

Away Daze

Athers takes off the gas mask and reveals a big grin hiding behind it.

Free coach travel helped Wanderers to take a good following to the Sewerside, certainly many more than saw the whites capitulate 5-1 last season.  As the white army bounced in the concourse with an hour 'til kick off there was something special in the air, not just the stench of...

A Tees-ing Encounter

Author: TANGODANCER / Date: Friday 18th April 2008

Away Daze

Braving the smog, Tangodancer looks ahead to a potentially toxic trip to Teeside.

There are two Middleboro’s. One is in the Appalachian Mountains of sunny Kentucky, (although it’s a crater), the other hidden amidst the toxic clouds of ICI’s best products up’t north-east of England. Guess which one we get to visit this week ? Yes folks, it’s pollution-suits on, gas masks at the ready and all...

Like Ipswich for Bolton

Bobo's Big Top

Remember Ipswich Town? No, not THAT play-off match, the ill-fated 2001-02 campaign that saw the Tractor Boys both in Europe and fighting relegation. Heed HRG's warnings!

Back in 2000/01 season Ipswich Town finished fifth in the Premier League and earned themselves a UEFA Cup slot. The following year they were relegated to the Championship and haven’t been seen since. If we go down this season it is inevitable that our prolonged interest in the UEFA Cup will be cited. Dioufy...

The Boo-Hoo Boys are Back

Author: warthog / Date: Friday 11th April 2008

Trotting Home

West Ham are the visitors, and thoughts go back to a game that had them crying. They haven't stopped yet.

That Jay Jay Okocha goal.  Ian Pearce sent off.  Rufus Brevett threatening a ball boy.  A tearful Joe Cole, punching a hole in the tunnel and a lot of not so ‘appy ‘ammers. “I had britneys in me mince pies, me widow twanky was bobba fett,” recalled one of them. Translation:...

Oh, to be at Aintree

Author: perfan / Date: Monday 7th April 2008

Away Daze

It's Grand National Day. Bolton don't so much fall at the first fence, as lie down in front of it.

Firstly, an apology. It doesn't get any better second time around. You weren't having a nightmare. It really happened. Saturday was probably the biggest waste of money and waste of a day I've ever experienced. Even worse than Wembley 1999. Many of the 500 or so Bolton fans present left...

Faith, Hope and Charity

Author: Bruce Rioja / Date: Thursday 3rd April 2008

Away Daze

Not three of Bruce Rioja's favourite lady friends, but his feelings on a trip to Brum. But minds will also be on Wigan, which is never nice...

Six games to go and four points adrift. Can’t think why. We play Man City at home: nowt apiece. Advertisement: Today the Bolton Wanderers attack was brought to you courtesy of Banjo’s Cow’s Arse flavoured crisps. One week later and our nearest relegation rivals, the Brummie blues, play the same lot...

I Could Have Been a Pro

Author: bobo the clown / Date: Wednesday 2nd April 2008

Warthogs Academy

Take a trip back to the days of jumpers for goalposts, and the sight of a young bobo the clown, in oversized shoes with a red nose and comedy flower, sweeping the ball down the wing...

I've always believed that only three things held me back in my desire to be a professional footballer - a relatively slight build as a youngster, an ankle injury which always gave me a weakness and, perhaps most tellingly, an almost complete lack of talent. Oh, I could run around... all day if needs...

The Sound of Nails in a Coffin

Author: screech powers / Date: Tuesday 1st April 2008

Trotting Home

It's enough to make one screech. In fact, Screech Powers did exactly that in the biggest capitulation this side of Devon Loch.

There is a thing in football that will bring you to your knees and eat you from the inside out quicker than a stint in an MRSA ridden hospital. That is hope; hope is a belief, something to cling onto, a reluctant expectation, and something prior to this game that I had little of....
