Congestion Charging

Mars Musings

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...

The Fourth Estate - a Critique

Zulu raises an army of statistics against the massed enemies of Bolton Wanderers... namely the media...

I have watched the UK media gradually turn against Bolton Wanderers with fascination, and more than a little annoyance, over the last three seasons. Itís not that long ago that we were plucky little Bolton, fighting above our weight. That was annoying in itself. Iíve always wanted us to be...

I should be so lucky...

Practice makes perfect for Bobo the Clown...

Bolton Wanderers are creatures of habit. In the 1970's we specialised in losing two goal leads. In the ultimately unsuccessful 1975 season we did that about six times. We're no strangers to losing 4-3 after being three up and we have specialised in last gasp goals ... letting them in,...

So....which one are you then?

The Hog analyses the various types of Wanderers fans you can expect to bump into next time you're at The Reebok - if you're unlucky!

The first home game against Everton confirmed my worst fears. It wasnít the one dimensional performance, or losing to a smash and grab raid. No, it was the bloke next to me, henceforth known as BNM. Every now and then, he gives our players a piece of advice. It is...

Mud, Glorious Mud!

TangoDancer quick steps into the sepia tinged time of real mud... and proper boots...

Football, contrary to some public opinion, did not begin with the birth of David Beckham. To start with, he is not a northener; which may account for tinted hair, abuse of tattooing that was initially the property of home-sick servicemen, and the dress sense of a Christmas Tree. And his...

Big Sam for England?

Are the Three Lions of England going to gobble up Big Sam? mofgimmers hopes not...

Ring. Ring Ring. (click) "Hello? Is that Samuel Allardyce? This is the FA..." There's a lot of speculation about who the next England manager will be. There seems to be a short list in the press that includes Steve McLaren, Alan Curbishley, Stuart Pearce, and of course, our Sam. Sam...

Kevin Nolan 1 Spurs 0

Trotting Home

Aren't Bolton brilliant? They score goals, don't concede any, and go third in the Premiership. Which makes them brilliant! Here is YouriIsLeGod's account of the heavenly ascent...

"Nolan for England, Nolan for England" was the cry from us last night as once again 'Nobby' Nolan steered Bolton to another narrow victory. After last night Sven should have a rethink of his squad as Nolan easily outshone Jermaine Jenas and Kevin Davies was involved in both of our...

Spurs Preview

Trotting Home

YouriIsLeGod looks forward to the arrival of the Spuds. (With one eye on The Guardian and one on the isobars!)

YouriIsLeGod hopes for anything but a wet display against Tottenham... After winning our swimming competition with Zenit on Thursday at The Reebok, it's back to the Premiership on Monday to face yet another southern team in Tottenham Hotspur. No doubt Louise Taylor from The Guardian will have written her match report already...

Trotting Home

Wearing an array of flotation devices, communistworkethic and daxter15, wade out against the tide....

Captain Nolan is often blamed for the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava, his keenness to run headlong at the opposition was proved to be folly and went down in history. Last night Bolton's own Captain Nolan showed the same keenness to run headlong into the opposition. Again, his...

The Future of Football?

CrazyHorse rubs his crystal balls and comes up with a nightmare vision of tomorrow...

Picture the scene, thirty years from now. Itís August 2035. There are now only two leagues in England, Premiership Division One and Premiership Division Two. There are twenty clubs in each. Most of the teams would be unrecognisable to you or me by todayís standards. On the opening day of...
