Re: What are you watching tonight?

On the Buses. Maybe i'm in a minority but I think this is genuinely amusing. You could get away with an awful lot of slapstick and broad humour in the early 1970s and even today it's full of gems and standout moments. Why ITV feel the need to include it at 1.30 on a Sunday morning is a mystery, but ...

Re: Turning the tide? Orwell adrift? Ipswich (A) 16/9/17 3pm

I had the Channel 5 "highlights" show on earlier, and kept waiting for coverage from today but they didn't show it. With some level of frustration, put the hour repeat on and still missed it. :conf: Fair enough I didn't catch every minute of each broadcast (Colin Murray is one annoying 'individual' ...

Re: Rooney Quits Internationals

Jim Greaves is the greatest English goalscorer this country has seen - so what if Rooney has more international goals, he's so far behind the former for awareness, predatory instinct and finishing, it's almost blasphemy to have them in the same sentence. As others have mentioned, had one standout c...

Re: The Blades to stick the knife in? Bolton v Sheffield Utd 12/9/17.

I was looking through the pages, taking things in and ideally thought our weekends game would be up, but they haven't done the preview yet. Point being I didn't realise the club was bottom of the league when looking earlier tonight. Fair enough you did what was all important and got back at the firs...

Re: "It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves" Bolton vs Posh 30th April

Had to look at the League One table to see where Bolton were. Realised you were in or around the automatic promotion places but just wanted confirmation. Yeah looks like you'll only need a point now for an instant return to the Championship and only Peterborough at home standing in the way, fair eno...

Re: What are you watching tonight?

The Long Good Friday. This may seem a premature viewing but it's so good any time of the year is permitted. This was the film that first brought Bob Hoskins to public attention, and a who's who of future names. The soundtrack is horribly dated and the storyline isn't explained until well into the fi...

Re: What's the Point of Scottish Football?

Was once in favour of the two Old Firm clubs joining the English league but have since had a rethink. For one thing it'll never happen, and furthermore it would just look so out of place I could never really get used to it. Yes it may provide the other teams up there with a far better chance of winn...

Re: What are you watching tonight?

Green Street is on now. As far as football hooligan film experiences go it's OK in parts but can't compete with titles such as ID and The Firm. Better than Football Factory as the leading characters are more tolerable, and no Danny Dire in sight. At times it's unintentionally hilarious such as when ...

Re: The other Dons.....Oxford away Tues 21-03-17...7.45

Tonight is the first time I have looked at the League One table all season (although should be playing closer attention as we may well be in it from August : - / ) and was interested to see how Bolton were doing down there after the relegation last year. Looks like you'll be making it back at first ...

Re: A New Frontier

I did think about having a vote, but decided it would be perhaps disrespectful as a follower of another team to get involved, or not the recommended course of action. Just wanted to say, hope you can return as soon as possible. Bolton I think are one of the founder members of the football league, ha...

Re: The Burnden Park Disaster - Remembering the 33

Take this opportunity to give a honourable mention to the people who lost their lives in this tragedy . Can't imagine the extent of the trauma families will have suffered. Read there was a minutes silence dedicated to the lives lost at last nights game although there has been no mention of it on ou...

Re: Ipswich Town @ The Macron - Tues 8 March 20:00

Have since watched highlights of the game and the penalty incident has split opinion on our own boards. Most are honest enough to admit Bolton deserved at least a point and even being two goals ahead, we were far from the better team. Yes the loss of points after six minutes of added time hurt but o...

Town fan who will visit every now and again

Felt it was only right to introduce myself. Yes I'm a supporter of another club but registered with a number of different club sides and often find some good conversation. As said yesterday we've had some memorable games with Bolton over the years and hope you can find room to accommodate another na...

Re: Ipswich Town @ The Macron - Tues 8 March 20:00

Sorry to intrude but Ipswich fan here of many years. Followed tonights action and really, despite how I feel personally, a point was probably as much as we deserved and would have been very unfair on yourselves if we had taken the win. How did you get back into it ? Many on our forums still can't un...
