Tweeted 30 minutes ago by Alan Nixon. Hopefully someone who knows his stuff.
Bolton. Hear Football Ventures have an experienced football figure in their takeover team. First jobs will include manager’s future.

Re: The next manager

Personally, I think we have to get rid of him now. My 10 year old son no longer wants to go watching Bolton after a few disastrous games in the last two seasons. Getting thumped and recording no shots on target in some games was not much fun. I am still hoping if we start afresh we may not lose an e...

I said it before we got Lennon and I'm saying it again - Steve Evans. A proper character who knows how to get promoted, and who plays attacking football. The fans would love him.

Evans took over at Gillingham on 1st June. He's out of the running for now.

Reports of David Lee being given the job by Football Ventures. Did wonder if his Wanderer podcast appearance was strategic. Thoughts? Where did you hear this, Branagan? I can't find anything.

Re: Administration and recovery

Really good news. They have seemed the most sensible group all the way through this ridiculousness. Michael James' involvement is really good news. There aren't going to be loaded so we will need to make shrewd decisions on the player/management front, but as long as they provide a period of stabil...

Summat else for you to watch - Last Breath. It's on Netflix amongst other stuff.

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

According to Football Insider (Who?), Huddersfield Town, Wigan Athletic and Charlton Athletic have set their sights on signing Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Ben Alnwick. So both Matthews and Alnwick could be off this summer. On frees? https://www.footballinsider247.com/exclusive-huddersfield-wigan-cha...

Leyton Orient manager Justin Edinburgh has died aged 49 after suffering a cardiac arrest. No age especially for someone who has looked after himself most of his life.
