Will be interesting to see if they do play games behind closed doors whether we can tell the difference :P

This season, next season, who knows. Despite having lived within a mile of it for the past 8 years I still haven't been since the our 2008 I think. The memory of all the food they had left being a broccoli pie still hasn't left me

We've just bought a flat that looks out directly at the Emirates, 400m across the train tracks. Not sure it's even double glazed :)
Jealous! Come to a game next season Pru!

Under 21's league game wasn't it? Must be nearly 10 years ago.

Nope I wasn't at that (thanks for the invite :roll: )

:D I don't think we've ever met (this is where embarrass me by saying I was absolutely leathered at x game a couple of years ago)!

Though this gives me an idea...

:D your best mate Verbal didn’t invite you either!

My memory is not what it used to be now I’m pushing 40 but I’ve been to a fair few London Bolton games over the years so I’m sure we must have. I can’t remember either though so it clearly wasn’t a momentous event if we did! Next season?! If we are ever allowed back to football! :cry: And if you ever do fancy watching your local team...

In the UK, a former English Football Association chief executive has warned that clubs could face “insolvency” amid the pandemic.

Former English Football Association chief executive Mark Palios has warned the cost of the coronavirus to lower-league clubs could be even larger than the £200m forecast by officials.

Rick Parry, the chairman of the English Football League, which governs the three divisions below the Premier League, estimated the cost of lockdown earlier this month.

But Palios, the chairman of third-tier Tranmere, believes the financial damage could be worse.

Palios told Sky News:

Whilst you may look at the ‘hole’ which has been articulated as £200m to September – I think it’s bigger than that.

There is a real financial maelstrom coming towards the league at this point in time.

I personally believe we haven’t seen the worst of it yet, and during the course of the summer you’ll see a lot more financial stress on the clubs as we move onwards and continue to pay wages.

I think what you’ll see is a lot of clubs will stumble down the road to insolvency.

Teams in third-division League One have still to agree on how to end their season, with Palios – whose club sit in the relegation zone – calling for relegation to be scrapped.

“We don’t want to have a decision foisted upon us that is going to affect us financially,” said Palios. “Why would you … in terms of certain clubs, foist on them an even worse position?”

Palios said the impact of the coronavirus meant EFL rules that hit insolvent clubs with points penalties should be relaxed.

Although points deductions can be appealed against on the grounds of “force majeure” events, Palios also called for a clarification of rules regarding clubs which entered administration.

“This is a consequence of a pandemic, so I think they need to be considering that clubs may need to go to the protection of administration,” he said.
Never was fair to deduct clubs points in the first place pal, live with it!

Still no decision, the EFL once again showing that they can Vicky Pollard look decisive.

Looks like we'll finally have a decision tomorrow.

My brothers and sisters, we have been here before. We rose again then, and we can rise again again. Might not be immediate, and there'll be plenty along presently to worry that there may be no tomorrow. But you and I can't change that, so for now, have faith. We are Bolton, and we are proud, and we will support them.

I hope the club said that they would be against getting automatic relegation.

Ending the season early was probably the right thing to do but to turn around and say we'll take a relegation without putting up a challenge seems a little hard to take.

Hopefully next season is a fresh start.

We need as good a go at pre season as possible - sooner the club are in a position to sell season tickets (with I follow options possible I am guessing) the better.

We’re Bolton Wanderers, we are on our way back.
