Re: Administration and recovery

but still I think that’s football fan anxiousness not business sense... I don't. The pragmatist in me tells me that there's no fecking way on Earth that we're going to be good to go 18 days from now. What do you mean by good to go? My point was more that the business of the deal is priority for tho...

Re: Who Are The League One Managers? No.4: Phil Parkinson

And certainly NOT "has the last train gone?". :lol: Somehow (don't ask) this reminds me of a journey to Blackpool made by forum member General Mannerheim in which,if memory serves, in an inebriated state (presumably), he bought a thimble and a tie and sent himself a postcard home to prove he'd been...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

I see that Oan Djorkaeff's signed for St Mirren. I'd have signed him just because he's his dad's lad :) By way of former players - Antoneeeeeeeeee's signed for Wigan, Danny Guthrie [Mitra Kukar - Walsall], BIG Tom Eaves [Gillingham - Hull], Craig Dawson [West Brom - Watford] and doubtlessly several ...

Re: The athletics/running thread

So, popped down to watch Ironman yesterday with BP and Enfield. What an absolute privilege it is that our town hosts this. Every contestant an absolute fecking legend. Everybody involved in the organisation and the set up (and take down) incredible. Small beer though it is, it was fantastic to do th...

Re: Who Are The League One Managers? No.4: Phil Parkinson

Bolton manager Phil Parkinson has a unique claim to fame: he is the only manager to take a side from the English fourth tier to the Wembley final of a major cup competition. He has also won nine Manager of the Month awards and received the LMA Special Merit award in 2013. He also holds the UEFA Pro...

Re: Pre Season...York

Here's something that occurred to me. The players we've grubbed together - who'll be insuring them? Only, if I was a player in limbo and had been asked to play, it's a question which would be at the top of my list.

Re: The official Bolton Stream/Radio link thread.

Jut a thought: Things being as they are, I'm wondering if we'll have match commentary from Tower Radio this season ? I suppose it depends on the likes of Axfords etc and those who have supported us so far for sponsorship. Sure hope so. Just read that apparently it was announced last night that Towe...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

What this does further highlight, of course, is how utterly fecking ridiculous it is that we're the hosts to the most prestigious one day international tournament of a game that we took to the world and it isn't covered by terrestrial television. Then people wonder how come there are those of us in ...

Who is Mr Moe?
A DJ, apparently. What fecking good he is to us, I've no idea.

However, for those on Spotty's cerebral plane, it's 'not too hard a concept' by dint of it being in the 'Our Next Manager' thread.

I'd have thought it should be in the 'Our Next DJ' thread, personally.
