Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

Nugent is getting on a bit (33), being a sub is probably perfect for him. Not that I have any idea about if he's any good these days, or would go to Bolton.

Re: You can't buy character; but you can apparently get it for free.

Good to hear! Which players have there been recently who've had character? It seems like a while since they were a team of battlers.

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

This whole signing players thing and getting linked with Johnny Foreigner(s) seems very strange!

Yup, anything like copyright infringement is best avoided (:

Never watched football at Leeds... A game in August. Maybe this year!

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

Well, that presumably means they're fairly sure about making signings. Looks like a bit of a shake up with only one senior forward, goalkeeper and a reduced midfield. Probably about time.

Re: Shaking like a leaf, oh no have I got Parkinsons'? Home to Forest 12:30 Sun 6th May 2018

Pretty much where I am, only, I actually think that relegation 'could' be a blessing, in that we'll be forced to get rid of most of these these shithouses and bring through the academy players. Too simplistic? Maybe, but can it get any worse? That's what I think every time (: It hasn't happened yet...

The Venn diagram that represents this may overlap considerably, but I know for a fact won't be an exact match.
Especially with everyone on this board who lives outside of Bolton. Same with any club.

At the time Mind you, players change: Marcos Alonso won the Premier League.
Think I read somewhere he's Chelsea's player of the year this season. Afobe didn't get much of a chance at Bolton.

I've been passing Barnsley every day this week. Couldn't do it again at the weekend. Just seen where they are in the table. Gulp!

Didn't the style of play change (more passing) when Madine went? What happened to that?

Re: We are (hopefully) staying up: the opposition

I think there are a lot more factors at play when it comes to attendances. Aside from the amount of football on telly these days and the marketing of the premiership, there has been huge social change in the last decade or so that competes for attention. Shopping malls are now destinations for leis...

It might be painful for us, short term (although not the disaster some want conjure up), but it'll be even more painful for the EU, and frankly the fifth biggest single interest bloc on the planet (after the western industrial-military complex, OPEC, Big pharma, and tobacco), i.e. European car manu...

Re: The Weather

Don't know what it's like for everyone else but here the second "mini" beast from the east is worse than the first. Seemed fine at about 6pm last night but by 9pm the car had vanished. Roads that were fine last time are causing problems this time. Maybe it's that there are less cars on a weekend or ...

Re: Will a chilla on the Hilla versus Villa be a thrilla...? Home V Aston Villa, Sat 17th Mar. 5-30.

Bolton can pass! When did this happen?

Villa didn't seem like a top 6 side but they weren't poor. Without those saves from Alnwick and that goal-line clearance from Flannigan that would be a draw or a loss.

Never been so happy to be watching a game indoors.

Re: The Weather

Car wouldn't start, recovery people jumped it and needed a new battery. Had to pick the other half up at about 9.30pm. Having driven out and back previously and now having a new battery I was confident I could at least get out of my drive... "was". Struggled. Turned TRC off and whacked it in second ...

Tierney was a real shame. I think I was at the game he got injured in, surprisingly.

Re: What Car - suggestions please

Yeah. I mean these are basically cars for middle aged/semi-old men like me who want something very comfortable but don't care what it is - (and mothers taking their kids to school who think an SUV means they can do what they like ). Isn't that all SUV drivers!? :D Well another KIA has just gone out...
