Re: Tonight's Football

Crowd at England v Germany Women's football tonight,77,700 plus. Just mentioning. I'm reading this wonderful book just now, entitled 'I Think You'll Find It's a Bit More Complicated Than That'. So, shall we break this marvellous 77,700 figure down into paying categories then? :D Was also billed as ...

Re: Will our guile make Plymouth rock? FA Cup 1st Round 9.11.19 KO 3pm

One good chance in the game and Plymouth scored. Defensively they were very well organised and only gave us half chances. Not enough quality balls into the box. Although a pretty dire game, I saw more action in the first two minutes than all the five games combined I watched last season. Silver lini...

Re: Can we give the junior citizens the blues? Man City u23s EFL Trophy (H) 29.10.19 KO 7pm

It's also possible that Hill had drilled into Weir what he expected from him, and Weir just ignored it. The ball is in Weir's court at the moment for me. If he wasn't listening to his boss, he'll have to start doing so. Mourinho's been just as brutal (if not more so) with his players in the past an...

I may not have much choice:

Labour - never
Tories - never
SNP - not voting for independence obsessed
Scottish Greens - See above
Independant candidate - what's the point?

I think quite a few will have the same view.

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Seems like Joe Dodoo was released by Rangers before the transfer window closed (https://rangers.co.uk/news/headlines/jo ... s-rangers/). Free to sign for another team whenever he likes.

Do we have three places left in the squad? Perhaps Dodoo will be signing soon.

What about Neil Danns (36 now) also at Bury? Can he do a job for us in this league? Limited player but always gave his all. Better than Murphy surely. I think we can do better, personally. Even in this state. I think and really hope you are correct but we might only be looking at freebies or loan p...

Nixon (whatever) tweets Hill keen on “the lad Dawson at Bury” I saw that but thought it better not quoting him. Did a bit of research on the lad. Stephen Dawson - 33 year old midfielder experienced in the lower levels (Mansfield, Bury, Barnsley, Leyton Orient, Rochdale). Signed and immediately made...

Re: The next manager

K.H. seems well satisfied to be managing Bolton and regards his appointment as an honour. Good sign for starters. As a manager he'll almost certainly get a grip on stopping us being the League One whipping boys. Sorry we didn't get Kev Nolan, but this appointment looks decent. Good luck Mr Hill and...

Re: The next manager

Marc Iles Tweeting we are due to appoint the new manager much sooner that expected (late next week was mooted earlier).

A Nixon Tweeting Michael James choosing and want an experienced unemployed manager.

All pointing to Keith Hill if true. We need someone and we need him now.

Re: Time to field the club Priest: A Vs Gillingham 31:08:19 3pm

We are deperate for some creativity and a striker. Gillingham have had 14 shots (5 on target). Bolton have had 1 shot.

Lets hope we have a few experiened players lined up on Monday. Some decent loans might be just what we need.

Re: The next manager

Hill and Nolan have both had/having interviews. So the story goes. Had them yesterday in London. Why don't you quote your source when you make these statements as though you are 'in the know'? Why not say, according to some random person on Twitter or just read on Lion of Vienna that they were both...
