Re: Is football not a man's field? Away @ the Stags 26th Jan 2021

I read in the paper that Bolton were due to stay in a hotel. At effing Mansfield?? It's not far away from being a local derby, get there in, what, two hours at most?? Next time Bolton plead poverty... “We incur costs for the hotel, travel all the way down here and it’s called off. It isn’t acceptabl...

Re: Can we give the Cumbrians, the blues? Carlisle away Sat 26th Dec.3-0 clock.

I've done most of the original 92 grounds - long before teams moved to identikit Lego stadiums built with IKEA leftovers. For the life of me I can't remember going to Brunton Park, I'm sure I have but there's no recollection there. I've never been since they built the lop-sided stand, if that helps....

How has the conversation got this far and not mentioned Jim McDonagh?
Superb keeper. Not only that, I think he got on the scoresheet too, v Burnley?

Re: Tonight's Football

Very well done to my 2nd team, Chorley, on coming back from 2-0 down to put Wiggin art ert th'eff aaay cup 3-2. And from what I saw of it - thoroughly deserved. Amazing, one point all bloody season (although, to be fair, not much of a season!) in the 6th tier and they stuffed Wigan at their place, ...

Re: All change at Crewe....

Do you remember the days when the FA cup really was magical and you didn't need the Beeb to keep telling you it was? Even 1st round ties were eagerly anticipated as you'd be looking to see if it gave you a real chance to progress and be one round nearer to landing a plum tie. Nowadays, even with cr...

Re: What would the gate have been for tomorrow night - normally?

For those of us who were there :? , that lowest league crowd was actually in the 3rd division. 35 years ago this Thursday. It was a combination of miserable weather + bonfire night + poor form. We went down to the bottom tier at the end of the following season. Average crowds around that time were ...

What would the gate have been for tomorrow night - normally?

If there was no such thing as coronavirus, and it was a normal season with season tickets, away fans, goalkeepers that could reach the ball etc, what would Bolton's average gate be considering their league position? Back in the Burnden 4th division days (for younger viewers, that's the fourth divisi...

Re: SAVE BURY

It beggars belief that any Bury fan would want to chip in to pay Dale off. The phoenix club is where it's at now and they'll have to hope in time that they can work their way up the divisions and buy Gigg Lane back from whoever has it then. I do like the fact that after years of their snide Horwich...

If that discombobulating collection of wordage is a genuine expression of the Bury steering committee, and if I was a Bury supporter, I would consider seriously the option of packing my bags and leaving the ship before the rats block the gangways.

Re: A win would bee too late! Versus Brentford. Home Sat 27th April. 3-0'clock k

It's a good job Brentford and Forest are mid-table and their rersults don't affect those around them. The EFL won't call a game off if they don't have to - and as the situation is so (a) serious (b) avoidable and (c) not of their own making Bolton will be hit very hard - a massive points deduction n...
