Re: Backs to the Millwall, Sat 9/3 3pm

Two goals in the same game

Is that allowed?

Re: Peter Thompson

I only saw Nat Lofthouse play at the end of his career (Babysitting Franny Lee). So for over 30 years Peter Thompson was my greatest Wanderers hero. Full Stop Bar None. It was a Thing of Beauty to see him mesmerise full-backs before delivering the perfect crosses. Eventually we had 3 players who cou...

Hope tonight has worn them out.

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

It seems to me that we have 3 key games - Burton Barnsley and Birmingham.
If we win all 3 - we will be certain to stay up.
We would have 48 points and they would all have one game less to catch us.

Re: Can we get out of Gaol at Reading, or will we go home Wilde? Reading v B.W.F.C, 6TH March 8-0'clock.

Still a good point - especially with everyone below us losing.

If Kirchoff is half the player for us that he was for Sam at Sunderland we will be fine.

Re: Bottom feeders: wounded Wanderers v sinking Sunderland 20/2/18 8pm

Kirchhoff's interesting. 6ft 5in. Still only 27. Signed by Bayern at 23 after doing well for Mainz, but his career's stalled since – loaned out to Schalke, dropped to Bayern's reserves, then 18 months at Sunderland, Sam-signed in January 2016. Debut at centre-back was the most calamitous since Wood...

Re: RIP Jimmy Armfield

Heard it on the radio earlier this evening. Condolences to his immediate family and those that knew him. Very sad news. I think he was in my first ever away match - aged about 7- It was live on TV- the first ever - away at Bloomfield road. BWFC making history. http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/co...

Re: Time to Declare...

Have we moved on a bit.
last 15 games - 23 points
A repeat of that should see us OK with a couple of weeks to spare.
That would be tough to keep going, but at least we have a fighting chance now

It was dreadful but six unbeaten and in touch. Given we looked like going down without about 6 points 6 weeks ago it's ok.
Seconded.
It was an awful match - two poor teams.

But at least we got something out of it

Re: Turning the tide? Orwell adrift? Ipswich (A) 16/9/17 3pm

On the face of it, Ipswich – embarking upon their 16th successive second-stratum season since being sent down by Fredi Bobic’s outlier of a hat-trick – could be firmly pinned into the middle of the Championship’s three mini-divisions: presumably safe from the drop, but significantly outmuscled by t...

Re: The Blades to stick the knife in? Bolton v Sheffield Utd 12/9/17.

We're playing a side that came up with us at home. We have to look for all three points here. Agree, with some minor reservations. Allardyce would probably accept a point to end the run, but under him we were never quite as marooned (although we did have longer bad runs: 12 winless in 01/02, six st...

Re: Freedman out!

First act as DoF at Palace - De Boer, 47, met with Palace chairman Steve Parish and sporting director Dougie Freedman on Monday, 28 August. Parish and Freedman left that meeting very underwhelmed and with no confidence that the Dutchman was the right man to turn Palace's fortunes around. Two weeks (...

Re: It was 13 years ago today

Don't know how to write this on the interweb without it becoming some binary nonsense. Hierro was absolutely fantastic for that period in the latter half of the season in midfield. Superb. However, I often hear Bolton fans say he was the best player they've seen. He played less than half a season o...
