Re: COVID-19/20 season

The longer this virus lingers the longer football will remain absent. There are many clubs treading water and worried for their survival in these current climes. Who will be the first club to announce they're experiencing financial problems. There are too many clubs relying on the money from TV righ...

Re: COVID-19/20 season

I have no doubt this season is over and will probably struggle to begin a new one in August. I read earlier that amateur leagues have been called void which gives my home Town club Atherton colls another chance at the Northern prem. As yet, nothing has been mentioned whether the Premier League or th...

Re: COVID-19/20 season

If anyone believes the season to begin again in August should give this a bit more thought. I can't see this virus disappearing in time for a new season, It could take over a year for this to clear and safe for folk to mix again. Life as we knew it doesn't exist and wont for a while yet. I won't vis...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

This could be the end of the season as we know it. What happens should this be the case will be a headache for the PL & EFL. Some clubs will simply not survive. I firmly believe Uefa, Fifa and other footballing bodies could call an end to all competitions and declare them void. What will happen shou...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

It's not looking good for sporting events with football seeming to will follow sooner than later. Will Bolton's game V Peterbrorough be played of postponed, or even played behind closed doors. What ever does happen at this stage in the season could be worry for the club once again. Do FV have the fi...

Re: The Keith Hill out thread

I can't bring myself listen to Hills pre/post match interviews any longer, the guy just waffles on and on. According to form he was pleased by that performance at Wimbledon. That says everything about this manager.

Re: Don the tin helmets and Plough on regardless, AFCW (A) 7/3/2020 3pm9

So I'm guessing the second half was as bad as the first. I doubt that FV will be impressed and hope for a reaction from them sooner than later. This is not good, and Bolton fans deserve better than this. I expect FV to make a management change sooner than later. Hill had failed in my opinion and he ...

Re: Don the tin helmets and Plough on regardless, AFCW (A) 7/3/2020 3pm9

That first half was bloody terrible. That Bolton team has to be the worst I have ever witnessed, and believe me there have been many. I know I have shouted to keep Hill in for next season but I have many doubts. This crop of players would struggle big time in the bottom league. Before the (" we're l...

Re: Division Four, 2020-?

I remember last time we were in the bottom league and it wasn't an easy ride. It's going to take a highly skilled manager to gather a group of players supposedly good enough to get promotion. As much as I'd like a different manager to make that assault, it would appear Mr Hill will once again lead t...

Re: More donkey lashing? Blackpool (A) 25.2.20 KO 7.45

I watched it via I follow and thought afterwards what a waste of time. I didn't know whether to cry or laugh after they got the winner. Suppose I have become accustom to these type of performances over the past few years, not knowing where our next goal is coming from let alone a point. I fear for n...

There's nothing to lose so play them, that will give us some idea what shape we'll be in for next term.
As for tonight, who knows, they may even surprise us and win but, I doubt it.

I was one who welcomed the appointment of Hill & Flitcroft but I did expect better than this. No doubt the "we have to be lucky we have a club to support" brigade will keep telling us his hands are tied, he's no money and he can't buy anyone. For anyone who listened to his pre/post match ramblings w...

Re: Day after St Valentines day massacre? Bolton v Wycombe Home, Sat 15th Feb. 3-o'clock.

I think most Bolton fans knew what they was getting in Keith Hill, especially if you listened to his pre/post match interviews whilst at Rochdale. Like most, we wrote this season off before a ball was kicked but, I did expect a gathering of players good enough to at least compete in this league. Wha...
