Re: New Manager Thread

Evatt: Bolton Wanderers is a fantastic football club with an incredible history and fanbase and this is a really exciting opportunity for us all. Hopefully I can bring a brand and an identity that people will enjoy watching – attacking and scoring goals is what we all want to see. We want to be cha...

Re: General Chit Chat

Everyone's going on about the change of slogan: Christ, its not rocket science - surely anyone with even a fraction of common sense can understand the sentiment behind the message. People calling it out are just trying to score points again

Re: General Chit Chat

Don't kid yourself. I'm not defending the government at all - merely pointing out that its a terrible situation we find ourselves in, and rather than point scoring, sniping and offering hindsight-benefited advice is of no help whatsoever. Its a nightmare and we need to all work together, and any gov...

Agreed. From the minute this crisis descended upon us the world has been full or critics and experts who blame the people in charge and could have done better. Blah blah blah.

Re: General Chit Chat

This isn’t a plan. It’s not a way forward. It’s just passing of the buck. A vacuum of leadership. We can see real leaders in other nations take a clear stand and step up. We get a slogan that doesn’t even make sense and new advice that isn’t in any way clear, or appropriate to the situation we find...

same here. When we moved they came up cheapest - although not by a lot. Can't say I'm impressed or not impressed by them to be completely honest. I have gas and I have eleccy, and I am paying a little less than I was before.No complaints

This isn’t point scoring. It’s looking at thousands of people dying who could have been spared. You sure about that? Absolutely sure?

Campionne 2000 by E-Type was around for a while - early 2000's I think (hence title of song....)?

Indeed they have. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51867989 No need to worry for us. First paragraph of the BBC story reads: "Elite football in Britain has been suspended until at least 3 April" - we've been so far from Elite for the past few years presumably we will be OK to carry on? Maybe we...

Alright that. A draw against a team 11 places & 22 points (excl -12) ahead of us in the league. According to the highlights more chances for us than them - including 1 off the line - and on their patch too.

Not a bad result overall

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

My point is that a better manager would probably have got more out of this squad of players, and that the current squad should have been capable of better results & performances than they have under Hill. I agree that all players deteriorate at some stage, but surely not the whole squad - and if yo...

But it is though, Hill knew the score and the conditions that he would be working under when he took the job. He's signed Emmanuel (ex championship player), Nsiala (ex championship player), Daryl Murphy (ex championship player), Fleming (ex championship player), O'Grady, Bunney, Hamilton & Delaney ...

Re: Another fine mess Stanley (H) 29.2.2020 3pm KO

We should certainly hope for better, but why expect better? Where exactly does the expectation come from? We've been mis-managed for years and it all came to a head last year when we very nearly went out of existence. Potential investors were few and far between, and one of them - only one - was pre...
