just been having a look at LTLP Forest Forum. They are quite confident judging by the result poll - 47% win, only 24% for a BW win. Sounds like they were happier with how they played midweek against Charlton than previous games, but need a striker (sound familiar). The main thing in our favour seems to be our poor record so far and a fear they'll be the ones to break it

Hopefully Lennon will learn from the Forest away game where tactically he was all over the place and Freedman exploited that well.

Forest's main threat is Antonio (if he plays). If we play narrow and leave full backs unprotected against him we're in big, big trouble.

And Moxey has to have a pain killing injection to play. Mind that is still preferable to having Twardzik at left back ala Forest away last year....

he was left out of the squad midweek, and there is still talk of him moving away... it's certainly possible he won't be in the team...

We can only hope he's out, Antonio tears us a new one every time, we just can't cope with his pace. Hopefully the boot will be in the other foot and Wellington will return the favour.

We could have coped with his pace if we'd protected the full backs instead of leaving them totally exposed at Forest!

They'll run perfectly too.

I would bloody love to see Vela get on the score sheet. I'd pay the kid to run up toward Freedman and give him a sign of his affection.
Clough too... another young talent somehow missed out by Freedman's supposed keen eye for bringing players up from the academy...

Danns played well on Tuesday. Feeney got a few goals last season. Believe man!

The return on Dougie the deluded, the return of Big Screen? and potentially our first goals of the season makes for a good day out in my book (yes I don't get out much!).

I am hoping Silva gives it some welly and makes DF looking green with envy, or Clough jinks round 4 players and slots the ball home making Mills look like a Sunday League player! It could happen, I am still hopeful which is unusual for me.

Lets get behind the team like we are capable of like we did in Riochs days especiially when we played Wolves in the play offs stands out and in recent times when we played Arsenal after the game to forget. We can do it COYWM the season Starts ere!!!

stumbled across this site which publishes infographics to "make betting easier"!

from what I can gather - they think it's gonna be quite close... The only significant difference they seem to think there is is that we are more likely to score with our strikers and they are more likely to score from midfield... they reckon it's a close call either way! FWIW! (probably not much!)

there are a thousand more infographics about predicting this game on the tabs from this page...

http://www.kickoff.co.uk/matches/bolton ... 2-08-2015/

out of the last six of our home games against Forest - 5 have been draws - the other we won...

it's very clear..

the score is gonna be 48% of probably that but maybe 51% maybe of this taking into account 38% summat else compared with 42% contingency of 26% of a weighted 69% forecast of something else...

or in other words..

we're dooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomed.

It all comes down to the fact that Dougie Freedman returns to the place of his utmost incompetence today and I. Simply cannot countenance that dickwad leaving with a smile on his face.
Not advocating mass-murder as an entirely positive experience, of course, but it had its moments.
