I think they can forget any lofty ideas of a long and fulfilling career at the Daily Mash or the Onion.

Roll on that was tiresome.

Didn't someone say Holdsworth has been absent for medical reasons? Lack of kneecaps?

Our Kid mentioned this yesterday. Stress related issues apparently, but I can't find any mention of it elsewhere. :conf:

Rumour is he's been off with stress. Not great in conjunction with the rumour about his loan repayment to blumarble being late....

Two months in and he's already off with "stress"? Ferk me. What'll he be like in six months' time when we're propping up Div One and have been knocked out of the Cup by Solihull Motors?

Rumour denied by the club, per BN.
...sources at the club have refuted claims the first payment on a loan taken out from BluMarble Capital Ltd during the takeover is now late. The loan – which helped finance Sports Shield BWFC’s bid to buy the club from Eddie Davies – is secured against assets owned by Burnden Leisure Ltd and Bolton Wanderers Football and Athletic Company.

All loans to companies who put capital letters in the middle of their name are void anyway.

Ah, intercaps. Imagine the repulsion when Ajax insisted their new place was called the Amsterdam ArenA: "Not in our mag, it's not."
