Saddling up Saturday

Right, seeing as no-one else has bothered.

Third v Eleventh.

Home v Away

Win v Lose

Place your bets ladies and gents.

It's an important game, we really need a win if we've any chance of getting automatic promotion.

Hopefully get back to 1-0 us.

As an aside, I've noticed that the "game thread" is being posted a lot nearer the kick off date now we're actually not doing too badly.

Some people just want to get in there nice and early with the doom and gloom, this season must be killing them....
What a hero, What a man...... Ooooh, what a bad foul...

Not really a doom and gloom merchant.....However, the Saddlers are on a good run at the moment and we have not won in the league in 2017. We need to win if he starts with Madine and ALF on the bench I will not be happy and we will most likely lose with this scenario. Looks like Derik will go to right back if Thorpe is still injured it may mean a different system to get ALF into the team as Madine is head scratchingly undroppable. Otherwise it will be Trotter in Midfield please God no not Trotter anything but Trotter!!

I think we will win 2-1 but it will be close!

I have to say, it shows up the mindset of some of the people on here when there's hundreds of replies to discussions about Ken Anderson and Dean bloody Holdsworth (mainly supposition) and there's five replies to the actual, upcoming game thread....

Nah. That shows people care about the football club in the longer term.

Win lose or draw on Saturday and in a year, nobody will care or remember. But the ramifications of our ownership could affect the club for years to come if not longer.

Dear God! Yes, the entire future of the club is hinged on this week's game.

From Parky's press conference:
Bolton Wanderers FC ‏@OfficialBWFC 1m1 minute ago
PP: I was at a fans' forum last night and it gave me great heart to hear their passion for the football club. #BWFC
Bolton Wanderers FC ‏@OfficialBWFC 1m1 minute ago
PP: Tomorrow is a big day for us on the football pitch. I want the supporters to really get behind us. #BWFC
Parky and the fans are about the only good thing at our football club right now.

This might be a huge dose of wishful thinking, but I think we might be galvanized tomorrow and with a new line up as a result of our full back issues, hammer Walsall 4-0 :pissed: :pissed:

Have to divorce football from finance for a couple of hours at least today. This lot just has to intrude on players heads to some degree; let's just hope in a positive fighting way. As ever, COME ON YOU WHITES...... :oyea: :oyea:

Team line-up, as tweeted.

Alnwick
Beevers
Vela
Spearing
Madine
Derik
Trotter
A Taylor
Morais
Wheater
Le Fondre

I'd guess
Derik - Wheater - Beevers - Taylor
Spearing - Trotter
Morais - Vela - ALF
Madine

But it could be half a dozen alternatives.

Subs: Howard, Moxey, Solomon-Otabor, Long, Clayton, Thorpe, Wilkinson
