    Been on the beers since finishing work. Get home and the mrs has flaked out. Sat searching YouTube vids with a few gins trying to reminisce but where do you go Okocha running Keane about the park, scoring that free kick against Villa or against bora, or sending West Ham down, or any showboating. Pedersen scoring goals from ridiculous angles. Sasa and Pollock running rings. Vaz Te miss hitting some worldies. Djorkaef and Hierro gracing the pitch in a white shirt. Anelka scoring for fun in his peak. Stelios playing football with a smile. Nolan and Ricketts smashing United. Davies equalising in Munich. Campo winning free kicks and that strike against Spurs. Chris Fairclough doing his same warmup routine. Paul Warhurst with his 60’s mop. Making a song out of Mixxu Paatalainen. Playing Zenit in europa, a game only fit for Mark Fish. Fabien De Freitas being lighting quick getting to his feet to score against reading. Branagan’s penalty save. That rivaldo fax. Ricardo Gardener and Jermaine Johnson given us both barrels or flair. Morais delivering. Alfie being a striker, a poor mans Klasnic. Freddie Bobic’s hatrick. Bob Taylor! Praying for Fabrice. Praying for Stuart Holden’s knees. Chungy at brum. Liking Scotland a little bit with McGinlay, Walker and Colin Hendry. McGinlay’s goals, McGinlay’s pubs. Listening to Arsene and Benitez moaning. The Icelandic lads, Gudni and Eidur. Dave ding dong do. Nicky Hunt playing upfront. The little guys Michael Johanson, Stig Tofting, Jay Spearing and Stelios. Wembley against Tranmere, liverpool and Reading. Zenden’s double kick, Stoke and Villa in the Semis. Deano as a player. David Reeve’s teeth. Jussi’s double save at Rovers. Felgate being my childhood hero. Beardsley, Shilton, Sir Les and Sir Emile donning a white shirt. Ian Marshall never having a shirt big enough. Ariza too. Jardel losing his golden boot in his shorts. Owen Coyle when you’re winning. Diouf being our wanker. Bo Hansen scoring anything. Elmander’s 10 million pound goal against wolves. Bruno’s military haircut. Crying to my dad that I’m too cold in the lever end. A footballing legend, Gary Speed. Nakata and Nishizawa bringing tears to japs eyes. Jlloyd not conceding a penalty to ronaldo. Aguero getting sent off. Tony Kelly actually playing football, well. Per leaving, Per coming back. Medo’s potential. Standing at Burnden. Alan Smith crying, Joe Cole crying Big Sam making the good times. Eddie throwing good money after bad and now Bassini’s white shirt I’m certain I’ve missed many, I can definitely keep adding to this. I’m still paying a credit card I maxed out following the whites in Europe, I would do it all again tomorrow I can’t wait for this period in our history to be over. I’m sick of reading about all the shite. one miserable bastard. COYWM

    Long time coming, but the final bit of the funds raised went towards part funding a standing frame, which Erin got to use for first time at school today (yes, some stuff really does take an age). Wanted to share to show you the joy you have brought to Erin, who loves working hard as you can see in this photo. Promised an update and want to thank each and every one of you who helped out, as a family we remain so grateful.

    Morning chaps, Haven’t posted for eons, but see there’s some survivors from when I did. Anyway, you’re all going through a shit storm at the moment, wouldn’t wish it on anyone, even ‘wall. Hopefully you get your club back and come back to where a club with as rich a history as you have belong. All the best, Yossi, WHU supporter.

    I've been pretty quiet on here over the last few seasons. Mostly due to the sheer fucking despair at our situation and the tailspin we have ended up in. But also because I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer about 18 months ago. It was shock. I was pretty young to get it (55 at the time). I'd been to Dr's about summat else and he sent me for a blood test and they picked it up. At first it was 'low grade, low risk'. I had regular blood tests and a biopsy. That was bloody horrible. Anyway, I went for more tests and they said that it had got worse and they needed to act before it spread. I had my Prostate gland removed in August last year. It was a pretty miserable time. I was off work 6 weeks. I had a catheter fitted, could hardly walk. Just shit really. But - when I got the results back following the op they said that there were clear margins around the gland so it hadn't spread. I will be having 3 monthly blood tests and consultations for the foreseeable but so far it's all looking good. I have been very lucky. Some of you will know that I do a bit of running, I used to try to encourage folk off here to do Parkrun. As I had some warning before the operation I figured my best hope of a faster recovery was to get as fit as I could beforehand and hopefully retain some of it. I did my first ever marathon, Bolton hill marathon (a bit embarrassing as I've been running 20 years!) and that went ok so I did my first ever Ultra marathon a fortnight later (5 Passes ultra in Lakes, 33 miles). That was a long day out - 10 hours! - but I went round with 2 lasses from our running club and we had a great day. I have gradually got fitness back starting with low goals and building up and up. Although I don't think I will ever really be how I was before I am in not bad shape now, physically. I wanted a goal to aim for both as part of my recovery and also as a big Fuck You to cancer. I decided to do the Joss Naylor Challenge. It's not a race, you can do it whenever you like. It appealed because it is aimed at over 50's and you get longer to complete it the older you are. It's 48 miles across the Lakes and 17,000' ascent. I have 15 hours to do it in. It also appealed because part of it is to raise money for a charity of your choice. I have chosen Prostate Cancer UK. I've been training hard over the last months since recovering from the op. Been up to Lakes virtually every weekend and getting the miles in recceing the route. Can I do it? I honestly don't know, I'll find out next month. I'll give it a bloody good shot though. https://www.gofar.org.uk/jossnaylorlc.html If anyone can spare a quid or so then it would be very gratefully received. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/simon-fox24 Also if anyone wants to talk about any Prostate Cancer concerns then PM me. Cheers.

    Read the comments about wages. Players have come here cos no one else wanted them at this level. Add in shit storm that the club has become no manager would have had much chance of keeping us up. Parky has made some strange and some just bad calls but the idea it is all his fault is honestly bollocks. I do think he has to go but I won’t join in this hatred that people seem to have to him.

    Ok this is not the popular view 1)Parkinson came in when we were rock bottom & stopped the rot. 2) Despite all the embargo shite & players who had forgotten what winning felt like we got promoted , not pretty but effective management 3)Despite limited recruitment & further financial constraints we finished fourth from bottom a position most fans would have taken at the season start. 4) Further financial shenanagens have followed & our fans have become fed up with the attritional nature of the battle to stay up so they believe the time for manager change is overdue & many have stopped attending matches citing the playing style. Of course Parky has had his critics from day one & the fact he has been virtually unsackable due to finances has stoked the criticism Personally I think in the main he has done a decent job but the critical mass of support now seems to be against him the takeover will undoubtably see him gone ....I for one wont judge him too harshly.

    He isn't a cunt though is he. Handled himself incredibly professionally throughout his time here. As a youngish lad who can remember the uefa cup but certainly did not appreciate it hes given me some of my best times watching us. Most of league one - port vale, southend, peterboro and forest last year are days ill never forget and he was the man in charge. His football is not great on the eye, especially when getting beat every week!! But if he was to go, he'd go with a massive thanks from me.

    That's reasonable. I'd argue making a rational assessment of his ability to manage in the championship is difficult given the conditions he's operated under, the likelihood is that no-one here has a full picture of how bad they've been until perhaps he writes a book about it. Time may tell a different story, if he goes on to success elsewhere then some of the people pointing the finger at him may feel differently. However the last point you make is a valid one. He's lost too much support and he's too associated with the misery of the last season in particular for any new owner to continue with him if they want the bounce from a fresh start. My guess is he's probably happy to go as well, the club has been a basket case for a long time now and isn't helping anyone's career prospects including his. What still gets me and one reason why I'm on this thread wanting to talk about the finances and not this subject which doesn't belong here, is that there's several of you that are happy to abuse the man on a personal level because you've not enjoyed the football on offer. Here's a fucking newsflash, no-one has enjoyed the style of football on offer, but some don't use that as an excuse to call a guy trying his best in very difficult circumstances, a cunt. This when you have the very definition of the word owning the club and making the decisions that undermined PP and everyone else in the process? The fact you're doing this as he's giving his time to go in and help the administrators and the club despite he and his staff not being paid since February is one more reason why he deserves at least a basic level of respect, whatever your opinions of him as a tactician. He's conducted himself well throughout despite being under immense pressure. I'm grateful for his efforts for the club during his time here and I wish him well in his next role.

    Yet again we don’t score. We’ve scored 29 goals all season (4 of which were in the 1st 2 games), that means we need over a game and a half to score 1 goal. There are only Huddersfield with 20, Cardiff with 30 (both 9 less games) and Ipswich with 33 that are anywhere near as low out of 92 league teams. You’re not telling me that we’re the only team out of the whole 4 leagues that have what we consider to be poor players, or have had off the field issues, or play teams that have spent more money than us? His approach to football is not only negative and one-dimensional but most of all every game is played with a defeated attitude. His excuses are already lined up for him, and his players, before they step on to the pitch, we know he is up against it but if he had anything about him then he would find a way around it, it’s not impossible. Instead you can write the script for the next game because it’s exactly the same as all the previous ones, nothing changes, there’s nothing new. Maybe he has just been worn down and hasn’t got the energy anymore but whatever the reason it’s got to be the end of the road for him. I know he has had success in the league below but the whole club needs a clean slate, an injection of energy and most of all to be rid of this defeatist attitude. Ta for the promotion, keeping us up (just) and being civil whilst it all went to shit off the field this year but the club has to try something different.

    Mate your only ever a port vale or forest away from getting your chi back. Home matches aren’t tosh because of Ken Anderson or winding up orders. Folk aren’t staying because we owe front row sports management a few quid. Folk have had enough because the football is shit and the macron is the shittest place on planet earth when the football is shit. All this stuff just emphasises it. We all know or pretend to know too much. It’s compete overkill. That’s why every fucker is bored to tears with it all. It’s spoke and debated about every single day. Chairmans notes, Marc iles and the twitters m*ngs clamour to get every single piece of info they can to beat the Andersons with saturates everyone. We are all as guilty as charged here. It whips up a frenzy and every cunts in a bad mood going to the match, folk threatening to boycott and spray painting bed sheets. These fuckers have no idea what it actually is they are protesting about. The only thing that can change the mood imo is Parky going to reading and is getting a manager with a positive style of play. If that’s sees us relegated then fair do’s because as it stands we are fucked anyway and everyone’s just pissed off. Only on the pitch stuff can save this from us seeing the season out with no fucker in the ground.

    Presumably you've not heard what they sang about Muamba nor what they sang about Sir Nat? Did you not see the flag hung over the bridge on the M66? The vast majority of them are United or City fans AND Bury fans. When they say they're going into town they don't even mean Bury. They're a worthless turd. It's a town that doesn't deserve its own football team. Fuck them.

    When the dust settles on this rancid affair a fair bit of hatchet burying needs to take place . I am the first to admit I gave Anderson too much credit (only game in town etc) but its become clear that he is a tank top wearing cunt of the lowest calibre . The derision the 'Anderson out' brigade got on here was shall we say in hindsight a bit arrogant.Just because you are eighteen years old & calling him out doesnt make you wrong .Similarly the local journo sometimes with justification getting dogs abuse but not everytime he commits to print. The ST have been a huge disapointment to us all but do we stand back chucking bricks into their yard or try to mitigate the lack of transparency by getting a few real heads in there to shake them up a bit & help limit their unwarranted ambition. Going down a division means less of us to keep the faith a bit more tolerance to fellow whites might help. Taking the piss aside obviously. Mea culpa

    there are a batch of twixes shop shuts up at 1700 at which time all twixes will be returned to the supplier howard and his soldiers of fortune have a deal set up with the suppliers to take them off their hands if bez buys the last twix, a statement will likely be released just before the shop closes, explaining that B.A., Murdoch, Face and indeed Hannibal himself were looking to feast on these goodies, but they sold out just before the end now, as it stands, bez might not actually have enough pocket money for both fingers of the twix, so offers the A Team 50p not to nab them when the shop closes, and tries to agree a deal with the shop keeper to stay open until 6 whilst he tidies his room, and does extra pots in the hope that his dad sees he learned from his mistakes of last week (he was a right little shit, and his mum is too soft) and allows him to go ahead and get the twix. this allows bez the time to get extra pocket money, and get to eat the twix anytime in the next 14 days. shop keeper thinks that the deal he did with the supplier is bollocks, because they have changed the signage slightly. does that clear anything up? I've no masters in analytics, nor any experience in business, but I know my way around a twix

    Aye they entered the high court hoping HMRC would file for admin. They said fuck off we want insolvency. The judge agreed and that was the only way it was heading. at the time ED had simply had enough. Fresh from the death of Gartside and his fortune already been pissed away, with the KA we were gone. ...and without KA we’d have been gonners 2-3 times since. There’s more to running a multi million business than simply putting cash in. Honeslty people are so naive. Weve all heard from the horses mouths what a state the accounts were in. We had forensic accountants going through the books, We were losing an absolute fortune in a daily basis and nobody in the land wanted the job to sort it out apart fro KA, in which he did. He fucked a lot of people over and upset plenty in doing so but he’s achieved his remit which was to stabilise the clubs cash flow and outgoings and make the business into a sellable or investable business. We weren’t but now we are. Simples really. forget the chairman’s notes and all the other circus generated in social media. He’s done or nearly done what he was asked to do. He never said he was going to do anything else. Fair fucks to the guy. If he wanted to screw us over and rinse us he could have easily done so. But he didn’t, he remained diligent in spite of all the bile he faced. Target achived ken. Well done i say.

    Hi all; been a long time voyeur on the site and a few things I've seen have made me pants twitch. But as a Wanderer for over 50 years; reading a lot of the stuff on this thread and in the general press has prompted me to sign up and comment. For all you Ken haters, you won't like it. I suggest you tighten sphincters and bite hard on your leather tethers. For all his sweaty Ken persona, his dodgy dealings, his half truths, his late submission of accounts and general misgivings, without him there would be no Bolton Wanderers. He maybe a shyster, but he's our shyster. The man who saved our club when no other fkcer would come close to us. He is our Ken wrong 'un and we should be behind him and the players next monday when we play WBA. And if, against all odds, we do survive in this division, he'll be lauded as just a naughty boy and the best fkcn businessman in football. (Or not. We wait to see). He's our Ken Wrong Un, so lets get behind him and the club. Oh and that Keith Andrews can fuck right off.

    The guy is a fucking idiot and got what he deserved. In a world where social media plays such a part you can be dismissed from work for gross misconduct ‘liking’ idiotic posts is only going to antagonise Ken further more. No need, childish, pathetic and bordering on unprofessional. Particularly in the last few days yes he has a job to do but part of that job is providing a balanced, impartial view on the going’s on. He has provided neither recently and when the club is the sole purpose of your employment you’d hope he’d have enough between his ears to realise time is up playing the martyr for the bwfc Twitter M0ng brigade. If he was a landlord of a boozer and some Dick head slagged him off then came in every weekend for a pint he’d do exactly the same thing so why KA should do any different is beyond me. The guys a fucking clown who should’ve been banned long ago for his incompetence alone. Well done Ken

    I saw the truth from the beginning ffs KA’s job was to balance the books and spin plates till investment came. He’s done that with success so far. It just can’t carry on, we don’t have a Gary Madine or ED now. We either get investment elsewhere or admin is a distinct possibility. KA has openly and repeatedly stated every fucking week we need more money. I really don’t know what people expect. To quote Traf, to me and you KA is an extremely rich man. In football club owner terms he’s a dosser. We just don’t have enough money to pay the bills. We are small club, on a small budget, paying for premier league facilities and trying to compete in a league with a bunch of giants. It just doesn’t compute. listen to what the former Wigan owner says above and just think of the job KA or any other owner coming in has on his hands. We need £10m just to switch the lights on ffs. Folk need to realise the size of club we are and shite revenue we actually create. We need a billionaire not a Ken Anderson to survive at this level. Unfortunately the market is already saturated and foreign billionaires won’t fancy buying a club ten miles away from biggest club in the world and Man City with 12k attendances.

    And they’re the ones who don’t bother half the time. The hangers on. There in the prem days and when beating Peterborough etc but not there any other time. Them and their opinions can fuck off as far as I’m concerned the issue now is, the every weekers (made up of the majority on here) when some of those begin to lose interest, which many clearly are then there’s a fundamental problem. Were putting up with being skint. Nearly ceasing existence, the club being dragged through the mud, 3rd division football, -12 points. We’re all willing to look past those issues. But not the type of dross that is served up. That in itself tells the story working men and women from working class backgrounds from a working class town want to be excited. Looking forward to a Saturday. Graft all week, a bit of escapism for a couple of hours. We’ve not had that and I don’t see it changing if PP remains that’s not moaning for moaning sake. That’s being sick to fuck with being bored shitless and the one bit of hope and enjoyment being turned in to a miserable chore. And paying hard earned money for the privilege

    Sluffy you are right, we have been running at a shortfall for many years, long before Ken came a long. however we had an owner willing to put his own cash in to prop it up for most of those years In rolls Ken, pissing and moaning about all the legacy contracts he inherited and a plan to balance the books. Three years later we have a wage bill (all signed by Ken) of £800k a month crippling us but this time with no owner willing to put his own money in Given Ken didn’t want to put the money in (which is fair enough), he shouldn’t have signed the playing contracts that he did as he had no way to pay for it Rank bad management, end of story

    In 2 weeks time we will be a new club a new ownership, hopefully a new manager who wants to play football, build a team around young connell. It's to late for this season but hopefully it will be the start of the long road back. One positive from a horrible day was the incredible support that we have and we can still be a bit feisty as well. In a few years time we will be back at Wigan and revenge will be ours. All the lancashire teams will be laughing at our demise and who can blame them they've felt the wrath of the white army over the years but enjoy it you cunts cos we'll be back!!

    If there is one silver lining to come out of the current situation, it is that quite a lot of people are starting to realise just how much Eddie Davies actually did for this club, and how much he actually bankrolled us to eventually see the heights we saw. It wasn’t a tax fix, he didn’t “take loads out of the club”, there was nothing to see in the interest charged on the early debt and it wasn’t just clever accounting. We lost money just like we do now, just to a greater extent, but that man chucked money in every year to cover the shortfall and therefore let us carry on with top 8 premier league football and European adventures. The shit he got accused of, just because people didn’t take the time to understand what was actually happening, rather than just listening to the first thing they heard, was criminal. He should have a statue outside of the ground, instead his name got dragged through the mud and he ended his tenure on “bad terms”. If there is one lesson to be learnt it is that joe public shouldn’t be so quick to shout about the first theory that they hear, it’s often the wrong one.
