Baronesses coments

Recommended Posts

All this talk of demonstration surely the best demonstration we could show the football world is our show of support for bolton wanderers, there is a good offer on for the wba game so there's no excuse for not getting down on the night. I've got 4 season tickets I'll get 4 tickets for the game 2 adults 2 kids anyway who can use them let me know and you can have them. Let's all turn up and show any prospective owner what this clubs all about. Everyone has a part to play Iles and the Ben should be getting behind the club, that's bolton wanderers not Ken Anderson. Let's get behind the team from the first minute to the last anything after that is up to you. The players to be fair to them have consistently given 100% in most games so I would expect a good atmosphere would bring out the same. Parky needs to set up to win the game, 2 up top like the second half against Walsall, the players do have ability play to their strengths and let's have a go. If he doesn't agree then feel free to fuck off because a lot of the bad feelings and apathy is down to his style of play, if we get beat then so be it but let's have a go. Ken also needs to get real be realistic with the price for the club I don't begrudge him a earner but let's not be stupid. Plus the ticketing for the remaining games could and should be brought down to realistic levels, nobody his coming and I know he's done deals before which have been snubbed but I'm sure if the team started playing more on the front foot then maybe more would come. Anyway for me this is back to the walls stuff atm and if these idiots on twitter really do care about the club then here's your chance to prove it. We will only move forward by getting behind the club I'm sick of the apathy we need a bit of bulldog spirit which Nat tapped into the 80's with lifeline, his speech on the pitch at half time against Charlton (I think) will always live long with me. Ken will eventually be gone throwing tennis balls at him won't make a bit of difference hopefully bolton wanderers will be.

I think Mr Grey was relating to Amir and Vernon with this comment.

Amir - possibly back at Utd.

Vernon - always been a Bolton fan as far as I'm aware. And was seen at games outside the EPL on many an occasion prior to the EPL success. Don't remember there being any link to him being a Utd fan. But I could stand to be corrected.

Vernon seems to be into American football now according to his social media

It was Charlton.

I remember they were few in number but we're trying to chant over him and make it difficult for him to speak.

He slapped them down beautifully, without swearing, and got even more reaction from us all.

Could do with him now.

Do you think that they may be in a position to genuinely make a positive impact on the situation?

I'm not looking to gripe at all, as anyone is entitled to an opinion. It's just that nothing changes.

Could they possibly be in a position to get genuine high worth folk together for example, maybe to look at a takeover.

Just chucking it out there, as the only way to get Ken away is to have a group or individual genuinely interested in buying him out.

I aint got a clue, i only know about her knowledge of our club which impressed me

He's always been more into American football, but he's always been a Bolton fan

He was more involved during the PL days because he was pally with Gartside who loved him and got him involved with the club whenever he could, including getting advice from his American footy team on recruiting and coaching kids (they even employed one of their coaches after he recommended them)

He probably couldn't name most of our players these days and he goes watching more NFL and rugby than Bolton, bet he's definitely not some closet utd fan

Mine.

No, his. Definitely his. Shit, that was close.

Anyway, when's the bloody thread title getting sorted. "Baronesses coments"? When we getting the missing M. Or U, come to think of it. Any chance of getting it sorted.

3 options if it helps - first two are quickest

1. Find an M and make it "Baronesses comments"

2. A U could work, "Baronesses come nuts"

3. Sack off the baronesses bit and go full blown "People you've had a piss next to (called Tony Knowles)"

Great post mate, but to be pedantic, Nat’s speech was against Shrewsbury when they drubbed us 4-1.

1. Great post but, to be critical, I'd rather you take mates with you who don't actually attend (or even support BWFC) Offering your four tickets to folk that might actually attend anyway isn't going to help in any way, shape or form.

2. I assume Hull City doesn't figure in 'most'

Struggling to get anyone interested over this way atm, I have someone in mind one of our crowd from way back, I saw him last Saturday and forgot to mention it to him.

Back on December 11, 1982, Wanderers hosted Charlton Athletic at Burnden Park and were in a serious financial state.

John McGovern’s side won the game 4-1 to move up into 19th place in the old Division Two but it was what happened at the half-time interval that supporters still talk about to this very day.

Lofthouse strode on to the pitch to make an impassioned speech to the terraces, asking for people to dig deep and prevent the club from going under. He also marched out on to the car park on the Sunday morning to rally the troops before and after the game.

Was that when Alan Simonsen played for them?

I thought it was Charlton, not totally lost it yet.
