Hi Smithills gent 

Bolton fans going into BarrowWays to troll them is one of the most embarrassing things I've ever heard of. How small-time have we now become?

Given the current climate I think it would be fitting to give the job to Phil Brown he would be our first black manager 🖤

Which ones?

And if its the two jokers I think you are on about, its not cheap keeping them

Point is that we have to pay them off now. Do we have the readies?

I caved and watched the Evatt podcast tonight as it now looks near enough confirmed, sprayed it all over the internet and my WhatsApp so it was time to see it fully myself.

Like majority of people who've seen it I'm hugely impressed, its quite rare you get to listen to a manager talk about how they see the game and their philosophy so it was a great insight. 

It's made me really excited, nervous but excited. If I have one reservation it's that I just know what the reaction will be if we hit a run of bad form or things dont click straight away and he carries on talking in the supremely self confident way he has, people are going to think we've got another Hill.

But I'm not dwelling on that, I'm focusing on the fact we're at our lowest ebb and managed to land one of the most interesting and exciting managers at our level. Cannot wait for next season to start, we get on a roll and there will be some huge days for us.

You have a point about that it may not click straight away, Wilder at Sheff Utd lost his first 3 or 4 games, still romped the league, sometimes a managers methods take time to bed in, patience maybe needed. If he gets us anywhere near Wilders Sheffield United, we will be going in the right direction.

I think we've got to go into this expecting to buy into it for a minimum of 3 years and taking the inevitable rough with the smooth.

I'm looking on it as brave from FV on one hand and also the only thing they could really have done if they want to progress - they could have played it safe and we could have had some stable seasons in L2 with A N Other manager or we go for someone who might actually start from scratch and build summat.

If it goes tits then at least it goes tits with us having a go at trying summat.

I think this guy needs to be given time, this is a huge gamble, and what we don't need is fans turning on him if we get off to a bad start, I like his philosophy on how he likes the game played, and sometimes it takes quite some time to get a squad together capable of playing his style, as long as we're nowhere near the non league trapdoor I'll be happy for him to mould us into a footballing side over time, and if that comes sooner rather than later it'll be a bonus.

Oh I agree, and I hope he is given that time. As always with things like this, the takeover, the days in court etc I take it for granted that everyone else in Bolton lives on here and social media. Was so taken aback when some of the blokes I go to home games with had no idea about what happened in the court appearances or who FV were literally weeks after the event.

Its same with this, they'll not know about the podcast or even know what a podcast is 😆 and if we go 5 without a win, middle of winter and he says "Brand Evatt" in an interview they'll go mental.

FV might find it cheaper to hire a hitman.

To be fair, I thought our fans showed remarkable patience last season. We all know how far we have fallen and the circumstances behind it. He’ll get the time he needs imo

He specifically mentioned Sheff United's way of playing as well didnt he. If nothing else hes a connoisseur of the game.

Kept thinking Vela and Clough would thrive in this system...

He wants busy players, players on the move, players passing and rertaining the ball, if the likes of Emmanuel, Crawford et al want to stay, they have to pull their socks up. 

Total opposite to the way that anti-football twat Parkinson plays the game. It doesn't matter what the calibre of player, they will play the way he wants them to. The key for me is what we do when we don't have the ball, get the fucker back quick, not this negative shit we have been used to, in lets wait for the opposition to score then its our ball back on the centre spot! Roll on Mr Evatt, exciting times ahead, i can feel it.

Its going to end up a Klopp-like cult of football schooling this, you'll end up sounding like a Scouser 😀

I’m mates with two of zachs best mates. Met them in Bali and stayed in touch. One messaged me Sunday asking about evatt. I said to him would Zach fancy it? He said absolutely he would love to come back. Even in league two! Read into that what you will.

Sounds a bit Everton School of Sciencey that! I think the world would fall off its axis if we got into a position where we were lording it over other teams for the style of football we play. I'm all for this.

Is he still on Forests books or released now? Wouldn't be surprised if a tape of his greatest hits has been brown enveloped to Evatts new office...

I spoke to Zach at a Forest Under23 game in February,  he said to me he would love to come back, but that the January rumour was Bollocks.

He's certainly an on the floor player. More suited to evatt than standing wide left whilst the ball gets twatted long and high into no man's land.

Still there as per @Leyther_Matt post. Made himself a fortune during that contract fair play to him. 
 

loan move to us would be superb for all concerned but I can’t see us paying enough of his wages to get him. Maybe a free the year after.

Whoever is posting on there using the name 'wanderersways' is an utter bellend.
