  5. 👍👍 Zico mentioned last night on the phone about him switching to the same web design and host that the supporters trust use, in between bits about his next holiday round the Caribbean.

  6. Don't know If anyone is aware of this - a very sad story but worth a mention to set the record straight We all know that there were 33 victims in the Burnden Disaster Well - sort of Back in the day ( March 1946 ) there was no such thing as post traumatic stress and counselling - you just got on with things - or at least you were meant to - that was the way things were in the aftermath of the war Well sadly Robert Jones aged just 34 years old who lived in Bark Street was so traumatised by events at Burnden that day he did not get on with it - he gassed himself The Coroner recorded a suicide verdict on 15th March - 6 days after the disaster and said this "Without seeking in any way to minimise the tragedy at Burnden Park , it is difficult to understand why it should have had such an effect on this mans mind " To me he is the 34th Victim

  8. We're being gaslit into mourning here, football fans absolute low lives as usual. It's a disgraceful decision, a unilateral decision compared to other sports. "They'll take it, they'll go watching their team any time anywhere anyway, fuck em." They've been advised the games can be played and they've decided not to. That's a heap of advice about fans' wishes, about money already spent, about staff already in place and they've said no. Talk about respect, there's none of that here.

Those who helped with fees, that were inevitably too much after the third appearance, please DM me... I'm paying you back one way or another I'm proud to be part of this family COYWM xxx

  10. Just under a year ago I bumped into an old friend in Tesco (booze isle). He told me his lad hadn't played a game in six weeks. His team had too many players, and they were picking 6 year olds 'on merit'. I couldn't believe it, and agreed to help him out until he qualified as a coach. They played their first game in November in a kit I purchased for them. We lost count of the score in a very heavy defeat at Moss Bank (I think). Today, I was almost overcome with emotion- they played the best football I've seen from 7 year olds outside of an academy. We played most of the game with two players less than our opponents, won 12-1, and could've scored 20. Six different scorers, and the other two came close. We passed, communicated, fought and were ruthless. A year ago, these kids wouldn't shout their own name. Never been as proud as a coach... An hour earlier I was coaching another set of 7 year olds who are too shy to shout their own name... Football; I fucking love it

  11. Yes - good point, he’s most certainly spreading the faith. Its already happening, but who would have thought a few years ago that a “YouTuber” would have so much influence. Whether you like it or not, young people for the next 20/30 years are going to reference Thogden as to why they follow the whites. I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, you can’t blame him for following the clicks, the sponsors, the money. And if that means him following the Big Games around the world, then why the hell not? He’s good at what he does. It’s going to set him up for life. I still maintain that his best and most Passionate videos are of the Whites. For anyone in doubt just look at his Forest video when we stayed up. I’m always quite open to an alternative view and often change my mind accordingly. But I’m yet to hear an alternative view that this is just a BOLTON fan that’s made it into the big time. Albeit in a way and manner that us oldies find hard to relate to. I find it hard to not like that story.

  13. This is another classic example of the ills of social media. This has nothing to do with cancel culture - it's to do with having the basic manners to show respect for a widely loved person of national and international significance who has just died. There just seems to be an undercurrent of people in society who want to pin "racism" or some other "ism" on everything that moves. It's very polarising and is in itself intolerance.

  14. Would never laugh at abuse of refs, but this topic reminded me of a time I took an u11 team to play Whelley Alexander in Wigan years ago. as was often the case, coaches reffed . Their coach was reffing and one little scrote of a player of his team was effing and blinding at the ref, that’s a “fucking joke ref “ “ are you fucking blind” etc , ref shouts at him, if you don’t shut up I’ll get Jason take you off doest listen, ref gives a throw in to us that this little lad doesn’t agree with, shouts out “ yer a nob head ref that was ours” Ref says “ right that’s it , Jason take billy off sub him for Charlie , had enough of his cheek “ little scrote then says “ aww Dad “! 😁

  18. Evatt makes mistakes, usually when he opens his gob, but by fuck he’s a quick learner. Last season, we lose that game and probably only have 10 men on the pitch at the end. But he’s gradually teaching this squad more than just kicking a ball about. Peterborough came to disrupt and aggravate, and they did it well. But we went toe to toe with the cunts and did them. A special mention for MJ, he doesn’t half put a shift in and he really got under their skin. Wins like that are the ones we could look back on and say “yeah, that’s why we got promoted”

  20. Add to that Heaton, Bradshaw, Egerton and Edgeworth - all GMCL. Been some fantastic junior cricket on show this season. We (Heaton) have literally 100s of kids down on a Friday night. Cricket is alive and well for youngsters in this area.

  24. They asked us for money years ago, lots of us donated. They asked us to attend a fixture when we had no game, so we did. We spent most of that game listening to sick chants about Nat Lofthouse and loads of anti-Bolton songs. They took great delight in Ken Anderson taking us towards the abyss. Fuck 'em, I hope they never come back.

  27. He's accumulated 7 assists in 49 appearances, with 3 of those assists in cup competitions against opposition from the league below. He's also scored 5 goals, with 3 of those goals in cup competitions against opposition from one and two leagues below.

  34. i enjoyed that. it was great to watch a proper battle fair play to evatt and co for instilling in the team the ability and belief that they can dig in and get results against teams like peteborough. Amazing how many whites fans are appearing everywhere now. we went for a pint after game in aspull usually me and a mate and perhaps a couple others turn up. A coiuple of families turned up kids in colours faces beaming with joy at the performace. The phoenix is rising. build it jerry and they wl come. coyfwm

  35. Last Sunday, I was at an event called the Armadale Cup as one of my grandsons was involved (note - he missed the 5th penalty in the shootout in the final after a 0-0 draw during the game, condemning his team to defeat. Last year he scored the winning 5th penalty in similar circumstances and was the hero. Football summed up right there). Standing in the crowd with my son watching the final were players and connections from many of the other clubs who had been involved in the tournament. One kid spotted BWFC tattoos about our person, points at us and, in a very loud voice says one word. "Thogden!". I asked him how he knew that name and he told me he watches all of the Youtube videos and 'quite likes' Bolton Wanderers because of awareness generated by Thogden. I suppose that should make us consider if Thogden is a good thing or a bad thing? Obviously nothing I would ever seek to watch but, if it is spreading the faith?

  42. If we are looking optimistically, we have already been thrown against the so called best teams in the division. And we have pretty much played well if not better against all of them, pressing well, have the better chances and dominating possession, but we have lost some games due to horrific individual mistakes at the back (sheff weds, plymouth)
