  1. Bit of a tale about Today which I think is well worth relaying.. my old man’s bday on NYD which was a milestone birthday for him so decided to take him in to the LoV today. A couple of weeks ago off the cuff I decided to email Sharon (or what I assumed was her email address) explaining he was a lifelong ST holder etc etc and anything she could do / any time spent with him would make his day. A couple of weeks went by with nothing. Eventually this week received an email from someone else at the club stating Sharon had received and read the email and to arrange a meet with her this afternoon. so took the old man down to reception at 2:30 to meet the girl who emailed me as requested. Took us up to the chairman’s suite and we were stood outside for a while him still unsure as to what the hell was going on. Eventually Sharon comes out and apologises as she “couldn’t get away from sir Alex” and welcomed us both as though she’d known us for years. Bit of a chat ensued and he’s bowled over that she’s made the effort. He then apologises and says we have to make our way back round to the LoV to see the KO. Instantly she says No! “ I’ll find you seats in the exec box with me” shouts her laccy over and pretty much says they’re friends of mine, find them some seats to watch the match in the box. At HT come in to the chairman’s suite and we will have a brew. So ended up spending the whole game in her (distant) company, made us feel so welcome. Had more than enough time for us. it may have meant nothing to her in the grand scheme of things but will last my old man a lifetime. The woman is absolute class from top to bottom and I can’t imagine our club in better, more thoughtful or considerate hands.

  2. Might be an idea to let's just watch a football match without all this attention seeking bumcbuffery.

  3. My youngest is 6, it was his first night game and he was bouncing. He's got his first season ticket next year. All I heard last night was 'Cosgrove is a knobhead'. 😆 My eldest his had a season ticket for a few years, he is autistic but loves coming to the match. He cried when Collins equalised, just sheer emotion, that's the experience you only got following a team. Can't wait to take them both next weekend, first trip to Wembley for them, I just hope we get over the line and they get to experience what we did last April.

  4. Echoing sentiments above, cant express how emotional that all felt yesterday. FV, the current squad and Ian Evatt must have gone to bed last night thinking fuck me what a club this is. My dad said to my lads coming out that we've always been a family club and it couldn't be truer. We have always seemed to made a connection with players hence they always want to come back and speak about us warmly. (Bar the odd few ) On the back of nearly losing our club and the horrendous KA years, yesterday was the cherry on the top, and just makes you realise just how much we all had to lose. After a difficult few weeks it was great to put a smile on the old fellas face as well x

  5. just got the call. Got the job! Sweet, sweet relief. 12 contract, time to build up my new business with my other directors, I've never been so pleased to take a pay drop!! This year! This for all the well wishers, means a lot and I can now go back to getting some sleep and looking forward. Too early for a beer?!

  7. It’s a long read, but some of you might be interested.. On Sunday 10th April 2022, my 81 year old dad, Dave Vickers, will embark on his last tour, having been the official BWFC Tour Guide for 16 Years. It was a never a job for Dad, more a hobby, a pleasure, a pastime which allowed him to recall treasured memories and indulge himself into the history of Bolton Wanderers. To the delight of many customers 1 hour tours often took a lot longer as he ensured every photo, every trophy, every room, every stand low and high into the gantry were visited and stories relating to their importance were shared with detail, knowledge and passion which took fans back in time to relive some famous nostalgic bwfc moments. Dad often used to receive thanks usually verbally and occasionally through cards and emails to the club. One example came from George and June Quinn. “Our tour guide was Dave, he made us feel very welcome and we were treated to the most friendly and interesting tour. All parts of the stadium we saw were most impressive which together with Daves vast knowledge and friendly manner, made it a very enjoyable and memorable day” (30/01/2008) Dads love of BWFC goes back 75 years, when as a 6 year old in 1945 he made his first visit to Burnden Park. He was taken by his dad, Jack Vickers, who has an extremely important claim to fame. Jack, while living next door to Nat Lofthouse on Thicketford Road, took Nat to his first ever Bolton game and from there Nats lifelong love affair with BWFC began. Dad has continued to follow the Whites throughout the decades recalling special memories from the teams of the 70s, the renaissance years under Rioch, the famous European visits under Big Sam and the exciting current Era as Ian Evatt looks to bring BOLTON back to where they belong. He has passed this BWFC passion down a further 2 generations and now attends the game with his son Craig and 3 grandchildren Jack, Adam and Charlotte. Dad will really miss sharing his love and passion of BWFC with others on his tours, but now is the right time for him to finally hang his boots up. Dad is looking forward to celebrating his retirement and tributes will be officially paid to him at a future game.

  8. Embarrassed. It’s not my money, I just made the contact. BUT, it just reinforces the fact that this club is in the hands of bloody good folk who care and have a lot of class. Proud to be a Wanderer, indeed.

  9. Its been mentioned elsewhere but lets try and keep all this respectable. A nice mention before the game and a clap on either the minute the game got stopped or the poor fellas age. Nothing more needs to be done. No playing in black, no songs or chanting. Lets keep it right. We arent scousers and we are not grief junkies. All about dignity, respect and class.

  10. My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers. last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yesterday evening and allowed my Aunt in for a short while to say goodbye , she was so covered up and him in such a way will never know if he knew, but my aunt said he did and took comfort from it. None of his kids have seen him since last Thursday and can’t even be with their mum now. Not writing this for sympathy, very few know me and I know most on here are decent enough without needing to say anything. writing this to firstly echo how brilliant the staff Bolton are, cannot express how fantastic and hard working they are while remaining compassionate and patient. Special breed of person . Thank you to all posters on here who work there, for all I know you were the one that sat and held his hand in the absence of his family secondly, from reading not many do, but, if you think the virus doesn’t kill but rather underlying conditions do, be in no doubt this virus killed him, he wasn’t going to die if he got flu or a cold. thirdly, if you can’t imagine what we are going through, if you go out and ignore the rules you’ll be risking putting someone else through this and maybe even your own family will experience it or yourself and believe me, it’s fucking grim so stay home. Its also a better place for me to just write this than Facebook etc so thanks for obliging me in that.

  12. Just about all of the other threads are very understandably very negative and that's my over-riding emotion since Saturday too. What a bunch of bottlers. Any year Bolton Wanderers spend out of the top two divisions is a year too long. We are now going to spend a sixth consecutive season in the lower divisions. Slowly but surely we're escalating towards the full decade we endured in the 80s and early 90s. However ... taking the long view, are there reasons why a further year in League 1 might prove to have been the right thing? 1. This team bottles big games. In the Championship there are big games far more often. Quite apart from debating the balance of the squad and the quality in the side they simply seem to lack to the big game mentality. The Championship would surely have chewed up and spat out our lily-livered playing staff. 2. Ipswich are an outlier. It's not often promoted teams thrive at tier 2 these days. You have to get a foothold and scrap your way to safety. That would be a problem linked to (1) but how many of the current squad can we honestly say are Championship ready in terms of playing standard alone? Going back to the late 1980s and early 1990s, we would not have been ready for tier 2 with a forward line of Storer/Philliskirk/Reeves - as much as they did good things for us. However we were ready with Walker/McGinlay/Lee. Things sometimes just need to evolve a bit more before they align. 3. There are scores to settle in League 1. We still want that win at Bloomfield Road (hopefully while preserving our own long unbeaten home run against the orange wankers). Then there is Wigan. That run of misfortune v them has to stop. Next season we get at least two more shots at it. I recall the double over Wigan in 92/3 when Bruce got us promoted. It felt like the right way to be saying goodbye to them (for what proved to be more than a decade). A much lesser local issue but Stockport fans are a mouthy lot and like to point out they've never lost at the Reebok. Be nice to sort that. 4. Combining the themes of derby matches and whether we were Championship ready this year - I'm not so sure I'd have fancied having to play Burnley, Blackburn and PNE with this present lot. It could have been carnage. Hopefully we will come to view our failure this season as a necessary evil as we develop/evolve further so that when we do hit the Championship we are properly equipped.

  13. The only good thing about the entire day yesterday was before the game when we were watching the players warm up. Our Head Kitman came over to get my attention and pointed at my lad - then threw him an official play-off final first team shirt signed by the entire squad. My lad was absolutely fucking beaming. He felt like the luckiest kid in the stadium. That'll be our only lasting memory of an otherwise miserable day.

  15. Right - I've got a bit of good news here. And maybe something to read if you're down or struggling. I've not mentioned it on here previously, but I've been off work since just before Christmas with mental health problems. Quick synopsis - break of of relationship, dead dad, stressful job and trying to complete a masters got well on top of me and I completely broke down. I couldn't eat, sleep or get out of bed. I thought about suicide every day and couldn't get the thought from popping into my brain and ruminating on it. Even if I knew in my heart of hearts I'd never follow through with it. I genuinely didn't think I would ever be able to recover from this episode and that my life was over. Fast forward a couple of months and I'm ready to return to work. In fact I'm really looking forward to it. I'm exercising again - going out and enjoying life and am optimistic about the future. If you're going through a shit time (and all of us do at times) then just know that it DOESN'T last forever (even if it feels that way right now)..... If anyone's struggling and needs a chat - you can always DM me. Always! 💪👍

  17. I will be far from alone but fuck me Im missng the match. Home but more Importantly away. I miss the pre match tension that starts days sometimes weeks before a big day out. Knowing what your wearing ages before, debating which trainers and the weather conditions. I miss the night before, that moment you finish work having thought about nothing else all day. Nip in the local on the way home for a pint to take the edge off. You tell yourself dont get too giddy its a big one tomorrow. Few cans at home and get all your clobber ready. Cans in the fridge. I miss spending all night tossing and turning like a kid on xmas eve. Waking up with full on anxiety, couple or nervous shits and force some breakfast down. All you want is a can. I miss checking my pockets 300 times, tickets, money, phone, tickets, money, phone....(gear ) I miss being on the station platforn at daft o'clock, standing out like a sore thumb with a sack of cans while other folk are waiting with coffee on their way to work or somewhere much more civilised. I miss the journey, train or coach, with all the characters you havent seen since the last big away, all the different scenarios off the day whizzing round your head, everyone full of it and in fine form. I miss being on your 5th can at 10am I miss that moment you realise its gonna be 'one of those days' ...when every mad fucker past and present is out. I miss the pre match boozer, seeing fellas you only ever see at distant corners of the globe, handshakes and hugs like long lost friends, even though you're struggling to remember their name. All the tales, all the craic, all the chants. I miss the old bill wandering through with their cameras telling everyone to get to the match. I miss that walk to the ground as the fresh air hits, time to sober up and sort your head out. I miss the sound of police dogs, helicopters and the smell of burger vans. I miss the stewards patting you down and the clunking sound of the tursntiles. Theres always some lad being told hes too pissed to get in. I miss walking on the concourse to a scene of chaos, youths ballooning about, old boys singing old songs, the clamour for a quick pint before kick off I miss walking up the steps with our fans already in full voice I miss that buzz when the teams come out, bit of tickertape flying about and the players heading over to a packed away end, everyone singing and together. Hairs standing on end as you belt out wanderers all together in unsion. I miss thinking this is why we do what we do. I miss the half time queues for luke warm piss. I miss smoke bombs and pyrotechnics. I miss the sheer ecstasy and pandemonium when we score. Grabbing the person next to, whoever it is. I miss topling down stairs, getting crushed under bodies or dragged off a fence by overzealous stewards. I miss that deafening sound and segregation line charging when they score. Watchin their fans goad us and climb over netting. I miss taking it all personally. I miss the argy bargy afterwards, police dogs, police horses, "get back get back" being screamed by police in riot gear. I miss the delcline in mental state throughout the day. I miss getting home 24 hours after leaving the house. I miss not knowing the score till dinner time the next day. I miss feeling like death for a full week afterwards and vowing thats me done for the season Fuck me I miss it. I know you all do too folks. When the next one comes, its gonna be the away day of all away days. COYWM

  18. Not a particularly prolific poster on here I know, but I've been here for a good few years now and I must say, there's recently been an increase in people taking offence at what would be previously assumed "pub humour" and even well used and accepted phrases and sayings getting people all sulky. Sort yourselves out you massive fucking bumders. It's all good. Very very rare that the line gets crossed on here as far as I can tell.

  19. Pompey sack Cowley then get in a rookie being Mousinho who gets the job done in his first full season with loads of new players none of this "they need time to fit the style... they'll be better next season" like our excuses with new signings. Sunderland get smashed by us 6-0 hire Alex Neil go up the same season because he knew how to win under pressure, Ipswich sack Paul Cook hire rookie manager McKenna completely transcends them with the exact same players who all needed a kick up the arse. People can say "who are we going to get?" & "be careful what we wish for" but let's not act like we weren't competing amongst these teams who've now left us behind. We battered Sunderland, Ipswich 5-2, we even beat Ipswich again when McKenna had took over, we tailed Wednesday/Plymouth, we were well ahead of Pompey last season in terms on/off the pitch in fact we beat them twice in a week when they turned up to our place manager-less looking in dire state, we've finished above Oxford in what? three seasons straight? yet all them teams have left us behind. They've all had to go through managers whether sackings or losing them higher up, Evatt's loyalty is admirable & the stability is what we have needed but it also could be holding us back from taking that next step.

  20. 30k is an outstanding effort really. 10 day turnaround, ticket prices especially for families prohibitive, cost to get down there is ridiculous, many will have treated last years visit as their day out. I’d say 30-32k is the realistic top end of our fan base so a really good effort by all

  22. Thanks for all the well wishes folks, my old man read every single one. Hes still a bit in shock with it all, worried he could've done more etc which is natural I suppose. Hes going to sort something on the remembrance group later and Ill email the club. Roy actually played for Bolton in the 60s as he liked to tell my kids every week He was an entertainer by trade, comedian and organ player. Played The Stanley Arms in Blackpool which was the start of the Ma Kellys empire. Regularly played at BWSC events when we had meetings over this way. He did a gig at the opening of McGinlays in the 90s too. Roy Rolland the stage name, Roy Halliday proper. Just a few details folk might be interested in anyway. Love to all x

  23. So. This time Iast year. I was a wreck. Youngest was here, I was crying all the time, lonely but had a fake smile plastered on my face. Fast forward 12 months and a lot has happened. It's been fucking hard but I can honestly say I am the happiest I've ever been. Other than having my children. Thank you for listening to me and offering advice. You may be a bunch of knobheads but you are a cracking bunch.

  24. Well what a fucking experience that was. Feel like Ive just been to a parallel universe and back in the matter of 6 hours. Chaos in the stands, match suspended, last minute pitch carnage, a random punch up in their end, some old dude running about on the pitch on his own, racist abuse and tremendous stand against it, penalty saves, lads lay flat on their backs covered in blood, lads doing klinsmans on the pitch, lads being sick in the middle of a goal celebration, winds that strong goal kicks were going straight over the stands, torrential rain, blokes in shorts and T-shirts... Choose life Choose Bolton Wanderers.

  25. Right then, I watched it live on Sky. Frightened the life out of the missus and half the fucking estate when Sarce scored. Swigging Flensburgers like a madman then the second went in and it was over to celebratory Moscow Mules. Pissed as a rat by midnight singing out on my balcony with the BWFC flag on display (some on here have proof! 😄). Quietly sitting around recovering on Sunday, the dawn of realisation started to set in. Absolutely remarkable what the club has achieved. Not just the players, owners, management but most of all our magnificent loyal supporters. That Morecambe day was pivotal. As others have said, a few of the squad suddenly would have realised what this club means on that day. European Super League? Fuck off. BWFC are a prime example of what football is about and don't you ever forget it. Proud.

  26. I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single word. When she said ‘we’ll meet again’ I lost it and don’t think I’ll recover for a long time. Lost.

So why don’t you lay off patronising folk Chris and keep this beeno chat to another forum or chats with your mates. Folk are suffering cos the club they love is dying and between you and your patronising and fanny5 and his bleating his incorrect opinions almost rhythmically it’s getting on folks nerves. Some folk have no idea about legal obligations either. You do as do I but ask me to change a plug I’ve no idea doesn’t give anyone the right to patronise me a treat me like an idiot rant over but please just wind your neck in

  29. Pulling our current shit show of a government up for the absolute shit show they've precided over isn't depressing. Speaking and fighting for change with a proper plan and backing the people to do it isn't depressing. Blindly backing the most corrupt and inept government in our history is 100% depressing. This weird little conservative little Englander bullshit shit that's led us off a cliff edge is depressing. Imagine backing this lot then all of a sudden jumping into bed with Nigel bloody Farage and his dogmatic politics. Now that is depressing.

  32. My take on mental health issues: in November 2019 I was diagnosed with a condition, Ataxia, which affects around 10,000 in the UK, there are different versions and strains, the one I have is Sensory Ataxia, I was given 12 months to live, during tests and scans into the condition I was diagnosed with Small Cell Lung cancer and started chemo in March 2020, the start of lockdowns, believe me my head was in bits but I kept it pretty much to myself, I know I put stuff on FB when I was having the chemo and the words of hope from people was amazing, kept me going. I got the all clear in February 2021 from the cancer, the Ataxia was doing it's best to destroy my Central Nervous System rendering me almost unable to walk at all. On top of this I was told not to go in work as I was too vulnerable, work from home. Again my head was in bits, stuck at home day after day, at first my mates would ring or call round for a brew, that stops as they get bored, I didn't see anyone except my wife and daughter and her kids, I was drinking more and more and felt more and more depressed. My consultant said "we are winning because you are still here". >>I went to Salford Royal on Saturday afternoon (yesterday) for more tests and again he was pleased to see me, next week I have my 5th dose of chemo because the cancer came back in March this year and the chemo started again, my brain is producing poisonous cells that are destroying my Nervous System, the chemo and steroids etc are doing their best to counteract everything, again he said "you really really shouldn't still be here". So for me I think I have handled my mental health reasonably well apart form the bout of heavy drinking, oh and I start a new job om 8th August which is also contributing to my mental health recovery. People are different so they react and act to handle it in their own way. Sorry for the long post

  33. And as for this tiresome bollocks about pathways in our last two tournaments, do people not realise theres a reason we got those pathways? We avoided groups of death becasue we won every single game in qualifying. What should Southgate do, say nah we want to play some big boys and ask for a harder route? We didnt waste fuck all, we got to the semi of a world cup and within 3 shit penalties away from winning the euros. We beat anyone put in front of us, and didnt lose a game in the euros. Fuck me we stumbled our way to a semi in italia 90 and euro 96, but folk wank themselves senseless over them. Think we need to get a petition going, we want our group changing for Qatar. We want Brazil, France and the harlem fuckin globetrotters first up, so all our negative Nellies cant moan the moment we lose a final.

  37. 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

  38. The Food Hall has opened at Bolton Market. Had a mooch around. Didn’t buy anything but it both looks and smells good. Various stalls with a variety of foods and a small bar. I’ve said previously, that side of town is looking up. Now sat outside the Octagon with a glass of red. There are worse places in the world. 😊

  41. Just catching up with news on here, been a shit week, brother-in-law (Bolton fan, season ticket holder) passed away last weekend. Pissed up tonight and a bit emotional. 3 points tomorrow for him will do nicely. Don't want to be dealing with any more negative shit, so I'll not be on here if we lose. It's going to be very tough tomorrow without some key players, hope this is taken into account before folk start piling in with doom and gloom and criticism. BWFC should be our happy place to go to when times are shit. And if it doesn't go our way it's not the end of the world, just remember that before you start on Evatt, Vic, Maghoma, Taylor, Coleman or whichever player takes your fancy, all of them will be going out there to do the best for the club we love.

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.
