  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Give it a fucking rest eh ‘somebody’s moral expectations of someone are very different to the legal obligations you know that and I know that. 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

  6. 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

  10. Update from Neils Daughter Hi Horwich! Just letting you and the rest of wanderers ways know that my mums fundraiser has hit £5,000! It wouldn’t have been possible without all of you, so thank you so much. My dad is currently with us at home, he’s stable but still end of life. He doesn’t seem to be wanting to go anywhere else anytime soon, which is just his stubborn self summed up 🤣🤣.

  11. Ive seen a lot of posts of people being annoyed at the consistency of players kneeling in support of equality in society, it’s not civil rights It isn’t BLM it’s equality. Equality. so equality in sport. No not people getting better privileges as a player and being recognised for his skill and not because he’s a different colour Football is the most watched sport in the world, if the world world tunes in to watch Rashford, Kane, Ronaldo, Messi and the moment before, one person see These players take a knee and that provokes a thought, then it works. You can’t stop talking about issue because you’re tired of seeing it If you’re tired of seeing black men protesting for equality imagine how much black men are tired of seeing injustice for equality it’s a small thing to do to raise awareness Feel free to delete this or move it but I couldn’t sit back and not say anything

  12. Jake Wright was the defensive organiser (very aware of what’s going on, always talking, shouting, pointing) in our league one promotion year and is actually bit of a legend at Bramall Lane after his run of over 30 games without defeat I cannot think of a better player for you to bring in under the circumstances - well liked modest and sensible professional who you could build a defence around and I expect would also bring on your younger players Wish him success, hearty thanks and I hope he is as good for you as he was for the Blades

  13. @Cheese i have to say this to you, this is a very hot topic which some people won’t put their neck on the line , you will have people who for whatever reason will disagree with the knee, or not understand the condemning of the boo, and you know what that’s fine, it’s a minority and they leave themselves open to interpretation with their opinions. As a black man who works in football I know I can come across very opinionated on the subject and I get people are probably sick of me defending the knee, and outside looking in I know there are people on here thinking blah blah blah yawn yawn change the record Rudy, but in all honesty I don’t care, it feels a little lonely sometimes fighting a battle which sometimes feels on your own. I get frustrated even got to a point recently where I’ve not wanted to post or even go to a game. I know I’m not on my own and I know I’m not the minority but I honestly can’t salute you and a few others( @DazBob @Casino ) , on here enough for speaking sense, and speaking up. That’s what keeps me on here that’s what keeps me going to games. Felt weird having to explain to my kid sister what the monkey emojis mean, why people have a problem with skin colour, it’s 2020 ffs Some of your posts on this topic have made me proud to be a Black Wanderers supporter. “Woke” “virtue signalling” or any other of that bollocks, that is just a way of people trying to shut people up on a topic they either agree with or are sick of hearing about. You’re alright by me, it would be my pleasure to buy you a beer. And for what it’s worth coming off Social media, ignoring it, get on with football, this is what got said to basketballer Lebron James in America a few years ago. A news anchor on Fox News told him to shut up and dribble, because apparently when a issue strikes you and you’re a highly paid sportsmen you’re supposed to just get on with your job and ignore any form of abuse like you’re a sportsmen first and human being second. And to the people who are Tired of hearing about it, good, it ain’t going away, we’re tired of dealing with it.

  15. YKnow what I’m sick of having to make my point to people who will never change their minds As a black person I’m utterly embarrassed at some views on here, as a black wanderers fan I’m utterly ashamed at the small minority who decide to boo our own players over an anti racist stand Some people need to have a long hard look at themselves and their Stone Age views. I am fuckin done with the lot of it and I’m fuckin done with some of the posters on here

  22. I’ve proper had enough of it all now. Its a complete circus and total embarrassment. Not that we should care, but folk on the outside have had enough too and and sympathy is vanishing fast as our actions are beginning to affect them. Im bored to fuckin death of it all, every day and night there’s another event or some bullshit side show making us look even more fucked up than we already are. Weve currently got the thickest sounding möngs the town can offer stood on the club car park asking some coked up wally with a megaphone questions about putting ken Anderson in prison and can he get Big sam back. It’s fuckin draining the life out of me. FV, Boohoo or whoever sort this shit out for fucks sake so we can all just be normal for a bastard Day or two. It’s a fuckin shambles.

  24. Morning all Regularly read your forum to try and work out what is actually happening for you boys n girls. Boy you’ve had some s*** the last few seasons As Bristol City Fan middling years I have fond memories of various tussles with yourselves , and games over the years at all levels , including Wembley Great set of ‘proper’ football fans in all my experiences Also met many lads , and the odd lass, who were Wanderers , trapping the World following England All sound as a pound Wanted to say I have everything crossed for you , you fans , and that some light begins to emerge As for the rest of ‘The League laughing’ ....or indeed the Football World My advice is there will always be ***** , especially on Social Media who will laugh and goad - The Football World And Supporters of all sorts I’ve spoken to , or read are in fact extremely sympathetic , and hopeful that things will turn around , or at least stop sliding Please remember that - I know at this **** time it won’t help much , you want to see some sign of future , but please don’t concern yourselves with ***** who follow other Clubs The massive majority don’t laugh , they sympathise.... And the few who gloat ****** ******* Many Of you won’t recall , but we nigh on went to the wall in 1982 , I went to what was to be our final game at Newport, we survived , just but slid from Div 1 - 4 , ended up playing 16/17 year olds and a few freebies and fell to the bottom of Div Four Looking back the slow survival and then growth back (Ironically the Wembley game v you was probably a significant point) was one of the best and happiest periods of my 50 years of support, the hardcore fan base sticking by them and seeing a slow rebirth Hang in there Boys n Girls, everything crossed for you ’Wanderers Till You Die’ Always

  25. 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.

  26. Was Evatt an improvement on Hill ? Did we bring in decent players at start of last season ? Has Evatt tried to play good football ? Did we improve last Jan transfer window? Did we strengthen in summer ? For me all 5 are big positives, we are work in progress, Evatt himself is learning, but we are 100% heading in the right direction. Owners are great and increasing connection with fans. Evatt's interview after game yesterday recognised that the fans stuck with the team and him and that helped. It is hard to remember how far the club had fallen and the journey will be tougher and longer than some might like, look at Sunderland 30k for home games, never dropped as far as us but struggling to get out of this division. Instead of breaking our progress down to last 2-3 week look at 6 month gaps and we are moving very much in right direction. I back Evatt 100% to get it right in the longer run. I am equally sure that FV will back him and enable us to continue to progress. He will make mistakes and hopefully learn not to talk shit in interviews. At some point we may hit a level that he can not take us past but we are not there yet. Still do not think we have paid a transfer fee for a player, certainly not paying too wages in the division. The club seems to be in a good place and going in right direction get onboard and enjoy the journey it is miles better than last few years.

  29. Folk about moaned about the club's perilous financial position for several of the past few years. They've complained about how badly managed the club was and now that the current owners are trying to run it as a business, they're getting moaned at too. I think Ms Brittan et al have sat down and considered it for a long time to work out what's the most they can charge without pissing too many fans off, whilst also selling them as cheap as they can realistically afford to. That's why they're more successful in business than most of us. (Obviously we've some senior captains of industry on here, so that bit doesn't apply to you) This year's ticket is cheaper than last years. Last years ticket price could have got me a cheap week away all-inclusive somewhere warm This year's price won't get you a weekend in a caravan. It's all relative. At the end of the day an adult and an under-18 can watch games for the combined pittance of £11.91. Jesus Christ, they might as well open the doors for free and fuck off home until the money runs out.

  30. The EFL should issue a statement to say: "We deny Wigan Athletic permission to start the season. What is more we acknowledge and apologise for the mistake of our predecessors in opening the door to these smelly, scruffy cunts in 1978. They have added very little to Lancashire football or the wider game. It is a pleasure to have this opportunity to bin the bastards off. Believe."

  31. I’m about to go to sleep with the most peaceful, relaxed mind I reckon I’ve had in 3 years. Every day and night seems to have been spent arguing the toss about the club, worrying about the club and head getting completely frazzled with the daily sagas. Literally every single day something happened, a twist in the tale, a note from the chairman, a winding up order, a journalist banned, on and on and on...hour after hour pacing up and down my kitchen on my phone, sat at kids swimming on my phone, sat in the van at work during a storm on my fucking phone. Now its all over. Hardly seems real but what a fucking nightmare it’s been for us all. Not just the past few worrying days, weeks or months in admin. The whole sorry saga from the moment Eddie signed the club over. It’s been a fucking trauma and a journey unlike anything else I’ve seen in football, from the bizarre to the down right ridiculous. But we are still fucking here folks. We made it. We lived to tell the tale. And what a bloody tale it will be. Goodnight folks... it’s been emotional. Xx

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. Happy Sunday folks. Its official we have our club back. Inject those videos of players arriving back last night directly in to our veins. Mad to think it wasn’t so long ago there were videos of protests and the club was as as divided and toxic as it’s ever been. We were all completely drained of the day to day, sometimes hour to hour drama and demise that was unfolding before our very eyes. Actually dreading match day and seeing it as a chore was killing even the most ardent of supporters. Well it’s all over now people, get your feet up today, take the dog out, have a beer or slam an extra sugar in your tea. Weve done it. I posted similar on twitter but My Dad has always said to me no matter what depths we sink to,we always,always come back. It’s in our DNA. It’s in our history. Enjoy it lads and lasses, it’s been one fuck off horrible journey. 10 years of utter madness but Bolton are back.

  39. Disappointed a few I know but how would you be on a day like today? Brilliant sunshine in mid Winter - at 9am received just over $6K as my share of a football punters club kitty which we decided to shut down for the season after last nights results. At 11:48 I acquired my fourth grandson - Oliver. My daughters first child. At 12:12 I was informed that the worlds second biggest miner had decided to award me/us a 2 year service contract worth 7 digits. Walking football to look forward to tonight. Then I find out some bitter and twisted, intellectually challenged no mark from my home town thinks it funny to try to impersonate me and make out I am of the opposite sexuality to reality. Big fucking deal. If it gave a few of you a smile I am actually pleased about that. Today is not a day for frowning. Tra-la-la............................................................

  41. Development squad played Thursday Friday night / Saturday morning, our senior pros decide they won't play v Brentford BWFC make plans for the Dev Squad to play Brentford EFL block this on the ground of "Youth Protection" Game not rearranged for 3/4 days later, EFL say to play it a few days after season ends. Brentford can't fulfill that order and are awarded the game. Roll forward to Donny and by the above sequence of events, our Dev Squad can't fulfill a fixture. No case to answer. Maybe a fine for not letting doncaster know sooner, but the EFL created this loophole when they stopped the brentford game.

  45. What a load of over exaggerated shit. We’re still alive and we’re competitive. We’ve got 1 point from 3 which is more than some league teams. Yes the kids look knackered but if you’re telling me they’d rather go back to playing in front of their family and a few dogs on Saturday rather than 2,000 fans who will back then whether they win lose or draw them you’re mad. We’re in the shit; we all know we are. We’re holding things together by a thread, but we still had 2,200 fans in an away end backing the club for the afternoon. That’s all that matters. I want the takeover to happen, I want us to be competitive, but for as long as it doesn’t happen I will pay to watch these young lads play for Bolton. I don’t care if we lose, I will cheer a corner and free kicks like a goal and a point feels like we’ve won the league: If we’re in league 2 next season but have FV as owners then so be it: We’ll take thousands to Salford and show them what a proper club is all about. Just be patient and give the kids as much support as you can for now.

  46. Don’t think ever felt as proud to be a Bolton fan. 2 kids, the wife, peteski and my old man kicking and heading every ball at the end like it was the World Cup final. We are in it together folks, right to the motherfuckin end. I love this club.

  47. That was far and away the best atmosphere at Adams Park for an opening game. Your support was brilliant today and I really hope you go from strength to strength. It was a privilege to see your passion and commitment to your club in one of its darkest hours and I really hope it is rewarded and that you start to climb up again. All lower league club supporters empathise with you as we all understand we are a dodgy owner or two away from oblivion. You might not have many experienced players but your kids did you proud and if Zouma plays like that every week you have a real class defender for this level. Good luck

  48. Almost certainly the ale, but I'm on a train back to Birmingham drinking on my tod and can't help but well up when I see some of the images from today You know, when we were safe and secure in Premier League taking nothing numbers away (and I include myself in that) I totally underestimated what it was all about. Stood amongst my brothers and sisters today, shouting until it hurt. And there was shit loads of us. This is what is means, we're alive. I fucking love you all.

  49. 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.

  50. 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.
