  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. See the holier than thou nob heads are out in force once again. Sitting there watching ifollow on your dodgy fire sticks slagging fans that were there. You're the fuckin M0ngs. Last minute goals on the back of an utterly shit game with 2.3k fans backing us all the way is why we do it. If you dont like it fuck off and watch Rugby or summet you sad cunts.

  6. 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 🤣🤣.

  8. @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.

  10. 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

  11. Said it before and I'll say it again, don't often comment on the football side of the forum as I'm not as football knowledgeable as you lads (well some of you 😁) but as a season ticket holder since 14 years old I've been there for the wonderful 90's rise and European days and then stuck it out, same as you all, for the grind that has been the last several years. I won't lie, it has been a genuine grind at times but Evatt and this team have made me fall back in love with going to the game again. Consistently excited about the next game to come and its fucking ace. Loved today again, a real feeling of togetherness throughout the squad, staff, owners and fans. I know everyone thinks their club is the greatest, but you don't know the true ups and downs and love of a club if you've not been part of this!!! And yes, I've been drinking heavily since the game. Enjoy your victorious evening fellow whites!!

  12. Ive honestly never known such an overreaction to about 3 kids throwing bottles of pop and James McClean having some screwed pie wrappers thrown at him after openly goading our fans in a derby match. Ive seen one smokebomb/flare. That isn't fucking trouble. Shit goes on like this at every ground in the country with any form of atmosphere. Talk about making an issue out of absolutely fuck all. Fantastic work by the club on these prices. This IL block issue shouldn't detract from that but fully grown adults, families and responsible season ticket holders being treated like naughty fucking school children is because a few kids act the goat 200 yards away is ridiculous. Who is Neil Hart to tell me I cant buy my son a season ticket next to me? Or warn my Dad about his behaviour? My Dads been a season ticket holder for kicking on 50 years yet this season hes been told he might not have seat if some kid throws a bottle. Like Ive said earlier Ive not any trouble in my block since it used to kick off with stewards re standing about 15 years ago, yet we are being told we are scum bags who need to behave or block is closing? Other clubs embrace their vocal support. Our club is alienating it and tarring normal fans with a litterally 6 people that have thrown things or set a smoke bomb off. Absolutely fucking pathetic. Thanks for cheap tickets but Id rather pay more and not be treated like a cunt.

  13. Nah it’s ok to: Support the knee & not like what he posted Yet not want him strung up When I was a teenager I sung Munich songs and wore Bolton badges with red hands on. Now I think it’s a dick move Stop the petty point scoring you nobs Only on WW could an ancient racist comment by a player turn into folk trying to make a point against those who don’t like racism 🤦🏽‍♂️

  15. right, my Ipswich story first off, I absolutely gurantee 100% swear on what's left of my folks lives that this is true, ask my brothers, or mates, if you ever meet them in the aftermath of the barry knight debacle, we're all licking our wounds on the bwfc rivals bit as was the norm them days, ipswich fans came on giving it the large, dirty northern c�nts, got what you deserved etc i took it personally so go for a mooch on their section loads of them on there "i'm a lifelong fan me, can't get tickets for wembley, gutted, beg beg beg" so I gets this idea I sign up a fake hotmail and rivals account called "portman_dave" go on there and say I'm a lifelong fan too, got 4 tickets but mate has dropped out, 2 going spare, I want them to go to REAL fans, no JCLs, so email me telling me why you think you should have them hour later i login to hotmail and i have loads of mails, loads spend my dinner chuckling to miself as I read how they met bobby robson on their 5th birthdy, pictures with terry butcher as a kid, you name it, they'd done it one bellend tries telling me he's that hardcore he went to Grimsby away on a Wednesday night with about 200 other hardy souls, his email account is @hull.ac.uk - clearly at Hull uni, clearly not that hardcore then one guy mails me this proper sob story - in the past 12 months his wife has left him, took the kids, lost his job, stuggling to make ends meet, couldn't get to the games that season so missed out on vouchers blah blah blah and leaves me his mobile number 07980 whatever so I have this other idea I mail him back and tell him he can have them for free, i'm quite affluent, his story touched me, I'll call you later with details I then mail hull uni lad and say "grimsby away, wow, that's commitement, they're yours mate if you want them, call me later on 07980 whatever" end of work I log back in, have mails from them both telling me i'm a right bastard I am and how could I do that to a proper football fans so I mail them both back saying "now you know how it feels to get shafted you cunts, come on you whites" had a massive wank right after, it felt good

  18. 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.

  21. Grey = Putin: first of all piles in. Doesn’t go his way but continues by firing cheap shots and making unfounded claims. Rudy = Zelensky: holding firm with the weight of popular support behind him. Offering to hold talks with Putin. Dazbob = NATO: Standing up and making his feelings very clear. Mick Brown = Many Russians: of the red persuasion; hoping to transfer Putin somewhere else and replace him with something better. Marc505 = The US airforce*: flying around nearby, but you don’t hear anything from him. Who is Boris? * he’ll tell you which make and model.

  22. Speaking of taking the kids to the match - my daughter gave me her CV to proof-read a few weeks ago, and under the 'Personal Interests/Hobbies' section, she'd put "I love going to watch Bolton Wanderers with my dad and little brother". I am happy to admit I cried a bit. 🤍

  23. Well what a day. Up at 7.00 , thought about knocking on for Jeep as I strolled past his gated abode. Early morning rattler from Howfen. Met Early Dart on the train , grabbed a coffee at Piccadily, plenty of Wanderers Fans mooching about waiting for the 9.30 to Shrewsbury. As soon as it turned up grabbed a couple of table seats , Ashbourne Street Market Stall , Pensioner (sputnik)Stan , Pinocheo's Dad , Grump Bat , Mr Smith, Woody and young Phileas Fogg in attendance. Train was packed but with mostly vintage fans . Boltons youth unwilling to get out of their pits at an ungodly hour. First pit stop in Shrewsbury was the Bulls Head , doors were shut but unlocked (schoolboy error from the landlord) . " Are you open ? " " I wasn't, but you lot look like you need a drink " Excellent beers flowed . Moved onto the ancient Three Fishes , after deciding to forego a Spoons breakfast. Turned out to be a good decision. Devoured double egg , home made chips and slices of delicious ham. Locals a friendly bunch went above and beyond welcoming us , within 40 mins Ashburner St got an invite to a swingers party. Moved onto The Wheatsheaf , as soon as we got through the doors the management locked the doors . ( Bolton's Youth had started to desend on the town). Turns out the pubs have a watts app group. We pitched up in a corner spot ( felt sorry for the couple sat trying to avoid eye contact whilst supposedly have a quiet Saturday meal ). A few man's best friends knocking about. Cockapoo named Lemmy. Couldn't resist it , whilst it's female owner was oh a toilet break offered the husband a fiver he accepted it !! The look on her face when she returned as he explained the situation was a joy to watch. Pub was in uproar . Turns out it was a neighbours dog. Fiver and dog exchanged again. Shrewsbury is a great drinking town but it's a bloody route march to the ground . On route found The Bell View ( cash only) , resulting in Early Dart negotiating how much of a pint he could purchase with the few coins in his wallet. (3/4 pint ). Onto the stadium, great atmosphere, Wanderers fans in full voice . First half both sides cancelled each other out . Not good but nice to achieve 0-0 at half time. Half time presentation on the pitch to the legendary Tony Kelly from the Wanderers Remembrance Group . A visibibly moved Mr Kelly a credit to our great club . The guy has been through a very tough couple of years. Bumped into Jeep and Mikkey D ( not the famous Motorhead drummer) Back to the football , Wanderers came out looking to attack more . Vela was being a nuisance all over the park for Shrewsbury. It was nice to see alot less passing the ball amongst our defenders and keeper. As the clock ticked on , I convinced myself that a draw was a good result. Then the ball smashed into the net , a sublime one touch followed by a rocket of a shot . The place went mental, players jumping into the fans . This is the moments we all live for . The rain sodden disappointments of Fleetwood and Accrington forgotten in an instant. Limbs everywhere at full time . Bumped into Mr Kelly as I walked out , the grin on his face once again proved " once in never out ". Back to the Bell View , walk back interrupted by a phone call from home , " have you bought a bloody dog ? " The joys of social media !!!!! Got settled into the Bell View . Soon packed with Bolton fans good atmosphere. Away Win , last minute goal , it doesn't get any better . Even Grumpy Bat had a smile on his face whilst in a Rocking Chair looking like a modern day Cyril Fletcher. Mr Smith had battled on for the day but was not ready for another route march to the station for the 7pm train. Not 1 taxi available in Shrewsbury. A few good souls stopped with him and eventually got the 9pm. The rest of us set off , arrived at the station. No sign of Ash !!! Looks like he took up the earlier invite !!! Train back was rammed but the journey flew by . Bolton Youth in great voice. Roll on next Saturday.

  25. Great final away day . Sun shine and the Rattlers ran on time . Up early 6.09 from Bolton. Ashburner St worse for wear ( only left the Bee Hive at 01.00hrs). The Shark , poised to tick another ground off ( done well over 92). Darwens finest and "arry" in tow . Pinocheo's Dad +1 , Happy Bat, (retirement suits some folk), Woody and Mr Smith . Smooth change overs at Crewe and Birmingham saw us arrive 9.50. Taxi to Spoons . Full English with black puds ( with English mustard) St George's Day !!!!!. 11.45 Mr Wood and Embankment taxi to Deya Brewery, fantastic venue, brilliant beers .Plenty off here in attendance. Back into the centre ( those taxis made some cash off us ). Met up with Sputnik ( better half in tow at Old Restoration.( needs knocking down crap ale) . Onto the Kemble Brewery pub once again choca with W,ws posters. Great to finally meet Vera Lyn insisted on a pic with Ashburner St . Jeep holding court in one corner of the pub and Swedish Al in the rear with "our boys" ( his description not mine) . Hopefully he will return to the fold next season at some point . Fantastic pub will definitely visit again. Last game so no rush to the ground( 1 more for the road) , wandered there with Jeep. Arrived 15.16 , had to bloody knock on . Enjoyed the game , great to see faces young and very old . Sorted a lift back to the station for Mr Smith so missed their goal. Into the Midland ,bit of banter with young barmaid noticed a guy checking on me " is that your boyfriend ?" She replied " no its my bloody dad " Squeezed onto the platform for the 18.00., AHM in full attendance. Back to Brum , made the connection train . Unlike - Jeep , Mr Smith ,Shark , Bat , Ashburner St . Very unprofessional arriving on the platform as the doors shut !!!! Back to Bolton, nipped into the Achari ( best curry in Bolton) . Taxi to Howfen ( White Lion ) to watch Tyson swing that upper cut . GOOD Night !!!!!!! Roll on next season. It's going to be mental . Keep safe through the summer . Away days ,it's what we all do and we luv em !!!!

  29. Blimey. my lad was in tears at 88mins. For the simple fact he’d put all his heart in to us scoring, it’s his first proper season. He’s been to Sheff Weds and Accrington prior to today. He was upset cos all game he just had the hope we’d do well, it got too much for him, I tried to say “mate it’s 0-0, we’re not bloody losing, take that as a good thing” then boom,89 mins he was in floods saying it’s the best he’s ever felt and wishes he could relive that moment again and again. absolutely fantastic. Some faces knocking around today too! thought we grinded it out and would’ve taken a point, fucking hell im still buzzing what a fucking goal,

  30. You don't build owt by going through the management roundabout every 18 months! I hate current society/impatient social media kids! They think they're experts whilst barely having a pube & never even had a sticky finger! What is wrong with the here & now immediate success culture? & don't get me started on the pathetic online troll ironic mentality that the kids think they can put on the terraces. It's about time the older generation pointed out to these pricks that 'Wanky Wanderers ' isn't a song ,it's a retort. As amusing as 'passing sidewards & backwards everywhere we go' is, it certainly isn't backing the team. As for 'Dion Charles tweets what he wants' isn't actually that amusing when he could be banned for us for many games, for something he did many teams ago. I'm sick of it & I won't be putting up for it anymore. I'm going to stand in the middle of those k&f's cocks from now on & clipping ears 👂 til they understand. It's not support, it's fookin pathetic. Feel free to join me until we eradicate it.

  32. The Saturday night event was amazing ! Gethin did his family proud an his speech made the venue very dusty . Had the pleasure of talking to his younger siblings , who were happy but sad at the same time obviously. I dont think anyone is unaware of just how cruel a disease it is and fast one can deteriorate . The food was fantastic but the company was better . Henrik and Stelios were an absolute please to chat to , Stelios has worked with the Greek FA for a while , done all his coaching badges and is now looking for a job In England ...(HINT HINT) Mike Whitlow gave up his promotion medal for auction which was an amazing touch and I should have bought it but I was in the gents . Ricardo Santos is not as big as you think but probably the friendliest gentle giant you could meet. Probably a 28 inch waist but muscles on his muscles, very ready with the bear hugs too . Mashed by the end of the night. Alex Baptiste couldnt get enough of the fans and bought a round of Jaeger but he was probably the most drunk man the world has ever seen (no wonder he is on Dioralyte) Later after the doo and back in the hotel .... David Wheater , who is a fuckin huge unit , was a star ... let slip some stuff about Oldham , and his Massive regret about leaving Wanderers (at this point there were 3 people in the bar including me and him so no reason to doubt) last Orders at 02:15 ....the team came down at 02:00 and forced the bar to stay open until they said otherwise. Ian Evatt ...a man of very few words , maybe checking on the team , maybe not happy that one of his defenders told him to fuck off....but polite and happy to shake hands. Izzy ...delighted to be here . loving it but admitted he was blowing out his arse playing wing back , but he'll do whatever for the cause. Dapo really happy , enjoying his football , playing with a smile on his face , trying to not bite back when he gets kicked shitless cos it would let the team down , even tho he is frustrated as fuck at times. Gethin Jones....absolutely overwhelmed to the point of tears thru out the night , really cannot believe the support and whilst , and I agree, Everton lead the line in community endeavours , he is home. MJ Williams ...6'4" , quiet and considered until I went to bed at 03:30 ...who knows after that Harry Brockbank ......Mouth of the north lol , living his best life but nearly got the bar closed for not paying his tab. Liam Gordon .....5'6" , looks 12 yrs but an absolute gent who is happy to be involved , living it up but is sooooo small . Kieren Lee , didnt really want to be involved after the meal .....yes he is sexy but only an Oliver Hardy moustache away from looking like Adolf. Quiet and unassuming . Michael James , big bloke , caught me and some random talking about him at the bottom of the stairs , more than happy to have a chat with 2 pissed wrecks , great guy but didnt like my "joke" about speak of the devil and the devil appears.....said "Im not ken anderson " Finally Auntie Sharon .... A pure delight , in it for the long time , totally in love with the club ...no heirs and graces , loves to chat to anyone ...even me...really interesting to hear he take on social media and what it did to to the team at the start of last year . God fearing woman , in touch with her roots . We are lucky to have her , she believes in community and how a town revolves around it . passed down from her dad and grandad , just dont ask who she supports ! Hope this of interest , if not feel free to delete.!

  33. Stockport fan in peace, good game yesterday both sides taking opportunities to shoot themselves in the foot our first being a gift, your 1st Hogan giving ball away after receiving it in acres but you ruthlessly punished us for it, the 2nd our keeper Ross has a mare should hold initial tame shot or at least push it wide or out for a corner and then should save the rebound but more than a hint of offside about it I'd say our 2nd was just about the pick of goals with least reason to find fault for, we dont really need the money but a replay is nice and it was more for us about giving hope of better things to come given our outlay we were utterly garbage under our previous manager and in reckon we did that and good to have fans and players all pulling in same direction again which wasnt happening after Gannon's departure There were moments where the difference in divisions showed but not enough from your point of view and thought we were good value all in all for the replay plus weve never lost at Reebok/Macron/Unibol whatever its called now! Dapo Adolayafan was the best player on pitch by a mile Finally thanks for the warm applause in the 18th min for George Thompson i know his family appreciated it and was emotional for them Be nice to get a good incentive in draw for either side get a good incentive to potentially earn 3rd round place I'd imagine replay be on TV only game i could see threatening that is solihull vs wigwam, am sure Mark Stott will reciprocate the favour with cheap ticket prices for the replay too and you'll get the uncovered railway end and 2 blocks of the popside which im sure wont have much trouble selling as there be no daft ,membership schemes! Ive only just got back from Bolton after becoming ill with i think food poisoning from dodgy kebab night before so missed minibus home and booked into Beehive Premier Inn for the night to essentially just s**t for hours in it, which was an unexpected end to a decent day out! Good luck for rest of season (replay excepted) and hope we join you guys back in EFL in not too distant future

  34. I've been thinking about how I'd feel about Evatt if he managed a club that already boils my piss. Looks like a bastard, always talks up his side, tells everyone they're the best side in the division when they're 20th and then proves himself right, borderline arrogance, he'd be absolutely infuriating as an opposition manager. Absolutely love that he's our boss. As for Wigan, they're like dogshit. Didn't really spot it, somehow trod in it, can't get it out of the tread on your shoes so the stink of them is always around. I'm hoping this is one of the games that we click in front of goal, would be nice to shut them up. It isn't going to define our season though, the points will be worth no more than the points won at Ipswich.

  36. Congratulations on winning the virtue-signalling award for today. I'm sure you feel such pride in your heart now having stood on the mountain top and bellowed out to the world about your purety. I would imagine everybody on here would be appalled about Elias Kachunga or any other person being racially abused whether by some moron on social media or in any other setting. Doesn't mean we all set out each morning to zealously prove our non-racist attitudes by hectoring and lecturing others at every opportunity and jumping on every bandwagon going. You prove you're not a racist by not saying and doing racist things in your everyday life. Being unsupportive of taking the knee does not mean someone is racist.... except of course in the simple minds of the vindictively woke, who are always on the lookout to massage their own vanity by making grand public gestures as to their untouchable virtue. As well of course as seeking to make out that the whole population is irredeemably racist apart from the chosen few in their sainted glory.

  37. In a nutshell. New Year's Eve 2005. Posh seats courtesy of @Casino. Abour 4 rows back from Bobby Charlton and his like. We equalised so that prompted Traf and myself to introduced ourselfs to everyone around us. We then went on to concede 3 more goals. Every goal we got more grief from the folk behind us. Traf said "fuck this" stood up and proceeded to verbally give it to them. Bloke at side of me, who we had no issues with the entire game went for me. I thumped him with my rolled up complimentary prog and we rolled around a bit. Stewards came down and, very politely I must add, asked us to leave. Casino had some explaining to do with his boss's when he went back to work.

  38. Fuck me. Even a female Bolton fan getting punched by a Wiganer is Labour's fault. 😂

  40. I see the clubs official twitter page posting videos of Saturday with lines like proper away day etc. The clubs own camera man was on the pitch himself filming the carnage after the goal. So the club can utilise and promote our good vibes and slightly exuberant behaviour but Neil Hart wants to sqaush it all? Cant have it both ways....

  41. Shannon strikes me as being a vulnerable young (-ish?) girl with some mental health issues : very easily led and wanting the attention from so-called grown men who should have known better. I'm not sure she deserved a ban and whether anybody at all has benefited from her being stopped. I'd not be surprised if she took it badly.

  44. I have just received this message from Neil’s daughter Hi Horwich, I know you’ve seen my Facebook post but I just thought I would let you know directly about my dads death. He died at home holding hands with my mum this afternoon at around 12.45. I’ll let you know about the funeral arrangements once we know so you can let the rest of ww know. Thanks so much for all your kind messages on ww, my mum and I have been reading them. Xx

  45. FV sorting out the shares, terminating Comley contract, and sorting out the 4 deals for Jones, MJ, Thomason, Lee. Getting their ducks in a row before January. Hopefully Chris Markham and Ian Evatt have their transfer targets lined up and ready to go. Be good to get Dapo's contract extended by a year or two, strengthen the squad at full-back, striker and attacking midfield. Couple that with Amaechi return, maybe Politic and or Darcy coming back from loan and an up-turn in form on the pitch, we should have a positive start to 2022. COYW

  47. Rather than having an argument between ourselves how about someone try and reach out to powers that be at our club, I’m sure someone knows people at the club and get a message to Kachunga that he is a wanderer and we love him, and we all stand behind him and all our players regardless creed,colour or any other category.

  49. The club sent him a card signed by the first team saying they are thinking of him, after I contacted them a few weeks ago.
