  1. There aren't a lot of inspiring choices on offer at the moment. Brown-eye might be OK, but he is still associated with Big Sam. We aren't going to get a big name manager. No doubt the directors haven't even drawn up a shortlist yet!
  2. OC was only part of the problem at t'Reebok. The biggest problem is upstairs at boardroom level as we all know. Until that changes it will still have the 'feel-shit' factor!
  3. Bolton bound. It's just a smokescreen. VITK!
  4. Trending on twitter. Maybe a bit late to post this one, but wouldn't it be great to make it happen!
  5. coming from someone who used to write fanzines, any publicity is 'good publicity' and no doubt a bit of controversy will give their sales a bump and give them a bit of kudos... sadly.
  6. Very insightful article from james Lawton of The Independent... http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/james-lawton-of-course-football-matters-and-muamba-shows-why-it-does-7576747.html
  7. OK OK I'm SEBbbed. Bolton News only put it up an hour or so ago!
  8. Latest news from the Bolton News is Sammy lee could make a return in a coaching capacity. Is this an inspired choice or the work of a madman? Personally, I think any help that Coyle has, the better.. http://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/9486314.Sammy_Lee_offered_role_at_Reebok/?ref=la
  9. One day's wage from every premiership player would keep this club going. Small price to ask.
  10. Just got the tweet about it. They want all Wanderers fans to be involved in fundraising for it, which at a time when the team is on it's uppers is one way of galvanizing the supporters and focussing on something postive. I am in!
  11. The Wire is Shakespeare for the modern age. Quite simply. It's beautifully crafted and full of more gore and horror than any Hollywood blockbuster. I bought the box-set last year and had to wean myself down to two episodes per night. The best part of the "The Wire" is when things start to dovetail into place in the latter part of series 3 and 4 when it all begins to make sense, and characters from the past pop up again and again. There are one or two truly shocking moments, but I won't spoil it for the newbies. It is worth investing time and patience in this series.
  12. Fuzzy dunlop - best character in the series, by far!
  13. RIP please Bob. Sadly, another giant of stage and screen is no longer with us.
  14. You will remember these things... The phrases "Shitbird" "Omar's Coming..." and the legendary Clay Davis' "Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetttttttt"! (though he doesn't appear till later in series 3/4) I had to limit myself to three episodes per night when I bough the box-set. It was that good!
  15. Some aftershave that I don't know whether to wear or drink!
  16. Spare a thought for the tanning salon's of Preston this Christmas!
  17. Excellent piece from James Lawton of the Independent. Sums the game up rather well... http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/james-lawton-but-for-the-referee-spurs-would-have-outshone-robots-of-the-potteries-6276190.html
  18. Head about it, but didn't know who anyone meant till I saw the picture. Sorry and God Bless!
  19. A minutes applause is a fad.. A minutes silence is mourning and proper respect. Everyone should do that. I hope they do on Saturday. Gary Andrew Speed . God Bless.
  20. Purge by Sofie Oksanen. This years best crime novel.
  21. Great player, great name. Drank himself to death, basically. His t-shirt lives on. RIP Great man!
