  1. Started with my dad and brother in the Manchester Road North Stand 73-75 then with friends changed between Lever End and the Embankment depending on the match. Around 78 moved into Burndan Terrace (paddock) for a few seasons. During late 80's until 1996 sat in Manchester Road South (front row) and fully enjoyed the banter with the lads in the terrace. I do miss BP for many reasons.
  2. Can't say many of these are in the 'great' class, some couldn't even tie Tommy Lawton's laces.
  3. There have been some great players born in Bolton and district (yes that includes Farnworth) who have never played for BWFC. I'll start with one, you name the rest. Here is mine: Tommy Lawton
  4. Take a look at this site, some great photos of Wembley Stadium. https://www.imortaisdofutebol.com/2017/09/28/jogos-eternos-bolton-wanderers-2x0-west-ham-united-1923/ Building one of the towers.
  5. The photo in the 1923 thread got me thinking about how goal post evolved over the years and the history behind the changes. Strange to think that once they used string tied to the tops 🙃 Here are a few links with some history. Even though they are not made from wood now we still refer to hitting the 'woodwork'. https://www.harrodsport.com/advice-and-guides/a-history-of-the-football-goalpost https://gdfra.org.au/history_of_goalposts.htm

  9. We had another game to go after Wolves, we played at Bristol Rovers and drew 2-2
  10. 14th May 1977 Wolves beat us 1-0 at Burnden and more or less ended our chances of promotion that year. WBA pipped us and went up.
  11. Has anyone mentioned when Bolton took the shed at Chelsea? 😆
  12. elmer fudd 😁 I wonder if he's still alive.
  13. I remember the day as if it was yesterday. Heading down Manchester Road with my old fella and my brother, getting drawn down the road with the crowds. All the filth were already in the Embankment by the time I got to the top of the Manchester Road North stand. It took my breath away how many were actually crammed into the end, must have been an accident waiting to happen with the crowd swaying as much as it did. The noise was electric mainly from the filth but the whites gave a response back. When Pearson scored the ground erupted and lead to many a skirmish, mostly outside along the fence leading from the Embankment to the main road, under two bridges and the odd bump towards town.
  14. I agree, folk need to stop having a go at KH. He may have some strange ways that's just his personality but ffs get off his back (not you Traf) and take the pressure off him and let him do his job.
  15. Today's society and mindset pisses me off. No one is ever satisfied these days, never, they always have something to moan about. KH may not be the best manager, but most said PP wan't a good manager either, some hated BSA. Yes it's all about opinions but be thankful you have a club to support.
  16. photos can be uploaded to the 'gallery' section on this site.
  17. Sunday 14 June Group D England v Croatia (15:00 Wembley)
  18. you know the rules, face price.
  19. If you have a decent account who uses Xero they will provide it for you. and yes you are a tight git.
  20. alreet Norpig and welcome, enjoy the banter!
