    6 weeks till season starts,plenty of time to get sorted . But I as we know their fans are going through mental hell.
  6. This is where I am at. I work for a m,cr office Out of 24 guys , there are only 2 who has season tickets ( aussie has a city one). The rest are all avid City , and red Bastards from their armchairs . They all rhyme off numerous international players who are supposed to have signed or might be . And I don't have a clue about 94% of them. Yesterday they were discussing how crap England have been recently, I did try to explain its a meaningless replacement competition for friendlys and haven't watched 1 second of it. Back to my original point , I follow BWFC , I know our current opponents in League One , take an interest in the Championship and League 2 . But know very little about Current elite footballers around Europe or the Premier League. Does this mean I am a Bolton fan rather than a fan of football ? No I don't think so . Must admit things get agitated sometimes when I ask why they don't bother going to games . " we are younger than you , have got young families etc " My response to that is " bollocks, I've watched Bolton from the terraces all my adult life ,as I have gone through everything life chucks at you " So top six in the Premier League next season. What do I think . City - money is king( spent sensibly, with a good coach) Red scousers Then , Arsenal , Spurs , Chelsea . Hope the great revival is along way off and the red side of mc,r finish 6th or 7th . That way I get to fast forward MOTD to watch them lose whilst sat in bed on Sunday mornings recovering from watching My Team from the stands & terraces of numerous football grounds next season.
  7. Walked off the complex in the Dominican Republic , for about a mile along the beach . There was a group.of huts on stilts general market stalls found a very small bar , BWFC were on tele . 2 mins later dad and lad walk in with Wanderers tops on. Watched the match surrounded by disinterested locals , who were watching cricket on their phones . With hindsight it was just like a Sunday afternoon in the Raven in Wigan. Locals more interested in a different ball game.

    Already there appears to be favouritism. Dead line passed .( deathly silence from EFL) No count down to extinction clock on Sky Sports.
  9. Any bets ? Or is this old news
  10. I had wondered if you were an uncover steward, couldn't shake you off in Crewe
  11. embankment


    Bassini next up on Jim Whites show .
  12. Unused . And of course it's the Embankment. Cheers to The Dog for giving it to me .
  13. In the White Lion earlier . After Madrid scored . "Oi who do you support ? " Bolton , why ? " who do you want to win this ? " Madrid . " you fuckin nob head they are German " Woah so you want Liverpool to win . "Yeah I support Bolton & Liverpool " Really !!! Get ta fuck. And he was my age.
  14. Work with 2 Burnley fans. 1 is really positive. The other totally the opposite. Reckons they are in the mire. Both season ticket holders and go away
  15. He is currently on the piss with Isgrove in a warmer climate. So he isn't shacked up
  16. Now he was impressive
  17. Lots of people like the hotel.I go in most games just to sort out away trips . Yes it is fine to grab a quick chat and give a nod towards fellow supporters. But - The beer is not the best The food portions are getting smaller. And fans are not allowed in after night games. It's a good shout the club taking over Scott's, but Premier Inn own the property along with the Harvester building. To my mind , Scott's is the better option to a tent outside the club shop. Other than that the AHM could buy Barnstormers and run the place . Just keep Casino away from the bar.
