    will be funny to see Mayweather knocked out by a youtuber

     

    he has over 3 stone weight difference and Paul's also 6'3

    More chance of me beating Ronnie O'Sullivan at snooker when he's playing left handed.

    I’m convinced some people who claim to be Bolton fans don’t like us winning,because then they’ve nowt to moan about.

    They'll always find summat to moan about.

    Burnden Park - Front approach

     

    That has me reminiscing about match daysas a kid in the early/mid 70s. Getting to the ground early, mooching around the Happy shop. Buying sew on badges for the latest scarf, also buying the tin ones with a players picture on. Woollen scarf round neck, silk ones round wrists, reading the programme whilst waiting for autographs. 

       Would occasionally be stood on the carpark in awe & trepidation as the police marched a big away following to the Lever end, particularly remember Forest in Cloughie 1st year, I think they brought 2 specials. 

        Then there was the atmosphere of a big game at Burnden, so unique I can still feel & smell it, especially a night game, followed by the walk back up Manny Rd to town, sometimes joyous, sometimes sad & often volatile! 

         What I'd give to go back & experience it just one more time 😢

    Listening to this over a year on and it’s even more bizarre than it was at the time. If I recall it was after getting done 2-0 at Rochdale in the pissing rain. 

    I’d heard no calls for him to go and there was zero pressure from the stands. 

    We had no money and absolutely no expectations. Never will a Bolton manager have such little pressure as the remainder of the 19/20 season. He invited the pressure as a result of these odd rantings.  

    There was certainly no one comparing him to Big Sam or Parky.

    We weren’t living in the past. We were all fully aware how close we’d come to going out of business, were under an embargo, and started on minus points. Stability is literally all we were striving for.

    Yes, the Phoenix appointment and not being able to keep Chicksen on had seemingly irked him, but there are so many paranoid thoughts from so many different directions in that interview.
    It’s like a full blown rant at fans, the board, Phoenix and the media all at once. Most of which completely unprovoked.

    This club was way too big for him. And a Bolton-born United fan? Never stood a chance.

    What I must add is that he did act gracefully and didn’t say a bad word against us after his departure, and when facing us with Tranmere. 

    I’m not sure if he’ll look to go back into management, but I do recall reading a Rochdale fan account that he hadn’t been the same since losing a family member a few years ago.
    That being the case, and having heard some of his interviews, I hope for his sake and health he does what’s best for him.

    If Alan Partridge took up football management....

    What are you on about?

    We come from the land of the ice and snow
    From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
    The hammer of the gods
    Will drive our ships to new lands
    To fight the horde, sing and cry
    Valhalla, I am coming

    I present you with Stairway to heaven... Written by a 7yr old with little imagination.
