On www.wartimewanderers.com the flag is the right way up.....and you get a little extra footage....I hate seeing our flag displayed the wrong way, I once sent an email the The White House as they had the corridor lined with Union Jacks for Tony Blair's visit and half of them were upside down.....I got a really long letter of apology from them.....thought I was going to get a tax audit !!!

The 70th anniversary of Harry Goslin's death is December 18th.

 

Anyone know if the club plans a commemoration?

 

You never know, the publicity might get some funding for Wartime Wanderers

 

It would be nice to name a stand after him. It's the least he deserves.

Can't imagine the club doing that

Saw a post on Face Ache earlier which reminded me of this. Is it anywhere nearer fruition? Are they still trying to raise funds or did someone run away with the already-pledged funding?

Wouldn’t anyone outside of Bolton be interested in any of this?

I think if it was done well I think it would be, concentrate on the history and story, rather than too much of it being a Bolton Wanderers thing.

Plenty of good historical wartime movies about. Some good fictional ones too.

That young lad off the telly, he was on Brian Conley last week, Bradley Walsh, he's got the role of Harry.

 

Used to be a trainee at Brentford, so he should look the part.

 

Might be stretching it now he's in his early fifties, but perhaps Sly Stallone could be cast as the 'keeper, to bump the box office appeal?

That’s the problem, nobody would really be arsed. The book is dull as fuck, I just don’t see how it could become a film that would interest anybody, especially from outside the area

Maybe they could put a twist on it were one of the players is a German spy and has a mission to kill the King and bring down the government while having a romantic connection with a member of the Warburton family.

I think it would be a nailed on success along the lines of the Escape to Victory. It's a story of a group of young lads going to war rather than a Bolton Wanderers thing.

I'm not sure Escape To Victory can be hailed as a success can it? - it's a pretty shit film isn't it.

 

The fact nobody seems to be remotely interested in financing the film probably shows how little appeal there actually is for the film

Bit of artistic licence switches it to United players

 

Suddenly, it's a massive thing

 

Sad, but true

I think it’s a great story and I’m sure of it would have been Man U it’d of already hit the screen. As it was Bolton fan who wrote the book not sure that would be possible. Thankfully.
