Its normal end of season nerves. There have been many of these over the years. As I said in an earlier post. Not many teams have been in our position. Doesn’t get any easier though. 
 

You know we are cut from the same cloth. 

 

My dad was too caught up in the fear of hooliganism and wouldn't take me to the match... Hence I was chosen to go to Burnden rather than OT.

I had so many craics with my mates over the years, the first being on the pitch against Preston. I think I was 13. In terms of ups and downs, I think it's 7/6 positive, but I have been drinking for a long long time. 

I was very keen not to make the same mistake as my dad, so my lads first match was just before his 2nd birthday. Luckily we beat Stoke 5-0. He has endured 80% shite since then, but he still has the buzz. 

He was in the pitch 4 years ago today, and whilst we can't do that tomorrow, we'll be there just in case something memorable does happen. 

Times like this are in short supply, make memories whilst you can... If it goes tits up, you'll still remember the moment, those you're with, and what you mean to each other. 

I'll be going for a beer or two, summat to eat, and watch on my phone... Any party will organic

We have two chances to get the win we need. That’s assuming we need a win. 
 

We don’t do stuff easy it’s what we do. But we’ve proven we are better than the majority of teams in this league. 
 

we will Be fine. We will win tomorrow. It will be nervy no doubt. But let’s enjoy it. 4 months ago we were fearing the worst. 

Two and one half months ago, we were mired in 20th place.  Third or higher is much better.

Tell you what following Bolton this season has been the best cure for I.B.S. related constipation I've ever had.

If you're a Monty Python fan you'll know there's a sketch called Arthur 'Two Sheds' Jackson, maybe we ought to call the other guy with the similar problem on here 'Two Shits', :lol:!!!

My first ever live football game was at anfield watching Bolton beat Liverpool in the cup in 92, I was 10 and was in the centenary stand with my dad who was the Bolton fan and his mate from work who was Liverpool and got the tickets. I wasn't really a Bolton fan having not grown up in Bolton, and my dad hadn't done a great job, but from that day it set the seed. From the next season we got season tickets travelling from Cheshire to Bolton each game, not far but still a trip. I kept my season ticket through uni, but had to miss out on a few mainly  Holldsworth Wembley and Preston in Cardiff,  but otherwise kept that going until the 2010 season when I just lost my passion and personal reasons meant I didn't want make that trip week in and week out as my family had long since given up. Not long after I moved down Cambridge way and haven't seen as much as I had liked, the last 4-5 years I started to reconnect with the club. It was shit at first but through all the pain of that I rediscovered my deep rooted love for the club travelling to a number of home and away games. This season has been a revelation, we are a club again and one I am deeply proud of, I have watched every game and am excited  by the sport again. I really hope we seal things tomorrow,  but if we don't then we still go again next week and whilst not going up automatically would be horrible,  the journey this season has been phenomenal and regardless of what ultimately happens,  my club exists and beats firmly in my heart. COYWM!

 

First ever Bolton match was the Legends match in 2016, saw some great players on the day though not in their prime sadly. Must admit got quite emotional when Fabrice Muamba came on.

My first league match was a disappointing 0-0 draw against Bradford the same year.

Can't get to many matches due to money, Ill health, but hope to get to some next season covid permitting.

Enjoy your day the best you can .

After coming away from the Barbican yesterday evening as it went well over capacity its crazy they'd rather you were outside spraying  beer on each other than masked up in ground.

Soooo looking forward to this.

Still hoping that we can win the league, tho we may av run out of games to do that now, but WE NEVER GIVE UP.

Its great that our destiny is in our own hands, I’m certain that we won’t waste this opportunity.

Another 1-0 will be fine.

I actually really really enjoy these 1-nillers, smug in the knowledge that try as they might, the opposition ain’t gonna score! 😂 

Anyone else?

The only games I've managed to watch this season have been the 2 televised here. My Dad has insisted that I don't get up in the middle of the night to watch and jinx it. So in a few hours I'll be dropping enough Temazepam to knock a horse out.

 

Hopefully when I wake the usual culprits will be moaning about another 1-0 win and the rest of the not rights on here will be celebrating and drinking heavily.

Slept surprisingly well (eventually). Still wasn’t expecting to be awake at this time though and the game was literally the first thought on my mind.

Club shop order is ready to collect (home shirt and some gear for my mate’s lad who has become BWFC obsessed this season despite his parents supporting the Manc clubs) so I’ll nip up this morning and offer up a prayer to the football gods.
