no you can't , premium world beer only.

anyone drinking beer after 5pm on a cruise is a peasant

Assume you go on the cocktails after 5pm?

Complan with a dash of Sherry, something like that? All gathered round a wireless dancing to Vera Lynn bangers.

It’s absolute vindication for the efforts of FV, all you boys who’ve stuck at it with season tickets in the dark times and shoved the hard miles in fully expecting the inevitable tanking. A special day for the club and the town today to see the place rocking and no far off packed. Let hope we get the 3 points

i genuinely think Sharon might shed a tear today when she sees and hears it.

I know norwich said the south would not be used, but surely we are not locking folk out?

It’s close but not enough for that

if folk wanted one they’d of sorted sooner not last minute if sales was up to 20 plus start of week they probably would open it

From Rotherhams Forum, they have a match thread.. v Bolton, 6 posts so far and a so-called expert 😅

Bolton! A club with a rich history of success . In recent memory one remembers their long campaign in the premiership that lasted in the region of 10 seasons. Impressive ! 

 

They have also infamously linked to unsustainable debt and after what seemed like an eternity finally suc***bed and HM revenue and customs served a winding petition. With debts in excess of 100 million .

 

Within 7 seasons Bolton would find themselves in league 2 , the old division 4 sounds more sober and is a reminder of how far clubs can ascend and fall.

 

They continued to be unstable and went from Championship to league Two in successive seasons ..they were promoted last season back to league one...and here we are.

 

They look to me like a club with another 3 to 4 seasons of rebuilding before they can be near their optimum level. That is the sustainable level for a club that Size.

 

There current squad looks average for this division. It is made up of inexperienced players albeit many with pedigree of having cone through Premier league and championship academy's.  Eoin Doyle is perhaps the most familiar name having been a star at Chesterfield and then being the subject of lots of clubs fighting for his signature.  Bolton have a couple of tall defenders who don't look too mobile to me. They have a direct style that is set up to win the ball quickly and move it through the centre to the 3 forwards at lightening speed . They favour having two mobile deep midfielders with another bank of 3 infront giving options across the line with the one out and out striker at the head of the triangle...its usually interpreted as a 4-2-3-1. The footage I've watched gives the distinct impression that they play fairly tight to the centre and aren't too concerned with stretching to the limits of the pitch.The 3 sitting behind Doyle is enough to make opposition managers think twice about their defensive options. They get a lot of chances and sights of goal and with 14 in the league are 2nd overall and sit 3rd in the table after 7 games. Such attacking options have though resulted in conceding 10 goals against.  However, they have been running out winners in those High scoring encounters.

 

So, looking at the squads it's another case of being favourites. Indeed, in my view , I can't find too much difference between the experience and quality we faced on Tuesday at lincoln and this current Bolton squad . Doyle being the exception. They do look hungry and confident and play with high energy however.

 

What will you do ?

Square up to them or back off ?
