  1. Part 48 - PLAYOFFS?!? The board asked me to merely consolidate in the Championship this year, but a wave of good form took us all the way to 4th place. Dare we dream of back-to-back promotions? Let's find out! SEMI-FINAL VS READING - Our 3 previous meetings with Reading went DWW and the trend continued, with us getting a 2-goal safety net in Berkshire and going on the rampage in Horwich to win 6-3 on aggregate and make it to Wembley. 2018 SKY BET CHAMPIONSHIP PLAY-OFF FINAL V WOLVES - Wolves made it here after beating Boro 7-2 in their semifinal,though they should have saved some goals for Wembley. A flat start sees us jump them and grab a 2-goal lead within the half-hour and never let go, dumping Mendes' guinea pigs out and sealing a return to the promised land of the Premier League.
  2. Part 47 - It's Magic Welcome to the Bolton Wanderers FA Cup recap. Last season we entered in the 1st round and made it to the 3rd round; this year,we enter the 3rd round. Can we go any deeper?Let's find out! THIRD ROUND VS LOWESTOFT TOWN (ISP) @ Crown Meadow - We begin in the 3rd Round and get arguably the softest draw ever in thumping the Isthmian League minnows at home, though they generated a massive sellout crowd. FOURTH ROUND VS LIVERPOOL (PL) @ Burnden Way - In what turned out to be a portent of the League Cup Final, we dumped Liverpool out of the FA Cup after a 5-goal thriller. FIFTH ROUND VS WIGAN ATHLETIC (FL1) @ the DW Stadium - We keep rolling into the Quarter-Final after a comprehensive win over the Latics. QUARTER-FINAL VS ASTON VILLA (FLC) @ VILLA PARK - A long league and cup program sees us run out of steam and lose on penalties after conceding a late own goal to equalize at 3-3.
  3. Part 46 - A Mad Dash to the Line Matchday 40 - at Burnden Way - Another 5-goal thriller sees us ride our luck and come back from 2-0 down to beat the Blues. Matchday 41 - at Pride Park - No such comebacks this time as we stamp our class against Derby. Matchday 42 - at Burnden Way - It's a solid clean sheet as a controlled performance sees us down Millwall. Matchday 43 - at Oakwell - The wobbly legs starting to show here as Barnsley more than held their own only to fall to a late Armstrong freekick. Matchday 44 - at Burnden Way - Wolves are edged in this battle of playoff hopefuls. Matchday 45 - at the Pirelli Stadium - Another scrappy late-season tie is livened up by Ryan White marking his return from injury with a scissored volley for the matchwinner. Matchday 46 - at Burnden Way - A drab draw with League One-bound Forest ends our League campaign on the day we parade the League Cup around the ground. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - Despite conceding the 6th-most goals in the division, we finish 4th and will face Reading in the play-offs.
  4. Part 45 - A Packed Month They told Caesar beware the Ides of March, and ever since then they said it was a bad month. Would we suffer a March swoon and fall off the pace? Matchday 34 - at Burnden Way - We bring over our February form into the start of the month as we edge Preston in a 5-goal thriller. Matchday 35 - at the Madejski Stadium - Our first clash with one of the extant playoff sides see ex-Royal Adam le Fondre put the Berkshire Biscuits to the sword. Matchday 36 - at Hillsborough - Another 5-goal thriller in Yorkshire as a late Larnell Cole winner keeps our momentum going. Matchday 37 - at Loftus Road - It's another close win as the Hoops get humbled at home. Matchday 38 - at Burnden Way - It's five on the spin during the month as an early JT red spells doom for the Villans. Matchday 39 - at Elland Road - Boy was that a howler from Pontus Jansson. An own goal and his red spells the difference as we dump Leeds out of the playoff places. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - Talk about a gigantic surge.
  5. Part 44B - Do We Stick or Twist? We're rolling down the hill towards the end of the season, and safety has long been assured. The question now on everyone's mind is if a playoff run can be made. Let's find out with a recap of February's Championship results! Matchday 29 - at Burnden Way - We start the month off with a flowing victory against a game Bristol City side. Matchday 30 - at Burnden Way - Calm down Adam! An efficient performance in front of goal see us thump Fulham. Matchday 31 - at Burnden Way - The home cooking seems to agree with us as we make it 3 wins in a row with a good game against Sunderland. Matchday 32(?) - at Carrow Road - That's a way to end a month - with a 11-goal shootout you end up winning. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - A perfect month sees us float up to 7th place with games in hand. With crucial games against Leeds and Reading on the horizon can we sneak into the playoff party?
  6. Part 44A - Fizzy Drinks Cup Welcome to the Bolton Wanderers League Cup recap. Last season we fell to Blackpool at the first hurdle, so any progress would be gravy on the pie. What happened? Let's find out! First Round vs Bury (FL1) @ Burnden Way - We begin our adventure with a solid victory over Bury in a Mancunian derby. Second Round vs Barnsley (FLC) @ Burnden Way - We get to round 3 after a comprehensive dismissal of our Yorkshire opponents.

  7. I use both - they're stats, and some of them are their key attributes for their role on the pitch
  8. Part 43B - New Year's Trot It's 2018 now,and we're revving up for a good end to our first season back in the Championship! Matchday 25 - at Burnden Way - FIREWORKS. ABSOLUTE FIREWORKS. Also Ben Brereton sticking a big V-sign at Marinakos and the Forest board here. Matchday 26 - at Griffin Park - We follow it up with a tight draw against a game Bees side. Matchday 27 - at Burnden Way - Two points dropped after a frustrating failure at the set-pieces. Matchday 28 - at the Cardiff City Stadium - A disappointing end to the month as we lose to Cardiff. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - 12 points away from the playoffs with 17 games left. Is there a late playoff run in us or are we better off preparing for a run at the top 2 next year?
  9. Part 43A - A Transfer Spotlight It's the January window and after seeing the state of the season so far, I've decided to make some moves to strengthen the squad both in the immediate term and in the future. These are our January signings for Bolton. Transfer Centre presented by the University of Bolton - Most of these moves are made with an eye on the mid-term; John Souttar, Allan Campbell and Lewis Morgan join us after the Scottish season ends, with Ben Brereton, Silvio Anocic and Jack Whatmough joined on January 1. Joe Bunney moved to Forest as part of the Brereton deal after a training-ground strop and Jordan Brown joined Pompey in the Whatmough deal to help reduce the fee. - Forest were stupid to transfer-list Ben;he'd scored once for Forest this year and he's hit 7 for us in January. - The former Roma trainee and Croatian U-20 international comes as an insurance policy at LB. - 2/3 of the Scotch phenoms we brought in to strengthen the squad for next season,wherever we may spend it. There was only one departure,with Charlton paying £300,000 for Aaron Wilbraham to kickstart their League 1 promotion push.
  10. Part 42 - Turnabouts With 2017 heading to a close Bolton Wanderers extends their holiday greetings to all the fans,and we hope you all have a great 2018. After a November spent treading water in mid-table would we be able to brighten the festive period with a late push? Let's find out! Matchday 20 - at the City Ground - Well that's a cracking way to start the month - a Jai Quitongo hatter sees us recover from throwing away a 2-goal lead. Matchday 21 - at Burnden Way - It's back-to-back wins as a double-hit late shatters a spirited Burton effort. Matchday 22 - at Burnden Way - Cardiff are routinely dispatched as we make it 3/3. Matchday 23 - at the Riverside - The Boxing Day exertions of traveling to Teesside see us share the spoils with the Smoggies. Matchday 24 - at Bramall Lane - We end 2017 on a sour note though as the Blades strike late to nick the win. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - A good month sees us jump to the top half of the table. Is there a chance for a late playoff run?
  11. xD definitely mate lol but I trust he'll show up in Horwich in some form
  12. Part 41 - Trotting Water Welcome to the fall zone here in Bolton,where you play less games but have more chances of slipping. To this end, we're covering October and November here today. Matchday 12 - at Burnden Way - We start October off with a scrappy draw against a wasteful Wednesday side. Matchday 13 - at Burnden Way - We bounce back though with a emphatic victory against an abject QPR side. Matchday 14 - at Craven Cottage - Another battling performance ends in a narrow loss against a 10-man Cottagers side. Matchday 15 - at the Stadium of Light - We end October with a pulsing draw on Wearside against a game Black Cats side that effectively threw away a 2-goal lead. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - A solid set of results sees us consolidate in 14th. Matchday 16 - at Burnden Way - Clinical strikes were undone by a soft defense as we start November with another 6-goal draw. Matchday 17 - at Deepdale - Three straight stalemates now as we let the lead slip against our Lancs neighbors. Matchday 18 - at Burnden Way - Stale draw. Moving on. Matchday 19 - at Molineux - Probably the only draw we wanted this month, as we manage to steal a point from Mendeshampton Wanderers. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - We slip to 15th but there is some distance between us and the drop zone. Join us next time for the festive season!
  13. Part 40 - Stairway Trotting It's September's results here today, and after a good first month back in the Championship would we be able to push on? Matchday 6 - at Burnden Way - We open September with our first home win of the season punctuated by a Josh Vela bottlerocket. Matchday 7 - at Burnden Way - Back-to-back games,back-to-back wins as we take Sheffield United to the cleaners one more time after nicking just short of 31 million pounds from them in transfers. Matchday 8 - at Portman Road - Three wins on the bounce here as the Anglians are dispatched at home. Matchday 9 - at Burnden Way - Our hot streak is stopped by a marauding Brentford side who blitzed us after the halftime whistle. Matchday 10 - at Ashton Gate - OUR FIRST DRAW! Matchday 11 - at Villa Park - Our poorest performance of the month sees us lose comprehensively in Birmingham. League Table Presented by Phantom Motors - An up-and-down month sees us in 14th place but on the up despite a 3-match run of poor results. Join us next time for October!
  14. Part 39 - Trotting Forward It's a new year at Burnden Way as Bolton look to prove that the previous season in League One was an aberration. John Walsh is the man tasked with consolidating the Trotters back in the second tier and eventually push for a return to a much-changed top flight. Matchday 1 - at Burnden Way - The lads start the season with a heart-breaking loss to a Leeds side who finally kicked the door down late. Matchday 2 - at the New Den - We pick up our first points of the season in dramatic circumstances as Aaron Wilbraham bangs in the winner in London. Matchday 3 - at St Andrews - We take addvantage of wasteful Brum attacks to pick up a second road win of the year. Matchday 4 - at Burnden Way - We seem to have a home hoodoo here to start as an early Matej Vydra rocket proves to be the difference. Matchday 5 - at the KCom Stadium League Table presented by Phantom Motors - Solidly mid-table to start here, just as everyone at the club wanted. Join us next time as we cover September!
  15. Part 38 - Bolting it Down It's a fresh day in Bolton,with a new gaffer coming in the form of John Walsh. The 27-year old Scotsman replaced Phil Parkinson after promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking and has said he is honored to lead Wanderers to safety and eventual recovery. The State of the Club - Right from the start it's going to be a slog, seeing as we'd need a reload of the club to compete for safety. The biggest issue would be the dearth of talent compared to the surfeit of leadership, which needs to be balanced to meet the board's expectation of mid-table. As for the back-room staff, only Head Scout Jimmy Phillips and Head Physio Matt Barrass were retained as I looked to build a more balanced staff pool. TRANSFER CENTRE PRESENTED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF BOLTON IN: OUT: - The major themes of the transfer window are pace,youth and talent. Raising £36.5 million from the sales of the older heads, the major purchases were Ezri Konsa from Charlton and John McGinn from Hibs to bring in young talent across the side. Pre-season Results Presented by Carling: - 1 win in 4 doesn't bode well, but with all the new guys it was expected. Initial Squad Update: - The negatives aren't as bad as stated,and the talent level is extremely promising as we aim for safety. The biggest improvement is in the staff, as we loaded up with a full complement of ex-professionals. Between Tim Flowers, Patrick Kluivert and the Nevilles, that's around 200 caps and 40 international goals leading the way for the youngsters. We also get young Spanish scout Alvaro Guevara to assist Jimmy. With these moves, we look forward to doing well in the Championship.
