- Thu, 18 Apr 2019 20:19:46 +0000: Why a former bankrupt Watford owner is in position to buy Bolton Wanderers | David Conn - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian
Laurence Bassini claims to have £20m to keep Bolton afloat after the paucity of the Ken Anderson years
One of many sad elements in Bolton’s financial crisis and other current indignities is that for years they were supported by an owner most clubs would consider ideal. Eddie Davies, originally a Bolton lad, made a fortune marketing the heating elements in kettles and he brewed up £185.5m in loans to Wanderers before pulling the plug in November 2015.
By then Bolton were falling to a hard landing without the parachute payments from their second stint in the Premier League between 2001 and 2012, with players to pay and making heavy losses. In September, just days before he died, aged 72, Davies made one last loan of £5m, to the current owner, Ken Anderson.Continue reading...
- Thu, 18 Apr 2019 19:02:33 +0000: Daniel Farke in the saddle as Norwich gallop to the finishing line | Stuart James - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian
Despite a limited budget, Norwich top an unpredictable Championship and are heading for promotion
The standout line in a story about Daniel Farke, the Norwich City manager, on the Pink ’Un website this week was found in the penultimate paragraph. “A Banham Zoo spokesman said she did not know Farke had visited and could not confirm whether the head coach had taken part in its heavy horse experience.”
Farke and horses have taken on a life of their own in Norfolk ever since Norwich fans picked up on the fact that the German once rode into the stadium at SV Lippstadt 08, the club where he started his managerial career, in the saddle. There is a Norwich chant about Farke being on a horse and the 42-year-old was recently asked in a press conference whether he would consider celebrating promotion by trotting into Carrow Road. Farke did not rule it out and, for the record, it is also true that he visited Banham Zoo this week.Continue reading...

Bolton Wanderers take on Aston Villa at the University of Bolton Stadium this Friday afternoon in the Sky Bet Championship.
Bolton Wanderers who are still reeling from being relegated last season have been showing much interest in many new players during the closed season as manager Owen Coyle looks to reinforce his squad for next season. The manager has a number of targets on his radar as he hopes to take Bolton straight back up to England`s top flight next year.
The first player who looks set to arrive at the trotters next season is the highly thought of Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan who looks all set to pen a new three year deal for Bolton. The goalkeeper has only last season signed a new three year deal at Leeds but with places not being available for him in the squad he looks all set to be playing his football in the Midlands next season in a deal thought to be worth around three million pounds.
Former Bristol City midfielder Kalifa Cisses is another player who looks set to join Owen Coyles side as they have taken him on a trial basis from the club from the south. Coyle has long been a huge admirer of the player who has found his chances very limited at Bristol and is looking for a new challenge and the deal looks all set to go through on a permanent basis as long as the player passes a medical.
Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu is another player being linked to the side from Bolton as the highly rated Spaniard looks set to leave Stamford Bridge after seeing his chances of first team action being dealt a huge blow by the arrival of Eden Hazard as well as the proposed signing of Brazilian midfielder Oscar.
Another player who has recently left Bolton is defender Mark Connolly who has just been acquired by Crawley Town on a two year contract. Connolly has found his chances with Bolton very limited and has had to branch out in his search for first team football with Coyle said to be quite disappointed with the players decision to leave.
