- Thu, 12 Sep 2019 10:46:04 +0000: Keith Hill: ‘We’re trying to re-establish Bolton’s greatness’ - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian
The club are on minus 11 points and almost went bust but the manager is not giving up after signing nine players in one day
If Bolton Wanderers require a passionate, vibrant manager to revive their fortunes following near-extinction, Keith Hill could prove ideal.
After 12 years and 647 games as a No 1, the fires still burn in a local-born man who is speaking early on a sunny morning at the club’s Horwich training base. Hill has a penchant for a soundbite, offering up arresting epigrams on “loving that ball rolling” and how, as a relegation battle strategy, “digging yourself deeper in the hole” can shift pressure on to rivals.Continue reading...
- Sat, 31 Aug 2019 10:00:43 +0000: Turning our clubs into global brands means there will be more Burys | Jonathan Wilson - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian
The concentration of wealth and attention on a tiny number of globalised superclubs is leading to moments of remarkable drama and quality – but at a terrible price
A recent Set-Piece Menu podcast eloquently made the case for fandom as a broad church. When the Premier League is marketed so aggressively all over the world, when overseas television rights bring it so much revenue, when players and managers and owners are often foreign, they argued – quite reasonably – who is to deny the travelling supporter from Baltimore or Bangalore their seat in the stadium, the right to call themselves a fan? All of that made sense.
On an intellectual level I agreed with it. It fitted my general liberal, globalised worldview. And yet, I realised, viscerally I disagreed: of course, I paid lip service to all that but actually I regarded my form of fandom as being more authentic and more important.Continue reading...
- Thu, 29 Aug 2019 15:23:17 +0000: Bury, Carabao upsets and the Alexis Sánchez mystery – Football Weekly Extra - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian
Max Rushden, Barry Glendenning, Paul MacInnes and Michael Butler discuss the expulsion of Bury from the Football League, midweek fun between second XIs, Chris Smalling and innovative Carabao Cup draw ideas
We look back at the last few days in football, starting with the story concerning Bury and their expulsion from the Football League – we speak to David Conn, who’s been across the story, and others like it, from the very start.
Midweek Carabao Cup action provided plenty of goals and one or two upsets – we round up the best of the action, look ahead to a weekend of fixtures in the Premier League and further afield and wonder whether anyone interested in signing Alexis Sanchez has actually seen him recently.Continue reading...
- Wed, 28 Aug 2019 17:40:43 +0000: The Guardian view on the collapse of Bury FC: a tragedy bigger than mere football | Editorial - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian
The fans of a small northern club deserved better than to witness their club destroyed by bad management and financial speculation
Football is about more than money, however much lucre has come to shape the beautiful game. Over this summer, English top-tier clubs had spent a total of £1.41bn, with Manchester United shelling out a world record fee on a defender of £80m for Leicester City’s Harry Maguire. Yet these amounts and the teams that spend them are symptoms of an unsentimental business model that is indifferent to tradition, place and practice. It is eroding the sense that many football clubs are a central and vital part of people’s identity.
That is why the end of Bury Football Club after 134 years is important. Before it was shut, 400 supporters had volunteered to mop and sweep the Gigg Lane ground hoping to show that the true value of their football club cannot be counted in pounds and pennies. Bury FC was the town’s pride until 5pm on Tuesday. The club disappeared after prospective buyers said that there were “systemic failings” that could not be overcome. With capitalism increasingly dominating community as the driving force in modern football, other clubs could risk a similar fate.Continue reading...

• Club was on verge of liquidation but future now looks secure
A day after the Football League pulled the plug on Bury’s current membership, Bolton Wanderers were able to announce a last-minute reprieve with the club administrators confirming the sale to Football Ventures Limited has been completed.
Bolton were on the verge of liquidation after four months of unpaid bills, postponed fixtures and unremunerated playing and safety staff led to a 14-day final deadline, with the administrator Paul Appleton told to either sell the League One club or prove it can be funded for the test of the season.Continue reading...

It was a night of celebrating yesterday evening for the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, as they picked up the award for Community Club of the Year at the North West Football Awards.
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.
