Keith Hill believes in miracles despite relegation staring Bolton in face

Wanderers manager wants his hometown club to keep believing they can make up 18-point gap to League One safety

“Wycombe know all about the ups and downs of football,” Keith Hill explains, before Saturday’s meeting of the Wanderers in Bolton. “It’s only a few years since they only stayed in the Football League on goal difference, the season Bristol Rovers went down. “They are in a different place now, in front of us, but we are on a different journey.”

That is one way of putting it, though the harsh reality is that the two travellers meeting at the Macron on Saturday appear to be wandering in different directions. Wycombe are pushing for promotion to the Championship, while Bolton, who started the season with barely any players and a 12-point deduction, are bottom of the table and looking at a drop into League Two.

EFL appeals against ‘lenient’ Bolton punishment for failing to fulfil fixtures
• League One side had five-point deduction suspended
• EFL ‘disappointed by conclusions’ of disciplinary commission

The League One side, who began the season on minus 12 points after entering administration, cancelled a Championship game against Brentford at the end of the previous campaign and postponed a League One match against Doncaster in August.

Keith Hill: ‘We’re trying to re-establish Bolton’s greatness’
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.

Turning our clubs into global brands means there will be more Burys | Jonathan Wilson

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.
