  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip got Bolton FC has been archived below:

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.
