  • Sat, 29 Jan 2022 17:16:49 +0000: Dion Charles inspires Bolton rout as sorry Sunderland are hit for six - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian

    If Sunderland’s recent past is littered with embarrassments, this was another candidate for the title of a historic low. They can seem to be slumming it in League One, but they slumped to their heaviest ever defeat in third-tier football.

    Their afternoon was summed up when Danny Batth, with a finish that was both unwitting and unstoppable, donated Bolton’s fifth goal with a spectacular diving header.

  • Fri, 24 Dec 2021 12:00:23 +0000: Boxing Day 1963 goal feast is famous but what happened two days later? - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian

    The results on 26 December 1963 – 66 goals in 10 games – are celebrated every year. They are only half of the story

    By Richard Foster for The Football Mine

    As the frenetic Christmas schedule swings into action, players in England are very much in the minority among major European leagues in readying themselves for the customary glut of games squeezed into the tightest of holiday schedules. While the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 are embarking on a winter break, Premier League and Football League clubs face the prospect of three games in a week, starting with the traditional Boxing Day fixture. Until the late 1950s, there was even a full programme of games on Christmas Day itself, as one of the few public holidays that allowed working people to attend matches.

    Boxing Day has become enshrined in English football culture as a much-loved curiosity of the fixture list. One reason why Boxing Day matches gained popularity was the extraordinary events of 1963, when 10 matches in the First Division produced a scarcely credible 66 goals, a feat that is still commemorated to this day. What fans may not know is what happened in the fixtures that followed two days later on 28 December. Many of the games were rematches from Boxing Day and there were some stunning turnarounds.

  • Sat, 20 Nov 2021 21:00:02 +0000: Without a regulator with teeth, my beloved football will destroy itself | Alison McGovern - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian

    Rewards at the top are extreme, so people take crazy financial risks with clubs’ futures while fans can only look on in horror

    If you are reading this article, you probably already care about football. Perhaps you protested against the European Super League or felt the pain of Bury, Bolton or Wigan fans. You have heard the football rumour mill grinding: the Crouch review is on its way and, with it, the potential for major change.

    Here’s a common story. Some people inherit houses, some even still inherit titles. I inherited football. My grandad got a free ticket to Anfield in school and 55 years later he took me. My life has been counted not just in school years and, every so often, elections, but in football seasons. It is how my family functions.

  • Wed, 10 Nov 2021 11:41:40 +0000: The power of perceptions and PR in football management - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian

    Football is a results business but it is also a branding exercise. And, once you have a reputation, it’s hard to shake it

    By Chris Evans for The Set Pieces

    “I won’t ever be going to a top-four club because I’m not called Allardici, just Allardyce,” joked Sam Allardyce nearly a decade ago. He was the West Ham manager at the time and was fielding a question before a match with Manchester City. He quickly qualified that what he said was “tongue in cheek” but there was a ring of truth to what he said. Allardyce had a PR problem, an issue that has only exacerbated in the nine years since he made that jibe to the roomful of reporters. Many other managers have struggled with the same issue in recent years.

    Even if manager PR is not a tangible thing, there is no doubt it affects coaches’ job prospects, especially in an era when the sheer mention of a club being linked with a new boss can inspire a huge reaction online. Terrace opinions have always influenced the game, but social media only magnifies perceptions, whether they are factual or not.

    • National League South side beat League Two leaders 3-2
    • More than 5,000 away fans see Stockport earn replay

    St Albans City produced the surprise of the FA Cup first round so far with a 3-2 home win over Forest Green Rovers.

    The Saints, currently second in National League South, fell behind to Matty Stevens’ near-post finish after 18 minutes but were level eight minutes later, Mitchell Weiss heading home to spark wild scenes at Clarence Park.

  • Fri, 24 Jun 2022 07:48:00 +0000: Dempsey Determined To Make His Mark - Bolton Wanderers News

    Club News

    Midfielder fit and flying and eager to show true colours

    Kyle Dempsey is planning for lift-off following a stuttering start to his Wanderers’ career.

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.

Roger Hunt obituary
One of Liverpool’s greatest strikers who played a key role in England’s 1966 World Cup victory

The footballer Roger Hunt, who has died aged 83, was a key member of the England team that won the World Cup in 1966, appearing in all six games in the finals and scoring three goals in the process. He was also one of Liverpool’s all-time greats, winning two First Division titles and an FA Cup at Anfield in the early 1960s and becoming the club’s highest league scorer – a position he retained, with only Ian Rush surpassing him in all competitions.

However, for all his feats Hunt was occasionally a target for criticism from the footballing public, not least because in 1966 he had inadvertently taken on the role of the man who kept Jimmy Greaves out of the World Cup final.
