  1. The latest from the BWFC saga is that apparently all guests at The Whites Hotel are being told it's cash only for rooms/services as the credit facility has been taken away from the hotel.

    Ken Anderson no longer wishes to run a club that is losing around £1million a month. There is real genuine concern that the club could be liquidated in the high court tomorrow as Ken Anderson has been playing games with HMRC for too long now and he might just be hard faced enough to allow it to happen.

  2. Overheard a guy in a suit who seemed fairly senior within SWFC telling a couple of blokes in the club shop about "it's going to be an all orange kit".

    Can't do any better than that sadly, but sounds like we might be hard to miss away from home next season lol

  3. Even though this has a fishing trip all over it, Owen Coyle would be a shocking appointment for us.


    Being from Bolton, knowing a lot of BWFC and Wigan fans I have been told the same thing about him from both sets of fans. His tactics are appalling, weird substitutions and no plan B, add to that a country club style approach to training that lead to rumours at both clubs of senior pro's going to the chairmen to raise their concerns that they were not being worked enough.


    Hopefully MM won't do anything as daft as to appoint him!

  4. Mixed feelings about this tbh. Personally I think Warnock would have been the right person to keep us up this season, the fact that he is an ex SUFC manager didn't bother me at all, he is a professional who would have got on with the job.


    However I think his appointment could have been a huge problem as well, just like it was for my "other" team, Wigan RLFC who took on Ian Millward, who was basically the equivalent of Neil Warnock being a hated ex St Helens coach. From day one it just didn't work as half the fans never took to him and were just waiting for him to trip up, which he eventually did.


    Apply that to us and you have half the fans at Hillsborough just waiting for us to go a goal behind so they could give Warnock grief, in the position we are in its just something we just can't have.


    All we can do now is hope that MM will get the next best person who will keep a high percentage of the fan base happy.

  5. Bet Hayden White's a bit gutted. Serves him right for chasing the money, he would have had a chance to shine. Hope it doesn't work out for him. Not bitter or owt.

    Don't feel too bitter, from what a couple of people I know within BWFC have told me they seem to regret pinching him off us now. Comments such as "hopeless" and "the lad looks like he has never seen a football in his life".


  6. No shock as it was in the Bolton News last night that local sponsors were pulling out of sponsoring the club. Fans were also said to be boycotting any kit/training gear with the quickquid logo on it.

    All of this shows exactly what an out of touch buffoon Phil Gartside is.
