  1. Try listening to Fearless Motivation instrumentals ‘Got Fight’ or ‘Never Give Up’ Two inspirational tracks that are original and would be great for our team to walk out to.
  2. Although I was born in Intake, Sheffield I have lived in Bolton for over 40 years and continued to support the Owls, having a season ticket for the South Stand for years now. Living in the North West I do try to get to as many away games as possible and join the thousands that make up the WAWAW traveling army. A couple of seasons ago I went up to support the team at Blackburn’s ground and after the game had finished I was walking with a couple of mates back to our car when a big guy ran past swinging a large machete. We didn’t actually see him cause any serious damage to anyone but it was a scary time as he was either high on drugs or drunk. The police did a superb ‘rugby tackle’ on him and brought him to the ground, he still managed to keep hold of the very large machete and was still very threatening. Strangely another policeman started filming the guy which must have been for evidence. We later learned he had inflicted some injuries to some fans just outside the ground but we didn’t hear any more about the scary incident.
  3. Totally agree but to be fair as soon as Burnley said they wanted him out on loan to a Championship side we should have been talking to other possibilities. The young guy at West Ham i believe would be a good choice . We are getting desperate for a decent keeper and at least two strikers so let’s hope for some good news over the next 7/10 days.
  4. Given that Europe is just ‘down the road’ why isn’t our recruitment team looking to find some ‘gems’ from the leagues in Poland, Hungary, Sweden and Denmark to name just a few. Surely there are some decent strikers and keepers that would see a move into the EFL with a club such as Wednesday to be a very appealing proposition. All we are hearing at the moment is about trying to loan players or get players who are down the pecking order or just been released from Premiership/Championship clubs or some of the up and coming lads from L1/L2 Come on our recruitment team please look a little bit further than your nose end. Your little black books should be full of possibilities!!
  5. A lot of the players that contributed to our relegation have now left the club thank goodness. We are all too aware that their lack luster performances were hard to watch and would have been worse had we been able to be in the stadium(s). So right now we are in a rebuilding situation so while we, as supporters, really do want our team to do well and hopefully get us back in the Championship at the first attempt, in reality that is surely a big ‘ask’ for next season but football’s a funny game and as they say ‘you never know’ Lets just get back into Hillsborough and give the team our full vocal support. We’re getting ready for the start of what should be an interesting season. It can’t be much worse that last season.
  6. Posts in the last few days have praised Bola for his performances and intimated that we were about to sign him which apparently would have been a great coup. Why all of a sudden are we not signing him ? seems strange !!
  7. I think that could be questionable as both Wildsmith and Dawson were making fundamental errors long before Rhodes left and evidently from their showing in the pre-season games they both continue to show completely no progress. Surely we need better
  8. In my opinion both Dawson and Wildsmith have had a ‘cushy’ job for a few years now. Never really regarded as serious contenders for Westwood’s number 1 shirt they have sat back and been content to wait until such a time when Westwood got injured etc. To be fair I blame their lack of progress quite squarely at the feet of Rhodes and Weaver. Just what have they been drilling in to them for the last 2-3 years. They have been lacking all the attributes a good keeper should have, command of his area, the skill to know when to catch or punch the ball and the vision to pick out players who are in good attacking positions linked with the ability, positioning sense and agility to be in the right place at the right time. Sadly the good signs they showed as understudies just hasn’t improved to be considered now as our club’s no.1 shot-stopper. Sorry but regretfully they are just not good enough.
  9. Totally agree but he’s not getting any younger so maybe it is time to ‘cash in’ on him after all he will start to deteriorate at some point in the future. Admittedly we don’t know how many good seasons he has left in him.

  11. His pockets are nearly empty if he can’t cover wages - so he’s definitely NOT been funding the club all year, if he had we wouldn’t have the current wage issues that are hindering our progress and recruitment.
  12. With only about 6 weeks before the start of the new season and already into our pre-season in Wales when can we expect the announcement on new player signings. Surely everyone would agree new players take time to settle in to new surroundings so we need players NOW or we will be weeks behind the other teams in L1. If we don’t get the embargo lifted soon by posting our accounts I believe we as fans will be subject to sub- standard football again only this time far worse.
  13. Bolton did indeed sell Madine to Cardiff supposedly for £6 million but ironically the transaction has never appeared in their accounts and Bolton fans believe the money never came anywhere close to the club. Maybe there are more chairman than just Chansiri that like to fiddle with the accounts !
  14. The financial year that the accounts cover we were in the Championship so we should have already submitted them. I don’t believe Chansiri has ever submitted the accounts either early or on the last return date since he has been the owner of our club. That is just one example of his inept attitude to running SWFC. He doesn’t listen to anyone including the authorities, he must surely believe he’s above everyone and rules don’t apply to him. IDIOT !!!!! With this plonker in charge we will be in administration before Xmas
