Gerrard breaks Wanderers’ hearts By Liam Chronnell (from Bolton News) » Wanderers 2 Liverpool 3 TEN-MAN Wanderers were desperately unlucky not have taken at least a point against Liverpool in an absorbing contest at the Reebok. Brave Bolton were sunk by Steven Gerrard’s 83rd-minute – but the game’s turning point came when Sean Davis was […]

The Bolton Wanderers message board has been taken down.  Speculation suggestes that the official club forum is facing the axe to prevent Wanderers fans mounting a protest against unpopular manager Gary Megson.  For the message board to be taken down right before a big match and on the brink of transfer deadline day is a massive […]

Wanderers fans will no doubt be hoping Jloyd Samuel returns to the starting line up when Bolton take on Liverpool on Saturday at the Reebok.  Andy O’Brien could make a shock return in the cetre of defence though ahead of new boy Zat Knight, however, it is mainly speculation.  Bolton, still without a premiership goal, […]

Watching Bolton this season so far has not filled me with confidence.  Again I can’t exactly see us setting out to get three points.  Megson is the man in charge still, unfortunately, so we will go for a defensive policy, damage limitation.  It’s not too hard to second guess him, I will be shocked if […]

It is a known fact that Bolton failed to score in 18 of their league games last season.  But did you know that looking at Bolton’s strikers reveals an even darker statistic.  From the last 40 league games, including 2 this season, Wanderers strikers have failed to hit the back of the net on 29 […]

Gary Megsons men and a travelling army of fans watched Bolton claim their first win of the season so far.  Megson put out a full strength team in a bid to push through to the next round.  Wanderers went 1-0 up through Mark Davies on 41 minutes, his first goal for the club.  Muamba was in […]

Bolton don’t want another hiccup! The Carling Cup is upon us and the Wanderers will be trying to avoid getting themselves dumped out in the early stages again after last seasons humiliation against lower league Northampton Town. Megson is planning to field a decent starting line up in a bid to have a good cup run.  […]

Bolton feeling a bit Brown in the dumps Megson stuck with the same back four as the Sunderland outing despite the ripples of frustration his selection caused last week. Again Steinsson and Samuel were left out in favor of new signings Robinson and Ricketts.  In midfield, Mark Davies came in for Gavin McCann who could […]

Hull are going to attempt to take Bolton down, Megson says he expects Wanderers to pick up where they left off against Sunderland.  I find it difficult to believe this is the way Megson will set about the game.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he started more than 4 defenders.  We are running out of […]

“We concede too many… let’s get more bad defenders!” Not the exact words of the man Wanderers fans love to hate, but pretty close. The opening fixture of the season saw Bolton boss Gary Megson pick 3 new defenders ahead of last seasons regulars.  Jloyd Samuel seemed to have come on leaps and bounds and […]
