Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers’ king of bling versus hip-hop’s king of bling. One spits rhymes and the other… well, he just spits. Can you tell the difference?

The BBC’s latest football columnist (and budding literary critic), Bolton skipper Kevin Nolan, has revealed he is a big fan of player autobiographies. With Ashley Cole’s book currently the hot topic for discussion, Nolan has stood by the would-be authors among his fellow professionals.

Watford blog site BHappy urged Hornets fans to smuggle bananas into the Reebok Stadium for last Saturday’s game against Bolton. Blogger Matt Rowson said the idea was: "In line with the national drive towards healthier eating habits and with a view to adding excitement and joy to potentially tedious away day trips." Unfortunately, Matt was […]

The Incredible Sulk that is Nicolas Anelka has completed his move to Bolton Wanderers from Fenerbahce in a deal for £8million. Anelka, who must surely be the most expensive player in the world by now (transfers combined… I can’t be bothered doing the maths), is set to join up with fellow strop, El Hadji Diouf. […]

I’ve been away this weekend and missed the footy highlights. Imagine my glee when I saw this. Goal. Of. The. Season. Yes, this early on. Mof Gimmers (Bolton Wanderers Fan)

Nicolas Anelka has been shooting his mouth off again, this time with claims that he’s very close to signing for Bolton. If Big Sam can control Le Sulk, this could turn out to be an inspired signing. Anelka’s still only 27, after all, and we know he can play a bit, as this fancy dribble […]

Bolton chase Diego Tristan

August 16th, 2006

So, Bolton are still searching for someone who can be deemed by the Bolton faithful as ‘a decent signing’. Fortune is injured, Meite is a defender… and fans like strikers! Step forward Diego Tristan, who may be pulling on the Wanderers’ shirt if the rumours are correct. Mof Gimmers

Bye Bye Borgetti say Bolton

August 7th, 2006

It’s looking like Mexico’s top goalscorer (ever) is making his way out of the Bolton camp, and decamping to the lucrative and sunny Saudi Arabia. Jared Borgetti is set to sign for some team no-one’s heard of (Al Ittihad for the record… I told you that you won’t have heard of ’em). Bolton gaffer, Big […]

So Bolton have a new away kit to replace the very attractive navy blue one of last season. With Reebok being the sponsor of the club, you would have thought that no expense would be spared… right? Wrong. It seems that Reebok has forgotten about quality, and gone for cutting corners. No raised sponsor. No […]

Rumour Tuesday

July 24th, 2006

One of the most surprising bits of gossip today is the apparently successful £2.5million bid for Juan Pablo Sorin by Bolton. However, Pompey and Inter are still in the hunt for the Argentina skipper. Glenn Roeder is hopeful of signing German hitman Miroslav Klose, but fears their lack of European football next season will put […]

The Premiership will be a less interesting league without Jay-Jay Okocha in it. The Nigerian is leaving Bolton (Big Sam hasn’t renewed his contract) and heading to Qatar, where he’s signed a lucrative one-year contract with the excitingly named Sport Club. I’m sure defenders in Qatar’s top league are delighted at the news…

A rumour that seems to be spreading like wildfire (whatever wildfire is), is that Sam Allardyce is leaving Bolton to take charge of Sunderland. Some bookmakers have even suspended betting on Big Sam for the post. Allardyce still has four years left to run on his 10-year contract with Bolton, but new Sunderland chairman Niall […]

Another example of a team changing its away colours on a seasonal basis. Bolton played in dark blue away from home last season, so why change to maroon? Anyway, Reebok’s new away shirt for the Wanderers features its trademarked Play Dry technology, which apparently possesses ‘moisture management properties’. In other words, it dries fast cause […]

Argentina star Javier Saviola could be on his way to the Reebok, if his agent is to be believed. Bolton have joined the race to sign the Argentine forward, who is apparently no longer wanted by Barcelona (he spent last season on loan to Sevilla). Arsenal and Panathinaikos are also sniffing around Saviola like a […]
