And You Thought the Bolton News was Bad

And You Thought the Bolton News was Bad

The mood amongst Bolton fans has been much improved after Sunday`s win over West Ham. They`re getting a bit giddy over at the Manchester Evening News as well.

`No wonder the Trotters were smiling after their first win in the capital for 17 games and a first victory at Upton Park since 1964,` wrote one scribe.

That`s jolly nice, but a tad inaccurate. It`s not even in the right century. Bolton were last victorious at the Boleyn Ground in August 2005, when a breakaway goal by Ivan Campo proved to be decisive. It can be seen here. It`s worth having a look, just for the somewhat displeased reaction of a gentleman off camera.

Not to be outdone, the Bolton News is inviting readers to vote for their favourite Wanderers Premiership goal. `Youri celebrates after scoring against Arsenal in a famous victory`, runs the caption under the picture of a former Wanderers hero. Did Youri ever score in a Bolton victory over Arsenal, famous or otherwise?

No he didn`t. Djorkaeff got on the scoresheet as Bolton came from two goals behind to draw, and finish the Gunners title challenge in 2003. Very pleasing, and a much needed point, but not a win. A bit of a nuisance those facts aren`t they?

We also beat them 3-1 in the League Cup in November 94 on our way to Wembley, Super John with a brace if memory serves.

Wonderful to hear the comment from the "man in the crowd" towards the end of the clip.

Bolton Win At Shrewsbury

Second half goals from Mark Beevers and Adam Le Fondre, coupled with draws for Sheffield United and Fleetwood, handed Bolton a massive advantage in the race for automatic promotion, and whisper it, just four points off the Blades. It had been a tricky first half away to Shrewsbury, but those two goals in the second half managed to get us the three points and a clean sheet. It could come at a price though, as all three substitutions were made because of injuries.
