Scraping the Bottom of the Barrel

Scraping the Bottom of the Barrel

International breaks are a nuisance. Twelve members of Bolton`s squad are away and if the past is anything to go by, the team performance will suffer when they get back. There`s not much excitement with the England team either, as they face the might of Kazakhstan and Belarus. Not even Steven Gerrard & Co can mess that one up.

So, there`s not much to read about. Fortunately, the official site is on hand to provide a behind the scenes look at a little publicised area. Is Gary Megson spilling the beans about the Wanderers training methods? Maybe Phil Gartside is speaking of his admiration for Daily Mirror muppet Alan Nixon. Or could it be Kevin Nolan`s diet tip of the week?

No, it`s none of those things. Instead there`s a video of Club Chaplain Phil Mason talking about his role at Bolton Wanderers, from a religious boot camp at Lilleshall. Fascinating stuff. That`s sure to get the punters rushing to purchase a subscription to Wanderers World. Tomorrow, Doris the Cleaner reflects on the problems of keeping the Reebok Stadium spic and span.

Kazakhstan, Belarus, Monaco and the Faroe Islands should all be popped into a little league and only one from each mini league should qualify for the actual tournament qualification. German, Italy and England should not be wasting time having to travel Europe for pointless matches.

I actually disagree........these "little" countries have come on in leaps and bounds since being able to play top country teams over the last 10 years or so.....

Bolton Sign Off At Home With Win

Bolton won their final home game of the season yesterday as Stephen Dobbie's second half goal gave Wanderers a victory over playoff-bound Hull City.

The Whites' big chance of the first half fell to Darren Pratley, who was just six yards from goal but still managed to find himself being denied by goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic, before Zach Clough's effort was blocked.

The captain then did himself few favours farcically going over in the penalty area when anyone could see he hadn't been
