Bolton Wanderers: New Year, Same Rubbish BWFC

Bolton Wanderers: New Year, Same Rubbish BWFC
A happy new year everyone. Actually, it hasn`t been for me so far and I doubt it going`s to be great or era defining for us Bolton fans. The car got broken into yesterday, and I spent most of the morning outside in freezing, raining Manchester waiting for police and glass repair people. So that`s where your Leeds match report went.

I didn`t watch the match (despite being in Leeds whilst it was on - bad fan or what?), but from I hear it wasn`t the best, and we probably would`ve got away with it if it wasn`t for those pesky penalties that go against us all of the time.

So, 2013, what are you going to do for us? Anything? This month is probably more important than any, as we can get rid of all this lot. I don`t really mean all of them, but there needs to be a shake up. However, I`m hearing reports of WHO?

Barnsley striker Craig Davies………………….can I get a rewind? And no, I`m not making a really stupid joke (I am), I am asking for a time machine so that I can return six years into the past and steal a blank check from Eddie Davies and pass it to Sam Allardyce to let him sign the players that WOULD HAVE MADE US GREAT.

I know it`s nothing more than wild thoughts but I often wonder about whether the sheiks that eventually took over Manchester City and financed their rise to the top of the game might have picked another Greater Manchester club if we had already made several steps forward in the right direction.

Anyway, it didn`t happen. And our hearts have been ripped out time and time again since the start of 2007. I fear it`s about to happen again. I don`t want to sign players from the bottom end of the Championship who know the league. I want players who are better than this shoddy operation, with it`s chubby refs and empty grounds. I want players who want the best and not only have the dreams, but the obvious ability to perform in the Premier League.

Like you don`t solve America`s gun problem with more guns, you cannot solve Championship mediocrity with more mediocrity.

Anyway, onto other matters. After a departure so on-off, Northern Rail are looking to hire him as a commuter train, Quentin will be leaving us after next week. I am on the lookout for someone to join me on the Vital Bolton writing team (that`s what I`m referring to it as now), of which I will keep you posted in the next couple weeks and would like to get wrapped up before I go on holiday two weeks on Sunday.

One final thing; more general football than just Bolton. Massive respect to Kevin-Prince Boateng, I hope any Bolton player does the same if bombarded with such abuse.

finding good players this month is like picking through pebbles on the beach hoping you just might turn over a jewel in the making. I have no problem with bringing the 'right' lads in from lower clubs, after all that is where all the great players start off from. Hope we find some with the energy, drive and fire to change our fortunes, particularly a striker with a poachers nose for goals

I fear that we are starting to fall into the same trap as Leeds and Man City fans have in the past. That being, we believe we somehow belong or deserve to be in the Premier league. Unfortunately this is not the case. I think we have some great players at our disposal but many of them are not living upto that potential. We also have some less capable players some of which are constantly derided on here and other sites. Whilst I certainly believe we have the right to air our opinions as we pay our hard earned cash to follow the whites, I feel that it is beginning to be destructive and ultimately unhelpful in attaining what we all want i.e. success. I am sure we have all had a bad day at work but how many of us have thousands of people then booing and calling for our heads? If we did how would it feel other than to make you more tense and less expressive for fear of making a mistake. Does anyone really think that when the players pull on a shirt they want to play badly? I think the time has come to really get back behind the team and club, let them know we are Bolton fans and will SUPPORT them. As for new signings, we will be lucky to attract anybody, who wants to join a team where you get booed at half time and where you are likely to be booed if you don't immediately play well. It is true that positivity breeds positivity and that is whats needed. so in the words of a certain inebriated t.v. chef "where are the real fans? lets be having you!!!" or something like that.

Well said, boltongav. Agree totally. And some of the fans already damning Craig Davies before he's put pen to paper... Ridiculous. I remember a unfashionable player, struggling for goals signing for us. There were a lot of grumblings; people thinking they knew it all before it even happened. How did that turn out for you, John McGinley?
