Bolton Wanderers’ woes continue

With the Championship campaign now a quarter of the way through, proceedings are looking bleak at Bolton Wanderers Football Club, on and off the field of play. Negativity is seemingly an over occurring theme in my fortnightly Shoot blogging exploits, but when your club are winless in two-months, there isn’t much to smile about. The Trotters have failed to register maximum points since the win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in September...

Where do Bolton go from here?

With Bolton Wanderers rooted firmly to the foot of the Championship table after 14 games of the season, the Trotters are in dire need of an upturn in fortunes, and fast, in order to salvage a campaign which is turning sour in a swift manner.

The phrase “never go back” is uttered a lot in life, and in the footballing world, but news of a possible return to Bolton Wanderers for Kevin Nolan over the course of the last few days has created widespread debate amongst the Trotters faithful. Nolan, aged 33, was released by West Ham United in August, has been a recent transfer target for Neil Lennon’s Bolton side. Recent reports in various newspapers over the weekend suggest that...

Prince can lead Bolton from the back

Prince-Desir Gouano may not have been a familiar face when he signed for Bolton in early August, however his early performances have seen him become a fan favourite during his short time at the Macron Stadium to date. Arriving in the North West as somewhat of an unknown quantity, Prince has subsequently put in man of the match displays against Nottingham Forest and Blackburn Rovers, as his Bolton career continues to take shape. The...
