  • I am going tonight but not expecting much from Bolton. Still made no sense of Megson’s choice of team to play Sunderland to be honest. If Bolton lose tonight I think we are heading for the championship and deservedly so. I blame Gartside for poor management and poor choices of manager. Including Megson.

  • if you lose to derby at this patchy time bolton his going through you deserve to be in the championship. a draw should not be accepted by bolton fans.

  • Well you guys certainly needed that goal didnt ya – a real get out of jail free card – Up to 14th considering the rest of the results – I’m not sure that on it’s own will be enough to spark a revivial but at least it’s a start – Derby are all but down reall then Fulham I reckon so as long as Megson can grind out a few more victories (as boring as they may be) I reckon you’ll be ok
