He drunk a lot after securing survival, now David Wheater has sort of had a go at making his own stuff. The Bank Top brewery has made a beer in his honour. I’d have a pint, but given his name, it’s a wheat beer, a style of which I’ve never really been a fan of.

The beer is available from the tap room on Belmont Road, whether it’ll ever be sold on the Macron concourses is another thing.

Naturally, it got me thinking if Bolton players past and present, what would they be?

Obviously, there is a Wanderer Pale Ale

John McGinlay would be a good candidate for a drink. I imagine it would have a crisp finish. As would brews in honour of Adam Le Fondre or Ivan Klasnic. And Nat Lofthouse naturally, although calling it ‘Nat’s Piss’ would be unfair on the great man.

Or maybe the Keith Andrews, Dean Moxey or Gary Megson offerings? Bitter, over-priced and with a lingering aftertaste?

There’s obviously room for wordplay. Dioufy’s lager would either be loved or hated, likely served in a spit-shined glass.
