Bolton’s Season Starts Now (Or In A Fortnight)


Back-to-back 5-0 defeats, but this felt much more optimistic.

A week ago, we were thrashed in front of a record low crowd, maybe even the fact that nearly 150 years of history would end like that.

Fast forward seven days, we were still here, and under new ownership. Realistically, things weren’t going to change straight away. Only one new player had been brought in, with a probably not fully fit Jack Hobbs dropping into the centre of defence, while Dennis Politic came back into the team after a spell out with injury.

Some of the goals were a bit disappointing to concede. The last one was an own goal for example, while the second one felt as though it all happened in slow motion. Could Remi Matthews have got down to that quicker?

But, as Steve Evans (ironically Steve Evans, it has to be pointed out) said – at least we’ve turned up after getting rid of someone who shouldn’t be running a football club.

We move on to Tuesday’s home game against Bradford in the EFL Trophy, by which time we’ll hopefully have loads of new players through the door. There is then nearly two weeks, for reasons we sadly all know, before another league game. That will really be the start of our season, and hopefully we can start to try and claw back some points.
