Bolton travel to West Brom tomorrow, with a small minority of supporters threatening to resurrect last season`s protest against the club hierarchy. It is to be hoped that such action does not materialise.

In recent games against Blackburn Rovers and Stoke, Whites fans have been arguing and fighting amongst themselves. It makes the match experience less enjoyable and gives encouragement to the opposition. Some, who have followed the Wanderers for decades, no longer feel like going to the game.

Of course fans are entitled to express an opinion, but there are better avenues for doing that. This and other sites have forums, which are monitored by the club. Social networking sites and online petitions are another way for those disaffected to make their feelings known. In addition, it is straightforward to contact BWFC directly.

The games at Middlesbrough, Spurs and Chelsea last year, were everything that a travelling fan could want, with everyone getting behind the players and being vociferous in their support. That encouragement contributed directly to Bolton escaping from relegation. Let`s have some more of that.
