Premiership Preview: Bolton

Will Bolton wander too far south?

Interesting Wikipedia Fact: On February 20, 2007, Bolton Wanderers became the first club in the Premier League to announce a price reduction (10%) of their season tickets (for the forthcoming 2007/2008 campaign).[citation needed] Other clubs (Manchester City and Chelsea) announced price freezes, but Bolton were the first to claim an actual reduction.[citation needed]

Jackie’s Club Knowledge: I recall Bolton coming up and being favored for relgation. Then somehow they won their first three games and some fatheaded walrus-looking manager started talking about them winning the league. They finished 16th and I figured they would go down the following year, but instead that fat walrus kept them up, and also kept them every year since. Last season even got them into Europe. F*ck Botlon.

Worst Kit:

Fantasy: If Wanders are playing a weak side at the Reebok you could choose Anelka, Nolan, or Jussi. I wouldn’t consider any other player for any other game.

Best and Worst Possible Finish: 13th and 18th-I’m not the only one who thinks last year’s 7th place club  are in trouble. Sammy Lee is in over his head with this Bolton team that has failed to strengthen itself for the European campaign.  This is an old team whose negative goal difference did not match their league placement. Bolton conceded 52 goals with Big Sam’s long ball approach,  how many will they concede this year? I’m guessing enough o put them right in the middle of a relegation fight.
