Hello and welcome mate.

Interesting development.

Thanks for informing us, is there anything more you can share with us?

I am sure like me many of you are very disappointed in yesterday’s result at Molineux and like me are struggling to come to terms with it. All l can think of at this moment is it’s probably a case of the least said about the performance the better.
As the manager has already said the goals conceded were soft and at times compounded further by poor defending, albeit against a very good team who have spent big but wisely. Like Phil, I think Wolves will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season
I am sure that the players will be hurting and very disappointed with this result particularly after all the hard work that they have put in recently. They also know that they have not only let themselves down but they have let you, the fans, down as well.
That said, we must not linger on excuses or explanations and must put this result behind us, dust ourselves down and get back on the training ground on Monday and ensure the performance during this Saturday’s game against Barnsley is much better.
Having now lost our recent unbeaten run of seven games, all of the players need to take a long and hard look at the performance and get back to the hard work on the training ground, and bring that to Saturday’s game to ensure that we achieve an immediate return to winning ways .
It is always easy to criticise after a performance like yesterday’s and say maybe we should have done this or that, but that won’t change the result.
That said it does create the opportunity to reassess everything and give consideration to thinking about bringing some of the players who have been on the periphery and knocking on the door back into the equation.
It is always difficult to change an unbeaten team and it is often right that we repay the players’ efforts and performances by fielding an unchanged team, but I am sure that Phil and his team will reflect on yesterday’s game and give a great deal of thought this week about the team selection and make the right decisions.
As l said above, we - and by this l mean the players and all of us supporters - must not dwell on the result, as that won’t achieve anything; everyone needs to put it behind them and move on to the next game and winning ways.
I hope to see as many of you as possible back at Macron Stadium for Saturday’s game against Barnsley.
As always let’s be loud and let’s be proud and let’s get behind the boys!
Kind regards,
Ken

The rift between Chairman and Managers starts here and so will a decline in form. Start with this nonsense and we've no chance of getting out of relegation.

I think Anderson is getting desperate and that a manager change is all he can muster up in hopes that something changes on the pitch. We have nothing else available to us change our fortunes.

Our purple patch is over and we're still bottom.

I am delighted to be able to let you know that Macron Stadium will once again be staging a concert.
Little Mix will be performing here at the ground on Saturday 14 July as part of their Summer Hits tour – and it marks our return as a leading concert venue in the North West.
I’d like to thank Suzanne Speak and her team in the hotel, and to everybody at the club for all their hard work in making this happen.
Concerts are a very valuable revenue stream going forward for the business and it’s fantastic that we are now back on the map in this regard.
We are also working hard to secure more events in the future and we’ll keep you posted on this.
Tickets will be going on sale this coming Thursday 30 November at 9.30am and will be available from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Back to matters on the field meanwhile, I hope to see as many of you as possible back down at Macron Stadium for our game against Barnsley on Saturday.
Your support truly is imperative to our success this season and you have proven on many occasions just how influential you can all be with your backing.
It truly does make the world of difference and you can be the twelfth man this weekend for a hugely important game.
It is crucial that you get behind the team in your numbers – ultimately, our games throughout December could prove key in terms of giving us a realistic chance of climbing up the league standings and starting another unbeaten run on Saturday could be the catalyst for just that as we bid to retain our Sky Bet Championship status come May.
The perfect example of what an intimidating and vociferous atmosphere can do for a team was evident at Molineux on Saturday, as it was in our games against Sheffield United and Bradford City last season.
At the weekend, the home fans roared Wolves onto victory and that is the kind of cauldron of noise we need to achieve to help support the team.
Elsewhere, I will personally be visiting the club’s hospitality suites to answer your questions prior to the Barnsley game, with places in our award-winning matchday hospitality still available from just £70 per person.
Having met a number of you prior to the Reading game in Reflections Restaurant, I am very much looking forward to getting the chance to speak with more of you this weekend and answer any questions that you may have about your football club.
To book, please call 01204 673761, email [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or buy online HERE.
This week also marks the last opportunity for fans to purchase our special Festive Bundle and watch our three home games in December against Barnsley, Burton Albion and Cardiff City for just £65 for adults, £50 for Under-23s and Over-65s and finally £20 for Under-18s.
We understand that December can be an expensive month for families in the run-up to Christmas, so I hope that this offer will allow supporters who would otherwise struggle to attend at this time of year the opportunity to do just that.
Half season tickets are now on sale too, with details of such available by CLICKING HERE.
All tickets can be purchased directly from Bolton Central, by visiting our online ticket portal at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or calling 0844 871 2932.
Next Monday meanwhile will see a number of events taking place at Macron Stadium, with the club’s annual Carol Service being held in the Premier Suite from 7pm onwards, tickets for which cost just £1 and can be purchased from our retail outlet.
There will also be a number of first team players in attendance prior to the service itself for a signing session in Bolton Central – details of which will be announced on our social media outlets and website this week.
Your support of the football club in many different ways however is wholly appreciated and will ultimately play its part in helping the players out there on the field.
Kind regards,
Ken

Everybody here at Bolton Wanderers is heading into this weekend's Sky Bet Championship encounter with Barnsley with renewed vigour and determination after last Saturday's defeat at Molineux.
Like myself, I am sure the overriding feeling following our last game against Wolves was one of abject disappointment, but now that a little time has passed, with the opportunity to reflect and review, everybody has to move forward and put that result to bed.
As the manager said following the final whistle, Wolves are a side who will certainly be there or thereabouts come the end of the campaign and I am sure there will be plenty more teams who will fall to defeat against them this term.
After a result like that in football however, it is imperative to bounce back as quickly as possible and having spoken with Phil Parkinson, I know that the hours and hard work put in by the players on the training ground since that match is proof of their determination to do just that and the spirit, camaraderie and belief of the players is palpable when you visit our Lostock base.
Prior to last Saturday, we were seven games unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship – a statistic which, given our start to the campaign, was incredibly pleasing.
Also, in our last nine matches, we have added 11 points to our tally, followed by Birmingham City (eight), Sunderland (seven) and Burton Albion (five) – I would like to thank The Bolton News’ Marc Iles for bringing that fact to my attention.
These results have been brought about by concentration, focus and application and the never-say-die attitude of the entire squad. If we can continue along these lines, we will start to climb out of the relegation zone as the season continues.
It is down to the players now however to dust themselves off and restore the pride that you have all felt whilst leaving our games in recent weeks.
Success is something that comes when everybody works in tandem and that is never truer than in football. It also breed confidence and that is what we need to focus on again.
When everybody is singing from the same hymn sheet and the belief is there across the board, anything is possible.
Your support truly is imperative to our success this season as it was at crucial times in 2016/17 and you have proven on many occasions just how influential you can all be with your vociferous backing from the start and throughout our games.
It truly does make the world of difference and you can be the twelfth man this Saturday for a hugely important game with your vociferous support.
It really is crucial that you get behind the team in your numbers – ultimately, our games throughout December could prove key in terms of giving us a realistic chance of climbing up the league standings and starting another unbeaten run this weekend could be the catalyst for just that as we bid to retain our Sky Bet Championship status come May.
Off the field, we were delighted earlier this week to confirm that Little Mix will be performing here at Macron Stadium on Saturday 14 July as part of their Summer Hits tour, thus marking our return as a leading concert venue in the North West.
I’d like to thank everybody at the club for all their hard work in making this happen, with us having experienced unprecedented demand for tickets.
A limited number are still on sale via various outlets, confirmation of which can be found at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but I would encourage you all to act quickly to avoid disappointment.
We also have some of our fantastic hospitality packages available for the concert, details of which can be found here.
Concerts are a very valuable revenue stream going forward for the business and it’s fantastic that we are now back on the map in this regard. We are also working hard to secure more events in the future and we will keep you posted on this.
I truly believe that if everyone in and around the town comes along and supports the club and hotel events, then we will slowly, but surely, get back to where this great club once was and will be a force to be reckoned with once again, not forgetting the help it gives in returning us to a financially sustainable basis.
This coming Monday meanwhile, there will see a number of events taking place at Macron Stadium, with the club’s annual Carol Service being held in the Premier Suite from 7pm onwards, tickets for which cost just £1 and can be purchased from our retail outlet.

As always, let’s be loud, let’s be proud and let’s get behind the team this weekend.

I was hoping that following the demonstration of the gulf in class at Wolves, Anderson was going to announce that he'd finally decided to put his hand in his pocket and produce 20 or 30 million to boost the squad.


...and then I woke up.

The elation derived from the performance and manner of our victory against Barnsley was only surpassed by the news at full-time that the three points had lifted us out of the relegation zone for the first time since August.


Granted, tonight's contest between Birmingham City and Wolves may alter that for the time being, but there is a genuine belief amongst the players, staff and supporters that we have got what is necessary to climb the table and allay the fears of relegation.

On Saturday we saw a never-say-die spirit from the players who didn't let their heads go down when Barnsley equalised. After gaining a two-goal cushion, we saw resilience from the team who defended as a unit to ensure the three points were staying on home soil. We also saw flair and finesse, especially from Mark Little whose goal was wonderful.

Slowly but surely, we are narrowing the gap between us and the other teams in the bottom half of the table and bringing them in to the equation.

We have now only lost one out of our previous nine matches and are five games unbeaten at Macron Stadium.

Our home form will be the key to our progress in the league and it is that very reason why we need as many supporters as we can to attend our remaining games.

As I said, we are five games unbeaten on our own patch and we need to turn Macron Stadium back into the fortress it became last season.

This is where every Wanderers fan can play their part. Bring your friends, family and colleagues along with you and if we can aspire to reach the 20,000 plus crowds we experienced last season, I have no doubt that we will climb the table and retain our Championship status.

The extra noise right from the kick off and throughout the game, whether we are winning, drawing or are behind, will lift the team and inspire them. We need to intimidate our opponents throughout and remind them that they are in the midst of an intense battle.

Following on from my Q&A with supporters in the hotel prior to the Reading game, I had the pleasure of visiting our hospitality suites prior to kick off on Saturday to chat with our fans there.

I plan to make dialogue with all our fans a regular occurrence as it completely reaffirms my belief that the people of Bolton have so much passion and love for their club.

l found the questions about investment to be pertinent and totally relevant to where the club is today and I fully understand and appreciate the concerns and aspirations of everyone.

I can also totally relate to the questions about the transfer window and hope that l was able to give some guidance on where we are and what we are trying to achieve, but as l said and will keep repeating that if only the missing supporters from last season were to return for the final 13 home games, this would give us a far greater chance of bringing in some more players to strengthen the squad in January as the potential additional revenue to the club could be in the region of circa £3million.
Can you imagine what clout that would give us in the forthcoming window?

That's just how important it is to get everyone back at Macron Stadium.

Our [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of the campaign and are available to buy right up until kick off on New Year's Day.

If you are able to, now is the time to buy your season ticket and reaffirm your support for the crucial run-in. By joining all our other season ticket holders, you will be making a great saving compared to buying tickets on a match-by-match basis and you will also be committing your support for the team. 

Our popular away shirts are now back in stock just in time for Christmas and we expect them to sell very quickly.

Make sure you order one today by visiting [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Whilst you are there, why not take a browse across our entire range of merchandise which will make ideal festive gifts.

Our names go into the hat tonight for the Emirates FA Cup Third Round draw, and I'm sure many of you have your thoughts as to whom you would like us to play against.

Whoever we draw, and whether it is home or away, we will be doing our utmost to go as far as we can in the competition. The FA Cup is a very special tournament for the club given our history in it.

On Saturday, we travel to Nottingham Forest where I am confident our good form will continue and I hope as many of you as possible are able to travel to the City Ground to get behind the boys.

Finally, I'm delighted to be able to announce that Bolton Whites Hotel have secured a lucrative contract with a Chinese based language training school.

The deal represents a major coup for the business and is a long term arrangement that is likely to grow even bigger. It will bring in a seven-figure sum to the business.

Representatives from the Hotel flew out to the Far East last week, at very short notice, and took part in some challenging negotiations to complete the deal.

This is a really exciting opportunity and the team have built a great relationship with the school. I'm really looking forward to welcoming our guests in 2018.

More details about this will be announced in due course.

Please continue to support all the events that the hotel hosts including the Aladdin pantomime which gets underway very soon. Starring Bolton's very own Stu Francis, the panto will be a great opportunity to treat your family over Christmas while tickets [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Whilst it was entirely predictable that the owner wouldn't be investing any of his own money in the club, it is still something of a shock when he directly appeals to the fans to cough up an extra £3 million.

Also as predicted earlier in this thread, he has now handed over the moral responsibility for our January transfer budget to the fans - so if we don't sign anyone it's the fans' fault.

Very Happy
....one that only does what he wants.

The irony is that if the fans do cough up £3 million they will still have no shares in the club whereas Anderson "bought" a controlling interest with the club's own assets. 

All fan contributions will maintain/enhance the value of the club which will go into Anderson's pocket when he sells up so effectively this is an appeal for  Ken's Retirement Annuity Pension Pot. Or KRAPP if you prefer....

I was extremely pleased to see three of our players Ben Alnwick, Mark Little and Sammy Ameobi named in the Championship Team of the Week for last weekend and I am sure that you will all agree with me when I say that they all thoroughly deserved their places.


Personally, l think there were several others who also deserved to be included - in particular Gary Madine - but as we all know, Gary battles away week in, week out without always getting the recognition that he deserves.

His time will come however, as l am sure it will for other members of the squad over the coming months, but for now let’s all be very pleased for those that were recognised last week as it was thoroughly deserved and l feel sure it is only the start of many more accolades to come.

Off the pitch, I have to say that the last few weeks have been some of the best and most enjoyable times for me at the club so far, as l have seen that all the hard work and efforts our staff have put in over the last 20 months starting to reap rewards and in turn, it is putting the club and Bolton Whites Hotel in a position to get back to where it once was.

Bringing Little Mix and The Killers concerts to Macron Stadium next summer is a major coup and just goes to show how far the club has come. Likewise, the hotel bringing in a seven figure contract as well just goes to show the progress that has been made and confirms that the confidence is returning in respect of the stability and future of both businesses generally.

As a result however the Ironman event hub – which is due to take place on the same weekend as the two concerts – will be moved from Macron Stadium to Queens Park. For more details on this, please visit The Bolton News’ website.
Please continue to support all the events that the club and hotel are hosting including the Aladdin pantomime which gets underway very soon.

Starring Bolton's very own Stu Francis, the panto will be a great opportunity to treat your family over Christmas while tickets can be [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].


I have been quoted on my recent comments meanwhile about getting our missing supporters back and what this would achieve and l really hope that everyone will take these comments on board and take advantage of our Half Season Ticket offer.

I would encourage you all to take advantage of this so that you can come along to Macron Stadium and get behind the team for the second half of the season as the players bid to ensure we retain our Championship status.

This offer expires at the end of the month however, so please act quickly to avoid missing out by phoning Bolton Central on 0844 871 2932, visiting [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or popping in store in person.

Off the pitch, this week has also seen more development going on up at our Lostock training base with the unveiling of our new gym, paid for by Bolton Wanderers Development Association Lotteries – details of which can be [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - and also the arrival of our new Dome which will provide an alternative venue to train in for both our Academy youngsters and the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust.

The Dome itself was crucial to the Academy retaining its Category Two status and I would like to thank the BWDA for their financial and general support on this matter.

Their hard work and efforts have ultimately made all of this possible and it will reap benefits for both the football club and community for years to come.

Back to matters on the field, it was extremely pleasing to see us draw Premier League opposition in the form of Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup and the fact that it is a home game is a huge boost for us as we look to cause something of an upset.

I am very much looking forward to the game already and having listened to supporters’ comments regarding lowering our ticket prices, I have taken that on board and as a result, for a game against a top flight outfit, our prices will be £15 for adults and £5 for concessions across all areas of the ground.

On-sale dates for this game will be confirmed in due course.

I hope as many of you as possible will take advantage of this promotion and come along, get behind the team and help get us into the fourth round of this prestigious competition.

For the cup game, we will also be offering excellent rates for those wishing to take advantage of our award winning hospitality with places in the Platinum Suite just £60pp or £50 for members for a one-course meal, with our executive boxes available for just £650 for ten guests.

To take advantage of these offers, please contact our Sales Team on 01204 673 761.

Back to matters on the field meanwhile and we head down to Nottingham Forest this coming Saturday looking to build on our win over Barnsley which saw us rise out of the division’s bottom three.

Forest will certainly provide stern opposition, but we have been extremely unlucky in our past couple of away games not to pick up maximum points, Wolves aside, and I am confident that the first league victory on our travels will arrive sooner rather than later.

And with your superb backing which you showed in spades against Barnsley, there is no reason why that cannot happen this weekend.

Let’s be loud, let’s be proud and let’s get behind the team.

Kind regards,
Ken

Laughable.

Ken Anderson was a last minute stand in that stopped us going into liquidation when dean holdsworths grand ideas disappeared faster than a million of the 5 million he borrowed.

Yeah i get that but think it was all show from Eddie, liquidating the club would have made him a social pariah/ public enemy number one and I don't think he was up for the hostility of that.

I'm still astounded that some fans aren't grateful to Eddie for funding years of Premiership football, a couple of trips to Europe and some top quality talent signing for us. We all make mistakes and his was trusting Gartside to run an efficient ship. I don't blame him for switching off the tap having lost more money on a football club than any owner in history.
