He didn't really have a choice. Madine handed in a transfer request. No point in keeping someone on the books who doesn't want to be there. It's bad for the dressing room, could start all sorts of problems.

Nobody is arguing about that except you.

Kane's a nice guy - at least I've never seen him post anything malicious in all the years I've known him on the forums.

He's more of a pantomime villain persona with the stuff he posts and I'm sure his intention is to not upset anyone to greatly with what he says.

Anyway we wouldn't be Nuts if we were all agreeing all the time would we!

Very Happy

Probably not the best adjective to describe a woman with but hardly hard-line personal abuse on social media really is it.

(I think she's shed a lot of weight since then anyway from what I've read from what she has put out in the public domain. Congratulations on achieving this too if by any chance you read this).

Obviously I wouldn't want anybody to leave Nuts for what people might say but we simply aren't all things to all people and if being called fat (and I guess she must have though so herself and hence the diet) is to much abuse to tolerate, then perhaps Nuts was never going to be her cup of tea.

Kane isn't a saint but he's not the Devil he's somehow made out to be.

It’s the most cowardly form of bullying imo. Would you like it to happen to your wife or daughter?

Eh??

I think you've got me mixed up with someone else. I've never said I didn't want Flanagan playing for us any more than I wanted Diouf or Madine being in the side.

I'd rather football have stronger morals about these issues but I realise that the law has judged them and we move on.

As for the Sluffy women they are more than capable of dealing with anyone disrespecting them and in this day and age of all consuming social networking they can look after themselves well enough not to go flouncing off sites because someone called them a name or two.

I'm sure your female relatives are made of sterner stuff too.

I wouldn't consider calling someone fat as being malicious particularly as that person has since gone on to lose several stones in weight.

In retrospect it was probably fair comment at the time.

I rather he had not said it though but it was hardly the worst thing we have ever seen on Nuts before or since was it?

The past few weeks at Bolton Wanderers have certainly been hectic ones, but as anybody who works in football will tell you, this game waits for nobody.

Firstly, I am sure you have all read in the media this week about the club being in court regarding a petition that had been served.

The petition itself, served by HMRC, was dismissed by the court after we had settled last month, and we can now move forward and focus on on-field matters and our unified aim of retaining our Sky Bet Championship status.

When it boils down to it, the game itself on a Saturday afternoon or Tuesday night is what we are all working towards across the business on a daily basis, and I am very much looking forward to our encounter against Fulham this weekend and then down at Cardiff on Tuesday.

As I mentioned in my last set of notes, the performance the players put in against Bristol City last time out, very much in the face of adversity following a difficult week for the club as a whole, was hugely inspiring and pleasing for all involved at Bolton Wanderers.

We undoubtedly have a group of players who are determined to fight for the club’s cause and we cannot ask for any more than what they portrayed in our last home game.

I was especially pleased with the contributions of players who have been somewhat on the periphery of the team inside the first half of the season, with the likes of Derik and Dorian Dervite having bided their time and they are now reaping the dividends with their respective stints in the side.

We could have very easily allowed them to move away from the club be it on a temporary or permanent move during the recent transfer window, but myself and the manager Phil Parkinson were of the same mentality that it would be beneficial to keep them here and it has certainly proved to be the right decision.

Although the transfer window has shut meanwhile, we are still actively looking to recruit free transfers to ensure that we have strength in depth ahead of a crucial spell in our campaign.

Over the course of the next 49 days, we will play ten games and if we are able to come out of that period in a strong position, hopefully still outside of the relegation zone, then I do not think we could hope for more ahead of the final month or so of the season.

We have had a number of trialists at the club in recent weeks, with both Marouane Chamakh and Jean-Philippe Mendy being given the opportunity to prove their worth.

Unfortunately however, we had to take the decision to not pursue with deals for them as we believed that it would take time for them to be ready to fight for a first team place and we need players who are ready to be thrown into the mix and hit the ground running.

We will continue to scour the market however as we look to ensure that we are as strong as possible as a unit in the second half of the season.

Following Gary Madine’s departure, it was well documented that we enquired after a number of notable strikers in the division and I can confirm that we submitted bids for two Championship forwards.

We did try for others, but unfortunately their moves to other clubs were too far down the line by that point and so we were unable to make inroads with them.

I have every faith though that the players we currently have at our disposal are more than capable keeping this great football club in this division.

Any players that come in at this point will have to complement the squad we currently have but with the superb backroom and scouting staff we have at this club, I am confident that anybody who does make the switch will do just that.

As usual, let’s be loud, let’s be proud and let’s get behind the team this Saturday.

Kind regards,

Ken

Although our last home fixture against Fulham was just over a week ago, since then, the team have been on their travels down at Cardiff and Queens Park Rangers respectively and have certainly been clocking up the miles, with our superb fans also backing the team in their numbers.
Firstly, the result and performance at the Cardiff City Stadium was particularly disappointing considering how well we had played in our home games against Bristol City and Fulham in the run up to this fixture.
We had the chance to move even further away from the relegation zone and bring other teams into the mix. Sadly however, it didn’t happen, and although the team put in an improved performance at Loftus Road on Saturday, Mark Little’s sending off early in the second half was very much the turning point in the clash.
Personally, I think a straight red was harsh, but in all honesty, I think the less said about the officials’ performance and decisions, the better.
That said, the players pulled together and defended resolutely for the most part, only being undone by a set-piece header and then a close-range header right at the death when we were chasing for an equaliser.
Of course, it was frustrating to leave the game empty handed, but we should not forget that injuries have already had an effect on the manager’s recent team selections with many players unavailable for selection.
No doubt, injuries and suspensions will continue to take their toll in the next few weeks which was the reason that I made the decision not to let any players go out on loan in January, despite bringing five players in to the club.
But, as we have proven time and time again, this team relishes challenges and the adversities that we face at present will only add fuel to our fire ahead of Tuesday’s game.
Our encounter with Sunderland will be our fifth game inside 17 days and, given the other results around the bottom of the league at the weekend, if ever there was a match worthy of the title ‘a six pointer’, then this could be it – even at this stage of the season.
Having looked at our upcoming fixtures alongside those of the teams around us however, Tuesday’s result will not be a defining one and as I have repeatedly said, there will be many twists and turns between now and the end of the season with the strong possibility being that our destiny will go right to the wire.
If we can maintain our home form though and pick up all three points against one of our relegation rivals in midweek, then the rewards are there for us all to see, as it will put more pressure on them and alleviate some for us.
It will be paramount to our success that we ensure that the atmosphere at Macron Stadium however is as intimidating as it can be from kick-off - every ounce of effort from you, our supporters who chant and show their passion throughout each game, makes a huge difference and inspires and drives the players on.
After Sunderland on Tuesday, we have got six games remaining on home soil this term and while we will certainly need to pick up points away from Macron Stadium, I believe our home form will be the key to our destiny - and every single Bolton Wanderers fan can play their part.
None of us will forget how you all came out and got behind the team in the run-in last season and effectively helped get us over the line and achieve promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship at the first attempt, and I truly believe that, if we can achieve that same level of support in this run-in, it will ensure we maintain our Championship status and set us up for consolidating our position next season.
In an effort to try and encourage as many supporters as possible to come along and get behind us, we will be launching our “No Place Like Home” ticket package for our final five games this season at Macron Stadium this week.
This will run for our matches against Aston Villa, Birmingham, Millwall, Wolves and Nottingham Forest with packages costing from as little as £80.
I really hope you will all replicate your support for the club as you did last season and come along and get us over the line as we head towards the Championship’s climax.
If you cast your minds back to the Bristol City game, even though it was on a Friday night and broadcast live on Sky Sports, the noise you all made was remarkable and helped us to the victory, with the manager and players recognising that in their post-match interviews.
Let’s have more of the same in midweek and between now and the end of the campaign and I am certain that we will climb the table and inch closer to our target of staying in this league.
Very soon, we will be announcing details about next season’s season tickets and we’ll be looking to reward current season ticket holders to express our gratitude for their loyal support. Please keep your eyes peeled on the club’s communication channels over the coming weeks for more information.
Away from matters on the pitch meanwhile, it was announced last week that British boxing heavyweight champion Sam Sexton will be defending his belt against challenger Hughie Fury in the Premier Suite at Macron Stadium.
This will be the first time that the British heavyweight championship will be contested live on free-to-air television in seven years.
The fight, which will take place on Saturday 12 May, is a real coup for the club and hotel
and joins other high profile events, such as the summer Little Mix and The Killers concerts at the stadium.
Macron Stadium is getting back on the map as a major venue, not just for football, but for a whole host of other events and sporting activities and this versatility of course helps to bring in additional revenue which ultimately benefits your football club.
Your support is very much valued and appreciated by everybody at the club. Ultimately, Bolton Wanderers is your club and you are the lifeblood of this incredible institution.
As always, let’s be loud, let’s be proud and let’s get behind the team this week as we look to put some daylight between ourselves and the bottom three.
Kind regards
Ken

He might take on trying to get the club to break even on a sustainable basis i.e. without selling our best players to offset trading losses? 

Another season in the Championship would help.

As you wish -

KEN Anderson wrote: Gary Madine’s big-money deadline day sale to Cardiff City was a game-changer at Wanderers.

Originally forecast to lose between £5-6million this season, the transfer fee received last month for the 27-year-old target man could put the Whites’ annual accounts back on an even financial keel for the first time in more than a decade.

Championship survival is the aim between now and the summer, when Anderson claims there is still work to be done to bring the wage budget completely into line.

And the chairman hopes that if the Whites can succeed in their bid to stay in this division they will be able to invest more heavily in the playing staff.

“That amount of money changes the season totally,” he said of the Madine deal, understood to be worth £6million. “We are now very, very close to be breaking even.

“We have still got players who are costing us a lot more than we should be paying for them, and that loses the club a lot of money.

But going into next season I think we have got a budget in mind to break even.”

....

Anderson said the decision to sell Madine was made bearing in mind Wanderers’ operating costs - but also when the deal offered by Cardiff was too good for the player or the club to refuse.

“His mind was set to go to Cardiff, challenge for the play-offs etc,” he said. “They could be a Premier League club next year and they probably offered him a lot more than we did.

“Probably two to three days before the transfer window closed the writing was on the wall he was going to go, for me.

The view in the end was that we didn’t really want a player here who didn’t want to be here, so the best thing was to do the best deal we possibly could.

“I think it’s the most profitable deal this club has ever done. And because of the crazy market of transfers in the Championship, I think we ended up getting a good financial deal.

My aim is to stay in this league, then go on and do better things. But I have also got to look at the financial side for us to carry on being a club and give ourselves the best chance going forward".
