Some protest organised last night.

According to the organisers there were about 4000 fans outside waiting to get in before the match.

Also some signs were erected in the ground and some balls were thrown on the pitch.

What was everyone's verdict? Do you think this will have the desired effect and Ken will simply walk out?

Regards.

HN.

No- I don't think it will affect Ken in the slightest but it raised the profile of the club's problems to a much wider audience. Minimal damage done to the club but a higher profile about the issues is the outcome.
Anderson won't give a monkeys as BWFC is just a business venture for him.

Did you extricate them yourself or did you let a big burly steward get them out for you?

I think it was the best organised protest there has ever been at Bolton, I was pleasantly surprised by the number of people up for it.It wasn't a handful of cranks as the Anderson apologists would have loved it to have been but several hundred if not a thousand and more protesting about the amount of money he and his idiot son are taking from the club.There were banners and many photocopied posters being handed out

Ken has already shown he is a coward by not attending a match since November, and not having the balls to speak to Talksport or Sky, I would think someone lacking the balls  to front up to the fans and media will be upping his exit strategy.
Comparisons have been made with Blackpool, but i'm afraid for Ken that Bolton is a bigger club with a more hostile crowd than Blackpool is

I was surprised with the number who took part in the march, when i got to the ground at around 7.15 there were around 500 around the Lofthouse statue but the number grew considerably by the time they did the lap of the stadium.
The stuff that happened in the ground with the female steward being punched and coins being thrown at the grounds staff were completely unacceptable and whoever did this should be banned from the ground for years.
As for Kenocchio i'm sure in his next rambling communication he will say that it was a tiny minority and then rip into people on a personal level as he is prone to doing recently.

Perhaps that only thing it did - and could achieve was to make Anderson aware of the weight of feeling and frustration about his tenure and that it's not just a handful of moonmen like me who want him gone.

He will probably be slightly upset that there was no King Ken counter demonstration. His next press release will be interesting - will he ignore it or try to play it down?

What I hope it will achieve is to encourage him to stop playing the (alleged Very Happy ) twat at the negotiation table and do a deal that is good for the club rather than him personally, but i'm not banking on it.

It was a tiny minority to be fair.

14000 attended the game and apparently 4000 attended the "protest."

It would have been more interesting if something other than tennis balls were thrown too.

Such as? don't you realise that it's a banning and criminal offence to throw objects onto a football pitch.

Who cares? 

Something harder to clean up.

Paint, flares, animals for e.g.

They threw coins on the pitch whilst trying to hit the groundsman removing the tennis balls (and before they punched the lady steward).

Does that count?

Nothing like 14000 there.
It was more like 9000. Vast swathes of the stadium were vacant and in most others apart form knobend corner there was only a smattering of people.

Attack on steward and coin throwing at groundsman amongst incidents being investigated by the police and the club.

Glad to see the protest didn’t disappoint, what an embarrassment for the club if we couldn’t muster a response given what’s happening.

Will it have an affect? No, but we know Ken hates bad press so perhaps it will lessen his demands (no idea what they are) and hasten his departure.

Is throwing a coin on the pitch as serious as fiddling the VAT?

Are you really saying you support hooligans throwing missiles at people who are there only to do their jobs???

It's clear you have issues with KA but you have really lost the plot if you think committing a violent act towards some innocent club employee is ok because in your head Anderson is a crook.

You need to give your head a good shake.

He didn't say that.

I know what he said but he clearly was asking whether one illegal act was worse than another.

Both should be condemned and not made light of just because he's got a bee in his bonnet about Anderson.

He's replaced his tweet with a 'keep it zipped' emoticon which some have taken to imply the club had asked him to remove it whilst they are investigating the matter.

"Bolton will investigate a number of incidents, including the assault of a steward, which took place during Monday's 2-0 home defeat to West Brom.
A female steward is alleged to have been attacked by a fan and a number of coins were aimed at groundstaff from the stands at the University of Bolton Stadium".

It's taken from a club statement to Sky.

Better luck on your trolling next time.

No I wanted something difficult to clean up that would have delayed the game for hours.

If you're going to protest.. make an impact.
