Ah, so that means we've been paying Kenyon for a full season as a consultant to sit on his hands and do absolutely nothing until the summer - that makes perfect sense.

Carry on believing everything Iles says - it is far easier to do that than think for yourself.

Well as he's on the inside as far as info goes, I think he's far more reliable than you.
After being paid to report on BWFC for over ten years, Marc Iles thinks that Gordon Hargreaves  paid for the Reebok and he is reliable? Sorry Martin but surely you've got to see that there's something seriously ill-informed about anyone that claims that.

And lets not get started on BSA's claim that the Reebok cost £100m and that there was £45m debt when he arrived in 1999. (Page 145 of his autobiography if my memory serves me correctly)

Not when it comes to basic accountancy, company law and statutory requirements in running companies, which is my area of professional expertise and to be fair to Iles I'm sure he would be the first to admit that too.

As for his 'inside' info goes, then why is it that Nixon invariably beats him on reporting the 'big' stuff?  

Christ Isle's didn't even know that Kenyon was even at the club until Nixon's tweet!

Let me put it another way, if Iles was really so good at his job - with all that's happened at Bolton over the last ten years or so - all those juicy stories with many exclusives to be told, then why hasn't he been head hunted by now by a bigger paper/news organisation - or even a manage a promotion at the Bolton News - ffs he wasn't even given Bonnar's job when he was sacked took early retirement - that's how highly he's rated by those who manage him.

Ever wonder why that is?

Couldn't possibly be that he isn't rated particularly highly at his job by those in his own profession?

Surely not!

I don't expect Iles to be an accountancy or company law expert but I do expect him, after ten years in the job, to have at least a rudimentary understanding of the financial realities the club and its directors have faced and continue to face.

Iles proves over and over again that its beyond him but, I repeat, that its not just him at the BN that's had this problem and the BN isn't the only newspaper that's peddled half-baked hogwash about BWFC's financial issues.

The obvious question for TBW and Sluffy is that if you both claim to have the incredible ability to know "what Iles thinks", why don't you put your superpowers to use and write a few articles to keep us up to date with what's going on in the minds of Sharon B and Keith H which would be highly informative and of greater real value than the workings of a bloke trying to sell the local rag to the converted?

Better still could you let us know what's really going on with Boris, Trump, Putin and Xi Jinping? You could make billions whilst making the world a better place.

As for the Moneyball thing, this transfer window has the appearance of it having started already with an influx of undervalued rejects, albeit enforced by our financial circumstances. Perhaps not but it does smell like it.

Couldn't comment on the financial issues as I have a some expertise in business and accountancy - expertise which tells me that it's impossible to make any kind of assessment of what's really happening purely based on COHO filings and rumours. TBH the accounts themselves usually don't tell anything like the whole story and we haven't even seen them yet. What we need are mind readers....

Oh hello on the vodka already!

Ever thought that YOU are the one constantly telling everybody else about what everybody they should think - Brexit (for which you voted FOR don't forget), Johnson, Trump, Murdock, etc.

As for you "couldn't comment on financial issues" have you forgotten you spent the last THREE YEARS pontificating about what Anderson was doing to the club and yet TWO sets of Administrators forensically going through the books haven't found anything wrong?

Oh I forget though, you know better than them too!

Tell us again about you, a near SEVENTY year old bloke, playing football with the young lads from down the pub - makes me laugh every time I read it.

Who are you trying to kid - yourself maybe?

Who are you trying to kid - yourself maybe?
a) I never tell people what to think as I assume they are capable of making up their own minds. Don't shy away from saying what I think though.
b) I never claim to know what other people are thinking which was the actual point I made if you'd care to calm down and actually read it.
c) Having prepared financial statements for many organisations, I reiterate the point I actually made which is that the "books" don't tell the whole story of what is happening in the business - they provide an indication and primarily serve the organisation to e.g. attract investment, calm shareholders or whatever the business need is - as anyone with an accountancy background would know. 
d) Played OK on Friday and scored a couple (1 classy, one a bit fluky) during my 10 minute sojourn up top, but had 3 saved by a very good goalie. But most of the time I was putting their attackers in my pocket as per where I tend to play these days. FYI it's usually between 6 and 8 a side on a 4G pitch  - I'd be useless on a full sized pitch these days TBH.

Boon leaves Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers can announce that defender Jordan Boon has left the club by mutual consent and will now join Swedish side IFK Ostersund, on an LFE sponsored placement.

Speaking to bwfc.co.uk, Boon said: “I would like to thank everyone at Bolton Wanderers for what they have done for me during my time at the club.”

“This was a hard decision to make, but when the opportunity arose, I could not turn it down.”

"The fans were great to me this season and when I made my debut, were supportive throughout."

“I wish the club nothing but the best for the future.”

The 19-year-old made five appearances for the Whites this season, making his debut against Rochdale in the Carabao Cup in August.

We would like to thank Jordan for his contributions and wish him the best in his future endeavours.

Good luck to him. he did play a couple of games at left back for us i think? 
Ostersunds seems like a well run club and a few other English lads have gone over there especially when Graham Potter was in charge so it could work out well for him.

Read today Remi Matthews saying he was waiting for offers - personally don’t think he’s a great keeper but it’s a pain of a position to fill - particularly in the lower leagues.

The article did say that he's waiting to see what the club can offer him so I guess that he - like many, many other players are waiting see how the new economics of running a football club pan out. 
There was an article in the BN about how our managerial targets are seeking assurances about the club's finances - fair play to them - it's due diligence.
In the scheme of things it seems likely that there will be a lot of out of contract players and potentially some clubs could actually go to the wall, so from our perspective we just have to hope that the SMT have got a good plan and that the incoming manager has the wherewithal to compete for what s(he) needs within the parameters of our finances. 

It's a shame we had to sell Jake Turner as I'd have been happy to let Remi go to spend his wages elsewhere if we had Turner with Matt Alexander as back up - but I think MA is too young to take the number 1 slot at 18 especially without back up so we do need to pay for someone and it might as well be Remi if he's reasonable in negotiations.

I can only guess at the club's financial situation but I think it would be reasonable to assume we are probably as skint as a recently robbed refugee so as far as paying a fee for a manager goes mustn't there be a case for shoving the money on the pitch instead?
 
Isn't there a passable out-of-contract manager out there capable of getting the best out of our thin squad bolstered by the arrival of a new player paid for by the money we save on release clause fees?

I didn't think I'd arrive here but given his success in bringing young talent through PLUS a cash bonus the pendulum is swinging towards Lee Diddy for me. Don't think he's ever had £120 grand (or whatever the compen to barrow is) to spend before.

Or another OOC manager so we can put the money on the pitch. 




Be good for the transfer rumours thread too Smile

We need to start again from scratch. New manager and new players with no connection to BWFC.

Im with Nat, clean break time. To me Spearing is synonymous with a team of under performers, he always seemed to give his all on the pitch but I remember him getting out to Ibiza in the middle of a season we were really struggling.
