While she is definitely warming up her vocal chords, the fat lady hasn't sung yet.

I hope I don't have to comment on here between tears and sniffles tomorrow, but I'm currently optimistic that this is all just high level insolvency brinksmanship. 

I mean, we can't die like this.

Can we?

Good luck mate.

Still alive, while Bury have died. 14 more days of torture, although, in reality, it could be over by the time I wake up (if I get to sleep), as the administrators have said that liquidation process is due to commence now.

It's increasingly looking like, if we survive this, Michael James needs a statue alongside Nat Lofthouse.

Oh he's a swivel eyed lunatic. Not a pot to piss in, hasn't put in any form of concrete bid, just stands in front of Nat while the local peer at him like a chimp in a zoo.

Even the rag redtops clearly don't take him seriously as all of his leaks come through the massive Jewish Telegraph.

Bolton Wanderers' survival has been secured after Football Ventures (Whites) Limited completed its protracted takeover of the club.

Administrators had warned that the club could be placed into liquidation on Wednesday without a finalised takeover.

It looked to have collapsed on Monday, leading to bleak warnings about the future of the 145-year-old club.

Don’t want to be seen to be attempting to put a dampener on things but anyone know how much this Football Ventures mob have, because it’s going to take a hell of a lot of money to get the club’s balance sheet back to £0?

That can be discussed tomorrow. 

All that matters is I have a club to support, and can now ask the admins to allow an early display name change ;)

Delighted. Even if it means that odious chode has made a fortune from the Eddie Davies Trust. Unfuckingbelievable that he's got away with this.

I'm gonna dust off the old literary analysis and complex web of bullshittery from my English degree and go for 'Pig on the Wing', please. I haven't had a silly name on here since the old days, when I had 'Nolan4England' for a while, chortle.

Explanation for anyone who can be arsed:

- Celebration of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason now being indirectly involved in the club through his wife (close to the title of one of their songs)

- Nod to the 'Trotters' nickname 

- Acknowledgement my youth playing style as a fat lad with no pace, but who could whip in a decent cross

Ta dah

I expect a waive of free transfers joining Bolton today tbh. 

It’ll be some story if they stay up this year. 

Jack Hobbs signed, with plenty of others like Craig Conway, Will Buckley and other training with the club expected to sign soon. 

I hope they keep it under wraps, if they do sign any more. Let Gillingham assume they're playing the kiddies and then BAM, unleash our tired old journeymen. 

 

*Also, I suggested Sharon Brittan was Nick Mason's wife. Not so, just business partner. Never mind.

Keith Hill: Bolton Wanderers appoint ex-Rochdale boss as manager

Bolton Wanderers have appointed Keith Hill as their new manager, three days after Football Ventures (Whites) Limited completed its takeover.

The League One club's future had been in doubt prior to the deal, with administrators warning of liquidation.

Bolton, bottom of the table on -11 points, suffered a third successive 5-0 league loss to Gillingham on Saturday.

Hill, 50, replaces Jimmy Phillips, who had been in caretaker charge since Phil Parkinson left on 22 August.

That is an excellent appointment for where we are right now. Two Bolton boys running their hometown club, and known for attacking football.

Absolutely what we need to bring together our fanbase and build that 'us against the world' mentality we'll need if we have any hope of performing miracles this year.

Liam Bridcutt is a really good addition for them.

He's a fighter, just what they need. He did a decent job for us and I know he fell down the pecking order at Forest but to be fair, I would expect him to be a stand out player in League One in his position.

They also signed Daryl Murphy. Yes, he's a Championship journeyman but he will be the exact sort of experienced player the club will benefit from having, especially helping the youngsters. Still quite fit for his age too, he will get goals.
