This weekend, Bolton face Brendan Rodgers' Swansea side. Bolton have failed to win in their last two, while Swansea picked up their first win, since beat Man City by beating Steve Kean's Blackburn. Swansea and Bolton have already face each other twice this season, in a one sided 2-0 defeat for Bolton in October at the Liberty Stadium, and in a competitive Fourth round FA cup game at the Reebok, which Bolton won 2-1, thanks to a goals from Eagles and Pratley scoring against his former team.
Swansea will provide a tough test for Bolton, the performances of Swansea's on loan midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson has earned him, March's Player of the month. Bolton who have had an eleven day break in Dubai, will be hoping to replicate, the performances against Wolves and Blackburn and pick up three points

Hey folks, how’s it banging? So the transfer window is now officially closed and it has been a pretty interesting “deadline day” for the whites. Earlier in the day, we secured Arsenal midfielder Ryo Miyachi on loan for the reminder of the season, and then with seemingly no time to spare at all, it has been confirmed that young Watford striker Marvin Sordell has signed a three and a half year deal with the club. Along with the earlier acquisition of defender Tim Ream, I would say this has been a fairly successful transfer window (I also said this back in August), even if we have missed out on a few exciting names that have been muted (Zaha and Iturbe).

I don't know if anyone is interested in reading anything about Bolton Wanderers at the current time, I know I'm not. I have a proclivity toward ignoring the grim, and this is exactly the tried and tested method I'm sticking to during this loathsome period, I shall simply assume that eventually our poor run will just disappear, perhaps this weekend at Wigan.

I even found myself showing some interest in the national team just to allow myself the joys of supporting a “winning team,” I should have known better. I could instead just post an essay entitled “Why Arnold Schwarzenegger is the most underrated actor of his generation,” however, this would probably be seen as an attempt to shy away from my BWFC responsibilities (not that much BWFC things are happening)... anyway, here goes.

I have some working word-processing software again, so I can write something, text-edit just doesn’t cut it, and unfortunately, writing a blog on my phone is out of the question, as it seems to struggle with the word Cleverley.

Tomorrow the stagecoach heads to Loftus road to play the championship champions Queens Park Rangers. This game is the beginning of a new season for the wanderers, a season with difficult games coming thick, fast and early, and this game provides us with the perfect chance to get a good three away points and start as we mean to go on, well, until the week after.

Waiting, always waiting, but still no announcement of any new signings. It feels like the volcano is close to eruption, however, as it stands, it is still dormant. The squad numbers are still far too low, and Coyle really needs to work fast to bring in some quantity to the ranks, even if he can’t get any quality. I was hoping for some new faces before tonight’s friendly against the Shakers, and to be honest, as soon as I click “publish” and unleash this blog to the… few, I just know the Volcano will erupt and cause a small town in south west Peru to be evacuated (this fictional volcano eruption has caused no injuries).

I am writing this Blog while following the live happenings of our next pre-season opponents, Orlando City SC. They are currently playing the Rochester Rhinos and are leading 2-1 in the 67th minute, however, as the twitter feed has informed me, “we are currently in a lightning delay”. The casual phrasing of this tweet makes me wonder if this is a regular occurrence in the football leagues of the USA. I now feel slightly worried for the Wanderers when we take on “lions” tomorrow; I want my Paul Robinson to return home un-fried please.

A place of rides, rock (not the music), and David Vaughan, and a place where watching their football team is almost as exciting as riding their rollercoasters.

Tomorrow's match against Birmingham will hopefully spell the end of the doom and gloom that has surrounded the Reebok these past few years.
