It has been a while since I started using twitter, over 5 years (February 2009) according to twitter – around about the time I purchased my first Smartphone (HTC Dream). Back in the day it wasn’t so popular so I didn’t really think much about who I should and shouldn’t follow. I barely tweeted back then either however I used read twitter during my commutes to and from University. The more popular it became, the more people started to follow me and consequentially I would follow back if I knew them or were particularly interesting. It got to a point where I had so many tweets on my timeline that I needed to do something about it. Unfortunately this meant I couldn’t be on “#TeamFollowBack” anymore. So I started to be rather selective as to who to follow consequentially out of experience of twitter, became rules.
Looking back over the past few years, Bolton Wanderers have had some very hard times. From surviving the drop to the Championship in 2010/11 EPL season, followed by getting relegated on the last day of the 2011/12 season, followed by a fail attempt to reach the play off’s in the 2012/13 season after which another relegation scare in the 2013/14 season. Over the course of these 4 years, we have had numerous managers but none have had as much luck and success as we used to under Sam Allardyce.
Unfortunately, these poor run of years can take a financial effect on the club and Bolton Wanderers find themselves in £164m debt at the end of 2013. Although the chairman, Phil Gartside, has said he is not worried about the debt, there have been numerous moments in 2014 where I have to question his intentions.
It’s an end of an era for BWFC as Bolton Wanderers have failed survive in this seasons Premier League. As a BWFC fan, I am truly gutted! All it would have taken is a win from either one of the last two games which BWFC had an advantage on to actually ensure survival but since BWFC failed to capitalise on such an advantage it is fair to say that BWFC deserve to take the drop into Championship.
This season is probably one of the worst seasons I ever remember BWFC going through, even when Gary Megson was incharge. How come? Well it all comes back to the article I had written near to the beginning of the season: http://raj.chevli.co.uk/2011/09/bolton-wanderers-misfortune/. Unfortunately, BWFC have done little to improve on their situation and that is rather worrying now we are 19th place mid season. Looking through the rest of the games until the end of the season, I am going to try and predict the [points].
After what was a dreadful start to the season having lost 6 games out of the first 7, BWFC have finally won a game again! I previously wrote an article about Bolton Wanderers Misfortune and since then we have played against Arsenal and Chelsea and lost both matches. And to rub salt into the wounds, it was our star man from last season, Daniel Sturridge of Chelsea to score two against Bolton. Ah well, it just goes to show that Owen Coyle does have a good eye for talent.
