Replicating Sir Alex, Bolton Style – Episode Seven | @KibworthBull


After the excitement of winning a manager of the month award, we’ve hit a little bit of patchy form where winning games is proving elusive, to be fair we are not losing. But drawing games does not get you promoted.

QPR are top of the table and are no match for our stuttering heroes.

The lead is twice taken and twice given away. The board are not happy that we are languishing in 19th place.

Roger Hitoto is back from injury and he helps us pick up a much needed win. One day, we might be in a position where a win doesn’t have the phrase much needed in front of it. On that same day I might actually be good at this game.

Consistency. The curse of any struggling club. The same opponents that we made to look meek less than 4 days earlier, knock us out of the cup. We didn’t deserve the penalties.

Back to back league wins. Are we onto something? I’m playing 3 AMCs at the moment as they are our most likely scorers.

Nicholas Anelka. Lethal in Premier League. Inept in Division One. Just his 2nd of the season as we lose to Palace.

I soooo wished he would have been the one. Zeddy is gone. No work permit and released on a free. No doubt he’ll go to another English club and score 30 a season.

Darren Sheridan has also been told not to come in tomorrow. He told me that his brother John would make a better manager and we agreed on this.

FISH! Today’s fish is scoring a goal. An obscure Red Dwarf quote for you.

Two portions of Fish seal the points against them Baggies. That stopped them Boinging. Cam Burke also netted his first after injury.

There was very nearly a “throwing the laptop out of the window” moment. 4-0 and nearly drew. Isiah Rankin with a lovely treble.

6 months ago we would have lost this one. 3 months ago we would have drawn. But this is “new” Bolton. 5 straight league wins, thanks to Rog. We are officially a top 10 side.

I mention how many wins… so of course it ends. We did more than enough but had to settle for a point.

Wolves are a good side and when Tore Andre Flo put them 1 up I was worried but we rode the storm and Rankin did what he does and it’s a big win

Fish out of water… A rare bad day at the office for our South African as Wimbledon enjoy themselves. The first time in a while where we have been awful.

FA Cup. Tripe. Utter Tripe. Welcome to 2000

Woeful. Utterly woeful. Fortunately I am talking about 24th placed Swansea City, without Roger Freestone they would have conceded about 20. We look comfortable from the moment we scored

The Referee is a Mackem.. Two goals disallowed, and he originally didn’t give the penalty. A point that feels like 2 dropped.

A result that probably shows that the play-offs are one step beyond us this season.

With 16 games to go we sit 11th, 9 points behind the pack. Not impossible but certainly a tough ask. The terrible start to the season is proving our downfall.

I still have a job. Crazy times!.

Until we meet again.
