    I concur. Let’s just have those accountants.

  2. Of course the thing absent from Garside’s calculations would be the end of the England National team if the Old (in)Firm were to join the English Premier League. Many fans up here would be happy to see the back of the Old Firm (and their baggage). I think if it was between getting rid of the old firm or the amalamation of the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish national teams, I know what I want.

    Heavens above – are you really suggesting that Phil Gartside might be doing this for reasons other than for the benefit of English football?

    I am a Bolton fan – by birthright not choice of course.

    Phil Gartside is a strange character – one of those people who obviously had good ideas in his youth or he wouldnt be where he is today, but has in recent years had nothing but crap ideas.

    Falling out with Big Sam being one of his more ‘alternative’ notions – the crazy joker!!

    Despite his overseeing an immense improvemenmt in our fortunes a few years ago, he is now,like the deluded and derranged Muppet Megson, (Gartsides appointment by the way) well past his shelf life at our beloved club.

    Stand down both of you and the pathetic board!

    Give this beautiful club a chance!
