Bolton boss Parkinson Happy with Early Season Form

Bolton Wanderers have been a rejuvenated club in the last few months.

Even though League One offers substantially lower competition, the club were expected to go through a tough season in their efforts to get promoted back to the Championship. The cleaning up of the entire club from top to bottom seems to have paid off, as they have made their best start to a league campaign in 82 years following a 2-1 win over Fleetwood Town. The club had started the new campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Sheffield United. Since then, they have followed up with three consecutive 2-1 victories.


Bolton Wanderers have lost Filip Twardzik as the player opted to leave the club, cutting his contract with the club short.

Bolton’s new manager Phil Parkinson is eyeing new players

There was a period of time when Bolton Wanderers was not able to secure consistent results and this occurred in the final few months of Neil Lennon, back when he was in charge of the English club.

Bolton Wanderers struggled so much during this period of time that they recorded their first win in 18 matches and their first victory was secured in December of 2015. Neil Lennon was eventually sacked from coaching Bolton and the club was relegated from the English Championship League.

Phil Parkinson was the man selected as the new coach of Bolton Wanderers and this announcement was made official to the public on June 10 of 2016.

UweRosler and Peter Reid are front-runners for coaching Bolton Wanderers

After being relegated from the English League Championship, Neil Lennon was sacked from his managerial position in Bolton Wanderers and now the search is underway for the person who is most suitable of taking control of the club that finished in the last position of the 2nd tier English league.



Jimmy Phillips believes Gary Madine can still redeem himself at Bolton Wanderers. A return of just six goals in 36 games and a high-profile bust-up with former manager Neil Lennon ensured the striker’s first season at the Macron Stadium ended on a not so pleasant note.

Andy Townsend appointed as consultant by Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers have appointed Andy Townsend as a consultant to the team as they step up their search for a new manager.

The team is currently without a manager after Neil Lennon exit the club on the 15th March.

Bolton old boys deals are on the Cards

There’s been nothing of any sort so far to suggest that the new deals are on the way for the Bolton old boys who are close to seeing off their contracts.

If Jimmy Phillip’s comments are to be taken as an indication of the future possibilities, then not all of those veterans are staying on.

Actually, there is no assurance regarding Phillips himself currently as he is there only in the position of a caretaker right now, but, if he works satisfactorily enough for the board to ask him to carry on in the job, he has dropped enough signs that he would stress on forming a young squad.

Sports Shield take over is good for Bolton

A few days ago it was officially confirmed and announced that the Sports Shield consortium had completed taking over the English League Championship club.

Bolton Wanderers have recently been boosted by two back-to-back victories

Bolton Wanderers have recently been boosted by two back-to-back victories and this appears to have given manager Neil Lennon confidence that his team can progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Bolton are against Leeds United at home, where they have struggled throughout the season, but a home win can ensure that Bolton are able to make up for the league struggles with some FA Cup joy for the fans. The club remains five points adrift of safety after recently getting a massive three point against MK Dons in the league.

Neil Lennon claimed that he had never lost

Troubled manager Neil Lennon claimed that he had never lost his faith in the players after watching his team get a crucial 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.

This was only the second win of the season for Bolton Wanderers, whose last win came way back at the start of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Bolton have been lucky to see most of their rivals not claim to many points during this period. As a result, the club remains only four points away from safety. This victory comes as a major sigh of relief for Lennon, who did not appear to be cut out for the job in the Championship.
