Reports, reports and more reports are reporting that Carlos Sanchez (a.k.a The Rock) is very close to completing a move to the Reebok Stadium.
Coyle has kept focus on bringing the former Valenciennes midfielder on a free transfer – maybe progress with this transfer may have played a part in the decision on whether to sign Kalifa Cisse or not?
Nevertheless, Sanchez is seen to be a perfect replacement for Reo-Coker and will undoubtedly strengthen our midfield further.
The Rock is set to sign a 3 year deal, however before anything is set in stone, all is currently balancing on a work permit approval.
Everyone remembers those famous words from that advert back in the 80′s when those two kids were knocking back a glass of milk just because Ian Rush ‘drank it’.
One of the kids hoped he’d be good enough to play for Accrington Stanley when he was older.
Well, one of our own is good enough for Stanley – Tom Eckersley has completed a move to the Crown Ground after being unsuccessful at breaking into Owen Coyle’s side.
Eckersley has signed a 1 year deal with Stanley, with the former White being quoted to be over the moon to be signing for his new club.
We wish Tom all the best, and we hope he has manages to kickstart his career off properly – starting at Accrington Stanley.
Following the announcement that the new adidas 2012/13 away kit will be revealed and available to buy on Sunday 12 August at the annual Family Fun Day, the Club are inviting supporters to sit alongside Owen Coyle and his squad in the Club’s biggest ever team photo.
Supporters who have purchased either the new adidas home or away shirts are being given the opportunity to be part of Bolton Wanderers’ history by taking part in the Club’s biggest ever team photo.
The unique picture is being captured in North Stand Lower on Sunday 12 August and the Club want as many supporters as possible to get involved in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Entry will be via NX8 which will open at 1.30pm and close at 2.05pm. Wheelchair users will also be able to access North Stand Lower via NX8.
The players and management team will take their place in the stand when all supporters are seated and the photographer will aim to capture the photo at 2.15pm.
We haven’t been short on new kits being revealed of late, with new training kit and home strip being launched just over 8 weeks ago.
Bolton Wanderers have now announced that they will be revealing the new adidas away kit at the Annual Family Fun Day, which is taking place on Sunday 12th August.
The Family Fun Day will run from 10.30am to 3pm with Bolton Central being open from 10am allowing fans to purchase the new away kit.
Members of the first team will also be present for a signing session between 12pm and 1.30pm; with plenty of entertainment taking place in the Premier Suite and the lower concourse car park.
The Bolton News believes Khalifa Cisse has been told by Bolton boss Owen Coyle that his footballing future isn’t to be with Bolton.
Cisse, who isn’t short of admirers was hoping to secure a deal with the Whites in order to boost our midfield. It seems that Cisse may have done his best to try and sway the manager’s decision, but it simply wasn’t enough.
With this in mind, Coyley is still looking to bring in someone to give us some strength up front, and possibly may bring in another few faces to keep the pressure on players who are competing for a starting place.
Our favourite Fans Liaison Officer is going to be spending some time in prison. Not something you hear everyday, but in reality it’s all for a good cause.
When we say a good cause, we don’t mean this in a bad way, nevertheless the former White’s player will be sharing his cell with Gary Sheader of Futurestate Solutions Ltd to raise money for the Be Strong Project which was founded by Tony and Darren Armstrong, which helps to rehabilitate drug users, alcoholics and offenders back into the community.
All monies raised will go towards the Be Strong Workshop, which requires funds for tools, benches, testing equipment, training and the first few months rent on their location.
Both Tony and Gary will be warming up their cell this coming Saturday from 7pm – 9pm.
