Oh dear and it’s bucket’s t full of sympathy we are all after here at TNS towers, last week my good self was laid low with a horrific stomach complaint gift wrapped from the grand-kiddies.
However like the trooper I am on the look-out for any kind of consolation I went into work and gave the rest of the crew the dreaded Delhi belly, trust me your ass is not for water coming out of.
AND Kleenex Super Soft isn’t that soft when you use it every 15 minutes.
So all alone with just flickering blank screens to keep me company the preview of the forthcoming “derby” match in Horwich has been left to me, the last man standing.
Wildheart is still recovering from motorway lag after his epic to the coast and back on Tuesday, while Alan is still busy soldering wires and keeping us on-line.
Andy has succumbed to his sick bed to weak to hit a keyboard while Moonay & Martin are propping up the bar and keeping their distance from the intestinal plagued folk.
Meanwhile Jimmy is counting all the gold sovereigns that his latest book is bringing in, The Life of Pies a delectable read to say the least.
Plus Bert is stalking the corridors outside to pick up any weaklings who are not up for the fight, that black outfit and sickle does however keep the scrotes at bay.
Anyhow Lennon seems to be a messiah over at the out of town shopping centre in so much as The Trotters (That’s exactly what I had last week) are now at the beginning of a (brief hopefully) rich vein of form.
Bolton’s last game on home turf was thumping the reds of Cardiff 3-0 while Latics last away day was the insipid one-nil defeat against The Seagulls.
With the usual vocal following at our nearest neighbours the team won’t lack for vocal support, basically the long suffering supporters of Latics will forgive the last few disappointing games if Rosler masterminds victory over their Lancashire rivals who reside on the outskirts of my homely village of Aspull.
Bolton are 23rd in the division with our good selves just about above ‘em in 19th, our away record against BWFC isn’t half bad P9 W3 D4 L2 F8 A12

Over 2000 Wiganers will make the short trip over the border and the suits at the Macron have asked ALL fans to arrive early with a period of silence planned as a mark of respect to those men and women who lost their lives in services of their country.
