    I assume that you have never had the need to use a food bank ? I have and it's not something to joke about.

    Aww well done Bolton Fc, they must be delighted at the position they have put themselves in, and long may it continue eh.

    And look, they (their fans) did all the usual things to us and about us this time last year when they effectively sent us down so I really dont give a tom tit.

    Why one just for them ? Don't they have ordinary run of the mill food banks in Bolton, feeding each and every hungry person suffering under the Tory yoke ? I thought there was one on every street corner nowadays, such is the demand.

    Or could this be just another lefty propaganda stunt ? No, no, of course it couldn't, my apologies.

    Alf is right here Beds, and I also think exactly the same about this disgrace of a club.
    Obviously my view of Bolton Fc isnt the same as you lot, when it comes to a possible Lancy club rivalry etc.
    But Im talking about their appalling financial records for so long now, and surely they shouldnt have been allowed to get away with it!!.
    And let me make this clear as well, I dont give a tom tit whether they are one of our/England's oldest original clubs etc, they have been taking the pee for far too long now.

    We have food banks all over Bolton sinkov. We are experiencing an exponential increase in homelessness. No left wing propaganda here mate, just plain old reality.

    I feel sorry for working class people who through no fault of their own are dropped in the deep stuff and are left without a "safety net" from the State. Can't really expect much else from an austerity fuelled government though can we sinkov?

    In response to Alf and Acido and politics aside, how the phook are Bolton Wanderers still being allowed to exist? They are attempting to trade whilst insolvent, the Whites hotel is shut, the gates on the ground are padlocked, no-one is getting paid, suppliers are left unpaid and the EPL allow this shambles to continue. Brentford get awarded three points for not turning up, almost three hundred playing and non-playing staff have not been paid for three months and a totally unfit for purpose, twice bankrupted individual is attempting to take over the club.

    Brexit has nothing on this shambles sinkov, footballing sentiment aside, close the business down, reinstate Notts County to the Football League and if and when Bolton ever get their act together pop them back in the League where Clitheroe play. It is hard to make or understand a case for any other course of action. I was about ten at the time, but if I remember correctly Peel Park was bulldozed and the Stanley were in nowhere near the mess the Notlobs currently are.

    Thats an excellent idea Beds, kick them to the kerb or the gutter where they belong until they sort out their awful mess. And yes that would mean a reprieve for Notts County, thats a great idea!.

    Food banks do an excellent job BT, I wish they'd have been around when us Firemen were forced out on strike for 7 week by an intransigent Labour government in 1977, but they weren't, and we had to depend on generous members of the public who supported us and dropped off food parcels to help keep our families fed. So I do understand what it's like to wonder where your next meal is coming from, I've been in that situation myself thanks to a Labour government, but I just can't help thinking that even if Food Banks weren't necessary, they're such a convenient propaganda tool, such a convenient stick to beat the Tories with, that lefties would invent them anyway.

    Incidentally, Peel Park wasn't bulldozed, it's still there and recognisable as an ex football ground, I think Peel Park school uses it as a games field, although I stand to be corrected on that, but that's what I was told by an ex-pupil.

    Correct on the pitch sinkov, but it didn't take Accy Council long to bulldoze the stands once Stanley went bust.

    Bolton are in the same situation that other clubs have found themselves in in recent years. I haven't seen Leicester, Leeds or Portsmouth, to name a few, go out of business even though many local businesses who had dealt with them did go to the wall and HMRC are still waiting for outstanding payments which they will never get.
    Some miracle will happen in the palaces of the hierarchy which will give Bolton licence to carry on ---strange isn't it?
