Bolton Wanderers fans woke up to rumours around the rumoured exit of Phil Gartside alongside fresh stories about the level of the club's debt this morning.

With all kinds of strange and bizarre rumours flying around, we'll do our best to keep you updated on what is happening at the club.

First, rumours have been doing the rounds suggesting that the chairman has walked away from the club, with the below image a cryptic suggestion that all is not well. Friend of the site Marc Iles' comments suggest something is hapenning, but he won't be commenting further for now.

We then had news that Bolton have been named as the side at the top of the Championship's table, above even QPR, which may not be a surprise to many.

It's safe to say that none of these rumours - did I mention these were all rumours yet? - point to good news stories, with Wanderers fans speculating to a possible takeover and that Neil Lennon could even leave the club due to the mess it is in.

Stay tuned as further news comes to us through the day, and we'll do our best to pick the nonsense from the rubbish from the almost maybe truth.

No news is good news, apparently. Or maybe not. But someone has their own idea of what we need...


Live blog over. Rumours quashed. Marc Iles has just revealed any talk of Gartside is nonsense, from the horse's mouth.
