Happy New Year from The Lion of Vienna Suite

Here's to 2019

Another year over. 2018 was quite an interesting year to be a Bolton Wanderers fan.

After months languishing in & around the bottom three, Wanderers miraculously managed to stay up on the final day of the season.

It was a day to remember for fans inside The Macron and those watching from further afield. To be five minutes away from relegation, only to then score twice to win the game and survive. Aaron Wilbraham’s name will be written into Wanderers folklore for years to come.

We also saw Bolton have the best start to a Championship season since the start of the century. The club may have not been able to continue that blistering form, but it was brilliant to see whilst it lasted.

2018 also saw the sad loss of several former Wanderers. Jlloyd Samuel, Jimmy McIlroy, Gareth Williams Jimmy Armfield & Eddie Davies will be sorely missed by many.

To end 2018 outside of the bottom three was a huge bonus, so hopefully Parky & the players can get some points in the second half of the season to comfortably stay up.

As for The Lion of Vienna Suite itself, we’ve had a pretty good year. Thank you to everyone who has read, commented and shared any of our articles this year.

Finally, i’d like to say thank you to all the people who have contributed towards the site in 2018. We’ve lost some great writers this year, but we’ve also gained some great writers as well.

Again, I'd like to say thank you to anyone who has contribited in some fashion with the site this year.

Enjoy the rest of the night.

Happy New Year!

Here’s to what will hopefully be a 2019 to remember for Bolton Wanderers.

I’d also like to say that we saddened by the news that former Liverpool & Wanderers winger Peter Thompson has passed away. The England international was a crowd favourite at Burnden Park, and helped the club achieve promotion to the First Division in 1978. The thoughts of everybody at LOV are with Peter’s family and friends at this sad time.
