News has just broken via the Sun’s Alan Nixon that Bolton Wanderers owe Norwich City a “six figure sum in unpaid wages” for loanees Yanic Wildschut and recent departure Remi Matthews.
BOLTON. Owe NORWICH a sizeable six figure sum in unpaid wages for loanees Wildschut and Matthews. More online shortly.— Alan Nixon (@reluctantnicko) January 7, 2019
This comes on the back of Matthews’ exit and more prominently, Christian Doidge’s return to Forest Green Rovers this morning. FGR chairman Dale Vince’s public message has seemingly encouraged others awaiting outstanding finances to come forward with their complaints as Norwich appear to have.
Inevitably, such off the field issues were were going to spill on to the football side of things and we are rapidly losing players as a result with Everton loanee Joe Williams rumoured to be soon following suit after interest emerged from Bristol City.
Whilst Wanderers are in dire straights, there is no sign of improvement as each day seems to spell further bad news and simply rubs more salt into the wounds.
Wanderers fans, still without answers are becoming increasingly frustrated with such matters and courtesy of ourselves and the other blogging sites, momentum for a protest prior, during and after the West Bromwich Albion game next Monday is building significantly and will only continue to do so as problems continue to flood in left right and centre.
Whilst Yanic’s future at the club hangs in the balance, fans expressed their sympathy towards departing goalkeeper Remi Matthews this morning as he packed up his car, preparing to leave Lancashire, vulnerable and visibly frustrated as expressed by the emoji’s which he featured in the image.
This is just another episode in a day in the life of Bolton Wanderers and its certainly not what any of us deserve, the fans, the players, the community or anyone else involved for that matter.
Again, similarly to my conclusion in yesterday’s article regarding Doidge, I can only apologise to Remi once again and Yanic Wildschut in particular at this increasingly distressing time for all involved.
An end needs to be put to all this. Fast.
Enough is enough.
