The impossible dream

No matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

The impossible dream.

Bolton Wanderers have certainly seen some impossible things in recent times. Being promoted whilst under a transfer embargo, Lord Wilbraham’s last gasp diving header to keep us in the Championship & Keith Andrews scoring four penalties. All seemed too fantastical to be true, though they happened.

Now, as the decade winds to a close, Wanderers face the ultimate mission impossible. With three successive wins under their belt, Wanderers are now on positive points, just three points behind Southend in 22nd & twelve points from safety.

With three games in hand, Wanderers have a great opportunity to claw themselves out of the bottom three over the busy Christmas period.

If history is to be correct, the club needs to hit around the fifty point mark to stand a chance of staying up.

After the monumental pile of shite that has been the last couple of years, Bolton Wanderers finally look to be steering towards the right track. A manager & coaching team who are passionate about their jobs & players giving their all for the cause.

The club have just announced that half season tickets are going on sale.

£155 for eleven games, that's pretty good value.

Keith has given an impassioned plea for all those fans who haven’t already got season tickets:

“Our football club means so much to the people of Bolton and everybody who wears the shirt and works for the club knows this. We are a special, hardworking and proud town and this is embodied in the club.

“There is no doubt that such a significant points deduction has given the club a huge mountain to climb, but us Boltonians are fighters and we never abandon hope.

“It may seem an impossible dream but with the whole town and every Wanderers fan right behind us we will battle for every point in every match.

“I cannot thank our season ticket holders enough for the commitment they have made this season and I know the lads appreciate every single one of them.

“I would urge anyone who is not yet a season ticket holder to purchase a half season ticket for the final 11 games.

“Your support means everything to us!”

Can Bolton Wanderers pull off the impossible dream? We can only hope. So get yourself to The UNIBOL to cheer on the lads as we head towards the second half of the season.
