LIVE: Bolton Wanderers latest
This live event has finished
@MarcIles hasn't scored at a World Cup yet. Lot of faith put in him with little reward so far. Risky— @19manning83 09 June 2014
@MarcIles I think your right as well I would play him— @boltonfan09 09 June 2014
@MarcIles Rooney is a must Marc, imagine the confidence Italy would get if he wasn't playing !— @BallydehobWhite 09 June 2014
@MarcIles even though he's had more game time than others on past 3 matches, Lallana, Ox and Barkley all done more. Simple.— @IanRowboti04 09 June 2014
Pele says Brazil and England have an equal chance at the World Cup.... Okey dokey...
@MarcIles No Gerard Henderson sterling Barkley Lallana and sturridge— @adammason1991 09 June 2014
@MarcIles no chance..IMO one of most over rated players around..And we have better players ATM than him who can start— @glenn_ashworth 09 June 2014
@MarcIles Keep Welbeck away from the starting XI and play either Barkley or Sterling... Throw the young guns in! What have we to lose?— @DanSumner85 09 June 2014
@MarcIles You'd be silly not to start Rooney in most games. What we can't do is champion him above others in a be-all and end-all scenario.— @Baceless_Comedy 09 June 2014
@MarcIles Hart, Jones, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines, Gerrard, Henderson, Rooney, Sterling, Welbeck, Sturridge— @dan_may30 09 June 2014
And some bad news from Championship rivals Reading - whose financial problems are laid out bare with this story...
I like that side @DanSumner86 - go for the jugular!
@MarcIles Hart; Johnson Cahill Jagielka Baines; Gerrard Wilshere; Lallana Barkley Rooney; Sturridge— @DanSumner85 09 June 2014
Would you start Rooney? A few people this morning said they would not - but personally, I'd have him as one of the first names on my team-sheet.
So, more predictions for this weekend against Italy??
More Championship transfer action, Sheffield Wednesday sign Preston youngster Ryan Croasdale and Nottingham Forest have opened talks with Excelsior striker Lars Veldwijk.
Just watched the #england game back, would like to change my selection. Wilshere for Henderson. @MarcIles— @IanRowboti04 09 June 2014
@MarcIles To Mike10 we're never going to be able to avoid selling our 'best' players. Even Man U have to do that.— @Nidgster 09 June 2014
Few scraps of transfer news around the Championship - Birmingham City have signed MK Dons midfielder Stephen Gleeson, while Nottingham Forest look all set to sign Matty Fryatt from Hull City.
@MarcIles how about Rivaldo! Oh wait a minute.— @doogiewanderer 09 June 2014

what Wanderers really need is Dawson back from West Brom permanently.rock solid defender and appears to be out in the cold where he is.plus Mason and Juke.
Also Wanderers stop selling the best players just because you get a good offer for them.Not a recent thing as it has been going on for the best part of 50 years
Lots of rumour around this morning about ex-Wanderers loanee Craig Dawson being targeted by Burnley.
Meanwhile, Glen Johnson has backed England to surprise Italy this weekend... Read the story here
The Statistics - Bolton Wanderers 2013/14 Review #BWFC http://t.co/hQI7Ajs6Hd— @BurndenAces 09 June 2014
@MarcIles Hart, Johnson, Jagielka, Cahill, Baines, Gerrard, Oxlade-Chamberlain (if fit) or Henderson, Sterling, Rooney, Lallana, Sturridge.— @Mr_T076 09 June 2014
@MarcIles Sterling, Barkley and Lallana behind Sturridge. Drop Rooney.— @lanny_ant 09 June 2014

Lots of positivity about Bolton from me for this coming season. Think Dougie has got through the murky waters and is coming out of it now. He is building/has built his own team now. They have all summer to work together to get it right. Lots of players on big wages are now gone. He has pretty much got rid of the players he didn't want - the likes of N'Gog and Eagles. I also think it's great that we have signed 5 players already, Normally we are panicking on the final day. Still need to get rid of Andrews though and bring the Juke in.
As for England, I have been really disappointed with the recent matches. I don't see where we are going to score from. Roy needs to pick players that fit his formation, which means not Rooney. He has been really really poor for me for England for ages.
I'd play Hart, Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines, Gerrard, Henderson, Lallana, Barkley, Oxlade Chamberlain, Sturridge.
Won't happen though.
@MarcIles will we ever see an #england team without Rooney in it? Should've tried it at least once in these friendlies. Wasted opportunity.— @IanRowboti04 09 June 2014
Slightly off-topic, but another interesting tale in the paper today about the wife of ex-Wanderer Fabrice Muamba and her new business venture. Read the story here
I suspect you are right @Nidgster - Italy don't tend to hold back. I still fancy England for a draw at least, though.
@MarcIles Engalnd will have to be careful. They might come in for some particularly hard challenges.— @Nidgster 09 June 2014
@MarcIles sterling on the right, rooney behind sturridge, same back four— @_knowlesy 09 June 2014
@MarcIles Mostly agree with your side. Though I suspect Welbeck will be there and not Wilshire.— @Nidgster 09 June 2014
@MarcIles going to be the most talked about subject for the next 5 days, would personally go wilshere with gerrard and welbeck on the left— @_knowlesy 09 June 2014
Pah indeed... Right back is the spot I'm most worried about.
10:20am Mon 9 Jun 14
England eleven - Hart, Johnson (pah!), Cahill, Jags, Baines, Gerrard, Wilshere, Welbeck, Rooney, Sterling, Sturridge
I'm going for (4-2-3-1): Hart; Johnson, Cahill, Jageilka, Baines; Gerrard, Henderson; Sterling, Wilshere, Rooney; Sturridge.
Who would you pick against the Italians?
Alongside the Wanderers news throughout - we're also asking who you'd like to see line-up for England against Italy next weekend?
Dougie Freedman has made five new signings this summer - but how much more business he gets done might just depend on trimming the wage bill further. One player looking certain to leave is Keith Andrews, but his talks with Huddersfield Town seem to have hit a snag.
Good morning folks - and welcome to Wanderers Live, our rolling blog that will take you through the summer and bring you all the breaking stories at the club.
