HAPPY New Year to all the listeners of The Buff - and welcome back to another episode packed full of Bolton Wanderers news and gossip.

Marc Iles and Henry Hewitt unite for the first time in 2023 to discuss the stunning 3-0 win against Barnsley and what it does for Bolton's promotion push.

The January window is open - and while we recorded the pod just before news of Randell Williams' signing (d'oh!) we are bringing you bang up to date on another Wanderers target, Danny Nlundulu.

We sift through all the other transfer tittle-tattle and discuss the Dapo Afolayan suspension at Lincoln City.

The Postman has delivered once again, with emails on the Bolton back three, whether it was right to 'ole' at Oakwell, and whether the Reebok Rebels should come back on matchdays. Please don't cancel us.

The lads will also be giving their predictions for the big game against Plymouth Argyle and the Portsmouth Papa Johns Trophy quarter-final.

Press play, sit back and imagine a room filled with James Traffords.

This season we’ll be running a special Fantasy Football League for listeners of The Buff – and will be dishing out monthly prizes, plus recruiting some special guests to play against from the world of Wanderers.
