Keep calm and carry on, Wanderers might have dropped to sixth and be heading to the league leaders Sheffield Wednesday but it’s not all doom and gloom!

Join Marc Iles and Henry Hewitt as we pick the bones of a defeat to Ipswich Town and wonder what went wrong, and what it might mean to the run-in, or even Wembley.

We hear from Ian Evatt, Gethin Jones and Conor Bradley in what has been a tough week for the Whites, which ends with a trip to Hillsborough to face an outstanding Owls side that has not been beaten in 22 games.

But it isn’t all bad. We examine the Bolton squad’s musical tastes – warning: Contains Taylor Swift – and revive our trademark Wanderers word game, Danny Shittu.

We read out your emails via the Fil Morais postbag and give our predictions on what might happen on Friday night.



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.
