It is all go at Bolton Wanderers this week isn't it?

We had the release of the fixture list, three confirmed first team signings, a raft of transfer rumours and a load of mysterious sackings that impact matters in League One and beyond. No wonder Marc and Henry struggled to get the podcast in under an hour this week.

Once again we rustle around the headlines in The Bolton News, sorting the salacious gossip from the good information.

We look at all the top news - and check out what is happening on Saturday as Big Sam Allardyce and Peter Reid do battle in the dugout as part of a charity game for the Bolton Wanderers Remembrance Group.

We read out your emails too - examining financial matters after the bond scheme and also the possible merits and pitfalls of signing Alfie May.

This podcast was recorded before Wanderers drew Manchester United Under-21s in the Papa Johns Trophy and Barrow in the Carabao Cup - yet somehow we have still managed to create a fun-packed show. How do we do it?



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.

If you want to get in contact with the show, please email or tweet Marc on @MarcIles and @Henry__Hewitt 

And please, please leave a review. We work hard to put these episodes out every single week, in-season and out, and the more feedback we get, the better the product. Having said all that, we are currently only accepting five-star ratings, as all the other ratings are broken.
