IT might be the international break this weekend... But we're going to mix the pot by asking a big question.

Wanderers racked up their seventh win in succession at Stockport - and the last team to manage that got promotion from League One, back in 2016/17.

But which squad - Ian Evatt's entertainers or Phil Parkinson's clean sheet specialists - was the better one?

Marc and Henry break each squad down into departments to start the debate. And we want to hear your thoughts on thebuffmail@gmail,com

Of course, we have all the analysis of a 1-0 win against Blackpool, that Trophy triumph at Edgeley Park, and the very latest headlines from The Bolton News.

Who Are You is back with the letter 'E' - and ,you can find out which Wanderer once teamed up with Belinda Carlisle to fight a well known fast food restaurant.
