FOOTBALL is back, and it isn’t going anywhere again until March… At least, we hope not!

With the international break over and done with, Marc and Henry are back to preview big games against Exeter City and Oxford United.

All the week’s headlines in The Bolton News are reviewed – from a big interview with the new first team coach, Matt Craddock, to the potential return of a former Bolton owner whose name we dare not mention.

We read out your emails and explain a press conference joke on Neil Lennon which did not land.

Who Are You is back with the letter F. And which former Wanderers player was once put out of commission by a coffee table?
