FESTIVE greetings, and welcome back to another episode stuffed with headlines, like a turkey at Christmas dinner.

Marc Iles and Henry Hewitt rake through all the week's stories at Bolton Wanderers, including a trial for Eidur Gudjohnsen's nephew, Gethin Jones and Jack Iredale's potential Australia call-up and the new episode of Born to be a Wanderer.

We review the bad and the worse in Bolton's 2-0 defeat at Portsmouth - and what it might mean to the promotion chase in League One.

And we look ahead to this weekend's home game with Bristol Rovers, and which players could come in to make a difference on home turf.

We read your emails to discuss odd food at football and our ever-popular Who Are You feature looks back at a former Wanderers star who was instrumental in the creation of Total Football in the Netherlands.
