WELCOME back to The Buff, where ridicule is nothing to be scared of...

Dandy highwaymen Marc Iles and Henry Hewitt take you back to 1981 when Wanderers last beat Derby County for three points and Adam and the Ants ruled the airwaves. It was a simpler time.

It has been a big week for the Whites. Eoin Toal's header salvaged a draw at Exeter City and the mood was lifted by a brilliant 5-0 win against Oxford United, driven by the Welsh Wizard Josh Sheehan in midfield.

We pick apart both games, look ahead to Pride Park and review all the headlines from The Bolton News.

We bring reader emails on youth talent, and why Wigan Athletic seem to pick up more players, and Who Are You is back with the letter R. Do you want to know who had to mark Harry Kane on his debut for Bolton? Or maybe the player who lasted just four months before getting homesick? All will be revealed.
