WELCOME to another episode of The Buff Podcast, where the absence of news at Bolton Wanderers just gives us something else to talk about!

Marc Iles and Henry Hewitt are back again for a deep dive into the week’s headlines in The Bolton News and an extensive chat about everything happening around the club (which isn’t a lot, as it turns out) as the summer transfer window opens and clubs can finally do some deals.

How many signings do Bolton Wanderers need to make this summer?

Has Ian Evatt had to change direction on transfers after extra board backing?

Does the Bolton boss stick or twist on his existing squad?

Those questions, and many more are debated, along with a look ahead at the release of the new kits, whether there is anything to worry about with Dion Charles’s knee injury, how Josh Sheehan fits in with Wales’s future and if Bolton really need the Bristol Street Motors Trophy next season.

We read out your emails – which are supplying some cracking content at the moment, by the way – and complete our review of the Wanderers squad with a close look at the strikers.

Gavin McCann/Gavin McCan’t is back again too, and we have another cryptic clue which could earn one lucky listener one of our bespoke Buff mugs.
