I was going to start this blog on the past of Bolton Wanderers, but decided against it.
The reason why? Bolton fans do not go on about the past like other teams, we talk about the future and what a young inspirational Scottish manager has brought to the club Mr Owen Coyle.
The excitement, the buzz the fighting spirit Coyle has bestowed at the Reebok is unexplainable, but lets try.
To take a striker like Elmander not doing much at the Reebok to someone who has renewed venom beggers belief, Coyles management skills are outstanding, his presence is warm and optimistic.
He is a leader who turns players into leaders look at Kevin Davies the Bolton captain getting his first call up to the England squad, look at the bench week in week out we have international footballers who are subs.
This is how far Coyle has brought the Wanderers this season 6th in the Premiership only losing 3 games thats what our club needs stability, fighting spirit and determination.
Another great thing about Owen Coyle and his beleif that a football club is part of the community is the way Bolton Wanderers players have been over the last twelve months more involved in whats going on in Bolton.
Hardly a day goes by in The Bolton News were one or more of our players are attending events and lending a hand in and around Bolton.
Not just our English plays but the whole team.
The turning on of the Bolton lights by Davies and Coyle and other squad members being there just to say hi to the people in the freezing weather shows that fortunately our team players are not pre-maddonas but genuine guys who do care and like to give back.
Is the future bright for Bolton Wanderers?
Its easy to run away with thoughts of Europe when we have players going on international duty (Jan) and headliners trying to unrest players with thoughts of lucrative moves to other clubs in the January window.
One thing I will say is that in Owen Coyle we have a manager who gives 110% no matter who we are playing, and if he can continue to rub that off onto our beloved Bolton Wanderers players then yes why can't we be pushing for Europe this season
So I call on the fans, if Coyle and the Bolton players are in the community backing us, get to the Reebok and back them this Suday as we take on Big Sams Blackburn tickets are £15 Adults £5 concessions.
And finally like the weather at the moment "The futures bright if your a White"
