When FGR beat Bolton away last weekend, it dawned on me that Bolton have slid through the leagues. During the mid 2000's, Bolton were a good Premier League Club. Managed by Sam Allardyce, they had players like Kevin Nolan, Ivan Campo, Jay Jay Okocha, Kevin Davies and Jussi Jaaskelainen. They moved from Burden Park to the Reebok. (Been to the Reebok to watch Arsenal in an FA Cup tie. Nice ground with a retail park close by).
   It's amazing how some clubs slip through the leagues. Stockport County for example, Championship Club to National League North. That is some adventure for a supporter to go through.
Their whole business model was built on a foundation of sand.

They worked on the basis that they would never get relegated from the Premier League. Once they did, and didn't immediately bounce back, it was only a matter of time before they were in danger of liquidation.
Every club everywhere is a ticking timebomb waiting to go off.

I reckon Covid-19 will shorten the fuse for quite a few. Sick
