    As a life long Bolton fan I can only say “sorry” to Christian. It is disgusting the way you and FGR have been treated by the appalling behaviour of our chairman. We, the Wanderers fans really do feel for you, you kept your side of the bargain. We, too, were led to believe funds were in place for transfers and players wages this season but us and the club have been totally let down by this individual, he has brought us to our knees. All I can do is wish Christian all the best and hope that another club – better than ours- can come along and fulfill your dreams and that our beloved club can get its credibility back in the not too distant future.
