Is there one in the UK?
Do they have an online outlet?
Do they do slippers for pets?
Are there special opening hours for deviants?

Sorry I don't know much about them myself.

I have however done a google search and found the following link for Carpet Slippers Emporium - seems they do a lot of 'mule' type slippers.

Even UGG ones, whose boots were all the rage with the ladies a few years back.

Hope you find this of some interest -

You're off on one again pal. I just wanted to know if there are negotiations to sell the club in progress or not - so there is some context for potential signings.

And now that Boggers has subbed the Saudis for a Texan I think know the answer.

Are you for real???

You expect to find answers like that out, on a social media footy forum which specialises in talking bollocks and winding people up for most of the time!

Yes given that Anderson's press releases have frequently referred to potential investor negotiations in the past and they are invariably reposted on the aforementioned footy forum. To my knowledge, this is the only time he hasn't made a song and dance about what a great job he's doing on the negotiation front. Hence the (entirely valid) question pal.

I suspect that if negotiations are really ongoing then Ken and whomever he may be talking to will not be making any kind of release about them until there's something substantive to say, in part because talking too soon previously may well have led to talks breaking down. As my old English teacher once told me 'a closed mouth gathers no foot'. Besides, most business discussions are generally held in camera and are seen as confidential between the parties involved. I doubt there'd be any reason to behave differently here.

Why would we not post up a statement from Mr Anderson if there had been one if they are all "invariably reposted" on here?

Why didn't you bother to look on the official clubs website, twitter or Facebook accounts if you thought we'd missed one?

Also isn't it a bit rich from you who can't be arsed to tell the rest of us about live links to the games that you are watching whilst the rest of us know bugger all about them - and someone who quite frequently reads Iles internet articles and comments about them on the forum yet can't be arsed to post them up for the rest of us to read - until usually Karly, myself or recently LT does so for the benefit of all the rest of us - to make out we might not be up to date on bringing YOU personally the news on this?


As for being your pal, the people I consider pals are those who give of there time and own free will to help me and others out when they can.

Clearly you don't fit into that category and I doubt you ever will.

You're a thirty odd year old family man with a decent job who has already dealings with solicitors over remarks you've made in respect of someone else, which in effect made you leave your beloved twitter and Lion of Vienna sites for good and yet you still go out of your way to log into sites like here and Wways to post childish insults.

Nowt wrong with playing games sluffy. Most 80s and 90s kids who are now adults play them.  We grew up with them and now they cater more for adults than kids. 

I have a football manager app on my phone for when I'm bored.

There's a difference with playing it when you have some free time and then shunning spending time with his kids to play on it due to his addiction. Very Happy

As much as I don't get on with Mr Manning, saying he ignores his kids to play computer games is a bit too far KP. I doubt that's very much the case.

Sluffy is a top poster but occasionally lets himself down by having an unnecessary strop such as that at 18.32 yesterday.It is posts like that one which enabled him to claim the most annoying poster of the year award

Getting back to Ken, I would expect some sort of statement from Ken soon given that we have just released the central midfield.Season ticket holders probably want some reassurance that we'll be getting a new midfield.

You really are a nob, what sort of an accusation is that to make about someone you dont even know. An inane smiley face doesn’t excuse that.

Thank you for the somewhat backhanded compliment Growler but I still stand by what I said on my post you refer to.

Several of us run Nuts simply for a bit of amusement and a shared interest in following the Wanderers.

Non of us are compelled to give of our time (or money) to keep Nuts going and we ask nothing of those who view or post on here.

We have prided ourselves on having a very free and easy style and allow most things on here - even people abusing us.

At the end of the day it is all meaningless, just words on the internet written by anonymous strangers to each other.  Nuts like football is all about the 'here and now', the anticipation building towards or next match, the sharing of the game with each other at match time on Chatbox, and the joy of the win (or the dissection of the defeat) afterwards.

We all want to hear and see breaking news at the club and we all have opinions of what is right and wrong with things - clearly not all of us seeing things the same way all the time!

So to have someone who clearly doesn't give a fuck about anyone else on here, who doesn't share match streams even though he knows the rest of us only have Radio Nuts to follow the game on, and often reads articles from the Bolton News to comment about on here yet can't be arsed to link to it (and thus having some other mug like me having to go to the trouble of finding it so as to post it up so the rest of us can see it also) doesn't sit well with me.  The 'all in this togetherness' that being a fan of a club is all about to most of us - the comradery of sharing the highs and the lows our club goes through - is clearly absent from him.  He gives nothing to the rest of us.

However he is quite free to act in a way that he chooses.

And of course so am I.

As far as I'm concerned I gave a perfectly reasonable reply to him in what I said.

My question as to 'Why would we NOT have posted up an Anderson statement if there had been one?' and the 'Why would you not check on the clubs various official social media sites if you did think we had missed one?' were totally fair and reasonable comment I think most would agree with.

As for his obviously fake attempt to be 'pals' with me, I simply set him straight on how I view friendship.

If people (the usual suspects) want to make a big deal about that, then that's up to them.

I'm certainly not the ones pathetic enough to specially log into the forum to post against me in a meaningless popularity contest, nor am I the one who has been childish and stupid enough to have gone far to far on social media to have had solicitors letters sent to me.

It's only the internet remember, it isn't real life, and I'm not the selfish sod who doesn't share with his peers nor the manchild in his thirties who is still to mentally grow up.

There is a perception among many people that during the summer months football clubs shut up shop and everybody goes on holiday.

In all honesty, nothing could be further from the truth, especially here at Bolton Wanderers and Bolton Whites Hotel.

The ground works at our training ground in Lostock and at the stadium have been completed and I must thank the ground staff and all involved for their hard work. It’s important that the players in all our age groups have the best facilities possible at their disposal which will allow them to train and prepare for games.  We will always continue to invest in our facilities.

Behind the scenes, our scouting team have been working non-stop in their pursuit to identify possible recruits who will be the right fit for the club.

It’s not a simple case of identifying a player, ringing him and his agent and then signing the deal. We do a lot of due diligence on how he can improve the squad, what his character and personality is like and then work out a deal that will be in the best interests for the club.  

I’m of the view that we do all our business behind closed doors and then talk about it once it has been fully completed. While I understand that speculation creates a lot of excitement, especially during the summer, I don’t think that rumours are particularly helpful for all concerned.

Both the manager and I agree that the Sky Bet Championship this coming campaign will quite possibly be the toughest one on record. Considering the calibre of the teams that have come down from the Premier League and those who have been promoted from League One, the quality will be certainly dialled up by a few notches.  We only need to look at Wolves, Derby and Middlesbrough, to name but three, to see how much money was spent by the bigger clubs last campaign. I fully expect this pattern to continue into next season.

As you will have already read, we had to make some very tough decisions by not offering new deals to some of the players. These weren’t done lightly and we’ve got to ensure that the club progresses each year. As I have mentioned, this coming season will be even tougher than last year so we will be ensuring that our squad is strengthened accordingly. It is our overall plan to reduce the average age of our squad going forward but I want to make it clear that we will also consider recruiting experienced players if they still have the levels of fitness required.

I’d like to wish all those who have left us the very best for the future and to thank them for their contributions to the club.

We were really pleased that Ben Alnwick signed a new deal to keep him at the club for the next two years. I believe that Ben was one of the best goalkeepers in the division last season and he was our stand out performer. That we have secured his services for another two seasons, despite strong interest from other clubs, shows how much we have come on as a club over the past couple of years.

It is no secret that we are being approached all the time by parties looking to invest in the club and I have always made it clear that if anything does happen in this regard then it will only be done if it’s in the best long-term interests for Bolton Wanderers. We have held and are continuing to have talks with interested parties. Our supporters will be among the first to know should anything happen.

I am fortunate to be the custodian of this proud and historic football club and until such time that changes I will continue to work diligently to ensure that we continue to make progress on and off the pitch, but I will continue to be prudent and run the club on a commercial and financially sustainable basis, as we do not wish to encounter the same mistakes of the past and incur the same type of problems that Aston Villa now appear to find themselves in.

Some of our pre-season fixtures have been confirmed so please keep an eye out on the club’s website and social media as we will add to these as and when new fixtures are confirmed. CLICK HERE to view the latest, confirmed pre-season fixtures.

I’m a firm believer that clubs don’t always need to go overseas to get the right preparation. Training camps abroad can provide distractions and don’t always offer the ideal conditions for what clubs can expect over the course of the season. There is also a growing trend among a number of clubs to remain in the British Isles during the summer, although I fully understand the commercial logic of why Premier League clubs go overseas to increase their followings.

With that in mind, we’ll be travelling up to Scotland later in the summer for several competitive matches. Details of the fixtures have yet to be finalised and we shall publish them on our digital channels.

The early bird season ticket deadline is fast approaching and sales are going really well, so I’d like to thank all those of you who have renewed and those of you who have bought them. The cash flow benefits to the club at this time of the year are enormous.

The deadline to buy them at the best possible price is Saturday 16 June. Please CLICK HERE for more information.

The brand new home kit will be released shortly, so please keep an eye on the website for more details of how to buy them. I must say that the new home and away shirts look fantastic and I cannot wait to see the lads wear them in August!

Of course, we’ve got three major events taking place at Macron Stadium before a football is kicked and that is why this year we have decided not to have a home friendly fixture.

Concerts return to Bolton in the guise of Little Mix and The Killers, while we are absolutely privileged to be staging both Rugby League Challenge Cup semi-finals on Sunday 5 August in a double header – the first time that this has happened.

Events of this magnitude are putting us back on the map as a venue and I am looking forward to attending them all. Hopefully, I will see many of you at them too.

Ken
