Today’s lack of transfer business is very disappointing and wasn’t for the lack of trying but as I have always maintained we shall never enter into a bidding war for a player whose price escalates beyond our own valuation.
Unfortunately, this has meant that we missed out on our striker targets ahead of Thursday’s deadline insofar as two have signed elsewhere and one has not moved. Obviously, this is very disappointing but, under my watch, this club shall never repeat the mistakes of the past and we will continue to operate on a commercial and financially prudent basis.
That said we must not forget that we have already brought in ten new senior players this summer and we are still hoping to bring some loan players in before the end of the month. So far we have only signed one loan player.

What with the World Cup and the transfer deadline being brought forward three weeks earlier than usual it has made completing transfers far more difficult and has highlighted just how crazy the market has become.
In some instances the transfer fees and salaries that have been quoted and paid have been inflated even for players lower down the leagues, which as I have already said has resulted in us missing out on several players this window because other clubs  have been prepared  to pay inflated  transfer fees and salaries.

Clubs were hanging on to players they wanted to move on to the very last minute in the hope of achieving an inflated price and in some cases that is what has happened and those who have not been sold will probably now go out on loan.

With the ‘loan window’ still open until the end of the month, what you will see happening is clubs signing players on loan and with an option to buy in January, when the transfer window opens again.

As you will be aware it’s been a very busy summer at the stadium with two successful concerts and the Rugby League Challenge Cup semi-finals, and football-wise we have brought in an additional ten new senior players to strengthen the squad with a wealth of quality and experience.

Saturday’s opening day victory against West Bromwich Albion will live long in the memories for all those who visited. Not only was our victory deserved but we more than matched our opponents who, in all but name, are a Premier League team. That performance was a good barometer of how far we have come as a group and is testament to all the hard work the staff and players have put in over the summer.
Of course, as they say one swallow doesn’t make a summer, and I can guarantee you all that they won’t get complacent with that result.
On Saturday we face a Bristol City side who will fancy themselves to finish in a high position this campaign and we must be on guard for that threat.

This will be the first of three home games in August, which include the back-to-back matches against Birmingham City and Sheffield United, and with your help and support we will be aiming to get off to a flying start ahead of the international break next month.

Thank you to everyone who has bought season tickets this summer and taken advantage of the benefits of committing your support in advance. It really is greatly appreciated by everyone at the club. For those who haven’t yet purchased them, there is still time so please act now. Please click here for more details. The more season tickets we sell, along with match day tickets, hospitality and merchandise sales the more income we have to take this club to the next level.

Like I have said in the past, a full and passionate University of Bolton Stadium not only makes it an intimidating arena for our opponents, but it also boosts and inspires our players. If we get off to that flying start and maintain the momentum then who knows what will happen come May.
So, please bring along your friends, families and colleagues and let’s start as we mean to go on and make the University of Bolton Stadium an intimidating fortress this season.
The home and away shirts are proving to be very popular and are selling very well. Please visit Bolton Central or order online at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to buy them and wear your colours with pride. It’s always good to see that wall of white at the stadium and it really does help with the overall atmosphere.

Earlier in the week, our Academy received some good and welcome news in that it has had its licence renewed to continue to operate at Category 2 status for a period of two years.
Over recent years the Academy has made great strides and is very much the future of the club. The success of the under 18s and under 23s last season was indicative of this and we are all looking forward to seeing the progress of our youngsters.
I'm very much looking forward to the Bristol City game on Saturday and truly believe we have strengthened the squad.
I am very optimistic for the season ahead.
Kind regards,

Ken

Pre match interview with Anderson by Iles before the Bristol City home game today -

OK. Some bits from Ken Anderson's interview with me and Jack Dearden coming up....

KA on loan players.
"We are already talking to two other strikers, a goalkeeper and a left-back. And we are hopeful we will get them done before the end of the month."

KA on squad.
"I think it is stronger. Left-back is the main position, even though we have got players who can cover.
"The Bolton News said this morning that we'd made mistakes by rushing in during previous years. I don't want to repeat those. I'd rather take some time and get the right players in."

KA on Eddie Davies.
"I am very grateful to him for the support and mentoring he has given me when called upon.
"He spent £200m. Was he ill-advised on where that money went, probably yes. Is he the first to admit it? Absolutely."

KA on improving this season.
"You don't want to go over a squad of 23/24 but last season we had to. If you look at the 10 players we've brought in, my own opinion is that we have a better balance."

KA on taking club to 'next level'.
"It's the $64m question. This league is difficult. It's unpredictable. No-one could have predicted what Millwall or Sheffield United did last season.
"If you can get off to a decent start in the season then everyone has a good chance."

KA on the club's financial situation.
"The position we're in is the best position since I came in.
"When I arrived we were losing £18m a year, we had debts here, there and everywhere. We've gradually managed that, and have some way to go.
"We've probably got the least debt in the Championship at the moment.
"I believe we are going to show a small profit this year and as far as I know, looking at other clubs, we'll be the only ones."

Loads and loads more from Ken Anderson to come in The Bolton News, web and print, over the next few days.

(Taken from Iles match blog on Bolton News site)

It was another strong performance on our travels at the weekend with a wonderful victory against Reading at the Madejski Stadium. For me, what impressed me the most was the character and togetherness of everybody out on that field who wore a Wanderers shirt.

There is a true camaraderie within the team and this was evident at full time on Saturday when the players who weren’t involved in the victory came onto the field to celebrate with their team mates.

While it still very much early into our campaign, we are now unbeaten in three league games and have started to build up some momentum.

It is crucial that we continue in this vein and your support is a key aspect to this. The travelling fans at the Madejski Stadium were loud and supportive throughout the 90 minutes and were incredibly inspirational for the team and played a major part in getting the result.

But here at the University of Bolton Stadium, especially with two home games this week, you all have an even stronger role to play.

We need as many Bolton Wanderers fans as possible through the turnstiles to help create that loud and intimidating atmosphere we all know you can make. Not only are you our twelfth man but the atmosphere does make it difficult for our opponents too.

If you haven’t already renewed or bought your season ticket, you can still do so and continue to make savings compared to buying tickets on a match by match basis. Please click here for more information.

If you wish to buy match tickets, then why not consider bringing your friends, family or colleagues with you. I’m sure we all know at least one Wanderers supporter who hasn’t been to the stadium for a couple of seasons or so. Let them know what they are missing out on and bring them back home!

Wednesday’s game against Birmingham City is the first of a double header here at the University of Bolton Stadium with Sheffield United travelling across the Pennines on Saturday.

With two more positive results this week, we can transform what is already a great start to the season into an even better one before we travel to our neighbours Preston North End just prior to the international break.

There are still a couple of weeks to go until the loan window closes and we are working tirelessly to strengthen our squad. We recently had an offer of £900,000 turned down for a striker we wanted on loan which would have been made permanent in January. We have now moved on and are currently talking to two Championship players with a view to a loan move. As always, we will keep you updated on transfer business.

On Wednesday, our brand new third choice kit will go on sale at Bolton Central. The design really complements the fantastic new home and away shirts that are already on sale. Both of these kits have proved to be very popular and I’ve no doubt that this one will be too. Please continue to wear your colours and support the club by purchasing our range of replica kit. Click here to order your shirts today.

I would like to take this opportunity to praise the work of the Bolton Wanderers International Football Programme, which has had an amazing summer travelling the world to deliver professional football coaching programmes as well as hosting teams from all over the globe in the hotel. Huge credit must go to Suzanne Speak, Margaret Graham, Danny Clark, James Ward and all involved at the Bolton Wanderers International Football Programme for their work in spreading the good name of the club.

I look forward to seeing you all at the University of Bolton Stadium for these next two home games.

Be loud, be proud and get behind the boys for these two crucial home games.

Kind regards,

Ken

Wow! £900k! I'm guessing that was for Aneke which would be about right for a striker his age?
Talking to two Championship players but doesn't clarify if they're strikers or not. 
Surprised they're not looking abroad if Anderson is genuinely considering spending that kind of money. 
Moreover, that kind of figure would have been very close to securing Wyke if they'd gone in with it earlier in the negotiations.

And perhaps the injury was a turnoff as we need someone ready to participate immediately. Be interesting to see who he's talking to now - says Championship but there are still some decent young strikers around in the lower leagues. Someone mentioned Jayden Stockley and I think he'd be worth a punt if we could prise him out of Exeter's grasping paws. Definitely need someone though as we'd be stuffed if Magennis is injured and I can't see Donaldson or Hall doing that job.

I could tell you that but I won't as it's not true, but I've seen bits and bobs and he looks the part and has a great scoring record.

Irrelevant really as we won't be getting him.

Anyhoo I've dug out this from t'internet so you can see what we could have won - it's from a couple of years ago but there's plenty more. 
He's 24, big, strong, great movement, two footed and about to come into his prime and £900k would possibly do it....

To sit at the summit, alongside Leeds and Middlesbrough, four games into the campaign and having played the quality of opposition we have is a fitting testament to the hard work the manager, his staff and players have put in over the summer months.

Ten points from 12 is a phenomenal effort by the group and firmly emphasises not only the quality and strength in depth we have at our disposal but also the never-say-die attitude and camaraderie which reverberates in the changing room.

On Wednesday evening against Birmingham City this was illustrated in abundance. Ben Alnwick was unbeatable and made several world class saves, while the back line defended stoically.

The midfield not only did a terrific job in screening the defence, but also passed the ball around with flair and kept Birmingham on the back foot for large swathes of the match.

Whilst our forwards, led superbly by Josh Magennis, who I am sure will claim the goal, never gave the Blues’ defence a minute’s peace.

All in all, a splendid performance played on our home soil and one which we will be looking to repeat on Saturday against the Blades.

I’ve seen some various comments recently from opposing managers and TV pundits who have commented on our style and luck. But for me, it’s our quality, team spirit and our outstanding levels of fitness and energy that are helping us get the results.

Credit must go to the backs-to the-wall-approach and never-say-die attitude by our players and management staff in getting the job done and getting us over the line. Last season, we lost games where we should have won.

Yes, it is great to have the rub of the green but I’m a firm believer that you make your own luck – and long may it continue!

As I have said on many occasions - even though we have a 100% record on our travels thus far - our home form will ultimately be the key indicator of our success in 2018/19.

With the momentum we now find ourselves having, it is imperative that the Bolton Family turns out in force to get behind the team and help to turn the University of Bolton Stadium into an intimidating fortress.

So, if you haven’t already got your tickets for the game, please click here to buy them now. Let your friends, family and colleagues know and let’s aim to pack the stadium.

Season tickets are also available and still represent the most cost effective way of watching Wanderers at the University of Bolton Stadium this season. Please click here for more details.

We also have a wide range of hospitality and sponsorship packages available on a match by match and seasonal basis and your support in this regard will be really beneficial to the club as we aim to strengthen the squad.

Please call our sales team on 01204 673761 to request a brochure and to discuss the packages available or visit our website here for more information.

We are absolutely delighted to have brought in Joe Williams who joins us from Everton on a season-long loan. Joe is a highly-rated midfielder who spent last season on loan at Barnsley and we are looking forward to working with him this season.

We are also hopeful of recruiting a striker, who will provide some additional firepower to the squad, before the window closes.

Overall, I have been very pleased with the recruitment we have done this window and I’m sure you will all agree that the quality within the camp is far greater than it has been for some time with the manager having plenty of options and cover.

The flexibility the manager has at his disposal has been evidenced in recent games thanks to the use of our substitutes who are not only a fresh pair of legs but have also come onto the field and made an impact which clearly shows the strength in depth we have, particularly when games come thick and fast.

The third kit, which went on sale earlier in the week, has proved to be very popular indeed. It was great to see and read all the fantastic feedback. Please visit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to buy our replica kits and other merchandise.

The first team squad will be having a signing session in Bolton Central on Tuesday afternoon, so it will be a great opportunity for you all to meet them and for your children to have their photographs taken with the lads. More details will be announced on the usual club channels.

Next Saturday we will make the short journey to our Lancashire neighbours Preston North End in our final game before the international break.

Tickets are selling very well and it looks like we will be taking a very large contingent of fans to Deepdale to get behind the lads. There are still some tickets available so make sure you get them from Bolton Central to give the lads an extra boost.

Our next home game after this coming weekend's fixture against Sheffield United will be against QPR on Saturday 15 September and I hope to see a large crowd back at the University of Bolton Stadium for our return. Please visit click here to buy your tickets for this game.

Kind regards,

Ken

Whilst I fully anticipated the signing announcement followed immediately by this press release (it being a good day for both seeing as there's still time to sell more shirts and tickets before Saturday) the key phrase in this was the reaffirmation of the intent to bring in a striker before the end of the window.

Parky's built a decent defence, but we will need more up front before the season is over.

To battle back from two goals down and earn a point away from home against our Lancashire rivals Preston North End firmly underlines the character we have within the camp.

I thought we did enough to come back into the game and win it, and we can consider ourselves unfortunate not to have maintained our 100% record away from home.

Over 4,000 travelling Wanderers fans made the short trip and were magnificent throughout the game. Your support – home and away – helps and inspires the players.

We now go into the international break in sixth position of the table – and I’m pretty sure we would have all settled for that before the season kicked off.

I have to say that this transfer window has perhaps been one of the more challenging ones in my experience.

Strikers are a prized commodity and it is obvious to see why managers and owners are reluctant to sell them.

To gauge the state of the market you only need to look at some of the Premier League teams who have loaned players to Championship sides. The kinds of wages they are commanding, reportedly in the region of £40,000 to £80,000 a week and the huge fees clubs are paying, are quite frankly mind blowing and perfectly illustrate the challenges we are facing and the ever increasing competitiveness at the higher end of the table.

We worked very hard on three deals leading up to the loan window closing on Friday which would have given the manager plenty of options up front.

That said, we managed to bring in the manager’s prime target in Christian Doidge, whom we are absolutely delighted in welcoming to the University of Bolton Stadium.

We were very close with two other forwards, Liam Boyce of Burton Albion and Derby County’s David Nugent, and we will definitely seek out options again for January.

We had a deal agreed with Derby for Nugent but he ultimately decided that he wanted to fight for his place there. While Burton decided that they wanted Boyce to remain with them despite our placing of a seven-figure bid.


The recruitment of Christian brings our total number of senior new arrivals at the club this summer to 14, which has improved the overall quality of the squad and given the manager more options when selecting a team.

Christian was very highly valued at Forest Green Rovers, which is easy to see why considering his prolific strike rate. He was on the manager’s and recruitment team’s radar for quite a long time and it was a case of sheer persistence on our part to get the deal over the line ahead of the 5pm deadline. I am sure all our fans will welcome him to the club.

I’d also like to wish Connor Hall every success with his loan spell at our Lancashire neighbours Accrington Stanley. As the manager has said, Connor has outgrown under 23s football and he will definitely benefit from league football as part of his ongoing education. We will be closely watching his progress at Stanley.

We now have the break going into the weekend ahead of the international fixtures which gives the players an opportunity to take a short, well-earned rest from competitive action but you can rest assured that they will be working hard to continue the excellent progress they have made going into the fixture against QPR on Saturday 15 September at the University of Bolton Stadium.

After such a good start to the season it feels somewhat frustrating that we have a weekend free of domestic football, but I suppose it does give an opportunity for the players to have a well-earned rest from competitive action.

They haven’t let up at the training ground and I know the manager and staff have been working very hard with the players as usual in readiness for the QPR game on Saturday 15th September at the University of Bolton Stadium.

We have a couple of players representing their countries during this break and I’d like to wish Josh Magennis all the best for his duty with Northern Ireland, who take on Bosnia & Herzegovina and Israel, while I must congratulate our under 18s ‘keeper Callum James for his call-up to Wales under 19s for their two matches against their Republic of Ireland counterparts.

Our impressive start to the season has been recognised elsewhere with both the manager and Ben Alnwick being shortlisted for the Sky Bet Championship August Manager and Player of the Month respectively. Both of these nominations are fully deserved.

It was also pleasing to see both Pawel Olkowski and Mark Beevers make it into Sky Sports’ team of the month for August, this XI was based on the match statistics from each player.

This recognition is most pleasing to see as it validates our own optimism. One thing I can assure you all though is that there will be no complacency and we will strive to make September an even better month.

So, please ensure that you continue to support the lads both home and away as all of you really make a difference.

The atmosphere generated by the Wanderers fans at Preston North End was absolutely superb and even at 2-0 down you never wavered. That level of backing and noise inspires the players.

Last week, I saw an impressive stat which shows that we currently have the third highest average away support in the Championship. Only Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City have a greater average.

Let’s keep this up and look to build our home attendances too.

Earlier this week, we were delighted to confirm that the club and hotel will be staging the World Final of the IberCup in May next year.

Over 300 of the best youth teams in the world will participate in this tournament, with many of them staying at Bolton Whites.

We look forward to staging this prestigious tournament and a huge congratulations must go to the hotel general manager Suzanne Speak and her team for their hard work in ensuring that the tournament organisers selected our venue.

Finally, I look forward to seeing you all back at the University of Bolton Stadium a week on Saturday for our return to action against QPR.

I’m sure that like me you will have all really missed watching Bolton Wanderers in action at the weekend.
The international break does have its benefits, in that the players can enjoy a well-deserved rest from competitive action, but given the tremendous start we’ve experienced we didn’t want the break to happen just yet!
That said, the players have worked tremendously hard on the training ground and it does give that little bit of extra time for the new players in the squad to get to know their team mates better and for them to acclimatise to their new surroundings.
They are all eager to get back out on to the field of play at the University of Bolton Stadium and resume from where they left off.
Saturday’s opponents, QPR, are at the other end of the table and will be looking to try and build up some momentum to get points on the board. I expect the game to be a tough encounter and one which we must be at the top of our game to get something from the contest.
As we saw at Preston, just before the break, our travelling army of fans really helped inspire the players to bounce back into the game. Every one of you who was at Deepdale really played your part.
On Saturday, we need every single one of you at the University of Bolton Stadium to make the atmosphere as loud and as passionate as it can be. You will make the difference!
If you haven’t already got your tickets for the match you can do so now by clicking here and ordering them online or by visiting Bolton Central in person.
Alternatively, if you would like to try one of our fantastic award winning hospitality packages, why not give our Sales Team a call on 01204 673761 or email [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to discuss the various options.
I’d also like to remind you that it’s still possible to buy a 2018/19 Bolton Wanderers season ticket and you can still make a big saving compared to buying tickets on a match by match basis.
Every single penny that is spent on match tickets and season tickets gets reinvested into the playing squad and will help the manager strengthen the team. Click here for more details.
The weekend just gone marked the 130th anniversary of the first Football League round of matches. The history books will always show that Bolton Wanderers Football Club were one of the founder members and it is something that we are very proud of. Indeed, one of our own home grown players, Kenny Davenport, had the honour of scoring the league’s first ever goal. That honour is permanently remembered in a plaque that was placed near to the original site of Pikes Lane, our former ground prior to moving to Burnden Park in 1895, almost two years ago.
Although the game has changed and society has progressed significantly over those 130 years, the love and passion of football has never faltered and it’s imperative that as the custodian of this great football institution I make sure the club can continue to entertain the good people of Bolton for many more years to come.
I look forward to seeing you at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday.
Be loud, be proud and get behind the boys.
Kind regards,
Ken

I have of course seen this evening's Bolton News article and I am very disappointed that Stuart Wilson and Michael Henson of Blu Marble Capital Ltd have decided to reject my offer to repay the loan they originally made to the club through Sportshield Ltd and place the club in administration.

The amount received by the club was £4m and l offered to repay this plus substantial interest. Unfortunately, this offer was rejected.

As they come to understand and appreciate the consequences and repercussions of this action, l feel sure that they will live to regret their actions for what can only have been personal reasons as their actions do not make commercial sense.

As l understand it they are currently taking legal action against their own lawyers in respect of a negligence claim on the original transaction with Sportshield Ltd and are expecting to receive substantial compensation from the lawyers' PI insurance and this may explain their actions.

They will now need to fund the club administration going forward, which will take a minimum of three months and will automatically put the club in a two-year transfer embargo and a minimum immediate points deduction of 12 points.

In my opinion, their actions will substantially reduce the value of the club in respect of any future sale and will make it far more difficult to find a future investor/buyer.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the three debenture holders who all agreed to make concessions in order to try and reach a settlement with Blu Marble, but unfortunately these were not accepted and they will all now play a major part in the administration discussions going forward.

I will continue to do everything possible to help the club and have let the administrators know that l will do my best to assist them.

Kind regards

The same fans saying "parky should walk, he doesnt deserve this!" Are the same ones absolutely blasting his style of play and management style 12 months ago.

I even saw one Bolton fan saying "wheres all the fucking noncey pro anderson cunts now!" And another saying for the andersons to die.

Ffs.

Seriously.

Is this what it has come down to?  At our darkest hour we are turning on each other just so we can say "i told you fucking so!"

For what it is worth, i still genuinely do think he (KA) did try to pay them plus interest but they feel they can make more out of the club by doing this.  By they i mean blu marble.

And if this does happen tomorrow but we win on saturday, i know its a big fucking if......we will still be on the same points as this time last season with a far better squad.  Thats IF we get a 12 point deduction.

Everyone saying RIP and the end is nigh meeds to get a fucking grip.  We will still be here in the morning and the morning after that.  And it is down to the fans now to stand together and make sure shit like this doesnt happen again.

Protest.   Bring your piss soaked bed sheets with blu marble out, fuck off andersons, whatever.  But turning on each other for two minutes of self gratification is not going to help the cause or improve bwfc's situation.

The larger question is what DeanO's responsibility is in this.  He made the promises and KA has seemingly tried to negotiate a close to this.  Hopefully this will be resolved before administration... often it goes down to the wire... but it may not be KA's fault... rather DeanO's.  And Johnny is right...  let's get behind the club and be somewhat nicer to each other.

I've learned not to believe anything Ken says , he offered to pay the full amount plus interest but they said no? Oh aye
Lets see if Eddie or someone sorts a deal out before the disaster of administration.
Not being able to sign anyone for 2 years would completely screw us for 3 seasons

It's good to know you seem to have decided who did what to whom and why already, so I'll just sit back whilst this latest drama in the Anderson saga unfolds.

Totally agree, well said Johnny.

As you can see above we also have our own idiots that come rushing on here to gloat and call Anderson a "cunt".

As long as they are right they really don't give a fuck about the club.

True fans - yeah sure they are.

I am not one of those who have used the C word to describe Anderson, however I would point out that there are plenty of Anderson's critics who are genuine fans of the club and believe it is in the club's interest to get rid.
It's presumptive to assume they have not got the club's best interests at heart and it's a cheap shot to suggest that because they would prefer a different approach than you, they are not supporters.
