    To be fair I would be pretty annoyed too.

    He's turned down several other clubs to move as manager, they have sold about their best 6 players and not replaced them.

    He has every right to be abit peeved!

    Oh yeah, and he's living in Barnsley...

    Have a feeling Wolves are going to be a dangerous team this season.

    Just looking at the calibre of player they've brought in (a club record £15m on Ruben Neves from Porto, Diogo Jota from Atletico Madrid) and a head coach directly from Porto.

    They're also just about to sign a Brazilian striker called Leo Bonatini who has bettered 1 goal in 2 games in his last 2 seasons - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A9o_Bonatini

    Last season Helder Costa looked a hell of a player at this level and signing the experienced John Ruddy, who knows all about getting out of this league, was a great move.

    Good luck to em.

    This league seems to get harder each year. We're in a minority now, where it comes to being a team who's benefitted from PL money. But look at last season; it can be done with a strong structure, a patient chairman, a knowledgeable manager and a team of collective quality. This could be the start of a few years of progression.

    Top half at 11/8 sticks out.

    I'll have a go at that.

    Win play-offs at 28/1 sticks out to me, given promotion odds are 12/1 and I can't see us breaking the top two.

    Very much an outside punt but if we do make the top six somehow you'd be able to then put some bets on the other three teams and guarantee yourself some profit most likely.

    Bolton's team for tonight's friendly:

    #BWFC XI to face @MarineAFC: Turner, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist.

    I have a feeling they might struggle.

    But A. Trialist always scores - could be 10-0 to Bolton?!

    Anyone else think Leeds new manager looks like an unshaven Phillipe Montanier?.
