    Lion of Vienna Suite - LOVpod Episode 32

    in Soccer

    This week's episode of the Lion of Vienna Podcast maybe a bit shorter, but it's still just as packed with Bolton Wanderers chat as Chris is joined, once again, by Rob and the returning DownTheMannyRd Tom.

    The pod gets underway with a discussion on yet another defeat, as the Whites fell to a 2-0 loss against Burnley.

    Then came a preview of Tuesday night's game against Birmingham City, with a brief chat about the Leeds United match next Saturday.

    With manager Neil Lennon now being at the club a year, the lads celebrated his first anniversary by assesing how he's done so far and what the futrue holds.

    Finally, there was a brief round up of news as it seems Zach Clough is set to sign a new long-term contract and the search for that elusive striker continues. All before the show is seen out with a game of guess who.

    Lion of Vienna Suite - LOVpod Episode 31

    in Soccer

    Despite a very boring international break, the lads still power through to bring you over an hour of Bolton Wanderers chat. This week Chris is joined by tech wiz Rob and a duo of Liams, LOVpod regular Liam O'Meara and debutant Liam Hatton, founder of fellow Wanderers site Trotters Blog.

    Despite some initial recording difficulties - we'll blame the software, rather than the supposed tech wiz - the boys preview Saturday's fixture at Burnley, then take a look back at the latest striker transfer updates as the search for a new one continues. Neil Lennon's comments following the QPR match, which have landed him in hot water with The FA, were also on the agenda.

    With a lack of anything else to discuss, a special feature was introduced this week, as the cast run through their all-time Bolton XI, before rounding off events with a game of Guess Who and this week's Twitter question.

    Lion of Vienna Suite - LOVpod Episode 30

    in Soccer

    On LOVpod Episode 30, Chris is joined by tech wiz Rob and the man behind Talk Trotters, Alastair, who comes in for his second appearance on the show. This weeks pod is very Southern centric, which means we actually had real life witnesses to Saturday's defeat.

    The boys drill down into Bolton Wanderers' 4-3 defeat at Queens Park Rangers, directing Neil Lennon's team selection as Darren Pratley and Dorian Dervite both returned to injury. Francesco Pisano's half time departure, Ben Amos' dip in form and the pair of Gary Madine and Liam Feeney actually, against all the odds, finding some form in front of goal. Oh, and the fact we lost to a last minute goal.

    That's all before discussing the Whites rumoured transfer targets, including Adam Hamill, Michael Tonge and Shola Ameobi, another possible takeover bid and the state of ticket prices in the English game, as Rob describes his experience as he tried to support the Twenty's Plenty campaign ran by the FSF. 

    Proceedings are brought to a close with a game of Guess Who and a discussion on possible changes ahead of next week's visit to Burnley.

    in Soccer

    In Episode 29 of the #LOVpod, Chris is joined by latest debutant Matt, for the second week in a row Liam and stand in tech wiz Rob, for another fine episode of the best Bolton Wanderers podcast around.

    Next up the lads looked forward to Saturday's trip to Loftus Road to face Queens Park Rangers, which touches on a planned national protest against the price of away tickets.

    In the third section the boys take a closer look at the ongoing striker saga at Wanderers, with the likes of Yann Kermogant and Igor Vetokele continuing to be linked to the Macron Stadium. 

    All that before rounding proceedings off with a double dose of Guess Who and examining your views in this week's Twitter Question.

    in Soccer

    Dan takes a brief break from his freshers week to bring you episode 28 of the #LOVpod. The best Bolton Wanderers podcast.

    Here's stand in tech wizard rob to tell you what went down:

    In Episode 28 of the LOVpod Chris is joined by Liam and Rob as tech-wiz, as Dan moves into the big world to start University. 

    The boys chat over the midweek draw with Sheffield Wednesday, followed by discussing the fallout from the 4-1 debacle at Huddersfield Town. 

    They also have their say on Wanderers' looming striker crisis, due to the injuries to both Zach Clough and Emile Heskey, which leaves Gary Madine as our only fit natural, first team striker.

    Our historically dire away form and what Neil Lennon can possibly do to turn things around were both also discussed in great detail. That's all followed by a new record breaking game of Guess Who!

    Natural Hair, Is it Professional or Not?

    Lion of Vienna Suite - LOVpod Episode 23

    in Soccer

    Sir Chris Manning returns as host this week, and he is joined by Dan, Tom and Elliot as they discuss what has been a rather depressing week in the world of Bolton Wanderers.

    First port of call was to briefly discuss the Whites slumping out of the Captial One Cup to Burton Albion, although there was much sadder stuff to come. Next up in segment one, the dissection of our embarrassing defeat to Middlesbroughwas talked about in great detail.

    In segment two it was the thing you've all been waiting for. Tim Ream is leaving for Fulham, and a certain member of the podcast isn't taking it well. He expressed his deep sadness in a rather beautiful, unexpected way. The rest of the lads spoke a lot of sense with their feelings of the move. Then the players coming in on the Ream money were discussed, as the group detailed their excitement at the potential of Francesco Pisano and Arsenal's Wellington Silva. The past of new trialist, Courtney Meppem-Walter, was debated over and the segment concluded with a discussion on the progress of youngster Jamie Thomas.

    Segment three was a brief affair, as the group basically shouted profanaties at Dougie Freedman whilst pretending to preview Saturday's clash with Nottingham Forest.

    Last but not least, Guess Who? was played and the Question of the Week was answer by you and them, with some great answers all over.
