    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 33

    in Soccer

    The Lion of Vienna Podcast is back along with it's long lost son.

    Yep, Dan returns this week in what feels like as an eternity, and in great time too, as he has to take over hosting responsibilities with Chris other wise engaged.

    Dan was joined by Liam and new debutant Jamie Moss.

    The show got underway in classic fashion, talking about a Bolton Wanderers defeat, as the 1-0 loss to Birmingham was briefly touched upon. Then affairs were swiftly moved on to the more recent game, a 1-1 draw with Leeds United. The lads analysed the game in great detail, despite only one of them actually being there, leading to some insightful discussion.

    Next up was a round up of the news in Wanderers world, as trio discussed: the signing of Shola Ameobi, Wellington Silva' injury lay off, Liam Trotter being loaned out and scoring, Haydn White scoring his first senior goal and former White Chris Eagles joining Bury.

    The third segment saw a preview of Saturday's must win relegation battle against Preston North End, accompanied with some dreadful Halloween puns.

    Finally, as everything was a bit last minute, there was no guess who or question of the week, but the boys debated the topic of how much is our current predicament Neil Lennon's fault.

    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 29

    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.

    In this week's show they discussed the Whites' dramatic 2-2 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion in great depth, including Gary Madine, Max Clayton, David Wheater, Francesco Pisano and Neil Danns.

    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.

    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.

    Lion of Vienna Suite - LOVpod Episode 20

    in Soccer

    After a rather conspicuous abscene, the #LOVpod is finally back, well at least some of it. Yes, unfortunatley, one of the participants in this weeks episode kind of disapears after an twenty minutes, as his recording cut out. But thanks to Dan's wonderful editing, all the way from the French Riviera, it makes a degree of sense.

    So listen closely as Chris and new boys Tom Wilson and for a bit, Alastair Sledge, discuss the talking points of the last two weeks, including Bolton Wanderers' bad, then much improved pre-season showings, the likes of Stephen Dobbie, Lawrie Wilson and Derik Osede, Darren Pratley being given the captain's arm band and then a certain fund raising campaign for a certain Adam Le Fondre.

    The pod is then brought to a close with a game of guess who and the question of the week, which enquired into the level of concern you have for Wanderers' potential relegation next season. With lots of random ramble in between, we hope you enjoy the return of the #LOVpod.
