Gossip begins to heighten amidst takeover rumours for Bolton Wanderers

Alan Nixon has tweeted a Bolton Wanderers takeover rumour that The Football Manc Cave has a little more news on.

Nixon has revealed how Terry Robinson, an experienced English football chairman and director. Is a name on the agenda for possibly being the director of Bolton Wanderers if Football Ventures can complete the takeover deal.

Terry Robinson has been involved in a few clubs including Bury where he was chairman for twenty years. He’s also been involved in Sheffield Utd, Stoke City and Leicester City. Bolton fans may recognise his name from when he was involved in the club a couple of years back. Robinson left us in 2016 but apparently could be making a return.

A source says…

A source close to us has stated how this may be just gossip. Apparently, Robinson has had some conversations with people about Bolton although absolutely no offer has been made. The conversations he’s had were more him giving advice rather than him being asked to re-join the club. He has no idea where the rumours have come from.

I wish I could write this article and just give you my opinion on this rumour and that be it. Unfortunately, the word, ‘if’ in Alan Nixon’s original tweet has taken centre stage for me. This is because Bolton fans are sick of hearing the word ‘if’ when around three weeks ago Football Ventures were supposed to be completing the takeover.

Now we’ve got players refusing to play over still not being paid, no friendlies going ahead and absolutely no news of what’s going on. It’s about time we stopped hearing ‘if’s and but’s’ and more ‘what’s, when’s, where’s.’

It’s such a sad and disappointing time to be a Bolton fan. We are all dreading the start of this coming season because everyone thought that our club would be financially stable by now. Or at least, have the take over completed so we could work on our squad. Instead, the first game of the season is upon us and we barely have a squad.
