the history of this fixture is immense.

we battled up from the lower leagues together. wembley 91, a group of bolton fan's van being destroyed by baseball bats after they went to the wrong part of birkenhead afeter a cancelled 80s game, john mcginley and david lee, travelling to burnden park one of the hairiest away trips you could contemplate, all the way to fat sam and them singing songs about us even when they were well into their premier league stay.

that game in april 95 when we we beat them in front of a packed PP and have the premier league in our hands, and a potential title decider v robson's boro on the last day was a stand out, if only for the way we proper tranmered the season up in the last 5 games.

but for me bolton has always been the biggest game of any season. and the drama surrounding their club only adds to the spice. cannot wait for this game

I was always brought up to hate Bolton. Them, Wrexham, Crewe and (weirdly) any Nottingham teams. If we don't absolutely snot these on Saturday and send them home crying, we've done something terribly wrong.

As much as I don't want to see any football club go out of business but they got them self's into the mess there in so let's hope we can take advantage and get the 3 points and help our goal difference. And our forwards can find the net and start to install confidence so 2.0 for me .and if Bolton fall out of league as bury may do so be it and the same for bury .tranmere is my concern and my only concern

Most likely Bolton will have seven or eight new players who we couldn't afford signed on by Friday
they have the knack of spending 💰 money they haven't got.

I think it will be a really exciting game. Bolton's kids kept Coventry at bay last week and they'll be well up for this - nothing to lose and a big chance to impress before they make the numbers up, and I would expect in front of a massive and noisy away end.
If we play like we did at Portsmouth I would expect us to win, but anything less and we could be in for a nasty surprise.
I'm going for 2-0 to us.

Bolton indeed did keep Coventry at bay but think they had little bit of the footballing god's on their side as Coventry had three goals disallowed,once is good twice very good fortune three something was on Bolton's side.

Yes, Coventry were pretty unlucky. You could also point out that Portsmouth had the ball in the net against us 5 times (3 offsides) and hit the post.

Most likely not. Can't see too many of the old players turning out until the wage situation is resolved. The kids did OK on Saturday but most will also be playing tonight, they don't normally play more than once a week so fitness may be an issue on Saturday. I expect they will park the bus at PP so its up to our forwards to break them down, I think most of us will be expecting a good win by at least 2 goals.

I have learnt not to expect anything in football .I would like to think we can get our first points on the board Saturday but as they are full of kids we are full of new signings who are learning about each other and mm still as yet don't know his best side so let's hope we start to gel and get the points

Yes but it only takes a signature and money transfer and a press of a button to send information of the takeover to the EFL and twenty four hours later it's done and dusted and the EFL seem to be leaning towards Bolton more so than other teams perhaps.

Still hopefully it won't happen till next week let's get our game out of the way first it would be a good chance to get our first win in the league under our belt. Mind you if we get beat it will be melt on our football forums on Monday.

Big gate. Trotters should bring over 2000 and Bolton always attract the casual rovers supporter.

Just need to bully the young lads and our quality will show through. Hit them hard and early do not let them into the game... perkins and banks need to hammer anything that moves in the midfield let them know we are there. They will panic and make mistakes

After last nights shambolic first-half display maybe we shouldn't get too carried away with how we will hammer Bolton this Saturday !
Yes, it's early days, and most of us realise that the team needs more time to bed itself in, but we aren't even doing the basics that well at the moment. Not sure MM knows what his best starting 11 are, and our lack of quality in front of goal is problematic.
Some of the new lads that have come in may be able to help the team along, but others, at the moment, seem a bit of a waste of a contract.
I have my doubts about Payne, Ray, Ponticelli and maybe even Potter, and we will have to see how Woods performs when he is back to fitness.
We know however, that Sid and Manny did ok together last season, and Scotty seemed more confident with them in front of him.
Rides really seems to be struggling at the moment, and maybe this step up is a step too far for him now ?
I think it's a shame that Jay did not stay at the club because he did give pretty solid performances, and currently we seem a bit lightweight down the middle.
It's a bit concerning, hopefully it will all click soon, but if it doesn't MM will have to try to come up with something to help keep us in L1.

Fully agree Longstanding. Ponticelli looks like he has won a talent competition to train and play with a football side and he cant believe his luck. Initially thought Ray looked good but also having doubts, id be happier with Nelson back in

+1 but MM last night on Ray: "I thought Ray put a great performance in for the whole 90 and showed what a good young centre half he is" .. suggests Ray's place in the team is nailed on for now. Think Sid deserves a go, thought it was unfair to drop him when he had to play RB

Interesting quote that. Possibly reverse psychology, making a player feel good when about to be dropped! Not knocking Ray but I'd certainly welcome Sid back at centre half.

So much is being made of new players bedding in but in the lower divisions with so many short contracts and use of loans that is a common place situation. When it comes to the Bolton game our preparation got the season has been far more stable and we have far fewer new faces on show. If we do not take all the points on Satirday at would mean considering the possibility that the team is just not good enough. One game will not answer the question but it could justify at least considering that possibility.
As others have posted it is yet to be seen whether Woods and Potter are good additions and Pontecelli is already looking as if he is just not up to it. Caprice's injury is a blow and the long term absence of Ellis likewise, but I am not sure that any of these are significant factors in terms of our form. Nor is it just the new names that have questions makes against them. Rides and Banks for example, have looked to be struggling and the formers defensive frailties were often apparent even two divisions lower.
A loss on Saturday would further raise question marks

From comments on here, social media etc the majority of Rovers fans would be happy to survive this division this season. That in itself tells you most of us are acutely aware of the possibility we might not be good enough. It'll be a few months before we can start drawing conclusions about that though, even if we thump Bolton on Saturday.

I do not disagree with that, my point was that a defeat would add weight to the question but it would not answer the question. I also agree that the majority would,rightly, settle for staying up with a struggle. There are some however who seem convinced that the only problem is that it is early season and all is just part of the team gelling

Here is my analysis

- Win on Saturday - heading for low mid table safety
- Draw on Saturday - relegation battle
- Loose on Saturday - Relegation candidates

Of course, nothing is decided in August but this is a deffo six pointer. Most fans, in a poll I did on the Cowsheds site, reckon we will struggle but survive this season (poll taken before Kick off in the Dale game). I tend to agree with them. I also have sympathy with some of the views expressed that we came up a season too soon, albeit I am delighted to be back in League 1.

The problem for me is the two most critical parts of the pitch, defence and attack, look unsettled at the moment. Ferrier had a good game on Tuesday and I am hoping he can have an impact on Saturday. CBT also showed promise. However, it’s a team game and, as we are learning, at this level the team have to be at their best from kick-off to the final whistle.

Hopefully Ferrier plays because just before he got subbed Tuesday, he landed funny and jarred his right knee. He was by the bench and said he needed to come off. Played on for a few mins but was then subbed

It's our third game in the league on Saturday don't think any one is thinking we're doomed but as fan's we tend to think around ten games in may tell our fate for the season.

Yes as I stated it's our third game trouble is not winning on Saturday is another game ticked off and before you know it the tenth game comes around before you realize so the sooner we kick on the better.

it's a proper marker game in my opinion. If we fail to beat Bolton's kids (no disrespect) then our confidence would be on the floor, but to me it's a great oppurtunity to pick up 3 points, find the net and take the pressure off & kickstart the season somewhat. Also I'd suspect in a months time they'll have 11 senior professionals playing so beating them then would become a lot more difficult. so we should be grateful we're one of the teams playing them now ( & not in a months time) and have a much better chance of getting a win!!

That being said they will be right up for it and it will be no gimme. Imperative we take our chances when they arrive and the back 5 actually talk to each other

Yes you are right in what you say, we're playing against team perhaps with few senior players plus younger players but if those in Bolton's team step up a pace or two with speed and determination against a team who walk on the pitch thinking it's in the bag walk around the pitch and before you know it you're two down in the first six minutes it's not going to be easy.

So come on Tranmere be fired up for this one, once you step on the pitch stick one past their keeper in the first five minutes and go for it.

By all accounts this Bolton side has been very competitive for the first hour or so of their matches before fading towards the end. We should win but this has got banana skin all over it and we may need to be patient. Any noticeable anxiety in the stands or amongst the team will play right into their hands.

Mullin, Ferrier and Blackett Taylor as a front three and we’ll cause them problems.

Need to drop Morris. Solid player but IMO doesn’t do enough up front to warrant being favoured over one of the above.

Jenno perhaps as the advanced midfielder ahead of Perkins and Banks or Potter

Think I would start with Mullin today as main striker based on if we're playing a side of no senior player's bar two or three . The main reason being Mullin is an older head than some of our other players and this could count also perhaps bit like Norwood's approach to the game.

Just read on a Bolton orientated site that they're down to the bare bones, carrying injuries. Their medical staff voiced concerns the pressure being put on their youngsters could have adverse affects. They considered having the game suspended.
Anyone though can be organised and stick ten men behind the ball, and as we're struggling to score I think it could be 0-0 or 1-0.
But don't think whatever the result it will have much bearing on the season. Remember last season when we were eight points adrift of the play-offs. Suddenly seven wins got us back there and the rest is history. It's a marathon not a sprint!

He was being targeted by their players. He should have been sent off for a horror tackles first half. It was to protect him more than anything

Perkins and Morris have to be separated by the ref and Scotty gets a grip of morris. Seems like a very heated argument

Can only beat whats in front of you. Little boost for the players confidence. Finally finding the net and any win against Bolton is a good one. All played well. Ferrier for his two goals (second was class) was MOM for me although a few ran him very close. Saw Morris and Perkins getting pulled apart but didnt see what caused it. Only slight annoyance would be the amount of silly uncalled for fouls we gave away. One last thing- why was the Bolton muppet allowed to dance around the pitch for what seemed like ages before any steward did anything about it. Poor show from stewards that.

The result was the most important thing today, but 5-0 is more a reflection of how lightweight Bolton were, rather than how great we played.

Ferrier was lucky not to get a red. It wasn’t that his foul was particularly bad, it was clumsy, it was that it came just after he had been dispossessed by a Bolton player. Also, what was the fracas towards the end between Perkins & Morris? And why did Banks not respect Scotty’s role as Captain.

Onwards and upwards but still lots of questions unanswered.

Good result today. As previously mentioned, you can only beat the team that's in front of you.


O/T Norwood gets a GOOAAL for Ipswich.

I suspect that the Bolton side may have been the weakest ever fielded for a Div 1 fixture. If we had lost it would have been catastrophic for confidence. As it is, it does not tell us much about how well equipped we for this division but it does release a bit of pressure and that can only be for the good.
At least it has sorted out the goal difference. It will be interesting to see on Tuesday if it gives a positive injection to play.
Unless Bolton are in a position soon to sign players they could be out of totally out touch of others by November

Bolton hardly that much of a push over, Wycombe only won 2-0 and Coventry drew! Great win today u still have to beat the 11 in front of you, thought the first cane at a good time just before the break, longer they held out for the harder it would have got and the second just after was even better timed and killed them off.

But people got carried away with the "end of days" when we lost a few games! Works both ways.

Coventry didn't beat Bolton, so clearly they underperformed.

However, the aim is to gel, improve and hopefully bed in to this league. And as others have said, you can only try and beat the team you play against.the goals should help with confidence. After 52 years of watching Tranmere, I can cope with a less than perfect first year back at league one. And without getting carried away , which is why I wasn't moaning after the poor start.

Agreed - almost impossible to judge the performance today given how weak the opposition was. If I was to hazard a guess I would say that we did not play that great considering but then it is what it is and great that Morgan got a couple.
The main thing is 3 points.

Important to get the win regardless of the situation with Bolton, which is none of our doing. Did think that, on the whole, the Bolton support was terrific today; I'd like to think we'd be as passionate and committed under such crappy circumstances; every team has it's share of muppet followers, but don't let that overshadow the majority of genuine, die-hard followers. The "kids" kept us at bay for a while, with the first save from their keeper coming on 32 minutes, but as seems to be the pattern, they ran out of guile. Of course there'll be tougher games, but it'll inject a huge amount of confidence into the team.
Perkins was having a pop at Morris who tried to be clever on the ball, but gave it away.
It's the type of atmosphere and rivalry that gives spice to life; I for one would like to see Bolton stick around so we can enjoy more of the same. However, it was strangely subdued for a time, from a Tranmere perspective, once we were out of sight; perhaps it was just a bit of perspective on the fact that we weren't playing the strongest of Bolton sides, even a little bit of empathy (or is that just the humanist in me!).

the Bolton boss let fly after the final whistle, condemning the decision to let the game go ahead.

Parkinson and his medical staff wrote to the EFL voicing concern at the physical toll taken on his young players but was told the game would not be suspended.

“Asking young players to go again is not right,” he fumed. “We sent an email to the EFL explaining our concerns about the welfare of the young players playing these games in quick succession. We were told we had to play the game.

As I posted before the game, it was a win and a decent performance which I was looking for. To be honest, we could and should have had more goals but, that's being greedy.

Whilst Ferrier can count himself lucky to stay on the pitch, there was IMO an even worst Bolton tackle on I think it was Manny, where he deliberately raked him down his achillle's after loosing the ball that, was a definite red.

Hopefully a confidence booster for Tuesday night

The flare up came about with Morris doing a bit of showboating and putting Sid in trouble and Perks let him know about. Reinforces the opinion of an outfield captain?

Bolton's youngsters deserved a standing ovation at the final whistle.....well done for your efforts and commitment against men.
Having played football at different levels and knowing the gulf in leagues is immense I commend their efforts.

We played the first 35 mins playing balls into the box hoping somebody would be on the end of them instead of actually trying to pick a man out.

Morris continues to try to pull the ball back with his studs, no where near good enough at this level....can't get to the bye line and cross a ball with any quality. A real weak link in the team.

On a plus we got the 3 points and quite rightly so or we may have been reduced to football embarrassment. Our next test against men will again prove what we can offer at this level.

the opposite. perkins showed you dont need an armband to lead.

why people think the captain has mystical powers is beyond me. its a symbolic / administrative role that literally doesnt matter on the pitch

still torn on morris. thought he had a decent game, but im not sold on him completely

I agree, gives good balance to the team too. Just think sometimes he could create more danger than he does.

Job done today, important to get points on the board sooner rather than later and should help with the confidence. Ferrier's 2nd goal was excellent - awareness, strength, skill and finish - and he was my MOM. 50/50 for me on the possible red card.

No complaints after a 5-0 but slightly disappointed we let our professionalism slip a bit towards the end - the argument, Mullin's handball, some sloppy play in midfield etc - though the game was obviously won by then.

the goals are already up on you tube, I liked Ferriers 2nd goal just after the interval, he brought it down well and had the strength power n determination to shrug off the Bolton defender and put it away nicely.
